We had a great time in Ireland. We stayed for a week in The Pump House which had everything we needed. We were greeted warmly every time we returned to the cottage by two gorgeous dogs, a cat, and sometimes a donkey. It was great fun! The cottage was warm and cosy. It would not really have been suitable for more than two people though. The loft sofa bed is kind of difficult to access for anyone who doesn't like ladders and heights. But it if is just for two people it is a good choice if you want to be in the Kildare area. We visited Clonmel, Cashel, Waterford, Kilkenny, Wicklow Mountains, Maynooth and Dublin while we were there. The roads and driving in Ireland are great, and being fairly central meant we could maximise our time visiting places. Athy has a useful mix of shops and if it is raining, nearby Carlow has two great multiscreen cinemas.
My family and I had an excellent stay. The house is as nice a holiday home as we have ever stayed in. Its been very carefully restored and looks fantastic both outside and inside. The kitchen is a great size and well kitted out with everything that you would need. The living room area is spacious and very comfortable, with the added bonus of a games area with a pool table (which the kids loved). Each of the bedrooms is a good size, with very comfortable mattresses - we all slept well. Its situated in its own gated area with a picnic table outside the door, and a large grass area which was great for the kids playing outside, safely. A brilliant house which we would love to return to. Many thanks for having us.
