Duncan and Rhona were the perfect hosts. Completely non intrusive, unless requested. Beautiful rooms and facilities. Everything one needed was there; An ideal area for someone looking for a peaceful retreat. Dublin 40 minutes. Dun A Ri forest park close by. Belfast 50 mins. Dundalk 15 mins. Don't take my word for it, try it for yourself.

We stayed here for my grandmothers funeral who was a neighbour of the owners. On arrival the heating was on, timber next to the stove, we were blown away by how lovely the cottage is and decorated to the highest standards. There was a few bottles of ale left there for us which my brother really enjoyed. We didn't even...

We travelled around Ireland and stayed in a few "self catering cottages" but NONE could come close to this place! Fantastically renovated with many upgrades, it still retains its country charm. Quiet and peaceful, it is wonderful to see the cows at the fence in the morning and the area provides for a safe and picturesque area to have great...

Darley Cottage really is a hidden gem set in the middle of beautiful, peaceful countryside not far from many of our relatives. We feel that the photos do not do justice to this gorgeous cottage, it is much bigger, brighter, cleaner and fresher than it looks online. The cottage has so much to offer, a lot of which is mentioned...

Spent a long weekend at the cottage while competing in the Irish Open Indoor Archery Championships. Lovely accommodation, with everything you could need. Really enjoyed lighting the fire and playing cards in the cosy surroundings. Duncan was really helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.

We had to travel to Ireland at short notice for a family emergency and only needed a two night stay.

DARLEY COTTAGE A quick trip to Ireland took us to the town of Carrickmacross where our gg grandmother was born in 1835. Apart from being the friendliest town we visited in our six weeks in the UK & Ireland, it also provided nearby Darley Cottage which has set new parameters for B&B’s. It is said ‘if you want something done,...
