Hi Brian & Therese,

Thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of Pontoon House, your review is all the more valuable as you are so familiar with this lovely unspoilt area of Co. Mayo. We look forward to your return visit in 2014.

Kind regards,

Paddy & Emer.

“Splendid, look no further”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A great house in a good if slightly remote location. Nevertheless reasonably close to Castlebar, Westport and the rest of Mayo, and Connemarra reasonably accessible too.
Highlights: 5 bedrooms, would easily sleep 3 families and plenty of bathrooms and en suite showers. A fabulous lounge diner with a huge dining table and a full height ceiling with galleried landing. Easily the very best equipped kitchen we have ever had on a Holiday rental. You need to bring nothing. Fantastic views and a great rear garden which would be a mecca for Children. A very helpful and understanding landlord who seems to have absolutely everything covered.
The only downside is that the 2 of us were there alone due to unexpected illness in the family of our travelling companions. It was such a large house we rattled around a bit!.
Would definately return
