My wife and I have been going back to the Farm Cottages twice a year since May 2008, and will keep going back.
They are very roomy cottages with three double size bedrooms that will sleep 6 people easily.
The gardens are large and well kept, also there is a full size tennis court and swings for the young ones.
The village ( Castletownroache ) is 1.5kl away with good shops and a very good butcher, also the people are helpful and friendly.
Mallow & Fermoy are not far away if you need to go for the supermarkets to do a big shop.
You are also in a good position for going siteseeing as you are based in the middle lower half of Southern Ireland, so days out are on the cards.
The owners of the cottages also run a dairy herd on the farm 1/2kl away, in the spring they have calves that are a joy to see and feed, also chickens.
There is also fishing down on the river just below the farm, if you dont fish its a nice walk.
