A beautiful place if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. Just leave house as you find, thank you.
This is a no smoking house, but you are welcome to use outdoor patio. It is also a very tranquil place so I hope you are looking for a relaxing holiday.
Un de nos plus beaux souvenirs de vacances :d'abord pour la gentillesse et le dévouement de Kathy, ensuite pour le site : à couper le souffle. La maison domine le lac, c'est superbe.
A place that seems out of this world, a spacious house, excellent breakfast and absolute calm... it's just what we wanted.
Le logement était difficile à trouver à cause de quelques erreurs dans notre préparation mais Kathy n'a pas hésité à venir nous retrouver en voiture! C'est un hôte vraiment dévoué! La chambre est très agréable et propre, et la salle de bains spacieuse. De petites attentions nous attendaient: barres chocolatées et eau. Le petit déjeuner était très riche: beaucoup de choix avec, en plus, une très belle vue sur le lac. Merci beaucoup Kathy!
I had a great stay with Kathy in her home overlooking the beautiful Lough Mask and ended up staying 3 nights instead of 2. Part of what is great about staying in someone's home is getting to know them and/or their friends. I was fortunate enough to meet a couple of her friends who came by and got a chance to be more immersed in Irish culture. When I wanted to grab a late night bite to eat, Kathy called ahead and had them keep the kitchen open at the local pub. She was incredibly warm and professional and I would highly recommend her and her home. I'm going to send her some of the beautiful pictures I took from her lakeside home to add to her profile.
Kathy nous a laissé du saumon fumé au réfrigérateur en nous prévenant qu'elle ne serait pas là pour nous accueillir.
Sa maison est superbement située, avec une vue somptueuse sur le lac. L'endroit est très, très calme.
Les chambres sont correctes, l'une à une vue sur le lac et l'autre donne sur l'arrière, sans qu'il y ait aucune vue. la salle de bains est très bien. Le petit salon attenant et la cuisine sont très appréciables. Nous y avons passé de très bons moments et nous avons pu être très indépendants et autonomes pendant toute cette semaine.
Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour.
I was looking for a peaceful place to have a good time, maybe combined with a nice view...
and I got more than I could ask for! Kathys home is just fantastic, the view is spectacular and I had everything I needed.
Thank you for some wonderful days during which I could relax and enjoy the beautiful Joyce Country. I highly recommend it!
What a fabulous place Kathy has! The view from the bedroom and lounge rooms was breathtaking. Kathy was a wonderful caring host-I cannot even begin to thank her for the way she went out of her way to look after me during my stay + wonderful breakfasts, advice on places to go and what to see. Only problem I had was my tendency to get lost & my Sat Nav's refusal to recognise the names of smaller villages- but this is more a comment on myself & the Sat Nav. If I had been able to follow Kathy's excellent directions, I probably would not have had such issues. Thankfully once I found my way I had no more problems during my 2 day stay. Thank you Kathy for your generosity and for sharing your beautiful home.
