We go to Ireland every year with our two dogs and teenage daughter, It is very difficult to find a property with a large enclosed garden, for our dogs to run in, that has a pub and restaurant withing walking distance, and has WiFi for our daughter and to keep her occupied on her I Pad.
This cottage fitted our needs, the owners live next door,and when we couldnt connect to the WiFi, they went out and bought and fitted a new router the next day,
The back garden is amazing, south facing with big gas barbeque, and plenty of outdoor seating to laze in the sun or eat alfresco, the lawned big garden is shared with the owners next door, who have a vegetable patch, but we hardly ever saw them, they even presented us with home grown potatoes and cauliflower.
The bungalow is a bit dated in its decor, and could do with a new bathroom, but saying that, it was very clean, and the cooker was gleaming inside, there was also a huge american fridge freezer and dishwasher and washing machine.
Miltown Malbay has plenty of bars, the Guinness was very good in Michael A's bar, and the Old Bakehouse restaurant was really beautiful.
I would go back again as this place suited all of our requirements
