“Exceptional Irish Hospitality”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My family and friends stayed at Avalon, originally we planned to stay 2 nights but extended this to 3. If we had of been able to stay longer we would of because of the great home and hospitality the owner and his brother gave us. They made us feel very welcome from the start with a local homemade apple pie to driving directions in the middle of the night. I was very proud to say I had Irish heritage when I met people as wonderful as that. I would recommend taking time out and visiting this part of Ireland, it is well worth it.

“Perfect for large family”

We booked this house for a family get together in March. Booking with the owner Michael was very straightforward and easy, he was very helpful.
The house was fantastic as advertised. The views from the wrap around windows are amazing and the beach is a two minute walk away. We were a group of eight adults and eight children and we felt we had plenty of space. We liked the fact that the living area is one big space so that everyone was together at all times, even though it was big enough for one person to be reading, others watching the tv, while others cooked and chatted.
There are good cooking facilities,a tv , wi-fi and a washing machine.
The bedrooms were fine- clean and big enough.
Louisburgh is a 5 minute drive away and Westport about 20-25 mins. A taxi to or from Westport cost us €20 each way which we thought was ok between 4 of us who went out there in the evening to a pub.
In short ,a stunning house in a stunning location and we hope to return some day! We would highly recommend this house and this owner.
Just to add our deposit was returned extremely promptly with no difficulty at all.

Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Enormous living room / kitchen with stunning views was the main attraction. But the house was overall very nice, clean and well appointed with good sized bedrooms. We were very lucky with sunny days every day which, through the very large windows, made the living room very warm without heating. You'd need more heating during the day if you weren't so lucky - such a large house could get chilly.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Avalon was the perfect spot for our getaway. The house is magnificent with every kind of modcon, a wonderful sitting room with incredible views of the atlantic and ample beds/bathrooms. The owner, Michael is a pleasure to deal with. The location is wonderful, only about 15mins from westport & about 2km from louisburgh itself. We had a wonderful weekend. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
