About Anna Skrine
Anna's family has been living at Butlerstown Castle for many generations. It has been her wish for many years to be able to share the tranquility and beauty of the place with others. Her husband Jim worked for years in London restoring heritage buildings, and running an architectural salvage business. He has done all the restoration and repair work himself to the two cottages (originally a 1600s cowhouse). Anna works with complementary therapies - and organizes workshops at Butlerstown.
Anna Skrine purchased this Cottage in 1780
Why Anna Skrine chose Tomhaggard
We moved back to Anna's family home some years ago. People often say it is like stepping into another world coming here, it is so peaceful! The castle, or Tower House, is remarkable in that it is in such good original condition. We are a mile from the sea as the crow flies and there are a number of good beaches within a 10 or 15 minute drive. There are also places of great natural and wild-life beauty nearby, such as Tacumshin lake, and the world-heritage Saltee Islands which are accessed from Kilmore Quay. Anna has a range of pets, including donkeys, free range hens and sheep.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are just 20 minutes from Wexford, and15 minutes from Ireland's main port, Rosslare Harbour. There is good access to excellent restaurants, pubs - the Lobster Pot is a well known pub/restaurant - riding stables, Johnstown Castle museum, Kilmore Quay fishing village and golf courses.

Where do I start ? It’s the Best Holiday we have ever had. Just 15 minutes from Rosslare & Wexford, a perfect beautiful quiet tranquil home to enjoy the South East of Ireland. Our hosts Jim & Anna are the kindest most helpful hosts ever, we had a tour of the amazing castle, they even looked after our dogs so we could go to Dublin for the day, nothing was too much trouble.
We loved our home which 7 of us stayed Limited WiFi which for a few days killed us but we grew to love not sitting on our phones, instead we fed the donkeys chickens sheep and had quality family time. Ollie the donkey and myself bonded and I’m going to miss him so much even though he kissed me and pinched my gold earring lol
You need a car... we had 2 and we visited the lovely beaches towns church’s Pubs cafes castles restaurants theatres... we didn’t stop and was blessed with the sunny weather, but I’d go back in the winter with the open fire, warm baths, and cosy front room.
This isn’t your standard accommodation, it’s special and we really can’t wait to return.
Anna Jim Thankyou so much xx
This holiday was so important to us, bringing my mum back home to Ireland and it couldn’t of been more perfect xx
Geschmackvoll eingerichtetes historisches Gemäuer, sehr ruhig gelegen. Das Anwesen hat mehrere schöne Gärten mit landestypischer Bepflanzung. Ausgesprochen freundliches Vermieterpaar. Schafe und Esel auf der angrenzenden Weide. Wir wären gern länger geblieben. Adapter nicht vergessen!
