We stayed 3 nights as a group of 7 attending a local wedding. There was plenty of room for all of us and with showers in every bedroom there were no queues for the bathroom on the morning of the wedding!! All in all a perfect house in a perfect location for a wonderful celebration!
I would recommend Rosebrook house when planning a visit to Westport as the location is great, only a few minutes drive into the town. Spacious house, comfortably held 10 people. In addition to the expected amenities the owner Michael also provided a good selection of books, dvds and cds for use during our stay which was a nice touch. We will definitely visit again!
Hi we enjoyed our stay in westport. Great town. The house was in a good location. 2min drive from town. Close to everything. And a petrol stations and shop just a short drive or walk away. House was warm and comfortable. All was provided and tea and coffee was available on arrival. I would return
We really enjoyed our stay at rosebrook house, the location was just perfect as it was 2 minutes outside of wesport :-D we couldn't have found a better place to stay, and will return in the future :-D
We stayed 4 nights at Rosebrook House, using it as our central hub for our travels around County Mayo.
Clear directions to property provided promptly by owner after final payment.
Quiet and beautiful setting with gorgeous views of Croagh Patrick. Some of the best sleep we had in Ireland.
Plenty of room for our party of 4 adults.
Washer/dryer was very welcome.
Prompt communication from owner when contacted about issues.
House was very dirty when we arrived. Floors had not been cleaned, carpet not vacuumed (vacuum cord had been cut some time before our arrival, which someone tried to fix with electrical tape), pet hair embedded into carpets and living room furniture. My husband spent an hour cleaning the wood floors so our socks wouldn't keep sticking. We ended up avoiding the living room completely after our initial arrival because of the hair and pet smell. We didn't have a lot of down time, so this wasn't a real issue. After I contacted him about it, the owner did have a different vacuum dropped off the next day, so we were able to vacuum the pet hair out of the carpet in the master bedroom. Finally, most everything in the kitchen had a sticky film covering it. I noticed it when trying out the cd player, but it was also over everything sitting on the window sills and out on the counter.
The house also needs maintenance. When we arrived, 6 halogen ceiling light bulbs were burned out. We dug around and found 2 bulbs for the dining room, which my husband replaced. In one of the bedrooms, there was no cold water in the vanity sink and the bedside lamp did not work (we think there might have been a faulty power strip).
When contacted, the owner did express regret that we had found the house in disrepair when we arrived. Ultimately, he ended up offering us a free night's stay the next time we were in the area. It also appears that he authorized a refund of $200 yesterday, but there was no explanation given.
Overall, I will rate Rosebrook House very positively for location, setting, and size, but negatively for cleanliness and upkeep.
