Will be returning. Really sweet cottage, short walk to shops and pubs. Thomastown and it's people are fantastic and very friendly, gorgeous scenery and 15 minute train ride to Kilkenny.

We thought it was cosy, quirky and a lovely insight in to how living in a typical Irish cottage would be. The bed and bedding were excellent and so comfortable. The whole cottage was very well laid out and had everything you could ever need for a stay. Overall we were extremely happy with our week stay and will definitely recommend to friends and family, and it will be our first choice next time we visit Kilkenny.

I love how cosy this cottage is. As soon as you step in you can really feel that the owner put their heart in the building process. There was nothing more romantic than sitting in front of the warming stove with a nice glass of wine. The bedroom and bed were just excellent. It is very close to town but also quiet enough to relax. We will definitely be back.

It's our last night here and it's been wonderful. The cottage is lovely. Perfect for the two off us. Tradionally built with charming addition of a well equipt kitchen and lovely bedroom in the eves. The Woodburner has kept us cosy all week. We've really enjoyed ourselves.

For two people, this is a great location to explore the whole SE area of Ireland. There is nothing really wrong with the cottage. It offers everything a couple needs for a nice vacation. And it is everything that the rental company says it is. However: 1. It was dirty. There were cobwebs everywhere. It needs a heavy cleaning. Whatever cleaning service is used, it is evident that the cleaning is superficial and minimal. No one has dusted above eye level or below the waist for a long time. A wood stove always causes dirt problems, but it would be nice to start a holiday with a clean rental. This is an easy fix. 2. Renters should know that there are NO laundry facilities anywhere within 10-15 Kilometers! We knew there was no washing facilities in the cottage. But nothing in the area?! We asked every one we could find. There is a drop off dry cleaner at the downtown "grocery", but NO laundry anywhere. Sink washing and hang drying is at least a 48 hour process if accomplished in the cottage due to the rain and humidity. The ownership could give the renter a list of some kind of nearby wash/laundry facilities! That would be an easy fix to the problem. Two fixes and it would be an outstanding rental!
