A traditional style cottage, tastefully decorated, bright and spacious. Very quiet farm setting, yet only 20 minutes walk from the town of Athy. River Barrow runs adjacent, good for coarse fishing. Ideal central location for discovering Ireland.
The Pump House is a traditional style cottage, which overlooks a beautiful Victorian lawn with native and exotic trees to the front, and a cobblestone yard to the back. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout, bright and spacious, with the guests' comfort and enjoyment in mind. It has central heating and a solid fuel stove (logs are provided free of charge) as well as a range of extra complimentary amenities. It is located next to our 18th century house, in the middle of 35 acres of farmland dotted with ancient trees, shrubberies, and a wide variety of wildlife and domestic animals-yet only 20 minutes walk from the historic town of Athy. The Barrow runs adjacent to it and is ideal for coarse fishing or bird watching. We pride ourselves on the gentle hospitality we provide our guests and look forward to welcoming you soon!

The whole cottage is yours to enjoy. There is a lovely shrubbery leading to the river, and you are free to roam and enjoy the birdsong and the various animals that pop up now and again - rabbits, pheasants, chickens, ducks, horses, donkey, dog, cat...
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We enjoy welcoming our guests and seeing them enjoy our beautiful, peaceful corner of the world! Many great chats have been had by the fireplace with an Irish Coffee (or a whiskey!) in hand - we are neighbours after all! Still, we'll respect your privacy so you'll only see us when you feel like it.
The cottage only has one bedroom, where you have a choice of either a king size bed or two single ones. Two extra people can sleep in the loft over the kitchen, accessible only via ladder (not suitable for younger children or those with mobility restrictions).
Our house is your house - enjoy it! Strictly no-smoking indoors though. Pets/Parties may be allowed, please check first.

We are a big family, living in a big house surrounded by nature and various animals... We enjoy meeting people, entertaining, reading, film, music, travelling, food & drink! James is Irish, Claudia is Portuguese and we met in Munich. The kids range in ages from 7 to 19, four girls and then finally a boy! All well behaved... at times. Look forward to meeting you too!
