“Marvellous estuary walks straight from the house and a sunny garden to rest afterwards.” A very comfortable house for our party of 4. the kitchen /dining room opens to a lovely sunny garden. The village of Rosscarberry is just up the hill and has everything you need...a lovely Irish Pub or two and a small store!
The area is beautiful, the bird watching spectacular and the food delicious....what more could you ask? Oh yes sunshine, and we had unadulterated sunshine for the whole week in March.
“Great location...great cottage!” Myself and my wife were lucky enough to spend a relaxing week in Beachcombers cottage. We found the cottage superbly maintained with all the latest mod cons including broadband. The cottage is very comfortably furnished and even has a stove fireplace which makes it all the more cozy during the evenings.
Other factors that made our stay even more enjoyable was the private access walkway down to the beach, which was great for some morning beach walks & the fact that within 10-15 minutes driving we were in the beautiful Carlingford town for lunch or an evening meal.
“Lovely well equipped property in a rural setting.” Stayed at this property for one week early September. We were a large family group in need of 3 bathrooms and lots of space. This property did not disappoint. It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owner Trudy was very helpful and had left toiletries and cleaning products for our use. Facilities and equipment very good.
Free internet access was very useful (no wi-fi).
Property is a short drive from Enfield where there are shops and bars. Furey's Bar/Restaurant was so good, we ate there 4 times during the week - only a 5 minute drive from the property.
4 white cats and 2 kittens visited daily and would sit outside the patio doors hoping to be fed. They never tried to venture indoors.
We spent little time at the property during the day as our plans included excursions as far north as Carlingford and south to Waterford - but we were always pleased to return each evening.
“Lovely comfortable home in picturesque location” Extremely well equipped home from home and the freshly baked bread & scones on arrival are a welcome touch. The location overlooking the Quay & within a short level walk to the town is excellent. The rear courtyard & gardens are extremely pleasant and have the benefit of table & chairs, sitting areas and BBQ. Kathleen is a pleasure to deal with & makes the stay stress free. The only small suggestion I would make is to turn the smallest bedroom into a single room with a chest of drawers for storage. Thankyou Kathleen will be booking again.
“It felt like coming home.” We had a lovely, warm welcome from John and Dolores. The home-made bread was delicious and much appreciated on arrival. The turf fire in the sitting room was delightful and made things very cosy in the evenings. The turf was replenished regularly by the turf fairy. The farmhouse is very spacious and coped easily with our party of nine. The food in the local pub, The Travellers' Inn," was fantastic and great value for money, unfortunately they only served food at the weekend, as it was off season. The house is located close to the town but in a quiet and idyllic setting. All in all, a fantastic place to re-charge the batteries and we would all hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you both for your hospitality.

“Amazing Apartment” The apartment is amazing, clean, spacious and with a fantastic view. It is located right in the centre of Galway City so you can walk to everything.
My only complaint would be the level of service that we received. On arriving in Galway the Apartment is not sign posted at all so we wandered around for a good 30 mins trying to find it. Spent the 1st hour of our holiday trying to contact the proprieter to let us in which wasn't ideal as our mobiles wouldn't work. My advice confirm a time you will be arriving and ensure they confirm they will be there.
On the website they offer a maid service (spent 7 days there didn't see a maid once) and also they can provide you with a keg of beer installed. Arrived with no keg installed (even though had previously e-mailed and booked this) was told on arrival I could call the guy myself to put this in if i wanted it!! Bit annoying, never actually ended up doing this was going to be too much hassle.
Other than that the apartment was brilliant and me and my friends had a fantastic time. Would definately recommend Galway and also this apartment.
“Great cottage great views and great owners would do anything for you!!” The house was great in a beautiful place would recommend it to anyone! The owners are lovely people couldnt do enough for us. The locals are brilliant had great craic in the pub hopefully get back again in the summer thanks again
“Fab place to stay” This house was perfect for my friends hen weekend. We had such a lovely time and house was perfect in every way. more than enough room for everyone and the owner was very accommodating. Close to all the bars and easy to find. Perfect.
“loverly house, wonderfull surrounding, a very friendly owner” we stayed for 1 week at this very spacious house.
well maintained with all necessary appliances to make it also a comfortable stay.
also recommended is to visit the Burren (take the farmers trail and get yourself some goat cheese), Connemara, Galway and do get yourself a drink at the owners pub :-)
The owner is very friendly and cooperative with any question you might have.
All the Irish people we met were very friendly btw.
If you want to dine out we also might suggest to go to the Chinese restaurant in Portumna and for a quick bite go to the half barrel pub in Whitegate.
We can strongly recommend this house to anyone.
for Internet access also go to the owners pub as this is not available at the house itself.
(unless you have mobile access)
“Fantastic apartment with stunning views and lovely personal touches” We have just returned from here yesterday after a really nice week here.

Thanks for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse,Cobh.
It's great to know your family enjoyed spending the Christmas holiday in Cobh and you even had some pretty good weather for this time of year too,although not as nice as your home back in Spain.
We hope to see you all again soon.
“Spacious cottage in good location” The cottage is very spacious and has a modern feel inside. The location is excellent being close to main roads but without any traffic noise. Flying to Shannon would be very doable.
