We had a wonderful trip to Dohooma with 2 adults and 5 children with another couple with 3 children staying with us for 2 nights (that turned to 3 as they didn't want to leave!) The house has everything you will need and more. It is spotless clean and with plenty to do on a rainy day including pool, darts, a wii and other games.WiFi is available and TV has Netflix YouTube etc. Lots of towels, turf for the fire and tea and coffee for us to use and even some biscuits when we arrived. The views are fabulous and your neighbours are cows (actual cows!!) The kids had them all named and we also spotted a hare passing the window on a few occasions.
We did a lot of driving in the first few days to Westport, Achill and Blacksod lighthouse and so the last few days were mainly spent relaxing in the house with the odd trip to belmullet which is about twenty minutes away and has plenty of places to eat. Locally there is the sea rod Inn where we had some lovely Guinness and the kids made use of the sweet shop next door. They couldn't believe the same lady that served in the bar also served them sweets next door! We didn't get a chance to have some food there but we heard it is lovely. Lorraine who looks after the house was a great help always and I would highly recommend this holiday home for some relaxation. The price was so reasonable that I just wasn't expecting the quality we got.
'We had a most enjoyable stay in the house over Christmas. It is large and roomy with lots of different areas to relax in. Even in a large group it never felt crowded. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped, there was no need to bring anything along, but would recommend buying groceries on the way. The house has wonderful views out to sea, great nearby places to visit and a very friendly Irish pub just 5 mins away. I would highly recommend a visit.'
We stayed here in May 2015 for a family gathering with 9 adults and 2 children staying in the house. Lorraine was very helpful before and during our stay, giving us clear directions to find the house and recommendations on things to do.
The house itself was very clean with more than enough space to cater for us all comfortably. We thought there was an issue with one of the showers but Lorraine organised for a plumber to look at it that same day and it turned out it was us not turning switches in the correct sequence!
The area itself is very remote and extremely picturesque. I would recommend bringing all supplies you think you might need for your stay. For small things like bread a milk there is a small shop in the pub up the road, Sea Rod Inn.
On one of the nights we organised with Bernie at the Sea Rod Inn to provide catering for a meal in the house. The food was really good and very reasonably priced. It was all stress free with nothing too big of an ask.
I would highly recommend staying here to get away from it all and have a relaxing break.
