Darley Cottage really is a hidden gem set in the middle of beautiful, peaceful countryside not far from many of our relatives. We feel that the photos do not do justice to this gorgeous cottage, it is much bigger, brighter, cleaner and fresher than it looks online. The cottage has so much to offer, a lot of which is mentioned... More

Spent a long weekend at the cottage while competing in the Irish Open Indoor Archery Championships. Lovely accommodation, with everything you could need. Really enjoyed lighting the fire and playing cards in the cosy surroundings. Duncan was really helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.

With a little baby we wanted somewhere I could prepare her meals etc. Found Darley Cottage on internet. Duncan was so accommodating to allow us a two night stay (not the usual week as most cottages would expect you pay... More

DARLEY COTTAGE A quick trip to Ireland took us to the town of Carrickmacross where our gg grandmother was born in 1835. Apart from being the friendliest town we visited in our six weeks in the UK & Ireland, it also provided nearby Darley Cottage which has set new parameters for B&B’s. It is said ‘if you want something done,... More

Baby cots and a high-chair are provided, and overall the cottage is very well equipped (washing machine and tumble dryer, large living room, separate kitchen, showers in each of the rooms just...
