We have had an amazing week in the lovely house of Trudy Mcguinness. The cottage was well equipped for a relax stay. We enjoyed the playroom with the snooker table, the computer to keep in touch with our friends and family and, the ensuite bedroom. Trudy gave us a warm welcome after we arrived at the holiday home. She was very kind and helpful. The cottage is located approximately 50 minutes from Dublin, by car. We used the P+R facilities near the motorway to visit the city centre. Also, the cottage was located near touristic attractions such as Trim, Boyne, and Hill of Tara.

My husband & I stayed here for a week in June with our two kids aged 4 & 2. The house itself is immaculate and has loads of space inside. The kitchen is well equipped and the washer & dryer in the utility room came in very handy. The garden is kept in first class condition, a credit to Trudy & Paddy. When the gates were closed we could let the kids outside to run about without fear of them getting on to the road, it was very secure. The area is so quiet and peaceful, all you can hear are the birds singing in the morning! It is however well located to explore the many attractions in the area. Dublin zoo & Tayto park are 50 min away, We also enjoyed Lullymore Heritage Park and Belvedere Gardens. Trudy is a lovely host, who was always on hand if we needed anything. All in all we had a lovely stay and hope to be back again some day.

ona is a fantastic place to stay so tranquil and relaxing. The house is immaculately maintained with plenty of room. The living room is so comfy with a touchscreen pc and internet.My girls loved the garden and as we had beautiful weather played games outside every night. I enjoyed morning runs on the scenic royal canal. There are good shops nearby in Longwood, Enfield and Kinnegad. We had a delicious dinner at the Monastery Inn Clonard and Woks takeway Longwood good too. Aside from Tayto Park and Dublin Zoo do the Trim Castle tour really interesting history and the beautiful Belvedere House with stunning walks and lake. Trudy was an excellent hostess and really went out of her way to make our stay so good. Highly recommended!!!

Stayed at this property for one week early September. We were a large family group in need of 3 bathrooms and lots of space. This property did not disappoint. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owner Trudy was very helpful and had left toiletries and cleaning products for our use. Facilities and equipment very good. Free internet access was very useful (no wi-fi). Property is a short drive from Enfield where there are shops and bars. Furey's Bar/Restaurant was so good, we ate there 4 times during the week - only a 5 minute drive from the property. 4 white cats and 2 kittens visited daily and would sit outside the patio doors hoping to be fed. They never tried to venture indoors. We spent little time at the property during the day as our plans included excursions as far north as Carlingford and south to Waterford - but we were always pleased to return each evening.

Myself and my 3 sisters (all seniors) stayed here for the last week in September. The house was just as described in the advertisement. It is in a very rural setting on quite a spacious site. The road has a few other houses and it is a lovely area for a walk. At the end of the road is the canal and I believe there is a walkway alongside it. The house itself has 4 bedrooms all very nicely laid out.The kitchen was very well equipped with all the cutlery, tableware etc and there was no shortage of plastic bags for bins, kitchen paper, tea towels, toilet paper etc. The freezer had some frozen goods for us and there was milk in the fridge. All these are very welcome as the nearest shop is about 3 miles away. The sitting room was very comfortable with a log burner and a supply of logs, and every room was warm and cosy. There was a lovely spacious front garden with apple trees - one of which was laden with apples. On our stay there were at least 6 resident cats who entertained us with their antics. While we were there we saw the farmer in the adjoining field rounding up his sheep with the sheep dog and it was like live theatre. All in all this was probably one of the best houses we have stayed in over the past 15 years and would be perfectly suited to a family. Plenty of space for children both outside and in. Nothing was spared here, even the towels in the bathroom were of the very fluffy white variety that would be seen in the best hotels. The only negative was the size of the ensuite in the main bedroom. It was very small and difficult for one of our group to use it who has mobility problems.

I stayed at Iona with my two young children (3yrs and 1yr), my mother and my sister with her son (3yrs). It was a perfect set up for us, with all the space we needed. We were mainly in Ireland to spend time with my grandfather who lives just outside Dublin, and we were truly sorry we weren't able to spend more time enjoying this house and location (despite having a wonderful time with him!). We arrived in the dark so although we knew we were in a very rural location we were unprepared for the beautiful sight when we opened our curtains onto the view to the rear of the property in the morning. With the morning sun coming up through the trees and the mist in the fields it was really magical. And the only sound the birds and the sheep occasionally baa-ing! We were very grateful for the supplies which Trudy had left for us and she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We didn't get much opportunity to use the kitchen but it seemed far better equipped than many cottages I have stayed in. The two three-year-olds thought this place was amazing and wanted to play hide and seek all the time. I now really want to come back here for a family holiday and bring my husband too!

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. It was very spacious, restful, well stocked, and about as perfect as one could expect. My family and I highly recommend Iona.
