  • Timothy

    The cottage was very nice with expansive views and the hosts were very helpful when we needed anything.

  • Steve

    Clean, convenient location, beautiful view and very modern amenities.

  • Mary

    It came fully equipped with everything we needed for our family of 6 even toys to keep our little boy entertained! The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and we tucked straight into it after a long day travelling. The cottage is situated in the most idyllic setting overlooking Slieve Gullion and we were less than an hour away from the furthest attraction we wanted to visit on our stay making it the perfect location. The cottage was clean, comfortable and spacious - a real home from home. We would highly recommend it and will definitely be back! A special thank you to Eithne for making us feel so welcome!
