Marion met us at the door for a quick tour of the house- and let me tell you the pictures don’t do it justice, this place is huge! The rooms were large, clean and beds comfortable and warm. There is a working fire place in the kitchen and two large bathrooms- everything spotless! I can’t say enough nice things about Marion, her level of customer service far exceeded any expectations I had before our meeting. Marion had a few food sundries waiting for us, which was very much appreciated after our early morning drive from the airport. I had quite a few questions before our arrival and Marion was very prompt in responding to every question and concern. I could write paragraphs about the amazing time we had in Ireland, me and my family will definitely be returning, and I would 100% recommend the Tavneena house to anyone looking for a house rental in Ireland. We will definitely be back!!

We found it easily with the directions given, although directions from the north would have been helpful. There was room for both our cars on the drive and the garden was lovely. Big enough to keep our dogs amused, exploring every corner. The cottage has a lovely light, well equipped kitchen diner at the back with French doors opening on to a patio area with ample chairs for sitting out. The living room is cosy and both bedrooms a generous size. You do have to go through the first bedroom (low door on entering) to get to the second master bedroom. The bathroom is small with a low ceiling, but ample facilities. The nearest town of Tubbercurry was about 10 minutes by car with a good selection of takeaways. We loved the curry we got from The Jewel in the Crown.

The cottage is a joy with fully fitted kitchen, excellent bathroom with a walk-in shower enclosure a lovely dining area with glass fronted inglenook stove and an abundant supply of turf, leading into a sitting room with an extensive library, television and games. The upstairs bedrooms are light and airy and the beds are really comfortable, all in all a gem.
