I would have liked to have had access to more Delph to reduce the number of dishwasher uses during our stay particularly from an eco and water usage point of view. Also a packet of new dishclothes would be nice.
Beautiful house in the heart of the center but sooooo quiet. Very clean with all mod cons (bar mugs for tea - were Irish!) . beds very comfy. Location is fab and to be in a fort even better. Can seem pricey if its only 2 people but i cant begrudge it as it was a great experience. Did not miss the TV one bit as radio was excellent.
Lovely cottage and sympathetically restored by ILT , great to have thatch cottage on their books close to mitchelstown by car (approximately 15 minutes). Lovely stove , the only thing is not great phone signal most of the time.
Fabulous time had in galley head celebrating friends birthday. Total isolation in amazing location. Bit of effort involved in getting keys- maybe secure lockbox a solution??
We had a great time at St. John’s Point. The accommodation has everything you could need and the views were amazing.
Had a lovely stay at the Schoolhouse. Warm and helpful welcome from the house manager, Sarah. Excellent facilities, very high standard of renovation. Kitchen really well equipped, fine bed linen and comfortable beds. Atmospheric, warm, very quite, perfect. Out in the country but only 15 minutes by car into the centre of Sligo. If you have a mobile wifi router with you there is an excellent reception and private parking is very good. For me the schoolhouse is within walking distance to my grandmother's old family home so being there felt like home.
The most wonderful place to stay if you want to live within a fort in the centre of Cork city. The house has been sympathetically restored and is just full of charm. There’s a sensible mix of period furniture with enough modern conveniences to make a stay really comfortable. Huge support from the Trust staff to help with anything you could need. Now on our list of top stays ever, absolutely one to remember. Looking forward to a return visit
Very comfortable lodge which is very well equipped. Extremely cosy with underfloor heating and the stove.
We keep coming back to St Johns. We’ve had at least 6 trips here now and we love it. This is the perfect location to get away from the connected world as there is next to no mobile coverage and no tv. Great walks around the headland and up to the coral beach with stunning sunrises and sunsets against the majestic scenery. Bring books, food and wine and in the evening get the fire lit and the feet up. Switch your brain from digital to analogue mode and get back to doing and feeling real life.
Very pretty cottage, lovely outside space. Great location, within walking distance to Donegal town. Very close to the beach.
Everything was as expected. Clean, great location amineable management. Couldt ask for more. secure and withing great distance of everything
On arrival Gail showed us the lie of the land and filled us in on the history of the property and the Butler family. The weather was fantastic as were the views all day long . We brought coal as advised by Gail which made the evening all the more cosy with the warm glow of the fire. Apart from uncontrollable damp ( the origin of which can’t be detected ) the cottage was in immaculate condition and brought you back to the rare aul’ times. Meeting Gerald , who had been the head lighthouse keeper, was the icing on the cake, as his knowledge and detail to the lighthouses history was incredible. Al...more
This was our last place on our 16 day stay in Ireland and we were very pleased. Beautiful views. Amazing lighthouse. Host was great. Plenty of hot water when we figured out how to make sure it wasn't too hot. Even though the kitchen was on the top, we didn't mind because we barely went up there. We will stay again.
We had 4 wonderful days in Loop Head. The location surrounded by the sea cliffs is truly magical and the experience with our whole family there made it even better.
The location is perfect, with excellent restaurants a few minutes away in Celbridge or Leixlip. The property itself is lovely and you can open the side door directly into Castletown estate, which has lovely walks. It is so quiet at night, with no light pollution, allowing for a great night's sleep in a comfy bed.
The location of the Townhouse is excellent with amenities right on its doorstep. Great to experience an old house in the heart of the vibrant city.
Anne’s Grove is a fantastic property in a lovely setting. The town has all the basics that you need and the people are very friendly
Termon House is full of character and beautifully proportioned with stunning views in all directions. Having a beach on our doorstep, along with great roads for cycling and wonderful inlets for kayaking, meant that we barely left Mahery during our stay. We even met a seal at the end of a swim! The house was well stocked with everything we might need. It was great to be able to bring our dog too. Our host was very helpful and friendly. Our only regret was that our stay was too short.
Beautifully restored property located in magical surroundings. Turn right from the front door and you are in the village with all amenities or turn left to lose yourself in the grounds of the Castletown estate. It’s very special.
This I’m was my second time staying in the house and it was once again a wonderful experience. The house itself is incredibly cosy and a lovely place to spend time with family or friends, there is also a small outdoor area where you can eat together in addition to the lovely and well equipped kitchen. There are lots of books to read. The town itself is also full of activity- the Castletown house and gardens is of course the star of the show, but you should also go on a guided tour of the town (Celbridge Guided Tours) to ensure you learn about the wider history and see more of the historic si...more
