Interaction with Guests
Very friendly welcoming yet unobtrusive host.
Loves meeting new people sharing stories/travel info' and cups of tea/coffee! Respects the needs of guests whether it be privacy and total rest/seclusion or friendly shared interaction.... It's always the guests' choice.
We are lucky to live in this beautifully scenic area where the air is sometimes positively effervescent! And the moon when full casts a soft glow on the Comeragh Mountains.
The surrounding area is ideal for a stroll, some serious mountain or coastal walks, cycling, fishing and has some beautiful beaches for swimming or picnicing... namely Clonea-Ardmore-Stradbally-Youghal and a bit further to Tramore, Dunmore East etc.
The nearby town of Lismore is host to the international Travel Writers festival in August and the harbour town of Dungarvan hosts a now world- famous food festival in April plus numerous traditional/jazz music and cultural festivals throughout the year. There is theatre and cinema and restaurants to suit every taste.
The Historic Viking city of Waterford is 30 minutes away. The drive along the Copper Coast is breathtaking.
We are situated in a very quiet, peaceful, rural village surrounded by open space yet within a short drive to numerous amenities.
I look forward to helping guests enjoy it as much as I do.

Margaret is wonderful and we loved to meet her, she is warm and generous she made us feel at home and did everything to make our Journey unforgetable! The appartement is nice, confortable and big and we had everything we needed! Margaret's cottage is adorable. We highly recomend her and she deserves the gold medal
We really enjoyed our time here. Plenty of privacy but also enjoyed our visits with Margaret and Molly. Closed out a 2 month Europe tour here and the quiet and peacefulness were exactly what we were looking for. Place is spacious, kitchen provided everything we needed to prepare several meals here. Plenty of places to see and visit within close driving distance. If it's the correct time of year I'm sure Margaret will offer you fresh organic produce from her garden!
Margaret was a gem! She welcomed us warmly and is a friendly, fun-loving person with whom we immediately felt comfortable. The accommodation was just perfect! It was a spotlessly clean, well equipped apartment and we had all we could ever want including parking for our car. Beds were comfortable, the shower worked well and the kitchen had all we needed, including a washing machine and a dishwasher! There were lovely comfortable chairs in the sitting room. The apartment is in a rural location so the peace and quiet was welcoming after the rush of normal daily life. We strongly recommend this accommodation.
I had a great time in Kilbrien with Margaret making my stay extremely enjoyable and comfortable. The house is impeccably clean and spacious with a lot of natural light. It was the exact countryside retreat I was hoping for. Thank you for being a lovely host Margaret!
This is what airbnb is all about to me. . Finding unusual homely haunts you would never find on the normal circuit. Margarets place was a cool little suntrap in the wilds of kilbrien. Though next to a thatched cottage the house in which we stayed felt really continental. . A real retreat. We had everything we needed and Margaret was a special host who is well traveled, easy to chat to and eager to please while being non invasive. I will be back
Margaret was a really accommodating host who took me in last minute and extremely understanding with my check in time. Great country side views and clean listing, I'll hopefully be back here again!
Eine sehr schöne, großzügige und helle Wohnung in idyllischer Landschaft.

Margrat ist eine offene und herzliche Gastgeberin und wir haben und sehr wohl gefühlt bei ihr.
