The Old Convent

The House

The Old Convent Country House is nestled at the foot of the Knockmealdown Mountains in beautiful County Tipperary – a unique destination for those seeking elegant accommodation, Irish artisan cuisine, refreshing walks in the picturesque countryside and a convenient location to explore local antiquities and natural amenities.

Stroll through the mature gardens and stop for a swing in the hammock, explore the Vee Gap with a scenic mountain drive or hill walk, relax by the fire with a cup of tea or curl up with a DVD or great book from our collection.

Hideaway from it all at The OC!

*The Old Convent is an Adult Only Destination*

Past

The Convent was constructed in 1885 when the Sisters of Mercy were asked to take charge of Clogheen workhouse. It was the same year the sisters also began teaching in the local school.

When the workhouse system was abolished and the Clogheen workhouse closed, the Sisters continued to teach in the local school and work in the present St. Theresa’s hospital located in the only remaining building of the original workhouse complex. In 1991, the Mercy order decided to sell the Convent and build a lovely bungalow adjacent for the resident nuns, where they still reside to this day.

Present

Dermot and Christine Gannon bought the building in 2005 with a vision to create a space where guests could relax and rejuvenate, while enjoying great food and the beautiful Tipperary countryside.

The Old Convent was born in July of 2006. The daily changing tasting menu was key to fulfilling their goal of using the freshest Irish artisan ingredients, served in the beautiful Chapel Dining Room.

Dinner 

Dermot’s daily changing 8 Course Irish Artisan Tasting Menu is served in The Chapel Dining Room at 8 pm. There is just one seating for dinner, so the table is yours to enjoy for the entire evening.
