Relaxing Interiors

Lorum Old Rectory offers guests relaxed, Country House style Bed & Breakfast Accommodation where the emphasis is on making guests feel ‘at home’.

The broad, high-ceilinged hallway at Lorum is both elegant and inviting. In one corner a tall, [18th century] grandfather clock marks time with its comforting chime; the glow of fresh flowers is reflected in the mirror over the hallstand and a sense of warmth and generosity is immediately conveyed to the visitor.

The spacious, pleasingly-proportioned drawing room, where our Bed & Breakfast guests may enjoy afternoon tea, drinks before dinner and coffee afterwards, has large windows that frame magnificent views of Mount Leinster and the western hills. Three large couches – ideal for perusing the many books that the family has collected or continuing a lively dinner conversation – flank the turf or wood fire in the large marble fireplace. The room’s many curios and photographs give a lively sense of the family’s and the area’s past.

The graceful dining room, small “snug” and the family’s study (where Bed & Breakfast guests may watch television) are also off the main hallway.
