“Quaint and Charming”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We loved this traditional Irish cottage with a long family history. Four adults shared it for 4 days and all were very comfortable and thought its location was ideal - near food markets, church, library with internet, good Pubs with music, and a lovely promenade along the waterfront. Hosts Carmel, Martin, Cathal and Uncle Brendan are very gracious as well.

“A Lovely &[--] Cozy Cottage - A Picture Perfect Home Away From Home”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifully and lovingly renovated thatched cottage. We found it to be clean, charming and comfortable. That we were also greeted with homemade baked goods (that were absolutely delicious!) made us feel right at home. We traveled with our 1 year old and our stay went ever so smooth as we were provided a highchair/booster seat, a baby gate for the staircase, and a travel cot. Plus the front yard is gated, so he could safely explore the picturesque exterior. We also loved the location and being able to walk to the sea and shopping at the local farmer's market were some of the highlights. Highly recommend.

“Picturesque cottage in a fantastic location”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The main advantage of this cottage is that it combines a traditional feel with a location slap bang in the village close to all the modern amenities. 2 Nr. Spar shops within 100m, Italian pizzeria next door, other restaurants/pubs within 200m. Ceardlann craft centre is 200m away directly across the road from the main village beach. Because we had a baby, it suited us to travel by car, but in future we would hope to lock up the car on Day 1 & comfortably do everything on foot.

Galway city is an essential fall back for the inevitable rainy days when indoor activity is required & we were able to reach a kids adventure centre in Salthill within 25 minutes.

Found a great kids playground overlooking the sea back in Inverin (3km).

The cottage is compact inside as you would expect. The heating system is up to ski-chalet standards, we sweltered the first few nights until we got the hang of it (we could pretend to ourselves we were on a sun hol). We got lucky with the weather so all told, a great hol. Plus it's "the only thatched cottage in the village"..
