“Perfect for our party the night before our wedding”

We booked out all of the Lough Derg cottages to host our pre wedding get together. Jeff & TJ were really helpful and accommodating. During our stay the staff could not do enough for us. Some of the cottages have been renovated but still retain their old world charm. The location is perfect as its right beside a shop and pub so had all that our guests required for the occasion. The green space is perfect especially for children and also the BBQ space is well done.

“A great visit”
Reviewed 9 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had a great time staying for 3 nights at these cottages with our 2 grandchildren. The accommodation was great and Margaret made us feel very welcome she suggested a couple of places to visit like Dromineer and Killaloe which were great with lots to do. The only downside was the Wi-Fi signal in number 9 was very poor.

“Cottage No 2 - very poor accommodation”
Reviewed 29 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We booked a thatched cottage through Groupon (for 3 nights) and were allocated cottage 2. On reading other reviews I have a feeling that we got the one cottage that wasn't renovated and isn't in good nick. We have stayed in lots of self catering houses and apartments over the years but this was definitely the poorest accommodation we ever had.

The kitchen was the worst - the fridge did not have a door for the freezer compartment so everything was semi frozen. We were told upon pointing this out that this would not affect our electricity charge but we ended up paying 12 Euro for 3 days anyway and also had to throw away vegetables that were unusable due to the freezer compartment issue.
Lots of the doors of the kitchen cabinets had no knobs.
The pots were dirty and extremely old - the coating of the pan and one pot was in tatters. There was one single lid - the plastic on it had melted and it was in no condition to be used. There was no fan extractor.
In one of the cupboards was a mouldy loaf of sliced pan that someone must have left behind.

The washing machine was ancient and the on switch was stuck in position.

The bathroom was fine. We had to bring our own towels though, unusual for a self catering cottage.

The tap in the toilet was dripping.

The living room was very small, we could never have had a meal at the dining room table (there was 5 of us), it was pushed against the wall but even so it was impossible to pass behind it as the sofa was right in front of it. We were lucky that the weather was so good, this allowed us to have our meals outside on the (very crooked) picnic table which we had to clean of birds' droppings before using it.

A light bulb up on the landing was not working, this was remedied when pointed out.

The beds were all really dated (the bed linen was fine, though) as were all the curtains and the sofa and rocking chairs.

There was a permanent smell of smoke in the house (from the fire place) which hit you as soon as you opened the door.

Lots of dogs around on our side of the cottages (there are two parts on both sides of the road) - didn't bother us but might bother people that are afraid of dogs.

Positives:

* Barbara was very friendly and helpful.
* The house is equipped with an ironing board and iron and a clothes horse - handy for drying towels after swimming.
* Lough Derg is close by with a swimming area in Dromineer (there is also a water park and paddle boats etc)
* The local shop around the corner is very handy.

“Idyllic cottage, lovely old Irish style, with everything supplied to make it a home from home.”

From the moment of booking, I found the team who run the cottages to be very helpful. Puckane village is an ideal base to explore Lough Derg. The cottage we stayed in (number 5) was lovely, and had a welcoming feel. The sitting room with its high ceiling was cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was equipt with EVERYTHING you could possibly need (even down to a flask for bringing hot water for picnics). The beds were comfy, with lovely soft pillows. The setting is in an idyllic little village, so sitting out on the bench outside in the mornings is a lovely way to start the day. We stayed for 3 nights, and on our last day Barbara told us not to rush to leave, so we had the comfort of using the house for a base for the full day. We will definitely be booking again. 3 days wasn't long enough

“Great spot for family get together”

We recently rented 3 of the cottages for 18 family members and everyone had a great time. The owner TJ gave us a great welcome on arrival and Margaret was brilliant from start to finish.

The tennis court nearby is in superb condition (small cost of 4 euros to use) and its easy to a have a football kick around on the green outside the cottages.

The pub and general store across the road are so convenient to the cottages.
Nenagh Golf course is nearby (about 10-15 minutes) and we had a game there with fabulous food after the game.

The village of Puckane is quiet with really friendly locals and in a way, its like a step back in time staying in the cottages in such a lovely little country area. We travelled to Dromineer which has beautiful views and access to Lough Derg and we also had a meal in The Thatched Cottage Bar in Ballycommon which was top class.
