  • Wonderful Home for Three Generations of Family Members

    "My father, brother, niece, nephew, my daughter, and I stayed in this beautiful home in August, 2014. The house had everything we needed and was full of charm. Peter was very easy to work with and very helpful with all of our questions. We loved the proximity to downtown and we enjoyed a lovely walk to the Guinness Storehouse. Much of the walk was through a beautiful park. The beds and common areas were lovely. The only issue we encountered is that the proximity of the toilets to the bedrooms (with the exception of the master bedroom) is not ideal for people who need to get up in the night to visit the restroom. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others."

  • Historic Aghaboe House

    "My first memory of my first trip to Ireland will always be that of Aghaboe. My partner and I arrived at Dublin airport, exhausted and harried, and drove straightaway to this manor house in the country. It's a good thing we did: The caretaker cheerfully made us tea and showed us through this welcoming old stone house. The pleasures were many: luxuriating in a deep soaking tub, sipping lovely Spanish wines from their wine cellar, meandering through the nooks and crannies of the house, and exploring the impressive library. At night Orion shone brilliantly in the velvet sky and in the mornings a step outside revealed a forgotten era. Here you can still breathe sweet soft air and gaze across the ridiculously green grass with cattle grazing to an ancient crumbling abbey. From here we visited the surrounding countryside and nearby Kilkenny, but returning to the huge old house and its lovely grounds was most restorative. Though we went on to find my own ancestral land and many more touristed sites, this place remains special--authentic and unforgettable."

  • Home away from Home

    "From the first time we met Catherine and Martin we felt like we had known them for years. We were greeted with a fire in the hearth and warm home baked raisin scones and fresh flowers from Catherine's garden. Our grand children loved the dogs, puppies, horses, foal, donkeys, sheep and cattle. They also liked the donkey rides that Martin so generously gave them. I almost forgot to mention that numerous bunnies scurried about the place. The cottage was accurately described. It was clean and well maintained. We definitely got everything that we were promised. There are 2 lakes , Lake Carra and Lake Mask close by. Both are beautiful and crystal clear. We loved Cong and visited Ashford Castle as well as Ballintubber Abbey, Connemara, and Galway City. We visited the bog and saw the peat being saved for next winter's fuel. There were so many things to see/do on the farm that I wish that I could assemble a brochure of the place. Martin has a beautiful singing voice and he sings in a pub close by each weekend. I would definitely recommend this place to friends. My husband, son and family and my daughter and her husband all agree that the time that they spent in Green acres was one of the best vacations that they ever enjoyed. A month was definitely not long enough. We would love to return in the future. Anne McHugh"
