A group of 6 of us stayed at Primrose Cottage for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Coolbawn Quay, which is about 1.5 miles away to walk / drive. We also had other friends who rented out the neighbouring cottage. We chose the cottage given its closeness and also it offered really good value for money compared to the wedding venue itself.

We had an amazing time both at the wedding and relaxing in the houses. They were so clean and comfortable and spacious enough for the 6 adults. A huge bonus was the breakfast pack provided upon arrival, the best part was the homemade bread which was half eaten before we even made it to the church 

The two en suite rooms and third bathroom came in handy for us all and it was brilliant to have towels provided too. The free wifi was great and the board games were brought out to display the competitive side of everyone!
All in all the cottages are beautiful. They have everything required to enjoy your stay. Well worth a visit, highly recommended. We really enjoyed our stay as a group and really hope to be back.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. We are so pleased you were happy with the cottage location for the Coolbawn wedding and found the welcome pack a bonus.
Hopefully we will see some of you again for another look at our corner of Tipperary which has much to offer away from the usual tourist areas and provides a peaceful retreat from busy city life.

Kind Regards
Alison

“It was fabulous!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I loved this place. Everything was great, if you want to relax this is the place. This was our base to Galway, cliffs of Mohr, Blarney Castle, Cork and many other places. Reuben and Becky supplied us with homemade bread, twice ! It was super clean and the house was well stocked for cooking and general living. I will be back one day!

“Gorgeous cozy rural cottage in a quiet natural setting”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We loved our stay at Primrose in Tipperary! It was exactly what we needed, a nice quiet time away from the city in a convenient location for exploring Ireland's lakes, landscapes and castle ruins. The house was very warm, cozy, and welcoming (we especially loved our evenings by the fireplace.) We also had fun exploring the woods behind the house. The whole area is full of really colorful history and stooped in legend reaching back to the Neolithic age! We had a lot of fun wandering the country backroads, sampling the local pubs, and even took some kayaks out on the lake one day and went exploring some haunted castle ruins on an island! On the way back the sun began to set, the lake was still and eerily quiet, very spooky! The owner was really helpful and friendly, recommending interesting excursions, riverside walks, forest explorations and beautiful country drives. It was a perfect Ireland experience.

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the kind words. You certainly managed to explore the Tipperary countryside and do plenty of local sightseeing. There is no shortage of outdoor opportunity with the lake to explore using our own kayaks or canoes if you wish, plus local woodland and forest walks around every corner. We are also very fortunate with many high quality local pub/restaurants to choose from.
You are most welcome here anytime of course.
