Christmas Reviews


Christmas comes early for this family at Riverside Paradise Esker, Galway


We had the pleasure of staying at Riverside Paradise from Friday 27th November to Sunday 29th. From my first contact with Peter Downey he made the experience so easy, great communicator and couldn’t, do enough for us. Three generations have a super time together. Nothing was too much for Peter to arrange, Peter has the Christmas decorations in place and made the house very festive. Christmas tree and lights and trimmings. Adam our personal chef cooked us a wonderful Christmas dinner, yes I know it was still November but Peter has arranged for Santa to visit us before Santa got too busy.

It was a wonderful evening and great excitement for the children. The house has everything you would need for a home away from home, even down to toilet rolls and fresh towels. (Little things matter). The view from the house is amazing from all the rooms, cosy log fire, snooker table, toy room fully equipped for all ages. The house was spotless and very comfortable. Due to the weather that weekend we didn’t venture very far but we had lunch in the village on Friday and food was very good and a good variety on the menu. The supervalu shop has everything you need if you forget any items. We intend to book again for a longer period and look forward to the many places of interest within driving distance. Thanks again Peter lovely memories to treasure and your kind gift to start our celebrations
