We were looking for a base for exploring and walking in the Glen of Aherlow and the Galtee Mountains. Reads was ideal - we achieved most of what we wanted to do in a week of generally good weather, without too much driving. The house was well furnished and comfortable, outstandingly clean, very well-equipped and everything worked. The lovely garden and view of the mountains from the deck were a bonus. Liz and Karl and family were the perfect hosts - welcoming, friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive.
Stayed here with my children, it’s a beautiful cottage , was so comfortable and cosy, with a fabulous view of the mountains and a lovely garden for the children to run around. We had a lovely quiet and peaceful weekend. The place was spotless, it had everything we needed. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Look forward to returning x
This is a beautiful house. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Amazing views and beautiful gardens. Liz and Karl very welcoming and helpful.
Close to a lovely village with butchers, grocers, pubs etc. Situated at the foot of the Galtee mountains. Perfect place to get away for a relaxing time.
Set in a small village with a couple of shops and pubs. Used the shops a couple of times but didn't go the the pubs as if we weren't having dinner with family who live nearby we catered for ourselves at the cottage as all the facilities (and more!) were provided. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and warm. Liz and Karl were helpful without being intrusive.
I am a single woman who wanted to spend a week writing and unwinding in the Aherlow Valley. I couldn't have found a better place. The house is clean and shiny. The views of the Galtee Mountains from the back porch were breathtaking when the weather behaved. Since it was November I expected the cold rain. I was able to take some nice walks. The small town of Galbally had a couple of small Grocers so I could get what I needed to cook dinner in the kitchen that had everything I needed. The hosts Karl and Liz were friendly and helpful. I had a great time.
