“a little spot of Heaven”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2014

Have to say we both really enjoyed this break. My husband had never been to Kilkenny and this was a perfect location to explore from. Both Fergal and Annette were very welcoming and small touches made all the difference.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed July 17, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just stayed here with our four children (2-6) and every one of us had such a great time. We had read reviews beforehand and so we were very excited, but honestly the pictures do not do it justice at all. The cabin itself is spotless and really well laid out. The outside space is amazing and we spent most of our time outdoors, kids playing in the garden while we relaxed on the porch. The location is great, quiet and secluded, but not too far from Gowran or Kilkenny which is a lovely city. Fergal met us on arrival with beautiful scones and was so welcoming and helpful. Best holiday ever according to the kids and I think I would have to agree.

“In my kids words "this place is the bomb"”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Spent a week in this glorious cabin and to say my kids had a ball would be a understatement .
They loved it! The surrounding were amazing with a massive outdoor barbecue area, tree house and sand pit to keep them entertained. We did a midnight treasure hunt with headlights and the kids were ecstatic to say the least. My kids loved this place, you know they are happy when my 3 year old came into my bed at 6am and said "thank you for thanking me to this place " The cabin is spotless and the homemade scones on arrival were a lovely touch.
Would definitely recommend this cabin to any family with young kids. See you next year.

“Cosy cabin, lovely location”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at clover cabin. It provides everything you need for self catering. The grounds are amazing & even the rain won't affect being outdoors with the sheltered back area. Fab cabin!

We arrived to a very tranquil atmosphere and were met by the owner Fergal who couldn't be nicer. There is nothing left out, fire was lit, everything we need was provided. The accommodation is absolutely wonderful, felt like another world, just what we need to totally unwind away from a busy week. The lodge was so clean and beautifully decorated.
There was great outdoor seating and swinging porch seat to totally relax in and take in the atmosphere. Takeway service was ideal. Nice local pub nearby. We cant wait to go back, it really is a wonderful place to stay. Loved it so much. Came home looking up dates for our next stay. Thanks for such care.

A lovely welcome as always and our nearly 6 and 4 year old just love it here: the facilities from swings to tree house to books etc just made the weekend so relaxing. The scones and eggs as always a lovely little welcome and touch and I have just finised making a birthday cake with last of the eggs we received! Fergal and Annette always have place so ready for us and everything we need plus we are huge fans of Kilkenny to explore as a county> cannot wait until next visit at Clove Cabin!
