Ya antes de llegar nos facilitaron toda la información para llegar sin problemas. Solo llegar nos explicó el funcionamiento de la casa y nos obsequió con una tarta, leche y te. Los colchones muy cómodos y los nórdicos perfectos. Disponer de lavadora y secadora nos fue de maravilla.

We stayed here for one week, along with another couple. Located in a very quiet area, only roaring cows and birds to hear. Cottage lovely, very clean and equipped well. Very, very comfortable bed, brilliant mattress on a divan base, none of these cheap slatted things here!!! Good wifi throughout the house. All solid floors and very easy to clean, good vacuum cleaner provided. We were allowed to bring our dog and she really enjoyed the open space. Martina and Peter were very helpful and nothing was too much bother to them. Very convenient to the towns of Claremorris, Castlebar and village of Balla...(.Sorrento Chip shop well worth a visit). Would love to return if ever in the area again.

We used Green Acres as a base to prepare for our wedding in Mayo. It was a perfect location, perfect size- exactly what we were looking for. Martina was extremely welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay. Can't wait to come and stay again in the future!

Excellent rapport qualité prix. Les photos sur le site sont parfaitement représentatives du cottage et de son environnement. Trois chambres : 2 de deux lits et une d'un lit soit 8 couchages possibles. C'est simple, propre, pas spécialement design... mais c'est l'endroit parfait pour se balader dans le Connemara. On n'est qu'a a peine de 40 km de Westport par une belle nationale. Nos hôtes sont charmants. Le wifi fonctionne très bien. C'est vraiment un bon deal pour un groupe d'amis, une famille ou même en couple aimant avoir de la place...

Recently stayed at Green Acres for 2 weeks & couldn't wish for a better rental. Martina & Peter were so helpful & available whenever we had a query. The house was ideal to accommodate 3 generations, it was clean & beautifully furnished & ideally situated for a break in the countryside with Balla, Claremorris & Castlebar nearby.

We were visiting the area especially for a pilgrimage to Knock. The was very clean and comfy. The house is close to Claremorris which has everything you need supermarket wise. Castle bar is not that very far away and that is quite a big town. Need extra money for electricity used but not a lot and money for oil for the heating again not a lot but wasn't cold so didn't use it much. Martina is lovely and so welcoming, would definitely love to visit again.

I chose this cottage to spend my ten year wedding anniversary this month. I've never been to Ireland and I wanted to stay in a peaceful country atmosphere but still close to towns and pubs. We were not disappointed! Claremorris is very close and had everything that we needed for groceries and pubs. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything a kitchen should have but be sure to pick up some groceries. The bed (there are multiple but we only used one) was incredibly comfortable. Everything was very clean and proper. The wifi did go in and out but we rarely used it and found that the signal was near perfect in the front living room. I caught myself saying, "When we get home," referring to the cottage and not Massachusetts-- rather often because after spending the entire day searching out gorgeous abandoned castles it felt like we were coming home to our home. This cottage is that inviting and has that warm atmosphere. Next time we go to Ireland we will stay in this letting again and we will doubtless bring our children. Martina has rented out this property for many years and she knows what she's doing. She was always available if we needed anything and Peter was wonderful for meeting us when our flight was delayed late into the evening. I've already recommended this cottage to my in-laws (who may be booking soon!) and many of my traveling friends. Thank you Martina and Peter for sharing this home with us. We had many wonderful memories and such a positive experience.

This cottage is old but basic plenty of parking and comfortable ideal for central point, allow for extras like electricity and oil for heating don't rely too much on the Wi-Fi very patchy. The location comes under Balinrobe but it is between Balla and Claremorris. Would I go back again yes I would.
