    We stayed in Ivy House for Christmas, and we couldn’t ask for a better experience. This comfortable , spacious and well equipped house provided us with a “home from home” experience, and helped make our Christmas a special one. The house is well laid out , warm, and the log burner fire was well used! The Christmas tree and decorations made the house a lovely festive setting for our family.Everything we could possibly need was provided, and the house was spotless. The location was ideal, a few minutes drive from Ballinafad and Boyle, and we managed a few walks in the beautiful Forest Park and the Caves of Keash. Thank you to Liz and Bernard for being such gracious hosts, we look forward to a return visit!
