Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable ! Avis aux amateurs ! Si les grands espaces sauvages ne vous font pas peur, et que vous désirez vous plonger dans un univers où la nature est reine, alors nous vous recommandons ce cottage !
C'était magique !
An excellent base for seeing Connemara, without being too far from Galway. A warm welcome from John and we were left to settle in, enjoying the stunning views and warm woodburners. Plenty of space for four adults or two adults with older kids. Everything you need for a short stay.
Eine romantische Unterkunft, weit weg von Stress und Hektik, inmitten von Schafen und Natur. Ein Auto ist empfehlenswert, um überhaupt dorthin zu gelangen. Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen und verbrachten sehr schöne Tage, die uns gut in Erinnerung bleiben werden.
The location was absolutely beautiful. John had some great suggestions on drives to take - which we followed - much to our delight. Would absolutely return.
Super séjour dans un cadre fantastique ! Nous étions complètement dépaysé au coeur d'une région superbe.
We had a great time in this cosy, big and clean cottage in the middle of nowhere. We loved to heat the stoves with the self-made turf to make the house even more snugly. The place is the perfect spot to explore the huge private estate or whole connemara with its beautyful rough landscape. Kate and John were very nice and hospitable and the communication was perfect.
Very welcoming and friendly hosts for a lovely little cottage in beautiful surroundings! We had Fantastic time and would highly recommend for anyone who wants a bit of a country escape.
