Just returned from Ireland where four of us shared the thatched cottage for a week. I can't say enough how comfortable the accommodations were. We had a very minor shower (hot water) issue in one of the bathrooms that was resolved quickly. It was not an problem for us at all. The location is perfect, close to Adare village but... More

I have had mainly good to great experiences in our travels, guided often by the collective advice of the Trip Advisor community, so it is rare that I contribute a below average review but this is one of those--all the more unusual as the lodging had universal 5 ratings at the time I made my reservation. The good: We stayed... More

Thank you Joan and Michael for the most wonderful visit to Southern Ireland. We came early for my son's wedding near Dublin and stayed in the Barn for 5 nights. Truly amazing!!! If I could give 10 stars I would. My sister and I could have stayed forever. Great location for all the best sights in Southern Ireland. If you... More

This is the best place to stay in Adare. On the farm and away from the the traffic and yet only 5minutes from the shops. The house is beautiful and warm. The kids loved the space to run around and see the calves. Even had a go in the milking shed myself. What a great experience and an awesome place... More

It was such a wonderful experience to stay in a traditional Irish dwelling with the warmth of a fireplace and the lovely Irish decor...it is inviting and cozy. The most impressive throughout the Stone Barn Cottage are the beautiful paintings and sketches by Joan Toomey, the owner (a hobby of hers). It makes the Stone Barn very homey looking. The... More

Our stay at these Cottages were the highlight of a memorable family trip. The main thatched cottage is an historic gem, tastefully updated with the modern conveniences yet maintaining its charm. Even the stone barn which is entirely modern inside (not much historic to save in a barn) has a small window opening showing what the structure used to be.... More

I just returned from a 2 week trip in Europe which included a stop in Ireland. It was my first visit to Ireland and happened to pick Adare as our base to visiting other wonderful sites. Although each site was impressive (Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle along with the countryside) nothing could compare to the charm and hospitality of the... More

We were looking forward to our stay at this cottage, and we were not disappointed. Just about 5 minutes from the cute Adare village, which we really enjoyed. Joan greeted us with her homemade sconce (the best by the way) and the most delicious homemade raspberry jam and whipping cream. She even offered to make us some tea while we... More

Our family attended a wedding reception in Adare in August this year and for 4 nights we had the pleasure of staying in the Stone Barn. What an absolute treat it was! Joan and Michael Toomey are wonderful host landlords. Joan gave us a full tour of the operations, told us the workings of everything and were available for help... More
