    “Felt just like being at home again.”
    We have just returned from an amazing week at Cregan Cottage. We had our little dog with us and we all had a lovely welcome from the owner Mrs Kennedy, who went out of her way to make sure we could pick up the keys. There were home made scones, butter and tea waiting on our arrival which was very much appreciated after our journey. ...
    We have just returned from an amazing week at Cregan Cottage. We had our little dog with us and we all had a lovely welcome from the owner Mrs Kennedy, who went out of her way to make sure we could pick up the keys. There were home made scones, butter and tea waiting on our arrival which was very much appreciated after our journey. I was born in the area and my family still live close by, so it really felt like I was at home again. Everything you need is supplied, there is a fully equipped kitchen and a really handy utility room and 2nd toilet that is separate from the house. The cottage is really warm with central heating throughout. In addition there is a log burner in the living room with a plentiful supply of logs and turf (assuming you know what turf is!). The bed was really comfortable and the bed linens are a very good quality, really cosy and warm. We were lucky to have sun every day which meant we could get out to explore the area, although my favourite times were sitting in the summer house listening to the birds signing in the spacious and well maintained garden. We didn't go as far as having a barbecue, as all the equipment was supplied, although we did have a few great games of Pétanque in the purpose built outdoor alley. They supplied the boules and instructions to play the game. ....it was just like being in France. Our dog fell in love with the donkey who was the friendliest donkey I have ever met. She would pop over every morning for an apple and a chat. There a plenty of towns within a short drive and loads to do and explore. I would advise a trip to Achill Island and an attempt to climb Crough Patrick. We will definitely go back to Cregan Cottage again.

Beautifully presented and set across one floor, this stone-fronted, Swinford cottage has been lovingly refurbished and maintains much of the original cottage's charm and character.

The homely feel of the open plan kitchen and living space is complemented by the exposed wooden beams, while the whole area is warmed by a cosy solid fuel stove housed in an impressive feature fireplace, with the welcoming owners happy to supply all the fuel you need.

To the front of your Swinford cottage is a well-kept lawned garden, complete with water feature, while the rear of the property boasts a herb garden, as well as a collection of fruit trees, with visitors welcome to enjoy the harvest when in season.

Those looking to get away from it all will enjoy the peaceful setting, but the amenities of Swinford and the charming village of Aclare are never far away should you need them.
