We were so pleased to find a lovely, elegant old house of exactly the right size for our party of 12, including 4 small children. It took us a while to get used to the layout but the children loved the slightly unusual features with two staircases and the ability to go round, up & down and back - good for hide and seek! We liked the big dining room out the back by the door to the garden and Grainne allowed our son's family to bring their puppy, Sukie, which was kind of her. Sukie enjoyed the garden, as did the children and the rest of us kept an eye on them all to keep it safe and clean.
We went to the near-by playground several times, up the tow path on a bike, to Galway in the rain, to Birr castle in better weather (great place for adults and children), to Shannonbridge pub and fort, Tearaways soft play & animal farm, and various other adult locations. Travelling to Offaly and back by car was great as we saw several different counties, mountains and loughs,
Everything we needed was in the house and Grainne was a great hostess.
Excellent value for money, we are from the area but this cosy cottage suited our needs perfectly. It was warm, clean and tidy. We travelled with two small kids and found it spacious enough for them and all the paraphernalia that came with them. Chris is very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again.
