We were a group of four couples (with 2 young babies) and stayed for a long weekend. The cottage is huge and all of the bedrooms were ensuite except one which we didn't need to use! There was plenty of hot water to go round too! There was more than enough room for us all and it would have comfortably fitted another couple in the bedroom that we didn't use!
Bernadette the owner made us feel very welcome and even made us a beautiful batch of scones for our arrival!
There is everything that you could possibly need in the kitchen and the place is beautifully decorated throughout.
Location is good just 15 minutes from Westport and in a good spot to get to the beach/coast, mountain walks and small towns to explore.
All in all a great place to stay, great cottage, wonderful views, lovely owner and all at an amazing price when split between 4 couples! Highly recommend the outrage and the area!
