“Lovely house ,great location,easy access to major towns ideal would stay again”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Enjoyed our stay very much, friendly helpful neighbours, very difficult to find fault..My young two year old grandson fascinated with the sheep and cattle in field next door. Great countryside experience for him . Easy access to local towns and shopping, plus great access for sight seeing

“Perfect Base for our trip to Mayo”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The house was large and clean with decent sized bedrooms, the heating system kept the house warm and cozy and we all had a wonderful time, Any little issues were dealt with very quickly. It was also very good value for the length of our stay in Balla and was very close to town for a few trips to some of the excellent pubs especially Mannions on a Tuesday night for an amazing traditional music session!

Great spacious house with good spacious garden and massive driveway, stayed with my partner and a 2 and 4 year old who enjoyed the space to run around. Great location for visiting westport, knock, ballina, castlebar, claremoris and galway. Close to kids playpark, Very clean and homely with all essentials. Had a great stay will be back again and the lady who greeted us was lovely. Very happy with our stay!.

“Excellent base for touring the West of Ireland”

I stayed at Lavins house, Balla with my husband and 4 children for a long weekend over Easter. It was the perfect base for visiting Galway, Roscommon and Mayo. The children had fun watching the new lambs in the field next door and playing football in the sizeable garden. We look forward to a return visit!

“Great house great location”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed with our three young boys for 3 nights. The house was spotlessly clean and a brilliant size. Lovely setting with sheep in the field next door, great base for sightseeing. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
