Wonderful location, lovely little cottage, great home base for exploring Galway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quiet, private setting surrounded by trees and birdsong. We walked around the Lisdonagh Estate morning and evening, fed the donkey and the horses as we walked through the paddock to the lake.

Very Poor

  • 1 of 5

We loved Galway and this place was ideal for visiting.

However, we were very shocked by the state of the cottage on our arrival. The furnishings and appliances were extremely tired, dirty and poorly maintained. It does not look bright, clean and fresh as it does in the website pictures.

In fairness we were moved to another cottage on the owner's estate which was larger and cleaner but again appliances had not been properly maintained and many did not work properly or safely.

Owner's Response: We have been awaiting this Review It is important to read it in context We have been happily welcoming guests to the Estate for over 20 years We finally requested that this elderly British Couple tell us how much we must pay them to leave. We immediately paid them the requested money to go We felt we had exhausted every possible human endeavour to appease them with our extensive resources and effort The only comment further I would make is to advise them to remain at home and not spread their misery abroad Deeply unpleasant encounter

Had a pleasant stay!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the cottage very much, such a peaceful setting. Beds were comfy and a good size bathroom. Finloa was a dear and the girls adored Saffron. We took a tour from Galway to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher and it was an easy drive to the city centre. The only side note would be the living room furniture is a bit tired and lack of dinner plates. And maybe information on where the switch to the oven is. Otherwise it was a lovely stay and we would definitely stay there again, or perhaps in one of the rooms off the courtyard!

Beautiful cottage

We had a magical stay at the cottage, absolutely beautiful area and the cottage was so cute and perfect. It included everything we needed to be comfortable, warm/cozy, to cook, and to enjoy. We would come back over and over again.

Lovely cottage, beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Our time at the Gate house was very comfortable. We spent one night and then were moved to the Coach House which was even more comfortable and spacious. Finola was so welcoming and gracious. I hope we will be able to return at some point in the future.
