“The cottage was ideal for a real chilled out holiday”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spend a great week at the cottage in the heart of Ireland. Despite indifferent weather we found the cottage an ideal base from which to explore and more importantly somewhere to really slow down and chill out. My initial concern at there not being wifi in the cottage was soon dispelled by the real time we spent together as a family. The views are brilliant, especially from the conservatory (I spent most of my time in the cottage there particularly on sunny mornings).

The cottage was very spacious, comfortable and very homely.

The owners contacted us by text and I felt they would be on hand should the need have arisen.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“This was just the place we were looking for and we totally enjoyed it.”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was a beautiful spacious and well laid out cottage that has been rebuilt by the owners who have kept the old world charm that we enjoy so much. The open fire and log burner gave out so much heat that the central heating was not required at all. Also we enjoyed the large gardens and outside space.

Although located in a peaceful setting we found it to be central to all the surrounding places that we wanted to visit so I would recommend this property to anyone.

The owner was in frequent contact with us to inquire if we needed anything and if there was anything that she could do for us but everything was just perfect.
She was a lovely lady and a pleasure to deal with we will definitely come back again.

“Quaint Cottage, in need of some TLC”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the cottage for 2 weeks, very good location to Dublin, Galway and West Point, nice summer room, nice to sit in and read very relaxing looking at the view through the window. Cottage is in need of some TLC and for two weeks we thought we should have had extra bed linen also there was not enough towels for 5 people.

It is with regret that the visitors choose a review to communicate their dissatisfaction .In the three years I have been renting the cottage this is the first time guests have ignored my attempts to communicate with them on arrival. On arrival I rang, texted and emailed the clients to ensure that all was well They did not respond . On my visit had they requested new linen or dissatisfaction with the bathrooms these issues would have been addressed immediately but these were not mentioned. Im delighted so many of my guests have enjoyed their time in the cottage and have communicated this in my many positive reviews

The cottage was wonderful, plenty of space inside and out, it had all of the equipment to make our stay easy and comfortable, the owner and her family were amazing, really helpful and so welcoming, we experienced the warm hospitality of a real Irish family, which added to our experience. We will be going back again.

“A JEWEL IN THE HEART OF IRELAND”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

'The Cottage' is the perfect choice for a peaceful Irish getaway.
The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, although we didn't even meet her - meaning our privacy was completely maintained.
The large detached house is magical and luxurious, with a traditional feel. The garden and the views are exceptional, our littlens were constantly entertained by the cattle in the adjacent field (cutest calves!)
Thanks Maeve for ensuring we had the best possible Easter holiday - we're already planning our return visit!
