  • "A beautiful cottage in a quiet rural location."

    The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel extremely welcome

  • "The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring South East Ireland including Waterford, the Copper coast and Kilkenny."

    The cottage, which has its own garden and patio area, is situated behind the property owners house. Parking space is located to the front on the owner’s house. It is a very quiet and peaceful location with views of the mountains and surrounding countryside. The owners were always very friendly and made us welcome. The downstairs of the cottage is a spacious and comfortable open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, and provides access to a small shower room and toilet. The upstairs sleeping accommodation is more basic. There is a comfortable double bed but springs could be felt on each of the three single beds . Areas of the cottage require a through clean including the shower which would benefit from a deep clean.

  • "A warm welcome from a very generous couple."

    They couldn't do enough for us and made our stay very enjoyable. The quaint cottage tucked away in the owners garden made all the more welcoming by the wood burner with the supply of fuel readily available. The cottage is well equipped and spacious. We loved it.

  • "We renamed this little gem Butterfly Cottage, it was in a quiet and secluded location but just beautiful."

    The hosts Mike and Ann couldn’t have done enough for us to ensure our holiday was great. Having the outside space was fab as the temperatures soared. Everything we needed to hand. Beautiful part of the world. Definitely need your own transport to see surrounding areas.

    Loved to have ye staying always welcome Property Owner

  • "A lovely, tranquil, well equipped cottage with friendly, welcoming and helpful owners in a part of Eire full of interest, both historic sites and places to explore."

    We loved our week there. Wi-fi problematic, which was the only drawback and a problem with the area in general, not the owners. Highly recommended.

    Thank you loved to have ye here. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and quiet."

    Owners helpful but not intrusive. Shower effective despite low water pressure. Needs better directions to find it. We would not have found it without being able to plug the post code into Google Maps. Whoever is responsible should add instructions to turn off the N72 down the L.6067 which is opposite the L.5053 and travel down there for 800 metres where the owner's residence will be the second property on the right. Other road distances would help as would avoiding local knowledge suchas 'the xyz rouundabout'.
