The hospitality shown to us by the owner was tops. He couldn't have done enough to make our stay unforgettable. Had total comfort, was beautifully appointed and furnished with such taste. If you need a total get away to relax, knowing the owner is within the grounds and you feel secure, Ruah Cottage is the place for you!

The owner was very personable and we really enjoyed getting to know him. The cottage was perfect for us. Ruah Cottage is in a perfect place to really explore the coastal areas as well as being near to Shannon Airport.

The owner was very helpful at all times. Although some areas were understandably a little crowded, it was still possible to get away from everything and see some wonderful scenery. Having stayed at various properties in England Wales over a period of about 20 years, this cottage is one of the best.

My trip was very easy to book, thanks to Sykes Cottages and Chris, the property owner, with clear, quick and friendly communication and information. Travel to the property was easy, I used public transport all the way from Dublin to Listowel and it connected well. Then Chris came and picked me up from the bus stop! My arrival at Ruah Cottage could not have been better. Chris is (a cliche, I know, but true) the consummate owner/host. The cottage is in the grounds of his house and he couldn't have been more hospitable - yet I also felt like I was totally on my own in my little hideaway when I needed to be. I can thoroughly recommend staying in this property without a car, despite its countryside location - because of its countryside location: lots of lovely long, relaxing walks to be had. Indeed, the cottage itself, and its location, make it one of the most calm and relaxing places I've ever stayed - perfect if you are looking for peace and calm. It's an hour or so's walk into Listowel and there's lots to see there, if you want. The cottage was the perfect set-up for me. The bedroom was comfy, the light in the living area was second to none and the kitchen was great for cooking. if you want to get away and feel your worries peel off your shoulders, this is the place.

06/06/15 to 20/06/15 There is something magical about Ruah cottage. If you could see the reviews in the guest book left at the cottage (Pity they didn't write them on Ruah site) everyone says the same thing "Its tranquility" As soon as you walk in the cottage it has that lovely worm cozy feeling about it. Chris himself is one in a million nothing is to much trouble ( I wanted to have my car cleaned while I was there, But dare not ask Chris where I could have got it done because I'm sure he would have valeted it for me). We will be going back again that's for sure. We made a great discovery and a great friend Pat & Harry Wood Grimsby UK

A home from home during one of the coldest weeks of the year. The owner had provided a welcome pack and stayed to make sure I had everything I needed on arrival. Information booklet very easy to understand. The cottage is warm and welcoming with everything you would need for a quiet stay. Location excellent and a good base for exploring Clare, Limerick and Kerry.

Ruah Cottage was excellent and the owners were a marvellous host. Ruah cottage is located in a rural setting with lovely views across lush green fields. The owner provided excellent advice on the best things to do to get a flavour of Ireland in the three days we were there and we had a wonderful time - the Dingle Peninsula is just magnificent.
