                                                  Shared amazing special family memories in Rathbrack House. Property itself was well maintained, beautifully clean and the owners were so friendly and helpful. We were a party of 15 from young to old and Rathbrack House catered very well for this. We all had individual space and yet lovely communal family areas to share. The adults and kids adored the pool area and down to floats and toys provided from the owners there was plenty of fun to be had. The kitchen was any chef's dream with more than adequate space and equipment to cook in! The grounds left everyone with a feeling of inner peace and the waterfall was lovely to gaze at from the pool area. Thanks for a lovely stay it was bliss.
