“Fabulous, superb for families. Lovely house, spacious but cozy. Great for large family vacations, four good sized bathrooms and large bedrooms, all very well finished. Great kitchen and utility, huge garden. Lovely beach 600 m down the road, town 600 m the other way or a short drive. We loved the downstairs bathroom and bathrooms for the grandparents. Hosts extremely helpful and friendly.”- Claudine September 2018

“Fabulous house and fabulous stay. Beautiful house in a lovely location – all mod cons provided and owners (who live in the adjacent property) very helpful – we had a small problem with a blocked sink and they had a plumber out the same day to fix it. Cleggan a short walk away is a lovely little village with a harbour and I would recommend a visit to Olivers, one of the local pubs in the village with a view over the harbour and excellent food and traditional music a couple of times a week. if you want a home away from home in a wonderful part of Ireland I would highly recommend.”- Tom August 2018
