About Georgina O'Grady

Our story with Chloe’s Country Cottages began 10 years ago when we decided to restore the outbuildings of Stevie’s ancestral home. With little knowledge of what we were doing, but with a wish to preserve the buildings that have been in Stevie’s family for generations we began work. The original stone has been used in all the cottages which was a labour of love for a local man called Sean who hand-picked each stone before expertly placing it. It’s an art which requires a lot of patience and skill for which we are extremely grateful. We were keen to keep as many of the original features as possible, and we managed to preserve the original beams in Uncle Tom’s Barn and the tiny window now in the sitting room where many a horse peeped out their head years ago! Uncle Tom’s Barn and Mill Cottage as they are now have been in place since 2006 and 2 years later we added Rose and Sarah’s Cottages.

We consistently achieve Four Star ratings for all our cottages from Failte Ireland and strive to offer our guests a warm welcome in comfortable surroundings.

We hope that if you choose to stay with us you too will love our cottages and the area.

A little history of the area of Poulmaloe or Piltown as it is sometimes called, covers a small area just outside the village of Whitechurch. The lane beside our cottages which leads to the river Barrow was known locally as ‘the Stage’ as it was used by ships to unload coal and other wares many years ago. It was a busy hive back then and used by locals also to get the boat to New Ross. It is believed that President Kennedy’s grandfather, himself a local living just 2 miles away at the time, would have taken such a boat from here to New Ross to board the ship that took him to America all those years ago and the rest is history as they say!

What makes this cottage unique

Wood burning stove (first bucket of logs are provided free of charge).

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very clean and well presented cottage located down country lanes. Very quiet and peaceful. Having stayed in many self-catering homes we would rate this as one of the best.

Quiet, country house

  • 3 of 5

Quirky barn conversion in that heat and hot water were fussy to use. No water pressure to speak of. Lounge was toasty warm once we got a fire going. Caretakers were very lovely. Directions to house difficult with or without GPS.

Nice place but not four stars!

Erholsame Tage in Irland

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage ist sauber, sehr gepfleg, liebevoll eingerichtet. Georgina und ihr Mann sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Cottage ist insgesamt sehr gut ausgestattet, die Küche mit dem nötigsten Geschirr. Ein Geschirrspüler ist vorhanden. Absolute Ruhe in mitten irischer Landwirtschaft mit Schafen und Rindern. Unsere Kinder, 5 und 9, haben es genossen und liebten vor allem Kater "Tiger" und Bordercolli " Diego". Für Kinder ideal, weil es sehr viel Platz und Bewegungsfreiheit gibt. Ein paar Spielgeräte sind ebenfalls vorhanden. Georgina hat selbst jüngere Kinder, so dass auch keine lange Weile aufkam.

Ein Auto ist zwingend erforderlich. Die Lage des Hauses ist ideal, um von dort aus, die südliche Küste Irlands zu entdecken.

Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen! Vielen Dank Georgina für diesen Urlaub.
