Grainne and Sally (the caretaker) were great hosts. They supplied us with so much information about the house, the area and beyond all of which was both necessary and useful. The house itself was fantastic - warm, welcoming and with everything we needed even some food supplies. We stocked up on food in Thurles before we got to the cottages as advised by other reviewers. It's location was rural which was what we wanted and central for driving to Cork/Blarney, Waterford and Limerack. Had a great meal at the Horse and Jockey pub in the town of the same name and great drinks at The Arch in Thurles. We really enjoyed our Winter stay and thought it would be a lovely place in Summer sitting outside at the table and chairs.
A wonderful cottage in rural Ireland/Tipperary that has all you need for a great stay. Location is a good base to travel in the area. The facilities and beds/bedding very nice. Plenty of room for larger groups or families with children. When we were there was no TV or WiFi which didn't bother us but is important to know if you rely on that stuff. I didn't meet Grainne but contact with her was excellent and the local caretaker Sally was very nice. This is an excellent choice if there are a few of you and your touring the area. Would also recommend to friends/family who want to get away from it and get a real rural Irish experience rather than touristy hotels and towns etc. Highly recommended.
We had wonderful time! The hosts are so friendly and lovely, helped us in everything ! We are so thankful and surprised that we recommend everybody to rent this house. Very good communicated, really close to a lot of supermarkets,restaurants, gym, beautiful botanic gardens, quiet and friendly neighborhood. All the rooms are very ample and comfortable. Everything was simply perfect !
Will never forget this experience.
I would love to spend many months living in this wonderful cottage! We only stayed one night but Grainne was so welcoming and accommodating, even leaving us some items for breakfast.
The bed was so comfortable and I had the best night's sleep there. I loved the way the entire place was decorated, it feels very bright sunny and comfortable.
I really can't say enough good things about this place or our host.
Pro-tip: It is about 30 minutes or so from Cashel, which had a decent grocery store. I didn't see any others between there and here so if you are cooking in (which is great), I'd be sure to find a grocery store before you get into Upperchurch.
A nice, spacious house close to both the city (walking distance but public transport right around the corner) and the airport. Grainne was a fantastic host, providing great recommendations for local restaurants/pubs and letting us know everything about the house. Would recommend to everyone coming to Dublin . Thanks again Grainne!
Had a lovely stay in the turf burning cottage and can definitely recommend it if you are looking for a quaint cottage stay. There is plenty of space and the cottage has all mod cons while still retaining an authenic feel. The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything I think a family might need for a relaxing holiday.
I wanted to visit the Ireland that the people on the tour bus do not see. I found "the turf burning cottage" that peeked my interest. My planning began months befors the actule trip would begin. Grainne was so helpful at every step along the way. I don't do computers well and when the AIRBNB web site defeated me Grainne walked me through the difficult parts. Sshe sent me information about the area and let the town folk know we were comming. Upperchurch is a very small village. If you want to get away from the city this is the place to be. The cottage was very laarge and comfortalbe. My travel compains changed several time during the planning process and three months before I was to go I got cancer. So my trip began the day after I completed radiation therpy. Grainne kept in touch every monthe prior to our trip. It ended up there were three of us at the cottage. We had way too much room. I would not hesitate to have as many as 8 people staying at the cottage. More if you have children. I knew the cottage was in the country but I did not know it was a mile up a one lane read with headges on both sides. That really added to the Ireland experience. We did day trips to Cliffs of Hoher, Waterford, Cork, Rock of Cachel and many other places. It was great to come "home" every night. We ate most of our meals at the cottage. There were some staples there, we bought potatos, milk and eggs. Con Ryan spent a day with us showing us around the area and sharing his stories. And your visit would not be complete without going to 'Jim O'the Pub" on Thursday night. You will love every minute of the evening, but bring your sining voice.
The house is very comfortable, tidy and with everything you need to enjoy a pleasant stay.
The house was lovely and ideally situated only a mile or so from the City but in a pleasant quiet (website hidden) was large with plenty of room for the seven guests and sufficient on street parking.Grainne was an excellent host who not only provided a much appreciated welcome pack but made us feel at home from the outset. She made sure that we had more than enough information prior to arrival and was more than flexible regrading arrival/departure times.I would definitely recommend Grainne and her house to other Airbnb members
The cottage in Upperchurch was a highlight of my family trip in Ireland. It was an excellent value for the price and the best tasting water of all the places we visited in Ireland. A very peaceful and relaxing environment and a great place to stay with children. The location was great for day trips to some great locations. The beds were great and everything about our stay was excellent. Next time I come I will stay for longer. Grainne's is a great hostess and i hope to return.
Very friendly, easy going and clean, they were a very nice presence to have around and interesting to talk to. We highly recommend them to other hosts and they always welcome back!
Great guests, lovely couple. Good communication from the begining, nice, quiet and tidy. Definitely, they are everything you want in an airbnb guest.
Grainne was very fun to deal with! She ended up not being able to visit but her funny and open nature made all the booking process more enjoyable and it would have been great to have her company. She and her family shall be welcome in the future!
Grainne is an excellent host & a pleasure to interact with. Recommended!
