2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
We do also have a very nice little loft bedroom with a single bed. That we do use but we still limit the total number of people staying to four. This was helpful when we had four women staying from Canada last Summer. They were each able to have their own bed with the use of the other room. Other wise the room is used as a linen room.

About Rowland Orr
My Mother's grandparents lived in the little town of Tallow just 20 minutes away from Keane's Cottage. She purchased and restored the cottage some twenty years ago. She used to stay for six months here each year and six months in the US. It was really all her efforts and Love that made Keane's Cottage what it is today. When she was restoring the Cottage she met Chris and Marie, a wonderful couple who live just a mile away in Piltown. They became my Mother's best friends and all these years they have looked after the house when ever she was not there. They are the caretakers of the house and with out them the Cottage would not be here. When Guests have come to stay, they have always received them and stopped by to check that they are ok and that every thing is working well. When they come by please feel free to invite them in for tea. The photo above is of Chris and Marie taken a few years ago. They are sitting just outside the front door. A lovely place to sit with a cup of tea.
Rowland Orr purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Rowland Orr chose Ardmore
The Cottage is located in the center of the southern coast and is only five minutes from the main road between Cork and Waterford. It is only a seven to ten minute drive around the bay to the town of Youghal. You will find all your grocery needs there and there are numerous bakeries to find your Irish soda bread. I also recommend the Smoked Salmon from Youghal Bay Seafoods. It is made daily on location. I also recommend Jack O'Patsy Pottery from where the plates and bowls that are in the kitchen are made. They also have a very nice cafe and the Youghal Craft and Design Center is located up the stairs. There are plenty of places to eat as well. Also in Dungarvan 20 minutes away and Ardmore 10 minutes away.
What makes this Cottage unique
Others who have come to visit have said Keane's Cottage is a unique experience unto it's self. With its teak windows, and deal wood floors and vaulted ceilings, and the wavey plaster walls. It is decorated with antiques that my Mother collected over the years. Much care has gone into making the house comfortable for your stay. It is for those with a historical appreciation and are looking for something a little different. It is our hope that the Cottage will not just be a place to stay but an integral part of your holiday or vacation experience. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.
