Walking distance to town with a fantastic hostess!
Beautiful cottage with amenities and plenty of parking. Minutes from the coast and access to the Aran Islands/Cliffs of Moher. Phyllis was extremely helpful and lovely. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Summer vacation for family of four
We had a wonderful 11 days in Ennistymon. Phyllis and Harris were great hosts. The location is perfect (if you have a car), a short 3km to the beach in Lahinch, and we could walk into town for the pubs and restaurants. Big supermarket also in town. We were self-catering, and everything we needed was in the house. The crockery was especially nice. Summarizing: the house is ideally cut for a family of four, from the size and number of the rooms to the kitchen and living room. Highly recommendable!
