We decided to have a winter escape away from the claustrophobia of working from home. The Cottages were perfect. An island of tranquility set in beautiful grounds which open directly onto the almost limitiless beach. The cottage was fully equipped for self-catering with fridge, freezer, stove, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. I'd be hard-pressed to ask for more. Everyone we met there, staff and owners alike, were very lovely people. I am very glad we chose The Cottages.

We have just returned from a perfect 5 night stay in The Garden Cottage. We were anxious about our first trip away from home after Covid 19, but shouldn’t have worried at all. We received an extremely informative email two hours before our arrival with a link to a video about what would happen at our check in. Everything had been incredibly well thought out. We couldn’t have been more delighted with our cottage - EVERYTHING is supplied for a self catering stay (oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and coffee machine) . The cottage was beautiful and extremely comfortable, and we were delighted with the delicious fresh scones and home made jam (baked by the owner Liz) that had been left in the cottage for us. There is hand sanitiser attached to all the keypads around the site and hand sanitiser and soap in the cottages. The check in process was completed easily with social distancing measures put in place. I witnessed the cleaning team regularly clean everything - especially the bin areas, keypads and the children’s play areas. The cottage itself was absolutely spotless - I honestly couldn’t find any fault at all!!!!! The gardens surrounding the cottage are spectacular and aroma from the beautiful flowers just adds to the whole experience. Liz (the owner) is a really lovely friendly lady, who enjoyed taking care of the beautiful plants and flowers which surround the cottages. She was so helpful and friendly and extremely welcoming - as were all the staff that we met!! Our daughter was delighted with the thatched play cottages and swings in the play area which was right in front of our cottage. We spent our evenings barbecuing and eating at the picnic table whilst she played. All of this on the doorstep of a beautiful beach where we spent our days paddling, playing ball games and building sand castles. We had such a relaxing stay that we booked a return stay before we left. Thank you so much to Liz and all her team!!

Coming all the way from that Lone Star State of Texas, I never thought I would encounter such an incredible welcome during our ten day stay with friends at The Cottages! Liz, Roger and entire staff went out of their way to see that we had that perfect vacation. We were assisted with day trips and drivers that truly were a fountain of information. We stayed at the Rose Cottage and felt so at home with all the amenities one could ask for. The view of the sea from our cottage window was stunning to say the least. Thank you so much for a stellar and memorable experience I will never forget! Susan M.

Dear Susan, It was a joy to have you all with us even more so this year with the uncertainty of the past 18 months. We are delighted you had such a wonderfully memorable trip and got to see so much of the country, everything from sheep dog trials in the Wicklow hills to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy all your extra special memories and do come visit again some time in the future. With warmest best wishes, Roger, Liz and all the Team.

My husband and I along with our friend booked a 10 day stay at these beautiful cottages. We cannot say enough good things about our experience there. We stayed at Rose cottage which is beautifully appointed with everything that you need and more. The attention to detail such as slippers and robes, heated towel racks, fully stocked kitchen, information on local points of interest and restaurants certainly contribute to an enjoyable stay. The beautiful flowers, grounds and meticulous landscaping add to the serene atmosphere with the beautiful ocean as a backdrop. Liz and Roger are gracious and friendly hosts and are a pleasure to meet and chat with. Mel and the staff are helpful and accommodating and always with a smile. We highly recommend the cottages for a superb and pampered vacationing experience. Ed and Melinda Snow

This was our fifth visit to The Cottages - & Honeymoon Cottage was our destination on this trip. It is as cosy and comfortable as the other cottages and we really enjoyed our 3-night break and were sorry we hadn't booked for longer. For anyone who hasn't been here - don't hesitate to book (if there's any availability!). The cottages are spotless and there is such attention to detail - home from home in every respect. We were happy to cook in and just enjoy the beautiful gardens with private access to the beach. The Cottages are the perfect place to unwind and relax. It was lovely catching up with hosts, Liz and Roger and their great Team (including the very cute Poppy 'Bassett'). Thanks to all and see you again soon! xo
