“Really peaceful place”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A lovely cozy house in the hills of Connemara, and a really nice helpful owner. It's a perfect spot for a nice get away.

We spent a few days in this house and were happily stayed longer. The cottage was nicely furnished and located in a quiet area.

“Wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

First time in Ireland so glad we chose a perfect location and cottage to stay in.
Connemara area is outstandingly beautiful.
Cottage was just right for my husband and I. Had everything we needed for our holiday and owners live close by so if you have a problem they are there to help you. Welcome visit from Helen (owner) on day of arrival - thankyou.
Just wished the weather had been better all week - started off raining a few days but then brightened up afterwards.
Visitors guide in the cottage of places of interest to see. Peacock Hotel is not too far away from the cottage and they do lovely food and have a gift shop which is great for pressies to take back home. Had a wonderful meal in Padraicins Restaurant/Pub in Spiddall - they do a lovely clam chowder.
Pestered with midges a couple of days outside the cottage but the local store stock midge spray if you forget your own.
Will definitely be returning to Ireland for another wonderful holiday.
Bed upstairs was so comfy and quilt so warm we didn't want to get up in the mornings!

“secluded and quiet”
Reviewed 18 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Very quiet area with good hiking. Beautiful cottage with plenty of room. Not any contact with local people. Would have been nice to have met the owners and get a better understanding on the heating system. Very slow and spotty WiFi but not really important to us. Very good manual with instructions and suggestions.

“A great stay in the Maum Valley”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

A perfect place to disconnect and enjoy all of the Connemara valley. My wife, 2 year old son, and I spent 3 nights here and it was exactly what we were looking for. Our host Helen, gave us great directions, provided us with Veggies and Jam and was helpful for our stay. The place is excellent. Nestled on a sheep farm it gave us the perfect getaway to peace and quiet we were looking for. The place itself was clean, had a ton of charm, and very spacious. Perfect location to Kylemore Abbey, Connemara National Park, 45 minutes to Galway, and Sky Loop.
