The owner was a very kind and warm hearted host who made us feel welcome the first second we entered her beautiful cottage by the sea.

A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous setting. The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming, helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended. We even had cows and calves in a field nearby. It was an idyllic setting for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.

The owners very welcoming, we had great laughs with them. The cottage generates great seaside views, is back from the road and is very cosy. A real gem with extremely nice people around

The owner and all her family were very friendly and generous with their time. The house is in a beautiful Gaelic-speaking area and the owners are native Gaelic speakers with a deep appreciation and knowledge of the local Gaelic culture. Lovely people and a very happy house.

The owners of the property were fantastic. They made us feel welcome and our stay very comfortable. They also provided us a hand drawn map of places to eat and visit in the area which was very helpful. The house was well equipped with everything to make us feel at home. The location was great with a beach only 2 minutes away which was one of the nicest beaches I have ever seen.

Staying here does literally feel like you are being welcomed into someone's home. The hosts greet you like old friends and the house has everything you could possibly need for a good holiday in the area. It is perfectly placed between Clifden and Galway and the scenery driving to either place is spectacular. The owner bringing round freshly baked and still warm soda bread was an absolutely lovely touch we won't ever forget. We'd love to come back here at some point.
