If I could give this place 10 stars, I would!

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough words or lines within a review to tell you how amazing Mary is (the unbelievably perfect host), or how we fell in love with the small town of Kinvara and the community atmosphere coupled with the wonderful pubs (make sure you stop by Keoughs) or how much we loved just being a part of the countryside of Ireland. Mary was attentive to our needs, along with always giving us ideas for places to visit and helped out where ever she could. We were there six nights and I could have been there longer. Galway is about a 30 minute drive and Gort is about 15 minutes from Kinvara. The Cliffs of Moher are about an hour or so and we even took a day to see Kylemore Abbey which took us through Connemara. This was breathtaking. Of course the roads are small, but you get used to it. Mary's cottage is exquisite. Everything you need is there. The beds are very comfortable. The TV offers movies in the evening with some local programming, but if you're looking for something in particular, bring some DVDs for your trip. If I had to do it over again, the only thing I would change is staying longer. Thank you Mary for making our trip an experience of a lifetime.

Very comfortable

Mary was a wonderful hostess and the unit was a central point to visit Galway and the Cliffs of Moher.

Cute cottage, good location and great host!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great stay. Wish we could have stayed a little longer. Stayed here on our first night in Ireland. Mary was such a great hostess. She got it cleaned up real fast and made it so welcoming since we were running on no sleep. Short drive away from Galway which worked out great because we didn't want to stay in town. Quiet, safe little place in the country right outside a small town.

beautiful country spot near the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was just the right size for 3 adults. Full kitchen was perfect for our needs. The kitchen window overlooked a field of mother cows and their calves, which was great for us city folks to enjoy. It was far away from the town and quite peaceful. The owner and her family were delightful. We wouldn't definitely stay there again when we return to Ireland.

This property was exactly what we were looking for. It was small, quaint, backed up to a pasture, quiet, rural, and Mary made our stay ideal. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and could tell that Mary loves to have guests. Belle, the dog, greeted us each morning as well as the neighboring cows behind the house. This location was perfect for us. The only caution I would say is plan to have a car, we did and it worked out great.

Thanks again Mary!

Lovely Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute decision by our family to spend the weekend in Clare - what a great decision it was! Mary was very responsive and lovely, the place - very clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped/setup. I only wish we had more than just one night to spend there...if possible we will be back in the future. In addition to being a lovely place to stay, the area also has a lot to offer - near beaches, the Burrn, pubs and shops in Kinvara and not too far from Galway. Highly recommend!!
