“Absolute Bliss”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had the pleasure of staying here a couple of weeks back for a few days, and can honestly say it was one of the best breaks we have ever had. The house is located in a beautiful part of the country, with loads to see and do locally, but the peace and quiet was a welcome break from city life. Becky and Alison kindly provided us with a welcome hamper stocked with loads of goodies, and the house itself was absolutely spotless. We will definitely be returning very soon, hopefully for longer :)

“Cosy cottage in a relaxing, tranquil spot”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Blackberry Cottage for a week. It's a lovely cosy, spotlessly clean property with lots of touches to make you feel totally at home. We really appreciated the extras: milk, sausages, coffee and tea etc.

The local area is lovely, and people are very friendly. We loved the Kilbarron pub and its chatty locals, and there's lots to see and do nearby.

The only downside was leaving. We had the best week and we hope to be back one day.

“An Amazing Self-Catering place in the center of Ireland”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage is located in a an amazing natural area in the center of Ireland. The Cottage has a specious leaving room, luxurious kitchen and three bedrooms. Each of the rooms has its own shower.
A very quite place, quite far from any urban area. Exactly what we looked for.
There is plenty of space outside the cottage.
The fact that the Cottage is located in the center of Ireland, enabled us to travel to the west of Ireland (Cliffs of Moher) and to the south (Cork area).
The hosts were very friendly.

“Relaxing and a 5 star accommodation”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

Wow, what can we say! Wonderful......We came for a family gathering and at the same time a to relax and enjoy all that part of Ireland can offer. It was certainly relaxing as the cottage was set in magnificent grounds, was so peaceful and it all seemed brand new. We wanted for nothing as everything, including a starter food pack was provided. There was a fantastic wood burning fire(but also central heating if required). The bedrooms (2 on suite) were very comfortable with the beds perfect. We loved the cottage, the amenities and the lovely villages surrounding. We went to the nearby lake for a stroll and ended up canoeing! A first time for everything, the instructor was very patient and we had a great time. In summary we loved the cottage, the surrounding countryside and will go again. Alison ( the owner) met us and left us her contact number - she was very knowledgable even showed us how to get to the local shops.

Thank you for the kind words and enthusiasm for Blackberry Cottage and our special corner of Ireland. We are so pleased you enjoyed the lake which is gorgeous at all times of day and at any season of the year. There is of course much more to see and do both in our immediate area and the rest of the county, if you want to alternate day trips with relaxing local walks and sampling the local eateries. Next time, perhaps try a trip to Galway or County Clare, you will find many places accessible for a day out.
There will always be a genuine welcome for you whenever you are ready to visit us again at whatever time of year you choose.

“Great cottage for a peaceful family get-away”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Our family (2 adults and 3 older children/teenagers) stayed in this cottage for 4 days and wished we had longer. It was a great place to stay with loads to do in the area. Having said that the location was also rural and very peaceful.
The cottage, itself, is spacious, very clean and had fantastic facilities (2 bedrooms were en suite in addition to the main bathroom). After a long journey we really appreciated the generous welcome pack left for us. The high quality household utensils were better than usually found in holiday accommodation and as good as some homes. The owner was very knowledgeable and helpful with lots of information about the area - we would particularly recommend the kayaking!
We were visiting family so didn't get time to explore as much as we would have liked!
One minor point - slightly more detailed instructions on how get there would have beed good, although we did manage to find it!
We would love to go back again, and stay for longer.

Thank You ! Great to have guests who are keen to explore our locality and we are always happy to offer help and advice on local places and activities on foot and by car. Yes, we are located in a rural location close to the lake and understand that it can be quite hard to find us particularly if guests arrive at night ! We are always happy to meet and guide guests and have done so on several occasions.
For directions,we suggest guests look at our website page (which we are permitted to provide once a booking has been confirmed) on the 'contact and book' page where very detailed directions including road numbers and GPS co-ordinates are to be found. We do provide contact phone numbers and e mail for guests to reach us .
Hope to see you all again and maybe take the kayaking to the next level !

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We were delighted to welcome visitors from Israel and that you were pleased with the cottage.
In actual fact, Coolbawn is fairly centrally located for visiting the rest of Ireland !Additionally, there is an abundance of activity, not simply confined to the lake, also a wealth of history right on the doorstep. I truly hope you will return to us and take a look more locally next time.

“Amazing cottage, amazing scenery and lots to do”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My second visit to this lovely cottage. An easy flight over from Liverpool and then arrived at the cottage within the hour. Blackberry Cottage is spacious and has everything you could need especially with the broadband facility. The garden has lovely views and there are plenty of great walks around the area. We camped out in Portumna one night and had a day in Terryglass by the lake.
Hope to return soon...
