Hanora's Cottage is an amazing place. We had trouble finding it using our GPS, but our stay was worth the trouble. The room was wonderful, large with a sitting area and lovely view of the valley. The bathroom was spectacular, large and tiled, including a jacuzzi. Unfortunately our tub's jets did not work (but it was roomy enough for both...

This was a spur of the moment trip for myself and my partner. We were booked and on the road in less than an hour, Hanora's is in the beautiful Nire Valley in the Comeragh mountains ideal for walkers. We were chilling out so did not undertake anything too energetic on this trip! The room was lovely and had a...

Thank you Reenie, for your lovely positive review of our home. It was great to have your group and I am delighted that you all enjoyed walking the Comeragh Mountains. This is a wonderful spot for walkers and we get a lot of you hence the reason we put Jacuzzi's in every room! Do come again please! Mary.

Advance reservation worked fine and would we hoped ensure a warm reception at this acclaimed restaurant and guesthouse. Our arrival after a nearby hillwalk appeared to take the staff by surprise until they no so graciously acknowledged that the reservation had been made. There followed a series of omissions in service which left us wondering if non residents can enjoy...

For a long time I have wanted to stay at Hanora's Cottage and finally I made it recently. Sometimes reality fails to meet expectations, but that certainly was not the case on this occasion. The setting is beautiful, nestled between the mountains and oh so tranquil. I received a lovely welcome from Ina who served a lovely afternoon tea and...

Finola, it was great to have you with us at Hanoras. The moon walk was great, just a pity that the night was not just a little clearer, but the wonderful full moon did appear and we witnessed the Shuttle passing overhead just at the time our great guide had predicted.
