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

When the gates to the Cottages swing open, you enter a beautiful, fairy tale-like vacation oasis! My wife and I were celebrating our 20th Anniversary, and our stay could not have been more perfect! We also brought her parents for their first trip to Ireland, and it was the perfect location for them as well. The Cottages have been lovingly... 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.

Just returned from an excellent week at the cottages. Roger, Liz and the team made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough for us.
