This place blew. us. AWAY!
Myself, my husband, our two toddlers and my mother came for a 2-day stay and we still talk about it. Fergal met us with freshly-baked scones that we wolfed down before he'd gotten down the front steps and the place was like something out of our dreams! The play area for the kids was my daughter's first port of call and she wept when we told her we were going home. It's all very close to the city, a lovely pub that does GREAT food, the Reptile Zoo and a little town with an off-licence, shop and takeaway.
We had beautiful weather and made the most of it, but I know we could have completely enjoyed this stay rain, hail or shine!
Already planning our return!
We stayed 2- nights at clover cabin ,they were 2-wonderful nights . The cabin is just beautiful in an idyllic tranquil setting just outside Gowran. When we arrived at the house we met Feargal who was the perfect host and informed us that there was freshly made scones and free range eggs awaiting us in the kitchen . The log cabin is just beautiful and spacious with the perfect stove which we had to light just to see it in action. The cabin itself is only around 15 minutes Kilkenny and roughly the same from Castlecomer . There's a mini playground outside the cabin which is ideal for small children also as you come into the house there's a pond and a small little beach . We loved our stay here and are planning our next one before the year is out . Big thanks to Feargal and Anette the perfect hosts .
Our little family of four had a blast at this secluded cabin. It was perfect!
We arrived and Fergal had a fire on for us, with milk in the fridge, and a baby cot upstairs for our two year old. There was even a boaster seat all ready to go at the kitchen table! Perfect! We felt right at home from the very start.
The cabin is great, it has everything you need, shower upstairs, half bath down, and even a summer camp style bathroom out back! So cool! It was nice to have a washer and dryer, and a dishwasher, not exactly "roughing it", but it's vacation right? Gowran is a cute little town, we got Chinese (I know it seems odd) from Regen in town, and it was delicious! Put the leftovers in the full sized fridge (so nice), and went outside to play in the sandbox, or in the tree fort, or on the swings! The kids loved all of the toys and they played ball in the beautiful yard all day! What a retreat!
Thank you Fergal for coming over in the middle of the night when we texted that our two year old was sick and we didn't have a thermometer to check his temperature. We really appropriate you stopping by with one, and the medicine too!
Book it if you can! I'm sure it's full most of the time.
We have just spent 3 nights in Clover Cabin and it was magnificent!!!! The cabin is kept immaculate and has everything you could possibly need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Outside is a pure paradise for children from swings, slides, treehouse, sandpits and plenty of room to run around safely. The cabin is in a great location, being only a 2 minute drive from the local village and 10 mins from Kilkenny city. We met Fergal when we checked in and he's a pleasure to deal with and welcomed us with fresh scones out of the oven and free range eggs for breakfast.
I really couldn't recommend this place enough.....we will definitely be back again for a relaxing break!
I was really surprised with how beautiful Clover Cabin Escape really is,the about of space and peace of quiet around there. It really is luxurious. The owner Fergal was really nice and helpful, Fergal went out of his way to make it feel like a home from home. I would highly recommend for families or even a couple.
