We had a really enjoyable stay in Carrickport Cottage. Helen & Keith could not have been more helpful and friendly. The house is extremely well laid out and furnished with plenty of pots, pans, crockery etc. There was no shortage of turf and kindling if we wanted to light the lovely big stove although the central heating was very good even without the stove being lit. Every room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and the blackout blinds a godsend when you don't want the children to wake up at the crack of dawn! The games room upstairs is perfect for both children and adults alike. The children really enjoyed the Tyre swings which were in the garden. Harvey and Tosh, their two lovely Golden Retrievers, were a big hit with all three children also as they were so friendly and playful. We had such a lovely surprise on arrival to find a bottle of wine and some nibbles in the Welcome Basket! A really nice touch which we certainly weren't expecting. We'll definitely come and stay in Carrickport Cottage again and have no hesitation in recommending it to any family, or indeed, a group of adults. Thank you Helen & Keith.
We were group of 7 friends with doggies looking for place to spend quiet and relaxing New Years eve. Carrickport Cottage appeared to be a perfect place to do so.
House is very spacious, with 3 bedrooms that are lovely fitted to pleased every guest. There is also great entertainment room on the upper floor for evening team games. Despite cold weather outside cottage was really warm and fireplace makes the house even more cosy.
Great communication with the owner before the arrival and warm welcome received. We really enjoyed our stay there.
This is our second visit as a family to this cottage in Ireland and once again it has not let us down.
We stayed for a four day trip and although the weather was not fantastic we had an excellent stay.
The communication prior to arrival and throughout the stay from the owners was excellent and accommodating - we would certainly recommend this place as it is very close to carrick on Shannon which has plenty of bars, restaurants, etc and the scenery around is fantastic !!
Overall 10/10 and would highly recommend !!
We were 2 famlies with 4 young kids (three 4 year olds and a 1 year old) staying in the cottage. The cottage was beautiful, very clean and well appointed. The owner was lovely, and really helpful. We had a wonderful few days there and were left wanting more. The surroundings are picture post card in their beauty with lovely country walks. The kids had plenty to keep them entertained with the games room up in the loft and lots to do in nearby Carrick-on-Shannon.
