We were at Marsh Cottage with our two rescue greyhounds for a week in early September. Sunshine and rain showed off the stunning landscape to dramatic effect. We were on the trail of WB Yeats and visited Ben Bulben mountain, Inisfree lake and the grave in Drumcliffe. Streedagh Beach with its rolling surf is sensational. More prosaically we were impressed by the SuperValu hypermarket in Grange with its great range of wines and local produce. The house is comfortable and old-fashioned with plenty of room and 5 beds. Our dogs were made to feel especially welcome.
Superb - exactly as promised. The cottage is secluded but not too eerily remote, extremely comfortable and - important for our two rescue greyhounds - very dog friendly.
Within easy reach are the magnificent Streedagh beach and Mullaghmore Point. For the Yeats enthusiast there's Lissadell House, which is very well restored and maintained, the grave at Drumcliffe, and the beauty of Lough Gill. All under the shadow of the truly impressive Ben Bulben.
Unique location for a great holiday.
A superb welcome and the attentive proprietor have everything ready for you in this remote and well maintained traditional cottage. It became a wonderful paradise for our family and dogs with easy access to all the Yeat's Country attractions and the magnificent scenery and beaches. We particularly enjoyed our early morning walks on Streedagh Beach (5 minutes away by car) with the dogs, the Atlantic Ocean, Benbulben, millions of fossils and nobody else!
Good memories were recalled as the cottage brought back evenings and summers spent with Nana in her home on Co. Clare.
In the heart of the nature, far from... civilization, a lovely place, quiet and beautiful, close to the sea. The perfect place to rest
Two years ago I and my friend booked the marsh cottage and it was just fantastic and romantic!
In fact it was so romantic that she became (short after that) my girlfriend and (short after that)
my wife :-)!
Therefore we decided to book the marsh cottage again and we made the same fantastic experience! Ireland’s landscape is awesome and sometimes even breathtaking and the people are super nice and always willing to help! The marsh cottage is exactly the place where you want to spend a calm, romantic, recovering and “no-mobile phone is bothering me” vacation and Catherine`s support is just lovely! She did send all needed information pro-active (no need to ask), she again gave us tips of where to go and what to see and was again always making sure that we have everything we need. Just super!
So given that we have had the pleasure to experience the marsh cottage and Catherine’s hospitality twice (and certainly not the last time) we can definite recommend that you spend your vacation there!!
