“The best self-catering cottage in Ireland”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My wife, four year old daughter and I stayed at Austin and Catherine Redmond's charming Rose Cottage for an entire glorious week.
We were so impressed, not only with the cottage, which was clean, neat and warm with a fire lit in the hearth when we arrived, but also with our hosts' hospitality. They left, to our delight, a liter of fresh milk in the fridge (to use with the coffee and tea in the cupboard) and a wonderful chocolate cake in the kitchen for our enjoyment.
Even the smallest detail was attended to, like Austin bringing their four donkeys around to the cottage' s well-equipped play area and supplying kindling to light the next morning's fire. The beds were warm and came equipped with electric blankets and down duvets.
It is such a beautiful surrounding area in Foulkesmills and each night we went to bed with the sound of a tranquil stream(which used to power the mill of Mill Farm) trickling down its course.
The day before our departure we were surprised to find a "Frozen" bag of treats hanging on the front door, for our daughter to take with her the rest of our trip.
We have never experienced friendliness and hospitality like this before, which makes this simply The Best Cottage in Ireland!

What a wonderful review - thank you so much. We were thrilled to have you come to stay at Mill Farm. Really glad that you liked the cottage and the open fire. The delight on your little girl's face when the donkeys came round made us all smile. Hope you equally enjoyed your week in the west of Ireland. Best wishes from Mill Farm and Ireland.

“excellent place for a total unwind”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Lovely place as described in their ad , peaceful and very comfortable and clean accommodation. The cottages are very well appointed for adults and children alike. There are lots of activities for children including a rabbit and donkeys. Our dog was delighted with his holiday - lots of space for quiet walks and nearby beaches that allow dogs. Could not say enough about the owners - very welcoming and friendly. We will be back !

WE arrived at our cottage after a long trip across the ocean and a long day driving and touring. A fire laid in the hearth and a friendly greeting welcomed us to a comfortable, cozy place to unwind. The rooming arrangements were prefect for our odd assortment of extended family members and having a sitting room and kitchen made for comfortable gathering. The furnishings were very well kept, clean and made us feel quite spoiled. The owners dropped by to ensure all our needs were met and questions answered. Beds were firm, appliances functioned perfectly and the fire was a touch of comfort that was perfect. We all agreed this was the peaceful place we had hoped for from which to begin our weeks of touring.

I'm not Joseph but another person in the booking party (Jamie Ledford) and I must say that this was an excellent place to stay! Neat & clean, great beds, delightful owners who even brought their dog over for me to pat (alas, I was still at the pub when this happened). I will definately book here again!

Our family had the pleasure of staying at Mill Farm cottages this July. We must say, that the place was beautiful, clean and had all the home comforts anyone would need. It was very reasonably priced too. Catherine and Austin (the owners) couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.We arrived strangers but, we departed as friends. We loved it! Our 3 children (11,10 & 7) had a ball. Lovely memories for us. Thank you Catherine and Austin.

“Mill Farm Cottages were charming and just as the website protrayed.”
Reviewed 25 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a month in Ireland in one of the Mill Farm Cottages(Brook Cottage). Our sons and their famiies visited part of the time and our grandchildren especially enjoyed the freedom of the country setting with its animalsl(donkeys, rabbits, chickens) and toys that were provided.
We arrived at Brook Cottage to a fire ready to be lit and a delicious apple pie. The cottage was lovely and furnished with all the things to make our month's stay enjoyable. Catherine had even offered to get us groceries since we were arriving on a Sunday. Catherine and Austin did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. Careful not to interfere, they checked in with us often helping us with our travel plans and any other questions we had. Mill Farm Cottages provided excellent accomodations and a location from which to visit Irish tourist sites. Choosing Mill Farm Cottages was one of the major reasons our trip to Ireland was so memorable.

Austin and I are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Mill Farm Cottages. We know that you all travelled a long way to meet up and it was a special time for you all being together. Really glad that your grandchildren enjoyed the spaces to run freely, the animals are certainly missing all their attention. Thank you both again for taking the time out to review your stay with us and hope that you will look back with many happy memories on your 2013 holiday in Ireland. Catherine
