    “We are a family of 7 who stayed for a summer holiday.”

    Lovely peaceful location, only 15 mins from Dungarvan and 20 mins to Clonea beach,with plenty to do in the area. Siobhan was so helpful and welcoming. Excellent for children, ours loved the freedom of the garden and woods. We would happily go back.
