We had a really wonderful time in the Old School House, Carrickfinn this Summer. The house is very well maintained and presented with real attention to detail. My young son absolutely loved helping with the turf fires which really brought the house alive in the evenings.
Cathal and Elma were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and clearly put a good deal of effort into guests enjoying the experience.
The house is located in a really beautiful part of the Rosses, with the best beach that I have ever come across anywhere within easy walking distance. It was just perfect for walks along the beach and swimming. The water is crystal clear and the beach very safe and uncrowded with wonderful dunes. It was a great hit with the kids.
The blackberries were out early this year which was a real bonus with us picking them along the quiet road to the house and making lovely crumbles.
We really thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Old Schoolhouse and have been very happy to recommend it to friends.
We will be back.
A nice cottage in a quiet spot and the beaches were great for the kids. Plenty of good walking/running around the cottage and not far to drive to shops and pubs. Good scones in the airport cafe!
The owners were very helpful and gave us loads of suggestions. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
The old school house offers a home away from home experience . The hosts are very welcoming and knowledgable .The location close to beach is perfect with a new view around every corner on road into property . The house is equipped with everything needed . Beds are very comfortable and with two showers and a bath there is no queing required. We have enjoyed a few holidays here and will be back . A brilliant bonus this year was the addition of wi-fi essential when travelling with teenagers .
If you love this area the house is perfect come rain or shine.
We had a great stay in the Old School House Carrickfin just after Easter. The house has 3 good bedrooms, 2 ensuite. The living room with an open fire was very homely
There was also a study space upstairs and a well equipped kitchen. Just perfect for our easter break
The surrounding area has beautiful walks
We thoroughly enjoyed everything
