This thatched house is a dream come true. This is an authentic Irish cottage but also has modern amenities. It is ideally situated in the heart of Spiddal village. Carmel is the perfect host with delicious homemade treats on arrival. On leaving we decided to book immediately for next year! :)

Absolutely loved our time at the cottage! The place was spotless. Beds comfortable.Everything that you wanted was there. Carmel's apple pie and bread was wonderful! They were a lovely couple and so friendly. We loved walking by the sea/harbour every morning! We will be back!
