About This Listing
This recently renovated cottage sleeps 5, one double room and one room with a single bed and set of bunk beds. There is a living room/kitchen area with a lovely stove to keep you nice and cosy
The cottage is located beside a working sheep and cattle farm(no pets allowed because of lambing sheep) and Grange Beach is a five minute walk away. The nearest village of Fethard on Sea is a twenty minute walk. If you like the countryside, and the quiet life, this cottage is ideal for you. Self catering cottage which does not not have a TV so you need to get out and explore the many restaurants & beaches on the Hook Peninsula, go fishing, bird watching, kayaking, visit Tintern Abbey and the infamous Hook Lighthouse and dine out in the many wonderful restaurants in the area. The Hook Peninsula has 14 beaches and there are over 10 heritage sites to visit in Co Wexford - The scenery is spectacular and this area is called the Sunny South East for a good reason
Peace and tranquility, fresh air, beach walks, views of Bannow Bay and the Saltee Islands - they can also expect to see the farm animals in the field beside the cottage
Interaction with Guests
We live 2 fields away and because the cottage is beside our working farm our guests can expect to see us out and about on the farm and certainly on arrival
No smoking in cottage please
We booked a 5 day stay at the last minute as we needed some time away to relax and unwind. This is exactly what we got at Sea Bass Cottage. The place is so peaceful and quiet, with only the sound of the sheep, the birds and the sea in the distance.
Grainne welcomed us when we arrived and gave us plenty of advice on what to do & see and where to eat in the area. As an added bonus she also left us milk, eggs from her own hens and home made cakes, which was a nice touch.
The cottage was exactly as you see in the pictures, clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The location was ideal for walking, which we did quite a bit of, with the beach only a few minutes easy walk away. There are also plenty of places to visit in the immediate area.
We really enjoyed what was our first experience of Ireland and we will definitely be back for more. Thanks Grainne for your hospitality and warm welcome.
Sometimes one wants to keep treasures just to oneself - this is one of them. Our stay in Sea Bass Cottage was a real treasure. Beautifully situated in an area that is worth exploring in every detail. And just wonderful hosts, who share their knowledge of history, of the area, of sights, of events so very generously, warmly and humorfully, that we decided we will share the treasure of this experience with everyone looking for a very special place to stay. We enjoyed a cosy, quiet cottage that provided everything one could wish for, including the view over the sea and the bleating of sheep outside the kitchen window.
After being warmly greeted by Grainne on our arrival we spent a lovely 3 days at this fantastic cottage. Perfect for a relaxing break and great location to visit both Waterford, Wexford and the Hook Peninsula. The cottage has all the amenities you would need, and I would HIGHLY recommend sea bass cottage.
Absolutely lovely cottage and location overlooking the sea. Surrounded by fields and loveley scenery - Grainne and her husband are absolutely lovely and very helpful. The cottage itself is gorgeous with a fantastic view from the kitchen window. We will be definitely be back during the summer!

We really enjoyed our one-week-stay at Sea Bass Cottage for new year. Grainne and Liam gave us a warm welcome and were there for us whenever we needed anything. The cottage was simple, clean and nice just as we expected it to be, with sea- and cow-view, only three minutes walk to the beach. Thanks for the great time and all the best for the new born lamb!
At the end of a small road we found a little and lovely cottage, but there was all we need for our stay. It´s very quiet and so we could only hear the sound of birds and the sea. If someone wants to relax and forget the time, it´s the best place.
We had great six days and met wonderful people. Thank you for all to Grainne and her Family. They gave us a lot of information and came over for a talk.
That was my first trip to Ireland. Because this great country and of course very lovely people, i will come again =)
