“Minimalist luxury in a gem of a garden”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our Host, June, couldn't have been more generous, warm and helpful, re places to go, things to do. (a must is her brother Jimmi's garden, just down the road)
This amazing apartment has been built inside the old stone walls of a cowshed. The design is stark, almost austere, modern, but the perception of "stark" was soon dispelled by the warmth of the underfloor heating and our delight at the thoughtful, innovative design and comfortable fittings and furniture.
It is set in the garden June has created and though dismissive of her efforts she is obviously a serious plants woman and inspired designer. June was happy to show and talk to us about her garden, keen gardeners from altogether different climbs!
Things to watch:
Polished cement work tops are porous and stain +++
The shower, with no screen, is a little chilly and messy, requiring towels to dry the loo and floor, but these quickly dried with the excellent venting and heating, and we loved the audacity of the design.
Thanks, June and we hope the bench top was easily fixable!

Liked best: The garden or the design, hard to chose
Liked least: The cement benchtops in kitchen as I put a big stain on them first night!

“Fantastic building and gardens”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is an amazing modern building which is clean fascinating and a pleasure to stay in. Very quiet location and about 1 mile from pub or somewhere to eat. June is very welcoming and helpful and her gardens are amazing and well worth a walk around.

“Stylish Retreat in a Beautiful Garden”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cow house offers very comfortable accommodation in an architect designed conversion of an old building. It is tucked away in the corner of a courtyard within a stone's throw of one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland. A delight in every respect, most especially for lovers of contemporary architecture and gardens. Highly recommended!
