We are on our way home from a week's holiday in this great property. We can highly recommend it for other holidaymakers that want to visit western Ireland. Ray made us feel very welcome, in a way we have not experienced earlier on our many vacations abroad. Ray thought of every little detail, right down to the fact at the house was stocked with groceries to make sure that we had everything we needed. We have never experienced this before in our many holidays in Europe. Lovely house, great facilities, loads of information on County Mayo and other areas in Ireland. We look forward to coming back. One week was definitely not enough for us.
