I stumbled across the Cottages by accident through Google whilst searching for a 'self catering cottage in Ireland'. We spend 7 days there.
From the first discussion about booking the cottages through to the departure, the experience was first class. Incredibly helpful people, who have 6 beautiful cottages.
Communication before we arrived was excellent with fast response to any questions asked by e-mail.
All of the cottages are in a private hamlett off the main road between Bettystown and Laytown with secure, access code security. All of them are connected to the beach, again with secure access.
We stayed in Apple Loft which is a two bedroom two story cottage suitable for 4 people, and probably the best one as you can see everything that's going on from there including a sea view.
The cottage has recently been renovated with the website description 100% accurate... The kitchen includes a dishwasher, washing machine as well as the usual fridge, freezer, and cooker.
Bed linen, towels, tea towels etc. etc. were included with 'housekeeping' half way through the week to refresh everything - again an usual, but very nice touch for a self catering cottage.
Suffice to say we will be returning in 2011 and have already started the planning.
