    “We had a lovely time at the Thatch, ...”
    We had a lovely time at the Thatch, the pictures do not do it justice. The Owners were very helpful and gave us lots of details and information about the area and could not have been more helpful. The cottage is centrally located giving you every opportunity to explore all parts of the south of Ireland. We will definitely be returning .

The accommodation consists of three cosy, but comfortable bedrooms, one of which featuring an impressive four poster bed!

The homely kitchen, complete with a multi-fuel stove, acts as the heart of the house and comes well equipped to cater for all your culinary and dining needs during your stay.

After a long day exploring the sights of Limerick and the neighbouring Tipperary, you can retire to the sitting room and curl up by the fire with a well-deserved glass of wine in hand.

The village of Galbally lies on the Aherlow River and is situated at the western approach to the famous Glen of Aherlow, a valley of jaw dropping scenery and beauty and a paradise for walkers and hikers.

The village is home to a selection of traditional pubs and local shops and is a wonderful base for exploring the region’s attractions, including Darby’s Bed, a majestic passage grave close to the village.
