  • 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!"

  • Everything we expected!!

    "Thank you so much for opening this lovely property up and sharing it with renters such as myself! My friends and I just got back from our first trip to Ireland and we could not have been happier with our stay in Goleen. The house was just as the other reviews states: WONDERFUL! We have been looking forward to this visit to the lighthouse for so long and we were not disappointed. Angelique was very helpful with everything we needed. Everything about the property was so peaceful and we felt at home immediately. I personally enjoyed waking up before anyone else and enjoying a cup of tea while looking out over the beautiful ocean. It was just what this busy girl needed in a vacation away with her buddies and I cannot thank you enough! I plan on visiting Ireland again and I would stay at your lovely lighthouse again in a heartbeat! Thanks again!"

  • Lovely home!

    "The house is much larger than the pictures appear but just as marvelous! The rooms are beautiful and the living areas are spacious and comfy. There are 2 king beds and 2 double beds. There is one large sofa to sleep on but it is in two pieces and you have to keep pushing it back together. The other sofas are loveseats. Once you get acclimated the house is perfect. The instructions for the appliances could be clearer but through trial and error we figured out which switches turned the cooker, ect. The washer works fairly well. It's small and in an outside building. There were no instructions on where to find the key but my detective husband finally found it. The skylights all open with a pole and can also have the shades pulled down so the early sun doesn't wake you. This was awesome! It could use a DVD player and some movies because the TV reception is very poor. Also I would have liked a newer coffee maker. We couldn't figure out how to use the old fashioned one. Overall I would say it's perfect for two couples and 2 extra people. Unless small children want to sleep together in the 2 extra rooms. It took us about 25 minutes to get to Carrick-on-suir. Also, there are stairs to all bedrooms so a disabled person would need to know that ahead of time."

  • Celebration of friendship and anniversary a

    "My husband and I shared this beautiful cottage overlooking Ventry Bay with friends of mine from my hometown of Alton,Il. We spent 2 glorious weeks here! You wake up to the sound of cows and sheep when you walk outside. We rented a car and took many hikes and day trips. It is close to Dingle with great shopping and restaurants.The weather was gorgeous. I got a tan! The cottage has three bedrooms, nice sized kitchen and living area.We went to Garvey's Supervalue and found a great selection of food for breakfast and snacks for our day hikes. I would highly recommend this cottage! It looks just the pictures!!"
