“Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We are an extended family of 8 travelling from Newcastle Upon Tyne, with ages ranging from 14 to 74 (2 parents, 4 children, 2 grandparents). We stayed over Christmas and stayed for 6 nights.
Paul met us on arrival and gave us a warm welcome and an introduction to the house. The 'treats' (especially the wine) were greatly appreciated after a long journey. The house was superb and met all of our needs, it had great facilities catering for all aspects of our stay. It is very open and airy, which suited us, and the views were fantastic.
Paul and Eilish were exceptional in helping us out of a situation we had enabling us to complete our stay.
All in all this was an excellent place to stay. It has great facilities, alot of grass and outside areas to play in - did i mention the games room - top notch!
Kilnaleck is a great place, not too far, and had all things we needed.

“An excellent holiday home, ideal for a relaxing break away with family or friends”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This property was excellent. A group of adults, teenagers and kids were all kept entertained during a wet November weekend. Paul extended a very warm and friendly welcome to us all and showed us around the house and pointed out local areas of interest. The house was very clean and tidy and warm and welcoming. We soon settled in to our new surroundings. The choice of entertainment was great for adults and kids alike - televisions, an excellent games room and last but not least a casino table in the front lounge provided many hours of entertainment for adults and kids alike. All the little extra touches such as food and drink welcome pack were much appreciated. And everything from washing up liquid to pots and pans were available if needed. I would definitely recommend this property for a relaxing break away with friends or family.

There were 8 people in our group altogether (a group of work friends), and the house had plenty of room for everyone. The bedrooms were all very nice and very comfortable. The bathrooms were bigger than expected, especially the main bathroom which is downstairs and has a great shower. The kitchen has everything that you would need and the living room is so cosy and homely!

The owner Paul was incredibly helpful when booking and throughout our stay, making sure we had any information that we needed about the house or about local areas/activities of interest. There are also a lot of information leaflets in the house to give you ideas when you get there.

The house is easy to find once you follow the directions given. We also printed out a map of which roads to take after Virginia as this is where it could be a bit difficult if you're not familiar with the route. Kilnaleck is a very quiet town, but it has a few small shops and also has some takeaways/pubs. The house is just a few minutes drive from the village of Kilnaleck and is only approx 10 minutes drive away from Cavan town.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and agreed that the house would be great for anything from a family break to a friends weekend away.

A group of 12 women stayed at this house for two nights. We were met by Paul in the nearby village of Kilnaleck and brought to the home where he showed us around. The heating had been on for several hours and the house was warm and spotless. It adequately slept the twelve of us in very comfortable beds and we had plenty of room to all sit together at meal times. There's a living area in the kitchen and two separate living areas with televisions so people could head off and have their own space. Attached to the house was a games room and we all agreed that it was a perfect spot for a few families with children to get away at a reasonable price without skimping on comfort. Paul offered us great deals on transport to nearby attractions such as Crover House, Cavan town and Causey farm. It was a great space for all the girls to get together without the restrictions of check out times or the expense of a hotel. Before we arrived we already felt well looked after as Paul was easy going and helpful with any questions or requests that we had.
