Ballaghtobin

Set in parkland in the midst of a five hundred acre working farm, this immaculately maintained house has been in the Gabbett family for three hundred and fifty years.


Graciously proportioned rooms are beautifully furnished and the spacious bedrooms - which Catherine Gabbett has decorated stylishly - all have antique furniture and every comfort, including lovely bathrooms with bath and overbath shower, and tea/coffee trays.


The house is surrounded by large gardens, with a hard tennis court, croquet lawn - and even a ruined Norman church - for guests’ use. No dinners, but Catherine will direct you to one of several good restaurants within a short drive.

Rooms 3 (all en-suite & no smoking, 2 family rooms); B&B €50 pps, ss €10. Children welcome (under 3s free in parents' room; cot available without charge). Pets allowed by arrangement (stay in bedroom, no charge). Free broadband wifi. Garden, walking, tennis, croquet. Fly fishing, golf and hunting/shooting nearby. Closed Nov-Feb. MasterCard, Visa.
