Sexton’s Lodge - Self-catering house in Co. Offaly
Oxmantown Mall, Birr, Co. Offaly
Small is beautiful at Sexton's Lodge – a gorgeous bolthole popular with Dubliners who like to escape in style. It stands on a glorious tree-lined avenue, the smartest road in town, with Birr's quirky theatre 50 paces from the front door. Not that you will necessarily get that far – this is a gorgeous house and you may choose to hole up for a day or two. Inside, find a fabulous kitchen/diner – the hub of the house – all sparkling granite and fancy appliances. Double doors lead through to a lovely sitting room, where you can lounge about on enormous sofas in front of the fire; doors open onto a pretty walled garden in summer, a perfect spot for breakfast or a sundowner. Upstairs, three bedrooms are just the ticket: warm and cosy, neutral colours, comfy beds, crisp white linen. One is big with a vast bed and its own power shower; the other two (one good for children) are smaller, but equally well designed; they share a good bathroom. Pull yourself away to discover the local country; the river Shannon, the Slieve Bloom mountains and the unmissable monastery at Clonmacnoise are all close. A great escape.
