wish we could've stayed longer
This was such a fantastic stay! We just needed a quick overnight here and it was perfect location for us. Ample street parking available, pubs within walking distance to grab a bite and a pint, and Matty was so welcoming and helpful. There was also a newish electric car charging station across the street that we were able to use for our eco rental. Can't forget to mention Matty had supplies for a great full breakfast available as well. We wished we could've stayed longer here.

Mattys was a quiet pub which was conveniently located above the pub. The refrigerator was stocked with plenty supplies for a great Irish breakfast! There was a pub which was open later just down the street. Everyone was welcoming!

This was the perfect stop-off for our family if 5, to break-up our journey to Dublin, from the Rosslare ferry. Clean, spacious, welcoming, this property ensured a relaxing night’s sleep. Matt, our host was fantastic! Excellent communication and helpfulness throughout. We were particularly grateful to his going to the trouble of filling the fridge with gluten-free goodies (2 if our children are coeliac), for a feast of a breakfast! Highly recommend.

Matt was friendly and helpful. He picked us up from the train station and offered suggestions. The walk by the River Barrow was one of our favorite things to do.

My wife and I had a very friendly welcome from host Matt. Lovely clean and fresh downstairs apartment with large bathroom/wet room. Breakfast pack includes tea, coffee, bread, milk, cereal and all you need for a cooked breakfast. Superb pint of Guinness from the pub next door. 😀
