Went here last Saturday with friends for the afternoon tea for women's little Christmas. Was very enjoyable. Was decorated really prettily. It was very busy so there was a wonderful atmosphere. So much delicious food, excellent value.

So glad that you enjoyed the Little Women's Afternoon Tea Party. This was the first time that we did this - we thought it would be a relaxing way to catch up with friends after Christmas before everyone had to part again. It seems to have been a success - people liked the food and the music. We hope to...

We got married here on New Years Eve. It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The venue is unique, quaint & quirky. It is very well suited for more intimate weddings especailly if many of your guests will stay over. You have free reign to decorate as you like to add personal touches. The staff were outstanding. Couldnt be...

Quaint and carefully decorated accommodation only a short stumble from the reception hall. The food was incredible! Excellent at any restaurant, but simply stellar given this was a banqueting event. Breakfast was equally brilliant. Nestled deep in the valleys of rural Cork, I was wowed!

We were a large group and stayed at the cottages for 5 nights. This place has a great location if you want to be away from the daily hustle and bustle, and is located in a quiet countryside. During this period, we attended the wedding reception of a friend and the arrangements were great! The food was amazing, and the...

My husband and I attended a wedding in Barnabrow 3 weeks ago, and what a day we had. We were greeted by staff without even having to leave our car, we were directed to out room, we could park close by, great when lugging suits etc. Drinks reception was lovely, got time to catch our breath after a morning of...

My wife and I got married here recently. I have to say from our point of view the whole experience was great. The staff - Sabine, Anna and Heather – were exceptionally helpful and accommodating on the day. The majority of the guests raved about the food, and I can honestly say that it was one of best meals I...

I attended a wedding here about two weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. The surroundings are stunning, the rooms are pretty, bright and clean. The wedding meal was absolutely beautiful and service was flawless. What struck me most was the staff here. They really do go above and beyond for the guests. Personally, I feel that staff...

Firstly let me start my review by saying this is a beautiful venue for a wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed the wedding itself -food was great, and 99% of the staff members were lovely and attentive. The "welcome girls" when you drive up to the cottages need more training and seemed very unsure of their role. Asking me if they...

My brothers wedding notwithstanding, this is a location of particular class and style. The effortless old grand farmhouses and buildings of centuries ago restored and marketed as a wedding location of work class proportions. Must mention is Sabina, the liaison for weddings around information and general directions to the best man and family throughout the day. This girl is excellent...
