“A great place to relax!”
Reviewed March 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed at Clover Cabin for the weekend - which wasn't long enough! The cabin was fantastic. It had everything that we needed and the hot scones on our arrival were very much appreciated.
We did a bit of sightseeing during the day and relaxed in front of the log fire in the evenings. It was heaven! It's a great place to relax and unwind!
We definitely will be back.
Thanks to Fergal and Annette

“A great getaway close to Dublin”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Clover cabin is a great place to stay, a little over 1hr from Dublin, 15mins from Kilkenny city.
It's a very cosy wood cabin, with 2 double bedrooms and 1 kids room with two beds.
The hosts were good at emailing back & forward before our stay and we sent them a text message when en route with our ETA and they were there to meet us when we got there, with freshly baked scones!
The fire was burning when we got there and ample firewood was provided, enough to last our entire stay.
The house is well equipped, washing machine, dishwasher and the kitchen is a good size.
TV (with cable) & Wifi are included in the price.
If you want to getaway from Dublin, or want to base yourself close to Kilkenny, this is a very relaxing chilled cosy cabin.
Note: you will need a car to get there and explore the area.
We'd highly recommend and intend to go back.

“Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed November 22, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Excellent place to get away from it all. The location is set in a rural environment with Kilkenny city less than an hour away.
The Cabin itself is is warm comfortable and well laid out with facilities outside for families with young children.
We were warmly welcomed by Fergal on Arrival and the freshly baked scones were greatly appreciated

“An Amazing weekend!”

We spent a long weekend at Clover Cabin and what an amazing place it was! We have 3 children - a 4 year old and 1 year old twins - they all loved it. There were plenty of toys and games in the cabin for them to play with and they all loved the giant sandpit and playground area outside. The cabin itself was very clean and had everything that you would need..from every type of kitchen utencil, right down to hooded bath towels for the kids. Thank you Fergal and Annette - its a truely magical place that you have and we can't wait to return!

We had the most wonderful stay in Clover Cabin. On arrival Fergal met us with freshly baked scones and had the log fire going making the place warm and welcoming. The cabin itself is spectacular and spotlessly clean. The place is really well thought out and they have everything you could need. They even have hooded towels for the kids which is a lovely added touch! The place is perfectly located- close to Kilkenny City, the Watershed and Castlecomer Discovery Park to name but a few. Although you could happily stay in the cabin all day and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. It is perfect for young families or a cosy romantic stay.
