  • "I have been taking my dogs with me on holiday for at least 7 years."

    I have always found it difficult to find suitable walks within a reasonable distance. This was by far the best place I have stayed in for the dogs. Every walk I found from canal walks, to forest walks was within a twenty minute drive. This made my stay so much easier. The locals are so friendly and the community shop ladies are so helpful you will feel part of their community during your stay. This holiday was so good I have booked for another stay in September. Highly recommend. The cottage is well equipped and spotless, and the landlord very helpful and friendly. The garden is secure and safe which is a must when you have dogs.

  • "We stayed here with our family over October half term."

    It was a wonderful stay in a beautiful rural part of Ireland. There is much to see in Lorrha, steeped in history and the surrounding towns of Portumna and Nenagh. The cottages are clean, comfortable and retain their historic charm with fires to make the winter evenings cosy and welcoming. Roland is a great host and nothing was too much trouble. We'll be back. Would highly recommend.

  • "I would advise anyone who are taking pets to check their dogs have received a rabies vaccine three weeks prior to their holiday and have a pet passport."

    I was unfortunate to be able to take my two dogs away to Tipperary for a holiday. Though we left our dogs in good hands whilst we were away we made the most of the 10 days enjoying the beautiful countryside that Tipperary offered. The Courthouse is central to most places to visit. Take a map so you can see the Lochs, walks, places to visit. The owners (Donald and Pauline) are very nice couple and are helpful to recommend places to visit and eat out. If you take your car from Dublin there are two tolls to pay via cash or card and the M50 is an online payment.

  • "The cottage was a perfect getaway for us and the two dogs."

    It is located directly opposite a historic monument, in fact, there are three in the village, which is quiet but thoroughly charming. The sunny enclosed back garden was a great place to sit out in and eat meals while watching the Donkeys. The WiFi was the most reliable we've encountered in a rental cottage and meant we could do our research before heading off for the day out. There are many places to visit nearby, the highlights being Portumna Castle and gardens, Portumna Forest Park as well as Birr with its historic Georgian houses and Castle with an international scientific pedigree.
