The old country house is a perfect example of Traditional Irish hospitality. Ruth and her family provide utmost comfort and a constant supply of tea coffee and hilarious stories to accompany the lovely comfortable lounge space. There is also a lovely terrace outside the connected Old Forge Bar where there is often traditional music and delicious food served.
On Saturday, join us for the Makers Market which opens from 12-2pm. A select group of hand makers from all over the island of Ireland are going to be presenting their gorgeous hand dyed fibre and yarn. We also have sewists exhibiting this retreat with a gorgeous selection of handmade bags for sale.
During the weekend there will be crafts set up for people to try, such as Weaving and Spinning on traditional spinning wheels, courtesy of the Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
There are beautiful walks available in the beautiful countryside of the Glen of Aherlow which are accessible by foot or a short drive away.
We would love to see you there.
