We were so impressed with this place! The only bad thing for us was that we only had one night there. The place itself is very special. The location on the river is beautiful and all the animals around the place make it a magical place. I have thought of it many times since coming back to my real life.... More

Four of us stayed one night with Mark & Ann-Marie and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The farm is enchanting, the accommodations were clean, and the hospitality was beyond superb. Mark gave us a local map of the non-touristy things to explore which left us with an unforgettable adventure "off the beaten path". Ann-Marie's breakfast was... More

Ann-Marie and Mark were wonderful hosts during our two night stay. We were delighted with our accommodations and the fabulous breakfasts (porridge was amazing). Their directions and suggestions for exploring the countryside have provided us with wonderful memories of "the real Ireland". The farm itself was a feast of history-Mark's collection of wood, doors, windows, etc spanned multiple centuries. We... More

Mark and Ann -Marie and their family (and animals) were simply the best hosts we have met in all our travels. Besides being a very skilled and talented craftsman and builder, Mark's personality and suggestions were great. From going to the best castle ruins (free- just hanging out there in the country side with sheep grazing all around), To the... More

My husband and I spent 1 night here during our visit to Kilkenny. Lawcus was magical. Mark, one of the owners, warmly welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us an entire itinerary of local options to keep us occupied. You wouldn't find any of these attractions on trip advisor, authentic Irish countryside. We were so busy that we didn't... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it!! Mark and Ann Marie were extremely nice, the farmhouse is adorable and the animals were entertaining. There is an old castle and mills close by, which were fun to explore. I would highly recommend it!!

Mark and Ann Marie Fischer provide a unique experience in a wonderful buccolic setting. Mark is a master carpenter and has created a spectacular refurbishment of a manor house that is as comfortable as it is interestingly furnished with vintage treasures and materials. Set on the King river one can wander throught the countryside visiting 1100AD ruins of old mills... More

we only spent one night at the Lawcus farm and wish we had a chance to extend the stay.The setting was pastoral and it was fun to wander the place and drink in the peacefulness --especially loved the chicken subway <g> The rooms were spotless and the glass ceiling kitchen where culinary magic occurred a bright and airy space.

We knew when we chose to stay at Lawcus Farm that it would be special and it was! The farm had beautiful views everywhere, the kids loved seeing the animals and it was peaceful after long, busy days. Mark and Ann Marie were very warm and gracious. Breakfast was delicious. Short, direct drive into Kilkenny.

We were greeted by our host outside and shown the grounds, given a map of things to see that evening, dinner recommendations, a cup of tea on the porch, shown to our wonderful room with a beautiful view all with the friendliest host imaginable! The farm is beautiful, the animals were great and the garden and views gorgeous! The breakfast... More
