    • “I had a Marlene Dietrich moment and wanted to “be on my own” for a few days. Stayed at Rose Cottage and found it excellent. The cottage is situated among very beautiful countryside. It was spotless clean and very modern. It had everything I needed for my stay. The owners were most welcoming and full of information on the area. I had my beloved dog with me and did some breath taking walks. There is a lake on the property which is just charming, takes about 20 minutes to walk around. I found is so peaceful and definitely recharged my batteries. I did not feel nervous being on my own as the cottage is situated up a long drive and also behind secured gates. If you are looking for some real peace, this is the place. Although great for families also as it’s a working farm with lots of animals and again secure. I will definitely be back.”

    • “Perfect Getaway”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Less than 3 hours south of Belfast set in stunning countryside close to both Gorey and Arklow. Cottage is beautifully finished and very comfortable. Hosts David and Liz are great very helpful but also give you privacy. Our 2 dogs were made very welcome too. The 2 bedroom cottage next door is also finished to an excellent standard. We were blessed with beautiful weather and relaxed in the loungers looking out over the forest. Already planning to go ack next year.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for a long weekend in Feb 2014, we're a couple. The cottage is beautiful and well presented. My only complaint is how close it is to the main house. We wouldn't have chosen it if we'd realised how close it was to the main house and that it was adjoining another cottage for let. The space at the back is shared with the other cottage and the front leads straight onto the driveway of the main house. No-one bothered us but we were very conscious of our proximity to the owners. In saying that the farm was lovely and we woke up to peacocks on our windows which was a lovely novelty. I think it would suit a family with children who would be more interested in the farm”

    • “Rose Cottage was the perfect getaway, The owners have an excellent property. If you want somewhere that you can relax, totally chill out and still have lots to do without having to think too hard this is the place to stay.”

    Mr Diggle, Carrickfergus, August 2015

    • “We had a fantastic stay in Rose Cottage. It is in a truly idyllic spot and was made even more special by the owners' hospitality. By staying in Rose Cottage you get a true Irish farm experience. The cottage itself is very cosy and warm with a lovely wood burning stove in the middle of the living room. It is on a hill so the views are amazing! There are lots of places for long walks and it was easy to get around.”

    Mr Tierney, Dalkey, August 2015

    • “5 Stars - I knew by the photos and other reviews that the place was amazing and it was that and better. Such beautiful accommodation and the area is heaven. There was loads to do in the surrounding areas and beaches close by. Couldn't recommend the place highly enough and will definitely be booking it again next year.”

    Mr Ryan, Co. Clare, August 2015

    Mrs Cairns, Bangor, July 2015

    Mrs Sturgeon, Armagh, July 2015

    • “The cottage is cosy and warm, and the owners were welcoming. The grounds and lakes were brilliant. Definitely going back there, as long as God does not find out that a little bit of his heaven has fallen out of the sky and landed at Rose Cottage. That is how perfect it was.”

    Mrs Callaghan, Wigan, June 2015

    • “God must not have been looking when a bit of his heaven fell out of the sky and landed at Rose Cottage! The owners are the nicest people you could wish to meet. The Cottage was perfect, the grounds were perfect with the two lakes. It was so peaceful there. We will return next year!”

    Mrs Callaghan, Wigan, June 2015
