The stables are compact but very comfortable. Valerie is extremely welcoming and left home-baked bread and other food items as a welcome pack. Communication was speedy and helpful -we booked at short notice. The pictures are very accurate. Kinvara is a delightful little village by the water. It is a short walk from the apartment to the port , several restaurants and a supermarket. Could easily stay longer and use it as a base to explore the region.

Such a lovely place for our trip. Stayed there with my parents (in their 60's), husband, and two year old son. We all were completely comfortable and loved the location. Mike and Valerie were welcoming and had some freshly baked bread, butter, and ham waiting for us. Lovely restored, cozy guest house!

What a hidden gem! The village of Kinvara was the perfect home base for our trip & had great restaurants & pubs. Valerie went above and beyond to help us make the most of our time in the area, even giving us a tailored guide to nearby attractions, how to access them, and their historical relevance. She was so warm and personable & the dog Skye added just the right amount of fun. The stables are rustic and beautifully restored. A perfect place to call home for a few days!

Thanks Missie for your kind review.. Yes I have put labels on the switches and mirrors going into all rooms this weekend... To many people do not read the directions on the website so the easiest thing to do is to let them get physical directions in the pub as its so near the house ..

You should stay here. It is gorgeous, impeccably clean, and a chic and cozy design. The perfect Irish cottage. Plenty of space for a family of four. We stayed two nights but should have stayed four. Kinvara is a gem of a town, a true highlight of our trip, 10+ pubs (Sexton's was our fav, owned by Valerie's sister, fantastic authentic live music on a Tuesday night) and such a wonderful alternative to touristy hustle bustle places. We really appreciated that Valerie and Michael drove us to and fro the castle as we were without a car. So kind and hospitable. Would like to have stayed longer, would stay again.

Valerie and Mike were perfect hosts! ❤️ Their space is unique and gorgeous. They took their stable and made it into the coolest 3 bedroom apartment. When we arrived we were welcomed with homemade brown bread and other lovely treats. We had a blast in the morning hanging out in Valerie and Mike's house with their other guests. She put together a great itinerary for us for the day and it was a joy driving through this beautiful part of the country. The restaurants in Kinvarra are top notch, but first and foremost you can't miss Sexton's pub right down the hill. Owned by Valerie's sister, Ruth, a 5th generation owner, it's the perfect pub with live Irish music and the ambience you hope for in an Irish pub. Stay with Valerie and you'll make a friend for life. P.S. You'll also fall in love with their dog, Skye!
