Caroline did a great job in hosting us. She was attentive to our needs and quick to fix anything that went wrong. The breakfast was incredible!
Definitely stay here, do not miss this one (would have been 5 stars but a cold shower that couldn't be serviced immediately by the plumber held it back). I am sure it would be fixed by now!
Caroline's home was a perfect location from which to explore Galway. The room was spacious and well fitted -- we particularly appreciated the hair dryer and warm/comfortable bed. She and her mother were eager to talk about the family's multi-generation relationship with the home -- and their dog Harry enthusiastically encouraged belly rubs. The boxwood hedges in the front were as spectacular as they look in the photo.
Lovely thatched cottage was ideal for our overnight stay whilst attending a wedding locally. The cottage was easy to find (just typed in kilgill on google maps and it brought us to the road where it is). Accommodating host: checkin time is 6pm but Caroline had organised a key for us earlier as we were going to a wedding. The room was good, nice apple pie and tea on arrival! Shower was powerful.
Breakfast was lovely too and we shared the table with some interesting German guests.
Caroline is a very friendly and relaxed host and her thatched cottage is a place worth seeing - so full of (family) history. We were welcomed with cookies and muffins on our bedside table, good some good nights of sleep, met very friendly people at the breakfast table and really enjoyed the atmosphere there during our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Thatched Cottage! One feels like you're staying in a centuries old cottage, except you have all the amenities. The suites are a recent addition with brand new bathrooms and charming bedrooms. Breakfast was lovely. We sat family style with other couples from several different countries and had pleasant conversations. Caroline was so accommodating and pleasant and we even found we had a surname in common. Highly recommend.
Hôte très sympathique et accueillant! Très ouvert à la discussion et chaleureux. Caroline et Brian nous ont donné de bons conseils sur la région...
Chambre spacieuse et lumineuse, bien aménagée, propre.
Belle maison et beau jardin.
Petit-déjeuner convivial et copieux.
