  • "Lovely location and we really enjoyed the quaintness of the property."

    The only things that was holding back from being a perfect stay. 1. Pillows were flat and hard 2. Bedding was poor quality, bottom sheet was full of nubs and hair. It was very scratchy and kind of gross picking hair off. 3. The sofa really needs to be changed out, it’s seen its day and is very uncomfortable and needs a good cleaning. 4. The property could use some fine tuning in the cleaning , overall decent, however, lots of cobwebs, night table wasn’t too clean , dressing table needed a good dusting. Overall we enjoyed our stay .. the biggest drawback being the poor quality bedding. Not at all as photographed. And the sofa is very tired and not at all in the condition like the picture. Very easy complaints from me to fix. Shower was great, bed comfortable, lots of towels, soaps etc. Very friendly owners and a very sweet horse.

  • "The sofa in the living was terrible and very uncomfortable to sit on."

    Far too low. I struggled to get in/out of it. Really let the place down. We struggled with finding the place and found the directions very poor. This led to a poor first impression of the cottage. The curtain rail about the bed was broken and needs repair. The bed was very comfortable and it overall the cottage was lovely. The hosts were friendly without being intrusive.

  • "We had the best holiday we have ever had in this beautiful little cottage."

    The area and the dwelling itself were exactly what was listed and perfect for what we wanted. The lovely couple who owned or ran the cottage were such wonderful and helpful people and the village within walking distance has stolen our hearts too. We will be back and staying in exactly the same spot again. Superb.

    We were made to feel most welcome. So lovely and quiet. We could only hear birds and the cockerel first thing in the morning.

About the location

Ardfinnan is a small village situated close to the Knockmealdown Mountains on the River Suir, in the south of County Tipperary. The village features a beautiful open green, several good pubs, a shop, and Ardfinnan Castle, an impressive Norman construction hovering majestically in the centre of this picturesque village. Just eight miles away, the lively town of Clonmel lies close to the border of Tipperary and Waterford. The town is probably most famous for being the home of Magners Cider and has a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. Full of history, Clonmell is the only town in Ireland that managed to hold off Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army during his siege on Ireland in the 17th century, using the tactics of General O’Neill, the townsfolk were evacuated to safety. The nearby Nire Valley offers many walking and cycling opportunities, with the Comeragh Mountains as an impressive backdrop. Ardfinnan is close to the M8 motorway, providing easy access to County Cork and Dublin, the perfect base for exploring Ireland, all year round!
