Beautifully maintained cottage
Excellent traditional cottage located on the border of County Limerick and County Tipperary. Perfect accommodations for a family trip. Very easy to locate and the home comes equipped with everything you will need for your stay.
Maggie the care taker was very accessible and everything was in good working order when we arrived. The owner was very responsive to questions and stayed in contact. If you're looking for a well appointed place to stay in a quiet community I recommend this home.
It was a pleasure having you and your family, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Maggie had great things to say about you all, and we hope to have the opportunity in the future to have you as our guests once again. All the best, Mary
Wonderful stay in a lovely cottage located on the central west coast of Ireland.
We specifically selected the Curaheen Cottage in Knocklong because of the central location to the areas that we wanted to visit – the Rock of Cashel, the Dingle Peninsula, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Galway. We made the correct choice of locations. Additionally, near Knocklong is the Lough Gur Settlement and the nearby largest stone circle in the world. We arrived late in the day, and Maggie had already stopped by and built a warming fire that was greatly appreciated by all. With seven of us in our party, there was plenty of room. On our first night, we went to dinner at the Magnet. The owner epitomizes C’ead Mile Failte. We arrived within a half hour of closing and volunteered to do take-out. He would hear nothing of that. He was so friendly to us and educated us on the sport of Hurling and very kindly gave our grandson demonstrations of the sport. Needless to say, we have become hurling fans. For us, the Curaheen Cottage and Knocklong were the perfect combination of cottage and location that gave us the flexibility to see some of the beautiful areas of Ireland’s central and west coast.

This charming cottage is just the ticket for doing day trips around the SW of Ireland.
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the countryside and the very friendly, welcoming people of Ireland and our little "neighborhood". Everything we needed was provided and beds were comfy. Would love to stay again one day!
So glad to hear you enjoyed both your stay at Curaheen and your time in Ireland. It was our pleasure to have you, and we do hope you come back and stay with us again. You can never have "just one" trip to Ireland!! Best, Mary
Charming, bright, clean and well-equipped.
Our two-week stay was so memorable. First, the "manager" welcomed us, even built our first fire. She offered her "help in any way", with maps, directions, etc., and her husband even changed a tire for us.
We traveled North, South, East and West - to Galway, the Cliffs, to Dingle, to Waterford, the Mills, stopping for dinner, or a "Bar Night" for Irish music - and always the Cottage and Maggie welcomed us home. The warmth of the Irish people and the beauty of the Land will stay with us in memory for a long while.
I have already recommended this "Irish Cottage" to many friends - and we hope to return.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We are always so happy to hear that our guests had such a great time in Ireland and enjoyed their trips so much, especially their stay at the cottage. Maggie is the best and really goes out of her way to make sure that everyone is as comfortable as possible and feels at home in the cottage. There's no one quite like her!!!
We look forward to having you as our guests again someday at Curaheen cottage and thank you for the recommendations. All the best, Mary
Beautiful cottage. So spacious and clean
Beautiful cottage, we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you 😊
A Lifetime of Memories
My family, three generations of us, had an absolutely magical 2 weeks in Ireland in July. The Curaheen cottage, #7, was perfect in every way. We took day trips all over the country and experienced as much as we could in that time. My "must see" was Ballyhaunis in County Mayo where my grandparents were born, and the bonus was Knock Shrine. We discovered a perfumery in the Burren, with a little cottage/ tea shop like a page out of "The Hobbit". We went from Dingle to Waterford, even a day at the beach in Dunmore East, Galway to Dublin, music sessions in Limerick, Tipperary, Tralee and Dublin as well as the local pub in Knocklong with music on Sunday nights. We loved the castles and the younger ones enjoyed climbing everywhere. My grandson had just graduated from high school so this was his first taste of the world. The local park in Knocklong was a "must" for the 5yr old, who was delighted with the sheep, especially when they surrounded the car in Dingle. My other grandmother was from Kerry so we explored there as well. The cottage was such a welcome sight every night and we rested well. It was a grand holiday indeed. These memories will last a lifetime. I am so grateful to have found this "home base".
We are delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed your trip to Ireland and your stay at Curaheen cottage. It sounds like you really covered alot of territory in your two-week stay including a trip back to the "ancestral home." Thanks for adding some of the places you visited as they will be great tips for others including myself!! I hope this won't be your last visit to Ireland, and we would welcome having you all as our guests again. Best, Mary
