    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Jack's Cottage is a beautifully restored18th century thatched fisherman's cottage, nestled in a peaceful garden on the banks of the River Blackwater in lovely unspoilt rural West Waterford on Ireland's south coast.
    The long, narrow lane that leads to the cottage takes you away from the hustle and bustle of modern life to a different world. Here the loudest sounds around are made by pheasants in the surrounding fields or the cormorants on the river, the perfect soundtrack for you to unwind to in this historic, comfortable house and riverside garden.
    We have recently built a hide to improve wildlife watching on the river and it is possible to see otters and salmon in the wild, as well as a huge variety of birds.

This is an experience you will frame in your memories forever. The picture-perfect thatched cottage is surrounded by the most beautiful colorful flowering gardens which photos can't seem to capture -- each view is a lovely painting. There is a private grassed walk from the cottage to the river which we enjoyed viewing at different times in the day --...

It's difficult to put into words just how nice this pretty little thatched cottage in the country truly is, and how much we've enjoyed staying here.
