“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 31, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed here 21st October to 28th October. We arrived and were met with a warm welcome by Michael, who already had a fire lit for us, a fruit loaf on the table and even milk in the fridge. The cottage itself is beautiful with everything you need. Situated at the bottom of their farm, with beautiful views of open fields and hills and we even watched Hawks and kestrels hunting in the fields. The location is very peaceful and relaxed with a local pub a couple of minutes away, which has traditional Irish music some nights. The cottage was a great base for us to visit family from who lived near by but also near to some great tourist spots and only an hour or so away from Galway and Limerick.
On the day we were due leave shiela even came down make sure everything had been ok. Which it had been.We will definitely be staying here again when we next visit family.

“A delightful cottage in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here for 3 nights in August. The setting is just beautiful, looking out over the fields in the morning and watching the cows as they saunter into the fields. A great location to explore Loch Derg and the surrounding areas. The owners are incredibly warm and welcoming and genuinely,nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed and look forward to returning to Dairy Cottage.

“A beautiful cottage in quiet location.”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you stay at the The Dairy Cottage you will enjoy a quiet, isolated tranquility.

It's situated a 5 minute drive from the centre of Pocan (or Puckane, they seem to have more than one spelling. for this small village), just 15 minutes outside Nenagh in County Tipperray.

The 5 minutes from the the village centre - a church, 2 pubs and a religious grotto, a few B&Bs and strangely enough a Vauxhall dealership - are not a walking 5 minutes.

You could walk... but the lanes are not lit, are narrow, with few passing points and have no footpaths - so you could risk walking from the village in the day, there's not much traffic around here, every day seems like a Sunday - but you shouldn't risk a walk home from the pub at night, so basically you need a car.

The cottage is situated down a gravel drive off the country lane, a little narrow and steep but quite easy to navigate and with plenty of parking space and turning space outside the cottage.

The cottage itself is recently built or refurbished and is in excellent condition. There is a house bathroom which serves the larger main bedroom, but is not ensuite and a Jack and Jill ensuite off the 2 other bedrooms (ideal for a family, but you need to know the other guests quite well to share the ensuite, it's not very private).

There is a well equipped kitchen - strangely no microwave - the only thing we felt that was missing, there is a good dishwasher, a cooker and good central heating. There is good free wifi and the kitchen lounge is open plan with a wood burner if you stay in the colder months.

It all works really well, and is very comfortable and warm.

There is a nice patio/terrace at the back off the kitchen overlooking open fields with distant views. If you want a bit of isolation this place would be perfect.

The owners property is close by at the top of the drive, so although when you are in the cottage you are not overlooked - there are some neighbours not too far away.

We used it as a base to visit relatives and attend a wedding it was perfect. The only downside was the fact you needed to drive back from the pub, (Ireland has a zero tolerance for drink driving) there are so few other drivers on the road, you could risk it but it's not really ideal.

I would recommend the cottage it's a really great property and holiday let, you just have to be happy with the slightly isolated location. If you happy with that then it's perfect.

“Perfect luxurious and cosy retreat in lovely setting”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage is done out beautifully - very stylish and yet still cosy and homely, very spacious and extremely comfortable, and very well appointed. The modern fittings, tasteful furnishings and old cottage features have all been blended beautifully. Felt instantly at home and warmly welcomed by Sheila and Michael. Even the directions given for the drive from Dublin were perfect! Really clear and helpful. They really looked after us and couldn't have been nicer. The rural setting is gorgeous - very green, very picturesque, and very peaceful. Loads to explore in the area, so very well situated. Perfect retreat - we loved it.
