Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Stay ! This stay was unique in many ways. Apart from the Historic value of the say - a town with so much history, we were only 15 km from Clare and other main centres. Loved the wood fire, used it every night, kitchen a little small but this did not worry us based on the overall property - highly recommended and thank you for the stay ! :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Tranquil Retreat Mintaro is a real gem of a town. The lack of light pollution makes a night walk to see the constellations unforgettable. The Hideaway has a tranquil courtyard that is perfect for morning coffee and a good book, followed by afternoon tea in the front walled garden amongst the pomegranate tree and abundant bird-life. Highly recommend a stay in this earthly historic accommodation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The beds were very comfortable and the cottages quietly situated which ensured a good nights sleep. Whilst the two person spa bath may be very romantic seems a waste of precious water and very extravagent when no decent kitchen provision. However it meant we ate out every night which was very welcome.!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely character filled cottages and good location in the Clare/Gilbert Valley. Easy walk/drive to all attractions and amenities. Good breakfast provisions (cereal, bread, eggs, bacon). Very comfortable bed in a large bedroom. Nice surprise to have a laundry available with all facilities. When the property is full you can hear the people in the adjoining room. Very comprehensive information folder
