IDYLLIC RURAL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We have just left the gamekeepers cottage after 2 weeks of bliss. The house and grounds are totally unique. Kevin, Carole and Emily are great and so helpful regarding things to do and places to see. Kevin is full of great stories and many a morning was spent chatting with him over coffee in the courtyard. Our children loved all the animals, especially the kittens and dogs, aswell as the swing and hammock. My husband loved the woodchopping experience (ask Kevin about this one). We barbequed one night and cooked over the fire in 'the pub' (one of the outhouses) too. All in all it was great. I'm going to miss the cock crowing tomorrow.

A CHARMING PIECE OF IRISH HISTORY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Gamekeeper"s Cottage a few weeks ago. All ammenities were provided, animals were friendly, and Carole and Kevin couldn't have been more helpful. We used the cottage as a base camp, while we drove around the area. The beauty of the Irish countryside, the warmth of the people, and the richness of their history will remain with us always!

A RELAXING FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 nights at the Gamekeepers Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had set out to find somewhere quiet and picturesque to relax in away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin and the main tourist spots; we indeed found that in the wonderful Williamstadt House. Carole and Kevin are great hosts and really friendly and helpful. Our two-year old son had great fun playing with their dogs, feeding the chickens and Kerry the Horse, and not to mention with the tractor. They went out of their way to make us feel really welcome in the cottage and in their home and gave us lots of good tips on where to go sight-seeing and on cafés, food,pubs etc.

The Gamekeepers Cottage is very cosy and comfortable with all mod cons and a wood-burning stove; it also has a good wifi connection too. The walk through their private woodland to the scenic shores of Lough Derg is beautiful. All in all, it’s fair to say that we really happy with our stay and intend to go back for another family break.
See you soon
Gar, Deb and Adam.

SO GLAD WE CAME ...

  • 5 of 5
We were enchanted from the moment we drove through the gate and entered the courtyard at Williamstadt House. The Gamekeeper’s Cottage was warm and comfortable, and it had everything we could need, including a fantastic shower. My 6-year old son Jack was thrilled to help feed the chickens the next day and made quick friends with all the animals, especially Pip, Sally and Walter. The manor house and its history are the genuine article and seem almost untouched by time. We loved exploring the estate and all the buildings, as well as going down the boreen and through the forest to Lough Derg. It was by far the highlight of our trip to Ireland and has surely left a lasting impression of beauty on my son. I’m so glad we chose to stay there and feel we have made wonderful new friends. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time. Thanks for everything, Maureen, Jack, Mary and Michael

Owner's Response: Maureen, Jack, Jerry and Michael! We feel exactly the same about you. The Genuine Article! We're so happy that you chose to stay with us. And Pip, Sally and especially Walter stand at the cottage waiting for Jack to come out and play! He's the perfect age to have Ireland leave an indelible impression on him. When you do return, don't forget to come back and visit us. You are always welcome!

Slan,

A 'HOME FROM HOME' IN IRELAND

A 'Home from Home' in Ireland
  • 5 of 5
We always knew we were going to love Ireland, but I don’t think either of us realised just how much! We felt at home from the moment we stepped off the ferry, and once we arrived at Gamekeeper’s Cottage we felt as if we’d come home. The cottage is a delight and contains all you need for a comfortable, cosy stay. Some of the evenings were cool, but it didn’t matter a bit as the woodburning stove was really efficient and, although Kevin offered several times to fire up the central heating, it really wasn’t necessary. Carole and Kevin were fantastic hosts, welcoming us into their own home as well as ‘our’ cottage, and the rest of the neighbours (dogs, chickens, ducks and peacocks) were endlessly entertaining. If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity in a fantastic setting you need look no further, but you are still centrally placed to travel in every direction to enjoy all that Ireland has to offer. We’ll definitely be going back, and wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. John and Lesley

Owner's Response: And by the way, John and Lesley went back to England, sold their place in Devon, and are living here now in Mountshannon, just down the road from us. They have Jess, one of Sally and Walter's puppies. We're so glad they are here!!

LOVED IT!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at the cottage was amazing! It was like stepping into a Jane Austen story with modern amenities. The house and cottage are charming and comfortable. Our kids had acres of soft grass to run and play in, and the lake is within walking distance. They also woke up every morning to feed the chickens, ducks and peacocks. The hosts Carol and Kevin are lovely people, they welcome you into their home as if you are family, and they have lots of ideas for activities in the area if you are interested. Or you can stay and relax in the hammock in the front yard. The people in the town are friendly and are ready to lend a hand, or just for a chat at the local pub. The wifi in the cottage is very helpful; it enabled us to research places to visit. Carol also has books and brochures of Ireland and local tourist attractions. Dublin and Cork were only a couple hours drive away, and we were able to visit both. Limerick is only half an hour down the road also; however there are many interesting places and castles in the area if you do not want to drive far. When we come back to Ireland there is no other place that we are going to stay. We never wanted to leave!
When asked what their favorite things about their visit my children (ages 5and 9) said that playing with Sally and Pip (Kevin and Carol's dogs) was the best. My husband said the hospitality and small town atmosphere. Myself I loved the people and the drives along the country side, but most of all I loved coming home to the cottage.
