Fantastic place and excellent hosts! Abigail and John were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the process. John met us late on Boxing Day evening at the apartment at our request, and had prepared a candlelit festive themed welcome spread, which was an absolute delight after our long haul flight!
He showed us where everything was and how things worked, and had given consideration to the fact we were coming from a warm climate to a cold one, ensuring we understood the heating and providing additional blankets-not that they were needed - the place was wonderfully toasty and cosy. We immediately felt at home and were settled in quickly.
The place itself is, unbelievably, even better than in the pictures! And perfectly located, within an easy walk of Killaloe and all the fabulous pubs, coffee shops and general quaintness we love Ireland for :)
We can't wait to go back!
We are John and Abigail. We have 3 boys under 10! We realised pretty quickly that we no longer fit in a hotel room and came across by chance to Airbnb. Seems like an excellent idea. We work for ourselves providing Six Sigma Black Belt training to companies in Ireland and around the world. We love visiting new places and love a bit of 'ad hoc' adventure. Hope you like our Harbour View apartment in Killaloe. We find it truly relaxing as do our guests. After a day you'll seem to literally "slow down". I think its because the apt is very low maintenance and easy to get comfy quickly. You can walk to Killaloe or Ballinas shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, playgrounds (outdoor swimming pool 25 degrees in summer months or to the waterfront to just sit and watch the world go by or maybe fish. We have a folder full of ideas of activities and places of interest to visit if you feel like it. Get in touch and I'll fill you in.
