“All the comforts of home in a PERFECT setting” The pictures on the website only hint at the real charm of this house. We arrived to a spotless house, turf fires burning in the parlor fireplace and dining room stove, a welcoming apple pie and chilled bottle of wine, every appliance one needs for their stay (hair dryer, iron, washer/dryer, satellite TV, radiant heat throughout, all kitchen appliances are first rate). The owner had recently mowed walking paths along the river and elsewhere throughout the many-acre property. Patio furniture and picnic table/bench by the river looked brand new. Book shelf was filled with an eclectic assortment - something for everyone, including children. The house is a lovely 20 minute walk into the town of Gurteen, where the shop-keepers and "Publicans" were very welcoming. If you wish for a quiet country retreat, or a home-base from which to explore Ireland, this is the perfect spot.
