Great house in great location as central to all places we wanted to visit.
House was lovely cozy and clean. Had everything we needed for a family Holiday. We had a lovely relaxing holiday. Meeting the owners brother was a added bonus. So friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Kids loved seeing the cows and going up to see Michael feeding the cattle made their day. Kids even want to go back to see the man next door.
We really felt at home.
Great escape property in the country
We thoroughly enjoyed this home and the surrounding area. We were two families with 7 people in total and the sleeping accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The living area was a bit tight for our group but we spent so little time at home during the day that this was not a problem. Three bathrooms were great and the house was clean and tidy. The kitchen was good size for cooking and reasonably well equipped.
This area of Ireland was stunning and we were so happy that we chose it to explore and learn more about the Irish culture. The Pearse Cottage just down the road had very wonderful and passionate guides and was well worth the visit on the first day to set our plan for the rest of the week.
Getting supplies was not a challenge as there was a local shop not too far away and most of travels passed by bigger grocery stores. Una was very helpful with her suggestions but we did not meet with her personally and only briefly with her brother next door.
This property sits across the road from the water but has no direct access to it.
Would return here in a heart beat!
Home away from home
If you like to get away from the hub and live for a period of time in a stunning area, this cottage is for you. Only 2 travelers but the house is large enough for a family. The house is well laid out and the kitchen is well stocked. The owners brother lives next door and if you need anything he is very helpful. The road in front is 2 lane but you must be careful because people do drive fast in Ireland. There is not a lot of traffic on the road.
Wonderful, homey place to stay.
Our family loved our stay! The Connemara region was beautiful. We travelled to Inismore (one of the Aron islands. It was a great day trip wished we'd stayed longer. This home isn't in a largely populated area, but with a car close enough to many attractions. We hope to return one day. Thank you to Una and all whom are a part of the upkeep of the place. It was wonderful to come to a clean and well taken care of home. The basic cooking ingredients in the kitchen were appreciated. Missing Ireland already.
Fantastic gem of a house for family of 7
Our family of 7 had a wonderful time in the very spacious and highly equipped cottage.
We were delighted at the exceptionally high standard of cleanliness on arrival, primarily for the benefit of our 4 month old baby, and had a great time using the house as a base for many trips to the beaches and scenic drives in the area.
Without doubt, we'd highly recommend this beautiful house for anyone interested in staying in the area and can't praise Una enough for her prompt and extremely helpful replies to our messages.
Of note - due to the location of the house it'd be prudent to stock up on groceries and car fuel before arriving, but the spins in every direction are truly remarkable and rewarding...
We had a fantastic time and the home was perfect for our family of 8. Would definitely stay again.
