The most striking feature as you approach Inch House is a pair of extravagant tripartite mullion windows either side of the entrance, that stretch almost to the ground, and give an inkling of the scale of the interiors.

Prussian blue William Morris wallpaper is the backdrop to antique crimson camel-back sofas, wingback chairs, an antique piano, and a classical marble fireplace.

So many of the original features throughout this home have been conscientiously preserved; the double return oak staircase is original, as is the wonderful lozenge parquet flooring, and stained glass window.

Out & About

 

Tipperary is a treasure trove for hillwalking, historical sites, golf, fishing, hunting and equestrian pursuits.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

Thurles is the nearest large town just 5 minutes away with a variety of supermarkets, restaurants and shops. It is also the birthplace of the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association), founded in 1884 in Hayes’ Hotel in the centre of the town. The local Semple Stadium is the second largest GAA sports arena in Ireland after Croke Park in Dublin.

Window tax was the property tax of the mid 18th century, and was linked to the number of windows in a home. Some of the original windows in Inch House were either blocked up or amalgamated into larger ones, such as can be seen at the front, to reduce the annual rates bill.

Inch translates as island, and the original local inhabitants occupied a raised Anglo-Norman fortress surrounded by lowlands which are frequently flooded to this day.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7
The unique hill top cluster of medieval monastic ruins at the Rock of Cashel, half an hour’s drive away, is a popular tourist destination and worthy of a visit.

Tipperary is home to Coolmore Stud, the largest thoroughbred horse breeding operation in the world. It is currently owned by the Magnier family, and has been associated with a long sequence of top-class stallions since the mid 1800s.

There is a pleasant loop walk with rewarding views around Devil’s Bit Mountain, 20 minutes north of the house. You have to take a short spur should you wish to visit the summit. Possibly more correctly called Devil’s Bite as a large chunk appears to be missing from certain angles.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Hunting with hounds is an ever popular tradition in Ireland that goes back to ancient times and features strongly in Celtic literature and legend. The season runs from late October to early March and packages for you or your group, including transportation, horse hire and visitors cap, can be arranged with one of the local hunts, on request.
