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.
Great property and view.
Nice and clean property and away from people and congestion.
We had a wonderful time. My daughter and her family came over from England for 5 days. The two granddaughters were thrilled to know that the cow was about to deliver a new born. The owner's brother, Michael, lives next door and he was most helpful. He taught me a little Gaelic. I got pictures of the new calf that I will send to England. The fireplace was an added joy to experience. We have done B & B's in our past five trips to Ireland. This was the first time we rented a cottage. I believe we started at the top of the line. The kitchen had every item that you could think of. well stocked for every need.
We just loved our stay.
