My family stayed at the Sunset Beach Cottage over the summer and enjoyed every minute. The house is large enough for extended family to spend quality time together yet there is still enough space to have some quiet time. The cottage is within walking distance to many local restaurants and pubs. Also within walking distance is a sandy beach where surfing and paddle boarding are available (my kids were thrilled to be able to jump of the pier with the locals), a playground, an arcade, and crazy golf. A 10 minute drive takes you into Ballina where you can stroll around town and watch the salmon fisherman try their luck. While staying at the Sunset Beach Cottage, we were within driving distance to many tourist attractions such as the Marble Arch Caves, Galway, and Ashford Castle. We were lucky enough to have cows as our neighbors across the road and horses just in the backyard. This is a fantastic location for families with children as there is plenty of activities for kids and the location is also great for adults as it in close proximity to great restaurants/pubs that feature traditional music and activities rich with the Irish culture.
