The owners were very welcoming on our arrival.. The cottage provided an excellent base for our two week holiday in Ireland. It is in a relatively quiet spot about 5 miles outside the town of Castlebar. It was cosy and quite comfortable with lots of thoughtful personal touches, although it could do with an additional small sofa/loveseat-size soft chair to really give two people a space to stretch out and relax after a day's touring. Currently, aside from the 4 wooden dining chairs, there is just the one small sofa and a wicker chair available. The kitchen area was well stocked with utensils and appliances though no dishwasher was available which might not be suitable for some people. There was a separate utility room with washing machine but no dryer. The property could use an airer on which to hang washing. The satellite TV system doesn't work at all but there are basic RTE TV and radio stations available. The wi-fi was excellent. We had no problem with connectivity and were able to play radio stations via the BBC iPlayer Radio app and stream Sky TV from our devices without any difficulty which largely made up for the lack of satellite TV. The property was well stocked with books, board games and useful travel information. The mezzanine level bedroom (containing 2 single beds) is useful if needed and accessed via a fold-down ladder from the main room though it proved to be very noisy throughout the house when used. Overall in spite of some drawbacks it was a restful cottage in a lovely spot which we looked forward to returning to each night. The outside table and chairs proved a delightful sitting/reading area on sunny days.

The bathroom need to be repaired.. The shower and the back of the toilets were leaking on the ground from every parts, the sink didn't close we'll. On the other hand, the rest was perfect.

Uncomfortable beds, inadequate comfortable seating, cottage was really grubby & is in need of a really thorough clean, floor was particularly dirty.. Kitchen very grubby & we had to wash everything before use. There was no welcome pack, such as milk in fridge (always with other cottage letting websites) and the first page of housekeeping book includes information on what to do when leaving (whilst I appreciate this information is necessary, does it really have to be the first thing you see in the housekeeping book - not very welcoming)

We were welcomed by the owners who showed us all the essentials and left us such a sweet welcome basket with tasty foods. The cottage is so well seT out with a fantastically stocked kitchen, lots of board games and books for rainy days maps and lots of stuff about the area. The scene is set with a turf fire and loft space to hang out in. Hands down one of the nicest places I've stayed in IIreland.

beautyful, quiet situated, very warm welcome and excellent equiped. The cottage is good for a couple or small family with older childrens which want to have a calm staying. Your neighbar is a butcher with a small shop, having best lambchops we ever had for barbeque. Some of the facility is made by old traditional irish style. You may able to use all amenities on the site as open barbeque site, camping chairs and tables, a big open barn and herb garden. The only thing which need to renovate is the shower cabin.Inside the cottage is attached to a groundfloor-bedroom a open loft with 2 beds, reachable by a very steep ladder. (not good for young childrens or older people)

The cottage was beautiful and idyllic, and the hosts were lovely and had thought of everything you might need in a holiday rental. We especially loved the books provided which were about the local area, the attention to small details in the kitchen and bathroom, and generally the whole property was very charming and the perfect getaway.

I totally loved the cottage--would love to live there on a daily basis if I could! I liked the fact that it was oil heated, plus you had an open fire with all the turf you could use so the cottage was always warm and cozy. It was very clean and well equipped. The couple who owns the property are very friendly as well.
