“Dream come true.”
Reviewed July 7, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Having seen the Cottage some 14 years ago before the renovation since it is in my wife's family, I had always hoped that I'd get to stay there. I finally did and what a marvelous experience. Outside, stopped in time and just as I had remembered it. Inside, all the modern comforts so you're not roughing it. Peace and quiet, acres to walk around in and say hello to the cows and two minute from town. Living history not to be missed with the unique Irish hospitality.

“The Great Escape”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We loved our couple of days at Molassy Cottage. It was so different from all the other (urban) locations we stayed in during our visit to Ireland and our first time in a thatched cottage. Just like the cottage itself, the bucolic setting was also much to our liking. And just as Breda said, the cows in the adjoining field were a lot of fun - curious, if not quite friendly.
The cottage is an easy drive from Kilkenny city and Waterford, and the village of Callan with its supermarket and pubs is just a couple of miles down the country lane.
Can't think of anything we didn't like. Looks like Breda had thought about just about everything. Even got our washing done (and dried).

“Very comfortable , quiet, and in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Located out of the villiage which gave it a rural feel, and was very quiet. Only 5 mins drive to Callan, which has a supermarket. Very cosy without being tiny. Clean, tidy and well appointed. Would loved to have stayed longer.

This Cottage is SO relaxing. It is at the end of a road and so peaceful. It is perfect for a couple alone, kids, dogs...honestly, can't say enough good things about it. VERY clean, just a perfect get away!

“Perfect thatched cottage”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Staying at Molassy Cottage was a dream. It was beautiful and very well maintained. It has all the charm of a quaint cottage but with all the mod cons. Our family of four will always remember our visit to Kilkenny. Only regret was that we did not stay longer. Would love to go back for another visit.
