Great rural location.
The Whittam Party, October 2018
We had a long weekend in this lovely cottage. It's quite a long way from everything, so you need a car when you stay, but if you're looking for peace and quiet, this rural location hits the nail on the head. It took a day or so to warm the cottage up as we arrived in the first really cold snap of Autumn and I think the cottage may have been empty for a few weeks. We arrived to a very clean and tidy property, that was well stocked with all the essential equipment that you might need - except a freezer box, which just meant we had to eat all the ice-cream we'd bought on the way. The open fire is lovely, the house is very tastefully decorated and spacious - would we stay again? Certainly.

This place was great! The owner was very friendly, the rooms were clean and it was bigger than it seemed.

Quiet location, big enough for family of 4. House located at the end of a lane away from other houses. Good sized kitchen and bedrooms, two bathrooms. Warm with plenty of spare blankets if needed, perfect for relaxing and reading.

The location was a little more remote than anticipated but we wanted peace and tranquility with good views and it was ideal for this. The lake was a nice bonus. We fished in the lake and went to the Abbey in Boyle and Lough Key Lakeside which was very good with tree canopy walks. The cottage provided a good base for travelling to sights. If you have the time, I would recommend exploring the historical buildings and exhibitions such as the famine museum and the modern Irish crafts and head out to the Dock in Carrik-on-Shannon. There are a lot of good outdoor activites to do. The Quay pub/restaurant in Galway serves escellent food in an interesting interior with many levels and a wealth of food. Keenans, near Stokestown is an outstanding restaurant with a friendly owner and efficient staff.

Lovitt, July 2008
This was a lovely tranquil country location. We toured around Ireland to see as much as possible. There was a large lake within walking distance which was ideal for picnics and fishing. There was so many places of interest we were spoilt for choice. Surfing in the nearby beaches excellent. Various birds and the occasional hare were great to observe plus the odd horse grazing in the surrounding fields.

Spacious property in quiet and peaceful location. Very picturesque area. Lakes are beautiful. Donegal worth a visit lovely drive. The Royal Hotel and the Stonehouse Cafe great for food and both located in Boyle.

This house was perfect for us and so was Boyle itself. Great for local fishing and relaxing, yet being so close to pubs and restaurants meant we had time to let our hair down aswell. A superb week. Thanks for your hospitality.
