Hanora's Cottage is located in quite a remote location but thankfully our sat nav got us there without a problem and it was certainly worth seeking it out. The place oozes charm, character and genuine Irish hospitality. After checking in we guided to one of the many amazing hikes available in the Commeragh mountains and Nire valley. On our return...

We stayed for one night and got room 9, right above the kitchen. You could hear the staff working in the kitchen the whole time. The room itself was big, but did have some issues. One pillow case was dirty, the curtains have several stains on them and there were two spiders above the bed (one of them a huge...

We came here directly from the airport and Mary allowed us to check in early so we could get a nap in. Wonderful place to start from as we were able to eat dinner there and relax as we allow ourselves time to adjust. Breakfast was wonderful and we then headed out for the day with recommendations. Could easily have...
