My husband and I wanted a quiet, central location to stay as a home base for our trips to Clonmel, Cahir, Cashel, Lismore, Dungarvan, as well as exploring the walking trails and mountains all around.. "Ryan's Loft was a great place for what we needed! It was very peaceful; the town is very small but lively and pretty. The owners were wonderful and we even became friends shortly into our 9 night stay! Expectations were exceeded in MANY ways. We WILL certainly be back. The cottage/loft itself is rustic and very homey and comfy. It's absolutely perfect for a simple getaway in the country with all the country charm and character! There are lots of travel books in a basket left by other travelers, and there are all sorts of spices, tea, coffee, sugar, milk and butter and other cooking basics ready for use. Our holiday was very memorable, and a lot of that was because of our fantastic hosts!
