We were one of five couples who stayed together for a week at Farran House; we meet every 18 months or so in a different location, our last was Sweden, but we have been to Italy, California, Ireland, and Scotland as well. We look for a good kitchen with ample utensils, en suite rooms for each couple, an accommodating dining... More

John and Patricia are wonderful hosts and have created a lovely, welcoming home in which to relax, The rooms are oversized with bathrooms to match, amenities similar to those of the Gatsby era. The grounds were similarly beautiful, making it difficult to leave but a pleasure to return. We opted for breakfast to be served each morning and were not... More

I have read the other reviews and don't understand the tiptoe comment or the owners being rude. We had 12 in our group. This is a beautiful, large comfortable home. The grounds are just amazing. We had a tolite break downstairs, called and someone was there right away. We did pay for the breakfast every morning and would have to... More

We had a much anticipated family trip to ireland last August. It centred around a family reunion invloving the coming together of 14 family members from far and wide. It was decided that we would have to stay in style and we should rent a large castle or manor house and Farran House was chosen. The house is stunningly beautiful,... More

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and had a fabulous time. The house was perfect for a big gang of far flung friends who don't see each other very often - we ate (a lot), drank, chatted and sat around the big fire in the drawing room. We easily seated 15 for dinner in the dining room on New... More

My uncle rented this house for a week in March. I was one of 10 guests he invited. The house is spectacular, I was amazed by the scale of the whole place, there is a real sense of Brideshead Revisited about it. The house was spotlessly clean which really pleased my wife and the owners were really helpful. Highlights of... More

We had a family reunion here in November, 4 couples and 5 children from 16-6. The House was fantastic, I have stayed in some manor houses before and found them to be a little dark and dusty but there was something about the layout and proportions of the rooms here that I found very pleasing. The adults rooms were big... More

Over the last five years I must have stayed at Farran House at least 10 times. My husband's company has an office in Cork and he often stays at Farran House, sometimes I accompany him on those business trips and also last June we had a wonderful weekend when took 8 of our friends there to celebrate my husbands 50th...

How anyone could not find John and Patricia gracious hosts is beyond me. I have had the great fortune of staying at Farran House on four occasions now--once in 2003, when our party of 13 booked the entire house, once in 2004, when my daughter and I visited; and twice last summer (2006), when my son and I were exploring...

I agree with the other reviewers about the beauty of Farran House and surrounds however the experience of staying there was far from pleasant. The main problem was that it felt like staying in someones home as unwanted guests, we felt like we were imposing. Our inclination was to tip toe about the place and whisper, our impression that these... More
