Bernie was a super nice and caring host, thank you!
This cottage was a wonderful surprise, and Bernie, the owner was very accommodating.. We had a fridge full of anything we could need on our first night/morning - an Irish breakfast, milk, wine and a fire lit! - The cottage was steeped in history and a wonderful throw back to traditional Irish living - this was a very relaxing week and we were close enough to Dungarvan to access all entertainment and fabulous restaurants we needed - it was also prefect for our dogs with its big garden which is enclosed and safe. I would highly recommend this cottage and host. If its a couple's escape you are seeking - then step back in time to Carthy's cottage and enjoy every moment it provides. We got out and about every day and discovered many coves/beaches and towns within 20 miles all worth a visit - Lismore, Stradbally, Dungarvan - the trip to Dunmore East and Passage East is beautiful - the Copper Coast drive is also a wonderful way to spend the day. A most memorable week.
Beautiful traditional Irish cottage.. Lovely located not too far from Dungarvan. Quiet located for a relaxing holiday. Plenty of attractions and sight seeing not too far away.
Location Superb.. Very good host, who did that extra step to please, by giving information about things happening(i.e. farmers market) nearby.
The cottage was lovely but would recommend better quality furniture seating in .... The cottage was lovely but would recommend better quality furniture seating in living room very uncomfortable everything else was fine
It's too complicated.. If I book through Booking com, Idon't want to communicate still with another office.
You phoned me several times and when I call back you don't know why they phoned me. And I booked 5 appartements in Ireland and when you phone me why schould I know which appartement it concerns and I thought I would just communicate with Booking com and not with somebody else.
Our host Bernie was very welcoming and helpful - even with our two dogs, we talked briefly about before arrival! All information needed was provided so we did not need to ask for more support. Our host gave us a little tour around the house and the surrounding area. We hiked and did cycling tours - the Greenway from Dungarvan to Waterford is perfect for that. So was the accommodation: A beautiful and charming cottage with a big garden including stunning view. The pictures in the listing show exactly what you'll find.
We stayed in Carthy's cottage with our small dog.. We were made most welcome and the cottage was lovely and traditional but with every mod con we needed. The front enclosed courtyard and big grassy enclosed garden at the back of the house was perfect and safe for our dog. The cottage itself was much roomier than we expected. The landlady was very kind and helpful and was ever only a phonecall or text away. The area was so peaceful and we were never too far away from the places and sights we choose to visit. The Comeragh Mountains and Mahon Falls are only a 20 minute drive away and Colligan Woods less than 10 minutes away. So many lovely walks and such beautiful scenery and a lovely traditional cottage to relax in, a holiday to remember!
Our host, was a delight. She helped us in every way to make our stay interesting and comfortable; pointing out local cultural activities and sights. We would gladly stay there again.
This peaceful rural gem is a uniquely charming cottage enhanced by the charming warm welcome from the hosts. It has a very spacious and attractive walled courtyard, (which was perfectly suitable to contain our large dog) together with a large well-maintained garden which includes an outdoor dining area. We thoroughly recommend it as a haven of tranquillity, yet it was within reasonable driving distance of local attractions.
Liked the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner - she was a delightful woman, who couldn't do enough to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The situation was in a quiet, rural setting, which was just what we wanted. The cottage was full of character, and a comfortable place to stay in.
It was obviously restored with passion, great time and effort to keep its original look but with great thought put into modern living standards. The stove fire left the radiators throughout the house hot and everything required for a comfortable, stress free break away had been thought of. If you want to step back in time and escape the world, this is the spot.
Great place to stay. Lovely cottage with a big safe enclosed garden. Perfect for dogs. Handy for Dungarvan and the Tannery restaurant!
Owner was very helpful. Quite isolated so ideal for a quiet break in a beautiful countryside.
Garden was great for dogs and the views were fantastic. Lovely authentic Irish cottage.
