Lovely four night break in delightful setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal – we came with our daughter, son-in-law and one year old Grandson to visit extended family living close by. The facilities were of a high standard and everything was in good working order with lovely views enhanced by the new born cattle & lambs.

Amazing!!! Calm laid back country setting!!

  • 5 of 5

We are ready to go back already!!!

We journeyed through amazing places in Europe during our 16 day adventure but NONE of them topped Ireland and the fantastic home we stayed at while we were there!! We loved the calm country setting and the beautiful home! We loved being able to cook and feel like "locals." Pat and Una were such great hosts. We loved hearing the "bed time" stories about Ireland and it's people from Pat LOL. Don't get me wrong if you like to vacation in peace and not be disturbed they will not bother you but we loved hearing about the economy, jobs and how people actually live their lives in Ireland. The property is a little outside the city but so worth it to get closer to the actual countryside of beautiful Ireland! We did not mind the drive to get to all the amazing places we went to on our stay in Ireland because we could look at amazing scenery and at the end of the busy day of sightseeing we got to come "home" to such a peaceful atmosphere!! We LOVED LOVED LOVED our stay and cannot wait to go visit Pat, Una, and their adorable puppy dogs Roxy and Suzy again!

Thank you for everything! We loved our stay!!

A six star beautiful new home with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express the beauty of this home and the warmth of our hosts! The place is even more beautiful than what a photo can capture. The home is new, with all the modern amenities you need for a comfortable stay. It is located near accessible routes to explore many parts of Ireland. It is only 45 minutes from Dublin and close to the major highways for day trips. Waking up to the beautiful views made morning coffee a delight. My wife and 3 grown children found the home very spacious (3 large bedrooms and 2 beautiful full bathrooms). A plaque near the front door reads, "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" and this proved true for us. Thank you Pat and Una for your hospitality!

Hard to imagine how it could be better

  • 5 of 5

After concluding a six-week tour of much of western Europe, we can honestly say that this location was the best place we stayed, including hotels, B&B's and three other similar kinds of rentals. Pat and Una are charming and helpful, and the house is simply awesome. It's very clean, homey, well-stocked with modern appliances and has pretty much everything you need, including two bathrooms, TV's in just about every room, and a view of the Irish countryside that simply can't be beat. With only the two of us, it felt like we were in a mansion. A perfect place to bring kids as well, due to the multiple bedrooms and bathrooms and safe place to play outside, all situated behind an electric gate.

You certainly need a car, but if you're planning on touring more than Dublin, it's a perfect location. While you have more of a drive into the city than if you rented inside the city, it also puts you nearly an hour closer to many of the great attractions throughout Ireland.

I can't think of a single negative thing to say about it, unless you don't like cows, because part of the view from the window is the field on which a bunch of cows often graze. But there is no livestock smell or any negative whatsoever regarding that. It also features a beautiful white horse, a bunch of rabbits, and two friendly little dogs as well, and the dogs don't bother you at all unless you chase them down to give them a belly rub.

This is the kind of location that makes services like VRBO so compelling. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again no matter where we needed to be in Ireland.

A wonderful vacation in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from our vacation and honestly don't have enough good things to say about this cottage. It's difficult for me to describe it as a cottage, as that word evokes cramped, dark and rustic, but this home is spacious, light and modern. It is simply a wonderful place to stay. While here we did most of our own cooking, and shopped in the very convenient town of Kilcullen. There is an excellent meat market there which was recommended to us by Pat and Una, as well as a grocery, and vegetable shop. If you don't feel like cooking during your vacation, there are also plenty of places to find tasty food. This home is really an exceptional place and lacks nothing. The view is utterly restful, the owners are friendly, kind and very helpful. There is excellent (secure!!!) internet service, for those who need it. All appliances function perfectly. The beds are comfortable, and the showers splendid. A car is required, but I would think a car would be required most anywhere outside of Dublin proper. This was an ideal place to stay, and we would happily stay here again; it is indeed an oasis of calm and serenity.

Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The home is centrally located for sight seeing near Dublin, Kilkenny, and Wicklow Mtns. It is kept exceptionally clean, the beds are comfortable and the house is warm. It has very good internet, which is hard to find. Loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone!
