“The location was perfect, lovely view of mountains, and lovely farm. Cahir, a gorgeous little town, which is untouched by tourism is only a few minutes drive away, with a choice of supermarkets, restaurants, bars and takeaways. The Cottage has three double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with bath) a well equipped kitchendinerlounge, and a comfortable lounge with great views. The cottage was finished to a five star standard, everything you may need is available, however if there is something you need the owners Paul and Evelyn are very helpful. There is a washer and dryer in a separate utility room if needed. We were originally going to stay for one week, but we loved it so much we had one night staying in Kerry, and then came back to John's Dairy (the sister cottage) for the rest of our two week holiday. We all fell in love with Boolakennedy and the surrounding area. The cottages are so well located that you can visit south coast and almost everywhere in Southern Ireland on a day out. We will definitely be back.”

“Just home from spending a few days here with family and what can I say. This cottage is absolutely perfect for the relaxed getaway with everything you need minutes away. Stunning location with the most beautiful beach minutes away, charmingly quaint Irish cottage with just enough modernicity to give you a stress free holiday from the fully equipped kitchen to the stunning stone walls right up to the comfiest bed I've slept in in a holiday rental. Absolutely just what I needed to get away from the strains of high stress work life! Can't wait to book it for myself for next summer.”
