About this listing
A cosy 2 bedroom rural cottage, close to Knock Airport with all modern conveniences including WiFi. Two lovely donkeys will welcome you to the cottage!
Are you looking for a quiet, relaxing break in the countryside in the West of Ireland? Rustic, but with all modern conveniences? Then look no further!!
Frank's Cottage is a traditionally styled cottage but modernised to make your stay comfortable and welcoming! The sitting room is the heart of this home with wood panelled high ceilings and the wood burning stove - heated with turf from our own bog! You enter the smaller of the two bedrooms from here - with its two single beds this room still maintains the traditional feel. From the sitting room you enter the modern country kitchen with seating for 6 and a fully equipped kitchen. While having your breakfast, you can look out into the fields and watch the donkeys playing! The Double bedroom is accessed through the kitchen and this is a large room with plenty of wardrobe space and room for an extra single bed or toddler bed (upon request). The utility room connects the kitchen with both the back door and the large shower room (with electric shower). There is a washer/dryer in the utility room as well as cleaning supplies.
The cottage is located in a quiet, rural area, 5 miles from the neighbouring towns of Charlestown and Ballaghaderreen. Sometimes the only noise is the sound of farm animals and birds chirping!
There is no public transit within walking distance, so a car is a very good idea.
One of the best loved aspects about Frank's Cottage are the two very friendly donkeys who are sure to give you a big, warm welcome!
We normally try to greet our guests but because our check in is flexible we may not always be home ( or awake!) when guests arrive. We will have as much or as little contact depending on what each guests want! We live next door to the property
We love our pets and do try to facilitate guests who wish to bring their pets on their holiday. We will consider your pets, as long as you agree that they do not enter the bedrooms and are housetrained. Please let us know that you would like to bring a pet. An extra cleaning fee of €25 per week or €5 per night is added to cover the cost of cleaning, as we want to make sure that the cottage is pet hair/smell free for our next guests who may or may not be pet lovers!

I love the peace and quiet! There is a small river at the back of the house and lots of fields where the donkeys and horse graze.

Hello and welcome to Franks Cottage! Running the cottage is a family affair. We are a separated couple who work together on the cottage to help put our children through college. I work from a distance with the bookings, communications and websites, etc while Seamus is next door and makes sure the cottage is sparkling clean and maintained, greeting guests when not at work and is available for any questions which arise.
This cottage is part of Seamus' family homeplace and has been in his family for over 200 years!! We think it is a great place to stay and hope you agree1
I've added a few things to the cottage that I couldn't live without - WiFi, Books, warm fire and Tv/Dvd!!
I love to travel and experience new things. My goal is to go someplace new every year or to see something that I haven't seen before.
