We had a lovely time at Tom, Rosie and Adam's appartement despite the rain!
They welcomed us with scones tea etc., wonderfull, and were very helpfull and full of advices for us!
Thanks to them we had a lovely horse ride, and did a lot of really nice visits!
Thanks to the 3 of you and we are very sorry we couldn't say goodbye when we left
Our first experience with Airbnb hosted by Tom and Rosie has so far not been matched and may never be. The welcome was like a family visit, the place clean and fit and the view perfect. We visited many sites within an easy drive and found many of the people very hospitable which just added to our whole experience with our hosts. We didn't really have to plan, just ask or look at the information Tom and Rosie has gathered.
We were pretty much off on our own during our stay but were assured that anything we needed, all we had to do is ask.
Loved it. Nothing to improve. Need to go back some day.
This Garden Apartment is absolutly perfekt!!!
Rosie and Tom made us feel home from the very beginning! With nice welcome coffee and scones, with a book full of informations and a basket full of delicious things! Rosie, Tom and Adam are the absolutly perfect hosts!!! They are helpful, kind and friendly. Rosie prepared everything for the kids safety and comfort. They were there for advise, talking or to go for a walk. I can´t imagine better hosts!!
The house is absolutly perfekt. It is warm, cozy and clean. And the view is absolutly amazing!!!
We missed absolutly nothing. In the kitchen was everything we needed. I love to cook there with musik and the view of the lake.
The kids had a babybed, there were books for children and also children cups and plates. They had a slide in the garden and much space to play! I recommend these place absolutly for families with kids!
We had also house shoes, bathrobes, extra blankets,... and so many items more to feel comfortable! By the way, the master kingsize bed was so comfortable you can see the lake from there too. It was great to start a day like this!
The location is absolutly great - directly at lough derg next to Killaloe. Around the Lake are a lot beautiful villages and nice places for picknick or photostops. It is worth it to leave the road and stop at parking places at the lake. It is also a short way to Cliffs of moher and the burren and Galway and Limerick as well.
We will recommend this Apartment and its hosts in any way! I know for a fact that we will come back some day!!!
This was our 5th Airbnb stay and was by far the best. Tom, Rosie and Adam welcomed us warmly and by the time we left we felt almost like family. The apartment was perfect: big enough for a family, spotlessly clean and outfitted with everything that we could imagine having need for. Our only regret was that we weren't staying longer!
A very beautiful place, the nicest place in Ireland. Our hosts were wonderful, very gracious and their hospitality was the best ever. When we return to Ireland this will be our destination, only for a much longer stay.. We thank you Tom and Rosie and we are very glad to have met you..
Nicht einfach nur eine Unterkunft - nein: ein Platz zum Wohlfühlen, Geniessen und Entspannen. Tom und Rosie sorgen einfach für alles und verhalfen uns zu einem sehr eindrucksvollen Urlaubserlebnis. Wir haben wirklich schon sehr oft privat gewohnt - aber Tom und Rosie übertreffen alles bisher Erlebte. Vielen Dank für die Herzlichkeit und die spürbare Freude an der Gastfreundschaft - wenn wir wiedermal nach Irland kommen werden, dann jedenfalls zu Tom und Rosie!!!
Thanks so much to Tom, Rosie, and Adam! What great hosts! You can tell that they love people and know how to host fellow travelers. The apartment was clean and so cozy. The beds were comfortable and we loved relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views. We had a long week of travel and we were kindly greeted with a warm reception. Tom and Rosie made coffee, tea, and scones and we sat down to chat with their family. They were very helpful and made us feel at home. Rosie even left us cheese, deli meats, cold Guinness, and other goodies to get us started. We had a great stay! Thanks so much for your hospitality.
