Inch House, near Thurles in Co. Tipperary is a luxurious Georgian country house, built in 1720, meticulously restored and nestling in the middle of a 250-acre working farm. A winding driveway, planted with crops of wheat, oats and barley, leads to this unique hideaway, famed for its welcome. This magnificent 5-Star rural retreat offers the best of Irish country living.
The family-owned property is entering a new chapter as it is now available for the first time as an exclusive luxury private rental from July 1st, 2018 on a self-catering, weekly or 3 day weekend basis.
The family has developed a 5.5km looped national trail walk on the farm, around the fields of sheep and cattle and surrounding countryside. There is a multitude of walking and cycling routes, horse riding, food trails, fishing and hunting available. There’s an abundance of Norman and Medieval history nearby, including castles, ring forts and abbeys and the famous Rock of Cashel
Accommodation Featuring elegant reception rooms, halls, a library bar and kitchen, groups of up to 14 people can be accommodated for short or longer breaks, weddings, celebrations or corporate events in this beautiful part of Ireland. There’s even a secret chapel!
The six individually styled en-suite bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with antique furniture. The beautifully-appointed rooms overlook the fields of the surrounding farm dotted with sheep and cattle. This 18th-century farmhouse is a perfect base to explore the region. . From the ‘Cream Room’ with its beautiful four poster bed, lace drapes and side garden view, to the large ‘Green Room’ with a half-tester Prince Albert bed and seating area, each bedroom offers a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.
The William Morris style drawing room at this glorious home features an open white marble fireplace and ornate ceilings and is the perfect place to relax. The dining room at the heart of the house offers guests the chance to step back in time and dine by candlelight against a backdrop of luxurious red and gold drapes.
Ireland – and Tipperary in particular - is famous for its food culture and this has been embraced by the Egan family since they took on this house over 30 years ago. The self-catering option is available for groups, but if guests want to enjoy homemade produce and locally grown artisan food, there is the option to enjoy bespoke catering. Whether it’s breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch or dinner, it can be arranged to suit, and this is what the Egan family have excelled in over the years.
Nora Egan is renowned for her Traditional Black Pudding and her ‘Tipperary breakfasts’, and the chefs at Inch House have also worked together to create a range of famous homemade chutneys, dressings and sauces.

Style and agriculture, the perfect marriage.
We arrived in the middle of the night, but they were waiting for us. (We called them to let them know we were trapped in traffic) Friendly, warm reception. The room was perfectly appointed, clean and fresh. The bathtub had a view to die for. I could have stayed for a very long time. Breakfast was delicious and perfect. We will return for more days and to try their dinners.

One of the best experiences I have had of a hotel. Simply the most perfect combination of a dream house, wonderful hosts and staff and excellent food. Unusual, perfectly priced, highly recommended.
The house itself was built in 1720 and there is an atmosphere of Downtown Abbey to it.
The sitting room is where you dream to read a book in while drinking a good beer or enjoying a nice glass of wine. The restaurant is very good and service impeccable.

Highly recommend a visit-a real gem
Inch House is a fabulous house in a fabulous location. When we arrived the smell of food was divine-we were attending a family function locally but would have loved to have stayed for dinner! Definitely intend to return. The bedroom was beautiful-spacious, 4 poster bed, large bright bathroom with a deep bath, lovely touches. Don't know the name of the young girl who checked us in but she was lovely-ironed clothes for us and was beyond helpful. Breakfast next morning was better than I expected - the black pudding is to die for. And the brown bread delicious. This is such a relaxed surroundings, we were in no rush to leave! We have every intention of returning and want to thank Teresa and the gang for such wonderful hospitality, a rarity these days! :)

Inch House is magnificent. ..beautiful setting with its long avenue flanked by acres if corn. Had the pleasure of dining there lately where we were met with the most wonderful, friendly and courteous staff. The owners Nora and John Egan take a bow! You deserve every accolade possible. This stately home is a delight...so carefully renovated. I was gobsmacked by the grandeur..as we're all of the group. Well what can I say about the food...it was divine. It's an experience to dine there. It was prepared with love and served to the highest possible standard. Didn't meet the chef.. he's a genius at his job. After all the GAWKING we were able to reflect and thank The Good Lord for such fine people in the little chapel/church attached to Inch House. Keep up the good work! I'll be back. Thank you Inch House.

We had a wonderful relaxing experience in Inch House. We got delicious freshly-baked scones on arrival. After a wonderful sleep we had a superb breakfast - delicious porridge served with real honeycomb plus full "Tipperary" breakfast cooked to order. Homegrown poached plums among the breakfast fruits. Nora is the perfect hostess. Hope to include dinner on our next visit.
