Loved our stay at Cathy's cottage. She was a lovely host and the home had everything we could have possibly needed during our stay. It was nice to be able to do laundry! The beds were VERY comfortable and clean!

"Sweet Perfection" Cottage Cathy has provided a completely renovated charming cottage. Very comfortable and very clean. She has stocked the place with everything you might need before you ask. Cathy lives next door and is readily available. The decor is a lovely combination of Martha Stewart and a dash of Mary Engelbreit. Close-in to Galway City. Highly, highly recommend.

Cathy is one of the best hosts in any air b&b we have stayed in to date. Her cottage is filled with loving and thoughtful touches. She not only has a lovely cottage, but she took the time to leave breakfast makings for the next couple of days. She was available when needed (although we never had a need). I would HIGHLY recommend this place for anyone. There is room for 4 with the 2 private bedrooms and baths.

Cathy was so helpful and responsive throughout. A cute little cottage located in farm surroundings, proved to be comfortable and had everything you need. Gorgeous comfy beds!! Our group, including two teenagers, even survived without a TV!! Good location for getting to Galway and all the main roads are close, although you wouldn't know as its very quiet. Lovely.

Immediately obvious that Cathy takes great pride in her Cottage. The cleanliness, styling and attention to detail leads to the highest level of customer service. I highly recommend this property. The cottage, sits at the front end of a small working farm which creates even more charm. It's a very quick shot into Galway by car/taxi. A great Airbnb experience.

Cathy's place is a true gem. When it comes to comfort, it easily beats a five star hotel. At the same time, there is so much love to details in little things. I just loved the mugs, the towels, the linen... everything has been arranged to make her guests feel comfy. Cathy even filled the fridge with breakfast! She is a wonderful host and I highly recommend a visit to her place.

Cathy was warm and welcoming. She made us feel right at home and made great recommendations for places to eat and things to see. The cottage is wonderful, spotlessly clean, luxurious linens and towels, and a refrigerator and pantry stocked with our first breakfast.
