Among the vineyards and olive groves in the tranquil Armagh Valley is the award winning retreat, Patly Hill Farm. Delightfully quirky, it has a unique Australian country charm about it, with a combination of timber, corrugated lining, character furniture and Persian rugs. Four air conditioned guest rooms with ensuite bathroom and private balcony overlooking 15 acres of vineyards and olive groves provide a quiet sanctuary for couples in this beautiful region.
The Terrace Gallery at Patly Hill Farm exhibits fine paintings by local artists and a range of glass, ceramic and timber crafts. A selection of jams, chutneys, sauces and dukkah and kalamata olives, along with the multiple award winning Patly Hill Farm Extra Virgin Olive Oil, are all produced on site to old fashioned recipes for maximum taste. Try some Patly Hill Pickled Grapes, it's superb with cheese and crisp white wine.
