'Homey' is not perhaps the first word that springs to mind ... ;-)

There was a lot of waring going on in Ireland at the time, The English decided to visit and overstayed their welcome about 800 years, so the gentry had to fortify all of their homes, poor dears.
But a few throw rugs, some occasional furniture and a wide screen tv the places would look ok. :-)
