What people say

“From start to finish we had the most amazing experience at spellcast cottage. Our youngest is Harry Potter mad and from the minute she entered the cottage she didn’t want to leave. When the girls found the secret hideout they had a ball. The layout of the cottage is like been at Harry Potter. The amount of detail that went into it is outstanding. The lovely little welcome gift from Olivia was a beautiful touch and well needed after the car journey. We had a very happy comfortable stay there. And look forward to returning in the future. Many thanks to Olivia and family.”

Shaun from Co. Cork, Ireland — October 2021

“Absolutely amazing cottage. I travelled with my Harry Potter-mad 3 kids, 17, 13 and 8. We enjoyed everything about the stay. Highly highly recommend the Cottage. We’ll be returning!!”

Marie from Co. Mayo, Ireland — September 2021

“Amazing, beautiful, magical, words can not explain this cottage. From the moment you step through the door, not only were the children blown away but myself and my husband were gobsmacked. The attention to detail, it’s like stepping onto a Harry Potter movie set. Will definitely return, hopefully very soon. Thank you Olivia.”

Sophia from Co. Dublin, Ireland — September 2021

“Spellcast Cottage is truly magical. The two nights we spent there (2 adults and 2 children) were so much fun. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and really well equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. The decor is to a very high standard and we all loved the surprises in the cottage.”

Sharon from Ireland — August 2021

“Myself, my wife and two children aged 8 and 12 had a wonderful time at spellcast cottage. The thought and detail put into every area was fantastic. I’d say the pictures don’t do it justice, and the place was absolutely spotless. Thanks again Olivia, I would highly recommend your place to others, and hope to get back sometime, it’s magical…”
