Magnifique maison

5 of 5
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Bay house où nous étions 9 amies et amis venus pécher aux grandes marées. La maison est très confortable et très bien équipée. Entre autres nous avons apprécié le local attenant (chaufferie) pour entreposer et sécher tous nos matériels et équipement. Une literie parfaite, vaisselle abondante, jolie et ustensiles de cuisine fonctionnels. Je recommande vivement cette maison avec des propriétaires voisins, à l'écoute de toute demande et prêts à rendre service. Nous avons fait de très belles pêches!

Quirky & homely

4 of 5
The farmhouse was wonderful with lots of character & equipped with everything we needed. One night was wet & windy but we were warm & cosy inside. First time I had been to Ireland so out & about most days, but fishing from the jetty was relaxing & peaceful. Details of local towns & highlights was invaluable & helped us to find some local gems we might have missed. The neighbours (although a long way away) were friendly and welcoming. Hope to be able to come again!
