Last Friday’s announcment stating that the Hospitality Sector could reopen for guests was wonderful to hear. Here at our cosy, peaceful and quiet holiday cottages, we have tended the gardens and the buildings so that they will be looking their best for you when you return. We look forward to the activity of guests arriving, becoming accostomed to their surrounds and enjoying the country walks, bikes, and of course, the local village of Terryglass with its history, heritage and welcoming community.
These last few weeks have allowed us the opportunity to look at what we have here and we know that visitors to our self catering cottages enjoy the authenticity of the experience here, the closeness to nature, the peace to be with oneself and ones family, the access to the wider Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands region. The wonderful grounds of Portumna Castle, Portumna Forest Park, Nenagh Castle and Birr Castle are open to visit. The expanses of the Silvermines Mountains, Keeper Hill, The Graves of the Leinstermen at Tountinna overlooking Killaloe/Ballina all await the lover of the outdoors. The quiet lanes around us are ideal for a family cycle or a leisurely walk. Canoeing and Kayaking on Lough Derg also awaits you.
We will be asking guests to do what we all know is required of us now. Social Distancing, Handwashing, Cough Etiquette are now familiar terms. We will have your cottage ready for you for a 6pm check in, this allows us to have more time to do the necessary work in advance of your arrival, all information will be available in your cottage or advance and because we live on site, we are here should you need to text or phone us about anything. We can’t shake your hand on arrival however we will certainly open our hearts to you!
We will follow all guidelines, allowing you, our guest, to have a relaxing stay. You deserve this break!
