Ours was an excellent and relaxing stay.. Problems with the water were dealt with in good time and we really enjoyed the relaxed nature of the cottage. The village itself was very welcoming with lots of quiet, peaceful things to do. The exceptional weather certainly helped but we would be glad to re-visit Carrigaholt and this perfectly well-equipped cottage any time, and in any weather!
Not sure who 'Sykes Cottages' are, but we'd highly recommend Hogan's Cottages, if this one is anything to go by. We thought we were renting via Hogan's, which we presumed was an Irish company. Is it simply a subsidiary of a larger, non-Irish company? For some reason that seems like a disappointing shame, yet sadly typical of today's hoodwinking culture. Ho-hum, we had a good holiday, although we'd rather have contributed more to the Irish economy.
