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!

A lovely location for a group of friends to relax and chill out after some hill-walking. Hanoras cottage is like a home away from home: welcoming, cosy and friendly. Food was great, service was efficient and pleasant at all times, Thank-you to Mary, Ina, Anne and the Team for a great weekend.

Spent just one night here and was blown away by the lovely welcome from Mary and all the lovely staff at Hanora's... Nestled in the Nire Valley with all its beautiful scenery but still a comfortable drive from Dublin. A leisurely walk in the valley was followed by a gorgeous jacuzzi bath, followed by a three course meal which is... More

Stayed at Hanora's cottage w/end of 13 March 2015. Arrived late in evening & struggled to find the place. Once we got settled in to a lovely room, we enjoyed an excellent meal, with some wine from a reasonably priced wine list. Breakfast was to die for & after that we made a packed lunch for ourselves. Mary had organised... More

A few days ago I surprised my partner for his birthday and off we went to Hanora's Cottage in the Nire Valley. Firstly we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes. Our room which was the junior suite was far superior to most hotel rooms. A giant bed, tea/coffee facilities, a lovely sofa to sit and relax on, and a... More

Having booked one room and then added another as another daughter decided to come , Mary rang to check I did actually want 2 rooms. She was so nice on the phone it made me look forward to my visit even more. The pervading scent of homemade bread on entering took us back in time. The welcoming cup of tea... More

We wanted somewhere to celebrate our anniversary. This was a good option for us as we were able to go hiking that morning, and then afterwards check into our accommodation. The place has quite a charm about it, especially since all the Christmas decorations were up, it just felt homely. When we arrived we were offered tea and muffins, which... More
