“Fabulous Break Away”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We went to Pontoon house as a family of 8, 6 adults and 2 children as a present for our dad's 60th Birthday. The house catered for all our needs, had everything there for the children, beds, highchair etc. The house itself and where it's situated was fantastic. We know the area very well from being brought there as children on holidays. It is so central to Castlebar, Ballina,Westport etc. Loads to do. We will definitely be back. Definitely a great place for kids, the grounds outside were so secure and Julie the donkey (who was renamed by my nephew Fodey) brought many a laugh to us. Highly recommended.

“Pontoon House is in an excellent location, surrounded by rugged beauty and is a tranquil spot for a family holiday.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is one of favourite holiday homes which we have rented both at Easter and in the summer over a number of years. The owners are very attentive and in close communication to resolve any queries and the house is well equipped and perfect for family get togethers. Its set in such a beautiful location with views of hills and lakes from every window and is convenient for many local attractions (surfing at Keel beach on Achill Island, the holy mountain Croag Patrick, and cycling the Greenway to name a few), and if it rains visit the Museum of country life just down the road or go to the Mayo Movie world a short drive away in Castlebar which also has plenty of good bars and restaurants.
