Foley's Cottage is an old (18th century), restored , traditional, stone built farmhouse on a working family farm. The cottage has been restored sympathetically using original and locally sourced recycled materials. The roof timbers for example were sawn from trees grown on the farm.
Also the kitchen units were handmade by a local craftsman, from recycled pitch pine. There are old beams and traditional real pine boarded floors. In addition, the cottage has all modern conveniences.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighbourhood:
Attractions in the area include the Lighthouse and 14 Beaches of the Hook peninsula, Tintern and Dunbrody Abbeys, JF Kennedy homestead and Arboretum, the Dunbrody Emigrant ship in New Ross, Killmokea house and Gardens, Johnstown Castle Museum & gardens, Loftus Hall, National Heritage Park, etc.. There is also fishing, sea angling and horse riding available.

Getting Around
Off-road Parking for several cars is freely available. Foley's cottage is a farmhouse in open countryside so a vehicle of some kind is absolutely essential as there is little public transport in the area. There are several really quiet country roads and lanes locally for walking, cycling, etc..

Other Things to Note
+ More .You’ll love my place because of the silence, the people, the ambiance, the outdoors space, the neighbourhood, and the extensive open country views. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and pets.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cottage, furnished patio ,lawn, yard and driveway.

Other things to note
This is a very quiet country cottage in a scenic, rural area - Rosies Pub ( and the local soccer pitch ) is 1 mile (downhill all the way home). The nearest village with Pubs Supermarket , shops, hardware, restaurant etc. is Campile about 3 miles away.

Location

New Ross, Wexford, Ireland

Foley's Cottage is located, on our family farm, out in very quiet, open, country (near a few other houses), just off a quiet country road, about 7 miles South of New Ross. The birdsong and in particular the dawn chorus is most special. Because there is no light pollution, the night skies are quite spectacular.

I am a semi-retired operating theatre nurse and arable farmer. I like gardening, shopping, foreign travel, music, interior design and chat. I, (and my husband) am most passionate about the restoration of old stone houses (and the conversion of old disused farm buildings to top quality residential use).
