What a great trip. This was me and my son's 3rd international trip and 10th new country to visit and we all agreed this was our best trip to date. Wonderful property, village. David and Maria and family were the most gracious of hosts from day one to day 30!

In a small Irish town up a beautiful tree covered road, you'll find this gem of a school house. I suggest you follow David's directions instead of GPS as it's super easy with his directions, but GPS led us astray. We had a couple things come up while staying there, but David was so fast with helping us that in the end, everything was great. Make sure to visit the goats and have a pint in the local pub down the street.

David's white house was perfect for our stay. We had a great time Sunny time (which is rare I heard) in Kilmaganny. The views are awesome from the top. The animals add to the ambience and David is a great person to chat with. Overall our stay was wonderful. The pub down the street is full of friendly locals and the Guinness is pretty good.

David more than made us welcome with our last minute booking. He accommodated from start to finish, including retrieving my passport that I left behind upon departure. The spotless and simple accommodation is very private even though it shares a common, 3-foot wall with David's home, and the setting is serene. I fell in love with his 2 French mountain goats and Lucy, his dog. The property is private with a view of the valley to the front, and pastures to the back. While the setting is rural and tranquil, Kilkenny and many other sites are nearby and within close reach. There is a fun pub within a minute of the rental where we got to meet many of the warm-hearted locals and shared a lot of laughs. We were completely enchanted and hope one day to return.
