    The Red Bus. Firstly the welcome was superb. Monica and Dermot were such gracious hosts and generous with their time. They showed the children the rabbettes, ducks and hens which was one of the highlights of the trip. We stayed on the Red Bus last week, July 2020. We had our neice and nephew aged 3 and 6 for one night. They absolutely had the best experience very excited to sleep on a bus. The bus was extremly well kitted out, spacious, clean and comfortable. It was warm and safe for children. Toilet, shower, kitchen, plenty hot water and a lovely stove. Exceptional renovation with many features intact. A unique and hospitable experience. Despite the wet weather we still had a great time. The location is truly amazing and scenic. Plenty of space to walk and enjoy.
    We will be back again. Thank you. All very happy customers. Jennifer, Brendan, Cian and Saoirse 😊

    We were the first to stay at the Red Bus and we loved the experience in early July. Monica and Dermot were brilliant hosts and Hunter the collie dog . The bus was spacious, clean and cosy. The stove is a lovely touch. The bus still has original features which adds to the quirkiness of this place. Regardless if it rained or shined the location is beautiful. We will be returning to the Ox mountains in the near future. Thanks again Amy, Jordan , Helen and Eoghan. 😊

    We had a 1night stay on The Red Bus as a surprise trip for our bus mad 6 year old. His face was just beaming on arrival, so excited. The enjoyment didn’t stop there, the hosts were fantastic the location was superb and our stay on the bus was just fantastic. We wish we had booked more nights but we will certainly be back for a return visit.
    Thanks for everything!!
