Lovely little cottage in the middle of the country. Have everything we needed in the house. The host met us on first day and made sure we have everything we needed. My girls loved greeting the donkeys across the house. Highly recommended and would book again

Stayed at Franks cottage for the weekend and this place has such character. It is amazing! I would buy this property within a heartbeat. From the "Welcoming committee" (donkeys) to the cozy turf fire to the hostess Riona. This lady was super accommodating had no issues at all on our requests and was nothing but smiles. If you want quiet, this is the place. The kitchen was fully equipped, bathroom clean as well as the bedsheets. I loved the stable styled kitchen door leading into the sitting room. It gives a great authentic countryside feel to the cottage. The best part of it all was sitting on the couch with a glass of Merlot and my book to read in peace by the turf lit stove. If you want to get away for a weekend and relax after a stressful Christmas with covid and all. Look no further. Riona is amazing. Franks Cottage is amazing Will be back soon!!!

Franks cottage is a lovely wee place. It is set in the quiet setting of Cloonlumney, the cottage is very well stocked and you should want for nothing. Riona, is excellent to deal with and communication was spot on. For this price the cottage is great value for money. Pet friendly and the Donkey's gave us a fantastic welcome.

Spent a lovely weekend in Franks Cottage. Facilities were excellent and the cottage was spacious & cosy. Plenty of room outside to relax in the garden. Lots of fun things to do close by. Would highly recommend!

Myself and my wife stayed here. It was absolutely fantastic. Very clean, super fast wifi, very warm and cosy. The perfect weekend to get away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. It was self check-in which was very hand. Riona was a delight and I'm so grateful we were allowed to bring our little dog with us. Great hiking around and we went horse riding 20 minutes away. Will definitely be back.
