House was stunning and as described. Host was there to meet us on arrival and had a beautiful fire lit. House was cosy & warm and most welcoming. Couldn't recommend Sean & the cottage highly enough
The Stone Cottage provided everything we hoped for and more. Sean was an exceptional host who went above and beyond for us prior to us arriving as well as when we got there. He personally took us to a boat hire connection as he knew fishing was something we wanted to do. He took time from his evening to welcome us and make sure we were comfortable and familiar with the area. Not to mention the fire in the woodstove he had going when we arrived.
The accommodations were very cozy, and warming and provided the old world charm of Ireland.
The cows greeted us as we pulled up and welcomed our stay the whole time. We had everything we needed in the cottage and much more. I would definitely recommend staying if you want to visit the lakes region. Thanks again for a great stay!
Sean was great, had the turf fire going as soon as we came in, and then left us to our own devices! The place was everything we hoped for, was warm, cozy, and the perfect place to fall back to after a long day of touring the area.
What a wonderful stay. Sean met us right away and showed us around. A beautiful stone cottage with a fire roaring for us when we arrived on a chilly Irish day. A bit out of the way, but worth it. The cottage was lovely and well prepared for us.
We arrived about 3 hours later than what I had told Sean because we were stopping and admiring the view around nearly every corner so I was getting ready to say some apologies but Sheila didn't have a word to say about our lateness, she was more than accommodating to show us in and also to then just leave us in peace. The shop was so so handy if there was anything we needed quick/forgotten but equally we were told we could knock on Sean&Sheilas door if there was anything we needed! Great day trip into Castlebar but mostly it was nice to stay out in the peaceful house with our great turf stove and the board games that were supplied! When we are in need of another quiet weekend, we'll be back! Thank you very much xo
It was a brilliant loft for our vacation. Everything turned out to be exactly as described. All photos on the platform showed the house as it was: cosy, warm, perfect.
Sean lit a fire for us every day and was helpful and kind to answer all questions we had.
I wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone looking for a relaxing time in rural Mayo!
