Staying at 'The Barn' has been lovely. It's such a cosy little place with a fantastic view, especially with the weather here. Having such a quaint village just down the road is also wonderful. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Thank you for a wonderful week in this wonderful part of Ireland. We had a wonderful week - the men found some great golf courses while the women poked through little villages. We all explored the mountains, Kilkenny with it's great castle & beautiful Powerscourt. Johnstown Castle was also a gem. Everywhere we were overwhelmed by the Irish hospitality, especially from John & Sailor. This holiday will live in our memories forever.

Second time this year we were here and wonderful as ever. It's not only the 'magical road' you know, this whole place has some magical feeling about it. It's so relaxing (We can eat and sleep all day…) however … not at the same time! Hope to see you end of year, if not, then next Spring.

We couldn't have found a more pleasant place to wind down after our 3 week sunny touring visit to Ireland. Everyone has been so welcoming, the scenery spectacular, the roads quiet ..if a bit bumpy! Thank you John & Mary, we do hope that we get back to see you another day. We will certainly recommend your cottages.

We had a very pleasant stay at 'The Barn'. The weather was sunny. We have been visiting Glendalough - it's a wonderful and magic place. We were at Kilkenny Castle, they have a guided tour for €11 - worth every € & very interesting. You can feel the history. We have also been visiting lovely gardens, Altamore Gardens. Rathwood and Huntington castle are lovely. And of course we drove around Wicklow, Ireland is a beautiful country and we have enjoyed our stay a lot. Sailor the dog is so nice. Thank you John for your hospitality and all your help. We had a really great time, thanks again.

Your fram is beautiful & what an amazing job you've done restoring the buildings! What will you do when they're all finished? We feel very at home in 'The Lodge'. Wicklow is simply beautiful, although sometimes hard to find the place you're looking for! This week we visited the Mottee Stone, Avoca & the hand-weaving factory, drove through Glendalough (very stunning), Mount Usher Gardens (excellent cafe) & many of the small villages. We wish we were here for longer as there's so much to see in the County! Thank you for all your help this week - we had a great time.

Thanks for a lovely warm welcome & comfy stay. Did not get to see & do all we wanted to but the Countryside hereabouts is lovely with many great walks to be had.

Another great stay at Minmore Mews - third visit! Love the new accomodation of 'The Byre'. We were lucky with the weather which meant we had a few beach visits - Ballymoney North is the favorite choice. Enjoyed some lovely walks - Avondale Country Park; Aughrim and Tomnafinnoge woods being enjoyed by all the family. Had a good day out at Kilkenny and did some shopping in Gorey. Friends stayed in 'The Lodge' for the first week and then it was a big family affair in the second week - 'The Barn', 'The Lodge' & 'The Store' - where Granny enjoyed entertaining the 7 grandchildren. Lovely visits from Nan,

Vinny, Rita & girls and the Cullen Family.
A great time has by all!
Thanks again John - we hope to be back again soon. Minmore Mews Self Catering Apartments in Shillelagh...
