This was our third visit to this house. We keep going back to the Burren because of its beauty in any season. We have 3 children and it is a safe and comfortable house for all of us. A short stroll into town but with country views the house has everything we need and we look forward to our next...

This property did not live up to our expectations at all. 1300€ for a week is way over priced. Cottage is a small 5 bed. Furnishings are old and tatty. The whole place needs renovating and a good deep clean. Wouldn’t go back.

Management response:

The price reflects the last week in July which is high season. Sorry that you felt the house needs renovating - it was only built recently, to modern specs, but I will look at the furniture and see what I can improve. We appreciate your feedback.

You really have to look carefully to find the small lane leading to the house. The house is in a quiet space. It provides everything (including WiFi) to relax and has plenty of room for seven people. You are instructed by a folder how to operate the utilities. Obviously the house is managed by an agency. We would have preferred...

Management response:

Thanks for feedback. We provide toilet paper in each bathroom to start you off. Not paper towels or spices (just salt & pepper), but we will happily provide these from now on. It's a learning process!!
