Thank you so much for your fantastic accomodation, the great staff, the very fine restaurant and especially the huge hospitality during our stay. By the way, the Sean Kelly Comeragh Challenge was a fabulous experience for me and I enjoyed the whole 160 K. I even had the luck to have a nice talk with Sean Kelly!!.

Your host here makes you feel totally at home and relaxed. The service is second to none and nothing is too much trouble. The dinner was top class and breakfast was delicious and they even had homemade brown bread. You will chill out as soon as you enter the front door. For cyclist and walking this is ideal.

I have heard of Hanora's for at least two decades but have only just had the opportunity to spend an all-too-brief night there. Firstly - it is in the most stunning location - pictures could not do it justice - and the drive from handsome Clonmel is breathtaking. On first impressions from the outside, Hanora's does not promise very much... More

Thank you very much Noel for such a glowing review. Sorry about the delay in checking you out, being next door to the Chapel I would be afraid to miss Mass in case the man above would pull the rug from under me! Look forward to having you with us again. Regards from all here. Mary. More

Hanora's Cottage is located in quite a remote location but thankfully our sat nav got us there without a problem and it was certainly worth seeking it out. The place oozes charm, character and genuine Irish hospitality. After checking in we guided to one of the many amazing hikes available in the Commeragh mountains and Nire valley. On our return...

We were offered refreshments tea and coffee with delicious cake(good start). We then went for lovely walk before our evening meal, the menu had a good selection which... More

We stayed for one night and got room 9, right above the kitchen. You could hear the staff working in the kitchen the whole time. The room itself was big, but did have some issues. One pillow case was dirty, the curtains have several stains on them and there were two spiders above the bed (one of them a huge... More

We had the pleasure to meet up with family and friends in this idyllic place with the most beautiful surroundings. Mary was exceptional, very efficient and extremely welcoming. The room was beautiful, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. As for the food, well what can I say the dinner and breakfast were fantastic and very generous. All in all... More
