  • "From the moment we arrived it became a “home from home” ."

    Maire and her family could not have been more helpful. As it was the middle of winter it was lovely to arrive to a warm cosy house, and a lovely turf fire to greet you. Over the few days we were there Maire always made sure we had plenty of turf available. We had one or two small issues during our stay, which were dealt with speedily and efficiently. We appreciated being able to converse “As Gaeilge” , which doesn’t happen too often these days. The house was spotless and well kitted out. We had access to Saorview and DVDs . There is NO Wi-Fi available on the property. It is in a great location to explore Connemara and environs.

  • "Very good overall, but the microwave broke down and hot water stopped being available."

    The biggest problem, however, was the dishwasher, which only worked on the Eco setting, which took hours, and which was incredibly noisy. Imagine trying to go to sleep while someone in the kitchen is beating a big bass drum while leaping up and down in a tub of water. That’s what it sounded like.

    Thank you for your feedback, during your stay the microwave broke down however the owners did replace this within the same afternoon. Unfortunately we and the owners were unaware of your hot water issue, this was only reported on departure. It was investigated and appeared a switch had tripped on the water heater. We are glad you were still able to enjoy your holiday. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was a very warm and welcoming retreat for our large family."

    We enjoyed the personal touches of family photographs and the kitchen was very well equipped. My mother took to calling the sitting room behind the stove "nana's parlor". We felt very at home. We only wished that we could have stayed longer!

    The cottage was very clean, plenty big enough and cozy. The owners were very thoughtful and helpful. The fire was lit when we arrived they showed us on the map where we could find hiking trails, castles and many other things to do during our stay. Thank you!

  • "It's a very old, characterful, beautiful cottage set in the real depths of Connemara."

    The nearest little village of Ros muc is twenty minutes' drive down the road. The owners are really lovely and we had a gorgeous time overall, despite the wet weather! Would highly recommend. Be aware there is no wifi and the area is unable to pick up data either.

    We enjoyed the peace very much and were very happy about the loving reception of our hosts. From here we were able to reach all our sights without any problems. We can only recommend this beautiful little house in any case.

  • "A beautiful traditional cottage in a wonderfully remote location."

    Very well-equipped and comfortable, with helpful owners who live next door. Parking is off-road, opposite the cottage. The immediate area is a very beautiful and there are plenty of local walks. A real bargain at the price!

  • "We had the most amazing week."

    The cottage was simply lovely, spacious yet warm and cosy. So lovely to find a peat fire when we arrived. Great walks, great beaches, great fishing...all the things we went to Connemara for.

    It is really old but very well kept and internally a modernized cottage. The owners are super friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more and would love to return!

  • "My family and I really loved staying at this beautifully renovated cottage."

    It was modern yet homely and very spacious. We thought the location was perfect as a base for travelling and we enjoyed the wonderful views out of the cottage into the mountains and lake beyond. The owner was so kind and gave us lots of information and did everything possible to help us to enjoy our stay and get the most out of our time in Ireland. She went above and beyond what we expected and we will definitely stay at Tigh Mhicïl cottage again. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • "The warm and friendly welcome from the owners; the cosiness of the cottage and its location."

    We went to the lovely town of Westport and back on the magnificent drive from Louisburgh to Leenaun. Galway, one of my favourite cities, is less than an hour away and from there we visited the Burren but the best day by far was the day we spent on the Aran Islands. We highly recommend this cottage and hope to spend more time there.
