Returning to The Cottages is like returning home. The welcome is real and you feel that you are remembered. Every detail is attended to and this makes for a very comfortable stay. I think there is some special magic about the place because time just evaporates so quickly. It doesn't matter how long your visit is, it's just not long... More

My second year here and once again I have found my joy. Right now I am sitting on the steps of Garden Cottage, my final night before departure. The sky is navy with brushstrokes of blood orange as it is sunset. Behind me I hear the rapture of night ocean. This is a magical place. It is part of the... More

Dear Milly, Thank you for waxing lyrical about The Cottages, you have a unique turn of phrase, painting pictures with your words! It's a Joy for us too that you enjoy the peace that is The Cottages so much. How special that you got to catch the 'Blue Moon' last night (i.e. consecutive full moons two nights running), a rare...

This is our second visit to "The Cottages" and we booked a week after a week in Connemara because we weren't sure if there would be enough to occupy two weeks. On hindsight this was a mistake and we would have had no difficulty in enjoying two weeks in Bettystown/Laytown and "The Cottages". On arrival, Mel welcomed us, made us... More

We are just at the end of two weeks here and it has been fantastic. The cottages are lovely. We stayed in Apple Loft. It is a great cottage to stay in with children as both bedrooms are upstairs. It has a beautiful view of the sea from the living room. Every detail has been thought of which sets it... More

This was our fourth visit to Roger and Liz's oasis of tranquility. We stayed in the Garden Cottage for the second time and felt so at home there. Everything has been thought about and put in place to ensure you want for nothing. The master bedroom up the stairs is beautiful. Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and everything you need to...

Beautiful setting, a peaceful haven beyond the entrance gates and a beach to die for. If you can be there for the sandcastle competition or the horseracing on the beach, so much the better. We stayed in the Honeymoon cottage, which was very well appointed and very warm and cosy. The other cottages generally have a view of the sea... More

What's not to love about these cottages! The setting is stunning. The cottages themselves are well decorated, well appointed, and well cared for. Everyone is friendly and helpful - making our stay a delight. Being able to take a bus nearly outside the gates to Dublin is very convenient - don't have to worry about parking or enjoying some wine... More
