This was a gorgeous cottage that had been featured in an Irish interior design magazine. It oozed charm and was beautifully furnished; the owners had fresh flowers artfully displayed in the cottage, along with a welcome pack of scones, butter, jam, strawberries and freshly whipped cream. The property was delightful, complete with an adorable donkey and three goats, chickens and a cat named Bert. The area is one of the most peaceful and beautiful in all of Ireland. We can't say enough about our week at Lough Ine; it truly was one of the nicest cottages we've ever rented--we are already looking forward to returning.
