We were a family of 3 doing a road trip of Ireland and our stay in Michael's cottage was great! Very quiet and relaxing and the animals were a great addition to the stay. Michael was a great host as well as helpful with any information we needed, and flexible with us extending our stay, after we got arrived! Thanks for a great relaxing experience, I hope we get a chance to visit again some day.
