The kids loved it and didn't want to leave, we wished we could have stayed longer, it was like a home from home. Just what we wanted, everyone was very nice and helpful towards us and made us very welcome. Thanks to colin, etna & husband and the lovely lady that collected the keys.

It is a rural setting but with fair amount of facilities close by. It is close to interesting features such as neolithic burials and peat bogs. Tom and Tina couldn't have been nicer. Their property is a genuine 18th century building. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time in the farm area itself. We were too busy trying to see all that Ireland has to offer. Of course a week is not going to do justice to Ireland. Don't miss the great sights and sites just off the beaten track in this beautiful part of Ireland. And my thanks to Tom and Tina for making a memorable vacation. Tom is full of local knowledge and a brilliant guide with lots of advise. Five stars for the location, for the farmhouse and for the hosts. Thanks
