House was not what we were expecting the bed was very uncomfortable plus the pillows and duet had mould and stains on them we thought that the house was on its own but wasnt told that theres a house right nxt door 3 different families stayed there in the week we were there .would not suit someone who has chest or lung problems with the smell of damp mans needs to replace the pillows and bedding in the house I dont think the bedding had been washed as there was stains all over the sheets the sofas were filfy and ripped with throws threw over them to cover them up I took a rash allover my face and legs due to mould from the pillows and duet I didnt release how bad thet were till I stripped the bed I always give a fair review but not this time very very disappointed
This is the perfect spot if you are looking to get away to the peace and tranquillity of the West. The cottage is well maintained and Mans the owners is very welcoming and helpful. Castlebar is really only 10 minutes away so if you do need to pop into town it's only down the road!
Cottage has everything you need including lovely turf burning stove,has all modern amenities. Lake was just 5 mins walk with wheelbarrow supplied for outboard transportation. Plenty of quality roach but pike were lying out in 30 to 40ft depth and werent easy tempted. Make sure to take midge protection if evening fishing. Location was convenient for foxford,castlebar pontoon, loughs cullin and conn. Manns was very helpful and non intrusive. Set in lovely mayo scenery,lots of wildlife
Just back from a weekend here. It is a beautiful cottage and surroundings. Owner is very nice and helpful. I was sad to hear he is selling up and anybody who buys both propertys will love it especially been so close to the lake . Thanks mans for a great weekend and best of luck in your sale
I picked this place based on the old-style Irish cottage appearance, off-the-beaten path location, and yet, full mod-cons. The Trip Advisor listing also added to my comfort. The owner was welcoming, and more than willing to deal with unexpected problems that crept up. I felt very comfortable knowing that I could contact the owner with any concern at any time and get a quick response. Sad to hear that he has the cottage and the one next to it on the market. He has had long-term repeat renters (one for more than 10 years) - I met one my last two days there. I truly wish I could have stayed much longer.
