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.

A lovely old style Irish cottage, set in a beautiful scenic valley in Waterford. We were met by the lady who owns the house at the crossroads about a mile from the cottage to guide us there, she had already been at the cottage and had the fire lighting and the ingredients for the welcome Irish breakfast ready which was very thoughtful. We had chosen this pet friendly cottage as we had our 2 Vizslas with us. The house has plenty of room around outside also with a spacious yard at the front and a large sized garden at the back. The location is quiet secluded and on its own, it is enclosed and gated which was great as the dogs were safe, knew the boundary and relaxed. The cottage was clean neat and tidy, it gave an idea of what life was like in rural Ireland in times past but except of course now with all mod cons. The landlady was very helpful in giving us guidanace on the property and advice on the area when we arrived, and during our time there she messaged at times to see if all was O.K. if she could do anything for us or if we were in need of anything. This cottage is ideal if planning to tour some of Waterford, as its central to many attractions. We were very fortunate to have a dry sunny week and we went on many long beautiful dog walks in the area. A folder in the cottage outlined many very good walks throughout the county. We were all well recharged after a very enjoyable week at Carthy’s Cottage and look forward to visiting again.

Great place to stay. Lovely cottage with a big safe enclosed garden. Perfect for dogs. Handy for Dungarvan and the Tannery restaurant!
