“Lovely house, beautifully clean and a good size for a large family gathering.”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The location was perfect for our family get-together and we were all delighted with the accommodation. It was very clean and everything that we wanted was there. Games and wellies were unexpected but added to our holiday enjoyment. A great holiday location.

“A warm Irish welcome”
Reviewed November 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Upon arrival our 13 year old son said "this is the house dreams are made for". We were truly blown away by this house and the warm welcome we received (curtosy of the underfloor heating and the 2 bottles of wine left for us)

Irish hospitality at its best - there was nothing else we could have wished for (well maybe 30 degrees weather but that's not why people come to Ireland). Every box gets ticked - the house is spotlessly clean and well stocked - it has every utensil you could ever need and there's plenty to do inside from the pool table to the children's DVDs, books and games.

Outside is just as stunning and the location is great, a 5 minute walk down to the lake although it may take 30 minutes to walk back after stopping to talk to the neighbours. It's easy to get to Castlebar or Ballina for shopping and local bars are great for food.

We loved our week here and after reading all the great reviews beforehand we were not disappointed. It was great to see the kids running about outside (which was easy to do as there are wellies of every size to use in the hallway) and then coming in to an open fire. We will definitely be coming back again for another week in the near future

Many thanks to Paddy for his generous hospitality and making our stay truly amazing - will be speaking to you once our 6 numbers come up haha

Regards
Amanda, Chris, Joseph, Ellie, Eva & baby Eila

“Great house with stunning views”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Myself, my wife, our adult sons and two grandchildren stayed at Pontoon House in August 2016. The house, the location and facilities exceeded our expectations. Even though we were a large group the superb kitchen and huge dining area allowed us to dine together as a family which was a great experience. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms were good and gave us privacy. The safe and secure garden suited the grandchildren and the stunnining views overlooking Nephin and surrounding countryside were a sight to behold. The house isn't far from Castlebar, we the most of our holiday and as always we visited Keem Bay, Achill Island the most beautiful place on earth. Finally, the pool table was a bonus. The only real critism was the wifi was very intermittent. Thanks Paddy we had a great holiday!!

Great to see you and your family enjoyed your stay at Pontoon and likewise it's hard to find a spot more beautiful than Keem Bay, Achill Island - good for the soul. Look forward to hopefully having you all back in the future. Many Thanks, Paddy & Emer.

“Fantastic house in a beautiful location-we'll be back.”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

5 bedroom house with four bathrooms on the banks of Lough Cullin surrounded by rolling hills.What a beautiful location .
The house has everything needed to enjoy a relaxing family break in Mayo.
My small kids loved exploring the gardens and playing with the little dog that visited everyday to join in the fun!

“Pontoon House ticks all the right boxes.”
Reviewed June 23, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Pontoon House ticked all the right boxes. This holiday rental is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and modern. As well as the upstairs bedrooms there are 2 bedrooms downstairs which was great for my father as he is getting on in years and cannot manage stairs very well. The large front and back gardens are very well kept. The location is off the beaten track a little so excess to a car is a must. That said, the picture postcard views of mountains, rolling hills and the silvery waters of lough Cullin more than makes up for this. I would recommend Pontoon House as a great place to relax and get away from it all. Ideal if your looking for a great fishing location with the famous River Moy and loughs Conn and Cullin just down the road. (boat hire is highly recommended and is available locally) That said, Pontoon house is still close enough to the towns of Foxford, Castlebar, and Ballina if you feel like getting out and about. What more can I say, great house, great location, great craic. Tick..tick..tick!
