We have recently had the most wonderful experience staying at Inish Rua, in the quaint little village of Clonbur, County Galway.
There are a combination of things that make a great Airbnb experience, and Inish Rua ticked every box.
Laura was brilliant in the arranging the booking and the communication between us was excellent. We found her to be most diligent and she tended to our requests with utmost efficiency. Laura looks after the bookings and
her parents Peter and Sandra are your hosts during your stay.
Peter and Sandra are the most welcoming and wonderful hosts that you could wish for. They had a wonderful starter pack of bread, butter, milk, eggs, juice etc and most importantly some wine ( Australian of course) waiting for us on our arrival.
They attended to our requirements in a first class manner, and were lovely to deal with. We had a hiccup with the WIFI and they put aside a function they were attending to come over and contact the service provider to sort out the issues and get the WIFI up and running again. This was done without fuss and fanfare and proved their dedication towards customer service.
The property itself is just fantastic. It is extremely peaceful, and beautifully appointed. Renovated to a high standard, it's easy to step straight in and enjoy your stay. With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, there is plenty of space and privacy for everyone. The kitchen and bathrooms are all newly renovated. The rear sunroom is a beautiful space to relax and enjoy the peaceful surrounds.
The house is only 500 metres from the centre of the village of Clonbur, and there you will find a couple of great pubs, restaurants and a supermarket. The locals are great fun. Only a short drive to the beautiful village of Cong and many more villages in the area.
After eight weeks on the road through Europe and the UK, if I had my chance to go back to anywhere, I would go back to Inish Rua.
Do yourself a favour and book a stay with Laura, Peter and Sandra. You won't regret it.
Laura was an absolute pleasure to have in our home! She was incredibly easy to communicate with in the weeks before her stay, and she knows the ins and outs of Airbnb stays well, as a host herself. She and her guests were incredibly clean and respectful of our home and we would welcome them back anytime!
