“Beautiful Cottage”
Reviewed July 17, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

A delightful cottage set in wonderful surroundings. The owners William and Gerardine are fantastic, so helpful and friendly and make you feel so welcome. The cottage has everything imaginable so that your stay is stress free.

Words can’t explain how tranquil Fraoch is, you’ve really got to experience the solitude and then you can come home feeling refreshed.

Fishing on Lough Derg is always our challenge and lots of fun, so to catch a fish (3 this year) is always a bonus.

So next year where shall our vacation be? ...Yes, once again we shall return to Fraoch for the rest, fishing and the warm welcome we know we shall receive.

William and Gerardine - Thank you

“Perfect cottage in beautiful location”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Thank you for a lovely week at Froach Cottage. The cottage itself was perfect. It had everything we needed and plenty of room for us (4 adults and 2 small children). The garden was beautiful (which the kids spent lots of time each day exploring). Lough Derg is a stunning location. We hope to return to Froach one day. Thanks Gerardine and William for all your help and for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage.

Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a warm welcome we had! You feel that William's and Ger have thought over everything to help make your stay comfortable. The location of the cottage is idyllic. Very peaceful. There is more than enough to do in the area, whatever the weather. Our family of four with two teenage sons enjoyed our stay. Highlights included kayaking through Limerick (get west) walking on the Lough Derg way and a say out to the Burren area and fanore beach.

“Fantastic - A Perfect Place to Stay”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage is situated in the glorious Irish countryside and has a home from home feeling, beautifully kept and also very well equipped. The owners Gerardine and William make you feel very welcome.
We had a brilliant 2 weeks in this lovely cottage and cannot recommended it enough. Garrykennedy is a beautiful place with lots to see in the surrounding area so you will not be disappointed. If you're a fisherman/woman, then Lough Derg is the place to be, where you will see all kinds of wildlife and if you're lucky even some fish! We will definitely be back! :-)

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

A really lovely quiet well maintained property. A short walk down to the private lake shore garden with a boat. The owners are very friendly helpful and welcoming. We went for the fishing and caught some lovely roach from the impressive laugh derg. Would recommend this property and can't wait to go back. 5 stars.

“Best of pike fishing or just escape to the nature”
Reviewed May 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This year( second one) me and my friends returned for a long weekend to escape daily rutine and enjoy the best what this place has on offer. At first its the cairing owners, then the spectacular nature( idillic clean and spacious house on the shore of Lough Derg), and... the Pike fishing. Boats can be arranged and they are proper fishing boats. Everything in house is clean and up to the highest standarts. Private pier and private access to boats. Not a soul around. Just nature and you. We booked already for next year...cant wait to go back. This place is one of the best out there. Try it. You wont regret. Thanks again to cairing owners.
