From Superior, USA Mar 2012

A fantastic vacation cottage. Relaxing, clean, spacious for the 6 adults (even room for more). Views of the Ireland country side and ocean a plus. The location was great. Close enough to small towns with great pubs and food, market places. Also close to Galway for city adventure. The location was perfect for day trips up and down the coast.
Ireland was a fantastic memory, this cottage was the base for those memories. I would recommend this gem to anyone.

This is a very great place to stay. You will find everything you need to have a great holiday! We were here on our honeymoon and had two weeks to experience a great country from this gorgeous homebase. Thank you

From Reading, United Kingdom Oct 2009

This property was ideal for a relaxed week away. The location was ideal for this purpose as it is away from Galway City but still close enough to visit easily by car or public bus. The property was amazingly comfortable with a great lounge with an open fire, spacious kitchen, ensuite master bedroom, and not forgetting - an awesome Jacuzzi! It is the closest house to what is a beautiful untouched coastline. It is only 4 miles from the nearest town (Spidall) which is a quaint little town with very friendly people. All in all, my girlfriend an i would give it 10 out of 10 as we had the best week ever!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic week away or a family week away.

What a wonderful vacation! The cottage was perfect and the location was awesome. Very quiet and relaxing, yet only a short drive to town for a pint and a bowl of chowder. I would highly recommend this property!

This was a very comfortable house in a beautiful setting. We really enjoyed our stay here and the kids had plenty of freedom. Nice area to go for a run and the nearest shop only a couple of kilometres away was very well stocked.

May 2010Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and bigger than we expected. Good value for money and well described. We would love to stay in this house again and will recommend it to everyone.Hanna

I spent 5 glorious days in this house and had I known it was so big, I would have invited more friends to stay! The location was utterly tranquil and is the perfect place to get some peace and quiet. The house had everything I needed and the communication with the owner was perfect from start to finish. Ash, April 2010.
