The kitchen and living room are attractive, bright and comfortable with an log fire stove, wooden floors and all mod-cons. The holiday home is surrounded by lush green lawns and gardens and is close to a church, a shop, post office, pub and a community centre. The house can accommodate 6-7 people and is accessible for disabled people. A cot and a highchair are available while there is also a play area for kids with swings and a slide. Pets are welcome. A tackle/bait shed is also available for fishing enthusiasts and the nearby Lung River (Ballaghaderreen) and the Moy River (Ballina) offer a range of excellent fishing opportunities.

Great house for a family. All mod cons. We especially appreciated the WiFi as we had typical changeable Irish weather! Great spot for exploring the West! Nuala was so helpful and kind and gave us lots of ideas to do in the wet weather. Provided loads of wood and coal for the lovely stove. Definitely recommend for old cottage charm.

Just back from a weeks stay. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need for a self catering stay. Nuala was brilliant and so thoughtful. Always giving us ideas of places to visit and so kid to the children. The cottage is excellently located and we were able to see many different places with not too much travel involved. It is well off the road with a lovely safe play area for the kids who loved having the freedom to run around. There was seven of us and we had plenty of sale for everyone. We would highly recommend this cottage and I’m sure we will be back in the future. Thanks Nuala for your hospitality.

Stayed for 4 nights visiting family and touring the area. Perfect spot close to the airport and quick access to the N5. Cottage is lovely and quiet with everything you need. One bedroom has ensuite with shower and the other 2 bedrooms have basins in and share a bathroom so perfect for sharing with extended family or friends. Nuala was lovely and helpful, and nothing too much trouble. Would happily re book.

Nuala went out of her way to make sure our stay was a "home from home" experience. The cottage is very comfortable and fully equipped with all necessary utensils. It is also a child friendly environment with a large outside area for youngsters to run in. Set in the countryside about 8 kilometers from Charlestown it is in an ideal position to explore areas of the West Coast. Highly recommended. We would visit again.

This is the quintessential Irish cottage in a lovely setting located in an area known as the "Gateway to the West" of Ireland. Clean and comfortable accommodations with all of the amenities of home that will easily sleep seven (7) people. Great place for a long stay and/or family reunion or getaway. The owner, Nuala is warm and friendly, who made us feel so welcome from the minute we arrived and went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we needed in order to have a memorable stay. We came away knowing that we had had a true Irish experience.
