Irish Gem

  • 5 of 5
Dove Cottage is a real Gem. it was just as described, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Miriam and David had provided everything you could need, including all the essentials on arrival - milk, bread, tea, coffee - and Guiness! very welcoming after a long journey from North Yorkshire, and problems with the car which David and Miriam very kindly helped us out with.
John had particularly been attracted to Lough Corrib for the fishing. David looked after him and found him a local Gillie. It was Mayfly time and over the weekend there was a fishing festival in Oughterard, with a competition and a fabulous fish supper in one of the pubs. There is everything you need in Oughterard which is only a few minutes drive and everyone is so friendly. If you are not in to fishing, there are plenty of other things to do, and Dove Cottage is so peaceful and relaxing, with a lovely walk down to the Lough just across the road.
We will definitely return as the week went too quickly!

What a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
We are a family, with two kids ages 5 and 7 and we had a wonderful time. The place is exactly as described, very clean, very comfortable, very cute and decorated with love. The children had the upstairs bedroom which is spacious, so that they had enough room to play as the kitchen-living-room are rather small. There is a huge garden, with a long swing in a tree and lots of things for the children to discover and pass the time. Also only a five minute walk down to the lake, where you can go swimming or fishing. The area is very quiet, so the best place to relax from a stressful job. Also a good starting point for many excursions as the sea is only 1hr, Connemara Ntl.Park even less. A MTB trail more or less behind the house as well. Bars and restaurants 15minuntes by bike.
The hosts provided us with all the information we needed. They were wonderful and really made us feel welcome and at home. Especially the children who learned lots of English with David, who again didn't mind their helping hands when it came to watering the garden (or the cars).
We would recommend this place to everybody who seeks a calm retreat with the possibilities to outdoor activities (hiking, cycling, MTB, fishing, swimming) and sightseeing and good food.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to have this family come and stay with us. The children were the most mannerly children we have ever had the pleasure to meet. We had great times and they played and looked after our 3 year old granddaughter who we had stay with us for a few days.

Thank your for your kind words.

Dove Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was an outstanding cottage set in the most beautiful location and kept to a very high standard. The decor was just gorgous and would definitely return. The NICEST touch was having the "essentials" - bread,milk,tea, coffee on arrival and soo appreciated. David could not have been more helpful in terms of ensuring we were comfortable, updating us about Oughterard. Would say this property is more suitable for the OVER 40 bracket in terms of approximity to local town! What truly amazed me was THE QUALITY of the furnishings and THANK YOU for that. We will most definitely return.
