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 - now that's a mouthful. 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 with a group of fun people. If you have ever been to the famous 'Dick's Last Resort' and liked it; well we're your place!
No snootiness here at all, just f-u-u-u-n people. Only a continuous injection of humor and laughter (sometimes off-color, but never outrageous) which removes the stress of society while allowing you to relax and enjoy the pleasures of the mind and body alike. Imagine leprechauns, unicorns and Celtic fairies in a land of enchantment, the beauty of nature mixed with Irish Charm. Our chief leprechaun, a wizard of sorts, will keep you laughing as long as you will listen. Of course, there's also plenty of private time (we understand why you have come here...hehehe) for you and your sweetie.
We designed this eclectic and green-friendly (environmentally) place with privacy and romance and intacmacy in mind. We're a silver-level eco-friend winner on TripAdvisor. Equally, we envisioned a special place for sensual singles to get away and get acquainted and create their own fantastic memories. Our essence is designed to make your time here uniquely yours, totally private while etching memories that will last a lifetime.
We are a working ranch - alpacas, llamas, ducks, geese, chickens, dogs, frogs, turtles, fish, hell - you name we probably have it (even unicorns...after the consumption of enough Irish Whiskey). But none of the barnyard smells. If you're looking for pristine, manicured lawn kind of place, look elsewhere. We're just a good time place where you can hang it out and experience your own Green Acres (minus Eddie Arnold and Ava). We have an Irish Pub and beer garden—bring your own. 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 are some ideas of things to do here:
See the "Area" tab for lots more to do.
We also have our own catch-and-release fishing ponds, so bring your own poles. There's even a floating dock for catching a few sun rays, watching a romantic sunset, or gazing at the stars or to watch the stars with a glass of your wine.
Now, where in the hell can you find ALL THIS in one of those stuffy B&Bs?
Lose the stress, reconnect, laugh at our corny Irish jokes as bad as they may be; 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. Be sure to pack light, it may be a warm trip (LOL...a bit of Irish humor). WARNING: hypocrites, judgmental types, far-left, far-right crazy people, up-tight outta sight, frowny faces, blue-spoon, silver-stocking fru-fru types run away, quickly, please. Now that we've cleared those folks out...the fun people are left. Par-ty, par-ty. Or private party, if you'd rather.
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 a barrel of laughs!
Romantic Cottages with rockers, couches, loungers and soft, cushy chairs on the porches...hmmm...sounds inviting already. 'Tiny Houses' some might say; a pinch of Ole Ireland, right here in the Lone Star State. And damn good mattresses to go with it.
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.
We have been awarded Trip Advisor's 2017 Certificate of Excellence - the 5th year in a row we've received this. And a 3-time Best of Denton winner! But what's most important is to make sure you have a fine time.
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.
