  • Wonderful Home for Three Generations of Family Members

    "My father, brother, niece, nephew, my daughter, and I stayed in this beautiful home in August, 2014. The house had everything we needed and was full of charm. Peter was very easy to work with and very helpful with all of our questions. We loved the proximity to downtown and we enjoyed a lovely walk to the Guinness Storehouse. Much of the walk was through a beautiful park. The beds and common areas were lovely. The only issue we encountered is that the proximity of the toilets to the bedrooms (with the exception of the master bedroom) is not ideal for people who need to get up in the night to visit the restroom. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others."

  • Perfect!

    "Many thanks Liz! We loved our Galway City stay. We were here for 4 days, and your apartment is perfectly located. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy all the sights. The attention to detail (flowers, welcome basket) and your recommendations for the local markets and sites were very appreciated. Thank you so much .... Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to return one day. :) Val and Ben"

  • We Left Our Hearts in Ireland!

    "We just finished a two week trip through Ireland and stayed at Stone House for one of those weeks. It did not take us long to realize that we should have stayed both weeks there. It was truly fabulous! Exactly as advertised and so much more! We were able to take numerous day trips out of Fanore, Cliffs of Mohr, walking trails in the Burren, pubs in Doolin, County Mayo, Bunratty and then come home to Stone House. Perfect location and the sunsets were beyond belief. Vasco's was fabulous, their goat cheese flat bread was wonderful but their berry sponge cake was to die for, and then there were the cappuccinos; and the fish 'n chips at O'Donoghue's Pub were great! But, take your appetite as the portions are huge! The house is a short walk to both and it was good to walk off the meals on the way back to the house! Very friendly and welcoming to everyone. Anna was a joy to talk with and a great help to tell us places to go and see. If you have any questions about the house or the area she will be your go to person. She just lives a couple of houses up the road. I know people write reviews and you don't know whether to believe them or not, but I have been renting from Home Away now for at least 12 years and have only been disappointed once and that was a trip to New York but it all got worked out. But this was probably the easiest rental I have done. The owners were wonderful to work with, fast, efficient and the wealth of information they shared before our trip was priceless. Their suggestions on tea houses, shopping, markets, pubs was invaluable and the house was truly wonderful. The grounds are beyond anything I've seen and the weather was spectacular. Everyone was talking about how great the weather was. The bottom line is, if you are thinking about a trip to Ireland, please put the Stone House on your list, you will not be disappointed!"

  • Wonderful Stay for our 10 year wedding anniversary!

    "My husband and I wanted to do something special for our 10 year anniversary so we decided to stay for a week at Ballyportry castle. We were not disappointed. Our stay in this rustic castle was exactly what we wanted. We were greeted warmly by the keeper of the castle, Tanya. She made us a delicious home cooked meal the first night of our stay, gave us a tour and was available for any questions we may have had. We spent most of our nights on the first two floors of the castle and enjoyed sitting by the fire. The view from the rooftop was magnificent. We felt as though we were taken back in time throughout our stay, though we did take advantage of the more modern amenities. Overall, our stay at the castle was nothing short of wonderful!"
