Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely little cottage. Great location for exploring the Irish Midlands. Chris was a great host. Very helpful.

We absolutely loved Kinnitty. This town is the central location for touring Ireland. Our host Christina was marvelous and we only regret missing her play at the local pub as we were away that night. Her home is totally self sufficient and she was a superb host. We loved getting to know Kinnitty and the area. If you are able to hike and enjoy exploring this is an ideal base. The local folks we met in the pub are now our forever friends. We cannot rate this stay any higher A+++. Thanks Christina and thank you Kinnitty. We will be back!

Exceptional holiday home, a real gem in the hart of Ireland. Beautiful holiday cottage, spotlessly clean with every amenity provided. Decor in keeping with traditional cottage with some beautiful personal touches by the host. Cottage is located within walking distances of all local amenities from pubs, cafe, church and many tourist attractions. Beautiful walks, great cycling routes and brilliant mountain bike tracks for all levels of ability. Ideal location for family holiday as all will be catered for, and within driving distance of Historic Birr town with a wide variety of tourist attractions. Our host Chris was a true lady, very welcoming and very informative about locality and all the activities available. Highly recommend as a place to stay in Kinnitty.

Had a great stay here in this lovely cosy cottage. It had everything we needed and was very comfy. Chris met us on arrival at the agreed time and filled us in on all the things to see and do in the area. We enjoyed our walks in the Slieve Bloom Mountains and some great day trips to nearby attractions. The cottage is in a great location in the very pretty village of Kinnity which is a very welcoming place with some nice places to eat and drink. Thanks again Chris for everything

Cottage was clean and tidy upon arrival. Check in was smooth and communication with Chris was great! We arrived after Christmas and we were welcomed by Chris and served by a nice cake! Considering the time of year, cottage was nice and warm apart from a little drafty window in one of the rooms. WiFi is now available in the cottage and it works pretty well. Cottage is within walking distance to Kinnity village making it handy to buy your essential groceries from the local shop. Thanks for your hospitality Chris!

Great stay, Chris was very responsive when needed. The shower had an issue and she offered her place and made a call immediately (shower issue not her fault). Wed. night there is music at the bar, very welcoming and you will not get that everywhere in Ireland. The cottage had everything we needed, this may be an American thing but toilet paper etc you will need to provide which is fine. Internet is at her bed and breakfast next door I did not catch that initially but again not a huge deal as I have a hot spot. Overall a great stay and the cottage was clean, did notice a spot on the quilt in the bedroom off the living room but felt the house was clean so it was not a huge issue. Would recommend her place to anyone traveling to Ireland for the first time, Kinnitty is a great place and centrally located. We were able to get to a lot of our destinations within 2-3 hours easy.
