Very lovely cottage in a quiet countryside at only ten minutes from Portumna.
A lovely guest, Lena, always ready to help you and to do all what she can for you to enjoy your journey. We’re impatient to come back !…

“Welcome Return”

We have stayed with Lena many times and every time she is helpful and friendly, she can't do enough for us. If we ever had any queries she was always happy to help but we never felt as though she intruded on our holiday. As usual, the house was immaculate. Having a burner in the cottage made the house feel warm and cosy, we lit it nearly every night just because it made the house feel homely. We love the peace and quiet of the countryside and the local shop is only a short walk away on country lanes. We visited Portumna and Killimor for something to eat and were impressed with the quality of food. We had our annual trip to Turoe Pet Farm in Bullaun with some cousins and it only cost 75 Euros for 2 adults and 6 children. We spent all day there, until it closed at 7pm, so we definitely had our moneys worth. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced, well worth a visit! We also had a couple of trips into Galway which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back again because we love staying in the Old Post Office and Lena makes our stay problem free - a perfect hostess!

“Fantastic and unique step back in time”

I happened upon a photo of the Old Post Office cottage when looking for something near the Galway coast and I am so glad to have found it. the cottage was immaculate and Lena was such a wonderful host. She supplied us with breakfast provisions on the spot when she discovered we had not made it to the store, and gave great recommendations about routes, restaurants and sights. The cottage itself was immaculate, and a wonderful step back in time. We loved the chickens! We also really enjoyed Portumna's castle and workhouse, and live music in Terryglass.

A great place to relax or to use as a day-trip base from which to vacation. Lena is a warm, welcoming hostess with lots of great advice regarding nearby sights and restaurants. The location is very quiet, the beds are comfy and the wood/peat stove adds lots of warmth and charm. The location may be country, but its only about a 10 minute drive to Portumna for shopping, restaurants, pubs, and sight-seeing. We really loved staying here!
