Beautiful country home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home outside the lovely village of Adare. Especially loved the sunroom with views of the hills and cattle grazing next door. The house is very clean, with comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen. It was a great location for exploring the southwest region of the Republic of Ireland.

Perfect for a group of six

  • 4 of 5

The Fanningstown House was absolutely lovely and perfect for our 4 adults and 2 toddlers. Angela’s husband met us at the home, gave us a quick tour and let us be. Angela stocked us up with goodies so we could start our vacation without an immediate run to the grocery store. There was a teeny tiny hiccup; we were not aware we needed to pay for heat. It was not on the VRBO site nor any other correspondence. However, it wasn’t much, 50 euros for our five nights, it just caught us by surprise.

The bedrooms are large, kitchen is nice with the huge table and plenty of space so we were not right on top of each other. The kids loved loved loved seeing the cows on the grounds. Thank you so much, we had a great stay.

Wow!! The pictures just don’t do this gorgeous house justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a magical Easter stay in your beautiful home. We cannot thank you enough. Your home is warm, immaculately clean and comfortable. Your kindness of the beautiful fresh flowers and a huge Cadbury chocolate Easter egg were very much appreciated. The house location is perfect for touring Ireland’s southern counties. Angela was the utmost professional host. She was very kind and eager to please. My family and I cannot thank her enough. We look forward to returning next Easter.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for our group of 8 (4 kids and 4 adults). The house was spacious and spotless. The bedrooms and common rooms were all well appointed and allowed for everyone to gather together and yet have their own space. I am very picky about beds and the mattresses were very comfortable (which can make or break a stay sometimes)!! Lots of bathrooms with plenty of towels - 1 bathroom had a gorgeous tub. The kitchen also had everything we needed to cook. One of the reasons we choose this house was the huge kitchen table which would accommodate everyone to have meals together. Host even started us out with some basic groceries which was perfect since we arrived with hungry kids!! Outside was also beautiful and the kids loved seeing the cows pass by one of the days. After staying here we moved on to Dublin to a very nice hotel and yet all the kids could talk about was wanting to return to this house! It was a hit with everyone and the highlight of our stay. We also enjoyed this house because of its location. It was a great homebase for a day trip to Galway (north) and Cork (south). They also had a washer and dryer - and this is probably my only complaint and I'll attribute it to being American and expecting everything to occur quickly. While it was wonderful to even have the W/D - they took FOREVER. However they were nice new machines, just not what we were use to with kids. Overall I would absolutely recommend this house. The hosts were very accommodating and kind before, during, and after the rental. The area is quite and relaxing and a beautiful gem of Ireland.

A Perfect Christmas in Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from the USA to Adare for Christmas, arriving on Christmas Eve to be greeted by Angela and John who welcomed us into their lovely home in the country. The house is beautiful and has all of the amenities advertised. We spent a lot of time around the fireplace enjoying the endless supply of wood and coal. There are plenty of activities to engage in and sights to see within an hours drive. Adare village is wonderful and is a perfect central location for vacationers, and this house has all you need. Thank you Angela for your great hospitality and for making our arrival on Christmas Eve as easy as it could possibly be.
