  • Met All Our Expectations Plus!

    "Martin and his family know how to offer a true Irish welcome. He was always generous with his time and hospitality. We had food in the frig, a hot meal welcoming us and goodies shared with us throughout the week. The cottage was lovely and roomy enough for 6 people to have both privacy and shared space. It was spotless and enhanced by a fire that was lit for us each night. All amentities were as described. The cottage was on a quiet country road about 10 min from a major highway and other roads that lead to major areas, i.e. Adare, Cashel, Killarney, Cahir, Limmerick, the ferry to county Clare, Galway, Cork, etc. There is also a town about 10 minutes away with a selection of supermarkets, restaurants and a pharmacy among others. It was great to be near but not in the middle of a bustling tourist area. It gave us the ability to see the sites and still have the quiet of the countryside. Not only would I recommend the cottage, I would look forward to staying again."

  • It's more than a grand cottage--it's home!

    "This was our second visit to Cooga Cottage. Our first visit was two years ago with our 18 year old granddaughter. We had such a lovely time and couldn't wait to return. This visit was with two grandsons, ages 17 and 22. Again, a terrific time was had by all of us. I enjoyed looking out the kitchen window to the beautiful flowers in the garden. The guys tried teaching themselves hurling on the huge lawn. They also kicked a soccer ball around. (Tom was so kind to leave a soccer ball out for them to use. It was the first thing they did after bringing in their suitcases.) It would have been lovely to eat in the garden at the table/chairs provided, but we were always on the go. (Ah, next time.) The cottage is very conveniently located to so many places. I did cook breakfast almost every day in the beautifully equiped kitchen. There is everything a cook would want--including an apron! It was great keeping our laundry done up--no need to pack so much when you know you have a washer & dryer in the cottage. Actually, the entire cottage is equipped with everything needed--hair dryers, maps, shampoo, Q-tips, soaps bath/laundry/dish, coffee, tea, and spices. Tom even left a container of milk and chocolates for us. He is so thoughtful. I can't say enough good things about this gem of a cottage and its owner, Tom. As I told him when I booked the cottage this year, "I feel like I'm coming home." It's on my bucket list to take our other six grandchildren to Cooga Cottage in the future. I was saddened to find the Chinese restaurant in the church next door had closed. Although there are wonderful places to eat nearby, that one had been a special favorite of mine. We met a lovely neighbor and her daughter while we were by the road looking through the folliage for the sliotar (hurling ball). They were so kind as to drop by later with a sliotar for the guys--her son wanted them to have it. The clerk at the store always asked what I had seen/done during the day when I'd stop in for groceries. There are very friendly people in Doon. We walked on the nature trail near the cottage for the first time during this visit. It will definitely be something I do on every visit. I keep a picture of Cooga Cottage on my laptop as a screen saver. Just looking at it whisks me back to Ireland and drops my blood pressure. I highly recommend this cottage!!"

  • Immaculate and Roomy House - Perfectly located for day trips

    "House was immaculate - we invited 4 other couples with us and all the bedrooms were just as nice so no-one felt like they were getting something less. Our hosts were very nice and helpful - made sure we had some essentials for the first day (especially apreciate the Guiness :-)). The house is centrally located (within about 1 hr drive) to most of the sites, Adare is a beatiful little town and was a day trip for us as well as some evening dinners. We came in by train from Dublin, rented a car in Limerick. We did day trips to Rock of Casl (including Tipperary), Dingle, Killarney, Cliffs of Moer (incuding Ennis, The Burren, Galway), Limerick. We loved Ireland - the sites, culture, people and Guiness."

  • A magical experience!

    "My husband and I took both the cottage and the barn for a two-week family get-together. As lovely as they are, the photos on the website do not do justice to the place. The two buildings are located in the middle of a working farm. The gardens are lush and well kept, the interior spaces are beautifully decorated, and the rooms are spacious, with abundant light and comfortable furnishings. We took a number of day trips to amazing spots during our stay, but also found ourselves very content to remain at home, shop for and prepare our meals, and generally revel in the beautiful surroundings."
