A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Green Acres is everything and more than the description. It is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a large kitchen that also features a stove for burning peat for warmth (if you don't want to use the electric heaters)...which really added to making our stay cozy and intimate. Catherine also had freshly baked (and scrumptious)scones awaiting our arrival and offered milk, sugar, etc. but we had come prepared. The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The two bathrooms are large, one with a nice big bathtub. There is a cabinet in the kitchen that is bursting with information brochures on adventures to be had and regions of interest, and Catherine and Martin will give you a wonderful list of must do's that are not featured in your guide books. Each morning we were greeted my Ellie and Jimmy Bob, the mule and donkey, and Phoebe the fearless jack russell, which was a lovely start to each morning. The region is stunning for its geography and incredible history. But, what made Green Acres feel like a home away from home were Catherine, Martin, and their wonderful hospitality. Thank you so much!

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Greenacres, from the moment we arrived to the lovely smell of a traditional peat fire prepared by our host Catherine to when we sadly had to return home the following weekend. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed, with gorgeous views across the countryside from both sides of the house. It has a private garden with table and chairs provided - perfect for dining outside on a balmy summer evening. The secluded garden is next to a field inhabited by the farm donkeys Jimbob and Ellie who along with Rosie the mare and her foal, were regular visitors for feeding and stroking by our daughters.
Inside, the cottage is a cosy blend of traditional and modern, but is well equipped with all the mod cons you could need (along with plenty of DVDs, books and games to keep everyone entertained on those occasional rainy days).
Catherine, her husband Martin and their family all live nearby on the farm and are always available for a chat if you need help or advice on where to visit, but they're never intrusive and leave you alone to get on and enjoy your holiday.
The cottage is 3 miles from Ballinrobe, which is a nice town with plenty of shops, bars, and supermarkets (Centra, Supervalu and Tesco) - we had a particularly nice chinese meal at Yangs which was excellent value for money. 5 miles further afield is the beautiful village of Cong and the stunning Ashford Castle hotel, which is situated by Lough Corrib and well worth the viewing. We had an excellent evening meal at Lydon's in Cong and a drink of the black stuff in the Ryan's Hotel bar (especially on a music night) is recommended. It was also nice to see that Cohan's Bar, prominently featured in 'The Quiet Man' has been restored to it's original 1950s glory.
The tourist haven of Westport is a very pleasant 30 minute drive away and a few miles further afield is the holy mountain of Croagh Patrick and the quiet, beautiful and clean beaches of Old Head and Carrowmore on Clew Bay.
Our family had a really enjoyable holiday at Greenacres - it's an ideal place for families to stay, and since we came home, we've been more than happy to recommend it to friends and family as well.

Fantastic welcoming cottage in awesome countryside

  • 5 of 5
Amazing cottage in beautiful scenery. Horses and donkeys to welcome us as well as the most amazing couple - Catherine and Martin were friendly, helpful, hospitable and always on hand for chat or advice. Cottage was ideal for our family and the beautiful weather meant we were truly spoiled with breakfast and evenings in garden and lots of places to visit. A most relaxing, unwinding holiday for us all and one cottage we would be keen to return to again and again.
Thank you for everything!

Totally recommended

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 3-year-old daughter, plus my brother and his family (wife and two little girls) decided to spend our holidays in Ireland last year. We spent a month surfing on the web, trying to find the right house and, to be honest, we felt a bit scared because the price was pretty low in comparison to other properties in the area. What we found was a lovely house, surrounded by beautiful scenery and superbly located near Conemara, fully equipped with all the comforts of a home, immaculately well-kept and run by Martin and Catherine, who manage to be nice, kind, caring, attentive and willing-to-help without intruding into guests’ privacy. We truly enjoyed our holidays, not only because we love Ireland, but also because we made the right choice. Thank you, Catherine and Martin, for our great stay at your house.

Great location to visit Connemara

  • 5 of 5
Great Location. Wonderful place to visit Connemara. We felt at home. Better than home.
Thank you Martin and Catherine for your great hospitality. We traveled all the day to visit your beautiful country but we couldn't not wait to come home again in the evening to enjoy the delight to stay in your cottage.
Thank you Martin for the nice evening in the pub listening to your good irish music!
We really hope to come again in Liskillen.
Thank you.
