5 Stars for a 3 Star Property - What Does the Irish Tourism Board Know Anyway?!

  • 5 of 5
When I found out that the Irish Tourism Board rated this property with only 3 stars, I was genuinely perplexed. A little research revealed that this is the highest rating that they will attribute to such an accommodation, which sadly, is misleading to those researching whether to stay at Cooga Cottage and here's why: It is fantastic! From the moment you open the gate and walk up to the front door, you experience the extra little touches that the owner has taken to make your stay here flawless. The front garden is decorated with small bushes in the shape of a bear and a duck..the kids will love it! The very large grassy area next to the cottage is manicured and adorned with rose bushes and lawn chairs perfect for relaxing after a day of sight-seeing. There is a long stone driveway leading to a large car park and a convenient entrance into the back of the cottage. The lights are motion-censored and come on automatically making finding your keys a cinch. Inside the cottage, you will find traditional furnishings, a fireplace, and decorative pieces adorning the window sills and walls providing a genuine Irish experience. There is cable, WIFI, and a flat screen TV. Each of the 3 bedrooms are large and spacious with furniture and closets for your personal belongings. The main bedroom is located on the first floor and the other 2 are upstairs….one with a queen bed and the other with two doubles. The kitchen is modern with upgraded appliances and a plethora of cooking tools to assist you in your self-catering needs. The bathroom is immaculate and provides a pretty respectable shower. If you forget something, then no worries! because the owner has thought of it all when it comes to making your stay worry-free. There are amenities already stocked in the bathroom. He even provided converters for my American plug-in devices! I went with a friend to Cooga Cottage, but it is perfect for couples, families with small or teenaged children, or a single looking for a peaceful get-away. The Cottage is centrally-located to the major thorough-ways for longer trips to Dublin or the Cliffs of Moher and only about 30-40 mins by car to Limerick, Bunratty Castle, Adare, and the Rock of Cashel. The town of Doon is within walking distance. The town of Cappamore is a few kilometers down the road and has excellent Irish cuisine. Cooga Cottage is truly an exceptional property - landing 5 stars in my book!

A wonderful depiction of Irish country cottage, my home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in the early morning hours, pleasantly surprised with the owner's earlier email, letting us know we had his permission to check in before the usual afternoon hour posted on-line. So,we were impressed already,as this was certainly a kind gesture after our long flight to get there! We were very grateful for this allowance, as it enabled us to rest a bit and freshen up before we set out to explore the area.

The directions to the Cottage were accurate and easy to follow.Even though it was dark outside when we landed at the Shannon airport and we were driving on the opposite side of the long,curving roads, it was only about a half hour's journey to the property's front door. Very convenient.

Tom quickly filled us in on the history of the cottage - when it was purchased - who was born there - while we walked through each of the rooms and admired all of the little touches that welcomed us in for our vacation. It made us feel at home, listening to how happy the cottage was, as well as the family living there. We could almost hear the laughter of children and the music of the concertina being played in the cozy rooms we stood in.
The cottage was SPOTLESS and had ALL the comforts of home. It was warm and welcoming, with three bedrooms to pick from.

Outside, the yard was a gorgeous landscape of well- manicured lawns and arbors, with gardens still full of flowers, already long gone for the season, back home in America. Roses bloomed against well-kept sheds and in the front garden. There were other flowers that I could not name, tucked into fences or running along the ground beside the cottage.

Cooga Cottage was central to everywhere we had planned to go, so it was a perfect place for these two travelers to vacation in. It was an easy walk into the village, where there were pubs, shops, friendly people, a market, gas station and historical graveyard. It was also close to highways that brought us to Limerick, Bunratty Castle, Dublin, and The Village Of Adare, to name a few.
I would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants a taste and feel of home while in another country. It kept us grounded and made us feel happy and content when we got up and had our breakfast with coffee, or home for dinner and a look through the many pictures we had taken while out for the day.
I will definitely make my way back to Ireland and the cottage that was such a big part of my trip to that countryside.

It's more than a grand cottage--it's home!

It's more than a grand cottage--it's home!
  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Cooga Cottage. Our first visit was two years ago with our 18 year old granddaughter. We had such a lovely time and couldn't wait to return. This visit was with two grandsons, ages 17 and 22. Again, a terrific time was had by all of us.

I enjoyed looking out the kitchen window to the beautiful flowers in the garden. The guys tried teaching themselves hurling on the huge lawn. They also kicked a soccer ball around. (Tom was so kind to leave a soccer ball out for them to use. It was the first thing they did after bringing in their suitcases.) It would have been lovely to eat in the garden at the table/chairs provided, but we were always on the go. (Ah, next time.) The cottage is very conveniently located to so many places. I did cook breakfast almost every day in the beautifully equiped kitchen. There is everything a cook would want--including an apron! It was great keeping our laundry done up--no need to pack so much when you know you have a washer & dryer in the cottage. Actually, the entire cottage is equipped with everything needed--hair dryers, maps, shampoo, Q-tips, soaps bath/laundry/dish, coffee, tea, and spices. Tom even left a container of milk and chocolates for us. He is so thoughtful.

I can't say enough good things about this gem of a cottage and its owner, Tom. As I told him when I booked the cottage this year, "I feel like I'm coming home." It's on my bucket list to take our other six grandchildren to Cooga Cottage in the future.

I was saddened to find the Chinese restaurant in the church next door had closed. Although there are wonderful places to eat nearby, that one had been a special favorite of mine.

We met a lovely neighbor and her daughter while we were by the road looking through the folliage for the sliotar (hurling ball). They were so kind as to drop by later with a sliotar for the guys--her son wanted them to have it. The clerk at the store always asked what I had seen/done during the day when I'd stop in for groceries. There are very friendly people in Doon.

We walked on the nature trail near the cottage for the first time during this visit. It will definitely be something I do on every visit.

I keep a picture of Cooga Cottage on my laptop as a screen saver. Just looking at it whisks me back to Ireland and drops my blood pressure.

I highly recommend this cottage!!

Beautiful and cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Cooga cottage is a lovely place to stay when you want to have a cozy home away from home. The cottage is located in the town of Doon, County Limerick--about a one-hour drive from the airport in Shannon. My sister, my 13-month old daughter an myself stayed for six nights at Cooga cottage from March 23rd through March 29th.

The cottage is meticulously maintained by its owner, who also grew up in Cooga cottage. The owner greeted us and gave us a tour of the cottage. There was a beautiful vase of fresh cut yellow Irish Daffodils in the kitchen window awaiting our arrival. The refrigerator was stocked with fresh milk and yummy chocolate treats were available for Cooga cottage guests. A crib, soft blankets and a high-chair for my 13 month old daughter was also provided.

Everything is well organized and clean in the cottage. When I needed to bring my daughter to the doctor (she had an ear infection), I was able to look through a book that the cottage owner provided about Cooga & Doon which included information for a general practice physician in Doon. My daughter was seen and treated appropriately by the physician in Doon. The book also contains information about the shops and restaurant/pubs in and around Doon.

The property is beautifully landscaped and manicured. The location is beautiful and serene. When I go back to Ireland, I would love to stay at Cooga cottage again.

First time to Ireland, found a treasure!

  • 5 of 5
When we were looking for vacation rentals for a three week visit to Ireland, location was key. We found the location of Cooga Cottage to be perfect for our first week. Once we arrived and settled in, we knew we had found a treasure in location, accommodation and hospitality! Tom is a wonderful host and so gracious to share this old family home! The folks we met in the village were all friendly, warm and welcoming. We were able to comfortably visit many of the fantastic sites in southern, southwestern, and western Ireland and still return at an early enough hour to cook a fine meal in the well equipped kitchen and step out for a pint in our now favorite pub, The Local. Thank you Tom! I would definitely come back to this rental and this wonderful village, and I can't recommend Cooga Cottage enough!
