"Idyllic location on Lough Conn"

We decided to book this cottage as a base from which to visit our son, who was staying in the Gaeltacht nearby. We had our two younger children with us, aged 9 and 12. Our 14 year old came to stay on his days off.

From the moment we arrived, we all fell in love with the place. In the house, the kids loved the double bed at the top of the ladder, overlooking the open plan kitchen and living area. While outside, they couldn't believe that we were only a few feet from the most beautiful sandy beach on the shore of lough Conn. The caretaker met us on arrival and explained where everything was and how it worked. Not only were we given access to the beach house and the massive gardens (including a trampoline and full sized tennis court), but we were also given access to kayaks, oars and fishing boats, complete with outboard motors for the experienced fisherman. Safety is a major priority for the owners, so they also provide an extensive range of life jackets, which had to be worn when using the equipment. From the beach, you can walk about 20m from the shore without the water reaching your knees, so it is ideal for small children paddling.

If you are looking for peace and quiet, you cannot get much better than here. The house is located more than 1km from the road, with access via a private road way. The beach house itself is very comfortable and modern. The galley kitchen is small, but contained everything we needed, including a dishwasher. The main living area has an eight seat dining table and several comfortable couches and chairs. For the colder months, there is a wood burning stove, but luckily we were there during hot weather, so never needed the heating. The master bedroom is very spacious and there is a large family bathroom, with a lovely powerful shower.

Outside the house, there is also a table for alfresco dining, as well as recliners and an outdoor stove. A BBQ was also provided, with a full bottle of gas. There are plenty of wooded grounds to explore, but the highlight for us was the trail up around Terrybaun head, which is part of the grounds of the house.

A car is required when visiting, as there is a good distance between villages and the roads are too narrow for walking. In nearby Lahardane, we visited the recently opened Titanic memorial, as well as Leonards pub, which is a real country pub, with a grocery store on one side and the bar on the other. Lahardane is about 10km from the house. Closer in Pontoon, we visited Healy's pub where they had an extensive lunch menu, with plenty of choices for the kids. Castlebar has plenty of choice for restaurants and entertainment and is only 20 minutes away by car.

The various people who look after the grounds are extremely friendly and helpful, dropping in fresh lettuce, herbs and strawberries from the garden. They also have a lot of local knowledge and are happy to pass on information about events taking place in the area. While we were there, they tipped us off that there was a fireworks display in Ballina, which we could view from the top of the trail in the garden.

We would highly recommend this house and we cannot wait to go back.
