It was a beautiful stay. The house is lovely, the horses behind very friendly, I have nothing to say, it was perfect!
The cottage was just right for us. Even the fire was lit before we arrived. It feels like a very well kept and loved house. Beautifully clean and lovely location. Our two girls loved the neighbouring horses. The house is just on the edge of Doolin with the best pubs and food and ferries to Aran Islands.
The stay was lovely. The accommodations were very nice, and the locals in nearby Doolin were very friendly. We loved our stay and would definitely visit again.
