    “Butterfly house was the perfect space for bringing together our two families of 4 adults, 5 children ( aged 7-13) and one dog for a relaxing five days at the end of October.”

    The huge rooms, with their collection of quirky furnishings, invite you to explore, play and rest in a homely atmosphere. The sun pours into the large open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room demanding that you curl up in the corner window with a book or sit at the kitchen island with a cup of tea and chat.

    The huge rooms, with their collection of quirky furnishings, invite you to explore, play and rest in a homely atmosphere. The sun pours into the large open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room demanding that you curl up in the corner window with a book or sit at the kitchen island with a cup of tea and chat. From the generous windows you can keep a close eye on the kids bouncing on the in-ground trampoline or playing hide and seek in the surrounding fields. Off the kitchen is a large deck, that in the warmer weather would entice you to take your rest outdoors. The house is cradled behind by an evergreen forest where we went for daily adventures, including the spotting of wild deer, exciting for both adults and children! In the evening we gathered round the multi fuel stove, with plenty of seating for all. Nearby there is a good small supermarket in Cappoquin, beautiful woodland historic walks around Lismore or a larger collection of shops/ cinema in Dungarvan, which is also the start of the Waterford Greenway and close enough to drive to the lovely Clonea Beach. We never made it that far! The kids were so busy playing outdoors or in the family room equipped with pool table, foozeball and air hockey that they never even asked for an electronic device. When they had exhausted themselves they went for respite to the small sensory room that the owner Siobhan has set up with soft coloured lighting, bean bag and gym ball, where they chilled out or read a book. Butterfly House was the perfect escape for our two families to relax, have fun and enjoy spending time together. Siobhan and her two gorgeous children were there to assist if we needed and our kids loved having more company to explore the outdoors with. A great place to reconnect with nature and extended family or friends.
