“Another superb stay at The Dunes!”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My third trip to The Dunes at Ballinesker. Never disappoints and always restores my spirit and energy.

Thank you to owners Dee and Jon for making our stay so comfortable.

“Perfect Beach Location”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Beautiful cottage located right on Curracloe beach. We stayed with our 1 year old daughter and our dog and The Dunes was perfect for us. Plenty to do, located near Blackwater farm, Wells House, Johnstown Castle and Wexford town. Great break, highly recommend.

“Wonderful Homely Cottage by Beautiful Beech.”
Reviewed 3 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is our second time in this idyllic cottage, we were late trying to book last year so missed our break here. However we booked our week for end of June this year and we had a fabulous time. The newly thatched roof really improved the whole look of the cottage. Apart from the fully kitted out cottage, with all you could want, our boys really loved the seaside which is literally out the door. I would like to thank Dee and Mary for the clean and tidy condition of the house and its authentic homely feel, and could not recommend it highly enough if you are looking for a quiet seaside break.

The accommodation was perfect, the location was perfect and we were very lucky to have very good weather we could not have asked for more. The caretaker was very friendly and looked after us very well.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My husband and I stayed in the delightful thatched cottage which was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need including items for the beach. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and the lounge area plenty of sofas. The kitchen also had everything you need. The location of the property was amazing, the most breathtaking beach was literally just over the dune. The cottage isn't far from a local shop on good roads and easily accessible to vist other parts of Wexford County. We were not blessed with good weather but the cottage has a good tv signal and plenty of board games/books available. Pleny of good bird watching too. The caretaker and owners looked after us well, ensuring that all was well during our stay.

“Return visit to The Dunes”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Once again, we had a lovely stay at this beautiful cottage. Deirdre has added a veranda at the back of the garden which is an ideal spot to view the sunset over a glass or two of wine. All in all, a very relaxing visit and a great way to re-charge the batteries.
