Wonderful

5 of 5
Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay in this beautiful house. The location was amazing, looking out onto the bay. We were fortunate with brilliant weather for the majority of our stay, and we made the most of it by seeing as much as possible and doing lots of walking! The house itself was fantastic, very well equipped and warm even on the cold winter nights, the large fire was particularly nice. We have already recommended it to our friends!

WE had a most enjoyable stay at this lovely home. It's spacious, well located and comfortable.

5 of 5
The location is perfect to explore the beautiful countryside and near enough to the town of Cahirciveen. Perfect for a family, good feeling of space with an extensive front lawn. Valerie and Brendan are great hosts and always willing to help. Brendan's fishing trips are superb, one of the highlights of our trip. Well equipped and warm, all utilities in good working order. Highly recommend this house.
