The cottage was homely with some nice touches.The garden was beautiful and private and the pool and hot tub a bonus. The views across the fields were spectacular. The cottage was central to explore plenty of Ireland in all directions. The beds were comfortable.The owners were friendly but not intrusive.

The owners gave us such a warm welcome and really went that extra mile to make sure we had a good holiday. The cottage itself was just lovely, it really was a fabulous place to stay and we couldn't praise it enough. We can't wait to go back!

I could not fault one thing about this house or the people who own it. It felt like a home away from home. I will be coming back again, I loved every minute of it and can't wait to come back again.

The cottage is updated with all the modern amenities and is so cozy, and is nested in the countryside, a short drive into Dunmore, not far from Tuam, the owners Peter and Elsa are lovely people, and went all out to make sure we had everything we needed, anything you could think of they had; even made us home made bread and left a lovely bottle of wine. It's been an unforgettable experience.
