“A beautiful tranquil getaway”

From the minute you turn into the lane that leads to Clover Cabin you can tell this is going to be a special getaway and not your usual self catering experience. As soon as you enter the cabin you get a cosy inviting feeling and the view from every window is stunning. Fergal met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the cabin and told us everything we would need to know for our stay. We were also given homemade scones, milk and butter which went down a treat after the journey there. The cabin was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The woodland garden was beautiful and they had lots for kids to keep them amused. Although our daughter was to young to make use of the kids facilities she enjoyed the freedom of being able to play on the verandas and crawl and explore her way around the garden safely. There was a swing set activity frame and a tree house that had two levels with furniture which was aodrable. In the cabin there was plenty of tourist info for Kilkenny and surrounding area. As we were only there for the weekend we only left the cabin for a few hours to visit Kilkenny Castle as we were enjoying just relaxing at the cabin so much and didn't want to spend too much time away from it. We highly recommend this beautiful getaway which is made special by all the we extras that Fergal and Annette offer their guests. Can't wait to get our next break booked here.

This cabin is a real home from home.
Gorgeous inside the cabin with everything you need.
The gardens and grounds are fab.
Killkenny is only a 10min drive.
There was juice, scones and milk awaiting for us upon arrival and fergal and annette were the two most nicest people you could meet.
Candles everywhere, balcony from master bedroom, swing chair, tree house, it was just amazing!!
The worst part of our stay was leaving :(

“Very relaxing and pleasant break”

The cabin is kept very clean and has everything you need for a nice break. Lots of toys, board games, outside swings and slides for the kids, it even has a tree house! The back terrace is very nice to sit out and enjoy your lunch outside, while the kids have their own little table and plenty of things to play with.
The cabin stands on its own with big green areas surrounding it from every side. The owners were very pleasant and helpful recommending things to do in the area and things to go to see. It is only about 10-15 min drive away from Kilkenny town and only 2-5 mins drive from the nearest little towns.
We have absolutely fell in love with the cabin and will definitely return back in the years to come.
