“Very comfortable, friendly owners in quiet surrounds.”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014
people found this review helpful

Our hosts Marty and Anne were genuinely warm, friendly and very helpful. They provided us with lots of information about the local area including attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants. The also provided transport in and out of the village for a modest fee.

The apartment is modern, well equipped and very comfortable. On top of that it sits in beautiful, quiet rural surrounds with only the local cattle for company.

The village of Cong is an excellent place to stroll around, with lots of history to explore and plenty of places to eat and drink. A walk around the grounds of Ashford Castle and a Lough Corrib cruise are well worth the effort.

Cong is also a good spot to stay when exploring other places in this part of Ireland. It is an easy drive to places like Roundstone and Kylemore Abbey.

“Wonderful time in comfortable new cottage, what a deal!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
people found this review helpful

We've just returned from our trip to Ireland and I just had to write and praise this rental. I was especially impressed with the value, only 301 euro for a full week high season. And what a steal, the cottage was very nice, everything new and very clean. We traveled with an 11 mo baby and I didn't need to worry at all, the place was spotless too to bottom and everything from the fixtures to the shower to the kitchen appliances felt brand new. The bed was huge!

Ann was terrific, helpful and kind bu not on top of us, just the right balance, we loved meeting her granddaughter and dog rocky.

I was so pleased to find the cottage set in a beautiful rural area, charming rock walls, flowers, sheep and cows.
You'll Find it along a tiny quiet lane with only other farmhouses, but it's only 5 min drive to cong. Cong was delightful, quaint and just the right size. You can walk around the abbey, walk to ashford castle or take one of the hikes starting at the abbey.

I wish I could give 4.5 stars, but I hold back a fifth for a few reasons, all small and fixable, ask for extra towels or bring your owl bath towels, there were only two smallish ones and they didn't get dry between uses, it's so humid there. The hot water ran out after 8 min in the shower, I couldn't even wash my hair out one night. All the electrical is on a coin operated system so ask to have the tAnk temperature raised, you'll pay a little more but you won't go to bed wet and freezing with conditioner in your hair. Last of all ask for instructions on operating the lock to the front door. It's really tricky and we were accidentally locked out one night. Be sure you know how to use it and carry the key even if you think you left it open.

Hello I want to thank you for taking your time to write a review, it was lovely meeting you and having you stay, I will take on board your suggestions in relation to towels, with regards hot water I need to explain it clearer to guests that the immersion to heat the water needs to be left on according to the usage and thank you for the lovely flower plant which is still blooming.
