  • "The cottage was beautiful."

    Very clean with modern facilities. We particularly enjoyed the large living / kitchen space with the stove. There was also plenty of safe enclosed space outside for our kids. The location was great also, a short drive from Ballina and a great base for exploring Northern Mayo.

  • "Cottage is quite excellent."

    Owners had really thought about needs of guests travelling a distance, things like milk, butter, salt, pepper, cooking oil and cleaning items like washing up liquid provided, and went extra mile with fresh wheaten bread and home made jam. The cottage was spotless, bright, airy,warm and comfortable in every way which we appreciated even more as weather was not great and we spent quite a bit of time in. Easy to find as per directions, small town of Crossmolina 5 mins drive away has a Centra store which meets all needs (and a lovely coffee shop, the Old Post Office!) Well located for travelling around Co Mayo. Thanks Michael and Mary!

  • "Clonkee Cottage is a lovely warm and comfortable place."

    We didn't have the best of the weather but enjoyed the local towns and the area is very beautiful. The owners here were extremely hospitable and helpful. We left a couple of suggestions to make the experience better - like getting a freeview tv instead of the very basic Irish Tv and also perhaps an upgrade on the tired suite in the lounge. Having said that, we had our 2 dogs with us and the garden is pretty well fenced for security so peace of mind is what we look for in a cottage holiday and that we got. Good water pressure and excellent central heating - a must for a winter break. We would recommend the cottage to others.

  • "Our week at Cloonkee Cottage was perfect."

    We visited with our two daughters, 18 & 20, as well as our dog and we all felt at home from the start.The cottage is well positioned to visit all of Mayo’s main attractions, but also in a very peaceful location. The cottage is very well equipped, with everything you need for a comfortable stay and there’s enough peat to keep you warm for a year. Our visit coincided with the owners being away on holiday, but we were very well looked after by their son Enda, who made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay in this location again.
