The cottages are old style with a modern twist, (think ceiling beams and WiFi). Located on an organic farm, which you can visit, there is lots of space. It's 2km to beach & it’s a 5 minute walk both to the pub that does great food & the local shop

The space

This is a peaceful, rural, location, near the beach yet just on the edge of the village. There are 3 detached cottages on one spacious site - on our organic working farm. Solid Oregan pine floors and pitch pine beams frame the spacious kitchen / living / dining area. A utility room, double bedroom & large bathroom with both bath and wet room style shower complete the downstairs accommodation. Two twin rooms and a shower room are located upstairs with quilts and cushions handmade by Helen, the owner.
The kitchen is fully kitted out and there is a chest freezer separate from the fridge.
WiFi, full laundry facilities and lots of space make this a pleasant home from home. We are child friendly, providing cots, high chairs or stair gates as needed, there are games and books indoors with lots of space and some toys outdoors. A goal, a boat and a chicken coup are some of the unusual additions to the lawn.

Guest access

You have your own back garden, and there is a large garden in the front, which is shared with the other 2 cottages on the site. Patio furniture, a goal & boat on the lawn and a chicken run make for a varied and relaxed space outside. The houses are accessed from the shared gateway via tarmac roadways.

Interaction with guests

The owners, John & Helen, live right across the road from the cottages. We are happy to help with any queries you may have during your stay.
We provide afternoon tea for you on arrival.
John will happily give you a tour of the farm, you can visit the cows & calves, feed the donkeys and collect eggs.

Other things to note

There is a small supermarket, deli plus Post Office for basic groceries 300m away, another small supermarket in the next village (4km away) and lots of supermarkets in Wexford, 17km away. Tesco deliver for a small charge.

We stayed as a group of couples in Kilmore Cottage. The cottage is big, clean and very well equipped. There is ample parking for more than one car, and a large grass area with lots of toys to play with if you have children. Although the goal posts were used quite a lot by our adult group! Access to the cottage was easy, and John was on hand if anything was needed. There is a shop a few minutes walk away, and also Mary Barrys pub which is definitely worth a visit. Kilmore Quay is a 10 minute drive away. A lovely few days in the Irish countryside!

Our stay was exactly what we had hoped for. We visited in August with our two young sons (5 and 2) for 9 nights. The property was just what we were looking for, plenty of space for us all (and even room for grandparents to visit for a few nights), and totally safe. When we arrived John met us promptly and helped us set up the stair gates as we wanted them. The house is on a piece of land with two other holiday homes, and the gate to the communal garden can easily be closed, leaving a wide safe space for the children to run around. They befriended children staying in a neighbouring house and played for hours with the garden toys provided. The house is excellently equipped with all the self catering equipment you could need. We used to drive into Kilmore Quay (6 mins by car) most mornings and buy fish fresh from the ocean, and cook it up ourselves. There were plenty of lovely restaurants within driving distance as well. The one restaurant within walking distance is spectacular, Mary Barry's. We went there for a night time meal one night, when my parents babysat - we strolled up in under ten mins using the high-vis vests supplied in the house. We also took the kids there for lunch twice, they were so delighted with the two bouncy castles out the back. The area is quiet and peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break. That said, you can be in Rosslare or Wexford town in twenty minutes. The house itself is a charming cottage, equally enjoyable sitting on the patio in the sun or sitting cosied up on the couch by the stove listening to the rain on the shutters. The hosts were great, John has the patience of a saint answering all my kids questions, and taking them on a tour of the farm. Their highlight was collecting eggs laid not 20 seconds previously and taking them home for lunch. We'd love to come back, even in ten days we've left so much undone that I think a return trip will be necessary!

Spent 3 wonderful nights in kilmore. John and Helen were fantastic hosts and the highlight for the kids was the tour of the farm. The house was exceptional for location and cleanliness. Well equipped for all needs. Thank you so much for a great break.

I'm married with 2 teenage children. I live with my husband and kids on our organic farm and we run 3 self catering holiday homes there. I'm also a coporate finance advisor and work virtually a lot of the time, so I'm never too far from a WiFi zone. I like food, wine, theatre a…
