Turlough View is a lovely house in a beautiful peaceful setting. Everything was spotlessly clean and it's very well equipped with quality appliances. Everything is catered for-it was even stocked with free bottled water. It is open plan and very spacious. We enjoyed sitting out on the bedroom balcony upstairs in the mornings. The views from all windows at Turlough are stunning. The log fire was lovely. Having internet access was a great bonus as was having the BBC channels. The caretaker is on hand and is very nice & helpful and she brought us home made scones which was a lovely gesture. The nearby river seems little explored and has some decent sized pike. We have a vacation rental ourselves and have stayed at many holiday rentals. This was one of the best.
Turlough View is beautiful!
Well stocked with quality appliances and comfortable furniture. Large and very clean.
The grounds are lovely and private.
A kind welcome of fresh cakes and a tour by the owner was very appreciated.
Pool table, jukebox etc were amazing for nights in.
Property is secluded and roads not really suitable to walk along so a car is essential for shops etc.
The house is better than the photos!!
