I stayed for a week at The Granary with my boyfriend and I must say it was one of the best experiences of my life. We arrived one cold winter night at 1am. The cottage is totally immersed in the Irish countryside and I guess we were kind of lost, however suddenly we could see the lights of the cottage beaming at us cheerily from the road. We parked (there is ample parking space directly in front of the cottage) and as we entered, a warm colorful fire leapt from the very easy to use stove in the living room to welcome us.
The cottage is really beautiful - the living room has a very comfortable sofa, a flat screen TV, thick rugs and ample heating. The kitchen is just enormous and splendidly provides anything an experienced cook needs.
The owners are very friendly. They knew we were coming very late and would have no food for breakfast, so they left us not only their signiture home made scones (totally delicious), but also tea, coffee, fresh milk, jam and butter. The bedroom was spacious, clean, and very comfortable, and all the things we could need during our stay were provided, like toiletries, cleaning liquids, empty bags for shopping, as well as a very very big starter pack of wood, coal and firestarters for the stove (these lasted us for the whole week). There was also wi-fi on the premises.
In the morning, as soon as we opened the door, a joyous welcoming party consisting of two beautiful cats and a playful dog awaited us. They surrounded us and started playing with us - it was so charming! The dog from next door also payed us a couple of visits during our stay. Honestly - it was just like being at home!
Thanks for making our stay so special. I truly hope we may come back someday :)
