The cottage is located in a beautiful part of the Connemara, with its isolation providing access to delightful walking paths. Brian is a welcoming host, although on the occasion we used his cottage it was evident that Brian is also a busy man. The cottage was not ready for us to occupy even though we arrived after the agreed time. Brian had to hustle and get clean linen for us. He would have had time to clean the cottage if we had been prepared to disappear for a couple of hours at the end of a long day on the road. We are unable to comment on the tours Brian advertises because, although he undertook to arrange these upon our arrival, he was way too busy for touring. That said, the cottage accommodated the 4 adults in our party comfortably and the furnishings and appliances suited us admirably.
Brian's cottage was very comfortable for our family. The children loved playing with Brian's very children-fiendly dog "Puff". Brian and his wife were very kind and helpfull. Brian gave us valuable information on where to go to hear live music. Because the Wifi had stopped working the evening we arrived, he went down to Barna on the same evening to get it running again. We highly recommend this cottage if you want to visit Galway (very nice and relaxed town) and the Connemara area.
Brian est un hôte formidable de part son accueil et ses bons conseils concernant les visites à faire et les bons restaurant à fréquenter.
Sa gentillesse compense largement les petits désagréments d'une cabine de douche pas trop bien entretenue.
Le gîte est idéalement situé pour visiter le Connemara et nous avons passé un agréable séjour malgré le temps un peu capricieux.
