Very comfortable room in a very peaceful area. Luisa and her family, especially her mom, Rosario, were lovely to deal with.
Luisa made us feel very welcome and was a fantastic host. She was great fun to talk to and her breakfast was lovely. Her house is in a great spot just down the road from Cloghan Castle where we attended a wedding. She even took the time to drop me down to the castle in the morning to collect my car!
Luisa is a great host who was a pleasure to chat with, and the house is picturesque. The rooms are splendid and was all round a fantastic experience, would definitely recommend staying a few nights to enjoy rural Ireland.
I had a lovely stay at Luisa's house. Very easy to find and only a 5 min drive to Loughrea. Had a great breakfast every morning, big room, comfortable bed and an ensuite. Plenty of parking for those with cars and pretty fast wifi as well :) Would recommend it 100%
I am a laid back person. I enjoy people coming to the house. Its a very laid back type of house we live in. I like to let people feel at home when they stay at my place.
