We booked all four cottages at Abhainn Ri for my relatives from the UK and USA who attended my wedding in April 2009. It was a great family re union. The views from the cottages were just out of this world. The website does not do it justice. We were welcomed on arrival with lovely home made cakes and tea, lovely touch. The owners had just put in walkways through the fields overlooking the lakes. Great to get away for a peaceful walk. The cottages had just been redecorated by the owners and we were delighted with the very high standard. All bedrooms are en suite so it was just perfect for a mixture of family members. My relatives were very impressed with the care an attention of detail. The younger members of our family loved to watch the lambs and wild rabbits in the fields. The cottage has an information folder packed with ideas of places to go a see. Glendalough is only 25 minutes drive away. So it kept everyone very busy. Niamh the owner even gave my aunt a mobile broadband connection so she could work during her stay. I highly recommend this location especially if you have a extended family to accommodate. The standards are very high and It has something for everyone.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We look forward to greeting your family again this summer. Niamh

Thank you for a great holiday in your self catering cottages. They were so homely we loved the tea and home made cake on arrival, it made us feel so welcome. We enjoyed the farm walks, the birds chirping in the trees around us. The ponies and donkeys were so friendly and did not refuse the odd carrot or two. The cottages were so well cared for with lots of attention to detail. We look forward to our visit this summer and we would recommend them to anyone.
Thank you for your lovely review. You will truely enjoy our addition of our hens and baby ducks since your last visit. Your children will love our cute little donkey too. Look forward to seeing you all again. Niamh
