“Beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This house is beautiful, it is spotless clean, has everything you could need for all age groups. It is in a great setting with wonderful views all around. It is close to all the main towns in Mayo, and the owners were great.
We are all hoping to go back next year.
thank you so much Paddy and Eimer.

“Perfect Homebase for a visit to County Mayo”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I just finished a week at Pontoon House with my daughters and sister. We could not have asked for any better place from which to explore County Mayo. The house is wonderfully spacious and well equipped, and the location overlooking Lough Cullen is a bit of heaven. The house exceeded our expectations for features, cleanliness, and an experience of rural Ireland. Our host, Paddy, provided excellent recommendations every day for dining, tours, and things to do. The location is central to County Mayo, so it is easy to explore the entire County.

The well-equipped kitchen served our needs perfectly. The four baths and five comfortable bedrooms make it a great place for family and relatives. The setting nestled among lichen covered boulders and shrubs is beautiful. I particularly liked the near constant music from the songbirds.

Hi Brian & Therese,

Thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of Pontoon House, your review is all the more valuable as you are so familiar with this lovely unspoilt area of Co. Mayo. We look forward to your return visit in 2014.
