Wonderful little cottage
This property is located 20-30 minutes outside of Kilkenny and close to the lovely village of Kilsheelan, and a short drive from Clonmel. Perfectly situated to visit Kilkenny and Waterford. The house is an old farmhouse renovated with modern touches, it was perfect for what we needed. Beautiful bathroom, a small kitchen area for quick meals, and one of the best beds we have ever slept on! It was wonderful.
Sacha is a perfect host, she welcomed us and checked in to give recommendations and make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would happily stay here on future trips and highly recommend it.
We had a lovely time at the cottage and can’t wait to return. The location couldn’t be better for us and we appreciated the gracious and thoughtful amenities. our dogs had a great time playing in the enclosed court yard.
Look forward to seeing you again in due course :-)
Quite get away
First time in the area and it did not disappoint.
Good place to stay to explore south east Ireland. Sacha was very welcoming and nothing seemed to much trouble.
Wonderful guests, a delight to have to stay. The cottage was left spotless. Excellent communication from the start. I would be quite happy to have Hazel and Martin back to stay in the future :-)
Free standing single storey stone building set near the owners 2 storey house Car necessary and suits 2 people only. Grit , breakfast cereal and delicious home baked seed loaf and butter provided by owner but otherwise provide own food. No microwave but no problem as all other cooking facilities are great. Has combined washing machine/ drier Bed very comfortable with excellent sheets and towels Only problem is WiFi is a bit iffy and to work probably needs one to access nearer to the owners house rather than in the cottage (as the owner told us when we arrived)
Owner was very welcoming and available to talk to if needed. As Storm Ali was threatening our next destination the owner offered that we could stay the next day for free if we felt uncomfortable in driving on. We really appreciated her concern and as this was our first home stay in Ireland, it created a very good benchmark.
We would certainly be happy to recommend Clonmel to our friends.
Thank you for being such wonderful guests, hope that all is well back at home. :-)
One of the best VRBOs at which we've stayed
After renting VRBOs in Canada, England, France, Italy, Scotland, Switzerland, USA and now Ireland, we can say that the Garden Grove Cottage in Clonmel, Ireland was really one of the best VRBOs at which we've stayed. Owners Sacha and John were consummate hosts, the apartment was immaculate, beautifully appointed, everything was exactly as described, and we arrived to coffee, eggs, bread, and milk already laid on for us. I suppose the TV worked - we never turned it on. Lots of books in the Cottage, including fun antiquarian books. When was the last time YOU read Gray's Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard in a fun 19th century binding? "...far from the madding crowd..." And how apropos given that mere minutes from the house were 10th century intact (!) Celtic crosses we visited in a country graveyard. Their dogs, Humboldt and Artemis, could not have been more friendly. The house is on a quiet country road, and we were lulled to sleep nightly by the quiet bleating of sheep the next field over. It was great getting to know Sacha and John who have led far more interesting lives than anyone else we've ever met, and hearing about their travels and exploits was a real eye opener. They are a wealth of information and pointed us in the direction of sights unknown to the tourist maps. Leaving this wonderful VRBO was quite difficult - it felt like we were leaving family. And this, after having been there for only four days. We should have stayed a week. Go here. You won't regret it. David and Kathy
Having guests is a wonderful experience and finding interesting quirky items to leave in the cottage to make the stay more memorable and enjoyable is fun.
