    We were very unlucky with the weather from Saturday evening to Tuesday as it was atrocious-cold,windy and very heavy rain. Consequently, the house felt comfortless with its abundance of velux windows, conservatory and wood or tiled floors. The heating wasn't particularly effective either. That changed on the Tuesday with the sunshine but we were incredulous to receive a heating bill for 59 euros on the Friday evening-especially as we'd left the property empty and unheated from the Wednesday morning to the Friday afternoon as we were attending a family wedding near Dublin. The Caretaker was equally incredulous when we explained and only charged us 20 euros, but I would advise anyone staying there to scrutinise their heating bill. We noticed other comments re. large heating bills in the Visitors' Book. Otherwise, the house was spacious, nicely decorated and with comfortable beds. Location was good and we loved Kilmore Quay and Mary Barry's Pub/Restaurant at nearby Kilmore. The property was good value when we were there in mid April.

    Really enjoyed our holiday in Tra Gheal. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. There is an excellent restaurant a five minute drive away - Mary Barry’s in Kilmore village and a pub next door to it. The nearest beach is a short drive away.

    A lovely holiday and a lovely place to spend time to relax! We had a great fortnight at Tra Gheal. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a bit of space to spread out! The house is large and rooms well proportioned. Would recommend visits to Wexford and Waterford, especially the ‘King of Vikings’ VR experience. House wise, lovely to have horses in the field next door! The house could do with new towels and tea towels as they have seen better days. Also the description of ‘beach within walking distance’ is a little off. Maybe on a good day when you’ve ridiculous energy and loads of time, but you need a car to drive to it. Not walking distance at all! Does need an outdoor table and chair set purchasing for the summer months. WiFi would also help when locating things to do as phone signal is poor at the house. Lovely home, that with a little attention to the details and tlc, would be even better. Care taker was nice and helpful.

    We stayed here the last week in June. The caretaker met us at house and was very friendly and informative. However, when she left I got a basin of hot soapy water and went out and washed cobwebs off the front door. My mum also got the hoover to cobwebs on the inside of sky light windows upstairs. In the shower tray in upstairs onsuite I had to clean away body hairs. The windows on inside were grubby with finger prints and could have done with a wash on outside. However the rest of the house and the bedding was all spotless The house is advertised as having patio furniture, this is a bit misleading, we were given a mismatch of patio chairs but there was no table... It wouldn't be a big ask or cost too much to put picnic table and benches in the garden. One large downside was not having any WiFi. More for finding out about things to do when you are in Wexford. This would be one of the reasons we would not return. The electric and oil wasn't too expensive for the week. We only had oil on for 2 hours in the week, most of us used the shower in upstairs onsuite as it was electric and therefore did not to heat water. Could do with information on how to use oven and what can be put into each of the outside bins. It is a lovely quiet country location and it isn't too far to drive for amenities. Mary Barry's, in Kilmore village is lovely for food and if you are lucky enough to get seated out the back they have a great outside play area for kids. The Saltee Chipper in Kilmore Quay is lovely and you can get great ice cream cups in Lick'd next door. We couldn't find a supermarket near by and went into SuperValu in Rosslare. The shop just up the road from house was quite expensive. There is also a Dunnes Stores and large Tesco in Wexford town. Weather was fantastic when we were here which really helped, the beach in Duncannon is amazing and you can drive your car onto it. Overall we had a great holiday and the house was lovely and in peaceful location, there were just a few things that let it down. The Irish National Heritage Centre is worth a visit.
