Lovely Place
We used the lovely cottage on the lake as our base and traveled all over southern and central Ireland. We had three generations and loved our time in the cottage. My father (79 years old) threatened to sell everything when he got home and move to Ireland. Everyone we met in Kilbeg and nearby Headford was just delightful. We found everything we needed nearby and could have stayed another 2 weeks. It is a very special place

Fishing Trip
We had lovely week long stay here, location is great for fishing on Lough Corrib, we had two boats morred at the bottom of garden. The cottage is spacious and facilities are good, we can't wait for next year trip. A big thumbs up from us.

Family holiday
We loved our visit to Kilbeg. Great house with lots of room for an extended family to spread out. Beautiful view of the lake. Extremely peaceful setting. The house is very well resourced for cooking and lots of games etc if weather is poor. Key holder Martina was very helpful. House was very clean. For some people to 10 minute drive to nearest shop / pub may be a disadvantage. Nearby pub closed due to Covid restrictions but only a short walk from house. We loved our break.

Little Hidden Gem
What a fabulous holiday we had at this beautiful home for 1 week, indeed I could have stayed for 2 weeks. The view is stunning, so tranquil overlooking the lake, you could hear a pin drop. The donkeys were joyous for both the adults and the kids. Home from home, plenty of space, we all felt very relaxed here. Everything we needed was in the house, including toys for the kids. The beds were comfy and the showers were great too. We even made apple crumble using apples from the garden and enjoyed picking fresh mint also for our drinks. Perfect location for touring the surrounding areas, not too far from anywhere. We visited Cong Village which was my favourite, had lunch at Ashford Castle, a lovely walk around the gardens at Westport House, a walk around Galway and Salthill together with a visit to Clifden and Kylemore Abbey. We did a few hours touring in the afternoon then enjoyed a drink out on the patio on the comfy deckchairs on our return, with lovely family meals cooked later in the evening. Lovely for different parts of the family to be doing their own thing in different parts of the large communal living area, whilst all remaining together. The weather turned out much better than that forecast, rained usually when driving, then the sun shone every time we arrived at our destination. Joyces supermarket in local village of Headford is well stocked with anything you require. Unfortunately the local pub was closed due to Covid, but hopefully we will get a drink there next time. Martina the host was very helpful and Norma the owner was also very quick to reply to any questions we had. We will definitely return, the house and the location of it made the holiday so special. Would highly recommend this property, especially if there is a large group. Thanks Norma and Martina for your kind hospitality😊

Very picturesque
The cottage is in an ideal setting, with a lake at the bottom of the garden and donkeys in an adjacent field. The main rooms to the house overlook the lake and it is lovely to just sit and watch the world go by come rain or shine. Marina, who services the property is very friendly and is happy to answer any questions and is on-hand to resolve any issues. We had a party of 7 and there was plenty of space both inside and outside of the property. Although the kitchen is small, it wasn't an issue for us as it had everything we needed - dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage space and the lounge is equipped with a selection of books, dvds and cds. We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage and would definitely go back, if only we could guarantee nice weather next time! ;-)

Lovely lake house
Garden and location were amazing, very quiet and beautiful. The wildflowers, donkeys, & lake view made for an idyllic holiday. Furnishings and decoration were typical of Ireland - country style, lots of wood and shelves with knick-knacks like shells and rocks. Beds were very comfy, lots of towels provided. Umbrellas, walking sticks and fireplace supplies were also v. handy. Crockery/cutlery/pots and pans more than enough even for larger groups, but could do with a few more cooking knives, spatulas and the like. A particularly lovely touch was the delicious cake left for us on arrival. All in all, would recommend!

Beautiful, accommodating home! Great location
Absolutely fantastic home!! Spacious, roomy, clean, comfortable house with beautiful views of the lake. We had 4 adults and 3 children with more then enough room . So happy I brought no toys for the kids because there were plenty for them, plus games and books for the adults. The house has everything you need. Especially a kids room downstairs with 2 twin beds , bed railings and a playpen . I was especially grateful there was a baby gate at the top of the stairs. The kids had a wonderful time feeding the donkeys each day and running around the spacious gardens in the front and back. The local town is Headford and only took us about 10 minutes. There’s a large supermarket with everything you need, a playground, running track, pubs, take away. Galway city wasn’t more then 25 minutes away. The on-site manager was wonderful . She was very helpful, answered our many questions and kindly gave us a stroller when we lost ours at the airport. Overall, we had the most wonderful stay and I will be back again. The house fit our every need! Thank you!!

Really nice accommodation, lots of space with fantastic views of the lake
Loved our month stay here, the owner was in regular contact ensuring everything was ok. Really nice house, clean and tidy situated in a quiet friendly location. Stunning views over the lake. Friendly donkeys in the next property that wait for your arrival for some fresh carrots. Highly.recommend a visit here.

Beautiful home and location
What a great stay we had. The home was roomy enough for 7 adults. It had everything we needed. Being on the lake was beautiful. Saw swans and all kinds of birds. Even us adults enjoyed feeding the donkeys which live on the property. If you are a couch potato and plan to stay at home and watch TV, this home is not for you. But the wifi worked great and there are plenty of games to entertain yourself. We spent our evening down time in Headford and other surrounding towns at the great pubs. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly.
