We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend hiking the beautiful Nire Valley. Room #1 was spacious with a lovely view over the river. Very comfortable bed and a lovely, relaxing jacuzzi bath after a long day walking. Staff are fantastic, helpful and friendly. The breakfast…wow and they offer the option of packing some up into the rucksack for lunch...

Wonderful couple of days at Hanora's Cottage - a perfect place, after a sumptuous breakfast, from which to set off for a day's walking in the nearby hills and to return to the home comforts provided by Mary and her staff, not least of which was a delicious evening meal. Thank you everyone, we'll be back!

A lovely location for a group of friends to relax and chill out after some hill-walking. Hanoras cottage is like a home away from home: welcoming, cosy and friendly. Food was great, service was efficient and pleasant at all times, Thank-you to Mary, Ina, Anne and the Team for a great weekend.

Spent just one night here and was blown away by the lovely welcome from Mary and all the lovely staff at Hanora's...

Stayed at Hanora's cottage w/end of 13 March 2015. Arrived late in evening & struggled to find the place. Once we got settled in to a lovely room, we enjoyed an excellent meal, with some wine from a reasonably priced wine list. Breakfast was to die for & after that we made a packed lunch for ourselves. Mary had organised...

We wanted somewhere to celebrate our anniversary. This was a good option for us as we were able to go hiking that morning, and then afterwards check into our accommodation.
