A stay in the Humble daisy and the Old village barn is such an enjoyable experience from start to finish. The attention to detail was out of this world!! Mary Rose the host is such a wonderful lady that leaves no stone unturned. The accommodation is extremely clean and beautifully decorated. My family had a amazing stay.

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.

I've read all the reviews from previous vacationers who have stayed at The Humble Daisy.....They all have had a wonderful time and enjoyed the fantastic hospitality shown by Mary Rose( the owner)...The fire lit and a bottle of red on arrival....Rare !! The spacious warm cosy so well equipped cottage..understated by the advertised description..also very rare.

if you've read " Swallows and Amazons " then this is your place,the tranquil silence and a slow walk down the lane you arrive on the edge of Lake Derg, meet the friendly donkeys,and maybe take the boat out for a spin which is moored up in it's own boat shed in the same field as the donkeys,each step down the lane takes you back in time.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay,Beau the Rottie loved his time there,we were lucky with the weather but hey,if not, pop some logs on the fire and read a good book.

Finally,I was tempted not to want to tell anyone about this piece of heaven..shear selfishness on my part but I would be doing Mary Rose a complete injustice, so, if you like empty roads ,wonderful friendly people,views to die for,then book this place before you die,take a telescope for the dark night sky and an easel and paints if you are that way inclined.

Thank You Mary Rose,you will see us again.

My husband and I stayed at The Humble Daisy for 7 nights. The warm welcome we received from Mary Rose was lovely and friendly. Herfamily too were very helpful went out of their way to help and give advise. The cottage is truly beautiful. Warm and cosy. The fire was lit for us on our arrival with a bottle of wine and two glasses waiting to be opened. The cottage is extremely well equipped with everything you would need. The boat was a wonderful bonus and we took it out onto the Lough several times during our stay. I would highly recommend a stay at this little hidden gem.

From the moment of arrival you know your somewhere special .A scented candle and wild flowers greet you at the door and as you are drawn to the smell of the log fire in the sitting room there is a lovely bottle of wine and glasses awaiting you, you know your on holidays.

The house itself is spotlessly clean and has everything you would need . A lovely courtyard off the kitchen with garden furniture is ideal for the morning cuppa or relaxation in the evenings.

Just a short stroll down the lane to the lake you will find the boat but as storm Ali was on her way it was too choppy to venture out.

Mary Rose couldn't have been more helpful with local information on places to see and where to eat but the house has plenty of leaflets on this.

I would highly recommend this beautiful house, you will not be disappointed.

The Humble Daisy is truly a wonderful Irish getaway from it all cottage. Don't be fooled by the outside size, it is quite large inside. Our party was at max capacity and not once did we feel tight in the space. There are 3 full bathrooms as well. The house is definitely in the country, so if you are from the States, like us, I hope you are truly wanting to get away from it all because they don't have a million shopping centers in Ireland like we do here. We loved everything about this house. We were lucky to stay there during the heat wave so we had beautiful days for the entire trip. We took out the boat, did some fishing (no luck) and some swimming. The house is about a little over an hour away from Galway City. We were able to visit many sites during the day because it didn't get dark until 11 pm. The cottage owner and neighbors were VERY friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this house!

If you are looking for a quite relaxing break this is ideal, the cottage is stunning and tastefully decorated to a very high standard with everything you need. We went horse riding in Slieve Aughty which was great fun and had a lovely meal in Woodford. Not ideal for kids especially in the winter and any more than 3 days would have been a struggle with them however i would have stayed a week or more ! Mary Rose and her family were extremely helpful and welcoming and a pleasure to deal with and many thanks for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage !

For anyone looking for a REAL away-from-it-all holiday this has got to be the best I have yet encountered. If you like open log fires, the odd bottle of wine and stunning lakes, forests and great Irish food in nearby towns and rural villages - well this has to go on your list. The cottage has literally everything you need and all best quality. There was a bottle of heady wine and a log fire to welcome us - all we had to add was our choice of food for the week and a bit more wine to go with the atmosphere. My job takes me all over the world and so I don't re

Really loved our stay at The Humble Daisy! Very comfortable and beautiful cottage, much larger than expected with beautiful gardens and with the use of the owners fields made the stay with our two springer spaniels perfect! Although no internet connection or wifi, this was actually a bonus as it made for a much more relaxing holiday. Mary Rose was fantastic and extremely helpful.

Wonderful house, wonderful scenery, very relaxing brilliant location for walking holiday. My two Cocker Spaniels had a great time. Beds are very comfortable with high standard through out the house it felt like being at home very cosy and comfy excellent place for fishing or romantic getaway. Also excellent place for photography or painting being able to use the owners land for walking the dogs and having access to areas off Lough Derg
