Live Like a Local!
We loved having Fanningstown house as our base for our week in western Ireland. The house was quite roomy for 8 guests, and the kitchen was well equipped and stocked w proper Irish breakfast goodies! Super tidy and comfortable for all! We did day trips to Cashel, Dingle, Cliffs of Moher, Kinsale, Limerick, and the Burren easily. The town of Adare is a 10 min drive and we loved the pubs, cafes, historic sights...the riverwalk loop is especially pretty.
Excellent, very comfortable, well equipped and great location
We stayed for two weeks for a family reunion. Five bedrooms and lots of living areas made for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen was very well equipped with heaps of crockery cutlery glassware and cooking utensils. The hosts were very responsive and friendly. The location is very convenient for touring and sightseeing.
Loved this place!
This house is spacious and located only 5 minutes from one of the most charming towns (Adare). It’s also located centrally to be able to explore much of western Ireland. The house was very clean when we arrived and had plenty of room for our group of 10! It has all the amenities you would need to make it feel like home (plenty of towels, coffee maker, washer/dryer, yard, comfortable furniture, etc.). I would definitely recommend this place!
Beautifully appointed home in Adare!
Angela and John provided a very warm welcome with their home in Adare. The house was very clean and decorated in such a way that made us feel at home over Christmas. They stocked the fridge with a few goodies that did not make a trip to the grocery store an urgent matter. The house is in a nice position for getting into Adare. Angela and John were very prompt to reply with any questions. My one complaint would be the heating. We were told where the master switch was to turn the heat on and off, but were given no direction in how to control the amount of heat. Some days we were freezing, other days we were roasting. On our last day, Angela came to the house for a different reason and felt the heat. She then showed how to control the heat at the radiators. When we left we had a large bill for the gas that was used for the heat. I believe this bill would have been substantially lower had we been given a full explanation on how to use the heat at check-in. Overall, we had a great stay in Adare, and the house was very charming.
Unfortunately there must have been a misunderstanding, on your part re-heating (which is oil not gas) at check in ,when the operating instructions were demonstrated on two occassions by John.
Notably the weather was very mild ,and you availed of the option of the two open fires on the property, which could explain the intensity of the heat you experienced.
It is regrettable, that you did not seize the opportunity to highlight the heat/ freezing conditions on the other times, you spoke with us during your stay, we would happily have rectified it.
Regards the billing issue which amounted to €80 after a 10% discount, it must be remembered that heat usage is at the guests discretion.
We will endeavour to prioritise and simplify the instructions for future guests .
Great place to stay!
I, along with four other family members, stayed in Fanningstown House for a little over a week at the end of November. The location is amazing, and as we rented a car it was easy to make day trips all over the country. Fanningstown House was an amazing place to stay. As soon as we arrived in Adare I was able to call Angela, who immediately met us at the house and gave us a wonderful tour. Some food was already in the fridge and pantry, which was a beautiful thing to jet-lagged Americans too tired to immediately think about grocery shopping. The house is a great size, with lots of room for everyone. We had a great time sitting by the fireplace most nights, and it was always a wonderful place to come home to.
The WiFi worked very well, especially downstairs. Having laundry was a huge plus; the dryer took longer than we’re used to, but Angela had walked us through that so we planned ahead and it wasn’t an issue. Other than the first few days we found we only needed the heat turned on for a few hours in the morning and evening, but not during the day when we were out and about, or when we were sleeping. The house does a great job holding the heat, but be aware that it is by meter, and that can add up. We really appreciated all of the information provided by Angela; there are folders in the living room and laundry room full of information about pertinent household details (e.g. which bins are for what), as well as good places to eat/emergency numbers/other information tourists would be glad to have.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay, and all five of us agreed we would definitely stay at Fanningstown House again!
We could not have chosen a better place to stay
Having read previous reviews we had high expectations and we were certainly not disappointed. Angela and John are warm and friendly hosts without being intrusive whatsoever. The property is immaculate. They go the extra mile to ensure your stay is a comfortable one. Beautifully furnished for a holiday rental and the most well equipped we have come across.
We would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of Irleland.
