The washing facilities were really useful - especially with a young child! Reviewed by GraemeApr 2019 "Egan's Cottage was absolutely perfect for us, with our sister living in Whitegate, 5 mins away." The house is lovely and cosy and spacious. We couldn't have wanted for anything. Wifi might have been useful, but we managed fine without out. Reviewed by JulieMar 2018 "The house was nice and well equipped." The weather was cold (Emma-storm hit.) and so was The house too. But we got more heat. Reviewed by MaaritFeb 2018 "What a beautiful house!" The facilities and welcome were superb - even had flowers in the living room and dining room! We had an electric blanket on our bed too, which was lovely as the nights were getting colder. It was very comfortable, a true home from home. It was in easy reach of the various activities we had planned in Portumna, Galway,. Bunratty and Limerick. The kids enjoyed the gardens - and chatting to the cows over the fence. We even had a BBQ on our last night there. We would certainly recommend this to anyone and hope to come again ourselves.
