“A magical experience!”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We arrived late on a December evening in the dark and on approaching the house, we could see, from the other side of the bay, Christmas tree lights on both floors welcoming us. It was wild on arrival but once we shut the door and explored this amazing house, we realised that this place had the WOW factor and settled in for the night with an eclectic mix of books, films and music.
After a wonderful night's sleep in one of the most beautiful and comfortable beds that I have ever slept in, we pulled up the blinds and looked out on a stunning view of Clew Bay and a lone boatman passing, almost at the front gate!!
The floor to ceiling windows in some of the rooms offer uninterrupted views of the bay.
Anyone interested in architecture would be amazed at the beautiful design and layout of this house and anyone with a love of nature would be in their element here.
The owners couldn't have done more to facilitate our every need. They were at the end of the phone to offer advice on walks, places to explore and even the names of the friendly locals in case we needed assistance during our stay.
This is a magical little treasure in the west of Ireland, not to be missed. Don't hesitate - GO WEST!!

“Exceptional holiday”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in August 2013

I was lucky to holiday in this beautiful house on a couple of occasions both with friends and separately with my partner Karen. On both occasions the booking process was effortless thanks to Ray and Anne. Ray has a fantastic knowledge of the area and had genuine interest in making our stay as special and as fun as possible.

If you think the photos of the house look fantastic they don't do it justice. The drive to the house is amazing but nothing prepares you for the views from the house. They are just breathtaking especially on a warm summer evening.

The house is huge with every conceivable mod con!!. You could live in the living room alone with its luxurious couch, bar and pool table... Need I say any more!

We spent most of the week on bicycles, and the pub, touring the various little towns as the house is only a short distance from Westport and Newport. We took advantage of the new greenway which is a dedicated cycle path that takes you all the way to Achill Island. Was lucky to also go fishing in Clew Bay one afternoon where we probably caught at least 30 mackerel. The BBQ later that night was fantastic.

This is definitely a location that has a lot of things to see and do and can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways whether with friends or just someone special. I can't recommend this place enough as its exceptional.

“A special house in a spectacular location,most relaxing holiday ever.”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in July 2013

The house is 10 mins from Westport and in a magical place. The surrounding area is calm and restful. The scenery in stunning, from the front of the house you look across the harbour to Croagh Patrick. The colours change during the day and there is always a different new view.
The house itself is amazing. It's clear that a lot of thought went into designing the house. Everything is thought of. Lots of space for everyone. We loved the big upstairs sitting room with the balcony and amazing view. The kitchen is really well stocked with appliances. We stayed at home most evenings and cooked, it was just where we wanted to be. A neighbour offered us fresh fish one evening.
During the day we walked, swam, climbed mountains, went kayaking, cycling and sight seeing. There are lots of spaces around the house to sit and chat or read. The house supplied books, games, DVDs and lots of local information.

“Incrediable house and area.”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in’ Croibh inis’ house in March 2015, and had a wonderful week. The house itself is beautifully designed, luxurious, immaculately kept and its so so comfortable! The surrounds are breathtaking, and maritime in nature ..with views of clew bay islands, croagh Patrick, and greenway access etc,... but, yet it’s close to Westport and Newport's quaint pubs excellent restaurants and boutique shopping. I simply did not want to leave at the end of the week!

“Spectacular house and location”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Our stay at Croibh-Inis was delightful. The luxurious and modern house catered very well for our group (which included a 4 year old).The location is stunning and if it's getting away from it all you are after then I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The owners were professional and courteous, it's not cheap but believe me it's worth it!

““Our best family holiday ever””

The most amazing place to stay with a family especially if you are looking to reconnect and build the family bonds with teenagers.

We had 7 full days of fun filled laughter and enjoyment. The house is absolutely unbelievable and the views are breathe taking. I would totally recommend everything about Croibh-Inis for families to just take time out and get to know more things about your children that you probably didn't know. We have decided that every year we will stay in Croibn-Inis, and the kids can't wait for our next visit. The boys were Kayaking, walking, cycling everyday and there is so much more to see and do.

The owner was so helpful when booking and easy to deal with and there was no hassle to facilitate us with any of our requirements. From the moment we arrived we were shown everything about the house, and there was food stocked so we didn't need to hit the shops until the next day. When you stay in such a fabulous house, it makes your holiday so much more enjoyable & comfortable.

Love it.. Love it... Love it...

“Best vacation rental I have stayed in”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in September 2013

Mostly on business trips I get to stay in about 6 vacation rentals per year. This home surpasses anything I have enjoyed in Ireland. The quality of the construction is superior to any I have seen. It is very spacious and modern, with every amenity. The location on a bay secluded from the outside world is superb. A short hike from the back garden leads you to a view of Clew bay and the ocean that is breathtaking. I could not ask for a better host and hostess that we received. Highly recommended.
