“Rose Cottage is a lovely place set in the midst of sheep farms.”
It is quiet and beautiful. Just what we were looking for. The decor is lovely and the place is exceptionally clean, which we greatly appreciated. We loved looking out the window at the ewes with their lambs, and the area was lovely for walking. The internet worked well. ...
It is quiet and beautiful. Just what we were looking for. The decor is lovely and the place is exceptionally clean, which we greatly appreciated. We loved looking out the window at the ewes with their lambs, and the area was lovely for walking. The internet worked well. Our only complaint is the kitchen facilities. Since Rose Cottage is 20 minutes from the nearest town, we had planned to buy a quantity of food for the time we were there. However, the refrigerator is under the counter, like you find in a hotel room, and is not adequate for that, so we could only buy a little at a time, requiring that we drive to Roscommon every other day to restock. We like to cook when we stay in Irish cottages, so frequent eating out was not in the plan and we needed a place to store our food. The refrigerator freezer had no storage space except for a pizza, if taken out of the box. The kitchen furnishings (utensils, etc.) are stocked for only the minimum of cooking so it was a challenge for me to manage. We had to buy a small French press for morning coffee because the coffee pot provided did not sit safely on the gas burners and could not perk the coffee.
