We live and work in New York City but fell in love with Ireland on our first visit 10 years ago. Each summer, we visited different areas of Ireland and went on various horse riding holidays. We fell in love with the small village of Gortnacooheen just outside of Portumna. We built this house from the stone that remained from the original buildings on the site. We built it with the idea of one day retiring here. Each year, the garden develops more and each year, we love it more. We hope you will come visit.

It was wonderful to come"home" to Stone Cottage after a day of sight seeing! We could relax by the fire. We enjoyed cooking a few meals and playing cards. The property was beautiful! Portumna was just a short drive to do some grocery shopping and we enjoyed a few pubs! Our time in Ireland was GREAT !

Our Honeymoon Haven

My husband, Glenn and I spent our honeymoon at the Stone Cottage. I spent many hours searching online for the perfect spot for us to spend our two weeks in Ireland and once I found this beautiful place I knew my search was over!
Soaking in the fantastic tub, reading in the sunroom, having morning coffee on the back patio and sinking into the luxurios bed at night were a few of my favorite moments.
We ventured out on day trips to Ennis, Galway City and the Aran Islands and even went to Belfast and spent a night there, then we'd spend a day of rest at the cottage in between trips. The setting was beyond lovely and the design and decor of the cottage made us feel as though we were at home.
Mary was wonderful and helpful. She even helped my daughter's Mother's Day card find me at the cottage!
We loved the village of Portumna and spent time strolling through the shops and castle as well as walking along Lough Derg.
We had a lovely dinner at the Derg Inn in Terry on our last night in Ireland.
This place is truly not to be missed!

Tim and I made our first visit to Stone Cottage three years ago. We have been coming back every year since. I have been traveling to Ireland at least once a year for the past eight years. I have never felt more at home, or more "in Ireland," than when staying at Stone Cottage.

The home itself is lovely, warm, charming, and extremely... comfortable. Its location is wonderful; we love Portumna, and its people. Shopping is easy and the local attractions are beautiful. We are walkers, and Stone Cottage offers us great access to Portunma Forest, and beautiful walks along the River Shannon. We enjoy the ease of Shannon Airport, and direct access to major roads leading to the Burren, and all of Connemara.

We are also very fond of the terrific gourmet kitchen; we love to cook, and have yet to visit a local restaurant, as everything we need is in the home. (Not sure if that works for others, but for us -- we simply love staying in the house, lighting a great fire, and making our own local fare, with wines selected from local stores.)

Most of all, our new friend, Mary, who oversees this great home, is a joy to work with. If we're getting in late, she'll stock the fridge with milk and eggs -- or whatever we need. The home is always a joy, and it's the only vacation stay we've found which includes a fabulous working fireplace AND internet access.

We highly recommend a stay at Stone Cottage... It will change how you visit, and love, Ireland.

Kim and Tim
