“Really enjoyed our stay at Mo Dachaidh”

Mo Dachaidh was perfect for my wife and I for our three night stay on Islay (note: there is room enough for 3 couples). Clean, spacious, nice kitchen, comfortable bed, right in town (Bowmore). We would have liked to have stayed longer -- for everything Islay has to offer. No complaints. We highly recommend Mo Dachaidh.

“Great holiday on Islay”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The house was clean and tidy when we arrived. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bedrooms were great. It was a great place for up to six people to spend a holiday with ample space for cooking and spending the evenings indoor if the weather dictates. It was ideally placed in the middle of Islay's attractions with Caol Ila distillery and Rhuvaal lighthouse in the north, Machir bay to the west and Port Ellen and the great distilleries in the south all within a short drive. There was a little issue with regards to a cleaning fee but it was well handled and I would still recommend this house in this location for anyone visiting Islay.
