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.

The Perfect Getaway!
Clover Cabin is a very special place and we have already booked our second 'escape' for early 2020! From the moment we arrived to moment we left, we had the most wonderful break away. The cabin is beautiful; warm and cosy and well loved and cared for. It was so welcoming and lovely to cosy up by the stove in the cold December evenings. Fergal and Annette were wonderful. So friendly, relaxed - the perfect hosts! Our 7 year old daughter enjoyed the play area in the cabin grounds. I have to say, this was the most relaxing break we have had in years, despite numerous 'sun holidays' abroad. There is something very special about the cabin, and we can't wait to return!

Weekend Escape
We live close to Gowran so we weren’t sure about booking somewhere so close to home, however I’m very pleased we did. This Scandinavian cabin is exactly the escape the title claims. It’s warm, functional and frankly just beautiful. The kitchen is perfect with all appliances of high spec. There’s ample crockery and delph. Annette and Fergal were a pleasure to deal with and the extras like having that stove lighting, plenty of fire wood, home made scones, eggs and milk there for us on arrival was massively appreciated. I can’t recommend this highly enough. Pure bliss!

Flawless
This is our 4th time back to the cabin and I genuinely can't fully describe how much we love it here. Spotless, cosy, so comfortable and peaceful. Our kids are 11 and 8 and it is the perfect location for family time and a chance to wind down and have fun. They enjoyed the garden, swings & treehouse and loved that we could barbeque in the rain in the outdoor picnic area. I enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch swing in the evenings and a coffee on the balcony in the mornings....just perfect. Fergal and Annette think of everything. We had scones and fresh eggs for breakfast on our first morning, courtesy of our lovely hosts. We were here for a week this time and I'm actually heading home with no dirty laundry, as there's even a great washer and dryer in the outdoor area! A few of our favourite activities nearby included nore valley pet farm, crazy golf, dunmore caves, jerpoint glass blowing studio, kinfane waterfall, bowling and of course exploring kilkenny town itself. I'll miss falling asleep to the sound of the wind in the trees. We'll be back again for our 5th visit very soon. Thanks for everything.

Fantastic get away
Myself my husband and two young children booked a weeks holiday here. From start to finish I couldn’t recommend it enough. The booking was easy.. quick to respond and I found Fergal very helpful with any enquires. The Cabin is such a love tranquil getaway. We all loved. The scones on arrival from Annette we’re a lovely treat. The kids had such an adventure staying here. You guys have something very different and special here and it’s kept to a high standard. We had lovely BBQ evenings and lovely days out without having to travel too far. Thanks guys we will definitely be booking again.

Cozy, clean - the kids loved it!
We stayed a week in Clover Cabin and had a really great time. The cabin is very clean and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need. The kids loved the treehouse, swing set and especially the large sandpit. We had a couple of BBQ's out the back - the covered area at the back of the cabin is a great space for kids to play even if it is raining. We had a couple of day trips to Kilkenny, walked the viaduct in Borris, visited the reptile zoo in Gowran, swam in the River Barrow in Clashganny, canoed to Graiguenamanagh . . . there's a lot to do nearby. Would love to go back again, would definitely recommend!

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. ​
