“A truly stunning property that everyone should visit... we'll be back!”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Myself, my partner and a couple of friends recently stayed in Morette House and we cannot say enough about it. The pictures don't do this place justice, the house itself is absolutely stunning, the decor in every single room is so unique, we really loved everything about it, from the cast-iron radiators to the bedside lockers - just top class. The kitchen really is the heart of this home - it's views of the garden (one you could only wish for) and the well feature really make it one of a kind. Everything we needed was there for us.

We had are own taxi service - make sure you contact John at Portlaoise Bus Hire.

Finally, Justin is an absolute pleasure to deal with, a real gent. We're looking forward to our return trip already.

“Best holiday home ever!”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We really enjoyed our week at the farmhouse. The house is beautiful and very clean and Justin is very friendly and helpful. In the house there is everything you need and we felt like kings and queens for a week! When we arrived at the farmhouse we couldn't believe this beautiful house was ours for a week. Our kids also loved the house. We visited beautiful Irish places but every day we came home the dogs were waiting for us and we loved that. It was really our best holiday ever. Thanks to Justin and the dogs who made our stay really pleasant.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Morette House is a beautiful home located in the countryside within driving of a lot of locations. We did daytrips to Wexford, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wicklow, Tullamore, County Tipperary to name a few while still enjoying the towns and villages in the surrounding area. It was a fabulous home to start and end our day enjoying either breakfast or dinner on the patio. Waking up each morning to the mist coming off the land and the cows moving from field to field was really enjoyable. You can see there is a lot of love put into this home and if you wanted to just seat and enjoy your surroundings it could easily be done. We will definitely be back and will recommend it to friends traveling to Ireland.

“Beautiful, peaceful place”

We spent 10 days at Morette House with our 3 children, ages 12, 9 and 7. It is a perfect place for families - large garden to play in, a playroom inside, and the big kitchen/dining room where we spent most of our time. After a very long journey from Japan, we appreciated that everything we could possibly need was there - from the washing machine and drier and comfortable beds to the wifi, cafetiere and every possible kitchen utensil, and even down to a chilled bottle of New Zealand wine in the fridge! The warm welcome was appreciated, too. In terms of location, Morette House is ideal for day trips out to different parts of Ireland, and we enjoyed trips to Dublin, Kilkenny, the coast near Waterford and the Rock of Cashel, amongst other places. If we return to Ireland for a holiday again, we definitely will not waste time looking for anywhere different to stay! Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.

We had the most friendliest of welcomes and the house was a sight for tired eyes. The place is perfect for getting away from the din of cities. The house is so peaceful, the interior decor outstanding and inspiring. To top it all the lovely dogs, Socks and Rockie and a few other wee visitors welcomed us every time we left and came back.

We will come again and again and.........

“Beautiful house in a perfect location for site-seeing”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I dont normally go to the effort of leaving reviews, however after a fantastic holiday, I felt it would be wrong not to. 3 reasons why I would highly recommend this property if you wish to stay ireland;
1) This house is amazing! Without causing offence - The pictures don't do it justice. From the outside it looks as a lovely farmhouse - but inside feels like a brand new house finished to a high standard. It is sometimes hard to find somewhere to accommodate & occupy a 2 year old, but there was a dedicated play room perfect for our daughter (who named it 'her room'!)
2)Justin (the owner) was a fantastic host, who met us on arrival - showing us around the house, and was always more than accommodating when i had car trouble the night before leaving. His family were equally friendly and it was great chatting to his father who lives near by - Top bloke! Even 'Socks' and 'Rocky' - The 2 dogs who lived next door - were always nearby for playing - who were our daughters best friends by the end of the holiday!
3)It was perfect for travelling. Loads to see locally, but only 45 mins from dublin, and 2 hrs from Galway, meant we aimed to do/visit at least 2/3 things a day comfortably.
