Dynamic outgoing person, extremely friendly and flexible. I have a huge love for the water. My favourite place in the world is south Thailand.
Great place, the house is lovely and spacious, would definitely recommend it!
Thank you Maria
Everything was cool and as per description, however host requested additional €200 after stay for cigarette ash that he allegedly found (no smoking ever happened in a house), professional carpet cleaning (no carpet was stained), spillage on tiles, dry cleaning of curtains (mind you cleaning charge was included in a price) and for neighbors complaint about fitting (exact word used) outside house at night time (we did not fit anything, didn't even fight for that matter). Taking all that in count I don't think we will back in Ivan's house!
P.S. I had to settle for €100 for curtains dry cleaning
We had a fab break. Ivan & Martina were so helpful, nothing is a problem.
We ordered a takeaway on Saturday night and it was delivered up to us for €2! The little shop, Cathy's was quaint and the ladies couldn't be more helpful. If you are looking for a break, away from all the stresses of life.... this is definitely the place to go.
A great little house in a marvellous setting right on the river. There is a great wood burner in the property which would be very cosy on a chilly evening.
Positives - Excellent size house, setting was quiet which was exactly what we were after. Catered for our 2 year old with cot and stair gate too. Hosts came and met us in Belturbet and were very welcoming
Negatives - seemed to have a wasp problem, killed about 15 in the house over the 4 days. Back garden was a bit disappointing, needed grass cut so we couldn't really use it.
Overall enjoyable stay!
Une personne est venue a notre rencontre,Martina pour nous presenter le cottage bien equipped.
A lovely stay overall, however when we arrived no one was expecting us as our booking was not passed on. We were helped by another resident in the area who put us in contact with the host who came down to put fresh sheets on the beds and a quick clean. The cleaner was more than apologetic for the delay caused at that time of night. The neighbours gave us milk for the youngest child staying with us.
Despite this initial issue we went on to have a lovely stay in a beautiful house with plenty to do with the young children.
The house is really lovely and it accommodated everyone really nicely. The kids really enjoyed the bunk beds. We didn't get to meet Ivan but everything was arranged that we had someone to call incase of an emergency. Would love to stay again if in the area!
Foalies Bridge is a wonderful location right on the water. The property is very safe and is secured by an automatic gate. The house is spacious and comfortable. Alan and Martina were very responsive when we found the washer/dryer combo unit did not dry and had the unit replaced. Alan was very responsive both in working out the details for our stay and any time we had questions. We loved our time at Foalies Bridge and would definitely stay again if we have the opportunity to return to Ireland.
Alan and Martina were great hosts. They were very responsive to questions, checked in with us regularly, and made us feel at home. The house was well laid out, with enough rooms and beds for our large group. The kitchen was well set up, so we were able to do meals at home. The setting was beautiful - with a river, cows, sheep, and the rolling countryside just outside our window.
