  • Girls Trip :)

    "My friend and I take a girls trip every year and Ireland was our choice this time. We wanted to stay somewhere that would give us the small town feel and really get a sense of Irish living, but we also wanted to be close enough to all the wonderful sights/things Ireland has to offer :) this place was perfect! We stayed for one week and the weather was amazing, we are from Arizona (USA) so it was nice to escape the heat in July. The town house is super adorable and has everything you need. Pam is very helpful and wonderful, she gave us all the information we needed to make our first international trip as easy as possible :) While we were there we toured many castles and explored many towns that are a very close commute. We used all forms of transportation bus, taxi, train, etc. Balbriggan is a great place for those who want a slower paced relaxing vacation. But if you want to travel to the fast paced city it is available with a short commute via public transportation. We also traveled north to Belfast by train and did a tour at the titanic museum, which was very cool and I highly recommend. It did take up one whole day with travel time and the tour itself, but it was well worth it! There are so many other things we would love to have seen/done but you definitely need more then one week to accomplish all the great things Ireland has to offer. Hopefully we will get to go back to Ireland someday, and if we do then we will probably stay in Balbriggan again or close to it because we loved the area so much! Thank you Pam for all your help, your place in Balbriggan is an adorable, convenient, comfortable home away from home :) we loved everything about it!"

  • Glorious location, lovely house

    "We enjoyed four days here in June. Kevin was so proactive in sending us information about the property and things to do in the area. The house is stunning, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We loved the views and the glorious sunshine! We were very lucky with the weather, but would imagine that this would be a gorgeous place to stay even in the rain!"

  • Just perfect to enjoy the Ring of Kerry!

    "House is much better than what it looks from the photos. Location is just perfect if you rather have spectacular views when you wake up in the morning than being at the heart of some town. Everything you can possibly need for an amazing Ring of Kerry experience is included in this house, including the owner's helpful and lovelyness, maps for treks, TV for a quiet evening and a warm comfortable bed to rest after hours of hiking. House is super warm and cosy. I just got back home but can't wait to go back there."

  • Un merveilleux moment hors du temps

    "Nous avons séjourné aux Old Manor Ballynahinch entre Noël et le Jour de l'An. Le site est exceptionnel, la vue sur le lac un enchantement de tous les instants et constitue un parfait camp de base pour découvrir cette incroyable région du Conemara.. Les logements sont confortables, chaleureux et très fonctionnels, avec une mention spéciale pour le feu de tourbe dans la cheminée. L'accueil est parfait. Nous ne manquerons pas de revenir dans ce merveilleux endroit hors du temps."
