Spectacular Home!

  • 5 of 5

Hard to find words to describe how wonderful this property is. Mask Cottage is a misnomer--this is a magnificent, beautifully decorated home, complete with high end appliances, including a wine cooler, a full working sauna, and enough room for a very large family. But best of all, every square inch of it was immaculate! Not only were the living areas pristine, even the cupboards and closets were spotless. We've never stayed in such luxurious quarters. The owners were helpful and welcoming, and responded immediately to any questions we had. Situated on a hill above Lough Mask, the "cottage" was secluded and private, yet convenient to the attractions of the beautiful Connemara region. My wife and I, along with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson spent the most wonderful week ever in this gorgeous home.

Beautiful & spacious cottage. Inviting & comfortable, we made ourselves at home & made use of the many amenities. We enjoyed coming "home" each night to cook dinner or have a snack before bed. We felt safe & rested well. Although usually tired by the end of the day, we did enjoy the beautiful sauna at least once. We happened to have pretty good weather during our week in Ireland & the views of Lough Mask were picturesque. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace & quiet of the landscape dotted with colorful sheep. The flower boxes were lovely, was well as the manicured lawn. Many artful & thoughtful touches around the home made us feel welcome & special. Thank-you for the gift & allowing us to stay in your wonderful cottage!

Sehr schönes Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Ein schön gelegenes, gut ausgestattetes und sehr sauberes Cottage. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereit, aber nie aufdringlich.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Ein erstklassiges Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5

Die Besitzer haben ein sehr schönes Ferienhaus in wunderschöner Lage. Die Räume sind großzügig und geschmackvoll möbliert. Besonderen Wert legt der Besitzer auf Teppiche. Davon gibt es viele Sammlerstücke. Ich bin Opernregisseur und kann das Haus als Rückzugsdomizil für Urlaub und Arbeit sehr empfehlen.

Wunderschön und immer eine Empfehlung wert!

  • 5 of 5

Ich war nun schon mehrmals zu Gast in diesem wunderschönen, geschmackvoll und mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichteten Haus. Meine zwei Schwestern, die das erste Mal in Irland waren, bestätigen dies gerne. Man hat sehr viel Platz, tolle Ausblicke auf den Lough Mask und was besonders hervorzuheben ist: Die perfekte Sauberkeit des Hauses! Ich habe schon viele Ferienhäuser gebucht, aber dieses übertrifft alle.

Die Einrichtung ist geschmackvoll und edel. Alles ist liebevoll und mit Herz ausgesucht und dekoriert, vom Teppich bis zum zum Treppengeländer (unglaublich schön). Jedes der drei Doppelzimmer hat ein eigenes Bad mit Toilette.

Ein Ferienhaus, an dem es absolut nichts auszusetzen gibt. Wir können es nur weiterempfehlen. Qualität hat ihren Preis und hier bekommt man wirklich nur das Beste.

Vielen Dank an die Vermieter für die Gastfreundschaft und wir kommen gerne wieder!

einfach nur Traumhaft...

  • 5 of 5

Das schönste Ferienhaus das wir je hatten. Es hat den Charme eines alten, liebevoll restaurierten Cottages, sehr gepflegt und top ausgestattet. Umso überraschter waren wir als uns der Vermieter erzählte das er das Haus erst Anfang der 2000er gebaut hat. Ein nettes Vermieterehepaar das immer erreichbar war und sich um alle unsere Fragen gekümmert hat - nochmals liebe Grüße an dieser Stelle.

Die Lage mit Blick über den See und einem schönen Hinterland ist klasse und lädt zu kleineren Wanderungen direkt von der Haustüre aus ein. Der kleine Ort Clonbur hat alles Notwendige, vor allem Pub`s mit gutem Essen (Burke`s Pub und Restaurant ). Auch für Ausflüge entlang der irischen Westküste

( Conemara Nationalpark, Burren, Cliffs of Mohar... ) ein guter Ausgangspunkt.

Insgesamt ein traumhafter Urlaub mit großem Erholungsfaktor
