We had a delightful stay. The kitchen was clean, spacious and well supplied with all the essentials. The real log fire was delightful in the evenings, and the house was warm and cosy. We will be booking again for next year.

We could not fault the property at all- the peace and quiet surrounding the house was unbelievable. I loved everything about this part of Ireland the warmth and kindness of the Irish people and the beautiful Lough Key was definitely a trip you must take. I would go back tomorrow!
