My party of four enjoyed this cottage for our five day stay near Galway. The location was perfect for site seeing, and the housing was lovely. It was easy to find and communication with the hostess was superb! She is very knowledgeable about what to do and see, even helped with directions and gift cards to certain things.
The cosy kitchen was well stocked with dishes for our own cooking needs; also complete with a gift basket and a helpful picnic basket that we used for outings. The beds were clean and nice. Showers nice and hot. There was a washing machine for clothes, but no dryer. We dried our wet shoes under the furnace. There was also a fridge but no freezer. However, our cheerful hostess froze the ice for our picnic for us and left it in the mailbox each morning. She was great. Perfect stay for family or couples. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Loved the patio and sitting room. I would recommend this cottage and stay again in the future. Thank you!
We have stayed at self-catering holiday rentals for the last 15 years with our children (now adults) and this is by far the best in terms of amenities provided and value for money. Everything you could possibly need was there, we really appreciated all the info left for us it was very helpful. We were also emailed an on-line guide to the house and the area before we arrived.
The beds were very comfortable and house has a lovely relaxing, homely feel.
The house is less than a one drive from Connemara (Kylemore Abbey, Ashford Castle. Connemara National Park, Roundstone), the Cliffs of Moher and the port for the Aran Islands. We visited all 3 and Galway city during our 3 day trip.
There is a large supermarket a 5 min drive from the house
The picnic hamper was great and we used it one of the days and had a picnic at Connemara National park
The owner Muireann was really helpful in recommending restaurants. (Powers in Oughterard is a 15min drive- highly recommended!) She had also left some complimentary groceries (bread, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, jam) The house is attached to the owner’s property but it is completely private and sound proof and has it’s own entrance
Great value for money, our stay was absolutely lovely. Highly recommended
Thank you so much. Leonard
