Property needs some signage or a street number for guests to find it more easily. Once located and settled in, we loved it!

Perfect stay in a beautiful house. The only downside was that we didn't stay longer. The house is a lovely masterpiece and very well equipped. In a perfect location to discover the Midlands but you can also easily spent some relaxing days in the house and it's broad garden. Communication with Justin was perfect. Hope to return soon.

The round house was terrific! We were thrilled with the space inside, the beautiful craftsmanship of the home and tranquil location. We were in Ireland for a wedding and this place provided a get-a-way from the festivities that was so relaxing and comfortable. We used the yurt for our son and girlfriend and it was such a unique place for the extra family members to sleep in. The bathtub was wonderful and a long soak with the beautiful view was priceless. The beds were so comfortable. We cooked breakfast each morning and the kitchen was complete with everything we needed. Just was amazing and so helpful. He made us feel at home and comfortable in his home. You must have a car to access this property, but the drive from Athy was quick and beautiful. Make sure you have specific directions (we called Justin to guide us in). We would return and highly recommend this property.
