What a place to stay!
From the time we were greeted at the door by Mary, everything was seamless.
The location. The Cottage. The food. The staff. 10/10 across the board. The room was beautiful (a junior suite) and it was SPOTLESSLY clean.
We cannot speak highly enough about Hanora’s cottage. It is perfect. We will be back!
Covid compliant . Clean room, comfortable bed, excellent food michelin star standard both dinner and breakfast, pleasant staff very attentive. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning in the near future. Special thanks to Mary for making our stay memorable.
After reading reviews for Hanoras cottage what drew us most was the welcome that guests wrote about. We booked over the phone for 4 nights b&b abd dinner. We were not advised check in was at 3.pm. We arrived at 1 30pm at the front door which was opened by Mary. There was no hello only my husband introduced who we were to be told " it's 3 o clock check in, thats what I tell them all!!! OK so we had travelled a long way and wanting to use a bathroom we had to drive back into Clonmel (had a highly recommended meal in Mulcahys).I was very anxious about returning after such an abrupt greeting 1st time. When we arrived back we had to use the back entrance to our room which I did not like. We were told "you'll take dinner at 7pm". we felt we were in school and not 2 professional people. Dinner was fine but no atmosphere whatsoever in the restaurant. I know its a very difficult time but there was just this awful feeling for us in this place.We checked out the next am. and booked into a wonderful b and b Newtown Farm in ardmore where we got a wonderful welcome from Teresa. Our opinion is that Hanoras Cotfage is over rated and as the saying goes "First impressions last ".
We stayed in Hanoras cottage for 3 nights last weeks. Everything about the place was wonderful. Food, atmosphere, rooms and the staff.
The walks were amazing and that cup of tea and cakes was a delight. We just loved the sound of the river from our bedroom
We will be back int the Autumn.
I first went there two years ago for dinner. Everything about the experience was utterly unique, personal and of exceptional quality. The three course dinner was some of the nicest food I’ve ever eaten. I’ve been back for dinner nine or ten times since. The menu includes something for everyone and the food and service continue to be outstanding.
I also went to Hanora’s to have breakfast with some friends. I knew it won Best Breakfast in Ireland and was very excited to try it out. I was not disappointed! The selection of cereals, fruit and home-made breads was like nothing I’d ever seen and I had a fry too which was absolutely beautiful.
In February I spent the night in Hanora’s Cottage. The room was incredibly spacious and luxurious with a beautiful view and the most enormous jacuzzi I’ve ever seen. I only stayed for one night but the peace, tranquillity, exceptional food and service made me feel like I’d had a week away.
There isn’t a restaurant or guesthouse in Ireland that I could recommend more wholeheartedly than Hanora’s Cottage. Mary, Eoin, Judith and Iena are the most incredible team. I look forward to many more visits!
