|Spice Cottages in Dungannon|
|Clove Cottage in what once was a stable.|
This was a perfect place to stay. The Cottage was renovated from 150 year old stables on the property. You would never know this had once been a stable!!!! It was outfitted with everything one would need and the hosts, Olive and Perry, had left a "welcome" package for us: milk in the fridge, bread for toast, butter, jam and tea. We added a few things from a local grocer---fruit, orange juice and scones. We had breakfast there every morning, but ate the remaining meals out---often at Thomas' house.
The resident cat, Marmalade, was friendly and often sat on the ledge outside our window.

In the back, Olive had a wonderful garden with lettuce, peas, strawberries (not yet ripe). And two Shetland ponies had a small fenced pasture out back.

The main house where Olive and Perry live has a thatch roof. That was very interesting to see.

If you should be traveling to this part of Northern Ireland, I heartily recommend that you consider staying at Spice Cottages.
