The Pump House

The Pump House has been recommended by Pollyanna from the USA as one of her all-time favorite places to stay!

Traveler Favorite - June '08

The Pump House, Athy, County Kildare, Ireland

Why so darn good? "It's a small self-catering cottage on a farm with a very friendly donkey who likes to stick his head over the half door!"

Location: "Clean and cosy."

Rooms: "Large, bright, and airy ensuites."

Food: "As it's self catering there's no food but the owners kindly left some home-made scones and jam along with a bottle of wine for our arrival."

Vibe: "Relaxed and peaceful."

Keep in Mind: "It's about a mile from the main village and if you're not fond of dogs, chickens or donkeys this may not be the place for you."
