Guest Reviews


    • “We stayed at this traditional Irish cottage for 4 nights and wished it were longer. It was cosy, warm and inviting the moment we stepped into it! The owner left a fire going in the stove and left scones and home made jam for us. She was very endearing and wanted to ensure we enjoyed our stay, arranging a pub night at a local place for us. This was also great, we had excellent food and music and best of all we were able to see her daughter perform Irish dance and song. This cottage was within fairly short driving distance of many of the natural sites we intended to see, as well as some interesting towns and shopping. It is a great location. I would highly recommend this cottage. It would be great for longer stays as well.”

    • “We really wanted to stay in a traditional Irish cottage and Barley Cove did not disappoint us! It was warm and inviting and the owner was delightful. The town of Scarriff and the area around it had plenty of things to see. I would highly recommend this cottage to others.”
