Fiddlers Retreat is based in Theresa’s family home in the heart of Loughmore Village, Templemore, Co. Tipperary. Her family have lived in the village for generations and she is delighted to be able welcome guests into her home, in a farming community that is steeped in history and noted as a parish of great sports people and talented musicians.
The village itself is particularly picturesque. The ancient ruins of Loughmore Castle and the old stone mill sit on the banks of the River Suir which rises a few miles away on the Devil’s Bit mountain. The Loughmore Abbey and graveyard with its beautiful gravestone crosses are nestled in the centre of the village which also has the original water pump house that the villagers would have congregated in bygone times. The village primary school is buzzing with the sound of children, the parish hall and local pub are a hive of activity every evenings. Loughmore is now home to new and old families, a more beautiful and tranquil country setting is hard to find.
