Nothing is too much trouble and if you need a hand with your itinerary plans then we are happy to help you. We look forward to welcoming you.

How to get here

Thanks for your booking - Caroline at the Thatched cottage BnB here to confirm your reservation.

A top tip to locate the BNB is to download the app WAZE and input the Eircode H91DK8W and it will bring you straight to the b n b, otherwise follow the below directions.

If you have not done so pls confirm your check in time, noting check is from 3.30-10pm unless an earlier time as been previously agreed.


Travelling from Galway the easiest way and the way that I strongly suggest you follow to the b n b is to travel north on N83 to Claregalway. DO NOT TRAVEL ON THE MOTORWAY M17 as we are off the old road. From Claregalway continue north on to Lydons Knockdoe (do not turn left nor right off this road (GPS will attempt to turn u off) and you will reach Lydons Pub Knockdoe ~ 5km). From Knockdoe continue straight on N83 for 2km further taking the first left by CURRANDRUM national school, the house is just under 2km on the right.

Review Score: 1/10

This place had no rating by B&B Ireland and there is a reason for this. Very unprofessionally run. Previous review commented about host arguing and we were met with this on check in (wife hollering at husband to close doors and him hollering back). The day before we checked in we received an email saying she couldn't take any guests until 7:30 pm even though stated check in starts at 3:30 pm. Rooms have no locks on the doors. On a positive note bed was very comfortable. The cooking and cleanliness of kitchen could use some improvement. I had am omelet on our first morning and there was lots of liquid in my plate. Definitely would not stay there again. We stayed at four B&B's while in Ireland and this one was far below the level of the others.

Host's Reply:
Thank you for your review Mike and Sue. I was surprised to read your review regarding your stay with us. I apologise for the late check in which was due to a family commitment, but I am glad you enjoyed the dinner recommendation which we gave you. I am happy you found the beds very comfortable, and if you had mentioned your dissatisfaction with the breakfast you received, I could certainly have provided you with an alternative. As you will see from our reviews from previous guests we are often complimented for our delicious breakfasts with guests rating them as a good as 5 star hotel . I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Ireland. Caroline.
