Excellent facilities in a beautiful location. Had a great holiday!
Mr Gibbs, East Sussex
,Loved that it was represented exactly as shown in the pictures and as described! There were little quirky things that made us feel truly in the country in a beautifully restored-but-old cottage! Once you learn how to turn everything on, everything works beautifully, and we love the conservation that they expect (because we are 'green' people). The owners couldn't have been friendlier, and were an absolute DELIGHT to meet and talk to. Great location for us! Day trips within easy reach, the cottage serene and so peaceful. Would definitely do it again!
Dr Wunderli, WI
,What a perfect place to stay. Our four daughters loved sleeping up in the lofts, it was true country living. We all loved watching all the sheep across the road and we made a lot of day trips under two hours visiting several castles and tourist attractions. The owner was delightful to talk to. Ireland was absolutely gorgeous. We would definitely recommend this rental to others. It was very affordable and we made very special memories as a family.
Ms Bivens, MI
,The cottage was perfect for our get away to find our family roots in the beautiful countryside of Ireland. It was like taking a step back in time, while still having all the creature comforts at your disposal! The owner and his family did a beautiful job with the restoration. It was an amazing find for us. We were given a print out to bring along with 40 pages worth of information and a number to call just in case they left something out. You are made to feel welcome in their home and it makes you want to return. There are 40 acres to explore and all they ask is that you close the gates behind you as you enter. So whether you live in the busy cities in Ireland and just want a quiet retreat or you want a getaway from another country, to the country, this is perfect.
Mrs Tomasso, Bristol
,The cottage is in a beautiful position and is very convenient for Roscommon town and for Athlone. The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful.
Mr Hooks, Surrey
,Great homely feel to the cottage. On arrival it was clear the owner took a great deal of pride in the presentation, as it was very clean and had all the amenities as described prior to arrival. Garden was great for our dog to stretch his legs first thing in the morning and both outbuildings contained all you need for a week away. I will certainly be coming back and would recommend to anyone looking for a clean and homely cottage with that personal touch.
Mr Desmond, Perth and Kinross
,A lovely period cottage in a great location, situated in reach of plenty of activities/sights etc.
Mrs Studholme, Lancashire
,The cottage was beautiful and we enjoyed talking and visiting with the owner. Ireland is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly.
