“Everything was as nice as expected”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for six weeks through mid-September. The location was outstanding and the house was well appointed and furnished, very comfortable and spacious. Antoinette the owner was easily accessible, very helpful and a nice person! Dedicated parking is a real plus as is the fenced in backyard, nicely private and bigger than we expected. You do have to wait a bit to ensure hot water but that really wasn't a problem.

Thank you for a great review, yes I was a bit worried that you wouldnt find enough to do in Clifden for the duration of you holiday, which was 6 weeks. I need not have worried ... on the 2nd day of your stay, there was a social night on and here you were mingling with all the locals as if you had been there for years. Yes it was a great night wasn't it. Thank you again, Brian and Melissa for choosing to stay with us and delighted your extended family came to stay and introduced a new Grandaughter to Clifden.

This home was exactly as it appeared in the advertisement. Its beautifully and user friendly appointed. It's close to the pubs, shopping and entertainment. It's a short distance to the beaches, pony trekking, pitch & putt, and hiking. Had two teens traveling with me & the bedroom with two twin beds worked wonderfully. Antionette has a basket full of ideas for outings, festivals and places to visit. We had a marvelous time and want to return again SOON!!! Antionette and Anne are precious and made me feel like family.

We stayed at 7 An tSean Scoil for a week in July and were delighted with the house. Antoinette left us a lovely welcome pack of bread, wine,chocs and sweets, which was a lovely touch. The fire was also left ready for us to light if need be but the weather was lovely and we did not need to use it. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. It was in a fantastic location. A few minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and bars and a local play park which was great for our children. The town itself is lovely and I will definitely return again. Our children had lots to do from pony trekking, hiring bicycles and going to the fun fair. We had a great holiday. Thank you Antoinette.

“Lovely holiday home in a great location”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was such a good choice for our family holiday. We were met by a lovely lady called Anne who was very welcoming and showed us around the house. there waa a lovely welcoming basket of milk,bread strawberries, treats for the kids and wine, a lovely touch after a long journey.
The house was very spaciou, cleans and of good quality. There was lots of extras in the house we could use for example - beach towels,surf board bbq and toys for the kids. the enclosed back yard was also great for the kids to play in safely and to have bbq's.
Location of the property is great, walking distance to the main street. The station house hotel beside this house has a swimming pool where you can buy a 3 day pass which was great for the rainy days we had also has a cinema in the complex ( food in the bar is also great).
Good base for going exploring, we went to some lovely beaches, great walking routes. Penty to do, hopefully we will return, so much we didn't get time to do!!
Met the owner Antionette on our last day who was really nice as well.

“Perfect holiday base in Clifden”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We are a family of 6, 2 adults, 3 children and 1 dog. We're pretty sure this was the best holiday home rental we have every stayed in. The house itselt had everything we needed as a family right down to toys, puzzels and books for our children. The back yard was
very safe and secure for our pet dog. We received a very warm welcome from Antointte and Anne, they were so helpful and provide lots of tourist information also. There was also
a welcome gift for the entire family. The location of the house was also great, 2 minute walk from Station House Hotel Swimming Pool and town itself. We fould a great restaurant 'Off the Square' which would recommend to families for value and quality of food. We will definitely be coming back to stay here and holiday in Clifden again.

“Comfortable, welcoming, super-equipped, convenient location.”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

WE arrived in the rain to be welcomed by the owner who had the stove lit with a coal fire and the kettle on. The house is immaculate, and very well equipped. Lovely fluffy white towels, lovely bed linen, lots of toiletries, essential kitchen supplies, toys for children. Convenient for access to town of Clifden.
We would definitely stay here again.
Only downside was lack of Wi-Fi, but we were told that this will be provided shortly.
Highly recommended.
