Old Irish Bed & Breakfast

THANK YOU TO OUR GUESTS FOR THE HUNDREDS OF 5 ***** REVIEWS, sure the hell wasn't because of the good looks of the Innkeeper, the Chief Leprechaun in Charge!

The Old Irish Bed and Breakfast - Wedding & Events Center @ Patrick's Pastures Alpaca Ranch in Denton, Texas. We are different and not like the same old stuffy high-tea B&Bs with rooms full of antiques, (yeah we have a few, hell, the Innkeepers are antiques). We are more like being in an Irish Pub on St. Paddy's day.

catching catfishNo high brow here, in fact, we prefer people who are semi-crazy and like to laugh and have fun. 

We designed this place with the idea of privacy and romance for intimate couples to get away and reacquaint themselves and create fantastic memories. Our goal is to make you laugh, smile and chill out while providing plenty of time for the two of you to enjoy those special private times.

We have an Irish Pub and beer garden but we do not charge for any alcoholic beverages and you may bring your own (so long as the Chief Leprechaun can get a nip or two, LOL). Along with the laughter and good times, we provide a few amenities and Irish luck (who knows you may get lucky!). When you're not getting lucky, here's some ideas of things to do here:

  • go to the Denton Square and visit the various restuarants, bars, live theater, ghost tours and music venues
  • For those wanting a little more privacy there's over 10 miles of nature trails right out our back door along the banks of the Trinity River. 
  • If you like auto racing, Texas Motor Speedway is about 20 minutes away
  • Gambling is about 30 minutes north at WinStar Casino - which also features Vegas-style entertainment
  • Horseback riding is available 15 minutes away in "Texas Horse Country"
  • Watersports - boating, skiing, etc - are available at any of 3 lakes ranging in distance from 3 to 30 miles away.
  • Like college sports? University of North Texas is 15 minutes away, TCU and SMU are 30 miles away.
  • How about pro sports? The world-renowned Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, pro soccer and hockey are all within about 40 minutes
  • Is history your bag? How about the old west at the Ft. Worth Stockyards, the George W Bush library, the 6th Floor Museum (at the site of the assassination of JFK) are all an easy drive away.
See the "Area" tab for lots more to do.

We also have trails and catch-and-release fishing here on site as well all types of domestic livestock. There's a floating dock for romantic sunsets or to watch the stars with a glass of wine or cocktail, horse shoes available, multiple porches and patios to sit or rock on, Plus, we are a working alpaca/llama ranch and habitat!
Now, where in the hell can you find that in one of those stuffy B&Bs? Lose the stress, reconnect, laugh at our Irish jokes as bad as they are; a bit tarnished but never filthy, typical Irish humor to make you laugh. If you can't laugh, we're not the place for you. Sourpusses can go elsewhere; we'll even provide directions.

Our guest reviews across over a dozen rating sites tell the story! We be a wee bit fancy and a whole lot of fun and laughs!


Suggestion: uptight, stuffy, nasty, snobbish, hypocritical and judgemental types...The Holiday Inn or Motel 6 are great places to stay! LOL, just not here. If spirited language and teasing should bother you, there are numerous church camps in the area. Fragile, shy or inhibited personalities? This could be more than you could handle. We welcome saints and sinners (sinners have more fun). We don't care if you're liberal, conservative, married, single, saint or sinner as long as you have a good time - laugh, smile and create memories.

Romantic Cottages with rockers on the porches, 'Tiny Houses' some might say; a pinch of Ole Ireland, right here in the Lone Star State. And damn good mattresses.

We are a working ranch too...a place for an 'ag experience' minus the barnyard smells....alpacas, llamas, ducks, geese, friendly dogs and over 20 species of birds...even baby squirrels. BTW - We are proud to say, "Our animals...their Sh_t don't stink!" We are perfectly imperfect. In other words, what you see is what you get - and you'll have a hell of a good time getting it.

If you're puckered up, snarly, snobbish, or prickly we could tell you where to go but you've probably already figured out where we would send you...it's about 1,000 miles north and called Hell, Michigan. It's even been known to freeze over many times each year.

By the way, did we mention that we have GREAT mattresses? Yipee Ki Aye Yay. We don't allow spurs in the bed.

We're proud to be members of the Arbor Day Foundation! We are planting over 100 trees this year alone!

Our cottages are decorated with re-purposed period furnishings, even the cottages themselves are built from eco-friendly materials. Our breakfasts are amazing; the animals are special and very friendly, and so very cute. The Innkeepers and staff are crazy and do their best to make you smile and laugh and if you don't they're offended...please don't irritate the unicorn-riding leprechauns...they have a very bad attitude, we don't need yours.

Ecology and the environment are important to us, after all they are GREEN and so are we.. Recently, we were named by Trip Adviser TM as one of their Silver Level Green Properties.  Except for our expensive and acclaimed mattresses, linens and towels, almost everything has been recycled.  Every one of our cottages have been named to the 'Green Friendly' list. We are so green, our chickens and geese even poop green and produce green eggs, but no ham!

Many have stayed at our little corner of the world and made memories (even a few babies) and so can you (if you are brave enough)!  We do our best to make every guest a new friend. If you want total privacy, so be it, and we will respect your wishes and just not laugh with you...we can take a hint!  

We aren't the fanciest ***** STAR venue. but we are the most fun ***** STAR reviewed place you'll ever want to stay at!

Open 365 days out of the year. We love weekday guests; whether they be business travelers, UNT / TWU / FEMA or any government workers (we are on the authorized list - $84/night + tax) or parents visiting students, international holiday travelers or retired folks! Same fun, but with Continental+ breakfast - Sunday thru Wed - $139/night, $99 without breakfast, pond-side rooms only; we prefer 2 night stays...Irish jokes are free.
