                                                              Cozy Cottage in a Great Location

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We spent several weeks as guests of Marian and John in Ashtree Cottage. They were very friendly and gracious hosts. We found the cottage matched what the description and pictures online showed. The cottage was inviting, well equipped and each of the three bedrooms had en suite bath. Peat (turf) was provided if we wanted a fire. We had requested Internet access and Marian set it up when we arrived. Although it was a little slow, it was adequate for surfing and email, as Marian had told us in a previous conversation. The only negative I can think of is that the sofa and chairs in the living room could use better support for the cushions and we brought that to Marian's attention. Marian and John's farm is located next door and any questions or concerns were quickly addressed. Marian was very helpful in helping us find local music and restaurants. The cottage was on a quiet country road and we took a walk most days, sometimes joined by Buddy, the farm dog. We often ended up at the Shannon River which was tucked in between trees and farmland and very beautiful. You will need a car as it is a drive of 10 minutes to Banagher for groceries, petrol, pubs and restaurants. It was an ideal place to explore central Ireland with monastic sites, castles, gardens, bogs, steeplechase racing, distilleries, canals, and markets. We really enjoyed the sunsets, listening to the birds and watching Marian's flowers bloom. Family members who stayed with us for a week agreed with our assessment of the cottage. We would definitely stay in Ashtree Cottage again and would recommend it to our family and friends.

                                                              Lovely old home in the center of Ireland

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We stayed at Ballycumber House in June/July. It is an easy 70 minute drive from Dublin, mostly on the M4/M6. First, the house is enormous, larger than you might think from the description. Our family of seven occupied only a few of the bedrooms. It is very homey and comfortable, with nice, firm beds, good heating (LOL-irish summers), and large bathrooms. We spent many hours hanging out in (one of the!) living rooms by the peat fireplace, enjoyed cooking in the modern kitchen, playing pool in the games room, or tennis. There is a lovely rock garden, picnic table, and nice walk by the river at the foot of the garden. A five minute walk down the drive brings you to the village, two nearby pubs (limited food but great beer selection), and grocery (Gussies has everything you could need). We drove to Tara and Newgrange, to Galway and Cliffs of Moher, and to Dublin, in an hour, so day trips are easy. There are many whisky distilleries (Tullymore Dew!), monuments (Clonmacnoise is lovely), and small towns in a five to ten mile drive. What we loved: the roominess and just sheer loveliness of the house (have a Downton Abby fantasy-this will give you some idea of what it was like to live in a period house), the location (nice village and people, close to tourist areas for day trips), and of course Connie, who gives you a full introduction to the house and makes sure you are comfortable. She is a great host. Ballycumber House is an old home, so you will need to adjust to turning on heaters one hours in advance for the bath water, taking a bath (no showers), sometimes being chilly on a damp night (turn on the radiators-they work well). If you prefer city life, this is a country home. We genuinely loved the Irish countryside, the privacy, and the comfort of Ballycumber. We WILL be back to stay again.

                                                              Magical Irish Cottage in a Beautiful Setting

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The Bothy is right out of a fairy tale. The kitchen is small but very well appointed, the beds are super comfortable, and there's plenty of peat and logs for a cozy fire every night. The grounds of Birr Castle provide hours and hours of beautiful walks among the gardens, waterfalls and stunning views. You could spend your entire Irish holiday in Birr (several great pubs, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance), but day trips to other great sight-seeing places are easy. Magical!
