“Wow”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I cannot put into enough words how beautiful and stunning our stay was in Clover Cabin! From the moment we drove up the drive way our smiles stayed until the minute we had to leave! Fergal and his wonderful family have perfected this holiday home to a tee! The scones from mammy on arrival are a wonderful touch and from then on our stay was something precious! My sister and her kids joined us that evening! We'd wanted to spend some quality time with them and this was the perfect weekend we had hoped for! With so many things to do in the surrounding areas, this cabin is a must do for anybody! This is a special place, being able to relax and chill while the kids are out in the beautiful surrounding was such a pleasure, whether it be sitting on the swing in the porch or out the back in the BBQ area! The cleanliness is of the highest standard, the whole experience is a credit to Fergal and his family!We are looking forward to making this an annual trip!

Fab stay with the hubbie and our smallies. Love getting away and are always looking for something a little unique. Loved it here and hope to stay again at winter/xmas, it would be unreal magical with snow. On arrival we were greeted with homemade scones, butter, jam, milk and apple juice. Salt, pepper, cooking oil, sugar, tea and coffee are all supplied in the fully equipped kitchen which has a wood breakfast bar area then dining table and chairs. A corner couch is off this with a fab stove (timber, firelighters and matches are supplied), then a tv with a number of channels and a dvd player. There is a small toilet downstairs and a double bedroom. There is a balcony out the front with a swing and rocking chair. Blankets are everywhere to make things even cosier when the stove is lit at night and to settle in for a couple of drinks when the kids are in bed. Upstairs then there is a double bedroom with balcony which has seating and a twin kids bedroom leading into a bathroom with bath and electric shower. All bedding, towels, 2 kids hooded towels and toilet paper are supplied.The hubbie cooked fry ups each morning but we ate out for lunch and dinner. Would recommend Hotel Kilkenny, Langtons, Primo (which is an Italian with a play area-great idea) and Marios take away.Noah (4) was in his element with the peddle tractor with trailer, motorbike, swing and basketball hoop in the back area. The back area was covered with tile flooring and also had outside toilets, laundry facilities, bbq and a table and chairs . Then a sandpit, treehouse, swing set, tyre swing all at the front with more sand out near the entrance-buckets and spades provided! He was also delighted to find some toys inside and board games. For Oran (6 months) his cot, highchair and some baby toys were provided. Plenty to do in the area-all of which are very near by. In Gowran (couple minutes drive) we went to a reptile zoo complete with playarea and small cafe, would highly recommend it here-Noah rubbed lizards and tortoises and we were lucky enough to be there on alligator feeding day so got to see the two of them being fed 3 white rats each! Also went horseracing in Gowran, which was rough enough and didn’t go so well on our pockets!!Nore Valley Park (10 minute drive) is a compact enough open farm again with playarea, really enjoyed that too. Noah got to feed lambs and hold a rabbit and chicks. Also went swimming, shopping and facial for mammy, bowling and to Kilkenny castle then in Kilkenny city (5 minute drive). Only fault is that we didn’t stay longer!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed March 28, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Clover Cabin can be summed up in one simple word AMAZING! A family friendly property with plenty to do outside for the kids. Booked Clover Cabin for family members that were visiting us in Gowran and each and every person we're delighted with their stay Fergal & Annette went above & beyond to accommodate us. My nephew even asked his mom if they could buy it to live there forever.... Will be booking again 100%

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 2 nights in Clover Cabin we both fell in love with the place! Fabulous log cabin, spotless clean, cozy and warm thanks to the wood burning stove, everything you need is supplied. We didnt want to leave! Fresh homemade scones and local apple juice on arrival was a lovely touch. We will be returning many more times iam sure.

“A great place to relax!”
Reviewed March 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed at Clover Cabin for the weekend - which wasn't long enough! The cabin was fantastic. It had everything that we needed and the hot scones on our arrival were very much appreciated.
We did a bit of sightseeing during the day and relaxed in front of the log fire in the evenings. It was heaven! It's a great place to relax and unwind!
We definitely will be back.
Thanks to Fergal and Annette

“A great getaway close to Dublin”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Clover cabin is a great place to stay, a little over 1hr from Dublin, 15mins from Kilkenny city.
It's a very cosy wood cabin, with 2 double bedrooms and 1 kids room with two beds.
The hosts were good at emailing back & forward before our stay and we sent them a text message when en route with our ETA and they were there to meet us when we got there, with freshly baked scones!
The fire was burning when we got there and ample firewood was provided, enough to last our entire stay.
The house is well equipped, washing machine, dishwasher and the kitchen is a good size.
TV (with cable) & Wifi are included in the price.
If you want to getaway from Dublin, or want to base yourself close to Kilkenny, this is a very relaxing chilled cosy cabin.
Note: you will need a car to get there and explore the area.
We'd highly recommend and intend to go back.
