    Gertrude and John are very welcoming and friendly. Lovely houses, countryside and dairy cows. They even very kindly asked us to Mass at their house which alas we could not go to as the next day we were on an early start home. Great place for children. Mallow, Fermoy and Doneraile close at hand to visit as well as other...

    We have stayed at the wonderful Farm Cottages (Sand and Rock Cottages) twice now. They are superb for extended families, we have stayed with a mixture of 6 adults and 5 children (aged 4 to 11 at the time of stay) and every single person had the time of their life. The cottages themselves are gorgeous, have everything needed and...

    Warm welcome, nothing too much trouble. The house and garden well worth a longer stay. Hope to stay longer next time and chill and relax. Many thanks for making our busy holiday so enjoyable. The dogs enjoyed the garden and the field. Looking forward to next year and a good catch up. Many thanks.

    This cottage is a very special house. It still retains many of its original "Church" features. The house facilities are excellent and the location is central to many wonderful holiday spots. Our children loved the farm environment and the space that Billy's Cottage provides. Gertrude is a brilliant hostess, we loved meeting and chatting with her. We can highly recommend...
