Lorum Old Rectory
Valentine’s special offer at Lorum Old Rectory
Elegant, relaxed and homely, Lorum Old Rectory is a mid-Victorian cut stone granite rectory in County Carlow, built in 1863, and a delightful setting for a romantic Valentine’s weekend.
Set in the rich Barrow River valley at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains, the area around Lorum Old Rectory is renowned for its beautiful scenery, a picturesque backdrop to a Valentine’s break.
Lorum Old Rectory itself has a well-deserved reputation for delicious food, as owner Bobbie Smith, a member of Euro-Toques, the European Community of Chefs and Cooks, creates imaginative home cooking incorporating mainly local and organically grown produce.
The sound of the 18th century grandfather clock welcomes guests with its comforting chime, and the glow of fresh flowers is reflected in the mirrors, added to the aroma of turf and wood fires to create an instant sense of welcome. Beautifully furnished and very comfortable bedrooms have lovely views over the gardens and surrounding countryside and guests have dinner at a handsome long mahogany table, where wonderful breakfasts are also served.
An ideal base for exploring the lush south-east of the country, and a relaxed and cosy venue for an enjoyable Valentine’s stay, Lorum Old Rectory is offering 10% discount on two night’s accommodation with dinner on one evening for Valentine’s weekend, see hiddenireland.com
