If you want to explore the great outdoors, you are spoilt for choice. There is cycling, kayaking, walking/hiking, golf, horse-riding all within easy reach.

Or if you are for the more gentle activities, there is so much history to explore and so many art and literary festivals around us, not to mind amazing gardens, you will be spoilt for choice.

There are so many hidden gems of history and heritage all within a 20 minute or so drive from Oldfarm.  Lorrha Monastic Village with over 1500 years of history and Redwood Castle are within 2 miles.  Fancroft Mill and Gardens, Bellefield House, Lough Boora Parklands, Birr CastleIrish Workhouse Centre and Portumna Castle and Forest not more than 30 minutes away.

Fancroft Mill & Gardens

Lough Derg, Ireland’s biggest lake is just minutes from us, and the pretty villages along its shoreline are worth exploring.  Definitely enough to amuse and entertain for a couple of days.

There are the popular destinations –  Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny City, Galway City, Cliffs of Moher, Limerick City, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park – all within an hour or two of our home.

Also bear in mind that if you are travelling and sightseeing in Ireland on the first Wednesday of the month… our Office of Public Works has free entry to their sites.
