“Fantastic farmhouse”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Just back from a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage. Kieran provided us with everything we needed, the cottage has been lovingly restored by Kieran and the surrounding area is really well looked after so ideal for families looking for space and fresh air.

This is by far the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in by a long long distance.

It was a pleasure having you and your family stay at the cottage and it is very pleasing to know that it had all you needed for your holiday.Thank you for your very welcome endorsement of the cottage as suitable for families. It certainly has the space with 30 acres of land on which to stretch the legs. I certainly look forward to meeting you all again when next you come.
Best wishes until then,
Kieran.

“A treat for me the hubby and our dog”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We decided to spend a week in Ireland at the end of August to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house was stunning with so much character and lots of original features. Sadly for us the weather was not great but it was so lovely and cosy making peat fires and enjoying the cottage and the Irish hospitality. The welcome tray on our arrival with apple pie and bottle of wine and the provisions in the fridge were also very much appreciated.
I have to say the beds were super comfy and so high it was like sleeping in bunk beds and quite an experience. the only little niggle for us was the fishing, at the back of the house is a very narrow part of the river not really suitable for serious angling, my husband is a keen angler and we normally book a holiday cottages in Ireland with Lake fishing on site, other than this we found it fantastic and had a very nice holiday . If you have want a nice meal we loved the Oarsman in carsick on Shannon food was fantastic .

I'm really pleased the cottage met your expectations especially as it was an important anniversary. I'ts important to me that the cottage and farm buildings retain their original character.You were a little unlucky with the weather but it gave you the excuse to have a few turf fires in the stove and open fire. The beds are certainly higher than modern beds but thats because as you know the bed frames are original to the cottage.Thank you both for taking the time to write such a positive review of the cottage and perhaps one day you may return and if you do you will certainly receive a very warm welcome.

A lovely place to stay, both in the cottage & its surroundings. Kieran is a great host & the cottage has everything you could need for a comfortable & enjoyable visit. We were very lucky to have had great weather & could sit outside & eat - would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable home from home.

Many thanks Kieran

it was a real pleasure having you both stay at the cottage and to know that you enjoyed the house and its grounds is very satisfying. Eating outside on the grounds or down by the river is very enjoyable but particularly as you say this summer and autumn when the weather has been so settled.
I look forward to having you both back again at James Tymon cottage some time in the future. Thank you for taking the time to write your kind review.

“excellent cottage and great central location”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed at this cottage for two weeks in July, very clean and comfortable, has everything you could need from a well equipped kitchen to very comfortable beds, the grounds around the cottage have been well laid out in walks and there is a walk along the river which we enjoyed very much, we also watched hares and foxes in the fields along the river but you need to be very quiet. A great place with a very friendly owner.

I am delighted you took the time and effort to write such a thoughtful review of my cottage. Your comments about the house and its facilities are much appreciated. The walks around the farm especially along by the river are relaxing and as you found one can happen upon wildlife if you are watchful and what a joy that is. I hope to see you and the family back again at James Tymon cottage sometime in the future. All the best till then.
