Walks on the beach close by, with your own private sunny enclosures for relaxation make this a great place to get away from it all, yet not far from Waterford City and picturesque Dunmore E. Thank you Jean and Brendan for graciously welcoming us with wine and supplies that made settling in pleasant and unhurried.

The lane to the cottage is as described and made for an adventure each time we drove it. For the faint of heart, this might not be your best bet. However, for those more confident, taking your time made for a sure success in traversing this narrow lane. Once at the cottage, it is just as described. Charming with all the conveniences of home. Thank you Bridie for the wonderful brown bread and jam and the fresh flowers from your gardens. Ben and Bridie, the owners, are so very nice and helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. We took wonderful day trips, had a nice fire in the wood stove at night, slept like babies, and wished we would never have to leave this delightful part of the world! We even used the washer and dryer without difficulty. If you are looking for Irish charm in a good location, you have found it!
