    We stayed here the first week of July 2020 when the country had been reopened after the first lockdown. The owner had taken every step necessary to ensure all COVID-19 guidelines were adhered to. The place was immaculate. Hand sanitizer was provided in the hall and extra cleaning products were provided in the kitchen. I think possibly the previous reviewers describe the place better than I can - it is everything they say and more. And yes, I too am reluctant to share the secret Suffice to say: The host Mary Rose was a lady and could not do enough for us. We were greeted with a warm “socially distanced” welcome, flowers in the hall, lit candles, classical music and a bottle of red wine. Interior finished to an extremely high standard. The pictures do not do it justice, it is much more spacious and luxurious than it appears. Lake was a joy and an adventure. Felt like a trip back to another world. Have booked return visit already for next year, fingers crossed will be able to go. Highly highly recommend.

The property

The Humble Daisy is a beautiful thatched cottage set adjacent to the owner’s home, at the end of a rural lane, just a short stroll from the shores of Lough Derg, and six miles from Woodford in County Galway.

Offering charming and homely accommodation completed to a very good stand, this quaint, detached Woodford cottage has traditional features including a neat thatched roof, visible stone walls, and an original hall and parlour dating from the18th century.

There is a bright and airy atmosphere in the contemporary-styled kitchen, which has a dining area and patio doors that open onto the private rear patio, a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet cup of tea to refresh you on the morning of a Galway adventure.

The parlour at this Woodford cottage is complete with a warming open fire and exposed walls, and provides an atmospheric place to unwind at the end of your busy day.

Why not settle upstairs in the mezzanine sitting area and dive into in a good book, or let your gaze wander to the glorious, long-distant views?

The ground floor offers two en-suite double bedrooms, with one proudly home to the owner’s grandmother’s piano, perfect for musically-minded guests.

Just two minute’s stroll from this Woodford cottage, guests can glide down the lake on the owner’s rowing boat for a lazy afternoon spent fishing or simply watching the world pass by.

Walking and cycling routes are available close by, and within driving distance guests will find Galway’s many golf courses, horse riding centres and watersports facilities.

Spend the day in Galway City to discover Ireland’s wonderful west, a hub of culture home to many bars and restaurants and colourful festivals throughout the year.

This wonderful Woodford cottage sits in a delightful location, and offers an ideal retreat.
