Rent an Irish cottage?

Why not stay at a traditional cottage owned by a local Irish family in a rural setting in County Waterford. The Nurse's Cottage dates back to the 1930s and is located close to the village of Kilmeaden, outside Waterford City.

There are at least 19 local activities and sights to see and do nearby. More than enough to keep you busy over the course of a week or two!

The interior of the cottage has been renovated and modernized, so that it contains all modern conveniences, but it will still give you a taste of the old Ireland while you enjoy your visit to The Sunny South East of this beautiful country.
