My husband and I stayed at The Humble Daisy for 7 nights. The warm welcome we received from Mary Rose was lovely and friendly. Herfamily too were very helpful went out of their way to help and give advise. The cottage is truly beautiful. Warm and cosy. The fire was lit for us on our arrival with a bottle of wine and two glasses waiting to be opened. The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you would need. The boat was a wonderful bonus and we took it out onto the Lough several times during our stay. I would highly recommend a stay at this little hidden gem.
From the moment of arrival you know your somewhere special .A scented candle and wild flowers greet you at the door and as you are drawn to the smell of the log fire in the sitting room there is a lovely bottle of wine and glasses awaiting you, you know your on holidays.
The house itself is spotlessly clean and has everything you would need . A lovely courtyard off the kitchen with garden furniture is ideal for the morning cuppa or relaxation in the evenings.
Just a short stroll down the lane to the lake you will find the boat but as storm Ali was on her way it was too choppy to venture out.
Mary Rose couldn't have been more helpful with local information on places to see and where to eat but the house has plenty of leaflets on this.
I would highly recommend this beautiful house, you will not be disappointed.
The Humble Daisy is truly a wonderful Irish getaway from it all cottage. Don't be fooled by the outside size, it is quite large inside. Our party was at max capacity and not once did we feel tight in the space. There are 3 full bathrooms as well. The house is definitely in the country, so if you are from the States, like us, I hope you are truly wanting to get away from it all because they don't have a million shopping centers in Ireland like we do here. We loved everything about this house. We were lucky to stay there during the heat wave so we had beautiful days for the entire trip. We took out the boat, did some fishing (no luck) and some swimming. The house is about a little over an hour away from Galway City. We were able to visit many sites during the day because it didn't get dark until 11 pm. The cottage owner and neighbors were VERY friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this house!
If you are looking for a quite relaxing break this is ideal, the cottage is stunning and tastefully decorated to a very high standard with everything you need. We went horse riding in Slieve Aughty which was great fun and had a lovely meal in Woodford. Not ideal for kids especially in the winter and any more than 3 days would have been a struggle with them however i would have stayed a week or more ! Mary Rose and her family were extremely helpful and welcoming and a pleasure to deal with and many thanks for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage !
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.
