Peaceful week

  • 5 of 5

We (three adults, a teen, and a child) stayed in the cottage as our home base as we explored Ireland by rental car each day. We took trips to Limerick, Cashel, Gallway, and more. Every evening, we were excited to get back "home" and relax. I would recommend building in a few days of downtime at the cottage, as you will enjoy playing or reading in the garden to take a break from touring. The owner was helpful and friendly and supplied everything we needed (aside from food) to make our meals. Would definitely return.

A Perfect Irish Cottage Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Cooga Cottage was above our expectations! Tom was very helpful and answered any questions we had. He even told us of a nearby mechanic when we had a flat our second day there. The cottage was warm, welcoming, and you felt like you lived in the Ireland countryside. Doon is a central location to many attractions in Ireland including Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Cliffs of Moher, and the Rock of Cashel. We highly recommend Cooga Cottage to anyone!

we arrived after a pleasant drive from Dublin to find Cooga Cottage was exactly as depicted in the listing on HomeAway.

Tom Keogh was there to greet us and introduce us to his cottage and to tell us about the homes history in his family.

Tom has ensued that everything is supplied to make this a home away from home and the only regret we had was when the time came for us to leave and continue our travels.

A great pleasure to meet you Tom and we have already told our friends and our travel agent about your lovely Cooga Cottage

LIke home away from home, only better!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a blissful 7 days at Cooga Cottage. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was a special place. Thomas, our host and owner of the cottage, was gracious and welcoming. The cottage is spacious, very well appointed and immaculate, and has virtually everything anyone might need. Travel books and novels line the walls of the den, all three bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable, even the bathroom is stocked with an amazing array of toiletries. Satellite TV and Wi-Fi worked very well and without any glitches. All the credit goes to Thomas, who obviously has made it a top priority that his guests have an outstanding experience during their stay at his cottage.

Doon is a small, quiet town filled with and surrounded by farms and pastures. Yet it is only a 30 minute drive to downtown Limerick, with its shops, restaurants and bustling streets. We had no difficulty using the cottage as our base for day trips to Kilkenney, KIllarney, Lough Gur (very close), Limerick, the Cliffs and much more. Even Galway was an easy drive under 2 hours.

This was our first trip to Ireland and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Thank you, Thomas, for allowing us to spend a week in your family's cottage - we enjoyed it immensely and hope to be back again in the future.
