  • Andrea

    Lovely warm welcome for us and our 2 dogs

  • Elaine

    Bernie and family were most welcoming, and were there if we needed any assistance whilst allowing us to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the beautiful surrounds. Fuschia Cottage is best described as a home from home, beautifully designed and reminiscent of the traditional Irish cottage, with an equally beautiful mature garden to enjoy...and ideal for family pets to enjoy freely. I would highly recommend this host and cottage for a relaxed, comfortable and friendly location to holiday.

    It felt like home the minute we arrived. Immaculately clean with a huge well-equipped kitchen. Very private location, great countryside views and all the amenities. Bernie and Derry are lovely hosts.
