A most relaxing place to stay and the cottage was so cosy. We loved the garden with the stream and loads of space for the kids to run around in the garden. We enjoyed some sunny weather sitting by the small stream, just relaxing. It felt very peaceful and a great place to get away from it all. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and we were met on arrival by a lovely lady who showed us how everything worked and answered questions we had about the local area. Kate, our host was very quick to respond and all communication was very smooth. Highly recommended as a base to explore this beautiful area or just go to chill out.

Lovely restored cottage. All the comforts of home and lots of open space for the kids. Highly recommended for family stays in a great location within a short drive of beaches, shops and places to eat. This part of Wexford has great history and lots of interesting places to visit.

Fab little cottage with a lovely fire in the snug sitting room. The outdoor seating area was perfect for morning coffees and the tyre swing was a lovely feature!

Kate was very attentive in helping us make sure we had detailed instructions, and also gave us nice tips on what to do. Her property feels private and secluded, but close to town. We absolutely loved the grounds and property. As my mother put it, it's "perfectly Irish." We'd recommend the Cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and unique place to stay.

We bought this cottage as a family holiday home when our daughter was born - we love spending time there and by renting it out as a holiday home it keeps it maintained in tip top condition ...also allows me to spoil it a little !!! We love getting to know some of our guests and feel very proud when guests enjoy their precious holiday time together there
