    My husband and I fell in love with Rose Cottage from first sight until the moment we left. It's cosy, welcoming, so well appointed and charming. Sympathetically restored by its owners, it is comfortable in every way, and very well equipped with everything a guest can desire. Its owners who live next door are equally delightful, giving us a first-class welcome and every help and assistance we could possibly have needed. By the same token, they are equally happy to leave you in peace to get on with your holiday. The cottage is located in a quiet, country hamlet not far from the seaside town of Youghal and very near the absolutely beautiful Blackwater river. We spent a very happy week here and wished it could have lasted a whole lot longer. Because the main bedroom and bathroom, as well as the living accommodation is on the ground floor, this cottage would be ideal for anyone who needs to be on one level, but there is an upstairs bedroom to accommodate several other people. It might be a little out of the way for anyone without their own transportation, but for anyone who wants a little quiet respite in a lovely location, it can't be bettered. It would make a marvellous retreat for someone who wanted quiet meditation and/or contemplation and country walkers, but equally, if you visit with a car, it's within easy reach of many wonderful Irish locations. It's only two or three miles from Youghal, several well-known supermakets and major routes in all directions. We just loved it and highly recommend it.
