“A truly beautiful home, which I couldn't recommend highly enough.”

The farmhouse is easily accessible and very private. Upon arriving at the farmhouse we were pleasantly surprised that it exceeded our expectations. The pictures do not quite show how beautiful this home really is. The interior is set up nicely for a family with children. There is a large play room and a nice fireplace. The home is situated on an active farm which is part of its charm. There is a good sized yard that is safe for kids to stretch the legs and have some outdoor fun. The family was very friendly and accessible. One of our children had an ear infection and needed to go to the doctor and the family helped us tremendously by helping us to set up an appointment with the family practitioner. The farmhouse is also located in a central location that is easy to take a day trip to just about anywhere on the Island. In all we had a wonderful trip to Ireland and the farmhouse was a big part of that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Morett Hoyse. The location is ideal and the decor of the house beautiful. Our family of four adults were very comfortable with their own rooms, with plenty of living space for everyone to spread out and enjoy a relaxing holiday as part of a bigger holiday. The house is very well equipped to self cater and we loved lighting the fires.
We did day trips from the house and even ventured as far as Belfast and as close as the local thatched pub, and the local designer outlets. The owner met us on arrival and ensured we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend the property and would certainly make a return visit.

“Feels Like Home”

We stayed at this home with my family of 5 plus my in-laws so we had 7 people total for a week long stay. This house was the perfect choice and immediately felt like home. The house had a wood stove and cozy fireplace. The setting was in the Irish countryside that was very charming, but we were in downtown Dublin in an hour and on the South coast at Cork in less than 2 hours, so it made a great base for exploring all over the country. The home had a play room with toys already in it for our children that they loved and had a pack-and-play for the baby as well. We ate many meals at Treacy's restaurant and pub less than a mile away, which was great food and better company. Justin was great in welcoming us to the home and giving us recommendations on local sites, scenes and restaurants. I have never vacationed in the same place more than once, because I always want to see something knew, but this will probably be an exception. I hope to come back and stay here again soon as it was just a great home and excellent place to vacation.

I stayed in the house with a group of colleagues as we were delivering a course in portlaoise. We wanted to find a place we could stay that was a home away from home and we got that and more! It is a beautiful house with everything you might need at hand. For us being warm and comfortable in a clean house is essential..we got that and more. The owners Dad lives near by so any problems and help is at hand as well as a warm welcome from all ..thank you!
