    “The Robins Nest Knock”
    We enjoyed our stay. ...
    We enjoyed our stay. The property on the edge of Knock is well positioned for local amenities, local shop, supermarket, pub, local fishing lake and the Basilica Museum and Park at Knock shrine. There is plenty of car parking available at the front of the property, and a grassed area at the rear of the property has a picnic table and plenty of room to dry clothes on a line. (Good nwe washing machine) Knock is well connected with a great road net work. Our daughter visited from the UK and was easy to meet at the Ireland West Knock Airport twenty minutes away by road. The location enabled us to visit Westport (Greenway Cycle route), Achill Island, Cong, Lough Corrib, Conemarra National Park, Kylemore Abbey, Galway, National Museum of Ireland Country Life. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Island of Inishmore (Aran Islands) We visited our friends who reside in Belmullet, West Ireland and they made a return visit to Knock. They enjoyed their time with us and liked the traditional cottage environment and they too found the accommodation spacious, clean, with very comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen dining room was good for entertaining our guests and the spacious turf fired lounge made for a sociable evening. Our respective dogs could easily be accommodated exercised in the Knock shrine park (accessed opposite the Robins Nest via the convent side road). Good comfortable Irish cottage accommodation We would stay again David Mary and Katie Bland
