Property Description

Our eco-friendly, cosy cottage is surrounded by green fields with view to the Comeragh mountains and away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still only 10 minutes’ drive away from Waterford City Centre. The local village with Pubs (several!) and shops is within walking distance from the cottage. Tom’s Cottage is an ideal base to explore the South-East of Ireland and is the perfect place to relax during your travels in a friendly and comfortable environment. The small number of guests allows us to look after everyone individually. The manager Tom is a well-respected Irish Tour Guide with years of experience in looking after tourists visiting Ireland and is happy to give you tips for your travel journey. The cottage is the perfect place to make a home from home whilst visiting Ireland on a budget.

With options of private rooms and small dorms (4-6 people), our guests also enjoy:
Free Parking
Free 24/7 kitchen access
Free Bicycle storage
Free Wifi
Tea & Coffee making facilities (24/7)
Free Linen
Free All Ireland Tour Advice
Free transfer from Mooncoin village at certain times per day (inquiries need to be received at least 48 hours before arrival – places are limited and subject to terms and conditions).

Breakfast options are available.

In our cottage you can expect a comfortable common room with sofas, TV, a small library, a dining area, and kitchen facilities. The outdoor area is particularly popular during the summer. We invite you to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Our cosy and friendly cottage is ideal for meeting other people for a friendly chat, watch a movie or maybe go to the local Pub? Our staff speak several languages (English, French, Spanish, German) and are always happy to help & give advice for your journey. If you are traveling with children, we recommend you to book one of our private family rooms.

Located in the green belt outside Waterford City Centre we have great views of the Comeragh mountains and the starry skies. There are plenty of things to see and do nearby, ranging from sight-seeing and cultural activities in the urban centres of Waterford and Kilkenny, to outdoor activities, such as hiking, cycling, golfing, horse riding, surfing, fishing, kayaking, castle sight-seeing… Ask us if you have a particular interest and we will be more than happy to provide you with information.

Tom and his cottage are a treasure which should be respected. This isn't a party hostel, it's a peaceful, cosy slice away from the smoke where you can spend quality time with Tom and other like-minded travellers. I stayed here near the end of my hectic road trip and it was the exact breather I needed. also, pick your night right, and the local pub down the road may have some live music to enjoy

Lovely place, lots of good chats and many advises for travelling. Selfmade in a thoughtful way. Cutest Dogs. Clean kitchen, cozy doorm and unrivalled price. Free Irish history lesson. First place to consider in that area.

Tom was such a nice person to talk to and is willing to share his knowledge on the history of Ireland. Amazing company and even though I came on a calmer night. The hostel is located out in the country which allowed me to have such a great sleep because of how quiet it was. Be ready for a bit of a journey into Waterford if you do not have your own car though! During my overnight stay I became sick, Tom was so understanding and allowed to me to rest so I could get back on my feet in no time!
