“lovely cottage with everything you need including plenty of quiet”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We received a very friendly welcome from Mary who made sure everything was ready for us and she even got the fire going for us. The cottage is very clean and well equipped with plenty of space. There were only two of us but it would have easily accommodated 6 or 7. The location is very convenient - secluded enough not to be isolated with shops at Kilmaine or the bigger ones at Balinrobe. We used the cottage as a base to tour Connemara, Galway and Mayo and even Valentia Island is easily achievable in a day. We would go again. Our security deposit was returned during our stay so no worries there and the price was excellent valus for money.

“this is a traditional yet stylish cottage on a working farm near the Irish "Lake District", we loved it.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Very well kitted out, lovely furniture, and well stocked kitchen. Spacious and attractive building. Very friendly owners who attend to everything promptly. We particularly enjoyed lighting the stove for cosiness but there is excellent central heating also.

We loved the area, there are several beautiful lakes nearby, Lough Mask is really shallow and child friendly. We swam and boated there. Cong is an historic and quaint little town, and Ballinrobe, though not as picturesque has terrific amenities for any family.

The third bedroom in the house which has 2 singles is upstairs. these stairs are steep and unsuitable for very small children. This was the only downside I could think of and is offset by the fun and safe location.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at this cottage for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is remote but an excellent base for seeing the area - most places are within a half hour drive e.g. Westport, Galway, Cong, Knock. The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and gave directions. Cottage was spacious and well equipt. Excellent value for money.
