Ideal Vacation Base in the Cork area
We all very much enjoyed our stay at Ivy Bridge. The cottage was even more spectacular then we had anticipated. It was warm and cozy, very well equipped and our hosts could not have been more helpful. David gave many ideas on restaurants in the area, and also on routes to take as we explored the area so as to maximize our experience.
Beautifully furnished and designed cottage with ample space
Lovely cottage with beautiful furnishings. We had a relaxing stay, with good use of space. Generally good value with maximum guests staying, although oil-fired heating is dear and electricty, gas and oil costs were high for the stay. A beautiful spot and owners very helpful
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us at Ivy Bridge Lodge. It is disappointing, however, to read your comments on the heating, gas and electricity charges. This is calculated by meter reading: you pay for what you use. However, costs can escalate quickly, particularly if not vigilant with electric heaters. Likewise the number of people accommodated will affect charges. Accommodating 8 people (over house quota and without permission) does affect fuel usage (e.g. showers).
Wonderful home and host
We absolutely enjoyed our stay in Mallow and wish we would have had longer to stay. The home is set up with every amenity needed for a wonderful stay such as blow dryers, iron, washer and dryer, clothes line, kitchen utensils, appliances, etc. To top it off there was even a baby grand piano. It is very convenient to restaurants,pubs, grocery stores, etc. You are only minutes from Blarney Castle and Cork City. David our host was wonderful as well. He gave us a detailed description of things to see while on our trip to County Kerry, restaurants to eat at, and pubs to visit. He was very interesting to talk to and was so knowledgeable of the area. His hospitality really made our time in Ireland so enjoyable. He is a fabulous host with a fabulous home. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home and for the most gracious hospitality that you gave us.
Your house your truly magical!
The house was very comfortable and easy to use. David and Eilis are wonderful and made us feel as though we were more than visitors for our time there. From the horses to the chickens and dogs - we truly felt welcomed and a part of the daily life of the equestrian center. We even got to see the horses getting new shoes! I truly cannot say enough about our stay! I highly recommend your house to everyone I show our pictures to because we felt we were family instead of visitors!
Amazing Ireland Experience
The lodge was amazing with an Old Ireland cottage feel. Enjoyed a fire every night and a nice feeling of home . The hosts were very helpful and friendly. A short drive to Cork and other places for sight seeing. A quick trip to Mallow for any supplies, but still out in the country enough to enjoy the landscape.
Favorite Vacation Rental Ever
We booked this property back in June 2013 for a week, and at the time I tried to post a review but the site was having problems. (It wouldn't let me enter my original dates, so that's why it says June 2016) Well, it was so GREAT, here I am years later still thinking about this vacation and the amazing owner, David. We brought our three kids and my uncle along for this vacation to Ireland to trace our roots, and when I saw the thatch roof online, I was sold. We arrived to a very clean and well stocked home that is so much better than the pictures even show. It comfortably slept all of us and many evening were spent by the fireplace with hot cocoa and laughter as we relived the days events. David met us at the rental and showed us everything we needed to know, built us a fire, plus sat with us for several hours (at our request) while we plotted out our Irish road trip. The house is in the most picturesque setting, it's like a fairy tale. The kids had so much fun seeing all the animals in the barn and David even gave my equestrian daughter some riding lessons. Really, this review is even more about the host than the gorgeous house, because David is the epitome of an excellent host. It felt like we had (have) family in Ireland!! If you book this property, you will not be disappointed. This is a vacation we plan to repeat in the future, and we rarely love a place enough to want to visit it again. We will definitely try to book this place when we return!!! 10 stars:)
