What a lovely place, as soon as you drive through the automated gates you feel you are in your own little world! We stayed at Little Orchard Cottage, very picturesque, my 7 year old compared it to' Snow White and the seven dwarves house" We were welcomed by Mel, she made us a cup of tea and gave lots of tips where to visit with our two seven year old boy's, very helpful. The scones and jam provided were very tasty. The owners Liz and Roger, both very welcoming, Liz gave my son Dan, some great tips with his drawing/art. The cottage is very homely and comfortable a great place to return to after a day out sightseeing or visiting family. Would recommend Tayto Park if you have kids, a great day out. Eating out,we had 2 very tasty meals at the ' Lime Kiln' in nearby Julianstown. The children's play area at The Cottages was great, our two boy's used it every day, the play house had lot's to keep them amused. The lovely wide beach at the bottom of the garden was fantastic, had a few lovely walks there! Have to say the beds very comfortable, so a good nights sleep had by all, also a cosy reading area in the cottage with plenty of books there to choose from. A fantastic 10 day's there, were reluctant to leave, but now we have found it hope to return again in the future, and would highly recommend to anyone holidaying in Ireland. Many thanks, Therese, Henry, Dan, Joe Quayle IOM

Rose cottage was just right for our short break here - I think we were lucky with the weather and I would have loved to have seen the horses racing along the strand which was taking place the day after we left. Perfect location on the beach with own entrance directly onto the beach (although we found it unusual to see cars driving up and down the beach but it is a very wide beach so plenty of room!) - you don't feel overlooked by anyone else and the cottage provided everything you needed. Good transport service, train and bus. Convenient for Dublin. We do like to eat out on holiday and the only thing I would say is I'm not sure that their is enough variation/choice locally (ie within reasonable walking distance) however the supermarkets are and provide what you need if you self cater. We had a great welcome and everyone is very friendly and helpful.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay in Honeymoon Cottage. Liz Roger Mel and all their staff made us wonderfully welcome with scones and tea. The cottage was amazing and the gardens are stunning. There is a lot of love care and attention to detail in The cottages and the gardens and I could not have wished for a more beautiful place to surprise my husband for his 50th. I can't wait to bring my family and return and recommend these cottages. Thank you Liz and Roger for sharing a "little piece of heaven" in Ireland with us. Sue and Shaun Bashall xx
