  • Cozy Cottage in a Great Location

    "We spent several weeks as guests of Marian and John in Ashtree Cottage. They were very friendly and gracious hosts. We found the cottage matched what the description and pictures online showed. The cottage was inviting, well equipped and each of the three bedrooms had en suite bath. Peat (turf) was provided if we wanted a fire. We had requested Internet access and Marian set it up when we arrived. Although it was a little slow, it was adequate for surfing and email, as Marian had told us in a previous conversation. The only negative I can think of is that the sofa and chairs in the living room could use better support for the cushions and we brought that to Marian's attention. Marian and John's farm is located next door and any questions or concerns were quickly addressed. Marian was very helpful in helping us find local music and restaurants. The cottage was on a quiet country road and we took a walk most days, sometimes joined by Buddy, the farm dog. We often ended up at the Shannon River which was tucked in between trees and farmland and very beautiful. You will need a car as it is a drive of 10 minutes to Banagher for groceries, petrol, pubs and restaurants. It was an ideal place to explore central Ireland with monastic sites, castles, gardens, bogs, steeplechase racing, distilleries, canals, and markets. We really enjoyed the sunsets, listening to the birds and watching Marian's flowers bloom. Family members who stayed with us for a week agreed with our assessment of the cottage. We would definitely stay in Ashtree Cottage again and would recommend it to our family and friends."

  • Beautiful cottage in a magical spot

    "One of the best places I've ever rented in Ireland, and I've been visiting for over 30 years! I LOVE Connemara and wish I could have stayed longer. The cottage is situated at the base of the Maumturk mountains and has the Western Way running through the back of it (entrance a little down the road) and has Lough Inagh and the 12 Bens on the other side (Lough Inagh visible from a short walk up the driveway). You couldn't ask for a more peaceful, scenic place to stay. The cottage itself is very well appointed and stocked - you'll want for nothing in the kitchen. There's a lot of counter space for food preparation as well as cupboard space - both important and often lacking in rentals. It was so nice to sit by the back window and gaze on the mountains, sheep, horses and cows and listen to the birds singing. The cottage overall was so comfortable and cozy and very clean. The mudroom at the back was a very welcome addition for those days coming in from hikes. You couldn't find a better cottage to base yourself for exploring the Western Way or the mountains and general area. I really hope I can come back again, and soon."

  • A lovely house, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean & well equipped.

    "We had a wonderful holiday in Dara Bru Na Mara! Excellent location beside the sea in a remote part of Connemara. The grounds outside the property are meticulously kept. Our children really enjoyed climbing the rocks & stones alongside the sea. The inside of the house is spacious & very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery & utensils. The beds were comfortable & had nice bedlinen. The WIFI was reliable & satellite TV was available. The oil fired heating is set to come on morning & evening, we also lit the fire one day that it was stormy. Riona was a very nice lady, informative about local attractions & readily available to answer any questions. We visited Inishmore island, Connemara National Park (climbed Diamond Hill), Kylemore Abbey, Clifden, Roundstone, Cong, went pony trekking in Ballyconneely, visited Dog's Bay, Gurteen's Bay & the local Mweenish beach, enjoyed it all thoroughly."
