“A fantastic hidden gem.” Lorum is a real hidden gem. It is quality accommodation, fine food and with a very hospitable, friendly family looking after everyone. This is a superb bolt hole in beautiful surroundings. The Old Rectory is maintained with real quality detail and lots of personal touches. The food is worth the trip on its own. Dinner is extra but well worth a try. A splendid 5 course meal awaits. Breakfast has plenty of variety and is cooked fresh. Simply gorgeous. The rooms are all in keeping with the house and finished with great attention to detail. The welcome is fulsome and warm and Bobbie is a wonderful friendly, warm hostess.

“Relaxation at its best” What a wonderful break we had at this beautiful country home. Greeted by Bobbie, offered coffee and cake and settled into our elegant and very comfortable bedroom with views over the lovely garden. Delicious full irish breakfast along with fresh fruits and yogurt were enjoyed and a four course home cooked gourmet dinner was well worth pre booking. Well worth spending time relaxing here after a day exploring County Carlow.

“Couldn't do enough for us!” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile I stayed here along with my bridal party and parents the night before my wedding last month. What a beautiful place! The rooms are huge and all so clean with really comfortable beds. Bobbie and her daughter couldn't have done enough for us. There were vegan friendly foods for one of the girls for breakfast the following morning. I had only mentioned it briefly to Bobbies the previous week and to have them there for her the next morning was just wonderful. I honestly can't recommend this place enough. I'll be back again for sure only this time with my husband! Thank you again, Bobbie!
