Wonderful stay in Killaloe. Abi and John's home was perfectly located with beautiful views. The flat was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and spacious, perfect for our family of three adults and one child. 15 mins easy walk from good pubs and restaurants - can highly recommend The Wooden Spoon for lunch! Great location for touring around Clare and the adjoining counties and staying on the River Shannon was a bit of a revelation. Found a couple of lovely playgrounds for our daughter too! Abi was really helpful and had thought of everything we might need in the apartment, gave great recommendations and contact was very easy. Would love to stay here again!
Wonderful first Airbnb experience at Abby and John's apartment. Abby was a wonderful host, friendly and helpful, provided lots of suggestions for local activities prior to our arrival. Apartment was clean and had beautiful views of the waterfront, an easy stroll into Killaloe. We hope to return again in the future and would highly recommend this rental.
Had a lovely time in Killaloe while staying with our 3 kids in Abigail & Johns Waterfront Apartment. The apartment was ideal for our children, with toys books & DVDs provided. They loved it! We had a lovely view of the boats docked in the harbour & were within walking distance of shops, playground & restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here, especially if like us you have a young family. We will definitely be back.
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.
About the Host, John & Abigail
We have 3 boys under 11! 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.
