Guest Reviews


    • “Absolutely perfect!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Our stay at New Thatch Farm cottage was the highlight of our three week holiday in Ireland. The location worked well for exploring the sites of Western Ireland and the cottage provided a comfortable and welcoming place to return each evening. It is nestled in a quiet country setting with all the splendour of the area right on the doorstop. The cottage itself is well appointed and has been carefully and artfully restored to provide all the modern amenities while maintaining its original character. The owner was attentive and welcoming without being intrusive and offered many helpful hints about the area. The beds were comfortable, the cottage scrupulously clean and the presentation, from linens and towels to the lovely bouquet of wild flowers and plate of scones that greeted us on arrival, resonant of a 5 star getaway. The woodstove was a bonus we put to good use each evening as we enjoyed dinner and late night conversation in the cozy sitting room.”

    • “We had a wonderful time at New Thatch Farm, the owner was a great host. We would recommend New Thatch Farm to anyone who would like a real Irish country experience. We would love to come back some time in the near future. The owner made us feel like we where part of her family.”

    Mrs Brooks, Lavington, August 2015

    • “Our stay at this property was more pleasurable than we could ever have expected. When we arrived the owner was there to greet us with a smile and made us feel completely at home. Her house is beautifully kept and well presented. She made us even more welcome with a cake that she had baked. Her attention to detail was clearly visible upon entering the bedrooms where fluffy white towels were all tied up with a white ribbon. Her two cats were delightful - Buttons, the little black young female kept us amused with her antics. Our stay in the country was truly good for our souls. The owner was an awesome host.”

    • “New Thatch Cottage was a delightful change from the hotels we stayed at during our vacation. The décor is charming and the owner was a perfect host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Am not sure what the Tourist Board Star Grade is but the property is beautiful, and your pictures do not do justice to the actual view.”

    Ms Milligan, Tarrant, June 2014

    • “Congratulations and many thanks to the owner who has restored this thatched cottage so lovingly and made it a truly beautiful and homely place to holiday. We were welcomed to the cottage in the middle of the night with candles & fire lit, a tray of cupcakes and everything we would need & more. She explained the use of the essentials in the cottage & gave us advise on things to do around the area. The cottage is situated in a beautiful rural part of county Limerick yet close to amenities. It is furnished to the highest standard and very clean yet cosy. We enjoyed walks around the area and relaxing around the cottage with the animals. We would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.”

About the location


Kilmallock 8 miles; Tipperary 12 miles; Limerick 22 miles.

The friendly village of Knocklong is located in the south east of County Limerick, close to the Limerick/Tipperary border, in the midlands of Ireland. The railway station is famed for the rescue of Sean Hogan, which was one of the first events of the War of Independence in 1919. The village also holds the ruins of a 16th century castle and O’Turley Tower on Knocklong Hill. Located on the main Limerick-Mitchelstown-Cork road, Knocklong makes a great touring base with plenty to see and do within easy reach. The walking trails and historical sites around the beautiful Lough Gur is a must do in the area for outdoor enthusiasts, and Mitchelstown Caves, Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel are also within easy driving distance and worth a visit.
