Great house, lovely location
We got back from our vacation in Ireland just over a week ago, and I miss the Long House and Lough Corrib. The Long House is very well-equipped, with everything needed for a family gathering, including a fantastic kitchen with room enough to accommodate all eight of us and then some, a wood burning stove, and lots of dishwear and pots and pans. The oven runs a bit hot, but we were able to sort that out, and, honestly, cooking two whole chickens to perfect tenderness was not the worst thing that happened to our very hungry group.
The location is delightful, with the lake right out the back door. I would recommend water shoes, as it is fairly rocky, but we were able to wade in and swim out carefully, the water was fine! We had planned to fish as well, but time did not allow - shame, since there are clearly many fish in the lake.
With Galway an easy 45 minutes away, and Cong and a number of other small towns and historical sites within 10 to 20 minutes, the house is well situated for day trips.
Tim is very responsive, and came to address some small issues right away, a great host altogether.
Thank you, Tim, for welcoming us into your home, and paving the way to a great holiday!
