We haven't got a bad word to say about the place. It was an absolutely beautiful location, very well placed for exploring the south east of Ireland. Even Dublin wasn't a million miles away, easily reachable in an hour and a half. The cottage itself was so lovely. Pictures on this site and others do not do it justice. The interior is beautiful, kitchen and living area is lovely and much more spacious than we expected from the pictures. Upstairs sitting area has beautiful views of the fields and valley. We really enjoyed having the fire on in the evenings also. Everything we needed was there in one shape or form, from washing machine and dishwasher, to wellies that were available to borrow, to kitchen utensils and basic supplies. All of the cats were adorable, (especially Mario, one of the friendliest cats we have ever met!) as were the donkeys who we enjoyed visiting every day and feeding a carrot or two! Ciaran and Dierdre were excellent hosts, very welcoming and more than happy to advise on the area or point in the right direction on things to do. Scones were a lovely touch and we thoroughly enjoyed them on the first day. Thank you so much! Overall a 10/10 stay in a beautiful cottage- we will highly recommend to all our friends and family and will be hopefully returning in the future!

The house itself is fabulous. Very unique and quirky. It was always lovely and warm. There is also a lovely log burner to use as you please. The shower pressure is fab as others have said. Pete was so accommodating and had a real warmth with him. We had everything that we needed and the house was such a great base for exploring Wicklow, which is a stunning part of Ireland. Thank you Pete for a wonderful stay&we hope to see you again in the future!
