Spent a wonderful week here, end of August/early September, 2010. A 5 Star cottage and a 5 Star bathroom!
Beautifully maintained cottage and gardens in a unique location by the River Blackwater.
Had no problem with the access lane it is well maintained, no potholes keep in a low gear and enjoy the views!
Great area for canoeing and boating - I used the slipway at nearby Villierstown Quay (10 mins drive) for good access to the river.
Cottage is equipped as a home, rather than a holiday let. Very cosy old character maintained, but with all mod cons.
Great place for wildlife: kingfishers, herons, otters.
Interesting area for touring too- beaches, mountains and historic towns all in easy reach.
The friendly owners live just behind the cottage but the cottage itself is very private.
Just loved it here! Highly recommended.
We’ve just returned home from our second visit to Jack’s cottage. Without a doubt this is the perfect hideaway for a stress free break. From the minute you step into this charming cottage, you will fell relaxed it’s hard not to in such peaceful surroundings. When you open the half door it is obvious the care and attention that the owners Bridie and Ben have poured into the restoration of this 17th century cottage. It is not so much a holiday cottage but a “home from home”. The cottage has every modern convenience you could want and has wonderful touches the bathroom is fabulous!!!
We found lots of great beaches and nice towns nearby. Our children (age four and two) had a wonderful time here enjoying the surrounding area and making new memories and have not stopped talking about it since we returned home. We’ll definitely be back and look forward to making new memories of Jack’s cottage in the years to come.
All in all Jack’s cottage is the perfect getaway for a relaxing, stress free break.
25th Aug - 1st Sept 2007What a wonderful cottage! The peace and quiet was a far cry from our normal city life and we all felt at home here. Visited Waterford Crystal, Blarney Castle, Lismore Castle and Ballysaggartmore Towers. Had a gorgeous meal at the Mill restaurant in Dungarvan and explored the town. I think this will be the first of many visits to Ireland, so we may well return to this beautiflu little hidey hole.Many thanks fromCorinne and Ben FisherKiristie JohnsonJo HealExeter, Devon, UK
7 October 2007What an amazing, awe-inspiring, peaceful place on earth. We had an incredible weekend of hiking, canoning, nature watching and listening and simply relaxing. There is no question in our minds that we will be back...and not in the too distant future. Thank you so much for everything.Megan and Jack HoganKilkenny, Ireland
14 Nov to 5 Dec 2007What a paradise, so peaceful, quiet and love the view over the reeds to the river. I came here stressed and go away feeling much better. Bridie, Ben and family your cottage, surrounds and hospitality are priceless. Thank you.Jody and Bruce Bradfield New Zealand
