I rented the cottage for our Girl's Trip - my mom, my sister, myself, and my mom's best friend. The cottage was perfect for our needs. The location is perfect for people who are visiting the western side of Ireland. We did everything from as far north as Kylemore Abbey to as far south as Cork. The middle location of the cottage was very convenient. We had a bit of trouble finding it the first night because it was dark and there was no lighted sign over the name of the place. Also, the emailed directions I got from the booking agent indicated 30 MTS after turn and as an American I didn't realize at first that this meant METERS. So we drove 10 MINUTES down the trail looking for the place instead of realizing it was 10 meters. Would have been easier to say first house on left after the turn. Towels are provided for but there are no face cloths (which is the norm in Europe so take your own). Be careful stepping out of the bathtub because the tub seems to be on a bit of a ledge. There are basic kitchen items provided like ketchup and sugar and tea/coffee. We got a little confused by the washer/dryer because we needed to dry some clothes that had gotten wet in a downpour but we didn't know how to turn on just the dryer without running a full wash cycle first. There is a lot of parking space available. We had an SUV but we could have parked maybe 5 more easily. The view out of the front facing rooms are stunning. The absolute ONLY 'complaint' is that there is no internet or Wi-Fi available. This would have made it easier to plan our day trips but I just ordered a data plan for my phone and used that along with a paper map. Otherwise, it was great. There are even a few movies and books provided for entertainment.
