Very comfortable yet old feeling home, traditional cottage yet modern. Comfortable beds and plenty of living spaces, beautiful property!! Piano was a plus, and horses although with our outings and rain we didn’t make it to see them. Not a walkable property but a 10 min drive into town. Very easy to get around throughout Cork from here. David is very friendly and helpful!! Very much enjoyed chatting with him! Note: GPS took us crazy way to get there… if you use equestrian center it’s easier to navigate to using Apple maps.

We had a great time. The location is very convenient and the family room was a perfect place to gather after a long day. Puppies was a bonus for us dog lovers. David was very helpful and made wonderful suggestions as to where to visit.

Amazing place to stay. It was everything we were looking for. Authentic thatched roof, warm cozy fireplace and beautifully done. Thanks so much for your kindness. When back in Ireland we will stop for a stay.

My family and I will treasure our stay in David & Eilis’s wonderful cottage. It is furnished and decorated beautifully to allow you to feel instantly at home. David’s greeting, local guidance & care throughout our stay was truly top notch! We so enjoyed the tranquil and idyllic surroundings. There was such a sense of calm when we returned after a busy day of sightseeing. Loved seeing the horses & the Puppies visits too!Thank you for allowing us to experience your beautiful space. We look forward to returning.

Had my heart set on staying at this cottage when I decided on it in the US about a year ago and saw it on Vrbo. Kitchen worked out well with microwave dishwasher, full-size fridge and gas oven, we made dinners four nights that week we stayed. Location was convenient to Cork, COMBS and Mallow had excellent grocery stores for supplies since we stayed an entire week. We had lots of breathing space at this former equine training center and that is hard to find in Ireland. David was great host and got a fire started in the woodstove for one romantic evening for us, it was fascinating to us, that he used peat for the firewood. Thank you.

Ellis was there to greet us with a big smile and friendly conversation. The cottage was more than awesome. If I come back I will for sure stay here again.

We LOVED staying at Ivy Bridge Cottage. Eilis and David are fabulous hosts. We loved David’s stories and cannot thank him enough for setting up the fire for us. We highly recommend this property. We were sad that our 4 night stay was over so soon.

This house is a delightful surprise. Loved the ambiance and the personality of every room. David is a kick to talk with and the quiet setting was wonderful, but it was close to many sights and activities- so convenient and peaceful.
