“Beautiful house, magical gardens with its own stream”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 for a stay in August 2013

This is an ideal get-away-from-it-all oasis of peace and beauty. The house is located at the foothills of the Slieve Bloom mountains (great walks and cycling) and has been beautifully furnished. The real glory are the gardens - extensive, great to meander around by day and night, lots of interesting plants and trees - and its own meandering stream with walkways and bridges. A great place (and safe) for children and wonderfully quiet for adults. You will need a car to get there and to get to the local shops - but plenty of walks and cycling etc on your doorstep.
Highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the trouble to submit a review. We are delighted that you had a restful stay and enjoyed the house and gardens. Good too that you had an opportunity to cycle the tracks and tours in the Slieve Blooms. We hope that the large laminated wall map of the area and all the pocket tours we have available for our guests supported your planning.
