and was very personable and lovely. She went out of her way to fill us in on the best restaurants sites to see and things of interest in Clifton and all around Connemara. She welcomed us with a bottle of wine and two wine glasses, which I thought was over and above, but deeply appreciate it, we were exhausted from traveling from southern Ireland to Connemara in one day. Her home was equipped with everything you needed for the first couple of days . Ann was charming. He will love this clean brand new cottage.- Patricia Ann August 2023
I met Ann, a very friendly and welcoming host, and always available to communicate. The house is newly renovated, it’s very clean and confortable. The equipments are new too and very good!
On top of that, Ann let some essential things in the kitchen: salt, pepper, café, pasta, rice, oil… and even a bottle of wine and chips. All is really great!
The salon is very cosy with the burning place, and Ann let us some wood to make fire. It’s one of the airbnb the nicest and the more confortable and cleanest I have ever seen.
For sure I will come back, thanks a lot Ann for all your attentions and your kindness! – Marie August 2023
