    • “Visit to Ireland.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We visited Ireland in March 2014 & stayed at the Granary for 2 weeks. Could not have picked a better a place to stay. The owner Willie McDonnell was a real nice man, very helpful & courteous. Although you are on a working farm, this did not spoil our vacation in any way at all, if fact is was nice to see all the new lambs running around to fields which surround the cottage. The cottage is nicely located within an easy drive of all the area has to offer, which is a lot . We liked it so much in Ireland that we are moving there soon. Barrie & Maureen Pook.”

    • “We stayed in The Granary for one week in June 2011 - welcomed by the nicest man ever Willie. He made us feel very welcome and talked us through everything we might need to know about the house and the neighbouring area. We had our 3 year old Grandson with us and he loved it and Rosie THE DONKEY being the favourite with him - such a lovely donkey. - he also loved seeing the calfs,cows and sheep. We travelled all over the South of Ireland during our week and cant say enough about how friendly everyone we found everyone. Cant wait to get back to visit sometime in the future. Doing our best to get back later this year. Also looking at bringing some people I work with down for a short break . Thank-you to Willie.”

    • “The cottage was so quiet and peaceful even though this is a working farm. From being woken up by the local wildlife to going to sleep listening to the farm animals, it was total heaven. Willy the owner is such a nice and helpful person in fact all of the people we met where really nice and helpful, they where always prepared to stop and have a chat or if you wanted they would always be available in the background leaving you to your own devices.”

    Mr Barwick, Dover, May 2015

    • “The welcome and helpfulness of the owner was spot on, he gave us excellent info on The Granary. He was also very helpful on the local area and beyond. It was brilliant to see the working farm and have encouragement to go into the fields and see the animals. A brilliant place to chill out and spend time away!”
