Our first experience with airbnb and a very positive one. A beautiful house, well equipped, on a quiet Location only a few meters to the sea. And this in combination with a host, who - although not present - was always available for us. A mail and a few minutes later we had an answer.
I only can reccomend both: the house and the host.
Parfait ! Le logement était conforme à nos attentes. Un joli petit bouquet de fleurs nous attendait à notre arrivée accompagné d'un pot de confiture et d'un petit pain. Gentille attention !
Propre et confortable, ce logement nous a permis de nous relaxer et de profiter pleinement de nos vacances. Bravo et merci à notre hôte !
Killeenaran is really a very nice place, located in a bay where the light is very changing all along the day, and especially the sunset.
I completely agree with Aoife documentation's description when she says that we are in the best place in south Ireland.
Aoife was always available, as soon as we had a question, and the indications to find the place were very clear.
The house is very pleasant with a beautiful garden behind the house, full equipped, and comfortable.
We've passed 3 fantastic days in this region, where we can discover differents spots of the Ireland (Aran islands, Connemara, Cliff of Moher, Burren).
Thank's for all !
Merveilleux séjour en Irlande et dans la maison d'Aoife Anderson !
Nous avons passé 9 jours chez Aoife, sa maison de famille. Tout a été parfait : Aoife et sa gentillesse et sa grande disponibilité pour répondre à nos questions pour préparer notre séjour, la maison et son environnement. Un lieu superbe, calme tout à côté de l'océan, en campagne mais pas isolée et des voisins charmants. la maison est très confortable et spacieuse ainsi que son grand jardin pour jouer et même manger dehors. oui il fait beau en Irlande. Nous sommes partis la journée visiter des lieux magnifiques du pays mais aussi nous sommes restés tranquilles à la maison. Le fait d'avoir la mer à côté, permet de balader, de chercher des crabes et de voir de magnifiques couchers de soleil. Les irlandais sont tellement accueillants et aimables que nous discutions facilement avec notre voisinage et les personnes qui baladaient. un très bon séjour de découverte en famille et de repos.
We spent a lovely 3 nights/4 days at the cottage. The roads leading up to the cottage provided an adrenaline rush similar to a roller coaster ride; happily by the 4th day they became less frightening. The cottage was very nicely arranged - the white linens and spreads on the beds gave it a great, clean feel. The kitchen contained plenty of tea for us to enjoy while relaxing and taking in the surroundings. Having access to the sea only a few minutes walk away was amazing. Very interesting to walk out there in the afternoon and then again at sunset to see the dramatic difference the tide makes! Great photo opportunities. Galway City was a short drive away, and we actually preferred the quiet and break from city life. We also went to the Cliffs one afternoon and that was a very scenic drive as well. Overall, we would recommend staying at the Cottage, as it fit our needs very well.
This is a beautiful home in a beautiful area. It is a little ways off the beaten path but what it lacks in proximity, it more than makes up for in charm. The neighborhood is full of quaint thatched cottages and is a stone's throw from the water. We were greeted with a sprig of sea asparagus (delicious!) and a note suggesting we visit the ruins of nearby Tyrone House (which I recommend). The house itself is spacious and well furnished and has a beautiful backyard. I cannot recommend this house enough!
The pictures don't do this place justice -- in the morning the sun pours into a gorgeous kitchen from which you can see their garden laced with flowers. You can walk a path in the evening from the house along the bay, leading out to an incredible view of the sunset over the ocean and distant hills. And of course, Galway's just a half hour away or so.
