Not long back from another visit to the beautiful Pontoon House. Relaxation starts from arrival to the moment you reluctantly depart.
The house is set in such a magnificent location with breathtaking views across the Mayo countryside. Our children have loved visiting the place since being infants, and now teenagers still love going back to Pontoon House. This year we were absolutely amazed to find they didn't touch their phones for the first couple of days, even though there is now Wifi in the house!
I would highly recommend Pontoon House to anybody looking for a great place to stay in Co Mayo. It has everything you could wish for (and more) and sets the scene for exploring new places in the area and revisiting some of the most amazing places in this beautiful part of the world. If only we were all back there now...
We spent the month of July 2018 in Pontoon House & it was wonderful! The house is beautifully finished, very comfortable and in an idyllic location. A real ‘home away from home’. My three kids adored the garden, rocks for climbing, the nearby lake for swimming and all the toys/ games in the house. Paddy was a really great host and if we needed anything he was just a phonecall away. We had everything we needed and it was just a fabulous ‘easy’ holiday with no complications! Thank you so much Paddy, we loved it and we would love to return ASAP!
Set in scenic Mayo with great views of the mountains and lakes.
Great base for visiting Pontoon, Enniscrone, KIllala and the Reek.
Fantastic home from home for the young and old alike!
would highly recommend this house to family and friends.
Definitely go back again.
Pontoon House is a beautifully-designed home in an equally beautiful location. The house was perfect for our group of 8 adults, and we had a bedroom to spare! The open-plan living space is ideal for a group gathering and we were happy to host our locally-based family for a New Year's Eve celebration. The kitchen is well-appointed and had everything we needed to cater to a big group. We also loved the open fire and appreciated the vast amount of fuel available for our use. We look forward to returning to this lovely home again in the future! Thanks for a wonderful stay.
What a lovely home. You won't go wrong starting at the Pontoon House. Spotless, modern, roomy with every household convenience needed. We were three generations of the same family ranging in age fro 13 to 85. We did a lot of exploring but still made time for meals at home. We had rain a few days but had plenty to do with games we found in the house like Scrabble, and Monopoly and for the teens, a POOL TABLE in the loft!!!! We also watched several of the movies found next to a DVD player.
Opening up the home and shutting down when we left was a breeze with the step by step instructions emailed to us prior to our trip by Paddy! An added bonus was the washer and dryer in the home which allowed us to pack light and only have carry on luggage for our flight from the USA. This made arrival, and immigration a breeze.
I recommend the Pontoon House to all. I truly thank Paddy for making this home available. We hope to return soon.
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.
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
