We spent the night here on our way to Co Donegal in June of 2016. The hosts were very nice and we learned quite a bit about places to visit. In fact, Frank guided us to visit the castle where Braveheart was filmed. Would have never gone there without his assistance. Room was perfect as well as breakfast the next... More

Ash Cottage was easy to find and located in a suburban location that is quiet and private, but just minutes from town. After touring the area all day on no sleep (having just arrived on an overnight flight from the U.S.), we were happy to find a nice restaurant/pub in the hotel just at the end of the street, so...

It was very relaxing. The Owner made sure cereal was available for our early departure to the Airport in Dublin. Place was very clean. No trouble to locate. Would never guess it was close to busy roads.

We, a family with a pre-schooler, stayed here for two nights just before we flew out from Dublin, wish we could spend a couple more days here.
