“Lovely bright clean holiday cottage which suited our needs perfectly. Kitchen has all mod cons, and living area very comfortable. Couldn’t get Saorview on TV which was frustrating. I also found the single bed in the smallest room extremely hard and uncomfortable, obviously firmness of mattress is personal taste, but this was lumpy also. However, all in all , we enjoyed our stay and were well provided for. We would come again! – Bairbre April 2022
