Fabulous holiday, lovely hosts, great cottage, amid the cows. A find for us.

5 of 5
An adventure from the start, how beautiful is this area! Loved the cows, and the countryside. Very quiet - just what we like. The hosts are most welcoming and helpful. We had a great week exploring the area.

Unique and Relaxing

4 of 5
Rincolisky Tower sits in the most amazing part of Ireland. "God's Country" as one local described it. The castle was as expected. It's old, very old, so no surprises on any aspect of the tower itself. Yes, there will be damp on the walls, yes, it will get cool at night, yes you will hear strange noises creaking and groaning from the walls and floorboards but once you crank up the fires, fill your belly full of food and drink it's a wonderful place to be. Definitely a great spot to share with a bunch of friends or family for a unique and different experience. The surrounding area and small towns to explore is ideal. Aside from the obvious and expected challenges that come with living in a 500yr-old tower castle, what a great place to stay. The owners have done a reasonably good job renovating and I am sure it suits their personal requirements however as a holiday rental I think there needs to be more practical amenities and ongoing maintenance in a place this old to ensure quality and value for $. The upper conservatory is great, all glass windows and a view for miles. Because of the exposure to the sun and subsequent cold (through the glass-no blinds) a number of the floorboards are warped and buckled, some with nails popping out which is pretty dangerous when you're walking around in socks or bear feet. For some strange reason the outdoor area on the rooftop wasn't leveled with a gradient for run-off so water pools in this area after it has rained, made worse by the fact that the roof of the conservatory has no gutters so rain run's straight off the roof and into the patio area. A very strange renovation choice to not include gutters. Maybe it's a heritage thing? The showerhead was broken so unless you're a 3ft leprechaun or can squat for long periods of time showers were a hassle but not as much as the deadly polished slate floor of the bathroom. The slate looks good on the walls but makes absolutely no sense to have on the floor of a wet area. With just a drop of water it was as dangerous as black ice. I took a hectic spill simply stepping from the shower to grab my towel. Not enjoyable at all so tread carefully. The tower has a great kitchen/dining area on the ground floor. There's a killer dining table that seats 12, at least. There is an Arga Oven which looks great in the kitchen but unless you have one at home, or know how to use one it is basically of no real use. All up a good stay but could use upgrades/maintenance as a holiday rental.
