"In the west of Ireland, nothing beats Blue Charm cottage"

My wife and I, two grown children and their spouses spent 10 nights at Blue Charm and we recommend it highly. The view is spectacular, the house is warm and cozy with all amenities and the service and responsiveness of the owner was the best we've ever experienced. (We do holiday homes at least once a year.)

"Relaxation from start to finish!"

This holiday was perfect. Breathtaking views, peaceful location and a clean, comfortable house. Cathy the owner welcomed us on arrival, fresh flower arrangements in all the rooms, bottle of wine and chocolates..... just lovely. The garden areas are beautiful with the boat house and pier an added bonus. Although, not catching any fish there was a few that "got away"
Great walks and beaches a short car journey away. We all had a fantastic time.
