This cosy cottage nestled in the peaceful countryside of Loughrea is perfect! So relaxing and has everything we needed. Close to all the beautiful sights in the surrounding area. Martina was a fabulous host, giving us plenty of tips for our sightseeing. Would come again and highly recommend.

Martina's stone cottage was a wee slice of heaven. It was lovely and comfortable, and the country location idyllic. The evening walks were amazing, with horses, cows and donkeys coming over to greet us as we passed by. The kitchen was fully stocked with tea and coffee makings, even fresh milk in the fridge. Perfect place for a getaway that is close to the bustling Galway!

This is the perfect place to stay if you visit this part of Ireland! Martina and John are so kind. They welcomed us with a lovely cup of tea and we had a great chat. They recommended so many places off the beaten track, great restaurants and pubs and wonderful scenic drives. This interaction with our hosts made our stay so much more enjoyable! The space itself is beautiful and very comfortable. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!

Martina was welcoming and friendly. She met us at the gate, ushering us in with open arms. We talked about our joint love of dogs over tea and coffee. Martina told us about all the local tourist attractions, where to go and where to eat. Would I go back? In a heartbeat.
