Da hat alles gepasst: Bei der Ankunft haben wir einen Zettel an der Haustüre des Besitzers gefunden: Der Schlüssel stecke in der Türe und wir sollen uns wohlfühlen. Beim Eintreten in die Wohnung hat uns dezente Musik und gemütliche Beleuchtung empfangen. Frische Eier, Butter Milch Brot und Früchte waren auch da. Auch Salz, Zucker, The etc. haben wir vorgefunden. Wir haben also gleich mal ein Rührei gemacht und konnten das Einkaufen auf später verschieben. Später haben wir die Vermieter kennengelernt. Sie waren unaufdringlich aber sehr nett.
Hier noch ein paar Highlights:
- Eier konnten gratis aus eigener Produktion bezogen werden. Auch den Gemüsegarten durften wir plündern. Kartoffeln ausstechen und Karotten war ein Spass für die Tochter.
- Kajaks, Ruderboot, Trampolin, Grill, Angeln, riesen Grundstück zum rumtoben.
- Geschirrspüler, gute Küchenausstattung.
- Buster und Bella, zwei Hunde die wir bereits vermissen. Super Kinderfreundlich.
Schaut es euch selber an… wir waren begeistert.

What a fabulous cottage, the character cottage was lovely, and the setting beautiful. we stayed in Lodge 1, it was equipped with everything you would expect, comfortable beds, and great facilities including wi-fi & sky tv. Everything was exactly as described in the ad.
the setting was the real plus, a beautiful loch at the back was the view from the bedroom and the rear of the cottage, there are 2 friendly dogs, Bella & Buster, free roaming hens & some donkeys in a paddock, delightful.
the best day out we had was Bunratty Castle & Folk park, we returned in the evening for an Irish evening, this was very entertaining with food and drinks, lovely.
The surrounding area is very nice, with the Burren National Park and Cliffs of Moher well worth a visit. Mount Cashel is an ideal location to explore the area, while being great place to spend time itself.
There is a warm welcome from the owners, we were given some eggs and other items to get started.
In all great value for money, would definitely recommend this accomodation.

Very nice place and rooms with a friendly host family, including the 4-legged (dogs, cats, horse and donkeys).
The location is excellent for exploring the famous landscapes and towns of west-Ireland with car. There was a very good information map in the lodge. Also a welcome-package with butter, milk and fresh fruits waited for us and the washing machine and dryer helped us enjoying the stay.
So we had to make a hard decision every day: should we make a trip or stay at the mount cashel surroundings including a boat and fishing experience on the lake, which holds a lot of pikes waiting to be catched (I ve got five in two days).

We were pleasantly surprised by the adorable cottage tucked away in a beautiful setting! The view of the lake was amazing! It had everything we needed to be comfortable. We loved the welcome basket, when we arrived late and hungry! The location was great for exploring the surrounding country each day. We would definatly stay here again and refer it to friends!

Hopefully the rain puts people off else we'll struggle to ever book it again. A wonderful, peaceful retreat with lovely hosts. 10/10.
