Outstanding service, Picture Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

We probably couldn't have designed a more picture perfect setting to stay. The grounds are kept in beautiful shape, the house is sound and built to exacting standards, and the family is top notch in service. They are simply excellent people. The place is located in Adare, which is a beautiful little village 20 minutes away from Limerick. It had a couple amazing pubs with live entertainment, great food and drink. We also ate at the Blue Door Restaurant which offered amazing food and service. I would advise any American/Canadian visiting to use caution when entering the roadway from the cottage as the hedges are so thick and high, you cannot see whats coming. I had my wife get out of the vehicle and make sure nothing was coming, then quickly jump back in the car to ensure we safely got onto the roadway - that worked well.

Over all, we highly recommend!

A magical experience!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Outstanding Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Dream!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Perfect Irish Experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolute Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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.

Car: necessary

Adare has two superb golf courses including the Championship Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort which hosted the Irish Open in 2007 & 2008.

A visit to local 14th & 15th century Abbeys, Friary & Desmond Castle are highly recommended.
