“Good”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in June the house was lovely, clean and had all that we needed. My only concern was that we had to pay for our electricity and oil on top of the €682 we paid for the week. At the end of the holiday we were charged €75 for oil and €30 for electricity. The heating was set for one hour in morning and one hour in evening. I feel we were ripped off as we took the owners brother word at the start of the week on what the meter readings were. Just a heads up don't take people word on meter readings check yourself what the meter reads at the start of your holiday and at the end. You can't trust people to be honest which is sad.

“A lovely cottage in an amazing landscape”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Englmer Cottage was our lovely home for a three day trip to the Achill Island. The house itself was absolutely beautiful and clean. The backyard was also gorgeous including the little river running through. There was no wish left to be desired: big kitchen, various utensils to cook and bake, open fireplace, big beds, clean bathrooms and an absolutely amazing view!
Location: it is very easy and fast to reach once entered the Island (10 min approx). The property itself offered parking spots and a huge backyard as well as a terrace. On the Achill Island, there are also a lot of adventurous things to do. There is more information about the Island provided in the house via different leaflets.
We all highly recommend this house and would definitely come back whenever possible.

“Excellent Central Location for Achill Island Adventures”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

It was the first time we'd stayed in Bunnacurry as previously we'd tended to stay in Keel, but I have to say that we'll be back as the cottage gives you an excellent central location from which to explore the entire island.

You are less than ten minutes drive from Keel, Silver Stand, Golden Strand and Achill Sound but also the Bullsmouth and Lavelle's shop are less than 5 minutes drive away too.

The house is well laid out with plenty of room for a family group or even a large group of friends. The rooms are all cosy and the house is well maintained by the owners whose family live close by in case you need to ask any question about the area or any help in general.

The automatic gate was great as it meant you had peace of mind when any younger children were outside playing and the driveway is large enough for scooters and bikes.

“Comfortable house, great location and views”

Large comfortable house made stay on Achill very enjoyable. Two separate sitting rooms great when holidaying with teenagers! Welcome basket was very welcome after a long drive from Cork. Having all tourist information available in the house was great as saved time on trips to local tourist office. Also made good use of the printed information on walking routes around Achill.

“A home away from home”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

To stay in this house is like being at home but the furniture is slightly different! Everything was thought of.
We arrived on a cold February afternoon and the fire was lit and the lights were on - it was just so welcoming.
Rob and Karen had thought of everything - including a list of the activities on the island that week so that we wouldn't have to be cooped up.
We saw all of the island - ticking off all the things in our guide book (and some not included in it!) and returned each day to the comfort of the cottage.
There were five of us and the double ensuite downstairs suited my elderly in-laws perfectly.
The only drawback was that we had to leave :( but we will be back.
The cottage is a little off the main road but in saying that the directions given got us safely there with no trouble.
