Mobarnane House

Mobarnane is a peaceful Country Manor House, providing the perfect rural retreat in Tipperary's Golden Vale, surrounded on three sides by mountains , set in 60 acres of pasture, spring flowering woodland and landscaped gardens. Guests are encouraged to visit the lake, where swans, ducks and moorhens nest and, if patient, they can watch otters play.

Less than two hours from Rosslare, Cork and Shannon, the house is an ideal centre for this largely unexplored area. Ancient Ireland is represented by the famous Rock of Cashel (7 miles), Holy Cross Abbey and Cahir Castle. There are wonderful scenic drives over the Knockmealdown Mountains to Lismore and back via the Nire Valley and historic Clonmel. Or fill a whole day with Kilkenny's Craft Trail, visiting workshops, potteries and glassworks.

Lovingly restored, Mobarnane has large rooms with original plasterwork, modern bathrooms and imaginative food. Fresh flowers from the garden and high quality bed linens (some antique) show Sandra's attention to detail in this comfortable, welcoming 18th century home.
