A warm welcome is guaranteed when you arrive at the historic Lorum Old Rectory Luxury Country House Accommodation, a charming manor dating to 1863, nestling beneath the Blackstairs Mountains, midway between Bagenalstown and Borris. The antique furnishings, open fires and convivial atmosphere guarantees an enjoyable stay. Well-appointed bedrooms offer en-suite facilities, direct dial telephone, tea/coffee making facilities and hand held hairdryers. All bedrooms are extremely spacious and offer beautiful views of the Barrow Valley and Carlow countryside.
Lorum Old Rectory, a historic luxury country house, has a long-standing reputation for serving cuisine of the highest quality. Bobbie Smith, a member of Euro-Toques (the European Community of Cooks) and her family have built an international reputation for delicious home baking that incorporates mainly local and organically grown produce. Evening meal is also available by prior notice.
Family portraits, books, memorabilia, games and the casual yet supremely comfortable way in which the house is furnished gives Lorum Old Rectory its own unique character and encourages total relaxation. Guests can relax in the garden or play croquet where you may be greeted by a peacock in its full regalia. Alternatively retreat to the dining room – whether you are enjoying the views of Mount Leinster and Brandon Hill or warming yourself in front of the open wood or turf fire, this is the room to relax in. Lorum Old Rectory is a non-smoking house.
Close to base there is an excellent 9-hole golf course in Borris, a fully equipped indoor and outdoor riding school and an outdoor swimming pool at Bagenalstown (Summer months). The well known Gowran Park racecourse is within a four mile drive of Lorum Old Rectory.
