“Beautiful house with great facilities”
Reviewed October 15, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This was a perfect base for 7 adults attending a wedding in nearby Portlaoise. It has everything you need for your stay. The patio/garden area is beautiful, and made for some lovely pre-wedding photos. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bedrooms are spacious. The entire house is very clean. Justin was very easy to deal with, and was easily contactable and responsive to messages.
Justin's dad lives nearby and his two very friendly dogs visited the house frequently, which was enjoyed by all guests!

“Absolutely best place to stay and see Ireland”
Reviewed August 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Was greeted by Justin (and not turned away) as we drove in earlier than expected. He quickly went over everything and departed knowing what a long trip we had. The beds were comfortable, so nice for everyone to have their own room. Very safe area, great places to eat very close by, at least 3 grocery stores in town, but plenty in the house to get you started. Coming back from a long day & being greeted by the pups was wonderful. I really can't complain about anything. Oh, the portable hot spots were life savers on the road. Thank you Justin!

“A truly stunning property that everyone should visit... we'll be back!”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Myself, my partner and a couple of friends recently stayed in Morette House and we cannot say enough about it. The pictures don't do this place justice, the house itself is absolutely stunning, the decor in every single room is so unique, we really loved everything about it, from the cast-iron radiators to the bedside lockers - just top class. The kitchen really is the heart of this home - it's views of the garden (one you could only wish for) and the well feature really make it one of a kind. Everything we needed was there for us.

We had are own taxi service - make sure you contact John at Portlaoise Bus Hire.

Finally, Justin is an absolute pleasure to deal with, a real gent. We're looking forward to our return trip already.

“Best holiday home ever!”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We really enjoyed our week at the farmhouse. The house is beautiful and very clean and Justin is very friendly and helpful. In the house there is everything you need and we felt like kings and queens for a week! When we arrived at the farmhouse we couldn't believe this beautiful house was ours for a week. Our kids also loved the house. We visited beautiful Irish places but every day we came home the dogs were waiting for us and we loved that. It was really our best holiday ever. Thanks to Justin and the dogs who made our stay really pleasant.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Morette House is a beautiful home located in the countryside within driving of a lot of locations. We did daytrips to Wexford, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wicklow, Tullamore, County Tipperary to name a few while still enjoying the towns and villages in the surrounding area. It was a fabulous home to start and end our day enjoying either breakfast or dinner on the patio. Waking up each morning to the mist coming off the land and the cows moving from field to field was really enjoyable. You can see there is a lot of love put into this home and if you wanted to just seat and enjoy your surroundings it could easily be done. We will definitely be back and will recommend it to friends traveling to Ireland.
