  • Pretty cool straw thatched roof building. Admission was a little steep as we had just been to Cahir Castle and had to pay again. I suppose it helps with the upkeep of the house though. We were in a rush so we didnt get to do the tour, but it was neat to see, and took a couple pictures.
  • This place is a gem. 150 year old house, lovingly restored. The tours are charming, as the staff really love the place. Quirky, and the surround park is a very pleasant place to spend a nice day.
  • Beautiful place to visit and lots of signs about to say it's disabled accessible but we were disappointed to find its not we didn't get to the cottage as access was up a lot of steps not exactly possible for disabled people unable to manage steps or stairs so the signs were very misleading. Only place accessible was the disabled toilets.
  • Lovely gardens and beautifully restored with some original pieces. One of my highlights of this trip to Ireland.
  • Fascistic trip back in time at the Swiss Cottage. Lovely grounds and really informative tour. Would recommend to anyone in the area.
