We felt our stay at Padraig and Sara's place was one of the best values we've ever had through Airbnb. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Sara, but Padraig was so generous! We really appreciated the homemade breads and jam, the fruit, and especially Padraig's help in getting us to Newgrange, Masterboice, and Mellifont. An excellent value and an excellent host!
We enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage Garden very much. Padraig and Sara gave us the feeling of being a part of their family. The conversation in the evening was interesting and pleasant and we learnt a lot about the Irish way of life. The little cottage was perfect to us. The self-made banana cake and brown bread was a warm welcome for us. Thank you for all. Ute & Andreas, Germany
Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir sind angekommen und Padraig hat uns mit selbstgebackenen Kuchen und Brot verwöhnt. Im Kühlschrank war auch noch selbstgemachte Marmelade, Milch, Butter rundum alles was man braucht. Der Unterkunft ist sehr gemütlich, sauber und ruhig. Auch der küche ist ausgestattet mit alles was man braucht. Wir hatten sehr schönes Wetter und konnten sogar auf der Terasse sitzen!! Drogheda ist ein super Ausgangspunkt um verschiedene Ausflüge zu machen. Wir hatten ein Auto aber auch mit dem Zug ist es kein Problem um nach Dublin oder Belfast zu kommen. Der Bahn braucht nur eine halbe Stunde und man ist in Dublin und mit dem Auto sind es zum Flughafen nur 40 Minuten. Das Beste waren aber unsere Gastgeber. Padraig, Sara und die Kinder. Wir, ein Ehepaar mit 15-Jährigen Sohn, haben uns sofort sehr gut verstanden und Marius hat gleich mit den drei Jungs Fussball gespielt. Abends haben wir uns während Padraig für uns super Hamburger gebraten hat, bei einem Irish coffee und Hot irish whiskey über Europe, Irish Music einfach alles unterhalten. Es ist als ob man neue Verwandte hat in Ierland. Wir sind begeistert und würden jederzeit wiederkommen und wir hoffen das die Smiths unser Angebot annehmen und uns in Köln besuchen kommen. Wir hatten tolle 4 Tage und können Rose Cottage Garden wärmstens empfehlen. Thanks from Cologne Helmut,Harmke and Marius
Padraig was an excellent host. Easy to communicate with and kind enough to provide us with his wife's homemade jams and bread upon our arrival. The home is closely located by car to Dublin and nearby tourist sights. There are nearby restaurants with great food as well. The home is located in the garden of Padriag's home and is quite small. With one bedroom and a pullout couch it was crowded for our family of 5 but worked for our needs.
Rose Cottage was a great place to stay for visiting friends in Drogheda. Padraig was an excellent host, explaining how everything worked and providing us with the most wonderful breads and jams, an unexpected delight! The cottage itself was cosy and warm with everything we needed for our stay. Definitely great value. Thanks again Padraig.
We stayed at Rose Cottage Garden for 2 nights while visiting friends in Drogheda. Padraig met us and made sure we knew how everything worked, where everything was and that we were well fed! There was beautiful homemade bread and jams along with all the essentials which made our stay so much easier. The cottage was comfy, cosy and well looked-after. Padraig was welcoming and a great host- we can't wait to go back!
I'm sure I won't be able to say enough positive things about Padraig's back yard cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, self contained, and comfortable. My traveling partner wasn't feeling well for a couple of days so while it poured rain outside we stayed inside, all warm and cosy. There was a great pub only 1km away and Padraig suggested many spots to visit locally and even drew us a perfect map to make sure we could find it all. He and his family were most welcoming and kind, and we were even lucky enough to leave with some of his fantastic homemade jam. If your looking for a place outside of Dublin, near to many sights, and close (30min) to the airport, I would highly recommend the Smith's Rose Cottage.
