Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

One of the finest rental properties we have ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean from top to bottom, plenty of space inside and out. Amazing views. Lawns and play area were in excellent condition and very well kept. Coffee, milk etc. left out for us on our arrival. I can't find a flaw with this property. Looking forward to going back next year. Thanks Siobhan & Des.

Lovely cottage with plenty of space and amenities. Siobhan and her husband were lovely to deal with and made sure we had everything we needed. Would absolutely recommend this place for any travelers to Ireland!

Beautiful & Serene Location - Perfect for a family stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house - the location was spectacular and the views were breathtaking! The house itself, is the the cleanest holiday home we have every stayed in - everything was pristine and true to the pictures. There were plenty of children's toys to keep our boys occupied during the rainy weather. Even with the rain, the views of the lake were stunning! We look forward to coming back again :)

Excellently fitted house in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best houses we've had in the many years we've been coming to Ireland as a group. The house is beautiful, has generously proportioned rooms and is in very good condition: furniture, fittings and fixtures all virtually pristine. The kitchen is well equipped with sufficient pots, pans, glassware and crockery for 6 people, as well as all the tools you could wish for, including oven gloves. Nice touch: Not only were cleaning agents and cloths of all types supplied, including dishwasher and washing machine tabs, Siobhan also left a welcome basket, with tea, milk and other necessities - like biscuits! - to start us off. There was also plenty of toilet paper, gas in the grill, and wood for the stove. The house is located at the end of a secluded drive with a spectacular view over Lough Mask, and is only a 10-min drive from Clonbur, which has a well supplied grocery store and 2 pubs with good food, both with music sessions. There are larger grocery stores about 20 mins drive away. The location is excellent for exploring Galway (ca. 1 hr to the city), Mayo and the wilds of Connemara, with lots of superb walking and fabulous vistas across mountains and lakes. We were lucky enough to get walking tips from neighbours doing some farm work next door and had 2 excellent long walks using the OS map Siobhan also kindly supplied. The big stack of brochures in the hallway with info about restaurants, excursions and sightseeing options was very useful, as was her folder with machine operation instructions, local restaurants and shops, etc. We were close enough to climb Croagh Patrick (challenging steep climb) had we wanted to, but the cloud cover was too unreliable when we were there. We had no rain all week, although it was October, and the changing skyscape over the lake was always a joy to watch morning and evening with a cuppa while sitting on Siobhan's lovely deck.There are play areas inside the house and in the garden for kids, with lots of toys supplied. This house would be good for couples looking for a secluded getaway, or a family with children who like walking, as well as for a group of friends like us who like to sightsee, walk and cook. Our one regret was that we never got to meet Siobhan in person, but phoned and texted her several times. She was an assiduous host even across the "ether", making sure we had all we needed, and made a very friendly and helpful impression. A fantastic experience all round!

Peaceful retreat from the hustle & bustle

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Kilbride Point and it won't be our last. The property is clean, comfortable and easy to live in for two weeks. Siobhan & Des couldn't have been more helpful hosts.

Even though the weather wasn't 100% on our side we still managed to get out and about and indulge in our passion for photography and eating in cosy tea rooms and cafes.

We ate out most evenings in Clonbur prefering Eddies Bar, some nights we picked up a 'ready meal' from the deli in Cong, not only was that great food but you were treated to the great Irish banter from the proprioter and his wife. Everyone is so friendly in the area and always more than happy to pass the time of day.

We like hoildays when you can just get to your destination and thats it your hoilday starts and we have found this in Kilbride Point and surrounding area.
