Rustic. traditional quirky and quaint, Ivy cottage provides a great space to escape and chill but has local, natural and cultural facilities within easy reach, a 20 min walk to Tintern Abbey and ruins and to the local pub, but there is some great cycling too fishing and walking.

All facilities including washing machine, slow cooker, microwave, plus access to books.
We have a friendly neighbour who will show you around on arrival and give you some great tips on where to go during your stay in Saltmills, she is located in the yellow bungalow opposite her name is Lesley.
Local pub, estuary and the peace and tranquility of the natural and historic surroundings are the best bits, plus the garden space.
Remote so you will need a car, but bring your bike this is a great place to explore the area!

Interaction with Guests
I am a sometimes away from the property, but feel free to contact me at any stage. Lesley and Dave who live in the yellow bungalow opposite manage the property when I am away so feel free to ask any questions! they are very friendly!
Warm hospitality and great neighbours with charm!
Secured and gated parking space enough for 2 cars. This is a great location for cycling so if you have a chance to bring your bikes, it's definitely worth it. Public transport is not in abundance. There are some great pubs and restaurants in Duncannon and Fethard plus beaches towards Hooks Head. Remember to visit Tintern Abbey which is on the doorstep.
Other Things to Note
There is a bin provided in the kitchen for recycling and general waste, please take rubbish away with you if you have the opportunity, although this sometimes can be a bit of hassle when you are staying for a short period but if you can dispose of the recycling - there is a recycling bin next to the pub in the village, please ask Lesley or Dave for advice on this.
Please leave as you find - would be greatly appreciated thank you and enjoy your stay!
Characterful and traditional, Ivy Cottage is nestled in the Bannow Estuary easy walk to beach and pub!
About the Host, Paula
I just wanted to apologise to all people that have bookings in June at our wonderful cottage. It is really sad for me to have to do this, but where we issues with our boiler causing damage to the kitchen, which we are not sorting out so it's back up and running for July. Thank you for reading. On a general note, I love natural places and to be close to the sea, I have a great sense of adventure and have always loved to travel. I hope I have created the perfect get away in Ivy Cottage, Saltmills. Ireland has always felt like my first home so it is great to have somewhere to escape and enjoy this magical place.
Those of you interested in chilling but being close to the sea and knowing there is a pub close by with good company and music, you will, like me, enjoy staying at Ivy Cottage.
