The house is surprisingly quiet for being in the town and anybody who enjoys simplicity will like this kind of space.

Communication with Mary was easy and so was the handing over of the keys. The cottage is, as described, a traditional home, very well situated close to the Burren, the cliffs of Moher and beautiful beaches. The house itself was clean and comfortable and there was nothing missing.
We had a good talk with Mary, which is a lovely lady. She welcomed us into the house, and everything for a nice tea was already on the table. Thank you Mary, we had a very good time at your property.
Great reception and all communication was spot on. Couldn't ask for more and entirely happy with our arrangement.
Absolutely beautiful cottage in a great location. It was clean and cosy and Mary was a very accommodating and welcoming. Would thoroughly recommend this gem of a place, both as a stepping stone to the beautiful surrounding countryside and to the lively pubs and restaurants in the nearby towns.
Mary and her house were great ! Mary met us at the house, showed us around and made us feel very welcome with bread, jam and tea upon our arrival. Can't wait to come back again next time we are in Ireland.
Mary was friendly and accommodating. She greeted us when we arrived with tea and went over any intricacies of the house. The house was in walking distance to town. It was comfortable and meet all of our needs. I would recommend Mary and the house to any traveler.
Loved our visit to this 200 year old Irish cottage, town is quaint and friendly . A warm welcome and a cup of tea from our host. Lovely area from which to see Cliffs of Moher and a trip to Ennis
Mary welcomed us with home baked bread, which was lovely. The Weavers Cottage is very well situated in the village with a great restaurant nearby- The Bakehouse, highly recommended. The Cliffs of Moher are very close and the cottage was a good base to explore the area from. Thanks for the stay Mary.
