Although we are both locals from cork we really enjoyed our weekend break in garrison house. Loved having the whole fort to ourselves (highlight was seeing the locked gate from the inside!) and house itself was very well equipped and so central to everything. Incredibly quiet too which I didn’t expect , those fort walls must be VERY thick ! Would definitely recommend.
Not our first visit to the house, but it never fails to disappoint. Couched in the greenest countryside with a very safe distance from the road, our three generations had a superb week. The house is clean and well appointed, the kitchen is excellently equipped for self-catering, there are numerous really beautiful entertaining space and points of interests around the house. We had lots of sun during the week, with a sun terrace at the back of the house and seats in the front to enjoy the evening sun. The house is superbly located, with numerous tourist sites from the Burren perfumery, to v...more
Fabulous stay in the most beautiful location. Houses were lovely. Recommend going out to the wall of the lighthouse around midnight in the pitch black and watch the beams from the lighthouse hit the Wild Atlantic....once in a lifetime experience
We were lucky that we could sit outside in fine weather. The location and the sunsets were just great. We were fortunate to meet a former resident who told us about life there and that made it extra special.
We booked this as the start of a summer driving trip down into the west of Ireland. Driving up to the lighthouse is an experience in itself. The cottages are located right next to the lighthouse but the light is not too bright on the cottage side when the lamp is on. Schooner was a wonderful place to stay with 2 large bedrooms, a very spacious bathroom with tub and a separate shower room, a comfortable living room with fireplace (with a store of fuel to hand - even though it was summer and the house was well heated, we still lit the fire as it was so cozy), a long kitchen (the view is incredib...more
This a charming cottage for two with a fabulous and beautifully kept garden. It has everything two people might need and is in a quiet and secluded location though only 2 km from Donegal town with all its shops and restaurants. We would strongly recommend it to other couples looking for a quiet and attractive self catering location.
The landmark house is set up as a townhouse with two bedrooms, a bath, full kitchen and living area. Central location close to City Center of Cork. We loved our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Schoolhouse at Annaghmore. The property is sympathetically restored and is full of beautiful little decorative touches. Sarah the manager was really friendly and knowledgeable about the property. The house was really cosy and comfortable and was perfectly located to explore the Sligo area. The kitchen is really well equipped and the open fire made the living room really cosy. The garden is beautiful and the house is in a quiet and peaceful area, making it the perfect place to relax and unwind.
This little gate lodge is perfect for a quiet weekend away. Located in a beautiful region very close to Cappoquin and Lismore it is a great starting point to explore the area. The house itself was cozy, everything in it was perfect, clean and just right for a couple (also dog friendly which was an added bonus). Our host was lovely and very welcoming. It’s a short drive to Lismore / Dungarvan or a short walk to Cappoquin. I would highly recommend this lodge. There are plenty of places to walk and relax in the area. Well done on the restoration of the gate lodge !!
We stayed at Galley Head for 4 nights and were welcomed by Gail on arrival, Gail was a great help with things to do, places to go and where to get supplies for our stay. The house was very comfortable and clean and had all we needed for our stay, with transport Clonakilty isn't far away as are beaches and other accessible places of interest. There are lots of wee pubs and places to eat and places to go explore along the way. We enjoyed staying at the house very much with a chance to take in the peace and quiet and to get away from all the usual distractions. Hope to come back sometime.
This was our second time staying with our two young teenagers in the Merrion Mews house. The house is ideally located for a city break for taking in the cultural and landmark highlights of Dublin. The house itself is incredibly peaceful, quiet and makes you feel very safely nestled in a little oasis of calm in the middle of everything. The house is incredibly comfortable, a real home away from home, beds and bathrooms are of a very high standard. The kitchen is extremely well equipped , everything works and is uncomplicated. Great for a family with two kids who all need their own space and l...more
Fabulous experience that I would recommend to anyone. We all loved the peace and the view from each single room of the lighthouse.
If you want to get away from it all then Knocknalosset house is for you. We were transported back in time and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Set in tranquil countryside with only the sound of the birds, it was exactly what we needed. We were sad to leave and will definitely be back.
A lovely property in a lovely location - you feel out of the city but have the luxury of nice restaurants a cab drive away. This was my second visit and I thought the property was a little worn this time.
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.
We loved staying at Loop Head. It is in a wonderful location surrounded by spectacular cliffs and if you are lucky with the weather (we were!) you are treated to magnificent sunsets over the water. The building itself is a dream - the former lightkeepers’ home with several cosy rooms to sit in and great views from the windows. You can take a guided tour of the lighthouse itself which is fascinating and well worth doing. Mary the manager met us to hand over the keys. She was full of helpful information and keeps the house beautifully. There is a bird colony a short walk away along the cliffs - ...more
Me and my husband really enjoyed our stay in a beautiful miniature castle at Anne's Grove estate. The building is very nicely preserved, cozy and very neat. Our wonderful host Theresa was very helpful and friendly. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Really lovely house that has been renovated beautifully. The views from every room in the house are amazing and the famine walls surrounding the house are truly a reminder of Irish history. Our family included three teenage children who loved their stay in Termon, even with its isolated location and no TV! The local pub is lovely for a drink and all the people friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone who appreciate the nature and the opportunity to get away from it all.
Just had second break at this cottage. Fantastic base for visiting family and Main Street. The property and garden have been maintained really well thanks to Grace and Lorraine. Even though this is a period property it had all the facilities you need to be comfortable. I will be visiting again in the future.
When I arrived at the house I was spoke to Grace who was friendly and showed me around the house was spotless and lovely.
