  • "The hostess Helen was a very pleasant lady who was attentive and respectful in ensuring that our stay was pleasant and restful and that we were accommodated in every way."

    We found this to be a lovely warm, safe, homely place to rest, restore and regenerate with beautiful beaches and places of interest within 10 to 30 minute driving distances. Thank-you.

  • "Helen Horan was the perfect host."

    She baked us some lovely bunny too welcome us to her lovely home. Everything that we may have needed was provided and more. Helen gave us local information about places to visit which was so useful. We hope to return to Ash Drive next year.

  • "This was the best house our family has stayed in for our summer holidays."

    It is very clean, comfortable and well equiped. Eventhough it is ajoining to the owners home it is very private with a lovely garden to enjoy. The owner Helen is a lovely woman, very friendly and helpful. There is lots to do in the area within driving distance.

  • "We had a wonderful time as a family at Ash Drive House."

    Helen was a lovely host and ensured we had everything we needed during our stay. The kids really loved staying on a working farm and the ducks and chickens walking around the property added to their excitement. We all felt it was a home from home and would definitely stay there again in the future.

  • "Helen, the owner was welcoming and friendly and everything was in good order when we arrived, the house is attached at the side of the main house on a working farm and it was nice for us city folks to see cows, hens, ducks and two friendly dogs about the place (the cows at a safe distance in a field nearby!"

    ). All in all a lovely restful week in a beautiful part of the country..

  • "The property was perfect and just as described and the owner Helen was so friendly and helpful and if there is anything you need you only have to ask her."

    The house was spacious, clean and is well equipped with everything you could need. The wood burner was easy to light but as the range provided central heating and hot water we didn’t need to use the fire. The house is in a beautiful setting with gorgeous countryside views and travel to Gorey or the beach are only 10-15 minutes away. Helen’s dogs are friendly but not intrusive and we loved watching the parade of ducks through the garden everyday. We have had a great week and in fact we loved it so much we have already booked again for next year. We would most definitely recommend this property it is as I said just perfect.

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay."

    The house is very well equipped, and everything worked perfectly. The owners live next door, and were very helpful and welcoming. The house is about 180 yards form the road, and not easy to see from there. I missed the driveway twice. My Garmin satnav got the co-ordinates right, but gave the house as being on the wrong side of the road! There is a useful agricultural sign on the opposite side of the road about 30-40 yards from the entrance to the driveway - ask about it when you are arranging to collect the keys. RE

  • "The cottage is lovely, perfect for what we needed."

    Helen and Sam are so very welcoming too, it was lovely to arrive to some essentials and a homemade apple pie! If we needed anything they were available to help/provide, and their 2 friendly dogs added to our holiday. We're hoping to book again for next year.

  • "We had a fabulous week in Helen and Sam holiday home."

    They were very kind to us and our children. The house was perfect with amazing views of the country side. Very near the beach and all other amenities a short drive. The house was so clean. Helen had tea coffee milk and lovely little home made cakes for the kids which was a lovely surprise. Will definitely return.

    There`s a lot of shrubbery around the windows & when opened several insects flew in. We stayed one night & caught the ferry back to England the following morning.

    Perfect hosts, even went so far as getting us supplies in to save us stopping for shopping on our way from the airport - AND made us an "apple pie". Felt completely at home. Lovely peaceful surroundings. Wonderful friendly people without being intrusive.

The property

Ballycanew 1.8 miles.

Situated next to the owner’s home, near the village of Ballycanew in the north of County Wexford, is this charming semi-detached cottage.

Lovingly decorated and furnished throughout, this cosy cottage is ideal for two couples or a small family looking to tour and discover the delights of the Sunny South East.

Set against the rolling green fields and sprawling countryside of County Wexford, the cottage provides a home away from home and comprises a fitted kitchen, which comes well equipped for your needs during your stay.

The cosy sitting room is complemented by a woodburning stove for extra comfort.

Three comfortable bedrooms complete the accommodation, where you can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep before tomorrow’s adventures.

To the front, little ones can play on the swings in the garden whilst you soak up the charm of the glorious countryside.

To the rear of the cottage you will find a delightful sun trap area with furniture where you can catch the evening rays before the sun slinks beyond the horizon.

The village of Ballycanew is home to a selection of shops and pubs and is a superb base for exploring the Sunny South East with endless beaches to sample at Courtown, Curracloe and Poulshone to name but a few.

Why not try a spot of sailing or windsurfing, or if your sea legs are not too good you can always visit Ferns Castle or wander one of the many walking trails in the area?

Wells House and Gardens is set just a five minute drive away and is a wonderful, historical house to visit, with forest walks, a children’s playground, archery and craft shops.

A trip to the Avoca Woollen Mills and the stunning lakes at Glendalough in County Wicklow are also a must during your stay here.

For sea, sand and Sunny South East culture, this charming cottage is the perfect choice!
