We hebben van onze vakantie genoten, vooral het vissen in de naast gelegen Barrow. Van de 11 dagen hadden we 10 dagen prachtig weer. De eigenaren zijn erg aardig en attent. We waren zelfs uitgenodigd op de 1e comunie van 1 van hun dochters, erg gezellig. De cottages is van alle gemakken voorzien, zoals een afwasmachine, wasmachine en droger. Het was alleen jammer dat de beloofde boot kort daarvoor was gestolen. Als u echt eens wilt uitrusten en genieten en u houdt van vissen, dan is dit een aanrader. Ook de omgeving was erg mooi. Wij wensen Claudia en James nog veel succes en nog bedankt voor de gastvrijheid.

Nous avons passé de très agréable vacances dans la maison de la pompe. La maison est très agréable et la décoration est vraiment en harmonie avec les lieux. La maison est idéalement située entre la ville et la campagne. Les prestations proposées dans l'annonce sont vraiment celles que nous avons trouvé sur place. Et c'est avec plaisir que nous retournerons passer d'autres vacances. Nous sommes très satisfait de notre séjour et merci encore à Claudia, James et leur enfants pour leur accueil.

James et Claudia sont des hôtes très accueillants. La Pump House est très bien aménagée et confortable. Nous y avons passé une semaine à Pâques 2016 en famille et nous en gardons un très bon souvenir. Nous l'avons déjà recommandé à nos proches. Un petit plus pour les enfants lors de notre séjour : deux agneaux en semi-liberté qui ne demandent qu'à être chouchoutés.

Hemos tenido una estancia estupenda. Tanto la casa como la finca en la que está situada es preciosa y además cuenta con unos anfitriones encantadores. El pueblo está muy cerca y cuenta con todas las comodidades (varios supermercados, restaurantes, pubs). Muy recomendable si quieres descansar y estar en contacto con la naturaleza.

We enjoyed 100% of our time at the cottage, which is located at a former manor farm on an estate near to river Barrow in Athy, county Kildare. The cottage is perfect in all perspectives: complete, cozy, modernly equipped furniture, king-size bed with good mattresses, beautiful rural kitchen and lots of privacy. The estate Barrowford is reached via a driveway surrounded by monumental trees. At the former farm, there are lots of friendly animals: a donkey, 3 lovely dogs, 3 sheep, 3 horses and many chickens. The quiet cottage is the perfect starting point for trips to Kildare (stud and Japanese Garden) and the medieval city of Kilkenny. Even Dublin can be easily visited via the motorway. It is the ideal place for the stressed townsman to recover and reload. The owners are Claudia and James, who are very hospitable, willing to help and gave us suggestions for nice trips. We felt welcome from the first moment, happily surprised by the nice welcome package including wine, the flowers in the bedroom etc.! This cottage is absolute recommendable for a long weekend, which will turn out to be too short. Better to spend a week at the fantastic cottage at Barrowford, we are sure you will enjoy it, just like we did in September 2021!

I stayed for 4 weeks in February as I was working nearby. The property is very cosy and in a quiet location. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable and I would happily stay there again.

The cottage was a great location for us. The bed was so comfortable, and the wood burner very cosy. Claudia and James were lovely hosts. The only downside was the noise of the water pump every time the toilet flushed or the shower/ taps were in use. I would stay again though
