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!

Liz kindly moved us to another lodge which had twin beds to suit our needs. Such kind warm hosts Liz and Roger. Will definitely... More

We stayed in the Rose cottage on Valentine's weekend. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable. The owners had literally thought of everything; the cottage was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a weekend. Liz had even left homemade scones and milk in the fridge for us!! The cottages are in a brilliant location, half way... More

I booked a three night stay at the Cottages as the finale to mine and my wife's Honeymoon. There are simply not enough positive words to adequately describe how wonderful our stay was. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage for three nights and it was perfect for the two of us. While the Cottage is cozy, both my wife and... More

My husband and I stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage for our honeymoon in October and couldn't believe how wonderful it was. The cottage was the right size for two of us, comfy, very clean and fully equipped with wifi, tv, etc. We were out and about in Dublin some of the time, but could have easily spent the whole holiday...

I like Siobhan' comments and thought to "keep it as a secret hideaway...but a place so pretty is meant to be shared and enjoyed... ." It is so well tucked away that you could completely miss it. We stayed in honeymoon cottage and (comment, not criticism) if you are very tall, and used to ducking for doors, or small and... More

I recently spent a weekend at the cottages, our group of 11 (from the Netherlands) shared two cottages: The Orchard Cottage and Thatcher's Rest Cottage.
