About the property

Picture Perfect Getaway For The Whole Family!

"Rogula House" is an amazing country farmhouse nestled into 55 acres of lush, working farmland. The house has just been renovated and with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, it can comfortably sleep up to 8 people. It is located just a few miles from some of South East Ireland's treasured beaches and seaside villages, including "Booley" and "Dollar" Bays, Duncannon, Ballyhack and Arthurstown. It is surrounded by history being located just a few miles from landmarks such as the famed Hook Lighthouse (Europe's oldest working lighthouse), as well as the 11th and 12th Century abbeys, Tintern and Dunbrody. For dining and entertainment, the "Hollow Bar & Restaurant" is only a mile down the road and serves some of the finest fresh fish in the country, whereas the critically acclaimed "Dunbrody House Hotel & Restaurant", owned by the famous chef Kevin Dundon, is only a couple of miles away. Nearby villages of Ramsgrange, Duncannon and Ballyhack provide grocery stores and delightful local pubs! The towns of Wexford and New Ross are both short drives away and for American visitors, New Ross is home to the famed "Dunbrody Famine Ship" on which JFK's great grandfather Patrick Kennedy left for American in 1849).

Rogula House offers the perfect vacation getaway for an experience you will treasure for years to come - GUARANTEED!! Your gracious hosts, John and Carly Murphy

5 star property in a wonderful quite position

  • 5 of 5

John the owner and Eileen the caretaker both made us feel very welcome. The property itself has quality furnishings with lots of space and light. The location is very quiet but still close to local amenities, beaches and tourist attractions. Would not hesitate to return and would highly recommend.

Beautiful house, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rogula house. It is beautifully furnished and well equipped. The view from the living room is just amazing and many interesting places to visit are only a short drive away, not to mention a very decent seafood restaurant just down the road.. Many thanks to Eileen who prepared the house for us: everything was spotless and the flowers from her garden were really lovely.

Und das Ganze noch auf Deutsch:

Wir haben unseren einwöchigen Aufenthalt in Rogula House sehr genossen. Geschmackvoll renoviert und eingerichtet liegt dieses bestens ausgestattete Haus in einer ländlich abgelegenen Gegend mit einem wunderbaren Blick über Felder, Wiesen , Hecken und Rindviecher. Viele attraktive Ausflugsziele sind mit dem Auto in kurzer Zeit erreichbar und ein sehr ordentliches Fischrestaurant ist auch nicht weit.

Vielen Dank an Eileen, die alles für uns vorbereitet hat. Das Haus war blitzsauber und die frischen Blumen waren eine sehr nette Geste.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better first time experience in Ireland. The house was spacious, clean and inviting - plenty of room for 5 kiddos/teenagers and adults.....oh, and the cows were so much fun! We also really appreciated the privacy and space for the kids to play outdoors w/o worries. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great home base while they experience the beautiful sites, food and people of Ireland!

Great renovation - great house for kids.

  • 5 of 5

This place suited us really well. There's a chipper at the end of the road which covered us for the first night when we had a late check-in. I had a little trouble with the check-in instructions through John (we weren't allowed to check in until 6pm but had to check out by 10am) but all in all it was a nice stay.

A lovely, spacious house.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly a big thank you to John for great communication, easy transaction and a great stay. The house is lovely and the living room is the selling point. With 3 bathrooms and room for 8 the house is a great size and relatively easy to find. It's on the road just opposite the Hollow bar which in itself is a very nice bar / restaurant. We had a lovely week and when we are down again, I would not hesitate to call on John again. Highly recommended.

This is an amazing property to stay at and within an hour of everything in south east Ireland

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this property justice in terms of the spaciousness. The downstairs has an open floor plan with a modern kitchen including a full-sized refrigerator/freezer. The bedrooms and baths were also spacious and modern. The house provided a large screen TV and quite a decent selection of DVD's, along with solid, reasonably speedy internet access via WiFi. We stayed in four places on this trip to Ireland and the beds here were absolutely wonderful with an ample selection of different types of pillows to make everyone happy. Unlike many places in Ireland the property is set well back from the road making for an amazingly quiet place to stay without the road noise we experienced everywhere else. The size of the property also allowed for a nice after dinner stroll that allowed one to stretch their legs without having to venture out on the roads. The property is very well maintained and immaculate. We highly recommend this property to anyone staying in southeast Ireland. We traveled extensively from Kilkenny to Wexford and many places in between with everything within in an hour's drive. Basic necessities can be found in the village of Ramsgrange, about 5 minutes drive. Increasingly larger stores can be found in Welllingtonbridge (15 minutes) and New Ross or Wexford (30 minutes). Anywhere on the Hook peninsula, all the way out to the lighthouse, can be gotten to well within 30 minutes driving. The owner and his family were great to work with. Overall, this is the best VBRO property we have stayed in from the US to Ireland to Spain to Australia.
