The property is set back off the road and there are nice views of the surrounding countryside. It is in a very quiet spot but you are close enough to the local town of Balla to walk in and it is a very good base to explore the country. the property is beautifully kept and Prior to our trip the owner communicated with us very well and when we arrived we were given a lovely welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. The Irish people are very hospitable and We will definitely be returning.
..We had a great time, quiet and relaxing and the people very welcoming country to discover absolutely
We had a great time staying at Lavins house. The rooms were spacious and it was very comfortable. Close proximity to grocery shopping (only about 7 miles away in either direction). Balla is very close but grocery shopping is limited to necessities. We ate at a local pub one night which was great and just a few minutes from the house. There was someone there to greet us on arrival and show us the ropes which was very nice. The soaker tub was amazing after a long day of travel. Great location for visiting Westport, Galway and any place in the Mayo region. I would recommend getting a Wi-Fi hotspot when you rent your car if you are out of country. This made navigation to and from the house simple for us since we were from the States. The house is as advertised and well worth it. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it.

The house is clean spacious and comfortable. The service was great with prompt replies to any queries. The location offers easy access to the town of Balla and to local places of interest by car. I would really recommend the house and would definately stay there again.
We stayed at the "Lavin House" for four nights.It is a very lovely house. It is ideal for a party of eight or a large family. It is close to all amenities. We would definitely book there again, well worth the money..
