Beautiful modern home in a rural setting
average rating of 4.6 based on 26 reviews
Living in the north west of Ireland. We live close to the sea and the mountains.

Fantastic stay in a truly magical place .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family here for a week in May. The house is amazing, comfortable and spotlessly clean.

It is in a rural location and is very peaceful. We heard the cuckoos and sheep and not much else. The area is simply beautiful and there are great walks and hikes in every direction, even a laneway behind the house that leads up a mountain! We visited Cong village, and walked around the ruins of the abbey and surrounding woodlands, it took our breath away. We did some sightseeing in Galway city and stopped off in Peacockes Hotel in Maam Cross on the way back - well worth a visit for some gift shopping!

The shop in Finny village is well stocked for all your needs.

The owner communicated well with us before and during our stay, and answered our questions in a timely fashion.

I love that we had a "self service" check in , so we could arrive at any time, the keys were left available to us and the information folder was a great help.

We hope to come back next year to this peaceful, magical place.

Freundliche und hilfsbereite Besitzer. Geräumiges, sehr gut ausgestattes Haus. Trotz der Abgeschiedenheit ein guter Ausgangspunkt um die nähere und weitere Umgebung zu erkunden. Wir hatten eine tolle, aber zu kurze Woche.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good week and got to explore some of the hidden treasures of the areas. As we are off the main tourist routes we are not over run by tour buses etc. We hope to welcome you to the area again sometime.

Een geweldig ruim huis in een mooi, rustig gelegen klein dorp.

Van alle gemakken voorzien. Een goed vertrekpunt voor verschillende uitstapjes naar steden maar ook voor wandelingen.

Stayed here in springtime with friends and we will definitely be back!

The house was as described, found the house using the directions given with no trouble. The house was very clean and had a good stock of basics (salt, spices, tea bags etc). Plenty of cups, plates for everyone which was great as we didn't have to wash them after each use.

We were greeted by the host who is from the area and she was able to give plenty of options for walking and hiking- the nicest one we did one morning as the sun was coming up we followed the lane the house is on which leads you to a base of small moutain (about 1km away) the scenery only got better as we went up!

This is a great place for anyone that loves the outdoors, on the rainy days we stayed in read books and board games. We had some great daytrips to Cong- a quaint little village, Kylemore Abbey, Galway and driving around Connemara.

Nearby there is a little shop which has all essentials and there is a pub a couple of mile away. We were lucky to catch some music there on the sunday night.

Een ruim en comfortabel huis in een prachtige omgeving.

  • 5 of 5

Het huis is heel groot waardoor het gemakkelijk door 8 mensen bewoond kan worden, mede door drie badkamers, een aparte ruimte met TV, ruime woonkeuken en huiskamer. Wasmachine, droger, bijkeuken, boeken en dvd's: alles draagt ertoe bij dat huurders hier een comfortabele tijd door kunnen brengen. Ondanks de grootte is het toch ook een heel gezellig huis en het biedt prachtig uitzicht op de omringende bergen. De omgeving is erg mooi; er is genoeg te doen om er weken te kunnen doorbrengen. De mensen van de winkel vlakbij zijn heel behulpzaam wanneer dat nodig is.

Het enige dat ons tegenviel zijn de hoge energiekosten die na afloop van ons verblijf betaald moesten worden. Wij (met 2 personen) moesten na één week € 106,- betalen voor olie en elektriciteit terwijl we een week ervoor in een ander deel van Ierland slechts

€ 12,50 betaald hebben. Dat is dus iets om rekening mee te houden.

Grosses Haus, gut ausgestattet, etwas abgelegen und sehr ruhig. Auto erforderlich. Schöne Aussicht.

  • 3 of 5

Schönes Willkommensgeschenk. Die Hausübergabe hat nicht ganz optimal geklappt. Angenehmer Aufenthalt. Im Haus sind die Duschen resp. das Warmwasser etwas sanierungdbedürftig und die Abläufe sollten entstopft werden. Die restlichen Räume und Zimmer sind gemütlich und gut ausgestattet. Wir hatten einen angenehmen Aufenthalt und wurden durch die Besitzer per E-MAIL liebenswürdig informiert und gut dokumentiert.

Owner's Response: Das Haus liegt mitten auf dem Land und das Wasser ist nicht von einer Hauptversorgung, also kann es manchmal etwas langsam sein. Wir sind nicht in einer großen Stadt! Die Temperatur des Wassers muss angepasst werden, bevor Sie eine Dusche haben. Als du im Haus später als gewöhnlich ankam und dann wieder ausging, bevor Emma dich treffen konnte, machte es die Handover schwierig.   Sie besuchte das Haus bei zwei Gelegenheiten an diesem Abend, um dich zu treffen. Wir hoffen, Sie wieder willkommen zu heißen. Maria.
