Thank you Fergal & Annette for a relaxing weekend. We arrived on Friday evening with 2 very excited girls. The log fire was blazing away & a lovely basket of freshly baked scones were just waiting to be devoured . Fergal gave us the run down of how everything worked which was all very easy. We all got settled in, girls off to bed, wine open feet up. We even skyped some relation in Australia to show them round! Wifi a big plus. The girls were up early the next morning, listening to fantastic bird song, they then headed out to have great fun in the playground, tree house & sand pit, all within eyeshot of the cabin. 3 days of just pure bliss, highly recommend.

“Beautiful comfortable cabin, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

The cabin itself is just beautifully made and maintained. It's very comfortable inside, lovely fixtures & fittings. Was ideal for just a couple, but would be lovely with one or two kids also.

The kitchen is perfectly equipped. The wood burning stove is very simple to use and really does heat the whole cabin. Bathroom, shower etc are lovely. It is cosy inside, the dining table isn't that big, But it was perfect for the two of us.

The grounds are delightful. There are wonderful areas for kids and it seemed very safe. The pond is a good distance from the cabin and any other water is fenced off.

I can also recommend the Chinese takeaway in Gowran! There is tea, coffee, sugar and some other bits there when you arrive. But no milk/bread. So you'd be best to bring some. We arrived late (about 9pm), the shop in Gowran was closed so make sure you have a few essentials with you.

There is WiFi in the cabin, which was a lovely surprise.

We would certainly return.

Directions are grand, but could do with a sign when you get in the gate as it was dark and we weren't sure to go left or right in the gate - v. minor issue I know!

“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed in the Clover Cabin for 2 nights, March 20th-22nd. We found the cabin to be very comfortable and inviting. The stove was already lightening when we arrived and a basket of welcoming scones were on the counter top which was a very nice touch. As the weather was pretty poor during our stay we didn't get to enjoy much of the outdoor facilities which during the summer would be great for small kids, the playground, soccer goal, pond and the covered outdoor area for barbeques, complete with outdoor sound system and toilets. We travelled as a group of 5, my parents in law, our 1 year old daughter, my wife and myself and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The only drawback I found and the reason for not giving the cabin the full 5 stars was that to access the toilet upstairs you have to go through the babies \ children's bedroom and for us it was not worth the risk of waking the baby during the night, so we had to use the toilet down stairs, other than that I could not fault the place and will without doubt return before the year is out.

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Would highly recommend a visit to clover cabin. I spent a few days there with my sister, neice and my mum. The downstair bedroom and bathroom were ideal as my mum uses a walking aid. Fergal was very welcoming on arrival and he had the wood burning stove already set up for us. My 5 year neice really enjoyed the Tree House and swings.

“wonderful wooden oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

im not one to leave reviews but i think clover cabin deserves some kudos!
we have stayed all over ireland in selfcatering which normally ranges from terrible to functional or just plain ok! clovercabin is one of the nicest placest we have ever stayed anywhere. a really enjoyable week for myself my wife and our 3year old son.our week there was in winter in the middle of a very intense storm which did alot of damage to the surrounding area,but the cabin itself was incredibly warm and safe and we found it very comfortable.the cabin was very clean,everything you need for a comfortable stay was provided.its warm cosy and have a lovely homeliness about it.our son loved the garden and playhouse and playground.there is a massive roofed area outside so even if the weather is bad you can still get outside.it was febuary when we stayed but i would love to see it in spring/summer as the cabin is totally surrounded by trees,very private.kilkenny town is 5 mins drive which is great and the local reptile zoo was fantastic.all in all great stay! during the storm when the electics went,the owner provided us with candles ,torches and a gas stove,which actually made it even more charming!! really enjoyed our stay and wouldnt hesitate to go back.

“Cosy corner in Kilkenny”

So glad I stumbled upon Clover Cabin. My partner and I booked a two night stay in November and due to a family death in the locality at short notice we were accommodated a night early. We had our 5 month old son with us and it worked out very well. It is such a cosy place to stay and the facilities are fantastic. We curled up each night in front of the log stove and chilled out. There is an amazing outdoor area for BBQ's in the summer and a great tree house and swing set for kids. The garden is very well maintained and the porch and balcony areas are fab too! We were greeted with all info and some lovely home made scones which we devoured!! We would defiantly recommend to friends. We have done already... Also only a short drive from the city. One thing I would have liked is to be able to go for a walk with a buggy without driving. Oh and all the little personal touches around the cabin were lovely esp. the egg holder loved it so much I bought one!!

“A really beautiful place, cant wait to go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Myself my husband and our two children spent three nights at clover cabin a week before Christmas, even though we were with the children it still felt like a romantic getaway. The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need. It is a peaceful place with beautiful walks, everyday we went to the delicatessen in the nearby village just a mile away to pick up some of the best food! it really was a treat. The wood burning stove heats the cabin in seconds. It was lovely being there in the winter with the frost outside in the morning! Fergal and Annette were very accommodating they even provided us with fresh home made scones on arrival. I am looking forward to going back to clover cabin especially in the summer as the private playground looks fab! thanks again Fergal and Annette for having us.
Fiona and Gordon Bishop.
