We absolutely loved our stay at Lals Thatched Cottage. The location was incredibly convenient. We could easily walk to the craft village and cafe there, to get coffee at the stand just a few doors down, order pizza just a few doors in the other direction, or walk to the beach and also to the pubs in town. The cottage has a bedroom on the first floor which was nice for my older parents, and two cute rooms upstairs. The main room is cozy and we sat around the table there every night of our stay. The driveway makes parking easy and my young daughter enjoyed having the front garden to play in. If we are lucky enough to come back to Spiddal, this is where we would stay again without question.

We had the best time in Lals cottage! Right beside the beach and the village. The cottage was spotless and Carmel was a great host. The kids loved the fairy cakes on arrival. Have booked to go again this year!

Very nice thatched cottage as the tourists outside testify to. A good base for the local beaches, pubs, shop and restaurants. You should do yourself a favour and try the Italian takeaway next door. Carmel is a very helpful and considerate owner and we enjoyed the scones on offer on our arrival. All household necessities were there and you did not need to go out and buy your own stuff. Will definitely hire again if ever in the neighbourhood. Thanks again Carmel.

Tigh Lal Cottage has everything a family could want. Secure garden for younger children. Three beaches within 5 mins walk and very clean. Close to shops and pubs. Very warm welcome on arrival with brack and scones from Carmel and Martin. Would highly recommend Tigh Lal Cottage to anyone as it is also a great base for all the tourist attractions around. We'll be back again. Thanks for a great holiday Carmel and Martin.

Spiddal is all that we hoped it would be and the cottage was just perfect too. Carmel and Martin could not have been more helpful. We arrived very late and Carmel was waiting patiently for us and took the time to make us welcome and make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was spotless and comfortable with plenty of space to sit outside in the glorious Connemara sunshine - we were much luckier than the forecast predicted. I'm slightly reticent about writing such a rave review - it only means more of you will be competing with me when I try to book a return trip!

We had a week long holiday at this beautiful cottage at the beginning of June. What a wonderful time we had, the location was fab, short walk to the beaches, near the pubs and pizzeria and the front garden was a dream especially as it was fully enclosed so very safe as we were there with our 18 month old, 3 year old and 5 year old. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and we all loved the buns and scones when we arrived. We were blessed with good weather but the combination of sunshine, location and this gorgeous cottage made it a holiday to remember for years to come. Thanks Carmel and family, we will be back!
