Very Good

“Treated Like Family”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

I was looking forward to our stay at Herdsman's House, not only because of the wonderful pictures and description on their website, but also because of Mary's friendly and prompt responses to my pre-visit emails and questions. And we were not disappointed in any regard. The house and surrounding area are beautiful - everything promised and so much more. Whether we were busy sightseeing in nearby Sligo and Donegal, or taking a day off relaxing at the cottage, exploring the "neighborhood" and enjoying the game room, we loved every moment of our stay. Ireland has many wonderful self-catering rentals, but Mary and Des and their two beautiful, talented children make Herdsman's House the best by far in my opinion. This was our fourth self-catering experience in Ireland, and while the other cottages and owners were all excellent in their own right, the Carways are very special people. When my husband needed treatment for a minor medical emergency, Mary and Des helped us obtain the necessary care and provided moral support throughout. Although he felt much better the next day, he decided to stay at Herdsman's House and take it easy while the rest of us went on an outting. Mary and Des dropped by to see how he was doing, and took him for a short ride out to scenic Mullaghmore where their young son was sailing. That was only one of their many kindnesses. We were greeted with milk and cookies on our arrival, and fresh Irish soda bread the day of our departure. And Des provided a guided tour of the fairy fort just up the road. Given the opportunity, we will visit Herdsman's House again, and encourage others to do so as well. You won't regret it.

mr carway was helpful and friendly but i was very dissapointed that there was no bikes, boats. etc which was in the addvert and was then charged 90 euro on top of the rent for gas when i left.i couldnt believe it after i was told u get this back,we left the house clean and no damages.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments regarding our friendliness and helpfulness. We are sorry that the available bicycles did not meet your needs. It is regrettable that a lot of time was spent trying to have your car repaired and missed some opportunities for a boat trip. Unfortunately we have to charge for heating oil, as is outlined on our website. On guests' arrival, we explain the radiator controls, time clock and read the oil meter. Everyone's need for heat varies. If the heat is on day and night, some people might consider it expensive. Thank you for staying with us and your kind comments.
