We booked decoy cottages as a large group, 3 families consisting of 6 adults and 6 kids! The barn was excellent, clean, beautiful and lots of entertainment for the kids with the den and outdoor play area. A great holiday from start to finish!

Our trip was lovely, Paula was very friendly and assisted us whenever we needed her. We decided not to hire a car, but the bus stop was far to walk, but the accomodation had everything we needed. I would definately recommend the accomodation to anyone intending to visit Ireland, the beds were comfy, and the sound doesnt really travel throughout...

We had a wonderful 4 night stay here. Very impressed with the high standard of the accommodation and although self catering, cottage comes equipped with washing up and laundry products, soaps, kitchen towels, toilet rolls and cooking oils and spices. This makes such a difference to not have to bring all these extras with you! There are even reusable shopping...

I'm always a bit anxious about choosing a place like this especially as I was arranging it for my whole family and it turned out just perfect. We stayed in the Forge for 5 nights and it was like home from home. The age group of the 7 people ranged from 1 year to 60 and everyone had only good...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Decoy Country Cottages in the 'Coach House' and were attending a family wedding in nearby Ballymagarvey. We received a warm welcome from Paula and couldn't believe how much thought had gone into the cottage. The cottage was warm, spotlessly clean and really well equipped including a welcome basket full of...

Just back from a wonderful stay in the "HenHouse" with my Husband and our 3 year old. This house is absolutely gorgeous. I was so impressed with all of the eco friendly products used throughout the house. The jacuzzi bath and Voya Organic Products gave a 5 star feeling about the place. "The Den" has a great selection of toys...

The cottages are set in a beautiful location and the layout round the courtyard is nice. The cottage we stayed in was quite dim and was ready for a facelift. The TV was old and small and we could have done with additional towels. When I contacted the owner with feedback after our stay they said these were available but...

We stayed at the cottages in September 2016 for our twins first birthday. The cottages have everything you need for a comfortable stay, it really is a home away from home. Travelling with two one year old babies can be stressful but it helped that all the baby gear was provided and there were toys and a small playground to...

Very warm reception by the owner. The accomodation is very spacious and very well equipped with many hidden "surprises" - anything you could think of to make a stay luxurious! I especially appreciate the many small thoughtful details, which we found here again (this was our third stay).
