    Our wedding anniversary falls on New Year's Eve and so it has always been difficult to just celebrate the anniversary without year end celebrations overtaking. so this year as it was out 30th we were determined to do something special and alone!! This cottage was everything we were looking for: Great location, remote, superb facilities, unique, sea views and fantastic walks. Dan and Rosie, the landlords, could not have been more helpful - although we did not meet them, communications by email, text and phone were fast and most helpful. We travelled locally and made the most of Gus O'Connors pub in in Doolin which had fantastic traditional Irish music and dancing with superb food and hospitality. A day's shopping in Galway was a welcome experience compared with the repetitive multiple retailers normally found in cities. The house is very well appointed and a great deal of thought has gone into providing all the little extras that are so often missing in holiday lets. We are definitely going back which is the best endorsement we can offer
