  Father Ted's house - recognise it ?
by sourbugger

Sourbugger is a great fan of the TV comedy series 'Father Ted'. If you have never seen it before then please browse my other tip in this section.

The parochial house, which is central to the series can be found (eventually) in a remote part of County Clare. The house is now a private house, so all you can do is grab a quick photograph and just imagine Mrs Doyle on the roof, and Bishop Brennan spinning like a top on the water hydrant just inside the gate.

You can find the place on a tiny road between Boston and Kilnaboy. Your best bet is probably to ask for directions in the Post office in Boston.
