Martina, John, Ben & Karen are very warm, kind and welcoming family who greeted us with tea, cake and great chats upon arrival in their home! Dobby the lovely doggy helped us find our way! We spent one night in the Stone Stable and it was just perfect. The place was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and designed! The most comfy bed ever with soft duvet and pillows! Breakfast the next morning was so yummy and plentiful with fresh fruit from the garden also! Was a very relaxing and peaceful place to get away from the city surrounded by beautiful the country landscape, along with the horses & chickens! Would recommend Martinas place to anyone looking for a relaxing and unique country experience! Hopefully we'll be back some day. Thanks again! Aoife & Seán Dublin xx

What a great experience- the house was wonderful and so was Martina and John. This was quite the trip, our only downside was that we could only stay one night.

Martina's place is perfect for a relaxing stay in West Ireland. The cottage is spacious and clean. The bed is very comfortable. The best part is getting to know the hosts.

We had such a wonderful time at the stone stable. It was such a beautifully decorated place to stay and felt warm and cozy! The family dog, Dobby, is so friendly and greeted us upon our arrival. We enjoyed walking around the lot and seeing the chickens and beautiful horses. Martina was not in town during our stay, however she made sure to communicate everything clearly to us and her sister, Yvonne, came to check in on things. Yvonne was fantastic and had breakfast ready in the morning for us. We spent a long time talking with her over coffee and felt very welcomed! I highly recommend this place. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience!
