Mary Gorman
The farmhouse is the centre of our working dairy farm and agri- tourism business. Each room is bright and crisp with wonderful grassland views. We have one ground floor room which is very popular with families and guests with mobility problems.
Mary is the hostess, giving everyone a warm welcome. She tunes into peoples needs very quickly and gives a very personal service. A natural story teller.
South County Kildare is only one hour from Dublin, one hour from Glendalough and 45 minutes from Kilkenny. Our proximity to Kildare shopping village is the newest attraction. The races courses of Kildare are all close by.
