Reviewed July 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a group of six for our trip. From the start, we had great communication with the owner, Suzanne. She would always respond within a day of emailed inquiries. The cottage itself is the exact fit for anyone looking for cozy, quiet accommodation in a rural area. It sits right on an inlet for the bay. It had a fully functional kitchen and 3 bedrooms plus a den and fit the six of us with no trouble. The place was very clean when we arrived and we found our way around very easily. There are showers in each bedroom with a modern water system for each so we all had hot showers with good pressure (This is a big issue for us Americans, I know.). We never heard a peep out of the neighbors, with the exception of three gregarious jack russell terriers that live next door and come running to greet you each time you pull in. They were just a free perk to this already terrific place. One piece of advice; If you are from the States, let Suzanne know ahead of time. She apparently has a much easier method for getting the very affordable rental payment to her bank. International wire transfer over here is an expensive pain in the bottom. The place was great and I would stay there again. Thanks, Ms. Murphy!

“Our stay was like stepping back in time, with all of the modern conveniences!!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and our 3 children ages 7-14 recently stayed in this magical cottage outside of Dundalk. It was really "Charming". The owners have gone to great lengths to provide historical information related to their family throughout the home, and the information made our stay so interesting. The house is completely furnished, with comfortable and tasteful décor. Our kids were able to play outside the entire stay with their new found neighbor friends and several happy dogs. The property is gated from the main road, but you will not feel isolated, as the caretaker is right next door. The caretakers were so nice and offered information about the house, as well as their availability if we encountered any problems. The cottage is a 3 minute drive from Dundalk which has everything to offer, and a 1 minute drive to the Ballymascanlon Hotel which offers a spa and 5 star dining. My husband is from Dundalk, and his entire family was in close vicinity for visits (they all loved the turf fire in the evenings). We could not have asked for a better experience and appreciate that the owners were so easy to deal with during reservations. We will be basing our next visit on the cottage's availability. We have 3 kids, and would never torture them with a hotel room again!!! We have travelled all over the world and typically stay in 4-5 star accommodations, please take our review to heart and don't let this vacation property pass you by!!!

“Wonderful location, traditional yet very comfortable Irish cottage.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

All mod cons, yet still retains Irish cottage heritage. Very close to race course and good restaurants who will both pick you up and take you home at no charge! Would recommend to both families and groups,of adults.
