Beautiful house which sits sympathetically in the wonderful surrounding landscape and we loved everything about our holiday there.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by Anne and Raymond. Fresh flowers, fruit, home baked cakes, as well as other well thought out touches, were awaiting us. The kitchen is extremely well stocked for those of us who like to cook, too
The house is a dream and we spent some time wandering around and staring out of the windows before settling down, with a glass of wine, on the balcony. Evensong, from the birds, and gently lapping water provided the soundscape.
The following morning we were delighted to see a variety of birds on the feeders, at the back of the house, which entertained us as we ate breakfast. Goldfinches, greenfinches and chaffinches were amongst the visitors.
During our stay we enjoyed a various trips out and about, but also loved the walk along the isthmus, joined by either Oscar or Sammy, two local dogs! We made sure we were back most evenings to take up our places at the dining room window and watch the changing light. I won’t attempt to describe it, you have to be there! But the most ethereal view was from the top of the hill, at the back of the house, across Clew Bay. A view which stopped us in our tracks and which has filled our thoughts every day since. Spectacular.
Croibh Inis is something else. Something very special. We miss you.
Many thanks to Raymond and Anne for the loan x
