Delightful stay at the Thatched cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage which met all our expectations and more.

The host Martin was very welcoming and helpful with much local knowledge.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with all modern conveniences.

The location was very central for travelling many of the main sights were within 1 hour drive of the cottage.

If you are looking for great a place to stay stop looking you have found it !

We really enjoyed our time with so many places to see only wish we could have stayed longer but hope to make a return visit next year.

The cottage was very comfortable , clean , with all modern comforts but keeping true to its old world style which we loved.

Martin was very accommodating and helpful during our stay.

We will definitely return .in the future.

Fleming Island, Florida

Wonderful stay in the country!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in Ireland and the cottage provided a great central location to visit nearby towns and attractions. We traveled to Dingle, Galway, Cork, Killarney, Limerick, and several of the smaller towns in the area. We met new friends at the pub and enjoyed the cottage as a home base. Martin was very responsive for any questions we had, and even prepared a delicious pizza for our arrival as well as stocking up some snacks and drinks! We highly recommend this property.

Central location, great value.

  • 4 of 5

Property was is a central location for our needs to see as much of Ireland as we could in the time we were there. A little tough to find at first, but once we keyed it into maps, we were set. Had a nice pie given to us upon arrival which was nice. Also, it was nice to have all of the essential breakfast foods there when arriving.

We wanted traditional and got it in spades!

  • 4 of 5

The hosts were very accommodating. Homemade soup and sandwiches were there when we arrived. The location is exceptional for touring around all of the sites in the southwest of Ireland. The ring of Kerry, Dingle Penninsula, Rock of Cashel, Adare are that are all within driving distance. Plenty of parking, and plenty of room in the cottage. A very good, quiet location to see the sights and relax in the evening.
