“Overall an enjoyable stay, but there were a few niggles”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The owners were friendly and helpful & provided tea, milk sugar & an apple pie on arrival. Good views of the surrounding countryside & it was nice to look out & see the cows. The horse in the field behind the house likes apples! Plenty of useful leaflets about local attractions. You have to pay a cash deposit of 50 euro for the gate remote. There was a wooden cot, high chair & stair gates available. Bring your own waterproof sheet & baby bedding. The house was very cold when we arrived & took a couple of days to warm up properly. Heating is by electric heaters (electricity not included in rental price). Hot water is from an immersion tank & it ran out quite quickly. The pump to the water tank was quite noisy, esp at night. Bedrooms are not a bad size and 2 of them have en suite facilities, but the double beds were not especially comfy. All beds had electric blankets. Towels & a haidryer were provided. The bathrooms could have been cleaner. The wet room had visible dust on the white plastic grab handles, there was quite bad mildew on both showers, and there was what looked very much like a pubic hair stuck under the clear mat in the downstairs bath! One of the basins was loose & one of the heaters was coming off the wall. Some of the kitchen equipment was scratched and /or dirty - the frying pan and kitchen knives in particular. Plastic plates & beakers provided for little ones. Nearest supermarket is in Kilkenny, 8km away. Is a dishwasher, washing machine & tumble dryer - bring your own powder / tablets for them.

Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The house was as spacious as on the pictures, and very clean. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. It was great for our 2 year old son, it even had toy cars and a ramp to play with. The yard is well fenced and without any dangers for a 2 year old. The trampoline is a nice soft one and the house is near the top of a hill and gets good sun in the afternoon (when the sun is out, it's Ireland), and we had a visit from a friendly horse. There is a friendly cat around too. The TV is not really big, but we don't really watch TV. The wifi internet access is stable and reachable through the house.

“Simply stunning”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Wow!!

What a great house to stay in. Extremely comfortable and clean. The trampoline was loved by our children who spent many an hour bouncing away. The fact this property is on a working farm was a real hit as well. The kids loved feeding carrots to the horse, watching the tractor and trying to stare out the cows!!

The owners were also extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

The house is also in a fantastic location. Kilkenny city is just beautiful and a very easy 15-20 minute drive away. The surrounding countryside is also amazing. Among the many Highlights of our trip were Woodstock Gardens, the Reptile Zoo in Gowran, Mohan Falls and everything about Kilkenny City.

I would thoroughly recommend this house to stay in. If we come back to this area again, we won't even bother to look elsewhere - nothing can beat this house.

“Absolutely first class accomodation which I would highly recommend”

people found this review helpful

We decided to visit Ireland in order to take my Mum to her childhood home for her 80th birthday. We booked the accomodation on line and really didn't know what to expect. From initial arrival where we were greeted by the owners as friends, right through to our departure we would not be able to make any negative comments at all.
The accomodation was first class and it was like staying in a five star accomodation. The owners were friendly and helpful at all times and my Mum's birthday treat was made complete.
Thank you so much for everything and we will be back at some time.Would love to do it in the summer.

Thank you so much for your great review. We are so glad that you enjoyed Beech Lane Farmhouse and found it a perfect place to celebrate your mum's birthday. It is so pleasing that such a thoughtful gesture to your mum went off without any hiccups! It's nice to see that the owners were so welcoming and tried to make you feel at home right from the start. We would love to get you booked in again for a summer stay!
