Luxury House near Lismore Heritage Town

A completely restored Tudor building in a peaceful location near Glencairn Abbey.

Built in 1905 the Post Office was run by the Lehane/Coughlan Family until it closed in 1994. The property has been completely restored keeping all the original unique features of the Tudor architecture intact while adding all the comforts and conveniences of modern living. 

The Old Post Office is a 5 minute drive to the heritage and tourist town of Lismore, Tallow and Ballyduff villiage famous for its salmon fishing in the River Blackwater. It is also close to Youghal, Fermoy and Dungarvan.

The countryside around Glencairn is absolutely gorgeous.   The heritage town of Lismore is definitely worth a trip. There are beautiful castle gardens, art gallery, heritage centre/tourist office and several walks around the town. A drive through the Knockmealdown mountains is a must do. The ideal part of these is that they are only a few kms away from the property. Further afield, all within 1 hours drive away are Cahir Castle, The Rock of Cashel, Mitchelstown Caves, etc. Fota Island Wildlife Park, The Titanic Experience and Spike Island (Cobh) are well worth a visit. This Island was voted the best tourist attraction in Europe for 2018, The Viking Experience in Waterford is a newly opened tourist attraction and has received great reviews to date. (approx 1 hour away). W   Glencairn is also within a half hours drive to different beaches including, Clonea, Whiting Bay, Youghal and the scenic seaside village of Ardmore which has a beautiful cliff walk and a historical Round Tower to view.   If you are interested in cycling there is a fabulous Greenway cycle/walk starting from Dungarvan (approx 20 minutes drive) and heading to Waterford. Bikes can be rented in Dungarvan.   There are brochures in the house outlining tourist attractions in the area which you are most welcome to take a look at.
