“Amazing Christmas and New Year in Knocknagrough House”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Beautiful spacious house packed full of everything you need for a great holiday. We had a fortnight from 20th December 2014 and loved every minute in this lovely house and great town.
Even when we had all the family and friends visit there was plenty of space for all to enjoy the festivities. The bedrooms are a treat with 5 star luxury bedding adding that extra special feel to this gorgeous well kept house.

Ballyvaughan has loads of great pubs, restaurants and the locals are very friendly. The town has an excellent tourist information centre and shop (open all year) and a well stocked Spar shop with deli. The house is a short walk from everything and a short drive to Bishops Quarter beach for great walks in the sand dunes.

The garden is well kept and landscaped with benches for picnic (not used in December but would be lovely for BBQ in Summer months.) The Italian restaurant is great, as are Logues Lodge and Monks Bar for food.

Rita is an excellent host and we loved all her extra nice touches for Christmas. We will be returning to Ballyvaughan again.

“Just BRILLIANT”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This delightful house was our holiday home earlier this year - and we cannot speak highly enough of the hostess, the comfortable and well equipped property, set within easy walking distance of the shops and pubs. Would definitely consider for another Ballyvaughan holiday.

“Absolutely AMAZING holiday home, satisfaction guaranteed!”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I've stayed in Knocknagrough twice and really can't recommend this gorgeous holiday home enough! The location is perfect, just 5 minutes walking distance to the shops and pubs of Ballyvaughan, while the house itself is very spacious, with all the mod-cons and facilities you would ever need. The really special thing about this holiday home is the first-class customer service and the beautiful decor: I have honestly never stayed somewhere where the owner has put in some much effort and attention to detail. The perfect place to stay for a trip to the West of Ireland, you will NOT be disappointed!

“Excellent in Everyway”

From the outset Rita the owner was extremely friendly, professional and helpful to deal with. We had a large family booking with young children and a baby. Rita could not have been more helpful. On our arrival we found the house spacious and clean with fresh flowers which smelled beautiful. The house is in an excellent location in the village but removed from the hussel and noise which was important with young kids. There is a large garden with gates to lock so the kids were secure playing outside. We had the best week with beautiful weather and family. Thank you Rita we will return again.

We stayed in Ballyvaughan during the Easter holidays 2012.Our group comprised 4 adults and 4 children.The house was extremely spacious and had a great location within walking distance of the village. Ballvaughan itself has some lovely pubs and a beautiful tearooms which opened at the beginning of the Easter holidays.We found the staff in the tourist office to be very helpful.They gave us details of looped walks in the vicinity.The Burren, Cliffs of Moher,and ferries to the Aran Islands were all easily accessible.We also made a day trip to Galway city.I have no hesitation in recommending Knocknagrough
