Just back from a 2 week stay in Gleeson cottage and it was absolutely fantastic! Helen the owner met us on arrival with the fire burning, a bottle of wine and the house had everything we could of possibly needed for our stay. We packed far to much because Helen had thought of everything. The cottage is clean and cosy and beds are very comfortable. The cottage is in a beautiful location which is so relaxing and we enjoyed lots of walks and got out running. The shops are about 20 mins away in the car and it's a nice drive. My husband and I have absolutely no complaints at all and we throughly enjoyed our first family holiday with our 6 month old daughter. If the weather is too bad to leave the cottage the free wifi, freeview and board games will keep you entertained. We will definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to our family and friends. Thanks again Helen!! We hope to be back soon!
We spent two weeks in the cottage and found it well equipped, clean, warm (storage heaters and log fire) and in a lovely rural location, at the end of a small lane. The kitchen had everything you would expect and more! There is a working farms nearby so you would find cows, sheep and donkeys in the fields leading up to the cottage. It is a great location for exploring Mayo, shops and cinema in nearby Castlebar (20 min drive) and you can drive up into the hills exploring some small villages if you are in the adventurous spirit of driving up single lane roads....Helen, the owner, is a great hostess and was there to welcome us on our arrival and had kindly put up Christmas decorations which we very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend The Gleeson's Cottage!
