Going back to school won't be a hardship with this gorgeous old schoolhouse

There’s no exams here, that’s for sure.

IF THE THOUGHT of ever having to go back to school or sit your Leaving Cert again send shudders of fear down your spine – worry not.

Built in 1921 this was a national school until 1968, after which it was converted into a family home.
