“Home from home”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I travelled with my elderly father and required accommodation that met his physical needs, allowed us to be independent and able to visit family and friends in the area. Mount Brandon Cottages met our needs on all counts. This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else when visiting Carlow. From the warm welcome to the facilities we could not have asked for more. Clean, reasonably priced, and in a fantastic location - what more can you ask for? Thank you so much Andrea. Hope to see you again soon.

“Comfortable and charming accommodation by the Barrow”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A most enjoyable and well catered for place to stay situated in a picturesque location by the river Barrow. Well worth the cost. We hope to return soon. Most recommendable.

Liked best: Sharing the breakfast scone with those hens and the comfortable sleep.
Liked least: The morning light is brilliant, for those who like to lie in a little too brilliant, curtains might be better than blinds in this case.
