“A true escape” My partner & I spent a week in the annex recently. The location is wonderful in a peaceful, tranquil and rural setting very close to the beach and the beach bar and with great views of Knocknarea, which is a worthwhile climb or for a longer walk do the 15km walk which takes in the climb starting & finishing in Strandhill. The area is an ideal base for walking. We walked the Sligo Way over 3 days, starting in Lough Talt & finishing 73kms later in Dromahair. Beautiful & varying scenery all along the way. If 3 days is not for you any section of this way is breathtaking. Closer to home is the aughris Head/Dunmoran Strand Walk, a gorgeous cliff walk. The annex itself is comfortable and we enjoyed the added peace as there was noone staying in the attaching beach house while we were there until the last 2 nights, waking up each morning to just the sound of cows & sheep, a real escape.

Garveys Holiday Cottage

Dingle cottage

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • sleeps 6

“Magical Dingle Stay” My group and I were so well looked after at Garvey's cottage. Joan is a wealth of information, a wonderful cook,and a very generous soul. The cottage has wonderful ocean views with a short walk to the cliffs, and is perfectly located for other scenic tours/pilgrimages in and around Dingle. Dingle is truly a magical place with phenomenal sights, walks, and people. I would highly recommend anyone to come and stay here if they wish to experience something of the old and true Ireland. I miss Dingle and look forward to another visit.

STEEPE'S PLACE, pet friendly, character holiday cottage in Glenosheen Near

Ardpatrick house

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom
  • sleeps 4

“Peace, tranquility, clean air and friendly people” We were welcomed by a lovely neighbour to the property who took us round the cottage and clearly explained everything and that, if we needed anything at all, she was just a short walk or phone call away. The welcome pack was a very nice and unexpected touch. The charming 300 year old cottage, which was very well-equipped with all the modern amenities, was clean and very homely, still containing personal items of the lady that had once lived for most of her life. The owner also paid a pleasant courtesy call to see that we had everything we needed. Just 5 minutes drive from Ardpatrick or 10 minutes from the larger Kildorrerey and situated approximately halfway between Limerick and Cork, this is an isolated location with little or no nightlife but rich in beauty, peace and tranquility. A perfect medicine for the stressed-out city dweller! I have only one issue - anyone over 5'4" will have to do some head-ducking when moving around the bedrooms but that comes with the charm and age of the cottage. All in all, a memorable experience which we are likely to repeat.

Traditional cosy Stone Cottage with sea views

Kenmare house

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom
  • sleeps 4

“Rustic Living” If you like Rustic, then this place is for you. Mag is a wonderful host and she made sure we felt at home the moment we arrived. The stone cottage is about 100 years old and is basic accommodation but still warm and cozy. We still had all the modern essentials such as dish washer, washing machine etc but without the time burners such as internet and cable TV. The open fire was great and the bed very comfortable. Our little hire car managed the bush track to the house and the view is breathtaking. A little hint... take most of your supplies with you as the major stores are a reasonably long drive away. Make sure you venture to Josie's for at least one meal. You won't believe how remote it is and how good the food and view are.

“A fantastic Irish experience!” We loved our stay in the Thatched cottage- it is not luxurious, but we were not looking for luxury. We enjoy walking and the views were spectacular. The Thatched Cottage was the perfect base for our holiday. We could dry out our socks in front of the peat fire when it rained (which it did quite a lot) and it was quite a short drive into Westport where we enjoyed a drop of the black stuff and some fantastic music of an evening. Our hosts could not have been more friendly and accommodating. I would heartily recommend the Thatched Cottage to anyone who is after an authentic experience and who doesn't mind uneven floors!

“Wonderful, Peaceful a home from home” We had a wonderful family holiday at this cottage. Everything one could think of was supplied. Our every need was met. It is the first time we experienced a house that thought of supplying so much even a food mixer and slow cooker. Our extended family want to go back every year. I am booking again for next year.

Brandon Mountain Cottage

Dingle cottage

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom
  • sleeps 6

“Wonderful location” We were three adults enjoying a short break in the Dingle Peninsula. Brandon Mountain Cottage was very comfortable and spotless throughout. Great attention to detail here. The kitchen was well fitted out and lots of throws and rugs ensured we were comfy on chilly evenings. The views from the house of Brandon Bay and the mountains beyond were spectacular. A lovely walk to the beach as well as a vigorous climb to the summit of nearby Mount Brandon, added to the joy of our stay. Linda was very helpful and made us feel very much at home.

“The warmest welcome.” We crossed from England to Ireland, docking at 6pm. We had a 2 and a half hour drive ahead of us, but the directions were spot-on. Easy, traffic free roads. We arrived at the village at about 8.30pm, and the lady who owns The Dispensary was waiting outside to greet us. There are no shops in the tiny village of Inch, so she'd left us provisions for supper and breakfast, at no extra charge. Home made bread and jam, sausages, bacon, tea, juice. Too much to mention. The nearest shops, pubs etc are about 4 miles away in a busy village. And a more major town is a seaside town called Youghal, just 7 miles from our cottage. The Dispensary is the best equipped holiday place we've ever stayed in. Truely a home from home. Even foil, clingfilm, all your linen including towels and bedding. Outside there is a brand new shed which is a fully functioning utility room. Washing machine, ironing board, clothes airer. The owners are not intrusive, but you are welcome to knock on their door for any directions and advice. They really enjoy their letting project. This holiday is a perfect retreat for anyone wanting peace and tranquility in and idyllic setting. We went there as a base to sight-see around southern Ireland. We loved it, but some of the journeys were epic - for instance from Inch to Killarney was a 2 and a half hour drive, before you even start on the Ring of Kerry. But there were plenty of more local sights - Cork, Blarney Castle, Cobh and many beautiful seaside towns. Well worth a visit is The Mahon Falls with it's Magic and magnetic road - look at it on Youtube. This holiday let, The Dispensary at Inch, was perfect for us. More than perfect. I can't remember what price guide it was given, but I know that at the time I believed that it had been underrated.

About Ireland

Lovingly referred to as "The Emerald Isle," Ireland is one of Europe's most enchanting destinations. This warm and friendly country is known for its small towns, Gaelic culture, lovely seascapes, and historic architecture. Dublin, the country's capital, is a cosmopolitan city with Georgian architecture, interesting museums, and a lively nightlife. Dublin can be a wonderful place to start your journey around Ireland, or a destination in itself.

Outside of the capital, Ireland is decidedly less urban. Across the country, rolling hills of green grass are dotted with small villages and grazing sheep. Here and there, the ruins of a monastery or the stone turrets of a castle rise over the meadows, lending an undeniable majesty to the landscape. In some small towns, the Gaelic language is still spoken, while the country's Celtic heritage is preserved in its musical traditions. Simply enjoying the unique Irish atmosphere is what attracts most visitors to this country. There is no greater pleasure than a pleasant stroll along the bluffs in Donegal or stopping in for a hearty Irish meal at a country pub in Cork. As many visitors will tell you, the Irish people are as warm as their hills are green.

When planning a trip to Ireland, consider visiting:

  • Killarney: This scenic city is situated in Kerry County, a typically Irish region of lakes, fields, and national parks.
  • Connemara: Located in Galway, the Connemara Loop is an enchanting coastal highway that will take you past charming little towns and breathtaking landscapes.
  • Clonmacnoise: Take a fascinating tour of the ruins of an 11th and 12th century monastery, situated along the banks of the Shannon River.

Ireland can be a wonderful destination for the whole family, especially if you find a vacation rental that will accommodate your whole group. For a taste of true Ireland, a charming cottage or cozy cabin rental in one of the country's small towns can be an unforgettable way to spend your vacation. For the most romantic option, seek out an oceanfront villa overlooking the sea. Those who like urban pleasures should consider a condo or apartment rental in the cities of Cork, Dublin, or Galway, where you can enjoy local culture from the comfort of your own space.

Mc Evoy's Self Catering
Family holiday

House is in a great position just a short drive to lots of places. It is very spacious and very clean. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay. We were an extended family of 9 adults 3 kids and a baby and dogs. There was plenty of space indoors and outdoors with lots of separate seating areas. Our favourite part was the outdoor area which is completly covered over and can be closed up which came in handy on colder evenings and rainy days. We really enjoyed our stay and i wouldnt hesitate in recommending this place to anyone or returning myself. Paul was so friendly and full of information, and even rang a couple of times during our stay to make sure everything was going ok and to check if we had any problems or queries.see more
Holiday home, Graignamanagh, Co. Kilkenny
Beautiful location

Stayed at the house with our children and our 2 dogs. Location and views were beautiful and tranquil. The house was very comfortable and well equipped for cooking, there was also entertainment for the children in the games room. The garden was enclosed with plenty of space for children to play. Good supermarkets close by for groceries and also petrol station in town. Would highly recommend staying here with family and pets.see more

Weekend Getaway Celebration

This house was absolutely beautiful, it was spacious and comfortable and perfect for celebration our daughters birthday, it’s perfect for a family gathering and a stunning place to spend quality time together. Beautiful views all around the house, beautiful greenery all over ,views of the mountains and the sea can be seen from the upstairs balconies which had seats and tables perfect for a breather. The bathrooms were almost fully stacked and the rooms were spacious and comfortable . There’s an entire beauty corner that everyone loved- full of products too. The only things I would comment on is if you’re planning to have a larger group ,the kitchen was under equipped and smaller than expected so know to bring some of your own plates and platters if needed. Lastly the host,Marie, was nothing but lovely and approachable , would recommend and would book again . Thank you for having us Marie.see more
Cosy Chalet Inverin near Spiddal Galway
Nice Place Close to the Water and Great Hosts

Mike and Majella are great hosts and we really enjoyed meeting them and their extended family. This is a clean place with a bit of rustic charm and everything you need. We used the washer/dryer combo unit, the stove, fridge, oven, and various appliances and all worked good. There is good off street parking for your car. We had a bit of a mechanical issue with our vehicle and Mike was of great assistance. This is also why we spent a bit of extra time in the courtyard garden at the back of the property enjoying conversation with our hosts. This place is somewhat off the beaten path and is perfect as long as that is what you are looking for. We visited in late April, 2023 and it was very relaxed and quiet in the area. The TV is on the small side and that could be an issue if you are inside for extended periods of time due to weather or something. We did a little cooking and the only issue was the kitchen knives are dull and need replacing or sharpening. The beds were comfy and we rested good. The heat works very good and is evenly distributed. Fridge and freezer kept all our food items in great condition. There is limited shopping for food nearby so advance planning may be required by some. We did well and were able to find all we needed at the mini- supermarket a couple minutes away.see more
