A cosy, spacious and lovely house
We really enjoyed our stay. The house is spacious and cosy and well equipped. Michael was always very helpful and answered all our questions very quickly and gave nice recommendations. The only thing we would have liked to be better is the description of how to find the house. We drove in the dark and it was difficult to follow the description and unfortunately we didn't have the most accurate navigation system either. However, we really enjoyed our stay! Thank you.
First I want to say, this is a beautiful home in the mountains of central Ireland. Ideally located to travel all over the country. The grounds, the gardens,the wee "hobbit House", the tree house and the little creek are all very fun for kids to explore. But, because we do have children I feel the need to warn everyone that there are bats in this house. We discovered this the first night when our 6 year old son brought a toilet roll to us that had a bat inside. It was screeching loudly and flew out of the toilet roll so then we had to trap it and get it outside which took about an hour. Our last morning there we were eating breakfast when all of a sudden a bat swooped down to the table. Again, we had to trap it and get it outside.
When we first arrived at the house I noticed a lot of animal droppings on the windowsill. Being in the country, I figured it was mouse droppings. But now I am convinced it is bat droppings. There is one window screen that is covered in what I now know is bat droppings.
We contacted the owner the first night about the bat and his response was, "Thank you for your message. The house is in the heart of the Slieve Bloom Conservation area. One of the features of this is that we are surrounded by wildlife.. Pipistrel bats are rare in Ireland and are a protected species here. In that respect we are lucky that they sometimes visit the house and garden over the summer months and can fly in through an open window. Especially at night. I believe they are most active between dusk and dawn." We researched the pipistrel bat and see no evidence of it being protected as it is a very common bat. Also, we did not leave windows open. The owner needs to do some serious cleaning in his attic because this house is not safe for children.
Cosy relaxing break
This house was very charming. We stayed here 3 days to relax and 4 days on business. The grounds were not what they once were but still had lots of nooks and crannies to explore. We enjoyed the peace and quiet but also plenty to do in the area. Our only problem was not being able to time the heating/ hot water system which only mattered on our business days when we were out early and back late. Michael was in touch by phone and very helpful. We're already looking forward to our next stay.
