We've just returned from a 10 day stay in the cottage and a fabulous holiday. The bungalow offers warm, dry comfortable accommodation with stunning - ever changing - views of the local area. It's situated on the Sheeffry pass and close to the Atlantic Way. There is no shortage of cycle routes and walking in the area with good road access to attractions that are a little further away such as Achill island, the fabulous hidden valley and the lovely village of Leenane. Gerry is the perfect host - not intrusive but available if needed.
