  • "A beautiful well appointed cottage."

    It is well situated in the central Wexford countryside. It is within the family farm and is adjacent to the main road, however the thickness of the cottage walls prevented any traffic noise. The owners made us very welcome and were most helpful in introducing us to the area and the local people. I would highly recommend it.

  • "The cottage is amazing - probably better equipped than my kitchen at home!"

    Caroline and Trevor could not have done more to make our stay any more enjoyable than it was. From the scones and jam laid our for our arrival, to the ample supply of things for the fire - there was absolutely nothing that we lacked. The cottage is extremely well equipped, very warm and cosy. We had a wonderful week there and hope to return soon.

  • "Shared a lovely week in Rosemount with a friend back in January and we could not have been any happier with the property."

    The place is super cosy but still with almost every convenience we could think of and the kitchen was a delight to cook in. The friendly proprietor, Caroline, was the perfect host in that she was very easy to contact when needed but left us with complete privacy the rest of the time; and arriving late on our first night to find homemade scones on the table and a lit stove was just a lovely touch! We had a special time at Rosemount and it's a place I would highly recommend staying at.

  • "The property was not up-to the usual high standards."

    We never saw owner eve though they said they’d pop Saturday night or Sunday. Upon opening door we were met with large amount of blue bottles and flies, we eventually found fly spray and my husband then spent an hour cleaning them up and the dirt etc o;top of kitchen units was disgusting, he removed 4 old Christmas cards. There were dead flies in main bedroom wardrobe. The settees had large rips in them which was covered in blankets and even the edges separated the wooden floors and tiles was lifted in areas. The heating was not as expected as even when husband put it on to dry clothing the radiator were only slightly warm. The scones that had been left was nice touch tho,

    I'm very sorry to hear this, I did try to drop in to say hi a few times but unfortunately you were out and about each time. It is a pity I didn't see you as I would have apologised and explained about the couch. The damage on the couch happened after one particular week of very hot weather, the sun shining in through the velux window seemed to have caused the leather to lift off. We ordered a new couch straight away, but were waiting on it to come into stock. New couch is now installed. In regard to the heating, it was set on the summer setting. We change it over to a lower setting during the summer as the house it very well insulated and can get too hot with any heating in the summer. But would have had no issue switching it over to the higher setting. In regard to your mention of blue bottles and sticky surface, the house is thoroughly cleaned after each stay and during changeover on the day of your arrival I don't have any recollection of a vast amount of flies. But I do apologize if you found otherwise. Property Owner

    Really comfortable and welcoming. Home made scones when we arrived we're very welcome after our drive from the airport. Love the location it was just far enough out to appreciate the countryside but close enough to a main road and a small town to not feel isolated. The owner was lovely and really helpful. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arose.

  • "Rosemount Coach House was a wonderful setting for the stay in Southern Ireland."

    You will need a car, but there is off road parking in a safe area. The family are onsite for any issues that arise and the lovely cakes and house tour at the start were a nice touch. It is a working farm, but to be honest it was very light farm traffic. Doris the donkey is on hand and likes a bit of fuss over the gate nearby the house. There is a pub down the road which has a lovely reasonable menu and welcoming vibe, even though the walk is a few hundred meters on a grass verge along side a fairly busy road. Overall the cottage was lovely, spacious enough to live and cosy enough to feel like a home. A log fire is on hand for winter nights, but there is oil heating as well if needed. Tescos is about 15 minute drive in Gorey and is a good size. It is about an hour and half from Dublin. Would suggest to use the Carrickmines Park and Ride tram if going for a day out, takes the stress away from driving in central Dublin! Roads are quiet in the South. We had a Ford Focus which was a good size for the roads. Enjoy!

  • "This was a most pleasant stay - neat, clean and comfortable."

    The owners went the extra mile to make our stay memorable, which started with a welcoming basket of fresh farm eggs, homebaked scones and tea. Wooden logs and household coal was offered to us for the solid fuel stove burner, but I had my own supply which was purchased for my stay at the previous cottage. Not wanting a repeat of my previous bad experience regarding the use of the oil fired central heating, I enquired about the usage and costs thereof, which surprised the owner as this is part of the accommodation package. I have only praise and admiration for the owners of this family run business.
