Guestbook comments from the owner
I was looking for the perfect Irish house for the Easter break. I wanted a traditional building with the subtle perks of modern living and outdoor space filled with stuff for the kids to do. The River House was an easy choice and totally lived up to my expectations. Even though it rained we managed to have a lovely time. The river, trampoline, swings and woods were explored by the kids when the rain stopped and when it started we played hide and seek and watched movies , played board games and cooked delicious meals with great food (esp fresh sea food) bought from an excellent supermarket (Fields).The house has lots to offer and I can't wait to go back.
