“Received a warm greeting upon arrival with a full walk through of the house to ensure we would be comfortable.”
The house is full of character, nicely furnished and decorated, providing all the comforts of home. Very comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and plenty of room for the whole family. Property is well located to explore southeastern Ireland. Many thanks to the Walsh's for ensuring we had all we needed at all times. I definitely recommend choosing this property for your stay.

“Prospect cottage is a unique building with special features and as it is on different levels it should be highlighted in the house description that there are some steep steps which proved challenging to the elderly members of our party The towels were old and jaded Some of the basics were in short supply - 2 saucepans and one lid Starter pack for fire was not visible Oven was dirty The owners responded quickly to our request for side plates as there were only 2 plastic side plates and also to replace light bulbs The beds in the 2 main bedrooms had good mattresses and and fresh bed linen.”
However the remaining beds had very bad pillows and mattresses which were difficult to sleep on The bed linen was shabby and there were no protective covers under the pillow cases Some of the Quilts were shabby worn and filthy and were not of a fit standard to provide to any paying guests. One bed side light in each room was not adequate and it was generally difficult to read as lighting was poor. The reading room had a comfortable suite and nice decor The sitting room suite was worn and the seats so low if was difficult to rise out of it. The TV remote control did not work properly. As this was not a cheap house to rent we expected a good standard overall but were disappointed as it cheaply equipped and with some very basic standards absent.- Ms Gardiner, August 2019
“The house is just beautiful, I am originally from the village and always knew the history of the house but had never been inside.”
It far exceeded my expectations. The owners, again whom I knew, live locally and responded immediately to anything we needed. We would definitely recommend the house and are even planning another stay ourselves next year.- Miss Loftus, October 2018

This was a great place to stay - loads of room for the kids to run around and the house was spotlessly clean - Only problem we had was the oven - but it didn't spoil our stay- Mr Cranney, July 2014

The owners were fantastic and very helpful. We would definitely recommend it to others and would be more than happy to stay there again.- Mrs Myall, July 2014
“Prospect Cottage was the perfect fit for our family!”
Plenty of space and amenities. We enjoyed staying there so much and especially liked the historic nature of the cottage and the beautiful town of Portlaw. The owners were so friendly and helpful! They made sure we had everything we needed and even researched our Irish surname so that we could visit the town where our family originated! It was the highlight of our trip, along with the guided tour of Curraghmore. This beautiful home of the 8th Marquis of Waterford is a gem and just around the corner from Prospect Cottage! We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have chosen this beautiful cottage and town for our holiday in Ireland. We hope to visit again!- Mr Driscoll, June 2014
“We shared this property with another family and it was ideal.”
The building is unusual, well adapted and in a gorgeous part of Ireland. The garden was safe for the children to play in. The owners are exceptionally welcoming and on hand if any help is required, which was appreciated.- Mrs Banks, May 2014
“The cottage was lovely and had real history and character.”
The couple who own it met us on arrival and could not do enough to help us settle in. The comfort of the beds was excellent and duvets were really warm. The kitchen equipment was excellent and had all we needed for a weeks self catering for 10 people. Everyone in Portlaw thought we were mad for going there on holiday, the but the village is lovely and the people really friendly! The cottage also had a secure courtyard for the children to play in freely, and the views over the river Suir from the property were wonderful. The location is great for exploring the South East Coastal drive of Waterford and also Wexford and Cork were also easily accessible for a day trip- Miss Shortland, April 2014

The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us a very warm welcome and tourist advice. The pictures do not do the property justice as it was stunning and far better than I could have wished for.- Mrs Power, August 2013
“Great house for two families to share, and really safe outside space for the children.”- Mrs Daniels, August 2013

About the location
PORTLAW, COUNTY WATERFORD
Waterford 9 miles.
A pretty town just a short drive from Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, Portlaw stands in a delightful setting where the River Suir meets the River Clodagh. The main street offers a selection of amenities, including a supermarket, butcher, florist, newsagent and traditional pubs. The town’s main attraction is Curraghmore House and Estate, the seat of the Marquis of Waterford and home to some 2,500 acres of formal gardens and woodland. The grounds are open year-round and visitors are welcome. Though occupying an inland location, Portlaw is just a short drive to a number of beaches while the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains, popular with walkers and hikers, are only slightly further a field. Portlaw is an excellent base for exploring this part of County Waterford.
