The cottage was delightful, very spacious, and very well furnished.. The owner kindly arranged for her apartment cleaner to get us a bag of real peat for the fire, which was really, really nice of them both. the cooking facilities were spot on, and I didn't realise that the garden was so large or that there was a second sitting area, which got all the morning sunshine. And both bathrooms were excellent, which made it really comfortable, as we took a friend along with us to stay, and we were able to not get in each others hair at all.
I also appreciated that the shops and pubs literally were a 3-4 minute walk away, not an Irish 3 minutes which can take up to 15 minutes. So really convenient for shopping and evening drinking - mentioning which, there was always some Traditional Irish music going on in at least one of the pubs every night, and the people of Milltown Malbay couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. It was also fabulous to have a large supermarket (Supervalue) literally next door, and open until 9.00 pm.
It was a great cottage, a great village and a great holiday. We even had 3 days of full blue skies at the end of the week. I am certainly considering renting this apartment again and bringing my daughter, son-in-law and grandson over for a week, and I can honestly recommend this cottage to anyone. It was really 10 out of 10. Faultless.
