  • Great place for families

    "We stayed for a week and had a great time. We were two families with small children and they loved that everything was more or less on one level. They could run around the garden which goes around the house and also the kitchen and living room which was on the same level. Our pram and car seats which we had brought was left behind in London by British Airways so we had to borrow other ones in Dublin. They finally arrived two days later and the agreement with BA was for the driver to take the borrowed car seats back to Dublin. At that time we were an hour's drive away with one child asleep. The owner of the cottage was away on a wedding but still talked to driver on our behalf and instructed them to deliver our luggage and agreed for them to pick up the seats we had borrowed later. This was fantastic service and made everything much easier for us. We would easily return to this cottage due to location and quality and with the level of service from the owner this place is highly recommended."

  • Just perfect - we loved Carrowholly Cottage

    "Carrowholly Cottage is absolutely wonderful. The surrounding is really beautiful, peaceful and quiet, exactly the way you would imagine Ireland. We loved the views on Croagh Patrick, the herds of cows and the whole atmosphere around. The Cottage is well equipped and the interior is very cosy. The kitchen is fully equipped, you will find just anything you could think of. There’s plenty of room and the beds are really comfortable. There’s an oven in the living room. It was so lovely to sit on the fireplace and have a Guinness or two in the evenings. You can reach Westport by car within 10 minutes. Westport offers a whole lot of Pubs and Restaurants (we can recommend “SAGE RESTAURANT”, lovely food of perfect quality). Connemara isn’t far away, you should definitely arrange enough time to visit this grotesque landscape which is so wonderfully charming. Another trip advice which was given to us by Ray, the house manager, is Achill Island. You must not miss to visit this island, you can reach it by car. It offers stunning views, sometimes we felt like being in Tahiti because of the greenish-blue beaches and the green hills around. You would be sorry for not going there. We are very thankful for Ray’s advice, he was so right when he told us that Achill Island is a “must-see”. We will definitely come back to Carrowholly Cottage, we have recommended it to family and friends already. Ray and Jackie – thanks for the engaging correspondence, the caring and warm-hearted way you welcomed us. I know my English is not perfect at all but I think you can guess from all the fluffy words in my review that we had a most memorable stay at Carrowholly Cottage. Thanks for having us!"

  • Ein echtes "Heim in der Ferne"

    "Dieses Ferienhaus können wir wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Wir haben alles genau so vorgefunden wie auf den Fotos zu sehen ist (bis auf das Pferd;) ), und noch mehr. Die Zimmer sind sehr geräumig. Es gibt noch einen Garten drum herum, eine schöne große Terasse mit Grill, und von den oberen Fenstern sieht man aufs Meer. Die Lage ist auf der Karte genau angegeben, das Haus liegt gleich neben dem Pfeil. Bis zum Strand können es höchstens 500m sein. Es ist sehr ruhig, da ziemlich abgelegen (Navi empfohlen). Im Haus wartet eine ganze Kiste mit Ausflugstipps und Tourvorschlägen, besser als der mitgebrachte Reiseführer. Man merkt, dass dieses kein reines Vermiet-Objekt ist. Es wird hauptsächlich von der Familie genutzt, deshalb ist wirklich alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Es ist nicht nur sauber und gepflegt, sondern auch sehr gemütlich. Man fühlt sich sofort zu Hause. Das liegt natürlich auch an den sehr herzlichen Gastgebern, danke Eithne! Hierher kommt man nicht als Kunde, sondern als Freunde..."
