My husband, two elementary school-aged daughters and I spent far too short a time with the Concannons (and their horse, foal, Irish ass, cows, dogs, and etc.) on our recent trip to the west coast of Ireland. If we would have known how spit spot and cozy the cottage was, how incredibly welcoming the hosts would be, and how stunning the landscapes of Connamara we would have maxed out our vacation time and stayed even longer. The kids were thrilled start to finish with the fun of the farm, and the adults -- warming by the turf-burning stove and looking out on green pastures-- felt well taken care of. Highly, highly recommended.

Awesome holiday!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family , 4 adults and two under 4's had a great holiday time here. House perfect location, lovely enclosed garden for children to play safely. Beautiful house and rooms were lovely. Hosts were Martin and Catherine, lovely friendly people always there for a chat or tourist info. Great location

As only 5 min drive from town with large supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, bakery, hairdressers, take aways. Play ground and river walk. Would highly revommend for couple or family with kids

A perfect place to relax in Ireland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three days in this cottage. The house was very clean, fully equiped, and perfect to stay with children (our party size was eight with four childs under nine). They were absolutely delighted with the animals (specially Jimmy and Rosy) so as the adults were with our kindly hosts, Catherine and Martin. They made their best to make our holidays even better if possible.

Belle et grande maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé trois jours très agréables dans cette grande maison, bien équipée et très bien située pour visiter le Connemara, le comté de Mayo et Galway. Nous avons eu le plaisir d'aller voir le propriétaire jouer de la musique irlandaise dans un pub à Cong ( lieu de tournage de " l'homme tranquille"), nous chauffer à la tourbe et nourrir l'äne et le cheval. Nous conseillons la visite de l'abbaye Ross Errily et bien sûr, les pubs! Nous conseillons la maison quand il ne fait pas trop froid car le chauffage électrique est payant au delà d'un certain forfait. Pour nous, le chauffage à bois a largement suffi. Un plus, le salon cinéma et les deux salles de bain, pratiques pour cette maison ce sept personnes.

Wonderful stay in Ballinrobe, County Mayo

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time during our week stay at Catherine and Martin Concannon's rental cottage. Catherine and Martin are wonderful hosts. Always very helpful and Catherine gave us so many great suggestions on what to see. The house is beautiful! Very clean and spacious, there were only two of us but this house could easily seep 6 or more people. And very reasonably priced! The country setting was so beautiful; sheep outside my bedroom window, calves in the field beside and then there was the horse (I can't remember her name) and Jim the Donkey! We had a great time feeding Jim and the horse in the evenings before settling in front of our cozy peat fire. This was our first trip to Ireland and with accommodations like this we will definitely be going back some day. And Catherine and Martin's cottage will be at the top of our list of places to stay!

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!
