I am not a big reviewer normally but this place is just too special not to get a mention and I am writing this whilst sat in the cottage with 2 days still to go.

We booked our stay last minute and travelled down to the wee village from Belfast with my husband, son and teenage niece and I think it is safe to say we have fallen in love with this place already. The pictures only give you a snippet of what you can expect and the owner of the property was friendly, thorough and very helpful.

The cottage although it has many original features also has lots of mod cons to make your trip enjoyable and comfortable. There is decent wi-fi (always a bonus with a teenager) a good sized TV with Sky, a dishwasher, a nice shower and heating that works very well. I have almost looked for a missing utensil etc and can't manage to find one so far. The attention to detail just makes this place a little more special and you can certainly tell the owner was previously a wood worker.

We spent yesterday evening enjoying a drink and BBQ on the decking and in the adorable wee summer house with a water feature running on the side lines. The BBQ is made out of an old Guinness keg, just another little touch that you can find in every nook and cranny.

The location of this cottage is another plus in my opinion, we really enjoy Galway which is only 20-30 minutes away and really the reason we picked to stay here originally. The bus stop for Galway is literally outside of the front door so travelling is easy. Yesterday we visited Kinvara which is just the most adorable little port town about 5 minutes (if that) drive away. There are lovely restaurants, cafes, shops, a supermarket and a castle to be explored but the scenery is what took me by surprise - just stunning. A stones throw away from the cottage itself there is a local pub and off license, always a bonus.

I would highly recommend this wee cottage for a romantic getaway or with a family and will certainly be visiting again if we get the chance. I feel very lucky to have stumbled across this wee gem.
