The cottages lie in the heart of the village that's a stones throw away from the friendly local pub and shop. Once you've disconnected from life's daily dramas it's easy to blend into this happy & welcoming community. Inside the cottage I fell head over heals in love with the open fire, natural beams, stone floors and all the usual nooks and crannies one would expect from an authentic cottage. The cottage contained a fully equipped kitchen, small flat screen TV, bath/shower in a large spacious area. While there I enjoyed the beautiful hiking trails, collected some winter woolly bargains in the very fine John Hanly Wollen Mills, did some hiking around the Cliffs of Moher & visited the Rock of Cashel. I also spent some beautiful evenings watching the sun set on the mighty Lough Derg.
