On a recent holiday to Ireland I visited Hanora's cottage for an evening meal. It's a lovely cottage hidden away in the countryside. The food was excellent home cooked food and the welcome we received from Mrs Wall and her staff was warm and friendly which made for a very relaxing evening. I would definitely recommend this hidden gem if... More

The rooms are very comfortable With a TV couch and well appointed bathroom, jacuzzi and all. The evening food is excellent as was the wine list. Breakfast is... More

Top class food is only part of it. Hanora's welcome is legendary..they can't do enough for you, whether it's hiking routes or other activities, the staff are helpful and friendly. And it's set in one of the most picturesque areas of the south. A must-visit place to go.

We have just been back to Hanora's Cottage and this time followed the signs and which were a great help. Lovely to be greeted like long lost friends by Mary, who had a welcoming cup of tea and freshly backed cakes ready for us. We had a lovely room (#10) which we would recommend to anyone thinking of staying. Dinner,... More

Hanora's Cottage was a really cute place to stay. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant is top notch! Perfect for us as we had family in the area that we were visiting with. The one down side is the reception, but you can't expect to go out in the country a bit and still get great wifi. However, that... More

Nice out of the way stay, quiet relaxing atmosphere, beautiful house. Nice gardens to wonder through. Mary makes all her breads, also you can buy jars of preserves... chutneys etc. Great breakfast. Wifi only available in one room but don't let this bother you- it is not their fault.
