"First, Tom was the consummate host. He kindly allowed us to check in early, which was a HUGE perk after the trip from the states. When we arrived, Tom was kind enough to give us a tour and a brief history of the cottage. He also had everything that a traveler would need, or might forget (e.g., List of nearby stores and when they were open/closed; a list of nearby activities; extra supplies like shampoo, etc.). When Tom saw us outside, he always asked us how the cottage was and if we needed anything.
Second, the cottage was wonderful. The cottage was impeccable and had everything that we needed and wanted. There were 3 bedrooms; a cozy living room and a well-equipped kitchen. Added bonuses were the washer/dryer and Wi-Fi. The grounds were fantastic; the yard was park-like with the well-maintained lawn and gardens full of flowers and shrubs; just a very peaceful setting.
The cottage was also central to the places we wanted to visit (e.g., The Cliffs of Moher; Rock of Cashel; Adare; Waterford, etc.). We would take the 5-minute walk into the village after our daily travels to grocery shop or stop at a pub for a pint. The people were very friendly and gave us additional tips as to what we might want to see if time permitted.
We cannot say enough about the cottage and our host and would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants a great spot to call home on their vacation. We will be searching out this cottage for our next visit."
