This property is in Clonegal, Carlow. It is most infamous for the temple to Isis in the basement. It is a lovely place to visit and has a charming tea room.

However, Clonegal is also worth a visit because it is a charming place and is also home to the Shar Roe restaurant which is exceptional: small, personal and serving absolutely delicious food. I have been twice and the meal was enhanced by the real old fashioned and welcoming pub next door!
