We had a really very nice stay in the apartment. It's a big apartment with oceanview, a big kitchen and various other rooms. Brian and Conny were really helpful and very easygoing and friendly to talk to.
Brian was a great host offering a warm welcome. The holiday home was clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for our family of four. The house was in a beautiful location and very quiet.
Absolutely brilliant ! We adored every second we spent in this 2 bed apartment. Brian and his wife Conny couldn't have done more to make us feel at home and welcome. As for the accommodation it was first class. The kitchen was modern and very well equipped. The bathroom was excellent too with a modern hot shower. And the bedrooms were very comfortable. As for the area, we fell in love with it. The views are spectacular and we found the locals to be very friendly and approachable. It's authentic Ireland at it's best in the sense that it doesn't feel too touristic. It's off the beaten tourist track. We went for a bite to eat in nearby Kilmore Quay and my wife, who is French has never tasted crab or seafood this good in Ireland before. Overall, it's a treasure to behold.
