Terrific Irish vacation in Ashtree Cottage
Ashtree Cottage was just like the pictures you see. Central location so you can easily travel to all parts of Ireland. Marian was the best Host ever. She checked to make sure we had everything we needed and even bought us coffee that we could not find. We really, really enjoyed our stay. Cottage was very clean and the kitchen was fully equipped. We really enjoyed the Peat Fires in the stove. I would recommend Ashtree Cottage to anyone who wants a great place to stay in Ireland.
Nice place, plenty of space.
