Dungarvan, County Waterford
Situated just 3 miles from the lovely seaside town of Dungarvan in the south east coast of Ireland. The property is cosy and is ideal for a getaway. It is just 300 yards from the beach, perfect for swimming or surfing and also for fishing. If you feel energetic enough you can walk or cycle into Dungarvan town on the cycling / walking paths only 200 yards from the cottage. The Deise Greenway is a must. Travel through tunnels and over viaducts at your leisure or on bikes. The Greenway goes the whole way from Dungarvan to Waterford with breath taking views.
Dungarvan is a wonderful touring base for the sunny southeast with Cork only 1 hour away and Waterford 1/2 hour. It has a variety of outdoor activities to choose from - golf, tennis, fishing, wind surfing, cinema and children's playgrounds.
There are 3 golf courses locally. Gold Coa...

Had a fantastic time back home for the Christmas period largely due to how beautiful and relaxing our stay was in the cottage. Cannot thank Marie and Tony enough for allowing us to stay over a period which is usually a closed season for them. The cottage feels like a home away from home. If anyone is considering a holiday...

Gorgeously situated cottage with all the amenities. The walk to Clonea beach was beautiful and much frequented by us, a short drive to the town of Dungarvan where there is a fine selection of shops and eateries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found Marie to be very friendly and welcoming, the scones and tea available on arrival were delicious....

Management response:

Many thanks for your wonderful response. You were super guests. We really appreciated the leaving condition of the cottage. We also enjoy the cottage situation, so relaxing and peaceful. Regards. Tony and Marie
