“Delightfully Charming”

This cottage was delightful. Marsha greeted us at the cottage to show us around and welcome us. She had made us soup, bread and treats to make us feel at home. The beds were super comfortable. He directions to find the cottage were fantastic. It was a wonderful place to stay.

“Fantastic Location in the middle of nowhere and 10 minutes from city centre.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Absolutely loved this cottage. Clean as a whistle in the middle of the beautiful countryside and yet 10 minutes from the city centre. The landlady Marsha is a sweetheart and the home baked scones and brownies were an added bonus. All you need to get started in the fridge and presses (tea, coffee, butter, milk etc) Plenty of space inside and out. Will definitely be back

“CHILDREN HAD A GREAT TIME.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed for five days with our two grandchildren aged 4 and 8,They loved feeding the donkeys in the field next to the garden, in the morning and evening, The owner Marsha could not have been more helpful,Lots of local places to bring the children,They loved the reptile Zoo and Bowling. The only negative was narrow roads to the cottage, But owner met us and we followed in our car.

“Rural peace, great touring location and only ten minutes from the centre of Kilkenny.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Carrigeen cottage is an ideal location to explore the south east of Ireland. Deep in the countryside yet only ten minutes from the vibrant centre of Kilkenny, with its historic buildings, picturesque streets , great restaurants and pub music scene. Wexford, Waterford, Cobh, Cashel are all within driving distance as well as many smaller towns and villages. There was so much it kept us busy all week and we still did not see it all. The cottage is newly renovated with every modern convenience and sits in an old farm yard with a grassy sward to one side which adjoins a field with three friendly donkeys. The track entrance to the property was a little hard to find initially but I understand that this is to be remedied. We had hares coming up to the cottage after the hay had been cut. Great place to stay.

redelijk appartement, goede bedden, warmwatervoorziening laat af en toe te wensen over. meubilair in "zitkamer" weinig comfortabel.
directe omgeving lelijk.
goede uitvalsbasis voor wandelingen (mits beschikking over auto)

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found the bed comfortable. I am quite surprised that you found the surroundings ‘ugly’ - the Irish countryside is generally quite liked by locals and visitors alike. And also our cottage is situated on a traditional old Irish farm. I am puzzled as to your expectations.
The hot water system was just newly installed within the last year and a half so there should be no issues with hot water like you stated. If you had problems with it I would have been delighted to drop down to you to address it. There have been no issues with any other guests. I am disappointed that your stay in Carrigeen did not live up to your expectations and I hope you enjoyed your trip to Ireland in general. Thanks again for reviewing Carrigeen Cottage.

“Urlaub auf dem Land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Das Cottage ist dank exakter Übermittlung der GPS-Daten sehr gut zu finden. Es wurde liebevoll modernisiert, Zentralheizung und Kaminofen inklusive. Kilkenny liegt nah - mit dem Auto nur 10 Minuten bis ins Zentrum. Wir wurden von Marsha sehr freundlich empfangen, für den ersten Abend und das Frühstück war sogar der Kühlschrank gefüllt.
Das Cottage liegt sehr ruhig.
Vielen Dank an unsere Gastgeberin Marsha
