The house Is very spacious with plenty of room. Also the house was very clean and is equipped with everything you need. The kids really enjoyed the space of the garden and the play set with slide. We enjoyed the lovely walk down to the lake daily such beautiful scenery. My father was able to store his fishing gear In a pad locked shed located right at the house. We never met the owners Trish and Denis but they kept in touch to ensure we had everything we needed offering advice and keeping us right. We were greated by a man Seamus who was very welcoming and very helpful and the highlight was defiantly T-Bone the dog. My youngest has special needs and T-Bone was amazing with him and very patient. T-Bone followed him everywhere. We had a wonderful time even tho it was wet weather but that didn't stop us all having fun. We will definitely be looking to book next year for 2 weeks this time if available. Amazing family break

De grandes et belles pièces, un équipement plus que complet, des vrais lits king-size... Tout était parfait. Dans ces compliments je n'oublie pas Karen et Patrick et leur accueil très chaleureux. Et en plus de bons conseils ! Je pense notamment au pub d'Owen dans le village. Glenboy et Owen sont à recommander à tous ceux qui veulent une certaine idée de l'Irlande
