Traveling as a family of 6 adults we needed a place with plenty of room. I found this listing on HomeAway and it looked great but there were no reviews. I messaged the owner and got a quick reply from Aine. They had only recently listed on HomeAway, but she offered to send me reviews from other sites they list on. The reviews were positive so we made a reservation. When we arrived at the house, Magda greeted us and explained everything we needed to know. The house was even better than the pictures. It was clean and the kitchen was well supplied with utensils and kitchen ware. We had lots of privacy. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom. We loved seeing Croagh Patrick from the kitchen window. There was a well organized binder with any information you might need for the house and the town. The trip to "downtown" was less than 10 minutes.
Aine checked in with us (via text) a couple of times during the week to make sure that all was well. We made use of the grill, chiminea and fireplace (on a cool rainy day). One bit of information for those not used to it, we needed to pay for our electricity use through a pre-paid card and enter a code into the electric meter. Not a big deal, we paid 35 euro for our week stay. Our vacation in Westport was wonderful and Oakleaf Cottage was a big part of that! We would highly recommend this rental and hope to return in the future.
