What a wonderful experience to have met Martina n her family; including Doby! Staying in their cottage and spending time w them were one of the highlights of the trip. Martina took the time to plan the trip for us as we sat down to a wonderful bfast. The entire place is extremely clean and surroundings are beautiful. When we had to leave, we were sad to say goodbye. It was as if we were leaving family. We are definitely recommending their B&B to our friends and looking forward to returning!!

Martina's accommodation was beautiful. It exceeded my expectations. It was the prefect place to relax after a busy day in Galway. The place was spotless with a beautiful bed and bathroom. As there was no kitchen facilities in the accommodation Martina and her husband John provided a great breakfast that set us up for the day.

If my husband and I could give more than 5 stars we definitely would! Martina and John are both incredible people and very sociable. Martina provided a delicious breakfast each morning and helped us make our trip to Ireland the best it could be. The renovated stable was beautiful and comfortable.

Our stay in Martina's cottage turned out to be the best part of our trip to Ireland. The cottage was in a small lovely town, and although its in the countryside, main locations like Galway and the Cliffs of Moher are just a drive away. The area is scenic and the accommodations were clean, beautiful and cozy. The stay was made that much better by our great hosts who were more than helpful in providing directions to Galway, activities around the area, and bikes to go on a search for a castle in the woods. Our stay with Martina was way too short, and a definite must for anyone wishing to settle in the Irish countryside on holiday.

Martina and John are fantastic hosts. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. Martina was kind enough to sit with us and look at a map. She gave us some great suggestions on what to see and do for the rest of our trip and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Highly recommend!
