I stayed in the house with a group of colleagues as we were delivering a course in portlaoise. We wanted to find a place we could stay that was a home away from home and we got that and more! It is a beautiful house with everything you might need at hand. For us being warm and comfortable in a clean house is essential..we got that and more. The owners Dad lives near by so any problems and help is at hand as well as a warm welcome from all ..thank you!

“fabulous farmhouse”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

we stayed at the farmhouse as we had a family wedding nearby. The house was perfect, really tastefully decorated and beautiful garden surrounding it. We were three couples and a child and there was plenty of room and lots of toys/ things to amuse the baby. the kitchen is fully equipped so it was a pleasure to cook big family dinners. Nearby Emo court is a fab place for picnics and walks. Sll in sll a very relaxing break, would definitely recommend this property!

“Wonderful house for families in the middle of Ireland”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Me and my family stayed in this wonderful house in the Irish countryside, and we loved it. The garden is nice and the house is very spacious with everything you need during your stay there. Furthermore, it is very close to the local pub where it is possible to meet the locals. There are also two extremely friendly dogs that come to greet you every morning, so if you are a dog person you will love these two guys. The owners Justin and Vivienne made us feel really welcome and we would reccomend this amazing house to our friends anytime.

“Dream house in the Irish Countryside”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

Myself and my family cannot say enough about how amazing this farmhouse is and how much we enjoyed our stay here... not to mention that Vivienne and Justin were absolutely wonderful, and so accommodating and very helpful (ditto for their family we met; daughter Holly; and Justin's Father and brother JJ - hope I got all that correct).

From the moment you first make your way up the driveway, you can tell this is a special place, the farmhouse exterior commands a presence amongst the trees and well manicured yard. The farmhouse is situated on working livestock farm, which doesn't impose upon your stay with extra noise or anything, but certainly add to the experience and charm.

Two thinks struck me when we walked into and through the farmhouse interior... 1) this lovely farmhouse could be a set for a movie/tv series, 2) the house is immaculately clean and tidy. They have very thoughtfully designed the farmhouse, and furnished and decorated it to such a high standard while retaining traditional elements. In the colder months, using the fire place/stove in the living room and kitchen would be a fantastic comfort and add to the atmosphere.

I can't think of much of anything you'd need to bring for a longer stay, the kitchen is amply stocked with pretty much anything you could need for cooking and eating. As well as for laundry with washer, dryer, drying rack, iron, ironing board, etc. There a great playroom for kids at the back of house (not to mention the huge yard), which would leave adults to relax in the rest of the house.

The beds and linens were exceptionally comfortable and quality (might I say like sleeping on a cloud?), and the the waterfall showers were brilliant with hot water to spare for us all.

Added convenience, there's a huge Tesco about 15 minute away in Portlaoise with a good butcher - The Butchers Block - just outside the Tesco in the mall.

Can't get much better for a central location so you can go to explore Ireland either.

All-in-all, this is the best place we all can remember staying for a holiday. I hope we can make our way back soon for another family holiday.

Morette house is a beautiful family home and we loved staying there.
Vivienne and Justine made us feel so welcome, it was like a home from home.
All the family members fell in love with the house, the well in the kitchen was a real talking point.
We would love to go back and stay there again,
Thank you Vivienne and Justin for lending us your beautiful home.
