A lovely, peaceful place to stay. Good, clean accommodation with TV and cooking utilities. Our cottage was quite spacious which was great as we had dogs with us. The walled garden was a huge bonus as the dogs could go out safely. There are nice walks taking you either by the river or up the hills. The owners were very friendly and most helpful but left you to your own devises. The cottages are in easy driving reach of some of the towns. We enjoyed our stay here.
We love the tranquillity of these cottages. Really well situated, you walk out of the door and decide whether to turn left at the gates for the hill walks or right to the river. Go up the mountain on a choice of well signed loop walks, or pick the level and not at all soggy river walk. Half an acre of walled garden means you can take a dog and find him again once he,s explored the rabbity bottom of the garden. A great base , we finally discovered Doneraile Park this trip and ,again with dogs in mind, Inch strand is a golden beach with dunes behind within day tripping distance. It's impossible to praise Gerry and Maura enough for their helpfulness and local knowledge yet after they welcome you in they won't be hovering, so you can enjoy your cottage in peace. We never did get the wi-fi going but didnt miss it, and don't expect open plan luxury cottages but very clean and charming ones.…
Just spent a very enjoyable week [1st-8th July] at Daragh Cottages.They are traditional in style but have all modern day comforts.There is T.V. and WiFi,fully equipped kitchen,and plenty of cooking utensils and cutlery etc.Bedrooms and bathroom are of excellent standard.The cottages are situated in a very beautiful setting in the grounds of the owners home.Although being in heart of beautiful countryside it is but a short car ride to nearest town.Gerry,the owner,is happy to provide information on places to visit.
It was clean, everything you needed within the cottage. The garden was lovely. Within easy reach of lots of places to visit and explore. Very friendly and helpful owners who are able to tell a good tale!
We can only echo previous comments. A beautiful, peaceful spot with small but clean and comfortable cottage. Easily reached in 1 hour from Cork airport. Probably more of an ideal spot for walkers and bikers . We had to drive long distances to shops and restaurants but planned accordingly. The Clongibbon Hotel in Mitchelstown was welcoming and provided a great breakfast! Roads well signposted and everyone friendly and helpful. A very good value cottage.
