Other Things to Note
I have two very friendly dogs on the premises. They like to go for walks, play ball and go swimming! But they will leave you alone if you are not interested in them.
Smoking allowed outside:)
From Jun 27 - Aug 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Thanks to Anette's clear driving instructions, we managed to find the place easily. It is a typical cosy cottage dwelling with a sympathetic host located in an area for nature lovers. She has two dogs and lives upstairs so the kitchen is shared. But we had enough privacy.
We had a great visit to Kinvarra! Annette's friend Catherine met us and showed us the house and how everything worked.
The kids really loved the garden with button swing and trampoline. We had a very very comfortable big bed and both our bedrooms were large and had lots of space for our belongings. We felt very at home in Anettes house. I would highly recommend it and Kinvara is a super village. Best lunch yet at The Strawberry Hedgehog Cafe. Thanks Anette!
Annette is a wonderful host and gave us many suggestions to visit in the area. She was away so instead of only two rooms we had the place to ourselves.
The house is more like housesitting than rooms in a house. If you want clean uncluttered rooms, I suggest a hotel. However if you want value for money Annette's house is well suited in terms of location and in a quiet area.
