    At the owl barn. The house has everything you need for a great holiday in the south east. All appliances etc worked perfectly. Beds very comfortable. Great space outside for kids to play. Hope to be back in 2023. Lisa & Fergal Dublin

  • "The downstairs bedroom has a leak in the flat roof and my aunts clothes got wet as water came in overnight due to it raining."

    I did raise this with Brian and he was going to deal with it. We do feel it should have been repaired prior to letting the entire property as it did take from our otherwise good experience.

    A full repair was carried out by our builder at the start of the season. Our builder revisited the property immediately. He is attending to this. I am glad we were able to facilitate these guests with a very late checkout as they had a young baby. We do our utmost to ensure guests have a truly wonderful time. Property Owner

  • "Owls Hoot was a lovely property with plenty of space as described, and photos very accurate, in a nice rural setting."

    For future reference more detailed instructions needed regarding operating the heating/hot water system, the TV, and Microwave. Suggest a manual left at the property with these detailed instructions. Cushions for the garden furniture would have been appreciated also, and a few more towels. I didn't appreciate that we had to take our rubbish to a service station and pay for disposal, this should be organised by the owner.

    We advise all guests that hot water in the main bathroom is via the heating system or the immersion. We will take on board the suggestion and provide more complete documentation. Refuse disposal is all off site and the responsibility of guests. We are very committed to our local environment. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house."

    Lovely area. Only issues were dealing with rubbish. More towels would be good. Have a great time and host was always communicative and available.

  • "A lovely cottage in a completely untouched and rural location, the pictures didn't do this property justice, it was absolutely amazing with loads of space."

    Reviewed by Philip5.0Oct 2019

  • "The cottage was lovely and in a great location."

    Well equipped and to a nice standard. However, the lack of a window that properly opened in the upstairs back bedroom meant it was unbearably stuffy at night and very difficult to get a good nights sleep. The shower in the en-suite did not flow and temperature was erratic. The shower door in the main bathroom did not close properly. The tv only works for DVD players and the WiFi was very poor. These were all things that could probably be fixed and would make it an amazing place.

The property

This detached barn conversion is resting in the village of Tacumshane.

Contemporary and inviting, there is a refreshing feel to this retreat and families will enjoy the spacious layout.

Wander in through the lovely entrance where an open plan sitting area is ready to greet you, with mismatched couches, and a charming wood burner.

The light and airy presence of this room creates a soothing place to relax at night time.

A stylish kitchen is well presented and carries an almost country theme for a homely effect.

Once you have prepared your favourite meals, the nearby dining area is ideal for sitting down and enjoying the peace and quiet.

Further round, a twin bedroom hosts lovely stone walls, then for an added effect, views look out over the shared lawned garden.

A perfect backdrop on a sunny day.

Wander up the stairs, and a double bedroom awaits, with a hint of glamour, tied together with a wardrobe and peaceful scenery.

Close by, a bathroom contains a bath and shower, with everything you need to get ready for the day ahead.

If this isn't enough, a second double bedroom is a signature part of this layout, adjoined to a classic en-suite; leading out to a wonderful decked area, so you can literally step into the sunshine.

Stroll into the village of Tacumshane when you get the chance, with its fishing and birdwatching opportunities, as well as beaches in easy reach.

The county town of Wexford is under 10 miles away, and boasts plenty of amenities including shops, bars and good restaurants.

This is an elegant cottage in a desirable location.

Note: This house can be rented with Sanderling Lodge (962010) and Swallow's Nest (962013) allowing a party of 18 to enjoy.

Kilmore Quay fishing village is a few miles down the road, and there are some lovely beaches, ideal for relaxing and playing on the sand.
