The house is huge with 4 bedrooms and bathrooms. We have three small children and they absolutely loved the house and the brook that runs past the property. My husband loved the open fireplace (which was lighting on our arrival). All the amenities one needs in self-catering accommodation are provided. The house was so lovely and warm! This property is a great place to base yourself if you want to explore Kinnitty, the Slieve Bloom mountains, Lough Boora and all of the delights of the midlands. It's also only an hour from Dublin or Galway which makes its location ideal.

This cottage is quaint but with every modern convenience that you could ask for and more. We especially loved the wood burning stove which gave our evenings that warm fuzzy feeling. Thank you also for the delicious home made scones and jam you provided for us on our arrival ( must get the recipe ) We will be back soon, Jacquie & Mike Berkshire
