Other Things to Note

El apartamento está situado a diez minutos a pie del centro. Todo está bien, nuevo por dentro y bien cuidado. El único inconveniente es que de las dos camas individuales, una es supletoria muy baja y con un colchón muy delgado, bastante incómoda para dormir 12 días seguidos. A lo mejor para un fin de semana no importa, pero no para estancias largas. La cocina estaba bien, pero sólo había una sartén!
Por lo demás, el apartamento bien y muy limpio. Abigail fue encantadora, nos dio una cálida bienvenida y nos tenía leche, zumo y unos dulces. La zona es muy tranquila para el que busque descanso.
Abygail ha sido encantadora!! Nos recibio muy afectuosamente y nos explico varias cosas que hacer en la zona!!
La casa es perfecta!!!
Mil gracias Abygail!!!
We had a lovely time at Abby's apartment, the apartment itself was excellent and was everything we were looking for.
Killaloe was a great base for exploring the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, we also had a great day out at Bunratty Castle.
Thank you very much, Abby! You made the whole process very pleasant and were always reachable. The appartment was bright, clean and provided everything we needed. The scones you kindly put on the kitchentable were just delicious and made us feel even more welcome. Thanks again for making our first use with Airbnb and our first stay in Ireland such a good experience. All the best from bavaria and greetings to Killaloe.
We visited Abigail's lovely lakeside apartment for a long weekend. We were delighted to find a cosy, very spacious apartment when myself, my boyfriend and our 2 friends arrived. Abigail was so helpful and friendly, not only giving us tips for the good places to eat and drink in the neighbouring towns but also providing scones and milk for tea. The walk to Killaloe and Ballina was so lovely. It is a really idyllic lakeside apartment. Unfortunately as the weather was very wet we did not get a chance to enjoy the activities on the lake, however this did not dampen our spirits as there was lots of CDs and DVDs to keep us entertained. I will definitely be recommending this apartment and hope to return in the future!
We received a great welcome from Abby with fresh home made scones with raspberry jam & butter, thank you they were delicious. Lots of other essentials such as tea & coffee,fresh milk and orange juice supplied, all nice touches that go to make a stay very special.
The apartment is very comfortable, well heated, nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen and in a good location just out of town but easy walk or short drive into the village. The scenery is spectacular with lots of interesting short easy drives to neighboring villages or for family research which was what brought us to Killaloe. The tourist information centre on the bridge was especially helpful as were all the other locals in supermarkets and pubs to whom we spoke, thanks to them all.
The only think we missed was having wi-Fi to enable planning for onward travel, it seems to be a must these days if organizing a trip oneself but other than that we thought the apartment was fabulous, thanks again to Abby & John from Sue and Des from Western Australia.
The apartment was fantastic. We had a brilliant weekend here. The place was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. There were lots of books, movies and toys for our daughter. The apartment was spacious and suitable for families. We lacked nothing. It was cozy warm and quiet with a fabulous view of the harbour. Abby greeted us at the apartment with tea and scones. She also left essentials in the fridge. I highly recommend her apartment and will definitely be back! Well done Abby
About the Host, Abigail
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 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 26 degrees in summer months or to the waterfront to just sit and watch the world go by, 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.
