We booked this cottage at the very last minute having been let down by a different agency. Tina, the owner, met us at the property having lit a welcoming fire. The property was light and spacious and spotlessly clean. Although there were only two of us, beds in all three bedrooms were made up and we had our choice. There were heaps of clean towels of every size in the bathroom and the owners are just a phone call away in the unlikely event of any problems. The property is set well back from the road and there is a great view of a hill, castle and lake from the lounge. The bedrooms are at t...more
beautiful apartment set in such a fantastic town. the location was excellent for every aspect of my weekend away. such lovley people about and great music provided at night time. the apartment was everything i could have asked for for my mini break away.
This is all you want when you rent a house for a large group one weekend. comfort, excellent attention from the owners, and a house super well prepared.
This home is in a fantastic location with an amazing view of the fjiord and harbour. It has ample room for several people. The bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen is large and the dining area has seating for at least six. It is wheelchair accessible also. It is a short drive to pubs and the hotel if you care for an evening out. Westport and Clifton are not far away.
This was a beautiful home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. The bedrooms were a good size with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. One thing to mention is that there are no curtains in any of the windows which is wonderful in the living areas. However although you are not overlooked the bedrooms don't have curtains either so if you like a dark room and don't want to be wakened when the sun rises this could be an issue. The owners did have eye masks for use. The living areas are amazing with the most wonderful views and very comfortable sofas to lounge in....more
Eddie & Lorraine were perfect hosts, welcoming us, looking after our every need and even presenting us with home made scones on our departure. The house is amazing, ultra modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. We loved the location, we were able to explore Connemara, a beautiful area we intend to return to. Also convenient for Galway and the Burren.
Beautiful location, great Cottage, kind owners direcly next door. All the things you must see in Conemara are max 45 - 50 minutes drive away. A really stunning place! Roundstone offers all you need, from petrol, little grocery store to pubs. Don't miss oysters and Guinnes at O'Dowd's.
The O'Malley's cottage is magical. The most beautiful possible setting imaginable, overlooking the Cleggan harbor, and surrounded by heathered fields, this is a clean, comfortable, and luxurious house. Our caretaker Mary was so helpful. Our group of five adults used the cottage as a departure point for hiking and biking and it was great to return to such a pleasant and warm home at the end of the day. Cleggan is a sweet town with great restaurants and pubs; for fresh fish, seek out the local fisherman for same day catch (ask at the grocery store). Thank you for a great stay!
We ( 1 couple 1 single) stayed in this delightful cottage for 9 days at the beginning of September 2016. It is as described on the website and in the pictures, fully equipped, 3 en-suite bedrooms, eat-in kitchen, homely, cosy, and with beautiful sea views. Josephine, the owner, had placed fresh flowers and a bottle of wine to greet us on our arrival, and was extremely helpful. The cottage is on the famous Sky Road and a few minutes walk brings you to some magnificent views. In the other direction, the buzzing little town of Clifden, with its impressive collection of shops, restaurants and pu...more
Amazing place to stay for a quite getaway in the wilds on Connemara. Beautiful scenery and landscapes. The house itself is neat and tidy, WiFi is pretty good. For us the only thing we would change is poor a bigger bed in the main bedroom and get a stronger shower.
Very spacious beautifully presented cottage located at the end of a country road in Connemara. The views were breathtaking. Large dining/conservatory room with windows and doors letting in lots of light and views across the fields to the wild Atlantic Ocean. Close to lots of activities, walking, visiting historic sights and day trips by ferry to the beautiful islands of Clare and Inishturk. Wonderful owners keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
A great apt in superb location. We loved it, and our kids really enjoyed it too. We spent a month in Ireland and Clifden was our highlight! The place was really clean and spacious and v easy check in and check out. Ideal for a family of 5.
We had a very nice stay. The house was very nice and confortable, the owner woman was very friendly. The next time we will be more time. Thank you very much
Eamon , owner , settled us into the house at 5pm after our long day travelling. Rooms, bathrooms and kitchens clean and tidy. Wood burner excellent source of heat.Dishwasher in kitchen so remember to bring dishwasher tablets. I had a good internet connection on phone but my fellow travellers didn't. Lots of walks and other activities to do nearby. We often watched the light changing on the hills, the sheep and Connemara ponies and enjoyed the hottest days we have ever had in Ireland. Eamon and his family are very helpful.
We stayed in the cottage for one week and we enjoyed every minute. Nice views on the ocean and the Connemara- mountains. The kitchen is fully equiped, the living room is comfortable and beautiful. The bathrooms are very modern. We shurely would come back again.
We are a motorcycle group 15 in total.We spent a fantastic week at this house.Very comfortable,clean and well placed.The owners were not in site,but very easy to contact in the local pub.Keoghs.....The pub ws amazing with fantastic food...the local shop had everything you could want..I would have no problem recommending this house to anyone...stunning !
The house was rented for a group of visiting friends and it really exceeded my expectations. The location is unbelieveable and the size and condition of the house really more than we were expecting. The online pictures don't do it justice, everything was just fantastic.
We stayed at Gannough's for 3 nights and would love to stay again. We loved how quiet it was, how we could sit looking out of the window staring at the beautiful coastline for hours. The house is clearly well-loved and cared for, we enjoyed the personal feel it had. The kitchen had all the utensils you needed, gas cooker and was clean. The bathrooms are simple but do the job well. Bed linen was clean and good quality. We would definitely recommend this to others and hope to come again.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is fantastic, right across the rd from the beach and a stone's throw from Ballyconneelly and other amazing beaches. Mary was really helpful and welcoming and even had the fire lit for us on arrival! The ESB rate was reasonable and the house had everything we needed for a family holiday. Would recommend
Very clean and modern. Excellent base for us. Like home from home. Will definitely return. The village is amazing and the views of the killery are amazing.
The lady looking after this property was great, looked after all our needs, She had the house spotless clean, Everything we needed for the three nights was in the house. Two minuets drive into Clifden. Shop and a Pub on site, Loads of green area safe for children and dogs to run and play, We will be coming back for a longer stay next time,
Maison très agréable et confortable...belles vues! Supers vacances....nous avons pas vu le propriétaire il est venu vérifier le chauffage qui sentait un peu
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement bien équipé,spacieux et confortable. Il est idéalement situé à quelques mètres seulement du cœur de Roundstone et du O'Dowds pub. Les fenêtres donnent sur le port et une deuxième entrée offre un accès à un parking situé derrière l'immeuble. La literie est confortable.
Nice clean cottage, at first day we had some problem sto find it, but then it was great. Superb equipped house, beautiful location in the middle of a astonishing valley with a great Lake, ideal for trips around to Connemara
We enjoyed our weeks stay in a perfect location in Clifden as the house is within walking distance to everything. Unfortunatly we did have issues from day 1 with fumes from the oil heater...the management company and caretaker were immediate in their responsive and did compensate us for the discomfort but were unable to fix the problem. Suggest the oil burner should be located outside the house . The only other issue was the lack of blinds in the upstairs bedrooms which we could not understand as light shining in from early morning..we had to put black plastic bags over the windows. This is ...more
We, a family of 5 (kids age 16, 20, 22), had a wonderful week at this cottage. It's probably the most beautiful place in Connemara. The view is fantastic and the architecture of the house as well. From the house we even saw wonderful rainbows. Communicating with the owner was really easy and nice. A lot of brochures were provided. Three sandy beaches are close by. We found everything we needed, a true home away from home. The "kids" were really happy about the trampoline.
Lovely place to stay , second year in a row staying there , Lorna is lovely ,might see you again next year
We stayed in Carna just a two nights as we had to leave earlier to drive to airport The place was clean and spacious quiet too! I loved listening to the wind Plenty of parking Mary and her family are lovely hosts I wish we could had stayed longer so I could had visited the area more!
The week we spent in this cottage on Inishnee was the most peaceful ever. It really had everything going for it. Not too close and not too far from Roundstone, which is a lovely picturesque village. The island itself has ample walking and views. The fact that the Galway->Cliften bus will stop at the causeway for the island is great too. After only three days of our one week holiday my wife stated, "next year, we'll come back and stay two weeks".
Only issue we had was the very late check in - 4pm. Also, would be nice to have had a few more basics, salt, pepper etc. Other than that the place was fabulous.
Stayed for 4 nights in October Very comfortable, well thought out living space. Lovely wee terrace and excellent views Well situated within the village and the village itself being well placed in Connemara for nearby and further afield activities. Worth climbing the hill behind and cycling to clifden. allthingsconnemara were very good on information and ticket booking, so we hired bikes there. Would also mention Frank Acton Garage in Clifden. Were brilliant when we had brake trouble. They fixed the brakes and helped us ensure it did not spoil the holiday Pubs and restaurants in Roundsto...more
We spent a splendid week in this lovely cottage, very cosy and nicely decorated. It is really well situated to visit this incredible part of Ireland. The view from the house is wonderfull. + Thanks to Sheila for her very warm welcome.
We have appreciated all many our stay. The sea view, small fishing port, lobsters and products of the sea, the beauty of the landscape, peaceful life, and the small dogs scroungers, who made the beautiful .. and of course inescapable sheeps in the middle of the peat and the flowery roads .. We like Conemara .. and Ireland generally It has been 2 years since we go there .
Notre séjour dans ce charmant cottage était parfait. Tranquillité, confort, et très bien situé, à mi-chemin entre Galway et Cliffden. La propriétaire nous a réservé un très bon accueil.
The most beautiful spot imaginable! A great house with very friendly communications and support. We really hope to be able to stay here again one day. No wi-fi but that didn't matter one bit. Surrounded by pristine beaches and majestic mountains we had a wonderful week!
The house is situated in the centre of Clifden. When we arrived the house was not very clean. Stains on the carpet. The couch was dirty. Windows dirty. There were even little black worms in one of the bedrooms! The frying pans were damaged!
The cottage was clean and tidy with all the facilities we needed. John the host checked in to have a friendly chat and ensure we had all we needed. He then left us alone to make the most of our time in this special place. It is in a beautiful quiet setting beside the Killary fiord and well removed from other buildings. It's location enabled us to explore the west coast of Ireland from Galway to Westport with Clifton and the Connemara National Park only a short drive away. Thank you Ireland and thank you John.
we have stayed here many times before,to attend the Connemara pony festival.Ideal location for us and we have made many friends in the area.
Excellent location. Property very clean and comfortable. Disappointed that walls very thin and could clearly hear the neighbors next door. No wifi.
As always an excellent holiday, in spite of dreadful weather. The new furniture in the lounge was an improvement. The cooker is a little past its best. Our hosts were as helpful as ever.
A comfortable stay in an unforgettable location. Lough Fee is as remote as it gets in Connemara and provides easy access to both the Twelve Bens and Maumturks mountains. Glassilaun is a very short drive away - a very atmospheric beach!
1. the immersion switch setting for Bath does not work... so to get hot water you have to set it to Sink. 2. the frying pans are in very poor state and, I would say, probably represent a health risk. 3. the steps leading to the property are a bit dangerous when it's raining. 4. the person who showed me the place (Siobhan) would not win any prizes for customer service
Cottage was in good shape, and Bridget the caretaker was extremely helpful. There was an issue with the water not being reliably available between 11-3 during the day, but apparently this was a local issue (due to tourist influx in August) and not specific to the house. Ballyconneely is a great part of Connemara, wild with beautiful beaches and bog.
Really spacious and luxury cottage with excellent privacy and views. Recommended for people looking for rest and being away from all the noises of modern life.
I would give it 10 form 10 and strongly recommend! House is massive, warm, clean you get there everything you need in there and the owner is great guy! SUPERB place
it's a very nice house with a very beautiful view on the sea from the bedroom and the livingroom. Very quiet.Super
The house is in a very good location, however there could be a lot attention to detail and comfort. Things such a towel rails, somewhere to hang coats, pictures / soft furnishings were missing and made the place lack any homely or loving feeling.
This house is in a lovely peaceful and relaxing location on Inishnee island a few miles from Roundstone. There is a loop walk around the island with very nice views. It is well located for touring the Connemara area and beauty spots, many scenic driving routes in the area. There are 2 fabulous beaches about 5 miles away, Gurteen & Dog's Bay, white sand and crystal clear water. Lovely for swimming. The house is comfortable, the kitchen in particular was very well equipped. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean however the rest of the house was dusty and a bit grubby, could do with a good cleanin...more
