Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jynx has a lovely cottage, nestled in a valley in the heart of old Ireland. Gorgeous views and scenery, and lots of treasures to discover nearby.

    We arrived to find out that our host had to travel back to the USA to attend to an ill relative very early in the morning. Despite this, she made us feel welcome, made sure we had everything we needed for our stay, and we had a lovely chat about her experiences in Ireland she gave me some invaluable advice about driving in the country, and gave us good tips about places to see nearby.

    If you want a cushy "hotel" experience, then you should probably book a hotel instead. But If you want to feel welcome in a beautiful little country house with great eclectic decor, and a wise,friendly, well travelled host with lots of stories, then this is a great place!

    thanks Jynx!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Jynx's place, what a wonderful and peaceful place to share good conversations. The energy of the place is beautiful and the view of the mountains is the best. The banana bread was delicious! Thank you Jynx for your company, I will always keep you close to my heart.

  • Realy nice charming cottage in a nice environment.
    We were really happy to go there and Jynx prepare relly good Banana bread.
    We were just disapointed to not spend more time with Jinx, and in his house.
    Moreover, it's original and it's change than standard accomodation.

    You can book, you won't regret, nice experience.

  • Jynx is a very inviting host. Her banana bread and coffee breakfasts were a hit with us. Her home is located in a beautiful location near to Tipperary. It is in a great location to do day trips to Cashel, Waterford, an Cobh.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and staying with Jynx was lovely. She was very welcoming and started making us a fire the second we walked in. The banana bread for breakfast was delicious and would definitely stay with Jynx again.

  • Despite our late request and arrival to stay at jynx's home she replied very quickly with a yes! So happy she did. Lovely home and host with many stories and memories of her travels to be shown and shared.
    Although I'm a coeliac, my friend got to enjoy her banana bread with every mouthful for me.
    I enjoyed our swap of food allergy stories and advice.

  • We had a really great time at Jynx's house! She is a must-see if you do to Ireland, she let you sit in the sofa for a talk, close to the fire.
    The banana cake was very good!
    Jynx is very talkative, you have a lot of stories to learn from her!
    We enjoyed discover the unusual Santas she makes ;)

  • The house itself is great and Jynx thought of everything. If you have a car, it'd be ideal. But, you can also get taxis to and from the nearby towns for 10-20 euros. And, the loveliness makes it worth the expense. I'd definitely recommend it.
