A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Coolbeg. The first time was with the previous owner & we were delighted to see that, although Pat & Maura have made changes, they kept the wonderful charm of the place & have made the gardens even more beautiful than we remembered. Pat was very welcoming & made us tea & homemade banana bread to enjoy while we waited for the floors to dry in the cottage. It was a great way to decompress after the long flight from the States & we felt so at home. The cottage was perfect for venturing out to sightsee, especially into Limerick. We were there to renew our vows on our 36th wedding anniversary at St John's Cathedral. My husband's grandparents were married there in 1913, so this was a very special event. Pat & Maura made it even more special by making me a bouquet from the lovely flowers in their garden! We came back from a day in Listowell & there on the table outside the cottage was a basket of our laundry & the jar with the bouquet. What a wonderful surprise! When we were leaving, I told Pat to please stay in the business because we will definitely be back!!!

Surprisingly Hospitable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent about four nights at the self serve one bedroom cottage. From the momment we arrived we could not have been treated better. We were welcomed at nine o'clock at night with coffe, tea, and homemade muffins. Even though we had rented a self service, Pat was quick to see we weren't as well prepared as we should have been and made the extra effort to have an absolutely complete and delicious breakfast for us ready in the morning. He was so generous so as to put my laundry on the line for me while I was away and was always on hand when we needed anything but always respectful of our privacy. The most amazing part was as we were just getting ready to leave, we got a flat tire on the way back. Even though we had already checked out , he came out to where we were and was ready to help us and was so compassionate. He gave us extra towels and let my husband take another shower so he could be refreshed for our trek back to Dublin. Thank you Pat! Well worth your time and money to have a great experience.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. Pat was an incredibly gracious host and met all our needs before we even knew we had them. The location was perfect and the space ideal for a family traveling with teens. Everyone had their space.

Could not recommend this place more.

WOW NO WORDS FOR THIS PLACE AND THE OWNERS

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend a stay with Pat & Maura! They were lovely host that we would go back to in a heart beat. I would have loved to stay all summer long with them in their beautiful cottage and lovely grounds. We were quickly welcomed to tea, coffee, and muffins on our arrival which was the perfect welcome to our travel from Dublin. We did day trips to Cliffs of Moher, Dingle loop, Killarney National Park, and Blarney Castle. But the most memorable was just how beautiful and welcoming were the Irish people everywhere we went. Only regret was not to stay longer.

Quaint, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cottage the last two nights of our 12-day trip to Ireland. I selected this cottage for two main reasons: One, for its close location to the Shannon airport, and two, because it appeared to be a more classic, old-world-style Irish home. We were not disappointed. The cottage was very clean, well-maintained, and roomy. Pat was very good to meet us to quickly show us the cottage. We were running behind and were trying to get to the Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle on time. He met us with fresh-baked muffins and coffee/tea at the ready. We were in such a rush, that we weren't able to enjoy his refreshments at that time, but we definitely enjoyed them later! The muffins tasted great for breakfast and we appreciated the coffee/tea as well. We didn't get to meet Maura, but Pat was very accommodating. He provided us with directions for a quick drive to Bunratty Castle and also met me the next morning with the "clothes horse" so that I could air-dry a load of clothes. We weren't able to spend as much time as we would have liked at the cottage, but we did enjoy it. The flowers/garden are simply beautiful! We also took a day-trip to Cork, Cobh, and the Blarney Castle from the cottage. It was a perfect location for day-trips and especially for an early-morning trip to the airport. Thank you, Pat, for your hospitality! We would definitely recommend a stay here!

LOVED OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5

What lovely accommodations!!! Driving into the property was beautiful. The grounds are so welcoming as well as the welcome from Pat. He made us coffee and brought us muffins which was much needed. He showed us everything we needed to know as well as offered suggestions and directions for travel. The accommodations were spacious and I enjoyed all the flowers about the property. I highly recommend a stay with Pat & Maura! Thank you so much. A pleasure meeting you!
