Sandhill is our family holiday home and is much used by us and it is very personally furnished with oil paintings etc. We want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do. There are plenty of stores which guests are welcome to use, but we do ask that they are replaced if finished, so that life is simple for the next inhabitants. Pets are welcome by arrangement but we do prefer no smoking in the house itself. We do not have a bin collection, so we ask guests to take all their refuse to the dump near Newport. If this is not possible please make arrangements direct with Kevin, the caretaker, who may be able to remove it at a charge of €10 per bag, which should be paid to him. If refuse is left without payment to Kevin, we will charge €10 per bag against the damage deposit.

The scenery and views are indeed superb but that's where the positives end unfortunately. There were mice in the house the evening we arrived and throughout the stay (we couldn't arrange alternative accommodation so we tried to 'grin and bear' it) but in the end the situation became such that we left a day early. The house was in a poor state: not well cleaned, dirty carpet, loose floorboards and various snags that we probably would have overlooked if weren't for the mice and the level of cleanliness. Overall we were extremely disappointed with the stay and could not recommend it in any way.

Thank you Johnny for our wonderful stay in Mayo and for all the really useful local information. Kevin and Mary were so helpful and lovely and how handy to have them close by. They had so many interesting stories to tell. Mayo is the most stunning county. We went to Achill Island and swam in the sea at Keel where the sand is white; we also had a great seafood supper there at the Chalet restaurant. We saw dolphins at Malranny, ate the most delicious home baked scones and bread at Yvonne's Cottage, met oyster farmers whilst out foraging for muscles, went to a Gaelic football match at Castlebar and visited Westport House with all its adventure activities. We were overwhelmed with the beautiful scenery all around - the view from the house alone is spectacular. The house itself was warm with a modern open plan kitchen - it ticked every box for us. Ireland and its people are truly amazing - we will be coming back.
