“Lovely comfortable cottage”

The cottage is fully equipped and very comfortably furnished. We could not resist lighting the fire. The smell of peat is wonderful. Mojo the family dog was a great favourite and spent a lot of time on our doorstep. Hosts Carol and Neil are very friendly and welcoming. Very happy with our stay.

“FANTABULOUS”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

If you follow the directions to the house... you will find it... It's out in the country which is what we wanted... The house itself is fantastic... such sweet people and they live right there so if you need help, advice or directions... they had firewood cut so that we could have a cozy evening... It was our favorite place in our whole visit to Ireland.

“Peaceful cozy setting”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Super clean, modern inside with beautiful old stone detailing outside. Very picturesque.
A bit outside city, but so calm and quiet. Kitchen is dream to work in or places to eat in town.
If you are a couple and steps are an issue the bedroom on main floor would work well for you.
We had a cozy fire last night and looked at the stars. Carol and Neil are very helpful in places to go, get around, even loaned us milk.

“Peaceful Irish Countryside”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We recently made our first trip to Europe and wanted a house in the Irish countryside instead of a hotel. We were extremely pleased with accommodations. We flew to Dublin and rented a car. The further we got from Dublin, the more it felt like we were traveling back in time. A few minutes from the village of Thomastown we arrived at our house. The owners and their awesome dog met us in the driveway and showed us around the property. The house was large, clean, and comfortable. It had a large kitchen with a nice table, spacious living room with a flat screen tv and wood burning stove, and a bathroom and bedroom on the bottom floor. The upstairs had a big bedroom and bathroom with a large tub. When we woke up our first morning, we went for a walk down the rural road. Friendly people stopped and said hi and the neighbor's dog trotted beside us. In the evening when we returned to the house we cooked supper and started a fire in the wood burning stove.

Thomastown was a short drive away and had a grocery store, coffee shop, post office, and several restaurants. Kilkenny was less than an hour away with lots of sites and shopping. For a rainy day, make the 30 minute drive up to the Reptile Zoo.

What I liked best about this place was that after pushing it during the day and castle hopping and putting miles on the rental car, we could come home and kick off our shoes and relax. There was enough room for the four of us to spread out and unwind. The owners were some of the nicest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. We would definitely stay here again.
