We wanted a cute little cottage in the centre of the RI, away from the city, to use as our hub to explore, and that is exactly what we got. The Chestnut Cottage is cute, cozy, quirky, quiet and comfortable and right in heart of the country. Marian and John are wonderful hosts and Buddy will welcome you with his charming "banter" when you pull in the driveway. The cottage has all the basics you need and it is only a few minutes to town to pick up anything else you might require (groceries, etc). There are little shops, pubs, cafe's and restaurants within a short drive and the river Shannon is right at your doorstep too. The wifi was spotty but Marian went out of her way (replaced the repeater/booster) to make sure we could stay connected with those we left at home in Canada. We had a great time staying here. Thank you making our stay a happy memory.
