“Quaint Cottage, in need of some TLC”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at the cottage for 2 weeks, very good location to Dublin, Galway and West Point, nice summer room, nice to sit in and read very relaxing looking at the view through the window. Cottage is in need of some TLC and for two weeks we thought we should have had extra bed linen also there was not enough towels for 5 people.

It is with regret that the visitors choose a review to communicate their dissatisfaction .In the three years I have been renting the cottage this is the first time guests have ignored my attempts to communicate with them on arrival. On arrival I rang, texted and emailed the clients to ensure that all was well They did not respond . On my visit had they requested new linen or dissatisfaction with the bathrooms these issues would have been addressed immediately but these were not mentioned. Im delighted so many of my guests have enjoyed their time in the cottage and have communicated this in my many positive reviews

The cottage was wonderful, plenty of space inside and out, it had all of the equipment to make our stay easy and comfortable, the owner and her family were amazing, really helpful and so welcoming, we experienced the warm hospitality of a real Irish family, which added to our experience. We will be going back again.

“A JEWEL IN THE HEART OF IRELAND”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

'The Cottage' is the perfect choice for a peaceful Irish getaway.
The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, although we didn't even meet her - meaning our privacy was completely maintained.
The large detached house is magical and luxurious, with a traditional feel. The garden and the views are exceptional, our littlens were constantly entertained by the cattle in the adjacent field (cutest calves!)
Thanks Maeve for ensuring we had the best possible Easter holiday - we're already planning our return visit!

“Peaceful rural retreat”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lovely spacious and interesting cottage set in the heart of the Emerald Isle. We immediately felt at home and loved the space inside & out. Loved looking out at the cows and their calves grazing in the surrounding fields. Would definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for a relaxing and restful holiday.

Its a really great pity that you did not refer to any of the problems in the kitchen during your stay as we had daily contact. I could have rectified the problems on the first day so that your stay was more pleasurable . I recommend in future when staying in other homes you should always tell the homeowner first so that they can do something about the problems
