“Remote but Scenic Location and substantial Accomodation”

This large property is VERY remote, but in a really great location with lovely view of the lake. The weather was not great when we were there but in good weather this would be a fantastic location for a quite holiday. The accommodation is substantial, we were a mature party of 5 - we spent most of our time in the large kitchen 0 there was a lounge but we didn't use it. The Wifi was using an dongle and wasn't great. The kitchen Utensils were in a terrible condition and really should be replaced. We had a really enjoyable stay and would return if they promised they had sorted out the pots and pans.

Dear John,
Thank you for your review.
Yes, as you said our house is in a very remote location and because of this we have had problems with wifi connection in the past. We have started using a dongle because we believe it gives us better connection than a fixed line. I know its not 'perfect' but it's the best we can provide given our position by the lake.
We regularly update bits and pieces for the house, but due to the high volume of guests some items go missing or get damaged for one reason or another without us knowing.
Thank you for drawing attention to the pots and pans, I will ensure they are replaced.
best wishes
Marissa

“The Long House”

The house was exactly as it appears on the website. The kitchen and living room are bliss and the beds are really comfortable. We were there over Easter and the weather was wonderful so much so that three people dared to swim! Beautiful countryside surrounding this gem of a holiday home. We would certainly go back in a heart beat. The village of Cong is sweet and if you have a special celebration Ashford Castle is a great venue for a delicious dinner. Thank you Tim we had a wonderful time!

The Longhouse was a truly magical place to stay for a holiday The house was very comfortable with everything we needed and set in a stunning location. Great sunsets at night over the water followed by star spangled skies ! We took a boat onto Lough Corrib for the day, its a huge lake with crystal clear water .The weather was too warm for fishing but the children had fun swimming in the lake.!!
Highly recommend a visit and hope to return ourselves next year.
