Reviews for Tipperary holiday cottage in Ireland


review 4 Oct 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The cottage I was staying in was located in a wonderful part of County Tipperary. The northern tip of Tipperary beside Lough Derg. I enjoyed exploring the area in my car in the first few days and then by travelling back to the locations and walking. The meadows and trees were still lush even though it was late September and I was blessed with wonderful weather in the first few days. I particularly enjoyed the drive from Terryglass to Nenagh by driving alongside Lough Derg. The lovely villages that I passed through and how clean and tidy everything looked. Views of the lake from higher roads were spectacular.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I was given the phone number of the owner of the cottages and spoke to him before I booked to get a better feel of what I needed to bring with me. He kindly arranged to have wifi in the cottage for me when I arrived and also a box of locally grown organic fruit and vegetables which I paid for on arrival. I would recommend that other travellers contact the owner for local information beforehand for anything they might have an interest in. They have bikes so to bring a helmet with them!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes to a point. I purchased the organic vegetables and purchased other food in the shops to cook myself. Also went to local town to their cafe. I would have cycled more had I stayed longer. I wanted to be familiar with the roads first before I ventured on a bike.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I wanted a retreat where I could be by myself without interruption and this is what I got. I knew that the owner was nearby if I needed any help which was comforting. I had imagined the holiday before I left home and the holiday I got was that exact dream! Out of 10 it would be 10.
