“Honeysuckle lodge is a great location being so close to Clifden. We were a party of 9. Adults & children & it suited all with amply parking etc,. Virtually a home from home”- Siobhan June 2016
“The cottage was beautiful and fit our requirements perfectly. We were very comfortable there. It was a short walk to Clifden, so well located. The owner, who lived in another cottage on the property was very friendly and helpful. The cooking facilities and other appliances were very good. The layout of the cottage was also excellent, with four good sized bedrooms and four bathrooms (two ensuite). There is a large kitchen/ family room where we spent most of our time eating, drinking, singing and talking. We would definitely stay there again” – Terry December 2013
