Fabulous
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 stay in West Ireland
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.

Charming home in idyllic setting
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.

Fantastic cottage for our home away from home stay in Ireland
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.
