Fun home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This nice large home is in a wonderful location to explore Connemara Nat'l Park, Galway, Sligo as well as a large portion of central Ireland. There are many beautiful drives, castles and historic places to visit. It is near Ballinrobe so shopping is convenient. Martin and Catherine were terrific hosts and were eager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We would highly recommend this holiday home.

Warm welcome in a very cosy house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, 8th of us including 4 children, stayed at the Concannon's cottage and felt like at home. Even with the bad weather the house seemed very cosy. Martin and Catherine were very kind and tried to cover all our needs. They facilitated our arrival as we had a late flight and we didn't need to book a hotel for the first night. By the way, it was great to have the electric blankets on so we could get into a nice warm bed! They were also setting the fire every day and when we arrive to the house after doing some sighteen it was warm and comfy.

The house is perfect for children. They even had the chance to get into Martin's tractor!

We recommend to visit the nearby village of Cong and have a walk up to Ashford Castle and the quiet man house. Also Connemara mountains and the fjord are brilliant.

Estuve con mi familia, 8 miembros incluyendo 4 niños, en la casa de alquiler de los Concannon y nos sentimos como en casa. Incluso con el mal tiempo que tuvimos la casa resultó acogedora. Martin y Catherine fueron muy atentos con nosotros e intentaban cubrir todas nuestras necesidades. Nos facilitaron mucho la llegada pues nuestro vuelo llegaba muy tarde y no tuvimos que reservar un hotel para el primer día. Por cierto que tener las mantas eléctricas encendidas en las camas y encontrarlas calentitas fue una gozada. Además nos encendían la chimenea cada día para que a nuestra vuelta de hacer turismo por la zona pudieramos estar cómodos.

¡Ni que decir tiene que los niños disfrutaron cuando Martin les dio una vuelta en su tractor! De hecho la casa es perfecta para ir con niños.

Recomiendo a todo el mundo acercarse al bonito pueblo de Cong y ver la casa del hombre tranquilo, la abadía y dar un paseo hasta el castillo de Ashford. También es interesante el paisaje de las montañas de Connemara y el fiordo.

If you can book it, you should BOOK IT

  • 5 of 5

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.
