                            This was our first trip to Ireland and we could not have been more pleased with the cottage and barn. It was a perfect combination of providing us with the look and feel of the traditional Irish cottage and the modern conveniences we have come to expect. Joan and her family were terrific and make the stay an absolute joy for the whole family. I would highly recommend this property to anyone going for a visit to the Emerald Isle.

                            This was the most wonderful stay we have had in all of Ireland! Joan could not have been nicer, both the cottage and the Thatched were beautifully decorated. We rented both and we're truly taken back with the cottage because there aren't any photos other than the living room. It is so charming and cozy! The Thatched is exactly what you see in the pictures, now image a turf fire! All the beds were very comfortable and the linens were soft and well appointed. Our experience was wonderful and we can't say enough but you won't be disappointed! There were a total of nine in our group ranging in age from 5-55yrs and we all just loved it!!! It is so close to the village and has so much charm- from it's beautiful lane, funny & friendly dog, to it's beautiful landscape. Just Brilliant!!!

                            Brought my 4 children and parents to Ireland to deliver my oldest to University of Limerick (just 15 minutes away). My parents stayed in the converted barn, while my children and I stayed in the cottage. If you want the most authentic Irish experience possible, stay here! Joan has taken such care to decorate these well appointed cottages so they greet you with a warm Irish embrace. You'll feel like you've "come home"! Dublin, Kinsale, Cashel, Dingle, Cliffs of Moher... all within a couple hours drive.

                            I cannot imagine a more wonderful "Ireland" experience than the one that we had at this cottage. I spent 6 days here with 2 teenagers in late July 2012, and we loved every minute of it. It's the kind of place that you want to share with your friends and the world, because its so beautiful, and yet at the same time you want to keep it your own secret place. The cottage is wonderful in every regard, and as pretty as the pictures are, they don't do it justice, because they can't capture the spirit of the place, which is half its beauty. And then of course, there are the hosts, who are extremely kind, welcoming and helpful, and they're there if you need them (afterall this is a picturesque working farm) and yet they offer complete privacy. It's just a wonderful, wonderful place and I hope that we can return again and again. I have recommended it to all of my friends and family ... all of the West of Ireland is at your doorstep when staying here ... we visited Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, the Rock of Cashel, the Ring of Kerry and so many other great places, and always had our sweet cottage to return to. Five Stars.

                            I want to second my sister's review of the cottage! I visited Ireland with my 2 sisters and cousin for a lovely vacation and to explore our family roots. The cottage could not have been more perfect! The setting is outside the lovely town of Adare and the farm was beautiful. You wake to the sounds of the cows and the emerald green pastures of Ireland. the cottage is authentic, homey and beautifully furnished. We arrived to Joan's amazing scones with clotted cream. There is much to explore on the west coast of Ireland and Joans place is a perfect home base to do it from.

                            We were greeted with a pot of piping hot tea, homemade scones and clotted cream, and a welcoming fire. And it only got better from there. The stone cottage was perfect for 2 (and at times 3) of us, just down the lane from a wonderful restaurant and bar and convenient to Adare yet a peaceful and relaxing location. It was fully equiped and we didn't want for naything. And Joan and Mike were perfect hosts; giving us space but available to answer questions, provide guidance (like how to drive) and make suggestions.

                            We rented both of the cottages, to spend 5 days with family and friends. The surroundings are absolutely lovely. The cottages are located a couple of hundred meters down a small paved road, which makes the place perfect for kids. The kids enjoyed all the cows and horses, and they took a particular liking to the cute Jack Russell pup. The location in Adare was very handy for sightseeing. We spent one day at Cliffs of Moher, another day in Killarney. And Adare is only a few minutes away, so we got our food and take-always from the village. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, and charming place in the west of Ireland.

                            A cousin, two sisters and I stayed at the cottage for four days. The previous review states everything that we would have said. We decided to stay in the cottage but the barn was also so beautiful it was hard to decide. The fire was so inviting and cozy that the rain we experienced was almost a welcomed excuse to stay in and relax. The farm was immaculate and fun to explore. Joan and Mike were great. Very helpful but not intrusive. Each time we returned to the cottage we were greeted by Hector and Roger ( their dogs) along with a new pup in the stables behind us. Though it was spring (April).the garden was blooming and well taken care of. I will definitely rerurn taking a larger group and both places. Thank you Joan and Michael for all your help... And loved the scones.

                            My husband and I so enjoyed our time in Adare at the stone cottage. It was beautifully decorated, extremely convenient and well located, and so very cozy. We quickly started thinking of it as “home.” Joan's delicious home-made welcome scones were the best we have had and such a treat upon arrival in a rain storm. We were so well taken care of and grateful for all Joan, Mike and David did to help us with grocery shopping tips (we loved the Saturday market in Limerick), our iPad issues and day trip planning. Adare turned out to be a marvelous location from which to see so much of the west and southwest of Ireland. We loved having the cottage to relax in near a crackling fire and had a great time enjoying the horses, cattle and of course, the dogs. We think that renting both cottages would be great for a larger group.
