Absolutely loved our time at the cottage! The place was spotless.
Beds comfortable.Everything that you wanted was there.
Carmel's apple pie and bread was wonderful!
They were a lovely couple and so friendly.
We loved walking by the sea/harbour every morning!
We will be back!

“Irish Accomodation at its best”

Four of us stayed a week at Lals Cottage, warm comfortable and easy. Six would have been just as comfortable.
The owner offered a warm welcome and was regularly on hand checking we had all we needed to be comfortable.
This is authentic 'old' Ireland ,with a modern 'laid back' feel to it. We'll be back.

What can I say? It was lovely. Carmel met us upon our arrival with a friendly welcome and a chat, not to mention the delicious apple pie/tart and other treats. The history of the cottage is rich and heart warming. Very cozy, clean and welcoming. Much larger than it looks from the picture! The village of Spiddal was also wonderful. Several great places to eat and a wonderful local resteraunt/pub (Tigh Giblin) with great tradional Irish music sessions. The food was excellent. Had several wonderful evenings there! Very convenient to Galway for shopping and night life as well. I just adored the cottage and highly recommend it. I know I will be back. Thanks for everything, Carmel. We miss your lovely cottage already!

“Great location, great cottage”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Picture postcard cottage. Tigh Lal is very well located in the heart of Spiddal village with everything on your door step. The cottage has all mod cons but still keeps all it's traditional charms. Carmel and Martin are perfect hosts, so helpful!!

Tigh Lal is a beautiful cottage in a village so full of character and so many friendly local people. It is basically the beginning of the Connemara region which is breathtakingly beautiful. We enjoyed a few pints of Guinness while being entertained by many wonderfully talented musicians at Tigh Giblin. The cottage was inspiring and cosy, Carmen friendly and hospitable. We hope to return again one day. Thank you so much.
