If you want to take a trip to Ireland and relax and/or tour the country this is the place to rent . The host here are wonderful and the house had everything you could ask for. Located on a working dairy farm the house and grounds are truly relaxing . If you want to explore, most of Ireland is reachable without much effort by car. If your staying put the town of Nenagh has some great butcher shops and a fish monger to get great fresh ingredients for dinner. Truly a 4 star rental.
My mom, sister, and I spent two weeks at Gort na gCapall and had an AWESOME vacation! Jeanette and Stephen were amazing hosts! Their luxury cottage had everything we needed! We felt at home and we had plenty of room to spread out. Jeanette gave us many suggestions of the things to do in the area that we loved! She was just a text away with answers to our questions. Stephen was kind enough to show us around their dairy farm where we watched milking at the milking parlour and it was great to see the pen of calves. Everywhere we went the locals knew us and referred to us as the "new girls" at the Seymour house! We booked their cottage a year and a half before our vacation based on the beautiful pictures and Jeanette's great communication. The cottage was even better that we expected! It was centrally located for our day trips to Kilkenny, Cliffs of Moher, Rock of Cashel, Adare, Ballina, Galway, Kildare. Portumna, Lough Derg, and the many castles. We would not hesitate to come back because we were treated like family! Thank you for opening your amazing home to our family!
Great house, really good facilities and close to Nenagh and Lough Derg. Plenty of space and really comfortable.
We booked Gort na Gcapall for Christmas as we needed a house that would accommodate a family group of six in four bedrooms with two bathrooms at least. This house was ideal.
On the ground floor there were three bedrooms. One double ensuite. One double and one twin with a large shared bathroom and upstairs a large double ensuite.
The house was well equipped with everything you needed to cater for up to eight people at Christmas. Plenty of pots,pans,crockery etc.
When we arrived we were delighted to find a cosy turf fire to greet us and Jeanette had the house beautifully decorated complete with a Christmas tree.
We had no problems with the Internet connection and used Chromecast to watch movies.
The downstairs sitting room had Saorview and the massive upstairs lounge had all free view channels.
There was also a TV in the games room.
Gort na Gcapall is a beautiful and comfortable house close to all the amenities of Nenagh but in a quiet rural setting. Lough Derg is on your doorstep with all of its attractions. There are numerous walks in the area and lots of water sports facilities.
A drive around the lakeshore will bring you to lots of charming villages. Dromineer, Garrykennedy, Terryglass, Killaloe etc.
There are numerous good places to eat. Larkings in Garrykennedy being a favourite, and Paddy's and the Derg Inn in Terryglass.
We can thoroughly recommend Gort na Gcapall .
Stayed here as a base for visiting family not far from here. The cottage is just stunning, beautifully decorated, spacious, immaculately clean. The owner Jeanette has equipped the place so well, there were even plenty of books and dvd's in the upstairs lounge - great for a lazy afternoons - fleecy blankets too to keep you cozy on the huge sofa!! Jeanette has gone to the trouble of providing a really helpful folder on tips and guides to the local area, including places to eat, we went to a few places based on this advice and we weren't disappointed. Jeanette the owner is really helpful, came to check on us during our stay, this was a really lovely touch, not too intrusive either. Wi fi provided is really great, never had any issues with this, even with several devices being used.
I would 100 per cent recommend anyone to stay here, you won't be disappointed. I will definitely return !
