The best part of Evergreen cottage are its hosts. We feel in love with Ireland beginning with Bridget and Billy Bourke and their son James who runs the farm bordering the cottage. Despite arriving slightly ahead of schedule, we received a lovely warm reception. The Bourkes were gracious, friendly and helpful. They always had a free moment to chat to ask about our day which made us feel so welcome. The cottage itself is very comfortable and extremely quiet and private. The kitchen is well-equipped and although the cottage is not new, the facilities are more than adequate. We enjoyed the hiking trails immediately behind the cottage with forest walks to the top of the Galty mountains right on your doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. Evergreen cottage represented good value for our money with the privacy, peace and natural setting we were looking for. You will need a car to stay here but stores and the local town are convenient. Evergreen cottage is an ideal location from which to explore Ireland. It is centrally located with most popular destinations within an hour's drive. The best part is then coming back to this comfortable and peaceful cottage to rest up for the next day's explorations. Thank you to our hosts for making us feel so welcome. Ps- James has an adorable dog named Galty who we grew very fond of. He has to be on a leash because he has a dangerous habit of chasing things. Galty asked me to request that future guests bring him dog biscuits, he would appreciate that very much.
