Spectacular Home!

  • 5 of 5

Hard to find words to describe how wonderful this property is. Mask Cottage is a misnomer--this is a magnificent, beautifully decorated home, complete with high end appliances, including a wine cooler, a full working sauna, and enough room for a very large family. But best of all, every square inch of it was immaculate! Not only were the living areas pristine, even the cupboards and closets were spotless. We've never stayed in such luxurious quarters. The owners were helpful and welcoming, and responded immediately to any questions we had. Situated on a hill above Lough Mask, the "cottage" was secluded and private, yet convenient to the attractions of the beautiful Connemara region. My wife and I, along with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson spent the most wonderful week ever in this gorgeous home.

Beautiful & spacious cottage. Inviting & comfortable, we made ourselves at home & made use of the many amenities. We enjoyed coming "home" each night to cook dinner or have a snack before bed. We felt safe & rested well. Although usually tired by the end of the day, we did enjoy the beautiful sauna at least once. We happened to have pretty good weather during our week in Ireland & the views of Lough Mask were picturesque. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace & quiet of the landscape dotted with colorful sheep. The flower boxes were lovely, was well as the manicured lawn. Many artful & thoughtful touches around the home made us feel welcome & special. Thank-you for the gift & allowing us to stay in your wonderful cottage!

einfach nur Traumhaft...

  • 5 of 5

Das schönste Ferienhaus das wir je hatten. Es hat den Charme eines alten, liebevoll restaurierten Cottages, sehr gepflegt und top ausgestattet. Umso überraschter waren wir als uns der Vermieter erzählte das er das Haus erst Anfang der 2000er gebaut hat. Ein nettes Vermieterehepaar das immer erreichbar war und sich um alle unsere Fragen gekümmert hat - nochmals liebe Grüße an dieser Stelle.

Die Lage mit Blick über den See und einem schönen Hinterland ist klasse und lädt zu kleineren Wanderungen direkt von der Haustüre aus ein. Der kleine Ort Clonbur hat alles Notwendige, vor allem Pub`s mit gutem Essen (Burke`s Pub und Restaurant ). Auch für Ausflüge entlang der irischen Westküste

( Conemara Nationalpark, Burren, Cliffs of Mohar... ) ein guter Ausgangspunkt.

Insgesamt ein traumhafter Urlaub mit großem Erholungsfaktor

2016/04 - sightseeing trip wonderful area. Surrounded from lake with green islands and

mountains. Everything in the house is perfect: very clean, nice rare

rugs and tasteful furnishings. The view is stunning.


Many thanks to the friendly home owner.

Ohne Kompromisse!

  • 5 of 5

Ein Topgepflegtes Haus ohne Kompromisse!

Wir können uns nur all den positiven Bewertungen anschliessen.

Das Preis - Leistungsverhältnis für so ein großzügiges Anwesen ist mehr als gerechtfertigt. Ein sehr gepflegtes und sauberes Feriendomizil in schöner Lage. Sehr empfehlenswert!!!!

Wenn man bedenkt, daß ein normales Hotel für 2 Pers. schon über 100,. Euro pro Nacht kostet und bei weitem nicht so viel zu bieten hat.

Herzlichen Dank an Lydia und Berthold Grosse für die wunderschöne Zeit.

Wir kommen mit Sicherheit wieder.
