The Trainor family will cherish the memories of our two weeks holiday in this beautiful house. We packed so much into our holiday with the main highlights being-Carrickfinn beach, fishing in Bunbeg, eating in the Lobster Pot, going for long walks and catching crabs in the rock pools. The most beautiful site was when a stag stopped by outside the house and even visited a second night-we have the photos to prove it! Watch out for the stag between 11pm and midnight. It is a home for all the family-our 3 children enjoyed it so much and the installation of sky ensured the kids didn't get cabin fever! You have catered for all our needs and the modern gadgets- especially the touch pad oven made for a luxurious stay. We will definitely be back.
See you soon
