    Fantastic location a few minutes walk from courtouwn itself and a beautiful small beach at the end of the garden, the house was nice and spacious but warm in the winter , the host was incredibly helpful with any issues that arose and i would happily stay again

  • "The house is amazing, very comfortable, lovely and clean with everything you need, good quality bedding and comfy beds, with the sea at the bottom of the garden you wake up every morning to the sound of the waves."

    The owners live next door and are very accommodating, we had a dripping tap which was changed while we were out for the day, you can’t ask for more.

    The location right on the beach was amazing and the access down to the beach by the steps was really great. A wonderful, relaxing place to spend time and unwind. - August 2023

  • "Amazing property that comfortably accommodated 8."

    Very spacious but well equipped with everything you need. Waking up to the sound of the sea every morning was just perfect. Loved the private access to the beach. The hosts were very approachable and helped out whenever needed. A truly relaxing house with breathtaking views!

  • "Brian and his wife were very welcoming and responded quickly to any minor issues."

    I have an EV and Brian rigged up an extension cable for me. The location is brilliant and convenient for trips to other places. Accommodation is comfortable and modern in a quiet position with beach access. As the house faces east it gets the morning sun, which warms the rooms. The disadvantage of this is the brightness in the bedrooms, so blackout blinds or curtains should be considered for future upgrades.

    Close to amenities..within ten mins drive to gorey and walking distance to court town.We had a sunny week.. The views of the sea we're beautiful and can be seen from all rooms. All facilities in the house made for an easy self-catering. On the days you don't want to cook there's plenty of restaurant and cafe to suit everyone's taste. I would recommend a stay at the beach house.

    Beautiful setting, beautiful house and a nice place to base yourself to visit around. Courtown is a short walk away and would recommend Ambrose Maloney for drinks, food and friendly staff. In Gorey I would highly recommend Katie Daley for food, everything we had there was delicious and we even went back for a takeaway and again lovely friendly staff.

  • "This is a lovely home which has been very well built in a stunning setting with beautiful views of the sky and sea."

    There are steps down to the house which wasn’t mentioned in the blurb and were tricky for my 80 year old mother- in- law to navigate especially after a couple of jars. The house is very clean and the beds were comfy, however the dining table only seats six people and the living area would benefit from an extra comfy chair or two, to allow everyone to sit and relax in the evenings. There is a well stocked shop in walking distance and the local pub Jimmys was a great place to sit and enjoy the faultless Guinness, with welcoming company and live music to dance to. A couple of torches would have been welcomed for the journey home in the evenings as the dirt road leading to the house is dark and full of pot holes. Trips out to the Carracloe beach and Vinegar Hill were also enjoyed and we would highly recommend staying in the beach house because we really didn’t want to leave!

  • "Fantastic place to stay, extremely quiet and peaceful, sun drenched (when its about) and wonderful sea views."

    Steep steps down to the lovely private beach. Morning sunrises and evening moon rises were beautiful. 5 mins walk to supermarket and only a 20 minute walk to Courtown amenities. Seemed to have underfloor heating but no info or instructions on this. Comfortable beds and pillows but found the sofa awkward. Lots of room to spread out and enjoy your stay. The dinning table and chairs were superb and the kitchen facilities excellent. Would be useful to have better instructions on how things work. Couldnt find how to work oven but after fiddling around with the dials we managed. Similar for shower system. Same could be said for the microwave, dishwasher and TV i.e. provide better easy to follow guides. The plug and drain hole in the downstairs bathroom needs replacing due to limescale deposits and damaged edges. The plug sticks and its difficult to open it so you end up with a full dirty basin. It looks like someone has tried to use a screwdriver or knife to force it up each time it sticks. Regular descaling and cleaning will prevent this happening. I suggest providing a separate recycling bin for cans and bottles. Also label each outside bin, one for recycle. It might sound like Im complaing but Im trying to be helpful. In fact the opposite is true - we loved it and would definitely stay again.

  • "The property was perfect it was very safe , private but not isolated, had a great garden for our two small dogs to run around they were totally at home and so content lazing around!"

    We were a party of two couples so we had plenty of space , a floor each with our own en-suite bathrooms very clean and comfortable. The kitchen / living area was open plan perfect for all our needs, anything you needed was there to dine in, pots /pans /slow cooker etc table wear and glasses were all very nice ! There was a fantastic supermarket 5 minutes walk away. Dishwasher and washing machine are intergraded in kitchen and water was always hot for showers etc. The location was beyond all expectations no matter what the weather was like the sea views were fabulous ..sunrise especially… a dream setting and our host was on hand with any issues …..Wi-Fi is not wonderful as it comes and goes! I would return for another week tomorrow if I could ,it was a very relaxing home to stay in . Only downside was the table on patio needs welded and another armchair in living space would be nice , not a complaint just a suggestion! Thanks again our stay in this home was unforgettable

    We had young children with us and the enclosed garden overlooked by the living area was brilliant. The children could play outside within view whilst we relaxed and or prepared dinner. The access to the beach was great. The beach itself is a bit pebbly but that didn’t stop the children having great fun. I would highly recommend this house.

  • "We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful house right on the beach."

    The house is very well positioned to take advantage of the views of sea and sky which change throughout the day as the sun travels from east to west. The house has everything you need for a self catering holiday with family and friends. It is modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. It is very comfortable and always warm and cosy. The jewel in the crown is the beach at the bottom of the steps leading directly from the garden - we were fortunate with the weather and swam every day. It was always very hard to leave the house but we did travel down the coast to Morriscastle and Curracloe beaches which are lovely. Gorey is great for shopping and lunch in the Cowhouse on the Courtown Road is a must - along with the fresh berries and jams for sale in the farm shop there. All in all a fabulous home from home. Definitely coming back!!

  • "We had a fantastic stay at the Beach House over Easter."

    The house is fabulous, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could need. Beds were extremely comfortable, showers fantastic and my children enjoyed using the toys provided in the lovely large garden. But what this house is really about is the views and the beach! Beautiful sea views from every window, we enjoyed watching the sun rise in the morning and the moon reflecting on the sea at night. The house has steps directly down from the garden to a lovely private beach, we were so lucky to get good weather over our stay so we really enjoyed spending time here. The local area is great for exploring with lovely restaurants, activities for kids and many beaches. Elisha and Brian were wonderful hosts and responded quickly to any queries we had. This really was the best holiday property we have stayed at- either at home or abroad, and we can't wait to return. The photos really don't do it justice. I will miss falling asleep to the sound of the waves! Thank you so much Elisha and Brian for a wonderful holiday.

    The weather was fantastic for January. We experienced beautiful morning sunrises - with steps down to your own private beach. In the evenings we had the comfort of the wood burning stove. Co Wexford is renowned for its many white sandy beaches. Courtown has great woodland walks. Overall, a great break. It really was hard to leave this place.

    Gorgeous view of the ocean with private access, just need to be cautious of the rock steps closer to the beach. The kitchen is fully equip for all your cooking needs. The couple renting the house were friendly. We’ll definitely return for another vacation. Unfortunately we were work up at 7.30am during the week day mornings because of building work on a site beside the house. This was the only downside. I highly recommend his house.

    The house is gorgeous - newly built, spotlessly clean and with a fully equipped kitchen. It’s beautifully decorated and the owners have added lots of little details to make the stay more enjoyable, from a gorgeous welcome pack, to a box of kids’ beach toys to an outdoor tap to wash away the sand from the beach. The owners themselves were so warm and welcoming, from offering to carry in suitcases to being available via phone to answer any questions and make recommendations.

The only downside is the entrance to the property from the main road ,it is narrow and the surface is loose chippings and there are many potholes .
