  • "A lovely home with really good facilities, comfortable, clean, bright, great comfortable beds."

    Outside looks great, would be lovely to be in if later in the year to partake in barbecues. I would suggest putting Mirrors into the Bedrooms for the ladies to put on their make up. Would recommend replacing the Armchairs for a more comfortable and restful sitting. Would also recommend more TV channels, very limited choice that one would expect. Overall a great venue to spend some holiday time. Close to Wexford town and all the wonderful beaches and villages.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay in 19 River Glen."

    It is such a lovely, well situated house, and has a wonderful modern heating system also. The house is just a 5 minute walk from Hotel Curracloe which serves wonderful food at reasonable prices. The house is just a 10 minute drive from the magnificent sandy Curracloe beach and it's a 10 minute drive to the nature reserve which has a lovely 7km looped walk, which we did daily. Wexford Town is about 5 miles away and it is a beautiful town with lots of independent retailers and lovely restaurants which we sampled!. We have decided to return to 19 River Glen next summer as we enjoyed our holiday so much there!. Thanks to Mark, the owner and Sykes for the booking!. Cheers.Anne.

    Hi Anne, Thanks so much for staying with us and your kind review. Looking forward to having you back!! Regards, Mark Property Owner

    3 minutes walk to hotel, which does great food, 5 minutes walks to pub and grocery store. Large enclosed back garden, great for eating out in the good weather, and our dog had plenty of space to play and rest. Host provided excellent pre-arrival information and was contactable during our stay for any any further queries. If it was possible to provide 20/10 we would. Many thanks.

    Thanks very much Ursula!! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay as it is what we endeavor to do! I hope you have a lot of fond memories of the area. Thanks again for staying with us and leaving the house in such good order. Regards, Mark Property Owner

  • "The house is in an ideal location, walking distance to local shop, post office, take away, hotel which does good food."

    Its within 5 min drive to beach. It was ideal for my family with very young kids, large back garden, plenty of room for a dog. The house was very clean and had everything you would need for self catering. Host was in contact prior to arrival to arrange key collection and during stay. We had a great week in Wexford!

  • "Great location."

    Across the road from Curracloe Hotel, 5min walk to village and 5-10min drive to beach. Spacious back garden which is great if you have a dog. Safe to let her roam around on her own. However we came across some issues with ceanliness. On arrival, dirty cups were found in the press and press with food wasnt wiped out, food left there from previous guests. Table cloth not wiped down, crumbs all over it. Unsanitary products left behind in bathroom and enuite from previous guests - razors, face cloths, loofah. The table and chairs outside were absolutely filthy. We spent about 1hr cleaning them before we could sit outside. House is outdated. Could do with a bit of refurbishment. Window blinds not great for keeping light out and window on landing has no blind.Very bright at 4/5am - very hard to sleep with light coming in. We had to put up black sacks to try make it darker. Overall we enjoyed our stay due to its central location, but in terms of holiday homes, this is the worst standard we've stayed in to date.

    Thanks Trish for your feedback. I certainly regret to hear of your disappointments with your time at the property. We endeavor to have each and every guest experience a pleasant stay. From time to time there will be issues that need to be addressed and we make every effort to address them as soon as possible provided we're made aware. In discussing key arrangements with incoming guests there are items that I explain i.e. Wi Fi passwords, bin collections, heating controls etc. Before I end any call with incoming guests I always inform them that if they have any questions or issues to feel free to contact me. I wish this had happened in your own case as I would have made every effort to rectify the issues in your review previous to the end of your stay particularly the cleanliness issue. The poor feedback is well out of character for my cleaners as the past reviews concerning cleanliness have consistently been positive. Had I been informed that you were concerned with the cleanliness of the house upon your arrival the cleaners would've been made to return to correct any 'oversights' to your satisfaction. In summary, looking past some disappointment I'm glad that you mentioned 'overall you enjoyed your stay' . Regards, Mark Property Owner

  • "I am a university scientist from England and was doing a project on ivy bees in the area and stayed on my own in River Glen for one week in October 2022 as the local Curracloe Hotel was full up for one critical night."

    It all worked very well and I would recommend the house and set up to others. Everything was simple and worked and I had good contact by phone and text with the owner to get the key etc. It is a modern house in a small but very nice estate of detached houses, so anyone wanting a traditional cottage or character house would need to look elsewhere. The house has a bathroom, en suite and a downstairs toilet and a spacious kitchen diner and would work for up to 5 or 6 people, with 2 large bedrooms and one small bedroom each with 2 beds or a double bed. There is off road parking. The large amount of space and large garden with a slide was rather wasted on me. It is in a good location in the centre of Curracloe village which has a post office, shop, pub and hotel and is 2 miles form beaches and about 5 miles to Wexford town. Would work for a family with a few kids on a seaside trip or almost any trip.

  • "The house was perfect for our family holiday by Curacloe Beach."

    There is plenty of space and cheerful light in all the rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed. The sitting room and outside patio were both comfortable for relaxing in the evening. The garden is huge and has a lovely play house with slide, a BBQ and a large dining table. There is a hotel that does good pub grub across the road, Curacloe village is a 5 minute walk and the beach is a 5-10 minute drive away. We all loved every bit of the holiday, even our dog! Our host Mark was also very friendly and helpful.

  • "The house was fantastic, great location, lovely house , very very well equipped but the sofa let it down badly, I saw that mentioned in previous reviews and assumed it would have been sorted but it wasn't, I loved the place and the owner was grand."

    But that sofa would stop me booking it again. It needs to be changed. I don't want to end on a negative so I would say once things sorted I would book this again. We had a great week in Curracloe. Loved it.

    Thanks Paul for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay for the most part. I understand your disappointment with the sofa and have had the issues with it addressed. I have had the sofa and chairs refurbished by a furniture restorer to get them back to 'like new' condition and hope to hear from you again! Regards, Mark Property Owner

    The property owner was more that helpful and was very easy to contact. The house is just accross the road from Curracloe Hotel and a few minutes drive to one of the best sandy beaches in Ireland.

Inside, the kitchen with dining area is bright and spacious with French doors to the patio, and the sitting room benefits from a cosy open fire, and boasts squashy comfy sofas, great for relaxing on after a long day.

Outside, this Curracloe cottage has a patio with furniture and BBQ, which provides a great entertaining space for adults, while the enclosed garden and play house are great for children.
