Good beaches a few minutes away, close enough to local shops and nearby Kilrush has everything you need. The house itself was deceptively bigger than it looked in the pictures, and the playroom was a godsend! The private garden and decking area provided a few great evenings! Thomas was lovely, and very helpful and the little extra's on arrival were unexpected and very appreciated. Definitely a house we would come back to! Reviewed by SineadJul 2022 "Lovely property, clean and well looked after." Very friendly and helpful host. Cows passing by in road between 8 and 9 and around 17:00 so be prepared to wait at those times of day. Approx 1 mile to main road and fairly bumpy tarmac single lane. Very quiet.
