A Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven spent a week at Gentian Cottage in June and enjoyed every minute

we were there. The house itself is very comfortable, as well as beautiful. I especially like

the purple fireplace, and we took wonderful pictures of everyone standing in front of it.

Ann, the owner, is a most gracious hostess and can't do enough for you. She took us

on a private tour of the family-owned castle near Gentian Cottage and it was a wonderful

experience. The views from the cottage of the surrounding areas and the ocean are

breathtaking. We were all sad to leave and are hoping to be able to return. Thank you Ann

and Colin for your warm hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here and it was absolutely fabulous, everything you could ask for in a home, very well equipped, form the welcome pack on arrival to the breath-taking views of the Ocean, Aran Island and those amazing sunsets are not to be missed. The owners are always at hand to ask questions and nothing is a problem, they surely have thought of everything. Cant wait to return have already booked my return visit. Couldn't recommend this property enough .... go ahead and book you will not be disappointed.

Great home, beautiful view, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and location of this home were everything that we needed for our group of 7 adults. The furnishings and amenities make this home very comfortable and the views can't be beat. The owner, Ann, was easy to work with and she provided excellent communication. Her friendliness and humor are infectious. We had an excellent time and only wished we could have stayed longer!

Gentian House was the perfect place to spend Easter with my Grandchildren and extended family. Ann was a wonderful hostess; even provided chocolate eggs for an Easter egg hunt!

Very nice stay! Very large cottage near Cliffs Of Moher and Burren. The owner, Ann, so nice and very helpful! This cottage is located perfectly to enjoy various local things, and short distance to Galway and Limerick. We had a wonderful stay and again appreciate the wonderful hospitality!!!
