My husband and I stayed here after doing the Comeragh Bogtrot and it was the perfect place to rest up after a long days trek in the rain. The rooms were really lovely and the jacuzzi bath was most welcome. We ate in the restaurant too and the food was very nice. The service was was excellent and the staff... More

Having spent a wonderful 3 day break with Mary, Eoin and Judith I really can't add to the very positive reviews already submitted except to say that my husband, who is a coeliac, has never before been catered for so well. We gave Mary advance notice of his needs, and during our stay he must have had a choice of 5... More

Hanora's Cottage is a very special venue where, from the moment we arrived, we were treated like VIP's. The welcome is very genuine and evident. At every turn, we are asked if we would like tea or coffee and charming areas abound for sitting and chatting, including one with an open fire. Dinner was spectacular, mushroom treat in a glass,...

This place is unique. You may come across 'slicker' high end B&B's. However you will have to search hard to match the service & homely feel of Hanora's Cottage. I will start with the only minor negative memory I had of this place, its setting is beautiful, next to a roaring river, a historic church as its next door neighbour... More
