"Perfect for our family."
This was just what we needed. Stunning views, a great location. Several noisy but very friendly dogs, a puppy, and a cat, which made our 4 and 8 year olds holiday. The cottage was a bit lacking if … More

Thank you for the great review we were really delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Our esb, heating oil,& gas for 30 euro for a week is a bargin! When you see the bills we receive for the house. As you are free to put heating on and off as you wish and if you put €30 worth in the tank and had it on all week it would not last, that is not even talking about esb or gas we like to be fare and give value for your money and I do think you got that. I really appreciate your great comments best wishes.

Lovely secluded rural location adjacent to the owners farm, surrouded by fields and lovely views across Bannow Bay. You can hear the warbling of the birds on the water in the evening and in the morning which was very relaxing. We found the owners very helpful and on hand when we needed assistance. The only slight issue we had was finding it - its not actually that difficult - just that we didnt check until the last minute and found out there were no real directions on the description. That said, you can always ask the locals - they were more than happy to try and help and direct us. The cottage was lovely and just as you would expect an Irish cottage to be with a roaring fire to sit round in the evening. Its exactly as you see in the pictures. Would definitely recommend for most people and we would go back.

"A Most Relaxing Holiday."
Clonmines, Bannow Bay an unspoilt part of South County Wexford. We received a warm welcome on arrival. The House was very spacious and comfortable with a lovely view of Bannow Bay. This is the family holiday where you just want to chill out and relax.If, you want to take a few day trips you are very central for that. I am into photography and this part of Ireland is paradise. Overall a great holiday.
