  • "Owner Brian met us at our arrival with a nice Irish welcome."

    He was available during our weeklong stay as well. Cairbre House easily accommodated our group of seven. Plenty of bathrooms! Clean rooms. Beautiful views of the gardens and estuary. An easy 8 minute walk to a grocery store. A pleasant 15 minute walk into Dungarvan which is a very nice town with everything one might need. Plenty of pubs!

  • "Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Cairbre House sehr genossen."

    Das Haus ist sehr ruhig und hat einen besonderen Charme, wie man ihn nur in historischen Häusern findet. Es liegt sehr günstig, weil Supermarkt, Pubs und Restaurants wie die ganze Innenstadt innerhalb von 10 - 15 Minuten fußläufig zu erreichen sind. Und Brian ist ein sehr sympathischer , freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Susanne & Olaf

  • "For nostalgic, old-fashioned charm and comfort, set in the heavenly realms of rose gardens with exotic trees amongst the dramatic and continually changing estuary landscape with its own theatre of birds, fishes, and wildlife Caibre House is truly a Garden of Eden experience."

    Being solidly built, the walls are immense, so the sound is absorbed, making the whole experience so peaceful, with every window view majestic. Brian is a kindly host and more like a family member in terms of warm welcome and generosity, even to sharing the spoils of the kitchen garden. Absolutely everything was thoughtfully provided. A big thank you for a great experience.

    It has obviously been a much loved home. Perfect holiday destination and Brian and Marian made us feel most welcome. We had all the space and facilities we needed and enjoyed spending time in the beautiful garden, from where we spotted otters swimming in the estuary. We would love to go back.

  • "This is possibly the best house we have stayed in."

    It has everything you could possibly need for a great stay. The bedrooms have a wonderful view from every room - every bedroom is en-suite with the most comfortable beds. It is a very short walk to the center of Dungarvan which is a sweet town, even though you are close to the town, all you can hear are the birds in the ample garden. We had a big family gathering - 17 people and all fitted comfortably between the living room and dining room. Thanks to Brian and the team for making our visit so lovely.

    It simply delivered on all fronts. The location is incredible with everything you need only a stone throw away, bars restaurants and even the Greenway! The house is a period home with so much to offer, space, charm and sea views! Every bedroom is equipped with an en suite, ideal for family or group getaway! We couldn’t recommend this guest house more and Brian offers stellar concierge service, such a kind man - he even lent us two of his bikes! Can’t wait to go back!

    Everything was as described and the house was ideal for the family birthday party that we had been planning for three years. It was great to have a roaring log fire each day and Brian was always in the background to answer any questions. The situation of the property was especially convenient, a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and a short drive to a good range of facilities.

    There were 9 of us and the house is walking distance to all the restaurants. This is especially handy when parents can escape the children for a while and grandparents can takeover. I must say Dungarvan is a foodie town, much more than anywhere in Northern Ireland. Brian was an excellent host, any issue being sorted quickly. I would recommend this house for any family wishing to get together. Adrian G

  • "Oh my, where do even start?"

    Firstly, Brian and Marie are amazing hosts and incredibly generous with nothing being too much trouble!! And I do mean that…they picked our group of five ladies from the bus stop so they wouldn’t have to walk the 15 minutes with their bags, they let the Nissan car rental drop the car off for us a day ahead of time and kept the paperwork and key safe, and then Brian even dropped my payment for the car off for me!!! Brian was always on hand for every little thing…how to open the window, fix a thing, answer questions, give the local history, tell us where to find live music and good eats!!! Couldn’t have asked for a better host!!! Our group was seven women and there was room for us all!! Admittedly, we didn’t cook at all…preferred to have a substantial lunch out and pick in the evenings. We did make good use of the lounge and dining room…and of course we spent loads of time sunning ourselves (we had the MOST AMAZING WEATHER ALL WEEK!!) in both the front and back gardens. The table and chairs are very comfortable. As for distance to town, it’s a 15 minute walk in to town, but if you need to drive, there’s plenty of parking. You’ll pass the seal on the surfboard out in the estuary which could be seen most days. Don’t miss The Local for afternoon eats….fantastic food, and live music in the evenings….stop by and ask them which nights. If you’re looking for a great place to stay with a large group…you’ve found it! We had a wonderful time and found the house a home from home. (THANK YOU Brian and Marie!!)

    The owners, Brian and Marie, achieve a perfect balance between all mod cons including WiFi, and retaining the character of a house from an earlier time. We spent lots of time in the kitchen by the aga, and in the guest lounge around the open fire. There is central heating too of course. And even though it was March, we had a sunny week and spent as much time as we could in the lovely gardens. It's so good to find a home that has character and is so obviously loved.

  • "We had a fantastic week at Cairbre House, which has the feel of a much-loved family home."

    The bedrooms (all en suite) had very comfortable beds and the living space downstairs is ideal for a larger family or group. As well as the kitchen there is a utility room with a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The sitting room has an open fire – fortunately we did not need this in July but it would be lovely and cosy in the colder months. Brian the owner is very friendly and always able to answer any questions. He is often to be seen hard at work in the beautiful gardens. We loved sitting outside and enjoying the wonderful view over the estuary. When the tide is in it comes right up to the garden wall and when it is out there are lots of different types of birds to spot (handy identification posters as you go out of the back door!) and sometimes seals. Cairbre House is on the outskirts of Dungarvan but it is a very easy walk into the town centre which has a good range of shops and restaurants. This is a lovely part of Ireland and there are lots of ways to enjoy the scenery - we hired bikes and cycled along the Waterford Greenway, walked out onto the Cunnigar Spit, took a trip on the Waterford Suir Valley Railway and drove into the Comeragh Mountains to take the trail up to the Mahon Falls. We did not have time to visit all the places that we wanted to so would love to stay at Cairbre House again.

The property

Located on the shores of the Colligan River estuary and set in the colourful harbour town of Dungarvan, nestled within beautiful County Waterford in Ireland, is Cairbre House.

This listed building is steeped in history, dating back to 1819, it enjoys a traditional feel inside, perfect for large groups of friends and families looking to explore all the treasures of the surrounding area.

For at least the past 100 years this house, formally once part of the Duke of Devonshire's Waterford Estate, played host to an award-winning bed and breakfast.

It now retains much of its character and charm, from the pretty climbers cascading up the exterior, to the sash windows and country-style décor.

The cottage opens up into a hallway and through to the reception room with a luxurious chaise-longue.

A fully equipped kitchen is accompanied by a large dining room and utility with washing facilities, whilst the sitting room boasts a cosy open fire set within a beautiful mantelpiece.

Each of the bedrooms boast a traditional style, with en-suite shower facilities to refresh you each morning, with the first floor bedrooms, kitchen and dining room overlooking the stunning one acre waterfront setting and river estuary.

There is also a wooden-clad bathroom serving the first floor bedrooms, with an additional W.C and shower conveniently located at ground floor level.

Outside, the mature gardens contain many rare and unusual plants including a rose garden which compliment the manicured lawns extending across the front and rear of the house.

A secret enclosed garden enjoys hours of fun for hide-and-seekers, with a lovely barbecue area benefitting picturesque, estuary views backed by the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains.

This town is a real haven for anglers, surfers, cyclists and walking enthusiasts, with many attractions beckoning visitors of all ages.

There are plenty of long, sandy beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as a thriving nightlife.

The Waterford Greenway is a major attraction, this is a 26 mile long spectacular off-road cycle /walking trail on the site of a disused railway line stretching all the way from Dungarvan to Waterford City, passing through scenic countryside, crossing 3 high viaducts, a long atmospheric tunnel and 11 bridges, Opened in 2017, the Waterford Greenway starts a short 5 mins walk from Cairbre House (for visitors who have not got their own bikes there are numerous bike hire shops in town).

Dungarvan Bay and the Colligan River Estuary are designated as Special Areas of Conservation, hosting a wide range of sea and shore birds, seals and otter are frequently seen from the house and gardens.

Cork City sits just inland on Ireland's Southwest coast, only 1 hours drive away, it is connected to the sea by Cork harbour, this is a beautiful city steeped in history with its center sitting on its own island on the River Lee.

Kilkenny City, also 1 hours drive away is a medieval city with its castle dating back to 1195 built by Norman Occupiers, The town has deep religious roots and many well-preserved churches and monasteries, including imposing St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Black Abbey Dominican priory, both from the 13th century.

It's also a crafts hub, with shops along its winding lanes selling pottery, paintings and jewellery.
