Great place to experience rural Ireland

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cottage was very nice. It was in a great location on a lake/lough, amongst fields of sheep, in a charming area. It was very romantic and idyllic in both sunny and stormy weather. A couple suggestions -

- In the main bedroom at least should have more blankets to cover both double beds when pushed together for a couple. It was very cold when we were there - April - and it was difficult

- should have an instruction book to explain how things - appliances, heating, etc - work or could be turned on in the cottage. We were able to figure things out through trail & error but it was somewhat tedious and aggravating

- should have wood that fits in the fireplace or some means of cutting the the wood to fit. That would have made it warmer sooner as well as much more romantic

- should have a sound system or stereo that works.....the only CD player that worked had a CD stuck in it and, while we love The Beatles, there's only so many times you can listen to the same CD. And since internet, phone, and other connectivity was nonexistent or sketchy at best, music would have been nice

We would definitely stay here again despite some of the challenges we encountered

Quirky and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

The style of the cottage along with the decor, mixed with the prominent German theme of art, books and German language guidebooks gave this place a quirky feel. However, we fell in love with it instantly. The greenhouse type porches on the front gave us 180 degrees views of the Lough in front of the house along with the hills that rose above it.

We wish we had more time to explore the places around Tourmakeady and because it was Joyce Country made the stay all the more special.

Thanks Wolf for the wonderful place you have and we hope to take the opportunity in the near future to come stay at your place again.

One side note, might want to check periodically with the house keeper to make sure he has enough keys. I believe they obtained the keys that the cleaning lady use for us to access the house. No worries, we took the opportunity to grab a burger at the little roadside Chippy stand operated by a lady who lives behind it, stopped by the lough and ate while waiting for the keys. Besides that it was a wonderful visit.

Es war toll, es hat wirklich an nichts gefehlt und das Häuschen ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und liegt zwar etwas ab vom Schuss, aber mit traumhaftem Bllick auf den See! Und die Ruhe.... wir als Städter fanden diese besonders beeindruckend!!

Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und wundervolle Tage dort verlebt- vielen Dank!!!

In verdant Tourmakeady, this semi-detached house offers access to a natural escape and a wide range of outdoor activities, including fishing in the nearby lake and rivers, bird watching and walking. In addition, you will have the possibility to rent a motorboat for 60€ per day as the house boasts a private lake access.

Golfers can tee off at Westport Golf Course, Castlebar or Ashford Castle, merely 27 kilometres away. You’ll also find superb restaurants, bars and grocery stores within 7 kilometres of your door. Nearby "Maire Lukes" Pub offers traditional Irish music and dancing for your entertainment.

While abandoning your gorgeous natural surroundings might be a challenge, there is much to explore in the Western Ireland region. Popular day trips around the area include hiking in the Connemara National Park; cycling down The Great Western Greenway; driving along the West Irish coastline; and learning about the tradition of sheepdog herding while playing with cuddly puppies in Shanafaraghaun.
