Maybe some people come here for an active vacation : one can cycle or do boating or running or many other things, but we wanted to rest and we found everything to make that possible. Everything felt just right. In the morning the song of that one bird was like a concert, in the evening the fire in the stove the comfort of ages. The sauna a totally unexpected luxury. In the guest book I noticed they have visitors coming back again and again. I can understand why.
This is the perfect place to stay if you are planning your next trip to Ireland! We had the privilege of staying at the Granary Cottage. It was an amazing experience and Niall, the owner, was very welcoming and ensured that we had everything we needed as soon as we arrived.
Located on a farm, it felt like a home away from home the minute we walked through the door. The apartment was super clean and we had access to everything we needed; kitchen was well equipped, access to a washing/drying machine, beautiful porch, fireplace and lots of different walking paths to explore and take in the beautiful surroundings.
We also had a place to park our rented car. The cottage was conveniently located, enabling us to visit various cities located on the south west coast of Ireland by car (such as: Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Limerick, etc...) .
We can't finish this review without also mentioning the farm animals; 2 horses, a cat and Holly, the family's labrador who came to visit on occasion. They all contributed to making the Granary Cottage feel like just the perfect location to have picked on our first, and most definitely not our last, trip to Ireland.
Niall was a wonderful host for our quick trip to Ireland and the Granary Cottage at Fuschia Lane Farm made for an excellent base for our daily explorations. This cozy cottage is functional, comfortable, and up-to-date. Situated in an idyllic setting, we enjoyed quiet nights “at home”.
