    • “A wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks.”

    • “My wife and I spent Christmas & the New Year here at Rosemount Coach House, and had 2 lovely relaxing weeks as guests of Trevor and Caroline. At the end of our stay, we were so laid back we were almost horizontal. There was some atrocious winter weather, but usually we were out and about every couple of days or so, and we visited Carlow, Bunclody, Gorey, Courtown, Ferns, Wexford, and of course Enniscorthy. Caroline & Trevor's hospitality and welcome were just first class, and the Christmas tree and card, and the welcome pack were lovely thoughtful touches. The house itself was perfectly decorated - everything in the kitchen that was needed; 2 tastefully furnished bedrooms; 2 very comfortable sofas in the living room, along with the TV with dozens of channels; and not forgetting the wood/coal burning stove which was an absolute delight with a roaring fire on those dark rainy nights. As I said, Caroline and Trevor were wonderful hosts, and I thoroughly enjoyed the craic with Trevor each time I bumped into him. A highly recommended holiday home with our sincerest thanks, and we certainly hope to be back for another visit.”

    • “The Coach House was a home from home! Everything was available to make the stay really comfortable. The property was ideally located to see a wide variety of activities.”

    Mrs Allison, Evesham, August 2015

    • “The Coach House stands in lovely grounds in a beautiful, rural setting. The delightful owner made us feel very welcome from the off. Our entire stay was extremely comfortable and we felt very much at home. Even our wee one settled in very well and roomed in with us in the cot provided. This cottage is a perfect base for a couple or small family looking to relax, get away from it all and explore the sunny south east. We'd highly recommend Rosemount Coach House and would definitely stay again!”
