House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow parties.
We are ideally located in the heart of the Irish Midlands with the towns of Portlaoise and Athy, Stradbally, Carlow, Kildare about 20 minutes drive and Kilkenny and Dublin approximately 40 minutes. Also right across the road is Ballintubbert House, which is a popular wedding venue during the high season.

The space
Remember that we are undergoing renovations in the house, so, while some decor etc through the house is not complete, the rooms are clean and cosy.
The rooms are on the first floor of the house and the bathroom is on the ground floor so this may not suit all guests.
We are a dog friendly home, with our dog Chance sharing the home and waiting to welcome you also. We appreciate that this may not be to some peoples taste however she is part of the home so we may not be the right place for you.
Tea/Coffee and a smoking area available.
We look forward to welcoming you.

Other things to note
Light renovations are ongoing. We are also a doggie friendly house with our Norwegian Elkhound living in the property.

Welcome to The Auld Shop House. This is a period building which we are slowly and lovingly restoring and renovating to a high standard. We cannot promise you the luxury of 5 Star hotel trimmings, but we can offer you a warm welcome, a warm and clean bed and room and bathroom and all that goes along with being welcomed into our home. Please note that the shared bathroom is on the ground floor so may not be suitable for some guests. We are a doggie friendly house and our Norwegian Elkhond, Chance shares the home. She too will extend the warmest of greetings, but if a little dog hair is not your thing then we are not the place for you. The room is basic double with comfortable bedding and view of surrounding countryside. TV room/ smoking room/ tea & coffee room available. Again, please be aware that we are doing light renovations, eg painting etc. We are a married gay couple, together now 15 years. We love living in the countryside. There is nothing nicer than a few glasses of wine in the garden on a summers evening or by the fire on a winters evening
