“Lovely cottage in scenic location”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband and I stayed at the Coach House cottage in May and had a lovely stay. The cottage itself is quite large, spacious, and well maintained. The location is a great base for touring the area. The resident peacocks were a definite highlight, peeking in on us through the windows and glass doors hoping for handouts. Sadly no handouts were forthcoming so they would eventually wander away but we enjoyed seeing them and listening to their hilarious meowing every day! David and Liz were both very lovely people and were simultaneously helpful and non-intrusive. Some things to know before you arrive: You will need 2 euro coins in order to maintain power/electricity in the cottage. 2 euros will already be put into the little box before you arrive and that lasts for about a day or two, but if getting change may be an issue, bring some 2 euro coins in advance. You won't need very many. They last a long time if you don't use a lot of power. The stairs in the cottage are a tight spiral and fairly steep which could be an issue for those with mobility issues, young children or for larger/taller individuals. We are both fairly (relatively speaking!) young and didn't have any issues, but they did get a bit slippery in socked feet so I took to wearing slippers with grippy soles. The style of the stairs is attractive and really opens up the space and makes for a gorgeous big kitchen/living room area. We were at the cottage in May and the donkey's were fairly... ahem... enthusiastic at that time of year and there was a lot of vocalization day and night. It is a farm and it added to the charm to some extent, but be prepared in advance if you are a light sleeper. We can sleep through pretty much anything so we only really noticed it when awake and we were out exploring most of the time anyway! We found the bedrooms quite comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. You obviously need to bring your own groceries, but there were some odds and ends left by previous guests, so it might not hurt to arrive at the cottage before going out to get your supplies so you can see what is already there first. For example they may already have salt and pepper, laundry soap or washing up liquid (aka dish soap) so why buy it if you don't need to? The location was relatively close to the Avoca Woolen Mill, the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough which was wonderful. As I said, it was a great base for exploring. We would definitely stay again if back in the area and have already recommended it to friends.

“lovely location, very spacious with lots of natural light and excellent for our 3 boxer dogs”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Would stay here again, owner very friendly and the stove was alight when we arrived in the dark and cold of a November night. Best trips out was visit to Powerscourt, the beautiful coastal walk from Greystones to Bray and a walk up in the mountains at Glendalough.

“Incredible Hosts & Beautiful Property!”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This property was even more beautiful than the pictures show. The cottage was immaculate, completely in order, and very comfortable. The hosts were incredibly kind, available, and always willing to help. Thank you for a vacation that far exceeded any expectation or hopes we had. I hope our next vacation leaves us as happy as this one did! Thank you so much!! I can't recommend this property enough!

We are just home from a wonderful break in this cottage. The owners David and Liz are very friendly and helpful . The surroundings are beautiful with a lake and plenty of friendly animals. We enjoyed the company of the two peacocks - tame enough to feed by hand. The cottage is warm and inviting and ideally situated to explore the area. The electric gates leading to the property make it a safe environment for children. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
