fun in Galway
The villa was clean and very charming. The location was a bit of a challenge to get to, but so worth when we arrived. Finola was lovely and very helpful. I had emailed a couple times before we left for Ireland to confirm our reservation and unfortunately those went unanswered. All in all a wonderful stay! thank you!
Loved Finola and the cottage.
We had a great stay. Finola couldn't have been nicer to us. She even took my mom to the store when I ended up with food poisoning. She goes above and beyond as a host.
Loved this Private Estate
The stay was beautiful. Everything about the property is amazing. Walked down the trail to a field full of sheep and went into the horse corral to be greeted by horses that come up and let you pet them. Great hospitality
Peaceful and historic setting
We had a lovely stay at Lisdonagh courtyard villa. Located in a beautiful, rural and historic setting and a great base for day trips exploring Galway. The villa was comfortable, clean and well set up. Great accommodation in a beautiful setting.
Very nicehouse, room for family of 4, . Property was beautiful, plenty of sheep and horses for picture taking. Safrin the dog was such a cuddly pup and greeted everyone with his happy wagging tail, overall great stay.
If you want peace and quiet, and a bit of luxery ,well this is the place to go. Decor was beautiful and Finola was an excellent hostess with a wealth of knowledge to the surrounding area. She showed us around and nothing was a bother to her.
