“A wonderful beach side gem”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have rented quite a few holiday homes but this really was one of the best. The location alone is just wonderful. In two minutes you are on the spectacular Curracloe beach that even the most dedicated couch potato couldn't help themselves walking and walking and walking. After which you can sleep like a baby in the cosy and beautifully maintained cob cottage that is The Dunes. The owners have done a very tasteful restoration, all perfectly in keeping with such a period cottage. Everything you could need was provided and anything you could want is pretty much a short drive away in the town of Wexford which seems to be thriving. We would recommend this house without hesitation. Michael and Orlagh

“You could not get a better seaside beach location for children”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

There were to of us with our two boys aged 7 & 8, We all had an absolutely great time. The beach was just out the door literally and the cottage was a picture with all you would need for a sea side holiday. We would totally recommend this location and quaint property.

“Chocolate box cottage in perfect location for beach and outdoor lovers”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed here for a week with my family, including a four year old and a teenager. It truly is right next to the beach, just a short hop over the dunes, so no driving to the beach or lugging things with you, you don't even need to take a towel! There is an outdoor shower on a tree in the garden for after the beach. One day I popped back and made a cup of tea and brought it back to the beach. (I needed the tea to warm me up, we didn't get great weather). Despite the weather there is plenty of fun to be had on the beach and in the sea, in the nearby forest, and in Wexford generally. When we wanted to just relax in the cottage there were stacks of DVDs, games and books. It was cosy and comfortable and all our needs were catered for.
