excellent location, very relaxing and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

the property is well located by the river and is very relaxing. The location is within reach to few shops, but at the same time gives the feel of being on your own and enjoy nature.

Will suit anyone looking to have a break away from busy city schedule.

Great Holiday Location

  • 4 of 5

My son and I recently planned a trip to Ireland with the intent of meeting/visiting with family as well as enjoying the beauty of the country. My son made all the arrangements to include our stay at the Hallow Cottage. I had seen pictures of the cottage prior to our arrival so I was very excited. While the pictures were great, they only told half of the story. The cottage was absolutely perfect. It was very clean and very cozy. It felt like we were “at home”. It had all the amenities you could possibly need. The view from the back was spectacular. The little town down the street was warm and welcoming. Our stay at the cottage was one of the many highlights of our trip. I highly recommend staying at the Hallow Cottage if you have the opportunity.

Very nice place near the river

  • 4 of 5

We booked the cottage just before Debbie T from Colorado told her review and I worried about the house. But for us (me, my husband and 2 friends of us), it was almost perfect. The heating was not a problem in june (we had much sun all the week !°), even if it's noisy when you are outside, you have to stop it., by night, we made fire in the fireplace, but we didn't need 3 hours of heating per day. Everybody knows, you need heating in North Ireland in February... and even a little in june !

I don't know if there were more cars in february, but for us it wasn't noisy at all : the main road is far from the house. The river is really just below the house : the vision is magical from the terrace ! What i could say it's that I thought the house was in the countryside and in fact it is in the village. But, after all, it was better for shopping and pint of Guinness in Conway's bar, where everybody is so nice.

We enjoyed our stay. The house is well located to go to giant causeway, Donegal, Londonderry, Belfast....

Please excuse my bad english

Not As Advertised

  • 2 of 5

We booked this cottage while in Republic of Ireland, about 3 weeks prior to arrival. The description said the cottage was on a "quiet lane". It was actually in an alley, which was just below a major street into the town, so there was plenty of road noise. We were there in February, so it was winter and fairly cold. The listing said nothing about paying extra for heat. But when I asked the owner, after booking and paying for the property, I was told that it did have a coal burning stove, and included would be 3 hours of heat per day. After that, we could pay 1 GBP per HOUR for heat! The cottage, although updated, was "stone cold" while we were there. Three hours of heat did essentially nothing to help the conditions. The extra charge for heat (which was not told to us until we had already committed/paid in full) was a ridiculous amount, and should have been told upfront. Out of six cottages we stayed at on our trip, this was the most expensive and the least enjoyed.

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie I am really sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Hallow Cottage. I apologise that it did not state on booking site that limited heating was included in price I have amended this in listing. Old time cottages stone built cottages are very hard to heat in Winter and as the cottage has only single glazed windows there would be some noise although I have not experienced this myself. As this is just first year we have been renting cottage as holiday home we will learn from feedback from guests like yourselves. The address of the cottage is 1 Hallow Road and I think it is a litle harsh of you to describe it as an alley way. I have done local market research and based my price for additional heating on local charges. I would like to ask you to reconsider your review especially your remark about cottage being situated in alley. Apologies again Ronnie Chism
