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.

Mary Rose the host is such a wonderful lady that leaves no stone unturned. The accommodation is extremely clean and beautifully decorated. My family had a amazing stay.

This is the best of the best!
This was an amazing Holiday Home. Easily the best we have found in Ireland to date and we holiday here every year.. The owner Mary Rosy is a lovely person who takes genuine happiness from seeing her guests enjoying their stay. She was a real treasure. The house was spacious, spotless, beautiful, private and wonderfully country. It even has that split front door which makes for amazing photos . The boat was a real treat and our daughters had a great time using the boat old style with the oars! Mary Rose let us bring our Border Collie with us and it made for a fantastic family holiday. This really was the best place we have stayed at home in Ireland and I cant recommend it enough. 10/10.

Slice of heaven
We stayed here the first week of July 2020 when the country had been reopened after the first lockdown. The owner had taken every step necessary to ensure all COVID-19 guidelines were adhered to. The place was immaculate. Hand sanitizer was provided in the hall and extra cleaning products were provided in the kitchen. I think possibly the previous reviewers describe the place better than I can - it is everything they say and more. And yes, I too am reluctant to share the secret 😊 Suffice to say: The host Mary Rose was a lady and could not do enough for us. We were greeted with a warm “socially distanced” welcome, flowers in the hall, lit candles, classical music and a bottle of red wine. Interior finished to an extremely high standard. The pictures do not do it justice, it is much more spacious and luxurious than it appears. Lake was a joy and an adventure. Felt like a trip back to another world. Have booked return visit already for next year, fingers crossed will be able to go. Highly highly recommend.

Superb,But don't tell everyone...
I've read all the reviews from previous vacationers who have stayed at The Humble Daisy.....They all have had a wonderful time and enjoyed the fantastic hospitality shown by Mary Rose( the owner)...The fire lit and a bottle of red on arrival....Rare !! The spacious warm cosy so well equipped cottage..understated by the advertised description..also very rare. if you've read " Swallows and Amazons " then this is your place,the tranquil silence and a slow walk down the lane you arrive on the edge of Lake Derg, meet the friendly donkeys,and maybe take the boat out for a spin which is moored up in it's own boat shed in the same field as the donkeys,each step down the lane takes you back in time. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay,Beau the Rottie loved his time there,we were lucky with the weather but hey,if not, pop some logs on the fire and read a good book. Finally,I was tempted not to want to tell anyone about this piece of heaven..shear selfishness on my part but I would be doing Mary Rose a complete injustice, so, if you like empty roads ,wonderful friendly people,views to die for,then book this place before you die,take a telescope for the dark night sky and an easel and paints if you are that way inclined. Thank You Mary Rose,you will see us again.

Hidden gem
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.

Comfort at its best
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.

Perfect country getaway!
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!

5 star accommodation, facilities and hospitality !
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 !

A Great Relaxing Week at the Humble Daisy
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.

A Truly Relaxing Week
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.
