What a wonderful stay. The cottages are so cute and cozy. The staff is more than helpful even giving you tips on what sites to see. The price is up there but worth it completely. You can walk right along the beach to Bettystown and pick up groceries for your stay. The Rose Cottage was perfect for the three of... More

Seriously ....this is just an amazing cottage complex, an Oasis .... our cottage [Little Orchard] was lovely, high quality, spacious, clean, warm, well equipped. Stunning view to the sea. The location is incredible, a pass coded gate lets you straight out onto a practically deserted stretch of sand - many kilometres. You can walk up the beach to Bettystown and... More

This was our second vista to the Cottages and it was even better than the first time (which was perfect). Beautiful cottages with everything you need for a wonderful stay. When we arrived there was hot tea and fresh scones waiting for us in the kitchen. The staff is lovely and very helpful and friendly. We were told about several... More

I am an author on the Oregon Coast. I went to Ireland to do research for an upcoming novel. My husband and I stayed at The Cottages and had a fantastic time. What a beautiful setting, and the Apple Cottage was everything one would expect an Irish cottage to be. Came home and told all our friends. Thank you Liz,... More

The Cottages are fantastic!!! We slept 4 adults and 3 young children comfortably in a quaint cottage that was well modernized inside. The location was great - beach outside the door; walking distance to Bettystown and Laytown; short drive to Dublin and major roadways.

What a special place! My sister and I and our two young families stayed there over Christmas. It couldn't have been nicer. Cosy but still spacious, charming, well-equipped cottages with a gorgeous view. Just a lovely feeling of calm. We felt it was ours. We joined the rest of our family in our parents' house for Christmas day but actually... More

My spouse and I stayed in The Rose Cottage for ten days in August. We had read the rave reviews and found everything and everybody related to The Cottages as wonderful as advertised. Liz is an extraordinarily friendly host, who lets you know she is glad to have you staying with her. Mel was available when we needed her. The... More

We have just returned from spending a week in Apple Loft Cottage. The combination of hospitality ,quality of the cottage and the setting, mean that for us, it will be the cottage rental all others are compared with. Liz, Roger and Mel gave us a lovely warm welcome, Liz and Mel are a mine of information and gave us so... More

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. The cottage was immaculately presented and very well equipped. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and Liz and Roger were the perfect hosts. The cottage had great views out over the beach to the sea and the only problem for our two girls (7 and 5) was...
