I really liked this place. If you want to get away from it all and find some spirituality then this is for you. Never mind the unpredictable weather - that adds to the experience.
The cottage is warm - in all senses of the word - and is very spacious. The kitchen has plenty of equipment (no potato peeler tho'!), a couple of sofas (one is a sofa bed I think) with a massive picture window overlooking the Atlantic and the Aran Islands. If you're lucky and the weather is good you can see some stunning sunsets over the islands.
The cottage has candles scattered throughout, books to read, iPod docking station, CD player, small tv (reception not too good, but that's typical of the area I think), lovely open fire.
Bathroom is a wet room with a great showering area.
The 3 bedded room has patio doors and overlooks the Atlantic - stunning. The other room is in the original part of the cottage with thick stone walls and flooring and nicely styled. Gorgeous.
Yes, the driveway to the cottage is very steep with a few bends so be careful. The grounds are very wild with cows grazing almost within touching distance. You can see loads of horses galloping across the fields and tussling with each other with the Atlantic as the backdrop.
We did try to walk down across the fields to the coastal path (towards Cliffs of Moher) but wimped out when we saw how muddy it was and the number of cows and horses we would have to negotiate. But that's just us. We're not adventurous.
It is about a 5-10 minute drive to the nearest pub so bear that in mind. We wouldn't have walked or cycled as it was a bit too far with a youngster. Anyway, we weren't bothered as we spent a lot of our evenings reading, playing board games, drinking wine, eating in the cottage, chilling in front of the fire, looking at the skies, enjoying the silence.
Bear in mind, if you want to be connected with the outside world, a mobile phone signal is almost non-existent at the cottage and there is no wifi access.
