Stayed with brother-in-law for four nights while on a kayaking trip on the Grand Canal from Tullamore to Dublin. Great place to stay, lovely cottage five metres from canal in centre of Robertstown. The home made scones waiting on the dining table for us when we arrived were very much appreciated after a long day paddling and towpath cycling. Very...

My husband and I were accompanied on this trip by my mum so the cottage was perfect for us as we each had our own bedroom with the living room to share. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for an extended stay. There...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review, we very much appreciate it. As we are in a rural location yes sometimes the WIFI lets us down but glad that the meeting room worked out for you to keep in touch with family "down under". Hope to see you again soon, Karen
