A lovely cottage in a really well placed base to see the West of Ireland. Nuala made us feel so much at home, even providing wifi on request. Thank you so much for that, it kept the teenagers and adults in contact with family and friends. Nuala couldn't have done anymore to make our stay fabulous and we would recommend to all.

Lovely cottage set near Charlestown. Nuala the host couldn't do enough for my Grandmother and I. We will definitely return again in the future as we have family who live nearby. We stayed for a week and found it easy to get to other towns as we had hired a car.

I stayed here with my husband, baby, parents, siblings and their partners in July and had the most wonderful and relaxing holiday. The home is a beautiful country cottage, which we felt very cost and at home in. The views around the house are stunning and we enjoyed long walks in the fields and lazy afternoons sat out in the garden enjoying the scenery. The host is always on hand and couldn't do enough for us. It felt like a real home from home holiday and we didn't want to leave! We will definitely go back as I love this place.

This was a perfect holiday cottage for our home away from home stay in Ireland with extended family. The cottage was clean and cozy and the homeowner was very welcoming and attended to our every request and need. We highly recommend this cottage and plan to stay here during future visits to the area.

With kitchen and laundry facilities, the house suited our needs perfectly. Nothing fancy, but everything we needed for a 10 day stay with kids was included. We phoned ahead, and the owner, Nuala, met us at the door and gave us a quick run down of how things worked (easily) when we got there. She lives next door and was very friendly and accommodating. The house is situated within easy distance of everything we did - close to N-17 off the N-5 without hearing or seeing any traffic. Per the rental description, the heating oil was metered at an extra cost. Our heating bill was 80 Euro for 10 days - probably not bad as it was late December and the temperature outside was unseasonably rainy and cold. Overall, it was a good experience. We had a lovely time.

Nice cottage in Western Ireland. Very central. Definitely need a car to get around as public transport is minimal. Three bedroom property, with one bathroom and one en-suite. Nuala the owner is a lovely person who does her best to make your stay a comfortable one.
