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.

Excellent stay-the ultimate family retreat
We spent the weekend in the beautiful Clover Cabin with our 1.5yr old son. We had such a lovely break and the property couldn't have been more perfect. Lots of space and close to Kilkenny too. A warm welcome from Fergal who was the ultimate host, close enough to help and offer advice on the area but also let us to our own devices. Cabin has everything you need for a comfortable stay and we can't wait to return again soon. Thank you Fergal and Annette

Fabulous hidden gem
This is our third time to stay at the cabin with our family. Each experience has been at least as enjoyable as the last one. You are always made to feel so welcome on your arrival. You are greeted with homemade scones and fresh free range eggs from on site. It's a wonderful place to take a family. Our kids love coming to the cabin. There is plenty of space for them to play and relax. The location of the cabin is so close to the motorway. Dublin is roughly an hour away and Waterford is around 40 mins away. Places like Tayto Park are very accessible as a result. Almost forgetting the fact that the beautiful city of Kilkenny is no more than 10 minutes away. You could spend days there exploring the wonderful sights and the many great places to eat. We've only had positive experiences at avd through staying in the cabin. This won't be our last trip there!!

Fab cabin!
We recently stayed in ‘Clover Cabin’ and I couldn’t fault it! It’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a break away. The cabin itself is so comfortable, warm and cosy. The hosts Fergal and Annette are lovely and couldn’t do enough for us during our stay. The location is excellent....a 15 min drive from the bustling city of Kilkenny which is always a hive of activity and has plenty to see and do! We loved our stay and hope to visit again soon!

Outstanding
Myself, my husband and 3 children aged 5, 16 months and 3 months recently stayed at clover cabin. It was everything I'd hoped for and more. Fergal and Annette had thought of everything for us even including baby gates! The freshly baked scones on arrival was a lovely touch and fergal was most helpful on arrival. I cant fault our stay and my only complaint is that it simply was not long enough!! We can't wait to come back already! Thanks guys!

About the neighbourhood
We’re just a ten-minute drive from Kilkenny city’s many attractions, and a short skip to Gowran Park Race and Golf Course. It's also a great base for exploring Tipperary, Wexford, and Waterford. If you’re bringing the family, there’s loads for your little ones to do at the cabin itself – sandpits, a tree house and play area. There are two covered deck areas, meaning you’re good to go even if the Irish rain decides to fall. The garden is planted with native trees and features a pond, encouraging lots of flora and fauna to the area. We’re located just 5km from the M9 linking Dublin to Waterford. Gowran is a stop on the main Dublin to Waterford bus route, with buses running 10 times or more a day. ​
