The refurbishment of these two houses is marvellous ... and I have seen the "before" photos! ...and the furnishing and equipping of the house was first class. It was a pleasure to work in the kitchen - we self-catered so well for Breakfasts & one Dinner. Previously unfamiliar with the area of Cork city, we were thrilled to discover the area. So close to everywhere on foot, as we always enjoy the English Market but we liked being "off the beaten track". and that we surely were. in Elizabeth Fort, with its 16th century origins. We explored the fairly new Nano Nagle Centre; how delightful thi...more
A wonderful house in the most beautiful part of Ireland. Big walks, surfing and pubs, all on your doorstep.
This is a well maintained light keepers cottage in a stunning location. The house was well restored, clean, warm and it has everything you need for a comfortable weekend.
Incredible location and a superb experience. Can’t say enough about it. Highly recommend. Gerard was extremely helpful and made it even more special.
We had a splendid time as usual and would certainly recommend it to our friends. As we have stayed in Railway Cottage on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed it immensely.
First visit to The School House and it definitely won’t be our last. From booking to departure the experience was first class. The welcome from Sarah was excellent, so full of useful information on the area, places to visit etc. Sarah also told us the history of the house, which I really appreciated. The house was spotless and had everything we needed and more. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to use. we cooked dinner every night and there was absolutely nothing we wanted for! The beds are super comfy with lovely fresh linen. The tiny details that Sarah has added, lovely hand...more
We enjoyed our stay. We appreciate Maro's help and flexibility. We would like to return in future. I dislike that I am unable to complete this review because it is not 100 characters long - that stipulation is not encouraging for any potential customers.
We loved our stay at SJ Clipper. The location is amazing with far reaching views to the Sligo mountains on one side and Slieve League and Killybegs to the other. The house is spacious, clean & comfortable. There are two bedrooms, one double & one twin. It has a well equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom with freestanding bath & separate shower room. There is no Wi-Fi and no TV, which is bliss. Booking and check-in is a breeze and Gerard the house manager is very friendly and informative. The Lighthouse is a 20 minute drive from the nearest village, down what is mostly a single ...more
We were delighted with our stay at Merrion Mews. The home is a dear, wonky but solid, beautifully renovated old coachman's cottage above stables. Sadly we didn't see the horses during our stay though. The beds were very comfortable, the facilities were excellent and it felt like our home. The location is ideal, right in the heart of Dublin within walking distance of Grafton Street shops, Trinity College, St Stephens Green, Temple Bar and dozens of galleries, cafés, restaurants, shops and of course pubs. Having said that it was whisper quiet, with no street noise at all. A perfect place to stay...more
We were looking forward to staying as it was late November and dark and nice to visit a city. We were not disappointed. A central spot, a lovely house, lots within walking distance. Very comfortable and warm
This property is beautifully located and really comfortable. Our landlady was also very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we really didn't like the Irish Trust booking process though, it contained many tedious steps and was not customer friendly. Website is badly designed and makes it difficult to check availability of properties.
I anticipated a bit climb to the kitchen and I was not wrong. Lots of steps aren't a bad thing though!! Miriam gave us a great welcome. The lighthouse was well laid out. Everything was provided and everything very clean. Even though the heat was on all the time, in the evening the living room was a little cold but it was to be expected as its open plan (there are doors into the bedrooms and bathrooms). But we were able to make ourselves cosy with all the things provided. The visitors book had 2 lovely drawings of the lighthouse from some kids who had stayed recently. Very sweet. Overall i...more
We took a short break in the middle of the summer in order to escape from Dublin and found exactly what we were looking for! This property is set in a most remote, quiet area. We had very fine weather and I loved sitting in the quiet surrounds of the garden most of all. The children enjoyed the playing in the courtyard and the lane running up the back of the house, and we enjoyed exploring the area around an abandoned school house up past the fields. There were two easy day trips we thoroughly enjoyed: the first was Erica's Fairy Forest in Cootehill, along with the surrounding walks. T...more
An excellent property, clean and cosy, warm and comfortable. The Lighthouse was open for tours and there was plenty to see on the peninsula too as the area is beautiful. Weather surprisingly mild and dry. Booking system helpful and easy to use. House manager friendly and competent!
Great location with park and trails . Hard to find at night. Directions are vague unless you arrive during the day., but locals are great for directions. Very modern inside. Not as authentic as other locations.
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.
Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay and I'd highly recommend it to others. It's a beautiful location, beautiful building full of character. So overall it was a great success and Theresa was very nice and friendly. However, I would recommend improvements in the amenities section of the website. The website lists many amenities a long distance away (like Fota). There's no mention of Doneraile which is beautiful and close by. Having asked in advance, Theresa got this info for me by the time I arrived. We stumbled across Mallow castle also, which was very nice and also isn't in the website a...more
This was our second time staying in Termon House. We loved it the first time and it didn’t disappoint second time around. The setting is simply stunning. There are gorgeous views from every window. The house itself has been freshly painted inside and out and there is lovely fresh new furniture in the lounge. Beds are very comfortable and the whole house is clean and cosy. Margorie, who looks after the property, is so helpful and she had the house cosy and warm for our arrival on a cold Halloween afternoon. We spent our long weekend walking on the local beaches and then relaxing in the house in...more
The house was beautifully prepared for us - cosy, warm and welcoming. The location is so well placed - very easy to get the 67 bus right into the centre of Dublin, easy to access roads elsewhere, and Celbridge also has everything you would need, not least the wonderful estate to walk round. A very enjoyable and relaxing stay with the added delight of staying somewhere out of the ordinary. I know the Irish Landmark Trust do not control the weather! - but that was fantastic too, bathing us in sun filled autumn colours.
Such a charming property in a great location. Had a lovely stay here with my wife and some friends really enjoyed it. Our host Grace was fantastic in preparing the house for us and permitting us access.
