  • "Lovely cottage with everything you need and more."

    We found that it was ideally situated for travelling. Very quiet and beautiful setting. Ramsgrange is only a short drive and perfectly within walking distance.

  • "Great stay."

    . would recommend this property for couples and senior singles. Not good for small children… but there is a lovely beach in Duncannon ten minutes drive away. Highly recommend the Strand in Duncannon for food and Guinness

  • "Beautiful little cottage, very clean and all is there what you need!"

    Joan had the table set with a lovely lemon cake, cookies and even fresh milk in the fridge for a welcoming cup of tea! A lovely family too be with. Rose cottage is quite central to New Ross, Wexford, Waterford (via passage east) and the Hook lighthouse. Tinten Abbey with nice walks through the woods and The Hallow fish and steakhouse just around the corner. There's a shed beside the house e.g. for bicycles. Definitely a place to come back!

    Thank you Markus for your lovely feedback. We really enjoyed having you and your family stay in Rose Cottage. Hope to see you all again in the future. Joan Property Owner

  • "This cottage was excellent in every way."

    Very well kitted out with facilities including dish washer, and washing machine which we didn't use. The only very slight downfall was needing to get the owners in to help us make sense of the instruction manual for the beautiful new cooker and hob Which worked perfectly well but like all other electronic, computerised equipmejt expected the users to have a degree in compter sciences before the first use. It was clean and comfortable and there was tea, milk, a cake and biscuits there to welcome us on arrival.

    Thank you Julie for your great feedback. I am glad you both enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you again in the future. Joan Property Owner

  • "We liked the cottage and its location which we found to be very convenient for touring the beautiful area."

    It had everything we expected. Joan did her best to get the TV to pick up British stations but the engineer who came reported that the sycamore tree was obstructing the satellite dish! The double bed we didn’t find particularly comfortable. Maybe it was the thickness of the duvet? The weather was quite warm! An enjoyable stay. Thank you.

    Thank you Alan for your feedback. Unfortunatley we couldn't solve the T.V. issue during your stay with us however the problem has since been rectified. All stations are now availble in our cottage. If only you had voiced your concern about the duvet, I could have given you our lighter Summer duvet on request as the weather is rather unpredictable at the moment. Thanks again for staying with us. We hope to welcome you both again in the near future. Joan Property Owner

    The only down side was that the weather was so beautiful and warm that we did not need to light the fire which was left all ready for us, a fire would have made it even more cosy.

  • "Mrs Cooley was very friendly and helpful."

    The cottage was lovely and had all the appliances you would need. I was very happy to see there was a wifi connection as I didn't realise that my phone service provider would not be available in Ireland. Southern Ireland is a beautiful place to visit and I would recommend anyone to go and to stay in Rose Cottage.

  • "We arrived to a warm and comfortable cottage on a cold evening and Joan had lovely scones waiting for us."

    There was a pub close by, called "The Hollow", which served first class meals. After eating there on the first night we knew we would not be going anywhere else to eat. Shops were about 2km away. There were many interesting places to visit in the surrounding area and the only unfortunate part was that our time went too quickly. We had a lovely time and are looking forward to going back for another holiday. Therese & Kevin

The property

Duncannon 1.6 miles.

This superbly-presented detached cottage sits in a rural position next to the owners’ working livestock and arable farm, within easy reach of the popular seaside village of Duncannon in County Wexford.

Lovingly furnished throughout, this Duncannon cottage offers a homely base for small families, and an ideal romantic retreat for couples.

Set entirely across the ground floor, there are two delightful bedrooms, a shower room and an open plan living area with a spacious kitchen, a quaint dining area and a cosy sitting area where you can warm any achy bones by the fire after a jam-packed day wandering the surrounding hills and sandy beaches.

Outside this charming Wexford cottage is a quaint seating area where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining.

The charming fishing village of Duncannon is home to a wonderful, golden stretch of sandy beach, a popular spot with locals and tourists and the ideal place to spend the day swimming and sunbathing.

The village welcomes many visitors each year, as it is located on the scenic Ring of Hook, and once a year Duncannons Sand Sculpting Festival provides a superb day out where you can witness some remarkable, if short-lived creations.

Visit the Hook Peninsula where you can view the beautiful Tintern Abbey and also Loftus Hall, where you can take part in a tour of what is reputed to be Irelands most haunted house.

Within easy reach are many exciting family-friendly activities including kite surfing and pony trekking.

The lively town of New Ross is only a short drive away, and is bursting with fine restaurants, traditional pubs alive with music, and excellent shops to dip into and locate your perfect souvenir.

New Ross is also well worth a trip to visit the Dunbrody Famine Ship and the John F Kennedy Homestead, both places creating memorable day trips.

Whatever your age or taste, there is something for everyone in this wonderful part of Wexford.
