Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans un cadre exceptionnel.
La maison est parfaite et très accueillante.
Je recommande cette maison.
Large house with everything you need and lovely garden. Location is good and Aofies local suggestions were good. we had a great time and would recommend.
The house was perfectly cosy and practical. We all were stunned by the lovely garden and admired all the flowerbeds. Just a little stroll to see the ocean. And a quiet area for walks. So all helped us to relax as soon as we entered. We enjoyed the fireplace and the boardgames. We did not meet the family but though the internet they werd always available for any detail information. Our group of friends had a perfectly lovely time in this house. Thank you so much. Modita &co
The house was perfect for our long weekend in Ireland. It was really spacious and had everything we needed. The big kitchen was well stocked so we could cook, the bedrooms were comfortable and the fire perfect for when it got a bit chilly.
Amazing house for holidays with friends or family to discover West Ireland (Galway city, Connemara, Burren).
Aoife's house is perfect, nothing missing. It's very spacious, comfortable and it's a pleasure to stay there. The place is very quiet and the large garden is awesome!
Aoife is very available to answer of our question and to be sure that everything is ok for us!
A lovely place for your holidays!
La maison correspondait tout à fait à nos attentes, au milieu de la nature avec un joli jardin et à deux pas de l'océan. Très fonctionnelle, cette agréable propriété est un point départ idéal pour visiter la région, entre les falaises de Moher et le Connemara. Notre hôtesse nous a réservé un très bon accueil et des indications très claires.
We found the house very pleasant , it corresponded to the description It is located in a rural environment very pleasant .
