“Incredible experience”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Tonbane is an incredible place, everything in the house had a previous life, even Tom, the owner! We had a great week, the awful weather helped us to appreciate the old cottage : we burnt turf in the stove, read old books, even played the organ (yes, there is one in the house!) and the old grammophone. Tonbane looks, smells, feels like a cottage from the last last century, it vibrates with old stories told around the fire, music played, whiskey poured or potin secretely distilled...
Tom has a story for every item in the house. He is a very generous and talented person, he refurbished the cottage himself, giving it a new life, and created from scratch a beautiful garden all around. The result is unforgettable.
If you like past times, old items and the smell of turf this is the place for you.

Our recent stay in this beautiful cottage was fantastic from start to finish, its location was great with beautiful views & just 10 minutes to a great wee beach! Tom was the perfect host & always there if needed. The cottage itself was spotless with everything there that you could need. Cannot wait to return!
