Thank you for taking the time to review James Tymon cottage. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your family. I am very pleased you all enjoyed the cottage and grounds so much. You can really get away from it all on the paths and trails through the fields and by the river with only the sound of bird life to accompany you. As you said it's ideal for all age groups and especially for those with children and pets with lots to explore. With the peace and quiet it can be difficult to believe the village is only 1km away.
I am looking forward to having you return to the cottage in 2014. Best wishes until then.
Kieran.

“James Tymon Cottage, a gem in self-catering lodging.”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Every aspect of renting this cottage was first rate: from contact to payment to directions and arrival. Our gracious host and owner, Kieran Ruane, met us and provided an excellent tour of the property and its amenities, which included an apple tart with tea tray. Attention to detail is what sets this property apart from others. Immaculate in appearance, tastefully decorated with comfortable seating and beds.
The cottage is well supplied with kitchen ware, towels and bedding. A huge stack of peat is available for cool evening fires in the working fireplace. Satellite TV is provided as well as radio with CD player. The hairdryer was most appreciated. Washer and dryer are also on site. Outdoor seating options are pleasant and include a charcoal grill for cooking.
The property is large with groomed trails for walking and a steam for fishing. It is located on a peaceful rural road yet within waking distance of the local village, Gurteen (Gorteen). Gurteen has a well stocked grocery, pubs with traditional Irish music, and a discount-hardware store.
Several flyers for local attractions are in the foyer. We made good use of them during our stay.
James Tymon Cottage met all our needs and more, a true gem, with a most gracious and interesting host. Thanks for a memorable stay.

Your thoughtful and generous comments are very much appreciated and I am delighted the cottage added to the enjoyment of your holiday particularly that it was well stocked with all the utensils etc that you needed.I try to provide everything one needs for a stay in the cottage not just the bare necessities. As you found the local village is only a short walk away on a local rural road and is well catered for with a supermarket,pubs,hardware fuel station,post office and the Coleman music centre.Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review and I hope I will see both of you back at the cottage sometime in the future.

What a find! An excellent warm welcoming cottage superbly located for touring this idylic part of Ireland. The cottages extensive lands were a gem for our Hungarian Vizsla who never tired of chasing hares and pheasants over the cottages extensive well managed lands. Needless to say she never caught any. Gurteen is a gem for Traditional Music which is easily walkable if one wanted to leave the car at home. Kieran was most welcoming and the now infamous apple pie was waiting for us when we arrived. There is an abundance of turf to keep the range and fire going plus this is backed up by cental heating if required. An excellent cottage and we all had a great time. We will certainly be back to Tymons.

It was a great pleasure having you and your family stay at the cottage. I am very pleased you found it such a good base from which to discover this part of Ireland. As you have found for those with pets the cottage grounds and paths have great appeal. Thank you for your kind remarks and I hope to see you all again in the not too distant future.

Thank you for your warm endorsement. I am delighted your holiday was all you hoped it would be and that the cottage added to that enjoyment. You have discovered like other guests that some of the best coarse fishing in Ireland is all close at hand. looking forward to having you back at the cottage in the near future.

We stayed at James Tymon Farmhouse with our two young kids and our big red and white setter. We all fell in love with the place. Kieran's welcome was warm and the cottage is immaculate and fully equipped. We ventured out for a couple of days to Lough Key forest park. On the other days, we were perfectly happy to walk around the land and come back to a roaring turf fire. I can't recommend James Tymon's highly enough. Exceptional in every way!

I am delighted you and your family had such a good stay at James Tymon cottage. It was a real pleasure meeting you all.
The walks through the land and by the river are a particular favourite of most guests. Forest park in Boyle is a real gem with its beautiful lake, lots of walks a nice cafe and only a few miles from the cottage.
Thank you for your very positive review and I hope to see you all back at the cottage in the not too distant future.
