Wow! This was just perfect for us, after a busy year preparing for our wedding and buying our first home.

We arrived, and were bowled over by the incredible setting. We instantly settled in and loved watching the birds, rowing out on the lake and getting snug in front of the open fire. It was the ultimate relaxation! Also, great comfy bed for a good night's sleep. Kitchen had everything we needed, and we were able to buy groceries in Ballinrobe's Tesco.

Great for day trips to Galway, Westport (boat trips), and fabulous walks nearby.

I cannot recommend this chalet enough! Absolute perfection!

The rating I gave the chalet is mainly for its location/setting. It is far from five star luxury accommodation - it's an old boat house with all its charm and quirks.
The chalet itself is small-but its only designed for 2 people. There's no TV or toaster-but who'd want to watch TV when they have a lough in their front garden! The shower is a little temperamental,but you get used to it. Bed extremely comfy and open fire a nice touch.
The sorroudings are just heavenly- complete serenity. So much nature right at your door.
Lovely forest walks through moorehall and gorgeous scenic drives to nearby towns.
I could describe this place all day - but it still wouldn't do it justice.
