Awesome place. Great location and a wonderful family. Very welcoming and ensured we were comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at John and Kate's country cottage. The country setting was comfortable, delightful, and homey. It was a delight to go on evening walks without leaving the premises. As city dwellers, it was fun watching the sheep and seeing the turf processed.
Kate nous avait prévenu que nous serions reçus par sa belle-soeur (étant en vacances à l'étranger), celle-ci nous a très bien accueilli , le logement correspondait parfaitement à la description et était bien au delà de ce à quoi nous nous attendions, très dépaysant, calme, et sympathique de se réveiller avec les moutons sous les fenêtres.
Logement propre et spacieux, nous avons appréciés le feu de cheminée à la tourbe ainsi que la belle collection de disques vinyle.
Malgré son absence Kate a été prévenante en nous envoyant un sms pour savoir si tout se passait bien lors de notre séjour.
Ce cottage dans le Connemara est un point de départ idéal pour les voyageurs aimant le calme. Vous y serez entourés de moutons, de tourbe que l'on retrouve dans les poêles. La vue est magnifique comme le reste de la région. Kate nous avait donné rendez-vous pour nous guider sur les derniers kilomètres et nous faire faire le tour du propriétaire.
We had a great stay at Kates cottage! Everthing was perfect and as mentioned. Thanks again, Kate!
My family and I had a lovely time in Kate's cottage. Upon arrival, we received a warm welcome from Kate who was very hospitable. The cottage is a great spot for tranquility and opportunities to explore Connemara. We also loved the fireplace that kept us warm throughout the stay. A perfect getaway location!
