  • For the most part, a lovely stay

    "Our family of five took the trip of a lifetime to Ireland in May, 2016. We are a quiet family of two adults and three college-aged children. We enjoyed the rural location of this home. We were minutes away from the Cliffs of Moher and the town of Doolin. It was a short drive to the Burren where we enjoyed walks through the rocky landscape. We took a day trip to Galway which was a 90 minute drive. We also took a day trip to the Connemara Mountains and Kylemore Abbey which was so worth the 3 hour drive!! The home was spacious, clean and private. Nancy met us at the house when we arrived and showed us around. The beds were comfortable and the showers had fabulous water pressure and plenty of hot water. The views of the ocean and Doonagore castle were awesome from the front windows. The kitchen was well-equipped. The only problem we had with the home was the heat. It was chilly during our ten-day stay. When we arrived, the heat wasn't even on and the house was quite cold. The first level is heated with underfloor heating and the second level by hot water radiators. Nancy turned the heat on and told us it would take "20 minutes" to heat up. After several hours and no improvement, we called Thessa, the property manager. Thessa stated it would take "several hours" to heat up. Well, it was so cold the first night that my son went to bed with his coat on. It literally took about 4 or 5 days until the lower level warmed up somewhat. The upstairs hot water radiators did a good job within a few days, but the downstairs remained chilly for most our our stay. My husband spoke to Thessa several times about the heat. It didn't help that the heat was on a timer - The downstairs never had a chance to heat up. We did eventually feel the heat in the floor in the back downstairs bedroom. We never did feel any heat in the floor in the front bedroom, the dining room, the living room, or the kitchen. We suggested to Thessa that maybe the heating should be checked in those particular rooms. The kids did not even use the downstairs front bedroom because it was too cold. Instead they shared rooms upstairs. Thessa ultimately instructed us to bypass the automatic timer and keep the heat on as needed. When we returned to the states, the owner told us she was "disappointed that we used the heat so much!!" Other than the heat issue, we enjoyed the house and our stay in Ireland."

  • Happy swimmers from Canada

    "We had an excellent trip! In Ireland for the first time and came across this apartment. We rented 5 apartments and that is where the wonderful help and guidance came from the ownership team. The apartments were awesome. The owners were even more awesome! They helped us find local transportation for our 10 days, always available via email for questions and all started with a guided drive from airport to apartment. We recommend any apartment in their complex!! Thank you for making our trip affordable, well organized and extremely memorable for our swimmers and coaches!!!"

  • Perfect location

    "We recently returned from a stay at Lisheen house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We were a party of twelve including four generations and the house accommodated everyone's needs from a first floor bedroom with bath to a crib and high chair. The setting is ideal with views of the ocean, the idyllic countryside and the Burren. Lisheen house is not far from Galway city, the Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey, the Sky Drive and of course the Burren National Park. Seamus and Mary are accommodating and friendly hosts. We highly recommend this property!"
