Very attractive cottages and garden setting, every guest need has clearly been carefully considered. Attentive and genuinely caring hosts. Beside miles of unspoilt golden sands but also easy to access lots of attractions, we filled 12 days easily with 2 boys to entertain. Difficult to beat for relaxing Irish break.

On spending two weeks staying in Rose Cottage we were absolutely bowled over with the location, the friendliness of Liz, Roger, Mel and the rest, they could not do enough to make our holiday the delight it turned out to be. Beryl, Peter & Pat

My Wife and I took our family (at large) 17 in total to The Cottages for the first week in August. We had booked 5 of the 6 cottages on site. From our arrival to our reluctant departure we were quickly enfolded into the unique warm, hospitable, caring and generous ambience of The Cottages generated by our lovely hosts Roger... More

Wonderful place and visit. Great staff, kind and caring owners. Beautiful property with everything available one would need. Owners are thoughtful and supplied everything to keep one comfortable and relaxed. Loved the Honeymoon cottage, beautiful gardens and beach. We had a great visit to a beautiful country. Plans to return for future visit.

We spent a wonderful week in Thatchers Cottage. The moment that we walked into the cottage we felt right at home. It was extremely spacious and it had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. The sea view from the lounge is fantastic and it provides the perfect place to watch the sunrise. Access to the sandy beach is... More

Returning to The Cottages is like returning home. The welcome is real and you feel that you are remembered. Every detail is attended to and this makes for a very comfortable stay. I think there is some special magic about the place because time just evaporates so quickly. It doesn't matter how long your visit is, it's just not long... More

My second year here and once again I have found my joy. Right now I am sitting on the steps of Garden Cottage, my final night before departure.

This is our second visit to "The Cottages" and we booked a week after a week in Connemara because we weren't sure if there would be enough to occupy two weeks. On hindsight this was a mistake and we would have had no difficulty in enjoying two weeks in Bettystown/Laytown and "The Cottages". On arrival, Mel welcomed us, made us... More
