We are delighted  to have reopened and  welcoming our guests back to ‘The Cottage’. There have been a number of changes to how we do things, to make ‘The Cottage’ a safer place for guests and staff to ensure we are ‘Covid Secure’.

The number of available rooms has been reduced, with no more than forteen guests.  Room bookings will be for a minimum of two nights, to allow for extended cleaning and sanitising.  Single night bookings will be released subject to availability.  A big thank you to all our guests who kindly deferred their bookings during lockdown, many of whom have now rescheduled.   We very much look forward to finally being able to extend ‘The Cottage’ welcome to you.

We are fully booked for accommodation during September and October with availability  from November onward. We will advise of any late cancellations via this homepage below and will be bookable online.

Please note, we close on Sundays and Mondays.

We are also very pleased to now be able to welcome non resident guests for dinner Tuesday to Saturday as well as lunches Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.   With much reduced capacity, we are however fully booked for lunch & dinner during September with limited availability in the restaurant for lunches only from October onward.  Any cancellations giving late availability will be posted here.  Please call direct on 017 687 78409 between 10.00am- 4.00pm Tuesday to Saturday or email.

To give you peace of mind details of specific measures can be viewed here. We will continue with our relaxed cancellation policy with transferable or refundable deposits for Covid related cancellations.

We have extended the expiry dates for gift vouchers from the lockdown period to 18 months.
