“Wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining family and friends”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

As we pulled into the driveway of Rathellan House for our New Years Eve stay we were immediately impressed by the beautiful Georgian style house. We were met on arrival by the lovely owner of the house, Stella, who ran us through every aspect of the house before our group arrived. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the central heating and underfloor heating ensured that the house was warm and cosy for the duration of our stay. The house was absolutely spotless on our arrival and all the additional touches were of 5* hotel quality.

Rathellan house is a delightful mix of the old and the new. Each of the six double bedrooms are all tastefully decorated, in keeping with the Georgian Style of the house. Each of the rooms is furnished with a large ornate bed and decorative furniture. Every member of our group commented on the comfort of the luxurious mattresses and Egyptian cotton bedsheets. Each double bedroom also has a sleek, contemporary ensuite bathroom. Our group consisted of a family of five, two couples and two individuals. We had ample space in terms of bedrooms and the living space.

The highlight for me had to be the fully equipped industrial kitchen containing every conceivable utensil, item of crockery and baking material imaginable. It meant that it was a pleasure to cook for such a large group. The dining room, with open fire, has space to seat up to twenty people and made every meal feel special.

I am already considering a return trip to Rathellan House and I would highly recommend it for family get-togethers or celebrations.

“Beautiful home, beautiful hosts, beautiful country”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed a week in June with a group of friends and had a wonderful time at Rathellen. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary while there and Stella helped me to arrange a special surprise evening for my husband. She and Eamonn served an amazing meal for the group and followed that up with entertainment by Na Broic, or The Badgers. This talented group of 4 young men played wonderful Irish music for us in the drawing room for a couple of hours. It was a spectacular evening and one that I will never forget.

But back to the house... the rooms are appointed beautifully, it is quite comfortable for a large group, everything you need is here and the location was perfect for a base to tour south and central Ireland. I highly recommend a stay here!

“All Around the Best”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

There is no need for any hesitation whatsoever to have Rathellen House as your next vacation rental in Ireland. First, the house is absolutely wonderful. New construction with all of the luxuries (we never ran out of hot water with 18 of us taking showers every morning) with all of the beauty of well appointed, beautifully decorated with the utmost sense of care. We have stayed at many VRBO type properties, Stella and Eammon are at the top of the heap. Delightful folks who are now friends. EVERY detail attended to. Our family was at Rathellen for a special birthday celebration. Stella was always available to coordinate every detail. Amazing customer dedication. The Birthday dinner was glorious and delicious. A formal beautiful table setting that was beyond 5 star restaurant standards. We used Coopers cottage also and it is a delightful retreat. In addition to this fabulous home, Rathellen and Coopers Cottage the location for a family retreat and vacation is wonderful. So many interesting sites to visit within a days trip. They have been named in other reviews. Stella is quick to help you with directions or arrange for a bus to take your group. Bottom line, my family and I will never forget our time at Rathellen. The best. A silly note---we had twin 1 year olds with us, we had to buy a baby monitor to hear if they were crying the sound proofing was so great. We also had many adult cousins who had not seen each other in years staying up late at night talking and laughing and the house was silent. That truly speaks to the quality you will experience at Rathellen. You will be so pleasantly surprised at the beauty and the sense of care the home and Stella and Eammon will give you.

“Incredible Hosts... Lovely house and property!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family rented the house for a family reunion. It was perfect!!! Stella and Eammon could not have been more kind or accomadating and helped us to arrange so many details for our time in Ireland. Very grateful! ... Btw, the bed was amazing, everything was very clean and comfortable; plus the kitchen is stocked with every pan, utensil and dish you could imagine. The central location also made it very easy to see both east and west sides of the country. I hope to visit again!

Rathellen House exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were all wonderful! It was perfect that all the bedrooms had their own bathrooms. The house and grounds were so beautiful we had a hard time leaving them to explore the surrounding area. But when we did the location made it easy to do days trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Waterford, Cashel, Galway and the list goes on.

“Comfort and Luxury!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our group of friends stayed for a girls weekend in May 2014 and had a wonderful weekend. The owner, Stella, made us feel right at home when showing us around and we could not believe how well equipped the house was. There is a professional standard kitchen and a fabulous dining table, great for large groups as everyone can be seated at one table. The living areas are luxurious but also very comfortable and each bedroom is as wonderful as the next, some even have Jacuzzi baths. There is a nice outdoor space for eating and barbequing and the surrounding area is beautiful with a lot to offer for any holiday-maker.
