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.
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 !
