Of the many opportunities we availed ourselves of on our tour with the ICC in September, our visit to Cnoc Suain was the highlight. We were educated, enlightened and moved by the deep love of land and country that is the motivation for this unique educational/environmental effort.
We made this cozy cottage our home for 3-1/2 days and enjoyed every minute! We were choosing between staying in a castle (basically a hotel stay) or staying here for a more cultural experience. We chose well and fell in love as soon as we entered the half-door! Charlie met us with a warm, friendly welcome even though we arrived later than arranged. We loved our cozy cottage, which has been modernized with a full working kitchen and bathroom with shower. The whole place was immaculate and full of charm! The breakfast left by Dearbhaill was delicious! They have thought of every comfort--even logs for the fire, which we happily used on a rainy night! The bed is very comfortable. Excellent water pressure and we always had plenty of hot water. We didn't miss TV or wifi one bit. This was a fantastic retreat from the chaos of life, while enjoying a look into the past. The location is great...close to Spiddal town and easy drive out to the ferry to Aran Islands. Charlie suggested we stop for a meal in Oughterard at Powers Thatch Pub--We did and had the best lunch! Thank you, Charlie and Dearbhaill, for your vision and for sharing your magical place with us. We will return :)…
We visited as a group which is the only way to visit if not staying at the cottage. It was wonderful. The husband and wife are passionate about teaching the history of the community. We enjoyed it. The surrounding scenery is amazing.
Cnoc Suain est fléché depuis le feu rouge au centre de Moycullen, et leur site internet donne bigrement envie d'y aller. Mais une fois sur place, on tombe sur une barrière fermée et un panneau "private". En semaine au mois d’août en milieu d'après midi, ce n'est pas ce que j'appelle de l'accueil et du partage de culture et tradition gaélique.
We visited Cnoc Suain as part of a group tour. This site offers unique insight to Irish cultural history and traditions - a very interesting cultural immersion. I would definitely recommend this for adults, and perhaps mature and inquisitive teens - probably not a good idea for families with kids younger than 12-ish years old.
