“Perfect get-away”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

So many things to do, places to go (you will need a car), it needs more than a week.
Mary and Brian were so helpful, they even pointed out where "Father Ted's" house was. Thank you for the time and help.
Cottage is clean and comfortable, even when it rains - it is Ireland after all! :)
Thanks to Mary for the welcome soda bread, butter and marmalade. Delicious.
Corofin (or Corrofin as it is signposted) has shops and places to eat.
Dogs, did I mention dogs? Friendly and gentle, a pleasure to be around.
The three of us (wife and daughter) had a great week and look forward to returning to Ireland when we can.

“My dreams of a beautiful Ireland vacation became a reality!”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage sat on a lake with gorgeous views and close to the village, Corofin. Hosts Mary and Brian were wonderful and helpful. We were welcomed to explore their farm. My children loved playing with their son and dog, Frodo! Thank you for a wonderful, magical Ireland vacation!

“What a hidden gem!”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a week at the end of March / beg April 2016 - myself, my wife and 2 daughters - aged 9 & 11.

The first thing to say is that the views are absolutely stunning (the photos don't do it justice) - looking out across the lake and the surrounding hills, with barely another property in sight is wonderful. The owners have a rowing boat that they are more than happy for guests to use on the lake. We took it out for a morning and had a great time, mooring on the far side to explore an interesting ruined fort.

It is a great location for exploring the Burren - the cliffs of Moher and a climb up the imposing Mullaghmore being a couple of our favourites, both of them only a short distance away.

The accommodation itself was perfect - comfortable and warm, with a roaring log fire every evening for an added touch of cosy-ness!

And finally - the owners themselves. Mary & Brian are a truly delightful couple, friendly and helpful, with lots of good advice about places to go, and things to see and do. Brian (who is a beef farmer) even showed our girls one of the calves that he was rearing back to health following a dislocated knee!

A wonderful week, and a delightful place to stay!
