It's odd how cool it is to find 'Craggy Island Parochial House' :D

It's satisfying because there's no trading done on Father Ted out there. There are no signs, so you have to go looking for it yourself. I have to admit finding it was a highlight of our tour down to the South West. I'm afraid I was a bit like Father Dougal when he saw the caravan they'd be staying it : "There is it!!!!"

For those without sat-nav, look on a map for Kilnaboy, kinda NW of Shannon. Kilnaboy is a junction with a church - literally. You head up a minor road for about 5 miles and then you spot the house on the left.

Look over to the right and you'll see the same hill that was in the background when Ted, Dougal and Father Stone were playing crazy golf in a thunderstorm.

Nerd? Me? :D

Been down South this week. I found out that the house is now open for tea and coffee with a selection of organic home made scones and cakes. So I went and the owner Cheryl (and her husband) were very friendly and entertaining. You really need to ring in advance and book so they can expect numbers at times. I rang but couldn't get an answer at the time, so turned up only to find a large group there pre arranged. However Cheryl still welcomed me in, and the coffee, scones and cakes were great and I can highly recommend that you won't be disappointed. Cheryl just sat me at the table and said eat what you like. For 8 Euros it was great Craic. I'll put up some photos for info shortly.

Does Sheryl say, "Ah.... go on, go on, go on..." when she tops up your cop of tea?

Lol. Her daughter (now 17) starred in one of the episodes as 'the baby left at the front door'!

The interior rooms were fictionally recreated in the studio and the layout was nothing like the real inside as you can see here.
