“Millknock Farm” The house was perfect for us, very clean, lots of room for all of us and a lovely welcome. Had the weather been better the kids would have loved the garden. Nothing was too much trouble for Gavin and his family. The scones also went down well. :)
Beautiful, comfortable, warm, relaxing and quiet. We felt like welcome guests. Our children explored the orchard and fed apples to the donkeys. Our hosts were amazing and gave us the most incredibly informative tour of the castle. We have already booked our next stay. …

Amazing space for extended families
We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Butlerstown Castle. The renovation of the old cow sheds is amazing resulting in 2 stunningly decorated cottages. Both are really comfortable with excellent heating and hot water, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchens are very well equipped. The kids really enjoyed feeding the animals and one of the highlights of the weekend was Jim's tour of the old Butlerstown Castle itself which was quite magical. I would have no hesitation in recommending these properties particularly for extended families. We were 13 in total with 6 adults, 4 teenagers and 3 children. …
Excellent Holiday Home
Let me start with Mr. Gavin, the owner of this property. He is very helpful from the booking towards the end of our stay at Millknock Farm. His response for my messages and queries were very quick and detailed.
On the arrival to the house, we were welcomed by Mr. Gavin, who lives in the next building. A detailed introduction were given about the facilities of the houses and about the shops nearby. A tray full of fresh Garden strawberries, Home made Scones and fresh Butter from his own farm were kept on the big dining table for our refreshment. Miliknock farm is a very big house which gave more than enough space for our team of 6 adults and 6 kids. Kitchen is very big. Dining table is big enough for 12 people. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Very big bathrooms and toilets and all places were kept very neat and clean. Towels and quilts were spotless. Information leaflets and a detailed map were provided at the entrance hall and that is a great help to know the main attractions of Wexford and food outlets.
The well kept play area on the front side was a paradise to our kids. Strong slings and slide were there for smaller kids. A football post is provided for senior kids and adults. We spend most our daytime there with our kids playing football and other games. More toys were kept in the toy box and you can enjoy the day without worrying kids disturbing you.
You may have to spare some 2 euro coins to pay the electricity. But don't worry electricity is very cheap here. 4 nights and 5 days cost us only 9.00 euros. You may take kitchen tissues and toilets tissues with you as the house provides no fill ups. A few more glasses of the same size (for both wine and hot drinks) would have provide great ambiance to the dining table.
The nearest grocery shop is 4 km far from the house, but you can find a decent Pub were you can take your family within a walking distance.
Thank you Gavin for the farm made fresh lactose and for the farewell pack of strawberries. You are a wonderful host.
Our 12 member group found Millknock farm is a wonderful base for exploring Wexford. I will strongly recommend Millknock farm for a peaceful and calm and bit remote holiday yet not too far from a beautiful busy town.
Thank you "Holiday Letting company for help us to find such a nice place to spend our holidays
