“Magical little cottage”

Myself, my husband and two kids have just stayed in berties cottage it was a fantastic experience to get to stay in an authentic Irish thatched cottage. Michael the host was most accommodating. The large fire place with turf burning to welcome us the first day. The bus stopped just out side the front door of the cottage. We had a car and drove everywhere but was good to know we had the option to leave the car. It had all the mod cons anyone travelling could need. It's so close to kinvara a beautiful seaside village 5 mins drive. We enjoyed stopping off in clairnbridge nearby also. Overall a fantastic and reasonably priced cottage. Thanks Michael.....

“Cosy thatched cottage for family break”

We stayed in Bertie's cottage for 4 nights over Halloween mid term break.
Our purpose was to visit family in the locality and this cottage suited our family of 5 for this short stay.
The Cottage was refurbished by Michael to give you a taste of Auld Eire with Peat for the range fire and plenty of books about the local area. Michael greeted us and made sure we had everything to keep us comfortable.
Good oil heating (essential off season!). Comfy beds. Bedrooms for 4 people (2 double beds - our youngest was on a put up bed, which was grand).
I would certainly recommend this as a base for exploring The West, good location between Clare & Galway city only 20mins drive away.

Beautifully restored thatched cottage, nicely decorated in tribute to a friend, well equipped with everything, some may not like it having road frontage but we found no issue with any noise, well located to tour Clare and Galway counties, great restaurants locally within 5 minutes drive and local pub and servo just down the road.

Bertie's cottage was a perfect holiday retreat, renovated with all the mod cons but has kept its identity we felt very privileged to be able to stay here. The location is excellent, bus to Galway at front door and easy access to Galway, Connemara and the Burren. The local garage/ convenience store was a benefit. The take away next to the garage was very good. The local pub is next door, however Michael told us there was another bar close by- check this out.
Everything was spotless Michael provided a great range of essentials to ensure a good start to our break.
Michael was a very considerate host eg providing wood and turf regularly for the wood burning stove. Loved the whole experience I highly recommend this lovely cottage !!!
