Lorum Old Rectory

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Bobby and Rebecca Smith’s sedate and soulful Rectory feels like a place apart, a place out of time, in the nicest possible way. And it’s easy to explain why the house engenders this feeling: mother and daughter have chosen all the elements of the house so carefully, and arranged them so meticulously, that the house has a perfect period feel, it enjoys a feng shui where nothing is discordant or out of place. And Bobby and Rebecca complement this pitch perfect tone poem of good taste with their own quiet, intense hospitality. They cook beautifully, they tend to the house and its guests with warmth and charm, and the result is captivating. Lorum is a beautiful escape, in one of the prettiest, and least spoilt parts of the country. A few days here will recharge your soul.
