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 house was excellent! Everything about it was perfect - great location in town, great location on the island, the house layout/interior was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped. We had the best time staying here - highly recommend it!

About the neighbourhood
Bowmore is the capital of Islay and is the main shopping centre for the island. Within a 5 minute walk from Mo Dachaidh you will find the Co-op grocery store, butcher, chemist, restaurants, gift and coffee shops as well as 3 hotels with bars and restaurants. The famous Bowmore Distlley, with its excellent visitor centre is located in School Street just of the Main Street next to the swimming pool. Bowmore, situated in the centre of the island is an ideal base for exploring the whole island, and whatever direction, distillery, beach or historic site, is just a short car journey away.
Getting around
The bus stops are less than a 5minute walk from the property, both located in Main Street outside the Co-op going south to Port Ellen, Laphroig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. On the opposite side of Main Street the bus stop for Port Askaig to the north end or round Lochindaal to Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Portnahaven. Please note that during the school term these routes the bus stop can be from the local school at certain times so please check the bus timetable. We would, however, recommend sightseeing the Island by car as the buses only run to the main villages. For visitors without their own transport, there is the option to hire a car, hire a taxi or book a private tour for a day offered by all the taxi companies
