- an evening catering for and entertaining a party of 14 extended family for a family reunion
- the father of a five year old reported spending an afternoon spent teaching his 5 year old son the basics of fishing at the river edge within 100 meters of the house. No fish were caught but a memorable evening was spent
- a lively family family barbeque dining al fresco in the sheltered L -shaped terrace
Guestbook comments from the owner
The house is bright and airy was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our holiday. We had three great indulgences!
Eating! This is a great house for entertaining - a well equiped and spacious kitchen and a great dining area overlooking the garden. As we have connections in the area we cooked for and entertained our family and friends - all 12 of them on one occassion - we dined in style.
Our other indulgence was the Seaweed Baths at Inniscrone, soaking in hot seawater baths with seaweed fresh from the Atlantic, just sit back and soak up the goodness - rejuvenation par excellence! Highly recommended.
Our last indulgence was lots of time spent in the huge first floor living room - the ideal antidote to the showery Irish weather ..... a browse through the eclectic book collection provided, a day spent ensconced in an easi-chair looking out over the treetops at Bartragh Island and beyond, a little reading, a little day-dreaming and suddenly its time for dinner. Days well spent!
Thank you for everthing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already planning our return
