“Good, but could be better.”

There is lots to like about this holiday rental; comfortable living spaces, large and clean bedrooms and great to have the disability access. However for the price we paid - 1,300 euros for a week, it should be better. Firstly what the photos don't show you is the very large neighbouring house that is approximately 20 yards away and bang in the middle of what is otherwise a spectacular sea view. Also little things were frustrating such as the dining room table which doesn't fit the 10 people the house holds around it, not enough dining room chairs for everyone to sit on, a grill which doesn't work properly, lack of appropriate glasses. By themselves they aren't significant, but add them together and it detracted from the experience. We still had a great time, and there is a lot to recommend about this accommodation, but if a holiday rental is going to charge a premium price then they should provide a premium product.

Hi Fred,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you found there were some areas that were frustrating for you during your holday. There are still spectacular views from the house and the decking areas, despite the house having been built, which was completely out of our control.
The table in the sun room is a table which can be added to the main dining room table and it can then easily fit 10 people. There are 2 extra dining room chairs in the sun room and two more in the hallway which are to be used with the extension of the table.
We are always available to attend to any issues any guests may have immediately and we are sorry that you did not bring this to our attention, and we would have dealt with them promptly, to enable you to have a fully enjoyable holiday.
Thanks again for choosing Barrtra Lodge.

Great vacation! Arrived from Florida with husband, two teenage girls, and parents. We were able to make day trips and come home to a nice house and enjoy comfortable beds, warm showers, and breakfast. My extended family in Limerick were able to hang out for the day (large house). We were a little taken back at how small the appliances were(fridge was the size of a college dorm room fridge) You really could not store much in the fridge. The washer and dryer were tiny-The dryer never seemed to dry clothes. Overall we had a wonderful stay! The town of Lahinch was great! No problems driving! We drove all over Ireland and had a great time.

Several cousins and their families from the USA, UK and other parts of Ireland met here for a week of merry togetherness in this lovely property. It never felt crowded and there was ample hot water at all times. The young surfers appreciated the sauna.Our many visitors were all impressed with the house.
Cooking was easy with many utensils and plentiful pots and pans. Lots of crockery and cutlery too. Barrtra Lodge has a very lived in feel which means you can make yourself at home straightaway. Hope to be back!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Cannot fault this beautiful property at all. Very well equipped and catered ideally for our large group which included adults, children & babies. Very spacious, great location and gorgeous views. Seamus & Geraldine's hospitality & knowledge was outstanding and I'd have no hestitation in recommending this property to anyone. Our only complaint is that our stay was too short so we'll definitely be back!

“It was beautiful”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our german relatives travelled to Ireland for their first (and not last) time and we stayed in Barrtra Lodge. The house is located just perfect with a lovely view and everything you need is nearby. Fully equiped kitchen, everything is up to date and clean. We received a warm and very friendly welcome and enjoyed every minute at Barrtra Lodge.
