I have recently returned from a golfing trip with 9 golfers and we stayed at Cartron House Farm near Loughrea in the west of Ireland. Our hosts Tim and Ann were very welcoming and couldnt do enough for us. From the moment Tim picked us up in the mini bus at Shannon airport nothing was too much trouble. Although quite remote the facilities at the farm are second to none and the private bar is a gem for thirsty athletes after a hard day on the course! The food was excellent and plenty of it and Ann can cater for all tastes. The golf courses Tim had arranged were first class and all in all it was an excellent break and I would thoroughly recommend Cartron House Farm as either a base for golfing or touring or any other form recreation available locally, riding shooting etc.
