We satyed with Francis and Niamh in June for about a week and we had a wonderful time. They are a lovely family and could not have made us feel more welcome. We have a big family and the larger cottage was more than sufficient for our needs and for our large Newfoundland, Sarah. The kids loved going to see...

We really enjoyed the accommodation at Croan Cottages. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings with plenty of animals to keep our grandson entertained. Francis and Naimh could not have been netter hosts. Best tasting tomatoes eve! We would all thoroughly recommend Croan Cottages for your holiday in Ireland.

This was our second visit to Croan with our son and dog. Really enjoyable time was had by all. The M9 makes travelling around Kilkenny very accesible. We found the cottage to be very well situated for access to kilkenny or down to Waterford. The cottages themselves were very clean and well equipped with all the amenities you could need....

This was my third visit to Croan Cottages, along with husband, two kids and dog. The opening of the new M9 makes it even easier to get there from Dublin - just over an hour from Newlands Cross. We visited later in the year last time, but this year, the cherry blossoms were in full bloom while we were there...

We traveled from the US with a group of 11 (including 6 children), staying in two of the cottages. The cottages were the perfect base for exploring the southest part of the country. The children loved being able to run around and explore. And we all loved meeting the farm animals. Frances and Niahm are the best of hosts. When...

We are glad that you liked the location and ambience of Croan Cottages but we are obviously disappointed to read your negative comments. As we have explained to you, all of the cottages are continually repaired and serviced as you would have seen during your stay when the TV broke in your cottage and we immediately replaced it with a...

We had the pleasure of staying at Croan for 7 nights. We essentially had the place to ourselves, and the owners were fabulous. They were the kind of people that we felt like we had known a long time after just one conversation. The farm is beautiful, and we slept well. I saw other reviews mentioned the utility cost at...

We recently traveled as a group of eight (ages 15-43) to County Killkenny, Ireland and had the pleasure of spending seven days at Croan Cottages. We recently returned to New York and are already missing the Croan Cottages as much as beautiful Ireland. Being from a very eco-driven community, we very much appreciated the owners' commitment to environmentally friendly practices....

We stayed at Croan Cottages for 3 nights at the beginning of a two-week trip to Ireland in early March. There were 5 of us, including 2 teens and my 75-yo mom. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and make ourselves at home. The cottage was simply decorated, clean and comfortable. Francis was a great host,...
