Inch House, Thurles, Co Tipperary

Inch House, Thurles, Co TipperaryFor many people – especially families who live in cities – an Irish farm stay is just about the most idyllic holiday imaginable.

And you won’t do better than this one, which combines a large tillage farm, a lovingly restored Georgian house and a restaurant that showcases local produce, including their own home-produced black pudding which, unusually, is made with fresh blood (from Crowe’s Farm Meats near Dundrum, who also supply breakfast meats).
