The Coach House - holiday 'house rental' accommodation, in Ireland, for 4 people.

Ingrid & Wilfred welcome you to 'The Coach-House' holiday rental at 'The Old Rectory' - in the village of Emo, Ireland. The perfect place for 'A Holiday at Home'.

The spacious 'Coach-house', circa 1785, was formerly a working part of The Old Rectory. It has been tastefully restored with a high vaulted ceiling, traditional cut stone finishes and graceful arches looking out on the rolling pastures of Coolbanagher.

Scenically located with private garden and patio areas where children can play safely and, weather permitting, you can barbecue for dinner. Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the peaceful location of The Coach-house, yet be in easy reach of local towns and villages. Perhaps visiting one of the local pubs for a 'traditional night of Irish music' or going to a night club in Portlaoise's '5' star Heritage Hotel. The Dunamaise Theatre, also in Portlaoise. hosts some great entertainers. County Laois is a good centre for sightseeing and touring in Ireland, or perhaps walking, fishing or golfing.
