Perfect quiet, private, clean and spacious spot to relax after a day of touring. Four of us all said we'd stay again, because Mary and Jim are genuinely welcoming, flexible and patient; Mary shared life stories and suggestions for our stay and everyone loved her chocolate cake! Also, the location is central for grocery, dining and sightseeing. Each bedroom has... More

Our first visit to Ireland. this was the first week of a special holiday for my ill sister. We had the one level cottage fitted out for the disabled. The cottage décor was so good and it had the wow factor big time. It was wonderfully fitted out and so spacious and clean. so many gadgets to use in the... More

Just back from a week's holiday which from our experiences of self-catering in Ireland has to be Tops! Mary, the Owner/Host was so welcoming, even down to having fresh bread, biscuits, milk and butter provided and the surprise of a freshly baked cake supplied by Mary on Tuesday. The property was fresh and spotless and the fire supplies for the... More

The welcome is everything what you could hope for... and what's more the house is warm with a fire on in the stove and a few basics in the fridge and cupboards. If you want to get away from it all while being close to the motorway (a few km) and Kilkenny, it's a good choice. The Nore River is... More

Very pleased with the accommodation. Mary is a wonderful host. The house is very clean and comfortable. So nice to have basic supplies in the fridge when we arrived and the homemade loaf was delicious. The setting is so peaceful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, convenient place to stay.

Stayed here with my husband and two other adults and could not have asked for a better experience. Mary O'Connell and family were absolutely lovely and accommodating, even though we arrived much later in the evening than we had planned, and greeted us homemade tea cakes/buns that didn't make it past two hours! Just a really love home, feels very... More

A very pleasant stay in a quiet location in the heart of the countryside, within walking distance of the river Nore, and surrounded by cattle with the sound of milking in the morning. Our hostess Mary O’Connell was a gem who made the best scrambled eggs I ever tasted with smoked salmon (or you could have a full Irish breakfast).... More

We stayed at one of the self catering apartments in Oct. and it was great. We have stayed in many self catering units over the past few years and this was one of the best. We didn't need the second bedroom or bathroom, but if you do it's there. The apartment is part of a duplex, but is arranged so... More
