Great little cottage for two (although it has a double bed and a single in the one room, this would only suit a few families really).

Our dog loved the garden - a Border Collie needs to have space to run around in, and this ticked all her boxes!

We did wake up early, as the blinds do not cut out much light (we stayed in midsummer). Solution might be to wear blindfolds - in which case you would need one for your dog too, and train it to wear it. Only joking about the dog, of course.

We liked the area very much, but found the dining out to be nothing special, even at the nearby hotel, although they did have trad (i.e. Irish) music on, which we enjoyed very much.

Our favourite pub was the Cartoon Inn at Rathdrum. Every wall is a work of art, and the 'craic' is good too. Avoca is well worth a visit - its alter ego is, of course, Ballykissangel. Interesting mill to visit (free! - so go round twice!).

Talking of art, Rod Coyne has an interesting gallery just south of Meeting of the Waters; you can meet the artist and discuss his work, and buy it too. Best done on the spot (we put it off until we returned to the UK, due to space requirements in the car - the dog had the whole boot space to herself in our Honda Jazz.

Glendalough is within easy reach. We were last there 45 years ago, and much has changed - for the better - lots of car parking, excellent visitor centre and good paths everywhere.

Anyway, back to the cottage. At first sight, we thought we had a problem with the hot water supply, as the immersion heater didn't work. When we re-read the household instructions more carefully on the morning after we arrived, we found the switch - behind the breadbin. End of problems.

Local customer service was excellent, as we did have a problem with something totally unrelated to the accommodation itself. I found a KITTEN at the front gate one morning - obviously an abandoned waif, and also obviously too young to be away from its mother. We were in a quandary - we couldn't look after it and keep it, nor could we just abandon it. All was solved by the lady caretaker who lived round the corner - she took it in to join her other 4 cats, bottle fed it, and (last we heard) it was doing well.
