This holiday property is clean and comfortable. Facilities such as washing machine, dryer and dishwasher, although not used by us, would be handy for someone on a longer visit to Ireland. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need for your stay. Although Ballinrobe is not a pretty town it is functional and has two large supermarkets, restaurants and a few shops. Ballinrobe is a short drive from the cottage - I would not recommend walking into Ballinrobe.
The property is within driving distance of stunning countryside and I can recommend trips to Cong, Westport, Galway and Clifton. If you want to go further affined the cliffs of Moher are maybe two hours drive.
The only negative comments are that the nearby road is high speed, very busy and sometimes noisy. so the garden is not really suitable for unsupervised children or pets. Additionally both bathrooms are a little 'tired' and could do with some easy fix maintenance.
