Perfect Stay – We had a brilliant stay in mid-October. We were two small families staying for a long weekend and it kicked off very smoothly. We arrived to a warm house with a very welcome bottle of wine (thank you!). The town is a short walk or drive from the house with great food spots to dine in or takeaway. The house also had every food and cleaning gadget needed and all recycling options too. Very clean and easy to keep clean. We’d also forgotten to request a high chair which was supplied to us promptly without fuss, so thanks again!
The view from the living room/ kitchen/ garden is spectacular and we’re looking forward to seeing what it’s like in summer, as it’s beautiful in autumn. We think this will be a house we visit often now, can’t fault it, we had a blast.- William Oct 2021

Great and comfortable house in an unique location. We had a great stay. Very comfortable furniture not usual in a holiday home.

We had a lovely family stay at Loch An Eala. The views from the house are stunning and everything you’d need for a comfortable stay is included. Clifden is a short drive or walk away and there is a lovely greenway path for walking very close to the house. Lots to do in the surrounding area for little ones – both human and furry!
