Self-catering house to the rear of an old world pub and Award Winning Restaurant
About Una Weir
The house is in the family since sometime in the 1800's, and until about 60 years ago it was a bakery for the local townspeople. The picture is us, the family with Johnny Depp, he came for lunch in November 2013. This was major excitement for us and the national media also. He said he'll be back because he thoroughly enjoyed his lunch and the relaxed atmosphere. When you sample a little of our life and ways you will understand the attraction to our village and our house.
Una Weir purchased this House in 1850
Why Una Weir chose Multyfarnham
Originally the house was a bakery but when we came to live here, the house was a store for the beers for the bar. It took three refurbishments to make it what it is today. It is cosy, yet spacious, and decorated in a contemporary style but has some of the features of the old building. The view out the back window is the yard and gardens. There are old stone barns with red painted doors.
What makes this House unique
The house is at the back of the restaurant and bar, so you don't have to leave the property to get to bed after your dinner or spending time with the locals in the bar. The atmosphere in the bar is unpredictable in the sense that it might be quiet with just the turf fire to keep you company or there could be stories from one of the locals to entertain you. On Friday night (most weeks) there is music in the bar, where you are welcome to join in if you wish. It is a mix of sing-a-long, country, blues, pop and some Irish folk songs also.

Excellent Accommodation and Location!
This was our first trip to Ireland, and it was fantastic! We were so happy with our accommodations in the beautiful village of Multyfarnham in the Midlands. It gave us a perfect vantage point for exploring! Pat and Una Weir, our hosts, and owners of Weir’s Pub and Restaurant , were very welcoming and helpful, and by the end of our stay, became good friends! Their restaurant is lovely and has excellent food and attentive staff, and the pub is just the experience you imagine when planning a trip to the countryside of Ireland, full of charming folks and good beer! This was a once in a lifetime experience, and we hope to return !
A short adventure
If you are looking for a place to stay where you feel like you staying at an old family friends home, this is your place. When we arrived we where greated by one of the bar employees, she welcomed us with a kind smile and a warm hello. The night we arrived unfortunately the power was out and Una and Pat where out of town. The patrons of the bar gave us suggestions and directions for a place to get supper while we waited for the power to return. Everyone we encountered on our first night was so kind and welcoming. Even Max the dog greeted us with an exciting wag of his tail as if he missed us.....hahaha.
We met Pat and Una on our second night, they too welcomed us as if we were old friends. They had fantastic suggestions for great places to see while we stayed with them.
We very much enjoyed our time in Multyfarnhamand felt so welcomed. Even if you do not stay with them, I highly recommend taking time to enjoy a meal at the Weirs Pub and Restaurant, it was the best meal we had on our trip to Ireland.
Just back from another great holiday at Weir's in multyfarnham.
Fantastic time and great nights in the pub meeting everyone. Hope to get back next year
A Single Lady in Multyfarnham
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Weir's cottage in Multyfarnham. The cottage was a perfect home away from home for me! In fact that's how I thought of it!
The cottage was clean, cozy and I wanted for nothing. Max the dog was such a warm welcome at the door in the morning that you couldn't help but smile . The owners Una and Pat were so friendly, helpful and approachable..it felt like we had known each other forever!
The restaurant food was a gastornomical delight!! Amazing!!! Staff and locals were so friendly. Atmosphere, staff and locals ,Friday night music...who ould ask for more!
Una was a wealth of tourist information and I was kept busy with one bit or another. If Una doesn't know, she will know someone who does.
I hate to give a good review because I would like to keep this place my own personal secret but that would be so unfair to others who would miss out on this gem. My next visit will be longer. One week was no where near enough!
Special thanks to Una and Pat for making my 1st trip to Ireland to my last. See you in the spring!
Charming small town retreat
Love the place. this house was perfect for us ( senior couple from California), plenty of space both upstairs and down. Large bed was nice to have, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the proximity to the restaurant and bar. Both Pat and Una were engaging and very helpful in suggestions of things to see and do. Lovely countryside to explore. Loved it...
We loved our stay in Multyfarnham
What a wonderful place to stay! Una's place was cozy like home, and how convenient to be attached to the best restaurant in the area. The food at Weir's is the best we've had in Ireland by far. We love Multyfarnham and could move there in a minute. Thank you to Ursula and all the wonderful girls who took such good care of us during our stay. Everything was perfect.
