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

Our family stayed in Tatchers cottage for 3 nights. All the cottages are fab, it's like stepping into a scene from Hansle & Grettle, the setting is just amazing. We were lucky to have the cottage facing the sea. Waking up in the morning & having the view of the sea was amazing. The window seat at the dining table... More

We enjoyed an excellent short break at Honeymoon Cottage and I would recommend it without reservation. The cottages are set in an immaculate garden, a real haven of tranquillity, with a beautiful ambience and a gate straight out to a superb sandy beach. The cottage itself was very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The staff couldn't be more helpful - including... More
