“The detail in the building is a credit to Alex, the owner.”
Reviewed September 19, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The Linen Mill, Kells is the conversion, with working water wheel, that we rented for the family this weekend. Cannot recommend it more highly, it was comfortable and homely with loads of features, with plenty for oldest to youngest in the whole venue. The detail in the building and the furnishing is a credit to Alex, the owner. Alex was helpful and accommodating to the needs of our family party, and a welcoming host. We had to re-arrange our arrival time at short notice, and she postponed an appointment for us. This was before we made a connection through family unbeknown to us in a neighbouring farm, and old school friends of mine in the locality! The location is beautiful on the Kells Water, accessed by a substantial ford; and alternative access is available. Alex is proud of the Green credentials of the site, and has put in place through the layout, and her efforts, to encourage wildlife, from bats to otters. I took the opportunity to take a lot of photo's during the stay, and expect that the charm would be evident at any time of the year.

“Perfect break”
Reviewed September 2, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Thank you Alex for a wonderful Break. The beautifully restored old linen mill is exactly that- beautiful! The most idyllic location, and such a special house that is warm, welcoming, unique and interesting. My family loved the nature and peacefulness while being close to great places to visit. Alex was wonderful and we felt very welcome. I can safely say we are already looking forward to our next break in the beautifully restored old linen mill. I Cannot recommend highly enough x

“Truly idyllic country house”
Reviewed August 8, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We arrived as a party of 5 to attend my sons wedding to a local girl. We were warmly greeted by Alex who welcomed us to her home with a smile, fresh hens eggs, locally produced bread and milk. We were truly impressed by the romantic location situated next to a river in the beautiful Irish countryside. We chose this house because we wanted to relax in the countryside yet be close enough to the wedding party so it was a win win. The house is beautifully maintained with all the mod cons, luxury toiletries, linen and facilities. There was plenty of room and our children had a ball. We look forward to coming back. Thankyou
