Detached House, 3 Bedooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
What makes this Cottage unique
Great base - Ideal for touring West of Ireland
Nice house, nice setting, very dated and not at all comfortable
Family of six stayed April 2019 two adults four children.
Could be a nice house, but needs an overhaul to bring it up to modern standards.
Very large farm house with three good size bedrooms. Beds need to be replaced however as they are likely decades old and you can feel every spring, with no support, it was like sleeping on a poor sofa bed, or cot bed.
House not lived in and heat not on, so very damp and musty throughout. Turned the heating on to dry house out but that meant I had to pay extra on departure because you are on the hook for the electric and oil that you have used whilst staying there, this gets calculated at the end of the stay.
Not a massive deal for me personally, although it is somewhat useful in todays world, especially when travelling to be able look things up and plan your holiday was the lack of internet in the house. It does not have any, this would cost the owner too mush per month so that wasn't happening.
Lovely owner, feel bad writing a negative review, but it was very disappointing.
We also had an issue with the main bathroom, which made it unusable for the duration of our stay. Hopefully that will be remedied as the owner was informed of that before we left, so no need to expand on it, but that could also be a result of the house not really being used very often.
I would not use the accommodation again and would not recommend it to anyone.
I am sorry to read your review and am disappointed that you did not care to mention these things to me during your stay. The house is not modern and is advertised as a “period” home so I am sorry if you expected otherwise. The house was heated through the winter and for your arrival – it was 19 degrees on the day of your arrival so it should not have been cold. The oil and electricity are advertised as being by meter read which is payable so again, I am sorry if you misunderstood. Internet coverage is not something that is readily available in this area due to the rural location however you can get good signal on your mobile to use the data on your phone. The bathroom issue was addressed and rectified the day after your departure as you didn’t inform me until the evening before you were due to leave. I am sorry if you would not wish to stay here again. I have had many happy visitors over the years but I appreciate the points you made.
Wonderful home! Wonderful caretakers!
I don't even know where to begin. This house was spacious, well-equipped, clean, and it's views were beautiful. The caretakers live right up the slip road, so were available at a moment's notice (not that we needed them because everything was explained clearly upon arrival). This house is right off the main road, so it has easy access to all the local towns. I definitely recommend this house, especially if you are traveling with a group.
