“Interesting, friendly and comfortable.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very impressive property run by Anna, an extremely helpful and friendly owner. It was very relaxing and quiet. We all loved the character and location and my grandson especially loved the hens and donkeys. Our visit was only 4 days and would have loved to have spent longer.

“Peaceful, tranquil getaway”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Myself and my family stayed at Butlerstown Castle in Tomhaggard during June 2013. We had a beautiful, peaceful time. It was a lovely switch off from our busy lives. My three year old daughter had the opportunity to feed the hens every morning and we walked up and down the very quiet lane ways. The farm animals were like pets and the children really enjoyed them. The quality of the accommodation was excellent. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and quiet. We had a chance to take a tour of the old castle which was a great experience too. The owner was most welcoming and helpful.
Great memories and we hope to return to this little hidden gem.

“A First Class Stay”
Reviewed 10 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I have never written a review before but having many years experience of Self-Catered Holidays I have a lot to compare Boxwell Cottage with. The owner was extremely helpful and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The cottage has been beautifully finished and the beds were extremely comfortable. The location is so peaceful and yet Wexford and Rosslare are close enough if needed. I would have no worries about recommending the cottage and when we return to Wexford - as I know we will - I know where we will stay .

Found this gem on the internet and decided to contact the owner for a short 4 day stay. This was no problem. On our arrival we were greeted by Anna (the owner) who showed us around and introduced 'Bono' her Jack Russell to our delighted 1 1/2 year old son. Each morning Anna would call to the cottage to see if our son would like to accompany her to feed the chickens and hens. Which of course he did daily. This is a wonderfully peaceful and historical place. It is ideal for a family getaway and pretty easy to get around to pubs, shops and to Wexford. I love this place and will return. Do not hesitate in any way in visiting this magical place.

“Beautiful cottages in an idyllic country setting”

We had an amazing time at Butlerstown Castle Cottages. We rented the two cottages which are right beside each other. They are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We arrived to an open fire and some lovely flowers. The herb gardens surrounding the cottages are beautiful and we had breakfast and lunch outside in the sunshine. We took a trip to the Saltee Islands which was spectacular and our hosts Anna and Jim were more than helpful ensuring that we had a great stay. I would thoroughly recommend these cottages for a little bit of luxury to get away from it all. I will definitely be back!
