Home from Home
This beautiful cottage cannot be faulted - it is stepping into a home away from home. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Mary & her husband who kindly showed us all the important things around the cottage - from the heating, to the TV's, the fires and the lovely range cooker/heater. We loved the range. They had also bought us milk, butter, bread & even an apple pie. What a delight & so very thoughful. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch.
The rooms were all lovely & clean, & decorated to a high standard. The whole cottage is very homely, with lovely extras like toy area for the kids, heaters in the bedrooms and even electric blankets on the beds. A warm & welcome extra as it was quite cold whilst we were there in Ireland. The beds, pillows, duvets & extra throws make your nights peaceful & cosy.
If you have a family or just want the convenience of your own space - look no further this cottage has everything. Outdoor space too - so I can imagine lovely nights out in the garden in the summer. We will be back!
As the cottage is set back from the road it is so very peaceful & private. The cottage is only about a 5 minute drive to the local supermarket, bank & pub, then you have Tuam only 15 mins away & then Galway takes about 1 hour but with little traffic - getting anywhere is so pleasant.
Do not hesitate about booking this cottage - you will not be disappointed. We will most definately be back. Thank you Mary for our stay - we felt very welcomed & at home.

Great Little Hideaway!
We stayed here for a few days and were blown away by how lovely it was - don't think the pictures on the website do it justice. We liked the quirky layout. It was clean and tidy. The owners were so helpful, made us welcome and we soon settled in. We liked the traditional yet modern country feel to the interior of the cottage and the views are lovely.
We spent a day in Westport (great for kids) and a day in Galway City- loved the buzz! We would most definitely recommend this property and will be back again.
Thank you for your review - this is our first venture into holiday letting and your positive comments are really appreciated.

Spacius rooms and kitchen, and lovely living rooms with fireplace.

Thank you Mary.
Thanks for the kind review. It was a pleasure hosting your family and thanks again for leaving the property so clean and tidy.
Lovely, comfortable and stylish cottage.
Nous avons passé une formidable semaine dans ce gîte!
Les propriétaires Mary et John ont été très accueillants.
Tout est fait pour que l'on se sente à l'aise.
Leur maison est très bien aménagée, très propre, décorée avec beaucoup de goût et spacieuse. Il y a aussi un grand jardin avec des jeux à disposition pour les enfants notamment.
L'environnement est très reposant. Quelques balades sont possibles aux alentours (à quelques minutes à pieds ou en voiture).
On trouve à Dunmore, le village situé à seulement 5 minutes en voiture, les principales commodités (supermarché, poste, station essence, restaurants...).
La situation géographique du gîte nous a permis de visiter Galway et ses alentours mais aussi le Connemara et la côte aux environs de Ballycastle.
Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ce séjour!
It was a pleasure hosting Ingrid, Oliver and their children. They were excellent guests.
The house was left clean and tidy and they were respectful and thoughtful.
They are a lovely family and we would certainly love to host them again in the future.
