                                                                                                I visited the cottage with my fiancé for 4 days. We had the most fantastic and relaxing time. The cottage is close to the main house but it has a private back garden and Sue and Gary are so lovely and welcoming without being imposing. We felt like we had the whole farm to ourselves. The weather was gorgeous when we were down. But I would recommend the cottage for summer or winter. It's at the end of the road so there are no neighbours. Plenty opportunity for hiking and walks. The town is a good walk away. Not too far if you have the time and enjoy walking. We felt like we were in a world of our own which was exactly what we were looking for. The drive to Killarney from the cottage is absolutely beautiful and easily accesssible. The best thing about the cottage is that it has everything you need. From things as simple as salt, pepper and toilet paper to baking trays and delicious farm fresh eggs. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be visiting again.
