We stayed as the Apple Loft, and had a wonderful time there! The cottage is clean, with a great view of the sea, and has everything you might need - washer, dryer, dishwasher. We have stayed there with a 10month old and a 2 year old. The owners have provided us with high chair, travel cot, baby gates. The cottages... More

My husband and I and our one year old daughter stayed in Rose Cottage April 8-12th. What a beautiful place to enjoy a relaxing Easter break. The cottages were exactly as the beautiful brochure portrayed them. We had a glorious sea view, extremely easy access to the beach and the grounds themselves were gorgeous with beautiful gardens, splashed with colour... More

We spent easter at the cottages. It was a great base to explore the area and the location on the beach meant we enjoyed long family walks in all weather! There is a lovely cafe just down from the cottages which we went to a few times. We went to fairyhouse to watch the Irish national great day out. We... More

Great cottages in a fantastic location with owners who care about what they are doing. The all day return coach service to Dublin allows you the best of both worlds, the big city and the tranquility of the beach...and all within half an hour of the airport. Perfect!
