Lovely house in a quiet location. About 10 min drive to Virginia. Ruth was on hand to welcome us and settle us into the house and made herself available if required. We all enjoyed our stay at Ruth's place and would recommend it to anyone. (Brian, June 2017)Brian, June 2017
Ruth's house was exactly what we were looking for. The house was clean, modern and spacious. The welcome wine and treats were a surprise and greatly appreciated. I would recommend all types of guests staying with Ruth. Thanks again.Michael, June 2017

Cette charmante et spacieuse maison à la campagne, située au bord d'un lac poissonneux, a été notre base lors d'un séjour de pêche à la mouche dans l'est de l'Irlande. Sa situation géographique centrale, nous a permis de découvrir plusieurs rivières à truites situées dans un rayon de 30 à 45 minutes, dont la rivière Black Water de Kells qui passe à moins de 7 km de la maison. Un superbe séjour pour amoureux de pêche et de nature. Un grand merci à Ruth pour son accueil et la qualité de sa maison.Sébastien, April 2017
