Hi There - just respect the house as it were your own - in so far as possible please leave it as you found it. We use oil for central heating. In winter - a generous daily allowance will be allowed for central heating. Once your daily allowance for the central heating has been used it will be necessary to apply a surcharge for any additional usage. This will be explained on your arrival. In summer there is little need for central heating.
Respecting the house will ensure that all will enjoy their stay.
Any problems with any thing don't hesitate to contact me.
'A problem shared - a problem solved'.
Many thanks Fi
5*: The cottage was LOVELY, as were the hosts. The quiet cottage is a converted *huge* double/triple garage located next to the main house at 90 degrees, and so it has lovely huge double-glazed windows on three sides, with one of the bedrooms looking out over peaceful arable fields.
The fridge was very well stocked as a bonus, and the kitchen had every utensil and cookware possible. We stayed here for 2.5 days and ended up having great fish n'chips from the nearby pizza/chippy/petrol station (!)
There are TVs on both floors, and the kitchen/living area one has a USB port to allow a USB stick with TV/Music to be easily controlled by the TV remote.
We felt very secure in the cottage, with all the windows and doors being of a modern construction, and the entry to the driveway being controlled by a powered gate controlled by a code.
One point to note is that for larger groups, the cottage's bathroom is is only accessible en-suite from the master bedroom.
We absolutely loved staying at Brendan and Fi's, they were extremely helpful ,the cottage had everything we needed plus more. The fridge was stocked with food to get us through till the next day . A lovely quiet rural retreat , yet so close to Kildare . Thanks once again Brendan and Fi. Our best accomodation do far .
We had a wonderful stay at Fi and Brendon's home. What a wonderful place... Very quiet and peaceful. Brendon welcomed us and explained everything. They were extremely generous with provisions left in the house for us to use. The bed was very comfortable and the house warm and cosy. We enjoyed exploring the local area away from tourist areas. It was an easy drive to Dublin airport from there. We would highly recommend.
Both Fi and Brendan are the ideal hosts. They are considerate, warm,friendly and knowledgeable. A fantastic welcome pack was provided on our first night! This accommodation was spotless, had everything we needed and more. A great spot to stay being in the country and yet close to Dublin.
We had a wonderful weekend at Fi and Brendan's house. We did not get to meet Fi but Brendan made us feel extremely welcome. He gave us some information on local sites to visit and encouraged us to contact him should we require any further assistance. They also stocked the fridge with all the essentials for breakfast the next day. Overall we had a very positive experience and would highly recommend staying with Fi and Brendan.
Wonderful experience. Place very well kept, super clean and comfortable. Nicely lit up (Christmas period) and decorated. Our hosts looked after us and were very attentive to details. Accomodation offered all neccesities; the space and comfort we needed. thanks for your time, the information you gave us. Highly Recommended
About the Host, Fi
I live in rural Kildare which is about an hour from Dublin.
I know the area well because I was raised in the local parish.
Our house is next to the one advertised and we have 2 pet dogs.
Kildare is within easy travelling distance to race courses [Curragh, Punchestown and Naas] and scenic attractions. We are just an hour away from the famous Glendalough, 10 minutes from the Market Town of Athy and close to Kildare and Newbridge. The area is steeped in history. The Japanese Gardens and the Irish National Stud along with Kildare Village Outlet Shopping are located adjacent to Kildare town.
