My husband and dog stayed in Cregan Cottage earlier this month and it was a wonderful retreat. We took spare blankets to cover their couch and chairs so that little Zola (the dog) didn't leave paw prints every where and she loved it there! We felt so safe and relaxed, coming from Galway City centre it was great to be able to sit in the evening with the back door and front door open letting the dog potter around the lovely gardens to her hearts content. Daisy the donkey was great company, we fed her a carrot every day and each morning she'd potter up to the fence to greet us :o)
The local shops were approx a 10 minute drive and we were within very easy reach of Castlerbar, Foxford, Westport, Ballina and the Achill Islands.
The stove in the lounge helped to make our evenings very cosy and the bbq set out the back gave us additional eating options if the evenings were mild.
The house was very clean, with plenty of bedding and towels. The bathroom is very new with a great power shower and the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable with a window view over the front garden. in the morning I would read in bed and look over and see Daisy the donkey pottering in her field.
We will definately go back one day, lots of fond memories are held there!
