"Lovely holiday location!"

This was our first holiday as a family with our 10-month old babygirl and we're so happy to have booked with Eileen O'Shea in Lauragh! We came in quite late but the welcome with a roaring fire and a pot of fresh tea was a nice surprise. We were able to do some groceries at the owners' groceryshop. The Old Pub Cottage is comfortable and the O'Shea's are lovely people who know the area very well.
