Blissful peace and quiet! A lovely spot with easy access to Lough Derg. It was especially nice to be welcomed by the owners themselves and be given information about local restaurants etc. They were also available by phone for any small queries which arose. The use of their boat on the lough was a lovely treat and Oliver took time to show us how to operate it.

Beautiful comfortable cottage with a real cosy feel to it. Much bigger than we expected. The owners went out of their way to help us and they gave us such a warm welcome.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful part of Ireland, and having the boat to use with the cottage was excellent, there was lots of bird life and otters out on the loch. A very relaxing holiday.

This was the most perfect cottage, and the owners made us very welcome. I would recommend The Humble Daisy to anyone who wants a quiet, beautiful location by the beautiful Lough Derg, but within easy reach of Galway.

From start to finish this cottage is amazing and it's a hidden gem. The owner is so lovely and extremely helpful.

A lovely cottage with all you need. It was a pleasure to stay here and we would book it again, if we stay near this area. Thanks to the landlady. All in all, superb.

The Humble Daisy was a true delight! From the moment we stepped in, we were delighted! The owners have taken every step to ensure you have a beautiful home to stay in. The bedding was wonderful, and the house was very clean and cosy. We loved the fireplace and the darling living room. The new modern kitchen was beautiful and very easy to relax in. We spent so much time in this house just enjoying it. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Galway.

The owner was a lovely lady and very welcoming. When we arrived there was a fire waiting for us in the cottage. The cottage itself was homely and comfortable; we slept so well and had a very lazy and relaxing holiday!

The 19th century restored thatched roof cottage was absolutely outstanding in every respect and our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

The owners close by were charming and very helpful throughout. A very comfortable and peaceful location but with plenty to do including boat and pier fishing, cycling and lovely walks.

Wow, this is such a great hide away from the world. In the middle of nowhere. A great fire place in the living room and good stuff in the kitchen (Nespresso, water heater, oven, magnetron, washing machine, etc) make this place a place where you can relax and unstress. We were welcomed by Mary Rose with a bottle of wine and a burning fire. The lake is beautiful with stunning views. The boat (with engine!) brings you to the swans and small islands. What else to say? The cottage breathes love and dedication. Very clean. 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms. Don't forget to shop before arriving. The nearest supermarket is about 20 minutes driving.

We staied a week in the humble daisy and enjoyed it very much. The cottage is lovely and has everything you need, even a dishwasher. The owners are very nice and try to help you wherever they can. They even brought us a tricycle and some toys for our little son. It's perfect to go fishing and has even its own motorboat. The only negative point, if you can say so, is that it is quite secluded. To go shopping or go for a drink you have to drive 20min to Portumna (and the streets are partly very rustic), bigger cities are about an hours drive away.

For anyone looking for a REAL away-from-it-all holiday this has got to be the best I have yet encountered. If you like open log fires, the odd bottle of wine and stunning lakes, forests and great Irish food in nearby towns and rural villages - well this has to go on your list. The cottage has literally everything you need and all best quality. There was a bottle of heady wine and a log fire to welcome us - all we had to add was our choice of food for the week and a bit more wine to go with the atmosphere. My job takes me all over the world and so I don't really relax too well on "holiday" except here and I can say that I REALLY chilled for the first time in memory. If you want sport there are boats, fishing, bikes, golf (nearby) etc etc... The West of Ireland is rich in all the good things in life and in my "Humble" opinion this delightful cottage exemplifies the very best of it. N

Wonderful house, wonderful scenery, very relaxing brilliant location for walking holiday. My two Cocker Spaniels had a great time. Beds are very comfortable with high standard through out the house it felt like being at home very cosy and comfy excellent place for fishing or romantic getaway. Also excellent place for photography or painting being able to use the owners land for walking the dogs and having access to areas off Lough Derg

Really loved our stay at The Humble Daisy! Very comfortable and beautiful cottage, much larger than expected with beautiful gardens and with the use of the owners fields made the stay with our two springer spaniels perfect! Although no internet connection or wifi, this was actually a bonus as it made for a much more relaxing holiday. Mary Rose was fantastic and extremely helpful.

A charming restored cottage with all the modern conveniences. Needs screens, on windows & doors, however because of its rural location. On the downside, the cottage is very isolated with nearest shopping in Portumna 20 miles away. Driving on narrow 1 1/2 lane roads with tractors approaching you is nerve wracking for people not used to driving on the left side of the road, etc. Ergo: it's not a good location if you want to use this as a base of operation for day trips throughout Galway.

The Humble Daisy is a lovely spacious cottage in beautiful surroundings - it is a peaceful and relaxing retreat. We were very surprised at how big the cottage was, it would very comfortably sleep six people with plenty of space to store luggage and laundry. However we just had it for ourselves (two adults) and one very small dachshund, and it was bliss.
