The 3 days spent in the Little Orchard Cottage were a highlight of our stay in Ireland. The location is great and the cottage was everything we expected. Three restful days spent in beautiful, well-manicured surroundings. If you have a chance to stay here, take it. You won't be disappointed.

We spent 6+ relaxing pampered days at The Cottages. Top notch accommodations from the time we arrived. Everyone has told you about the amazing scones, I've never had anything like it. Unforgettable! . Our host's Liz and Roger went overboard to insure we had everything we needed. Even squeezed our family of 8 into a tour that was sold out!... More

Wonderful cottages right on the Irish Sea. Warm scones and tea on arrival. Gorgeous and secure property. Close to bus stop for day trips to Dublin City-no need to drive. Matthews coaches 6 euro each way to Dublin city. Very comfortable. Clean. Highly recommended.

Just had a wonderful 4 night stay in the cottages. They are so well located right on the beach but within the security of a gated compound which is great for young children.

The cottages are beautiful, the gardens stunning and the views breathtaking. Enjoyed early morning walks along the beach and a glass of red wine watching the waves every night. To top it all off the hospitality was the best we have ever had. Thank you for a holiday to remember.
