Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at this home. My husband and son enjoyed the fire pit outside the home, the first night was magical the way the stars were out. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the television, VCR/DVD player, washer and dryer all worked well. The house has a nice touch with comfy pillows and beautiful plants it set up very nicely. The location is good your close enough to Limerick city and Ennis is a short drive away. We would recommend this place the owner Gillian was very pleasant to deal with.

Spacious, clean, comfy, beautiful garden & area.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless. The lounge was large and homely with an open fire and the large windows let light in during the day providing us with a lovely view of the lake. The huge kitchen table easily seated all 8 of us and held all the great big dishes of food that we had cooked. The utility room was large & had a dart board & games. Additional wellies & rain macs were available. Sad that we didn't get to use the barbecues and more of the stunning back garden due to the weather. Also, we ran out of time & didn't get to use the local boats on the lake. A great party house for a group of up to 9 people.

Ideal accomodation for a family occasion

  • 4 of 5

We were attending a wedding in Kilmurry and stayed here for a week. At various times we had up to 7 adults two young children and a new baby. The internal layout of the bungalow lent itself to providing space for individual couples with the children in a twin bed room. Accomodation was clean and as described with a large kitchen and living area.The location is very peaceful with a lovely outlook and great for walking/ cycling. We were able to use outside facilities for a barbecue for some family members attending the wedding. When a small problem arose Gillian had it sorted within 30 minutes. There were no issues with the entire stay. Although the kitchen units could probably be updated we thought the bungalow, grounds and facilities were excellent.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 9 staying in this home, and it was lovely! A beautiful kitchen, living room, spacious bedrooms! It is very close to the airport, and with our GPS, we drove all over very easily. We had a bit of trouble locating the home upon arrival, as it was very dark; but Gillian called me and led me right to the doorstep! An amazing week away, would definitely return!
