Amazing country apartment

  • 5 of 5

David & Maria provide a lovely & charming apartment, secluded from the hustle & bustle of city life - while conveniently located to restaurants, touring attractions & other amenities. They are gracious & their welcome is warm & inviting - the view from the living room is simply gorgeous! We would visit again on our next trip to Ireland and would consider staying longer than the 4 nights of our last stay. We have already posted photos on FaceBook & friends have inquired about booking their holiday with the Keechs.......

A LOT TO BE DESIRED

  • 2 of 5

IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE THAT IS VERY OUTDATED WITH CHEAP FURNITURE, A WI-FI THAT ONLY WORKS IF YOU SIT IN CORNER OF THE ROOM AND YOU PAY EXTRA FOR THE HEATING, THEN THIS IS THE UNIT FOR YOU. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. THE AD MAKES IT SOUND AND LOOKS NICE BUT YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED. CERTAINLY NOT WORTH THE MONEY. UNIT NOT CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

Great Country Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in David and Maria's apartment. They were very welcoming and extremely helpful when we needed advice and use of a phone. The countryside is beautiful and the location is very convenient for touring sites like Kilkenny, Waterford, and Cashel. The apartment was very comfortable. Great spot from which to enjoy the Irish countryside!

A lovely place in the countryside!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Irish countryside! David and Maria were lovely when we need advice and some help, they were right there. Their apt. was cute-roomy for 3 people, lots of light and gardens all around and goats in the back. We walked to the store to get simple groceries, quaint town. We loved the small village feel! It was hard to get a wifi connection from there, maybe it's the location.

Rustic. Away from it all with lovely views of the country.

  • 2 of 5

David and Maria are lovely people. They made us feel very welcome. However, for a family of four the space was quite small. The property is only the annex to the right of the picture. We needed wifi for a project at home and the wifi connection was poor and only available in one corner of the living area.

Beautiful place, comfortable, quiet, great views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. David was extremely welcoming and helpful. The property is truly beautiful and very well kept. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had every convenience, and the 2nd floor (1st floor for Irish and Brits) sitting room was a gorgeous and extremely pleasant place to sit and enjoy the sunset views after a long day of exploring Kilkenny and its surroundings. While in a tiny village, it is in easy proximity to Waterford, Kilkenny City, Glendalough, and many other beautiful and interesting sites. I highly recommend the White House as a wonderful vacation stay.
