We came here directly from the airport and Mary allowed us to check in early so we could get a nap in. Wonderful place to start from as we were able to eat dinner there and relax as we allow ourselves time to adjust. Breakfast was wonderful and we then headed out for the day with recommendations. Could easily have... More

Mary Wall certainly knows what her customers want and has a charming hotel with wonderful rooms and a great restaurant serving great food. Its on the doorstep of the Comeragh way with wonderful...

Mary and Eoin were so welcoming and wonderful! We wish that we could have stayed longer. The window to our room opened up to the sound of the river. Awesome jacuzzi tub. The house and grounds are beautiful. It is literally 2 miles from amazing hiking in the Comeragh mountains. This was my happy place and favorite spot in Ireland!... More

If you want a perfect place for a quite stay with amazing scenery, look no further! We were greeted with coffee and muffins, had delicious steak for dinner (Eoin is a great cook) and Mary was very accommodating. I would recommend this place a million times over again.

Just spent a wonderful weekend at Honara's Cottage in the Nire Valley. Our room was fantastic, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The food here is wonderful - Best breakfast ever, and home made breads etc available for a backed lunch, and dinner each evening was superb! This is no ordinary B&B.

Hi Malcolm, Thank you so much for such a splendid account of your visit to Hanoras. It was great to have you both with us and that you really appreciated our efforts.

We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend hiking the beautiful Nire Valley. Room #1 was spacious with a lovely view over the river. Very comfortable bed and a lovely, relaxing jacuzzi bath after a long day walking. Staff are fantastic, helpful and friendly.

Wonderful couple of days at Hanora's Cottage - a perfect place, after a sumptuous breakfast, from which to set off for a day's walking in the nearby hills and to return to the home comforts provided by Mary and her staff, not least of which was a delicious evening meal. Thank you everyone, we'll be back!
