There isn't enough I can say to encapsulate my all too brief stay at The Dairy Cottage. Directions were perfect. The Drive to the cottage brought us to beautiful countryside.
Sheila and Michael's kindness was evident from the beginning. We were greeted by a delicious apple tart. Perfection.
The Cottage was everything you imagine a beautiful Irish country cottage to be. What better way to immerse yourself in the experience of Ireland? This was just what I needed for my sons and I.
I traveled with 5 and space was plenty. We enjoyed the peat fires and also tea on the patio in the morning as we gazed at the sun rise, and at our neighbors, the cows. The smell of clean air, the expansive green that stretched beyond imagination, and the coziness that awaited us inside the cottage, made it hard to leave it each day for travels.
I am so happy that I was fortunate to glimpse this life, so very different from my own. I would come back here a thousand times over. Leaving it was one of hardest things I had to do, wishing for more time there is a wish well worth wishing. …
Gort na gCapall Cottage
Upon arrival, around 11pm, every light inside and outside was on to welcome us to 'our' charming vacation home! Not 10 minutes after our arrival, Jeanette popped in to give us a warm welcome and to answer any questions we had. This home is so charming and spacious! My husband, our 20-year-old son, my 79 year-old mother, and 82-year-old father-in-law, and I stayed in this bucolic home for five nights and could NOT have been happier! The master suite is on the second floor, and there is another room on the ground floor with an en suite, then two other bedrooms share a very spacious bath with a claw-foot tub and shower - so convenient for older parents who don't need to climb stairs.
It was so comforting to have an actual home to relax in each evening - soooo much nicer than hotel rooms or lobbies to visit in. Our luggage never made it to Ireland from Texas, so having a full laundry room in which we could repeatedly wash our limited wardrobes was fabulous!!
Gort na gCapall Cottage is in the country - the only sounds you might hear would be birds or livestock, but it was peaceful, beautiful, comfortable, and with the most gracious hosts for which one could ask. We based our travels from Country Tipperary, and there were a couple of days where the drive was a bit longer than we might have preferred, but the tranquility and privacy this sweet home offered more than compensated for any minor inconvenience.
If we ever have the opportunity to return to Ireland, you can bet we'll stay at the Seymours' rental home! …
Blackberry Cottage Coolbawn
beautiful cottage that includes everything one needs.
The cottage is the countryside, quite, surrounded by green fields with a lake near by. The only problem with the cottage is that its far from tourists sights. Has all amenities available. Looking forward to returning for another visit. …
Very comfortable cottage
Cottage is quite remote but in a lovely rural setting and a car is definitely recommended. It is well equipped and very comfortable. Alison provided a very generous welcome pack, wonderful home baking and was extremely helpful, even giving suggestions on things to do. …
