"We rented this beautiful home for 10 days------ and felt at home from day one. The home and surrounding landscape are more beautiful than the pictures on-line. Martin and Tricia are so easy to work with. They gave us some wonderful ideas on what to see and how to get around Ireland. The welcome basket of breakfast food was much appreciated after a long day of traveling. From this home we were able to travel to Galway, Dublin, and as far as Kinsale.We loved the area and views right from the home. Looking out on the Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands, walking around the area with the ocean, animals and greenry, the pubs in Doolin each night with great food and traditional Irish music, all made for a wonderful vacation destination. Can't wait to return to Ireland and Creig's Cottage one day!"

"Sean and Louise will make you feel like family on your stay. The property is amazing, a beautiful house with a great outdoor seating and leisure area. For the morning walkers, a great road to the lake is a little under a mile walk. Very quit, but only 1/4 mile off the highway. We were on a 10 day holiday and got lucky enough to stay here our last 3 days. Property is close enough for a day trip into Dublin, Galway City or Limerick. If that's not on your agenda, just head to Scariff, go to the meat market and grab some meat to grill on the back porch and enjoy the gorgeous back yard. (Lamb kabobs are a must).
Mountshannon is on Lake Derg, which has the Holy Island to visit. We also did some checking and you can rent a boat to sight see the lake. I was told by locals that the Derg is the second biggest lake in the country.
I have stayed at many VBRO properties and this one is a A++++++++++ in my book.
Thank you Sean and Louise for the stay!!!"

"This cottage was absolutely wonderful for our family of 6. There was plenty of space (there was even an extra bedroom we didn't use). It had everything we needed - a great kitchen, SPECTACULAR views, even a massage chair in the sun room! You can see the sea from your backyard, along with a beautiful field of flowers, and there are some ruins just next door. The owners were so helpful and came over whenever we had questions or needed any help. Doolin is great little town and has the best live music in the country! We were so happy with our decision to stay here and would do it again in a heartbeat! Hopefully we'll be back one day!"

"We were unable to stay at Ballyportry Castle as it was already booked, but the owner was so helpful, kind and prompt in her replies that I wanted to give the castle a positive review for customer service. I'm sure the owner gives the same amount of care to her castle as she does her customers, which would make it a truly wonderful place to stay!"
