This cottage was a very warm and welcoming retreat for our large family.. We enjoyed the personal touches of family photographs and the kitchen was very well equipped. My mother took to calling the sitting room behind the stove "nana's parlor". We felt very at home. We only wished that we could have stayed longer!
Beautiful house in an amazing and convenient location.. Very nice hosts.

We loved this cute little cottage in the conemara countryside.. The cottage was very clean, plenty big enough and cozy. The owners were very thoughtful and helpful. The fire was lit when we arrived they showed us on the map where we could find hiking trails, castles and many other things to do during our stay. Thank you!

It's a very old, characterful, beautiful cottage set in the real depths of Connemara.. The nearest little village of Ros muc is twenty minutes' drive down the road. The owners are really lovely and we had a gorgeous time overall, despite the wet weather! Would highly recommend. Be aware there is no wifi and the area is unable to pick up data either.
It was beautiful.. We enjoyed the peace very much and were very happy about the loving reception of our hosts. From here we were able to reach all our sights without any problems. We can only recommend this beautiful little house in any case.
A beautiful traditional cottage in a wonderfully remote location.. Very well-equipped and comfortable, with helpful owners who live next door.
Parking is off-road, opposite the cottage. The immediate area is a very beautiful and there are plenty of local walks.
A real bargain at the price!
We had the most amazing week.. The cottage was simply lovely, spacious yet warm and cosy. So lovely to find a peat fire when we arrived. Great walks, great beaches, great fishing...all the things we went to Connemara for.
This is an excellent cottage in a great location! It is really old but very well kept and internally a modernized cottage. The owners are super friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more and would love to return!

My family and I really loved staying at this beautifully renovated cottage.. It was modern yet homely and very spacious. We thought the location was perfect as a base for travelling and we enjoyed the wonderful views out of the cottage into the mountains and lake beyond. The owner was so kind and gave us lots of information and did everything possible to help us to enjoy our stay and get the most out of our time in Ireland. She went above and beyond what we expected and we will definitely stay at Tigh Mhicïl cottage again. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

A good situation to discover Connemara.. Very peaceful.
The warm and friendly welcome from the owners; the cosiness of the cottage and its location. We went to the lovely town of Westport and back on the magnificent drive from Louisburgh to Leenaun. Galway, one of my favourite cities, is less than an hour away and from there we visited the Burren but the best day by far was the day we spent on the Aran Islands. We highly recommend this cottage and hope to spend more time there.
