  • "A lovely traditional Irish cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    We enjoyed our stay. It would have been nice to have some outside furniture so we could sit out Also the electricity meter needs €1 and €2 coins so make sure you have some when you arrive.

  • "Surprisingly spacious, adequately comfortable, well equipped, genuinely retro and quaint."

    I know I’m fussy about beds, but the mattresses would definitely benefit from a topper! We were there in hot weather, and it did get very warm upstairs suggesting that it isn’t very well insulated and would be expensive to heat in winter. The yard was safe enough for our dog, but it is just a concreted farmyard with no grass. Overall it was good value and a lovely quiet situation close to some good walks.

  • "Probably the worst Sykes cottage we have stayed at!"

    ! arrived on the Saturday as planned only to be told they weren't expecting us until Monday. hence the cottage had not been properly prepared, i.e. it had not been aired and was damp and as the keyholder said they normally heat the cottage through no heating had been arranged

    I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay! I have confirmed with our cleaner that the cottage was ready for your check in. Please give Sykes a call if you would like to discuss this further. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful place with gorgeous original features."

    Nice and quiet with fab views and lovely area to walk. Betty is lovely and helpful. Great onsite amenities. Loads of space. But the cold of the house is unreal. It is never adequately heated. Oil is charged extra to the person staying there. Nobody pays it and so the walls are ice cold there, doors stick, hard to feel warmth there. I lit fire and burnt coal and blocks but you would find it hard to feel the heat from it. Water came out of walls. Smoky smell in the living room. Oil heating and electricity should not be charged extra. It's not cheap to stay here.

    Thank you for your feedback, it is clearly stated that oil and electricity is charged for as per a meter reading.If you had brought to our attention the problem with the condensation we would have happily got this sorted for you. Property Owner

  • "We had a great holiday at Steepes Place."

    Its the kind of authentic old cottage we love but beautifully clean and with everything you would need. Betty & her husband were amazing hosts & even brought down a mattress, from their own home, to put on the sofa bed so that my dad could sleep downstairs ! The bedrooms upstairs were lovely & the beds were so comfortable. It is in a great location for visiting lots of attractions but so peaceful if you just want some quiet time. Would definitely go back in the future. Betty keep up the good work as you are doing a great job.

  • "Kept clean and overall a comfortable stay."

    The one issue is with the bathroom - It's about as far from the bedroom as you can get, not ideal for those nighttime trips! The shower is a disappointing trickle. Kitchen facilities are good with everything you need and in good condition.

The property

A delightful, detached cottage, at the foot of the Ballyhoura Mountains in Glenosheen, 2 miles from Ardpatrick.

Over 400 years old, and steeped in history, this original farm cottage has traditional thick stone walls, a stunning open fireplace, and a cosy, inviting atmosphere, that evokes a real sense of having stepped back in time.

The bedrooms boast original iron bedframes and the cottage provides stunning views of Castle Oliver and the rolling countryside.

Time can be spent enjoying the traditional Irish music of the Ardpatrick village pub or the many local outdoor pursuits including horse riding, fishing, and mountain walking.

An ideal base for any holiday and just a 90-minute drive from Shannon Airport.

About the location


Ardpatrick 2 miles; Kilfnane 4 miles.

Glenosheen, originally built by a colony of Palatine settlers, sits below the Ballyhoura mountains, just 2 miles from the village of Ardpatrick, named after Ireland’s patron saint, St Patrick. The saint is reputed to have built a church on the hill that overlooks the village and the remnants of this still exist today. 4 miles from Glenosheen and 6 miles southeast of Kilmallock sits the market town of Kilfnane, the highest town in County Limerick. Kilfnane boasts an excellent outdoor education centre for school, youth and adult groups with a wide range of adventure sports and courses including canoeing, rockclimbing, hillwalking, horseriding and abseiling to name but a few! County Limerick is rich in history and inheritance with its castles, museums and medieval churches. Rural charm with plenty to do and visit! A must for all the family.
