    “Cosy comfortable accommodation in a lovely rural location.”

    Ballyglass Thatched Cottage fulfilled all our criteria for a relaxing couple break with our elderly dog. For us it was perfect, a traditional but beautifully modernised stone thatched cottage tucked away down narrow lanes and surrounded by fields. The cottage was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding towns, villages and attractions. Particular highlights were the Arigna Mining Experience, Belvedere House and Strokestown Park and Famine museum ...

    Ballyglass Thatched Cottage fulfilled all our criteria for a relaxing couple break with our elderly dog. For us it was perfect, a traditional but beautifully modernised stone thatched cottage tucked away down narrow lanes and surrounded by fields. The cottage was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding towns, villages and attractions. Particular highlights were the Arigna Mining Experience, Belvedere House and Strokestown Park and Famine museum. It was a pleasure to return each evening where our exhausted hound could stretch out in front of the stove. The kitchen was well equipped with all the essentials required for cooking proper meals at the end of the day. Most importantly the bed was comfortable and we both slept extremely well. We only used the downstairs bedroom but had we had children with us they would have been delighted with the spiral staircase and ladder to the beds in the rafters above us. The yard would not have been secure for a small lively dog but our ancient boy was contained and pottered happily. We met the owner Mr Fallon who was warm, friendly and welcoming and checked we were settled and happy. If you are looking for a cosy cottage away from the bustle of everyday life I would highly recommend a visit to Ballyglass Thatched Cottage.
