Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

This was our second visit to Carrickport Cottage and again it didn’t disappoint. It’s just so relaxing. Such a great space for all the family to enjoy a week away together. On the rainy days the kids enjoyed playing pool and air hockey in the games room and when the sun shone we enjoyed a bbq and a few pints of Guinness. Such a lovely part of the world - lovely Leitrim.

We have just returned from the most fabulous week at Carrickport Cottage. The cottage itself is fantastic. Very spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything needed for a relaxing family break. The games room was a big hit with both adults and teenagers alike. We were blessed with sunshine for our whole week and made the most of our surroundings with family bbqs. Carrick-on-Shannon is a beautiful wee village with great hospitality in McHughs pub - who pour a great pint of Guinness. Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet Helen as she was away on holiday, but was only ever a phone call away, with Keith was on hand if we needed anything. Although everything was great and we didn’t need to bother him. Daisy, our dog, loved the lake and enjoyed running about in the large garden. Moon River cruise is a must. A lovely boat trip down the Shannon. Would highly recommend Carrickport Cottage, and all the communication and updates from Helen throughout the booking was excellent. Thank you Helen and Keith.

Had a wonderful 7 night stay in late March/early April. Cottage is beautiful, well equiped and in a lovely quiet setting. Kids (and adults) loved the upstairs games room. Rooms are very spacious, comfortable and cosy. Helen and Keith were extremely helpful. Hope to return in the future.

Wonderful stay at Carrickport cottage last week. The weather was awful but thankfully Carrickport cottage has so much to offer and we still had a great holiday even though we couldn't go outside much! We were 4 adults and 4 kids ages 3,4,5 and 6 and the kids had so much fun in the games room upstairs. The house is so well equipped with everything that you could possibly need, definitely one of the nicest houses we've stayed in over the years. Very spacious, clean, homely and we'd love to visit again!

from the very beginning of booking this holiday it has been a pleasure. Helen answered all of our questions including when she was away herself! thanx to her air code we found the cottage easily. the cottage itself was even better than we expected. clean, spacious and with everything we needed. the games room was perfect. also having board games and a good cable tv selection added to make it a very special holiday. the only thing that could have possibly made it any better was to meet the dogs earlier....we wanted to take them home with us! a brilliant holiday with no complaints and would recommend it to all! our thanks to Helen and Kieth.

We had a really enjoyable stay in Carrickport Cottage. Helen & Keith could not have been more helpful and friendly. The house is extremely well laid out and furnished with plenty of pots, pans, crockery etc. There was no shortage of turf and kindling if we wanted to light the lovely big stove although the central heating was very good even without the stove being lit. Every room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and the blackout blinds a godsend when you don't want the children to wake up at the crack of dawn! The games room upstairs is perfect for both children and adults alike. The children really enjoyed the Tyre swings which were in the garden. Harvey and Tosh, their two lovely Golden Retrievers, were a big hit with all three children also as they were so friendly and playful. We had such a lovely surprise on arrival to find a bottle of wine and some nibbles in the Welcome Basket! A really nice touch which we certainly weren't expecting. We'll definitely come and stay in Carrickport Cottage again and have no hesitation in recommending it to any family, or indeed, a group of adults. Thank you Helen & Keith.

This was our second time staying at Carrickport Cottage and I can highly recommend everything about it, it's beautifully presented and has everything on hand for young children, including the owner's lovely friendly dogs! The games room has been a big hit with the children and adults alike on both our visits and is a real bonus to the cottage. It is very spacious with three bedrooms and two bathrooms and the setting is really tranquil. It's very close to the beautiful town of Carrick on Shannon and other local attractions. Many thanks to Helen again for accommodating us and we hope to return again!

We were group of 7 friends with doggies looking for place to spend quiet and relaxing New Years eve. Carrickport Cottage appeared to be a perfect place to do so. House is very spacious, with 3 bedrooms that are lovely fitted to pleased every guest. There is also great entertainment room on the upper floor for evening team games. Despite cold weather outside cottage was really warm and fireplace makes the house even more cosy. Great communication with the owner before the arrival and warm welcome received. We really enjoyed our stay there.
