About William Harty
My family is of Irish descent. Our first time to the Emerald Isle was in 1996. I fell in love with it as every one does and knew then that some day I would have a home there.........a Thatched Cottage. Being involved in architechture,I had always been fascinated in thatched roof cottages. When I purchased Cottage Mary Rose in 2000 I never realised how much I would fall in love with it. It is my true passion, named after my mother, Mary Rose Bowler, I wanted to share this amazing bit of Irish History with others....
William Harty purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why William Harty chose Cordal
I wanted a historic thatched cottage off of the beaten track but close enough to tourist attractions. I am an avid gardener and knew that this location was perfect for a great garden. There are fuschia & camelias every where! The stream was the frosting on the cake. So dramatic because of the ravine and rushing water below. The sound is so calming and tranquil. I preferred the small village of Cordal because you get a TRUE feel of the real Ireland instead of the touristy areas. I was happy enough with the Church and Kearney's Grocer.....I thought all it needed was a pub......my dream was answered and Hughes Pub was built by Sean Hughes a local Cordal lad in 2006. It is a beautiful pub and great for local gab, a great Pint and a game of pool. All with in a 5 minute walk. Our great cottage has stood the test of time. I love sharing this peice of Heaven with others.........
What makes this Cottage unique
Cottage Mary Rose is a wonderful blend of a living bit of history. Add to this a Jacuzzi tub, rain shower and hot tub over looking a stream and you have it all. We even provide WiFi internet connection. Large kitchen which is wonderful for entertaining. The Heritage cooker is probably the best method of cooking food. Besides the Irish farm table there is also a front patio for dining and the deck where you can dine with the sounds of the peaceful stream and song of the birds. Nothing beats relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a long day while enoying the stars above...........absolute Heaven.............

Mary rose cottage
It’s the kind of holidays where everything could have gone wrong from finding property to things. It working but everything went right: jacuzzi perfect, really hot water , charming beautifully decorated cottage and friendly pub near.
We have done our best with the cottage to insure warmth, plenty of hot water and increased water pressure. We believe that our guests should have some thing better than even a hotel can offer. The Jacuzzi in the main bath is great and of course the hot tub on the deck is always a hit. We are blessed to have Hugh's Bar with in a 5 minute walk from the cottage. It is also on the same Cordal Road. Many of our guests have really enjoyed it! We look forward to having you as our guests!
Perfect spot for a week-long getaway in the country
I booked this property because of the AGA-style cooker. After our visit to this beautiful cottage, we fell in love with Ireland, particularly County Kerry. William was very communicative during our stay, and the caretaker, Dennis was outstanding. There were some issues with electricity service before our arrival so the cottage was a little chilly, but Dennis had communicated the entire day. When we arrived he had a fire roaring and the cottage was nice and toasty. The rooms were very comfortable and the cottage has anything you need for a retreat to the country. Do visit Hugh’s pub for a pint and Garvey’s grocery in Castleisland for all your supplies. Both are great! The gardens and hot tub at the property are stunning. William has done a great job here! The location of Mary Rose is ideal for visiting many great places in Ireland; we saw much of the Ring of Kerry, Killarney National Park, Killarney town, the Dingle peninsula (this is a must-see!), Cork, Limerick, Blarney Castle, and so many more! Williams recommendations are great, so do take him up on them. Book this cottage for a cozy, relaxing trip to one of the most beautiful places on earth!
It was a pleasure helping you to decide great day trips. We are always happy to go the extra mile because we want this experience to be amazing. Hugh's is such an excellent place for a good pint and local cheer. Sean and his crew have catered to many of our guests and it is only a 5 minute walk up the Cordal Road! We look forward to having you as our guests!
More than we could have hoped for
What a beautiful and warm inviting atmosphere. The manager and his wife were great. They even baked brown bread and had it waiting for us when we arrived. If you want old Irish traditional home comfort with modern convenience this is the place to stay.
Thank you for staying at Cottage Mary Rose! Eileens bread is amazing! They take hosting to another level and the treats are great especially when you first arrive from a long journey. The cottage has great energy and is quite embracing!
We knew this place was special before we arrived, but still could not believe how amazing the house and gardens were.
Visiting from the USA, it felt like staying in a museum. We were fascinated to hear it was at one time a rambling house. The gardens were beautiful, and at night with their subtle lighting, were magical. The welcoming vibe was impressive. The caretakers greeted us with freshly baked bread and then left us to be, unless we needed them.
We highly recommend this house!
I can’t imagine a more wonderful experience than staying at Mary Rose. It was perfect for our family and we will always remember it! Eileen and Denis were great and even brought us a lovely welcome gift of homemade bread. So grateful for a magical place to stay!
