The location is superb, idyllic, peaceful and isolated from the rat race. Waking up to the sound of river flowing outside. The open fire provided the warmth and comfort on the wet and windy winters night

Peaceful and quiet location, close enough to get to all the places we wanted to visit.

A lovely house in a lovely setting, plenty of room for a family of four and great to have three bathrooms. The decking area next to the river was lovely and the next best thing to a sea view!

Travelled down from Derry and couldn't have been happier when we got there, a pint of milk and a couple of the essentials after a long drive was much appreciated. The house itself is so warm and welcoming that we could have spent the week indoors and been perfectly happy. The garden was very well maintained with a variety of plants in full bloom. The lawn was freshly cut and the meadow was alive with butterflies. The highlight for us however was the decking overhanging the river. The river is fast flowing but well fenced off in main garden, a careful approach with smaller children is recommended though. Alot of time was spent watching the little grey wagtails bringing their chicks to the riverbank to feed. All of this combined with the beautiful Nire Valley, the quiet village of Ballymacarbrey and the surrounding Commeragh mountains made this a fantastic base to explore and enjoy the beautiful south of Ireland. 5 stars doesn't do it justice! We will be back. Thanks to the owner and key holders for a great holiday?

The cottage is a must for those looking for peace and quiet, situated in a beautiful part of Waterford. A car is a must because the area is quiet remote, there is a small village down the road which has a pub, which i hear is very popular and a local convenience store. The Cottage itself is very comfortable and decorated to a high standard, downstairs is a large country style kitchen (my favorite room) , a large lounge with an open fire and a downstairs bathroom complete with shower. There is also another single bedroom on the ground floor which we didnt use. The downstairs shower is ideal for tiny terrors like ours who went straight into shower on our return from "mucky" walks. There is also a bathroom upstairs with a bath and two large bedrooms. One of the unique parts of the cottage is its situated almost IN a river. Don't worry you don't wake up to floods but the back of the cottage has a large veranda that hangs over the river. This will be a fantastic place to sit in the summer and I am sure most nights will be spent out "on the deck". We stayed during October but loved every day that we were there, exploring the immediate vicinity and further afield as far as Cork City. There is also large garden which our dog loved to explore. The owners of the cottage are very helpful and only live down the road should you require them. I would definitely return to Nile Valley cottage, our children loved it, the dog loved it and my wife and I would like to move there.
