Second time staying
This place was so amazing we came back after two nights away! We originally stayed here for 6 nights before heading to Southern Ireland for another 6 nights. After 2 nights in the south I contacted the owner, Barry, to see if we could come back for 3 more nights. So we drove 3 hours back to the cottage. We felt so safe and comfortable here. We definitely made the right choice coming back! Hopefully we have another opportunity to come to Ireland, I know exactly where I'll be staying if I get the chance!

Perfect Place
The property was so cute! The owner recommended Crockett on Quay and we ended up having dinner there 4 of our 6 nights! The drive to stay there was beautiful amd we hope to be able to come back in the future!

Couldn't wait to get back here for our second stay (Excellent)
This was the second time we have stayed at this delightful holiday rental. Once again we have given it a 5 Star rating in every department. The cottage is spotless, tastefully furnished and contains every amenity possibly required for a relaxing, comfortable stay. The location is ideal for exploring the Wild Atlantic Way, local mountain walks and nearby beaches. Ballina is a short distance. The town offers a great opportunity to sample the local food, shops, bars & live music Barbara is a terrific host and a really nice person, she made sure we had everything we needed and was at hand if we wanted any help. If you are looking for accommodation that is well presented, thoroughly clean, that doesn't cost a fortune, we can recommend this delightful little cottage in Mayo you will not be disappointed

Spotless clean little bungalow in great location, highly recommend
From the outset I have nothing but high praise for this little place! From booking, Barry the host was extremely helpful. He sent emails recommending places to eat, amenities, places to visit etc. All this he did without being asked which I thought was particularly kind. To me he went above and beyond. Arriving at the property: The little bungalow was exactly as described. The front and back gardens are spacious. The back was so big for all the size of the little bungalow so if you have kids with you, like we did, the will never leave it! We put up a paddling pool and they kicked the ball keeping themselves entertained for hours. The whole property was spotless clean. Sofa and beds were so comfy! There was even an extra pull out bed and an air bed so you could definitely sleep 6 here. I was surprised to find so many appliances in the bungalow: hair dryer, travel cot, hoover, iron, ironing board, mop and bucket, microwave, toaster etc There was also a plentiful supply of cleaning products at hand: fairy liquid, hand soap, hand sanitiser, bathroom cleaner, surface cleansing wipes etc. It really was a home from experience. Also there is a plentiful supply of dvds available for kids and adults alike. Local Host: What can I say about the local host Barbara? Well she is absolutely fantastic!!! Barbara called soon after we arrived to check that everything was OK and to see if we needed anything at all. Barbara is so warm, bubbly and friendly. She really did go above and beyond for us on many occasions and we are so grateful to Barbara for everything she did for us during our one week stay at this property. She even brought us flowers from her garden! Barbara is Barry's hidden gem! Location: This bungalow is an end property which gives it great space. It's in a quiet area with a local convenience store only a short walk away. The town of Ballina is only a short 10min drive. Great location to explore other parts of Ireland like we did. Improvements: There's not much to improve on really. Barry and Barbara just keep doing what you are doing the reviews will speak for themselves. If I was to be really picky I would recommend that the back lawn is keep mowed like the front lawn as it's just a tiny bit long and annoyed the bits while playing football, also the back is not very private as it backs on to houses behind and you can see everything that is going on. As the back yards space is so huge a lovely patio table and chairs would be a nice touch!

Clean house, equipped with much more than I would expect 😀 All the appliances made our life a lot easier during the stay and when back home (washing, washing, washing... done a lot during our stay😆). Lovely neighbour, large garden, quick drive to Ballina - very good btw, Enniscrone beach, Ox Mountains-that was a nice surprise actually as I have focused on distance to the beach 😆 Barry is answering promptly and explains everything, highly recommend renting from Barry. Lovely stay
