“Secluded and cosy”
Reviewed 16 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed here for a long weekend during the easter hols. Lovely place right by babbling stream, tons of space outdoors for kids to play. Inside the house is very comfortable and cosy. Kate the very helpful owner emailed great list of activities and places to eat in the area. Highly recommend using the Aga to cook everything but especially pizzas! Don't miss the soda bread from the deli on the road into Kilmore and great seafood from the fishing co-op..

many thanks for your feedback - we're delighted you enjoyed your stay so much.We love the privacy and the space for our kids to enjoy too.
I agree too , its marvelous being surrounded by excellent local organic suppliers - next time you come try the breaded "caught today" monkfish from the fish takeaway in Kilmore Quay !

“school holidays.”
Reviewed 28 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

what a fabulous place to stay, cosy and warm, comfortable beds with lovely fresh bedding, large garden to play in and the stream at the bottom, open fire which we used on a couple of occasions. we had a fantastic and relaxing time. Kate seems to have thought of everything and on the days when we had rain there were games to play and films to watch. The Aga was fun and easy to use and we cooked with the herbs available in the garden. Scar Bridge is ideally placed for trips out and we visited some lovely places i.e. Dollar Bay, Sandeel Bay, Bannow Drive with the most gorgeous beech at the end, Kilmore Quay.

Thank you for taking the time to review- its marvellous to get feedback. We put a lot of care into making sure that the house is pristine for each guests' arrival and that the grounds are well maintained ,colourful and interesting reflecting a typical period country residence - and hopefully our various picnic spots inspire restful hours with good cheeses and a glass or two of prosecco!
Our own children are 7 and 5 yrs so it is important for us that we know that they are safe and happy in the cottage and grounds. I have a background in interior design so its design and character are important for us and our own regular visits to Scar Bridge Cottage ensure that for own comfort it is well equipped and cosy. Hopefully our own needs match yours!
We'd love to welcome you back anytime - winter too is good with the large open fire and aga taking centre stage alongside the numerous local restaurants/pubs and refreshing beach walks !Not to forget The world famous opera Festival
Many thanks again for your kind comments- much appreciated
