Everything Else...

Entertainment - There are NO televisions in The OC... We do have wifi and also an extensive DVD collection and portable DVD players for guests - snuggle cinema!  

Watching Matches - The local pubs show all of the matches and they are within walking distance to The Old Convent with a foot path the entire way.

Hill Walking - We are also within walking distance to the mountain trails and absolutely beautiful walks, including a gorgeous walk to The Vee and Baylough. We are surrounded by 3 mountain chains, so there are many walks to choose from.

Drinks - We are licenced for wine only. We do not serve beer or spirits. We have a comprehensive wine list for guests to choose from.  The pubs are only a few minutes walk away with a foot path the entire way for a drink before or after dinner. :)


Just let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your stay. You are welcome to ring or email anytime!

See you soon, Dermot & Christine Gannon
