Quiet rural location, the house is set on a working farm
The location of this cozy, warm cottage is breathtaking. Surrounded by sheep and fields of green as far as your eyes can see. Its the perfect quiet and tranquil location for someone from the busy city to escape to. That being said, you will want to have a vehicle with you as it is not walking distance to town. The inside of the cottage is modern and welcoming and the owners are very responsive and helpful. I could not recommend this haven more.
We would definitely recommend this cottage. It was a great home base for our adventures. We kayaked the Connemara, went to Galway, The Cliffs of Moher and many places in between. The cottage was clean and quiet and Mary was very welcoming. There was information on tourist areas and it was great to have access to a fully equipped kitchen as well as a washing machine. The scenery was amazing and waking up to a view of rabbits and sheep was a great way to start the day. We cannot say enough about how perfect this location was...solitude in the country with towns only 5-10 minutes away. Thanks for the terrific stay.
Well equiped, comfortable and clean cottage. Well located for touring Mayo,Connamara. Landscape ever changing - Mountains,valleys & loughs.Some beautiful beaches - Old Head and near toTully Cross.
A bit remote but with Ballinrobe only 10 minutes by car and Cong 15 minutes, plenty of places to eat. The Pyramid in La Neale was exceptional - beautiful food and service. Cong has several bars/restaurants - Ashford Castle's restaurant has just been awarded the Wine Cellar Ireland 2016 award.
Just didn't have long enough to visit everything. Next time????
we enjoyed our stay in your cottage. There is everythings we need and more. It was new for us and nice to have the sheeps as the neighbors.
Moreover, it's well located to visit Connemara : beautifull landscapes.
Sincerely we hope to come back.
Just spent two weeks at this beautiful traditional Irish cottage where the owner truly has taken the time to attend your every need. I felt honored to share the memories of this family home and relax with some great books by the large fireplace. The beds were extremely comfortable and the Irish breeze in the early morning was absolutely priceless. The owner has managed to create a feeling of luxury amidst simplicity and her attention to detail has truly paid off in this lovely home.
Wir waren total begeistert von diesem schönen Cottage in dieser herrlichen, ruhigen, idyllischen Lage. Die Kühe haben uns oft beim Abspülen zugeschaut, durch das Küchenfenster. Die Heizung war gut und absolut ausreichend. Wenn man im Cottage ist, fühlt man sich zurückversetzt in eine schöne alte Zeit... Das WLAN ist gut, zur Freude der Teenager. Wir wären sehr gerne noch viele länger geblieben. In der Nähe ist übrigens ein Reitstall (in Ballyshannings), in Richtung Ballinrobe - kurz vor Ballinrobe rechts - dann etwa drei Kilometer weiter drinnen im Land. Man kann eine Stunde Reitunterricht/Ausreiten für ca. 25 Euro bekommen, sehr schön alles, sehr nette Reitlehrerin. Wir waren glücklich hier, alles hat super geklappt. Enjoy!
