Detached Character Cottage, 2 Bedooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
What makes this Cottage unique
Countryside Setting all inclusive of oil and electricity
Quiet, comfortable, great owner
We stayed for 2 weeks in "Mickey's Cottage." Good features include comfortable beds, lots of towels, convenient location (not far to Gort), a quiet road with only one near neighbor, and a very friendly and helpful owner who lives nearby. (In truth, it's more of a 3-star house with a 5-star owner.) Parking is on the property, through a narrow gate. There is lots of music in several pubs in Kinvarra, and we were made welcome in sessions. The price was very reasonable, especially as it included electricity and heating oil.
The negatives are ones that may not be problems to everyone. One of the main reasons we do self-catering is to be able to eat at least some of our meals at home, (and the food in Irish grocery stores has become much better in recent years). It was not as easy to cook here as in some other places we've stayed. The kitchen is very small and somewhat erratically equipped. We think it needs a second frying pan and an electric coffee maker. We left (intentionally) several sharp knives and a small baking pan for the oven. There are lots of bowls and some measuring equipment, and there are pots in several sizes. The refrigerator has a very small freezer whose inside door does not close well and frosts up quickly. There is a flat-screen tv, but it gets a limited number of channels -- only RTE. The biggest issue for us was the lack of wi-fi in the house. Still, we enjoyed our stay very much and would consider renting this house again.
Loved this cottage! It was clean, well-equipped and had a great location for exploring the western part of Ireland. The gas fireplace was nice to have to help with the chilly mornings. Kinvarra, a 5 minute drive, was very nice. We really enjoyed the banquet at Dungaire Castle in town also. The only reason we gave this property a 4 instead of a 5 was the bed. If you are tall, over 6 feet, which my husband is, you won't quite fit. He did not sleep well, but otherwise highly recommended!
A little dated but exactly what we were looking for.
Great location but a little dated. It's small but was great for our visit. Priced right for what it is.
Einfache Unterkunft, dem Preis angemessen
Das kleine Cottage-Häuschen ist auf das Wesentlichste reduziert, eine einfache aber gemütliche Ausstattung. Die Küche ist klein aber gut ausgestattet, alles war sauber und schön hergerichtet. Die Besitzerin des Cottage und die Nachbarn waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Leider ist das Cottage relativ weit außerhalb von Kinvarra, man könnte vielleicht die paar Kilometer laufen, aber da es keine Bürgersteige und keinen richtigen Seitenstreifen an der Straße Richtung Ortskern gibt, sollte man lieber das (Miet-)Auto nehmen.
Very nice and well located cottage
My mum and I spent 5 days at the cottage in June 2018 and we had a very nice time. The cottage is charming and was perfect for two people. As the weather was nice, it was lovely to be able to spend time and eat in the garden. The cottage is located in a quiet area a few minutes by car from Kinvarra. It is the perfect location for someone who wants to visit the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands and the Connemara. Thanks a lot for the very warm welcome!
Eigentlich ganz gut, nur ein bisschen zu dunkel
Die Lage zwei Kilometer außerhalb vom Örtchen Kinvarra ist gut, Galway nur eine halbe Stunde entfernt. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und man kann im Garten essen. Manche Sachen sind sehr schön in der Wohnung, wie etwa ein liebevoll restaurierter und dekorierter Schrank, schöne Bettwäsche. Die Küche weist deutliche Gebrauchsspuren auf, ist aber gut ausgestattet. Insgesamt könnte es ein bisschen sauberer sein - und vor allem heller, denn im Wohnzimmer ist es schon ziemlich düster, da es nur zwei Fenster, von denen eines durch Sträucher verschattet wird.
Luxus gibt's hier nicht, dafür ein gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis in guter Lage.
