“Interesting site - free parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

If you want to escape busy Cahir come and see the Swiss Cottage. Park at the free (!) car park and after your visit take a stroll at the river. Toilets are outside of the entrance fee area and so accessible to all.

“Loved visiting this little treasure in the woods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

It was lovely, the guided tour was excellent. We enjoyed walking out to it through the woods. The little cottage is well worth visiting.

“lovely walk to the swiss cottage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

we chose to park at the cahir castle and walk the pathway to the swiss cottage.. it was a enjoyable lovely walk. The swiss cottage itself is beautiful. Our guide was informative and the stories she told painted a picture of life in not only the castle but the swiss cottage. We were surprise to find there was a Canadian connection with the swiss cottage.. If you doing the castle and visiting the town it's worth the walk to the cottage.

“Small inside...but the outside is worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We walked out from the town out to the cottage, it's about a 20 minute walk and is reasonably easy to find.
The outside is lovely, it's been well renovated in the last 20 years. it's a lovely place to spend an hour or two. There are nice details inside and out. The tour is very short, so don't expect too much, the real gem is the work and detail of the outside of the building.

The fee is small, only 3 euros, and its opened from mid-March to mid-October.

“Small but perfectly formed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Good for a short visit. You are given a guided tour around the four delightfully renovated rooms. Interesting for adults.
