Lorum is a real hidden gem. It is quality accommodation, fine food and with a very hospitable, friendly family looking after everyone. This is a superb bolt hole in beautiful surroundings. The Old Rectory is maintained with real quality detail and lots of personal touches.

The food is worth the trip on its own. Dinner is extra but well worth a try. A splendid 5 course meal awaits. Breakfast has plenty of variety and is cooked fresh. Simply gorgeous.

The rooms are all in keeping with the house and finished with great attention to detail. The welcome is fulsome and warm and Bobbie is a wonderful friendly, warm hostess.

What a wonderful break we had at this beautiful country home. Greeted by Bobbie, offered coffee and cake and settled into our elegant and very comfortable bedroom with views over the lovely garden. Delicious full irish breakfast along with fresh fruits and yogurt were enjoyed and a four course home cooked gourmet dinner was well worth pre booking.
Well worth spending time relaxing here after a day exploring County Carlow.

Room tip: All looked lovely

Stayed here for 4 nights and did not want to leave, the house, the area, peace and quiet was second to none. The evening meal was superb. Our host Bobbie was just so lovely. I will definitely stay there again. I loved our vast room and 4 poster bed.

We stayed in Lorum Old Rectory in September for a special birthday celebration for a quiet getaway. The host Bobbie was lovely and we enjoyed welcome tea & cake on arrival by a lovely log burning fire. The evening meal was superb and served in the most beautiful dining room again with a lovely fire with just the two of us by candlelight. The home made bread at breakfast time was just perfect too. Bobbies collection of roses are just lovely and on the way home we purchased two pink rose bushes. We will return again for a special treat.

Room tip: The Blue Room was lovely and large with lovely views.

From the welcoming cup of tea to the drinks by the open fire, to the excellent five course dinner in an appropriately gracious setting, to a comfortable room where everything worked, to a huge range of fruit, bread and cooked breakfast, the experience was uninterrupted self indulgence. We will be back to Lorum.
