From the moment we arrived and were met by Mary Rose & Oliver who were very friendly and welcoming, they showed us around their amazing country cottage and gave us a few pointers for restaurants around the area.
The cottage has all you could want and is clean and tidy and in a great location so see the sights.
Took the boat out a few times which was great fun and something a little different and you have to pass the 2 adorable donkeys down the laneway.
Would definitely recommend a visit to the Humble Daisy and already wanting to come back.
Stayed at the Humble Daisy for a week and wasn't disappointed, on arrival we were met by Mary Rose & Oliver who were very welcoming and friendly and showed us around their lovely cottage.
The place has all you could need and is a home from home and nothing bad to say about the cottage.
Took the boat out a couple of times which was great fun and something a little different from the norm so would definitely recommend that, its only a short walk from the cottage down a lane and you have to pass their two adorable donkeys that loved getting their daily apples from us.
Location is perfect and not too far from local shops, bars and restaurants where we also ventured and met some fantastic locals.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will be booking again to take another chilled out week, also great for the dogs and they had a blast running about the fields and laneways.
Great work guys and keep up the good work.
Wow, this is such a great hide away from the world. In the middle of nowhere. A great fire place in the living room and good stuff in the kitchen (Nespresso, water heater, oven, magnetron, washing machine, etc) make this place a place where you can relax and unstress. We were welcomed by Mary Rose with a bottle of wine and a burning fire. The lake is beautiful with stunning views. The boat (with engine!) brings you to the swans and small islands. What else to say?
The cottage breathes love and dedication.
Very clean. 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms.
Don't forget to shop before arriving. The nearest supermarket is about 20 minutes driving.
We staied a week in the humble daisy and enjoyed it very much. The cottage is lovely and has everything you need, even a dishwasher. The owners are very nice and try to help you wherever they can. They even brought us a tricycle and some toys for our little son. It's perfect to go fishing and has even its own motorboat. The only negative point, if you can say so, is that it is quite secluded. To go shopping or go for a drink you have to drive 20min to Portumna (and the streets are partly very rustic), bigger cities are about an hours drive away.
For anyone looking for a REAL away-from-it-all holiday this has got to be the best I have yet encountered. If you like open log fires, the odd bottle of wine and stunning lakes, forests and great Irish food in nearby towns and rural villages - well this has to go on your list. The cottage has literally everything you need and all best quality. There was a bottle of heady wine and a log fire to welcome us - all we had to add was our choice of food for the week and a bit more wine to go with the atmosphere. My job takes me all over the world and so I don't really relax too well on "holiday" except here and I can say that I REALLY chilled for the first time in memory. If you want sport there are boats, fishing, bikes, golf (nearby) etc etc... The West of Ireland is rich in all the good things in life and in my "Humble" opinion this delightful cottage exemplifies the very best of it. N
