I went here for my sister's hen weekend. They accommodated a group as big as ours no problem. The food was delicious, the rooms were lovely and we will definitely be back. We all had a fantastic time, the Fincourt staff were brilliant and they couldn't do enough for us

Had a great welcome at the Fincourt from Jackie with a lovely glass of Guinness. Stayed for the weekend while attending a family wedding at Loughcrew. We had the two bed apartment rather than just a double and single room. The rooms were clean and bright upstairs, tea and coffee provided and nice to have the extra room downstairs &... More

Thank you so much, it was a pleasure to meet you all. We will definitely look at closing the end of the staircase in Hunters Lodge. Some guest like the old rustic appeal, but we should have Hunters Lodge as child friendly as the guest house and the other self catering apartments. Thank you again for your review and your... More

I was recently here on a hen Party. I don't have one single complaint. Jackie, the owner, could not have been nicer to us all. Everything was really clean and the food was to die for. When we first received our menu I didn't think it was great but it was absolutely delicious, everybody enjoyed it. The beds were really... More

The Fincourt earns its #1 rating on Tripadvisor. Our room was clean and comfortable, Jackie was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was tops. The Fincourt is conveniently located in the village, close to restaurants, pubs, and stores.
