Rose and I spent a lovely 3 nights with Brid and Jim at Glenraha Farmhouse. My wife is a ex-farm girl so staying on a working Dairy Farm was absolutely fantastic and thanks to Jim Rose was quickly back into milking the cows. Thank you Brid and Jim for a 11/10 stay. All the best.

Ein sehr schönes und ruhig gelegenes B&B; geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Zimmer sowie neues Bad; ausgezeichnetes Frühstück mit Milch der Hofkühe. Familie Fitzpatrick gibt gerne Erläuterungen zur Landwirtschaft und führt Gäste durch die Ställe. Herzliche Aufnahme und Verabschiedung.

My mom and I stayed here near the start of a two week journey through Ireland. It was for two nights during the first week of June. Brid and Jim's place is quiet and in an open setting with fields all around. Our room was comfortable although slightly cramped with the two beds and our luggage. No mind, though, Brid and family were very spacious in their welcoming. The breakfast room is a large, bright space and enjoyable to sit in. Brid prepared us an excellent breakfast both days, which we took our time consuming. During the day, we visited Jerpoint Abbey on the way to Kilkenny. Both places are a must see. Per Brid's suggestion, we had dinner at the Rising Sun B&B and Bar in nearby Mullinavat. We were in luck since it was a Tuesday night and a dozen or so local musicians gathered there for their weekly jam. This was traditional Irish singing and playing! Brid, Jim and family are hard working dairy farmers who come from a long line of farmers and they seem to have been able to skillfully combine that noble craft with the art of good tourist hospitality. Thank you, folks!

Home was nice. Room was lovely. Food was good. Hosts were wonderful. Loved the setting. Brid & James were kind & helpful. They had brochures and ideas of places to go. We enjoyed touring the dairy and helping out. They also showed us some not well known local sights. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would stay again if I ever had another chance to visit Ireland.

Hello Jeri and Jennalee, Thank you for your lovely review . We are enjoying lovely warm weather here although the grass is starting to burn up which will put pressure on the Fodder situation . It was lovely to have you both spend time here and please god might see you again with your grandchildren. Brid and Jim Glenraha farmhouse

Our hostess looked at me as if I had taken leave of my senses when I asked to be in on the morning milking. They provided me with boots and jacket and off I went. Jim was great explaining the whole operation and providing a fresh jug of delicious milk for my breakfast.Wonderful breakfast and a wonderful time milking the cows which is something I’ve wanted to do my whole life. The room was comfy and spacious.

Host's Reply:
Hello Ross and Beverley, Thank you for your nice review. Glad you were able to experience milking the cows. The weather is lovely here now so it makes farming a little easier for Jim . All the best Brid and Jim Glenraha Farmhouse Mullinavat
