Can not recommend Mill Farm enough. From the warm welcome right at the beginning from Catherine and Austin, to the absolute beauty of the cottage itself. The cottage is very clean and to a high standard, and has everything you need. We went with our four children and they love it so much they didn't want to leave. So much...

Getting around
Located in a quiet, rural part of south east Ireland - the village of Foulksmills (or Foulkesmill as it is sometimes spelt) was recently described as a 'hidden gem' with its tranquil setting. A beautiful area to walk around, however a car is needed to get to some of the top tourist spots e.g. Hook Lighthouse and of course Loftus Hall - Ireland's best known 'Haunted House' - tours available from April to September daily. Cyclists can easily head to Kilmore Quay for a wonderful day at this seaside fishing village - taking the 'Norman Route'. Also the greenway from Waterford is now open & the option to cycle from Waterford to Dungarvan town is a must for active holidaymakers.
