“Fantastic house, but some annoying problems”

Initially our reaction to Cnoc Suain was, WOW!!
What a beautiful looking property, huge rooms, very well equipped, fantastic views; what more could you ask for! 10 of us stayed here for one week early in October. We received a very warm welcome from Ciaran, the owner of the property, and he showed us around and took a small deposit from us. The rental price was excellent value for money, £380 split 10 ways, it really was a no brainer. Although we were happy with the house overall we did have a few little issues with it.
2 bedrooms have en suites, 2 bedrooms have joint access to another bathroom, but the 5th bedroom does not have an en suite or dedicated bathroom. There is a toilet and hand basin downstairs, but the 5th bedroom users have to share the en suites in order to have a shower. May seem like a small issue, but it can be annoying trying to coordinate bathroom use.
Also you do not have access to hot water 24 hours. The boiler works for a few hours in the morning and the same at night. I understand that oil prices in Ireland are very high, but I don't feel that it's appropriate for a luxury holiday home to severely restrict the times a person can have a hot shower.
We didn't find the oven to be very good at all. It didn't get up to temperature even when set to maximum.
Finally, there is a little sound proofing issue. Many of the internal walls seem to be stud and these, therefore, let almost all sound through. So despite being a HUGE house, you lacked privacy as you could hear everything that was going on.
Overall, despite the problems, I would whole heartedly recommend staying here. The house is beautiful, very well equipped and in a fantastic location. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway break where you can let go of stress and anxiety then I can think of no better place.
Thank you Ciaran and Mary for a fantastic week, and I hope that you have continued success with Cnoc Suain.

We hired this top class house over the xmas 2013 and had a great time.On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the very helpful caretaker named Mary. The house is very modern and well equipped with every thing we needed for our stay. The area is ideal for sightseeing and walkers and the nearest pub is a 10 minute drive. Local shops can be found in Belmullet a twenty minute drive with the town of Ballina a 50 minute drive. The surrounding area has great views plus long beach walks.

“A little bit of paradise!”

We stayed here in Cnoc Suain in November. The house is beautiful, so modern, clean and spacious. The views were breathtaking & I can only imagine what it would be like in the summer months. The house was warm and snug with the underfloor heating and the open fire. The house was very well equipped with dishes, glasses, baking trays etc - it literally had everything you needed and more! Mary Ellen was great with maps and local information on where to eat and drink. I cannot recommend this house enough & I can’t wait to return again soon.
