Imagine this. The piece and quiet of the Tipperary countryside. An old convent house, thoughtfully converted to luxury accommodation. A pair of owners dedicated to providing a hideaway experience. The Old Convent in Co.Tipperary combines all these factors in a stunning setting. Diarmuid and Christine Gannon are a man and wife team who have brought romance to Tipperary. Their Good Food Ireland Culinary Accommodation and fine dining restaurant provide the perfect backdrop for a weekend a deux. Country walks outdoors. No tv. Glorious bedrooms with period furnishings. A tuck shop on the landing where you can pick up a DVD to watch in your room, a little edible goodie, or even a toothbrush if you forgot yours. The devil is in the detail here and the Gannons have the details spot on. Diarmuid’s cooking skills are showcased in a fabulous restaurant set in the old convent chapel. Eight courses of bliss, lapped up by anyone religious about good food. This summer – all this comes at a very affordable price. A Thursday and Friday Hideaway deal for two nights bed and breakfast and Irish artisan tasting dinner comes in at €175.00 per person sharing. Sunday Night Hideaway includes the wonderful hospitality here for one night, with dinner thrown in, at €125.00 per person sharing. You don’t really need a better excuse to have a bit of romance in your life.
