The house was amazing. The house was well set up and had plenty of hot water! Board games were handy for the kids too. Sean and his family were fabulous, and helped us with everything from lighting the fire to suggestions for activities in the area. We had a lovely stay, thanks Sean.
logement fonctionnel-nous étions 6 personnes et pas du tout à l'étroit-on est vraiment dans la campagne irlandaise
Très bonne accueil de Sean, toujours prêt à rendre notre séjour agréable.
Feu de tourbe allumé à notre retour de randonnée le soir à l'heure du repas : vraiment sympa.
ci siamo sentiti a casa fin da subito. Sean, nonostante il momento emotivo che stava vivendo con suo padre in fin di vita, è stato un host perfetto e premuroso. La casa è meravigliosa, in ordine, pulitissima e accogliente.un'esperienza davvero emozionante!
Sean greeted us kindly and showed us around his lovely Old Stone Loft. The kitchen is enormous and would work very well for a family. The highlight is the fire that Sean prepares. We loved coming home from driving around to such a warm and welcoming sight.
This was a lovely place and we were thrilled to have the chance to visit. Stephanie had a fire waiting for us and sent a friend to meet us when we lost our way. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped. I'd stay here forever if I could! The location was ideal for day trips to Galway and the cliffs of Moher. Thanks for a lovely visit!
My 2 sisters and I stayed a few nights in this lovely cottage and enjoyed visiting Westport & Newport along with a nice bike ride. The cottage is roomy and very charming. We had a few challenges figuring out the hot water because we thought Sean was giving us directions for the heat system not the hot water tanks....our mistake.
The only comment we can make is the kitchen may need a few more gadgets if you plan to do much cooking. Other than that we really enjoyed it and the Pub down the road was a perfect walk at the end of the evening. Thanks to Sean and his wife for sharing their little slice of great Irish countryside.
