Derek and Adeline were such gracious hosts . Their home was comfortable and welcoming we stayed there before and after our wedding and I wish we could have spent some time with such a fun couple
Ann and manuel
A nice house in a nice little village. The owners are also very nice people, glad to get a coffee machine for us when asked, for instance. The village is very small but there is a convenience shop and a gas station very near the house.
On the downside, I find the house is overpriced, specially in comparison to others in the area. Wardrobes were clearly not enough for the needs of the five of us, and hangers were missing.
We loved this house..Our host Derek went well beyond our expectation and never said no to any of our requests. The house was clean and had everything we expected. I would highly recommend this home to anyone that wants a true Ireland experience...
Derek was really helpful and friendly. The cottage is lovely ,in a good location and on the edge of the village so quite enough.
We loved the house it was easy to live in and gave each of us staying there our own privacy if we wanted it, plenty of room.
We booked the cottage as a group of 6 as we were attending a wedding at the K Club and the cottage was perfect for this. Derek and Adeline were very accommodating and although we did not meet them, this was not an issue at all.
We used the bus service from Dublin which was cheap and easy. However, we had not realised there would not be anywhere to go for dinner except for the K club which was out of our price range. The small shop also does not sell beer or spirits. So our advice for others staying would be to arrive well stocked or you will benefit from having a car. We did however manage to buy everything we needed for breakfasts from the shop and butchers and the local pub was very friendly. The cottage was in a lovely setting although unfortunately we didn't have much time to explore.
We really enjoyed our stay, and would not hesitate to recommend the cottage, especially for anyone attending any events at the K Club. Thank you Derek & Adeline.
Derek and Adeline are some of the most amazing people!! Not only is the home beautiful, historic, and in the cutest "tidy town" I've ever seen, but Derek went above and beyond! It's a small town and very quiet, perfect for a relaxing few days or a chill spot after long days in the city. If you are lucky enough to stay with the Noonan's, maybe you'll get to visit the subsiding bar, Roches! Also, local pub serves best Guinness I had in Ireland! Ask for Des.
Me and my four kids stayed here during our holiday in Ireland. Derek and Adeline were very helpful - as an example, when I had some trouble with my car, Derek called his friend who turned up in 10 minutes and fixed it with the snap of his fingers! We did some day-trips with our car, and visited Dublin with the bus 120 in order to avoid traffic- and parking problems there. There's a small shop for groceries just across the street.
The house was very clean and very roomy.
