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. The cottages are more than it says on the website, the place is a haven of pure luxury . When you drive through the gates it's like the world outside has ceased to exist! The... More

This was our second stay in Little Orchard Cottage and it amazed all over again. This is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday - even with our two year old and ten month old sons! They had a great time playing in the gardens and on the beach. The only trouble we had was getting them back inside!!... More

We spent three nights at the Honeymoon Cottage in Sept. 2014. It is the smallest cottage on the premises, but more than fulfilled the needs of two people. The cottages are truly unique and beautiful and located on a most excellent beach. Roger, Liz and Mel were wonderful hosts. They each wanted to make sure that we were truly satisfied... More

We stood for three days in the Rose Cottage and the Cottage was much more better than we expected from the pictures. Wonderful decorated, clean and well equipped. The best of all was the windowsill with views to the sea. In only two minutes we were on the wonderful long beach. The hosts are indescribable. We had such a friendly... More

We were visiting family who live nearby, we had seen the cottages from the beach on our other visits and decided to treat ourselves. We were not disappointed, the garden cottage was very well maintained and comfortably furnished. The grounds are lovely with direct access to the beach, which we know well, a short walk takes you down to Bettystown... More

This was our first trip to Ireland and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The cottages are top notch, the gardens beautiful and Liz and Roger are perfect hosts. We felt like visiting friends. The location is excellent for relaxing on the beach or day trips to (and around) Dublin.
