“Is Even Better Than It Looks in the Photographs! It was a pleasure to stay 2 weeks in this beautiful, very tastefully furnished apartment. A bit of city sophistication in the West of Ireland! Fantastic. The living room was bigger than expected and the original artwork and photography on the walls were a treat to look at. The courtyard is beautiful also, especially when lit up in the evenings. To tell the truth we didn’t feel like we were staying in a holiday rental but in someone’s home. Everything was done with such care. Hilary and Felix were extremely helpful – particularly with one issue we needed help with and answered all our queries and any requests. The bed was very comfortable, as was the sofa. During our first week the weather was rather cold but the heating was kept on for us all the time so we were lovely and toasty and warm. There are plenty of pots and pans and cooking utensils in the kitchenette and a nice private shaded decking area. The free Wifi was very useful for looking up local attractions. The apartment was just a 5 minute walk from Bertra Strand and the house itself is at the foot of Croagh Patrick. I would highly recommend this apartment. For our outings we went to Old Head Beach (which is sheltered and very pretty). I would recommend Killary Cruises for a 90 minute cruise down Ireland’s only fjord and a trip to Cong and Ashford Castle. The scenery around this area is just spectacular. I would definitely stay again and we thought it was excellent value for money.” Christine, Belfast, UK
“We had an amazing trip to County Mayo and thanks to Bertra Strand apartments it was so easy and comfortable. The apartment was compact and practical. When we arrived it was cosy and warm after a long journey. We were able to get a good nights sleep comfortably for our hike up Croagh Patrick the next day which was breath taking!!!” Jackie, Leeds, UK
“A thrilling location just up the lane from breathtaking Bertra Strand and a few minutes from two great pubs and the trailhead for Croagh Patrick. These lovely private apartments share courtyard and are artfully furnished with Hilary and Felix’s sharp eye for style and natural beauty. Comfy, quiet and private, with a kitchen and a good shower (with plentiful hot water) WiFi and parking. And the best part? I couldn’t have asked for a warmer welcome. 🙂 I hope to return with family and friends in tow. If I can get in… because they won’t be a secret for long!” Amy K., Canmore, Canada
“Hilary met us after our long drive and immediately made us feel very welcome. It was fairly dark by then so we didn’t see the place until the next morning – but what a place, just beautiful. The apartment was great – cosy, good facilities, internet connection was also very good! By way of a recommendation – what can I say other than we are thinking of going back to this exact spot in the future – if Hilary will have us! ” Stephen M., GB
