This holiday home must rank among the best in Connemara. One counterargument: we wanted to stay longer but couldn't :-)
John is a very welcoming owner and his home is beautiful and warm. The house is well equipped and the views from the sunroom are gorgeous. There is plenty of room for a large family and is close to the quaint village of Spiddal. They have great pubs and a nice beach. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to rent a home. Thank you again to John for allowing my family to stay in his home so we could focus on having a great vacation.
This is a beautifully appointed apartment in excellent location right in centre of Clifden. The apartment is modern, bright, spacious and has all the facilities that one needs for a comfortable stay. It has been newly and very tastefully decorated with a subtle maritime theme. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in rebooking. The staff at Connemara Lettings were also excellent and very helpful.
Our family of 7 enjoyed our stay at Murlach Cottage. The Cottage is clean, very roomy and well set up for a family. The views from the side of the house are beautiful. The cottage is well supplied with paper goods, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, etc. There were even some staples (cookies, OJ, milk, etc) available. It is a very short walk down to Keogh's Restaurant, a small grocery store, and a church. It's a short drive to beaches, a golf course, and Clifden. We were quite comfortable and the caretaker was very helpful and flexible. We would recommend this cottage to friends and fami...more
We booked this accommodation because of the connemarathon en stayed here with two young children. After a long nightly journey from Dublin, the arrival was warm with home-made bread, wine and a filled refridgerator. The location was perfect in the middle of the centre. One, minor, detail could be the heating/cooling systems on the roof which might prevent you from opening the window during the night), however we did not find it very disturbing.
Fabulous property in an excellent location in the heart of Clifden. Travelling with a baby, we had everything we needed in the property, it was spacious, clean and with all the amenities. Also had a very warm welcome from Pearl who was so kind to leave us some basic treats to start us off like homemade bread, butter milk and water which was greatly appreciated after our long journey. Highly recommend this property.
Had a brilliant holiday here. Beautiful house with lots of space - and a great view of the sea. So close to Dog’s Bay and Gurteen Beaches, which are outstanding!
I rented this house to share with a couple of ladies . We had a mini yoga retreat. This house will leave you speechless. Beyond gorgeous. Million dollar views. Bed linen spotless and crisp. I have rented many houses. This one gets the 100 percent pass. Not a speck of dust under the beds. We loved it . Samantha and Yvonne the sgen6s are a pleasure to deal with. Great advice and information. We most certainly will be back to once upon a tide. Yvonne thank you for recommending a home away from home. It was a great weekend. Caroline Holmes
Peter and Maire had a lovely stay at Tigh Tom Ban again! Provided us with all the comforts that we needed for a relaxing week. The weather was beautiful so plenty time for walking and exploring the beautiful surroundings in this area. Time to sit out to enjoy the sunshine at the cottage with family and friends. Thanks to Brid and Hugh who welcomed us, Brid provided us with delicious scones! We shall be back!
A well furnished apartment with fabulous sea views very helpful and friendly owners who went the extra mile to ensure a memorable holiday in beautiful Connemara.
We really enjoyed our stay, the house is fully equipped with everything you could need including baby equipment. Beautiful setting very close to the beach will definitely book again.
My family and I stayed in the house for a month and it had everything we needed for our extended holiday. The house is spotlessly clean and updated. Location couldn’t be better...just a very short walk to shops, pubs/ restaurants and grocery stores. Everything was easy from booking to check out. Loved our time here!
Family of 8 including grandparents had a wonderful week in Clifden staying in this great house It had everything we could have wished for with plenty of space for all Very near the town but yet private and peaceful
Really nice location for a family break away from the city life. Breathtaking views and the sea is just on your doorstep. The house is in perfect condition and gas absolutely everything you need. The owners are so lovely and helpful. Thank you again for the bred, butter and the strawberry jam as a welcome gift. Well needed after a long drive ;-) we really loved our week away and would definitely recommend this place and location.
Amazing stay in beautiful accommodation. We are a family of 8, 6 adults and two young children 5 & 7. The accommodation was absolutely perfect, something for everyone, games room for the men, games for the girls, beautiful garden for the children with tree house. Living accommodation superb, couldn't fault anything, every last detail been accommodated. Comfort amazing, huge kitchen diner, and huge lounge. The hosts Marie & Joe were so so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for them, and of course 'Lady' the dog was the center of attraction with the girls.
What can i say at such sort notice my family needed accommodation due to the passing of my granny. I called up and got booked into the apartment with no hasstle giving it was also a bank holiday weekend we where looked after. The quality of the apartment was just amazing very spacious and comfortable the garden is great for friends amd family to gather in and the views where amazing with out a shadow of a doubt we will be back to book into that accommodation again
Bríd was a lovely host and we had a beautiful stay. A perfect remote location with great views and all the self catering facilities required. Great wet room!
Delighted with our stay. Geraldine was a lovely host and very kind to our little boy as was her son. He loved seeing the chickens, horse and cow! The location is great as was the view of over to Inisboffin - especially the sunsets! We were very lucky with the weather and took advantage of the nearby beaches. Overall it was a great break and we would thoroughly recommend the house and the peaceful locality! thank you!
Lovely accomodation and location beside aldi and lidl. 10 min walk to the town. Albert and his wife who own the house couldn't be more accomodating. Both lovely people. Thanks for providing the two cots. Most suitable for all the kids, twins, 2 year old, 3 year old, 9 and 12 year old. All in all, a lovely holiday in Clifden for the 1st week of july.
Amazing place to stay with stunning vista, just outside the unspoiled Clifden, a fantastic base from which to best explore the wonderful Conamara.
Fabulous stay location was amazing beautiful white Sand beach and crystal clear water ! Highly recommend amazing stay thank You !
The location of E2 appartmemt was ideal, the appartmemt itself was very clean and all of us staying there said we would go back again. Connemara lettings were very helpful when I was dealing with them and I would use them again if booking in that area.
Superb spacious comfortable clean peaceful house. Great outlook onto lake. Good base to explore Connemara and get away from it all. 19km to Clifden 9km to Roundstone 1km to nearest shop and bar Highly recommended.
Lovely clean house . Breathe taking views from front door. Pity we couldn't catch any fish all week but the walks n pub nearby made up for it.
Everything was lovely - perhaps a bit more decor to warm up the rooms would be nice, but they are brand new, so perhaps it's still early days! The only complaint we had was that we were given the wrong eircode and got lost on the way. Wifi doesn't work either. But that wasn't a problem. Thanks, Faye
Just back from a four night stay in Carraroe. There was 7 of us in the apartment from 9months to 86 years of age and it suited all perfectly. The apartment was brilliant, right in the centre of the town. Modern and comfortable with all the essentials you need for your stay. Couldn’t ask for better and will definitely be back.
We (6 people) had a very good time at this location. The house provides everything we needed for a good time, very clean and a lot of facilities which are better than other places we visited before. The pictures gave us helpful information of the house and we found everything like it shows there. The location is a good mixture of having a peaceful and relaxing stay with a short trip to Spiddal and good connection to Galway. The support during booking and on-site was excellent. All of us were happy to have chosen this place.
The perfect location for a family get together in comfort. Lovely beach within 20m of house, SUP-ing, kite surfing, sandcastle competitions, sundowners on the terrace Heaven!
would recommend this lovely bungalow for families. Owners were helpful and location was good. Tiled floors noisy so would suggest some felt stickers under furniture!
This was a lovely cottage - spacious, bright and perfect for a young family. Great garden too! The only two small negatives were that there was no gate at the entrance so we had to keep a really watchful eye on our 3 young children when they were in the garden in case they went near the busy main road. The kitchen would benefit from having more bowls/delph also as we kept running out of these, being a family of 5! All in all though, a lovely stay!
The Tom Barry Courtyard apartment was clean and very comfortable for our stay. It's right in the heart of Clifden, making it easy to walk to restaurants, pubs, and shopping. I would stay there again next time I visit.
This is a beautiful property. So clean and comfortable ( and gorgeous fresh scones to greet you). The views from the property are breathtaking. Three very spacious bedrooms. In the bathroom a separate bath and shower and hot water all day long. The kitchen is very spacious and has all that you need for any baking requirements. Loads of space outside for the children to play or sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the view. the location is off the main road and you would need a car to stay in this property as it is between Barna and Spiddal. We stayed there for 2 nights with 3 older child...more
The house was perfect, the owner was super. We had a great location, super house, great space, everything we needed was provided with the kitchen well stocked. The house was so clean and lovely with very spacious rooms. We had our goldendoodle with us and she was safe the whole time, she could run around the garden and play and had lots of space in the house. The location was great, just 1.6km from Clifden. We would definitely recommend this house.
We really enjoyed our stay in Sea Studio, the location is great and Kathleen was an excellent host, we spent a week there and hope to return again.
Can't wait to make another family vacation to Clifden. I will hopefully be able to book our trip based on the honey suckle lodge availability. It was a fabulous home away from home for our family. Warm and cozy and lots of space. Made our trip even more pleasant.
Excellent location, beautiful house and very well-appointed A couple of helpful suggestions 1. Could be signposted with name of house at the turn-off 2. The fishermen who use the jetty could be encouraged to keep the area a bit cleaner (eg. get rid of rotten fish and smell and disintegrating plastic fishing nets)
Great location in the center of Clifden in a warm modern apartment. Booking staff very helpful and friendly.
A quiet yet central location and well equipped apartment. Plenty of room for 4 people and we entertained 8 people for dinner with no problem.
Very nice house, well situated in the middle of town. Clifden has really nice pubs and restaurants and the property is right in the centre of the town with own parking spot. Thank you for a nice holiday!
Very beautiful property with lovely space and access to the town. Walkable to Clifden all modern equipment. Lovely and brigth.
So lucky to have found this wonderful, tranquil stone cottage right by the shore. It felt like we had our own private beach. We even got to watch dolphins playing in the bay. What an unbelievable treat. There was plenty of room for us (4 adults and 2 children). Clifden and all it's wonderful restaurants and bars was only a 10 minute drive away. If you like peace and solitude this is the rental for you. We hope to be back.
Luxurious home -- everything was perfect: comfy beds, lovely sheets, finest appliances, and stunning views in every direction. Deeply relaxing weekend: loved hearing the sheep on the hillsides, the sea in the distance. My children were in bliss with the zipline and trampoline, loft, and oodles of games and books. Cosy fireplace and lovely terrace. The kitchen was fully set up for everything we needed. My only request would be a bit more information left out for some of the basics -- like how to operate the TV/DVD (we couldn't), how to operate an Aga stove (I figured it out on youtube), ...more
We a group of 5 adults stayed in this property in Clifden. We found the location excellent. The lounge plus kitchen is open plan.The kitchen was modern,well-equipped.The lounge combined with the kitchen was exceptionally clean,bright,comfortable and spacious.The beds were very comfortable.The Wifi was excellent.We found there was a welcome pack there comprising milk,fruit etc when we arrived.This was greatly appreciated as we had come a long distance and after we had unpacked were able to have a cup of tea.Yvonne and her staff were most efficient,welcoming and approachable and we would like to...more
It was a really nice spacious cottage in a great location. It was perfect for us and we couldn't have asked for much more.
Lovely property, fully stocked kitchen. Would definitely go again. One thing to improve is the mattress in the main bedroom, very uncomfortable. Everything else was fantastic.
Good location Grainne was very helpful House great Good video collection wifi excellent Beds comfortable
The White Thorn House was easy to find on the Bog Road outside Clifden. The accommodation was excellent and it was very good having two ensuite shower rooms ! Martin had kindly left a starting supply of milk,tea and shortbread -- thanks !! We didn't have any children with us but we were all parents and agreed that the upstairs room would have been brilliant to keep children happy. It was fun watching the cows wandering around outside and had the weather been better we would have enjoyed the patio with table and chairs . We would definitely visit the White Thorn House again.
Great house, top condition and helpful landlord. I'd highly recommend this place. Beautiful location
Lovely old house in a fantastic location. Literally one minute walk from centre of village but really quiet. House has everything you need and the most comfortable beds ever! Lovely sunny patio area. Would happily stay there again. So much to see and do around Clifden too.
The cottage is lovely and ideal for a few days in the west for groups of family or friends. The interiors are bright and spacious with gorgeous sea views.
My family (7 in total) stayed for 3 weeks in this charming apartment. Gerry lives nearby and was very attentive to our needs and getting us settled in. It is quite spacious and the outdoor deck was an added bonus for enjoying tea. We parked on the street and had very little problem finding a spot. The grocery shop across the street was very convenient and the entire town is just a very pleasant place. All of the treasures of Connemara are easy to get to in short day trips.
Absolutely fantastic house and location. The house is modern, comfortable, spacious with amazing panoramic views. A small suggestion would be to put black out blinds in the bedrooms and a bigger bed in the master bedroom as there is plenty of space for it. Will definitely be returning to this fabulous house.
Aunty Bo’s is beautifully situated and enjoys stunning views of the nearby lake which and is very close to Clifden . The house is clean and spacious , the decor and furnishing are somewhat tired though but it is well equipped . Only gripe would be that the gas and electric charges are separate tariffs to the rental cost which itself was not cheap .
A great house for families .The garden is an added bonus for the Summer evenings . We will definitely be back.
We had a very relaxing and chilled few days with the family. Plenty of space for everybody and we were blessed with the weather so we could take full advantage of the beautiful garden.
La maison est très bien placée, en retrait de la route avec une vue superbe sur la mer. La mer est accessible à 5mn à pieds. A marée basse il faut absolument traverser et aller sur Omey Island. La maison est très spacieuse et agréable à vivre. Elle est parfaitement équipée même si la vaisselle est un peu juste et la table de salle à manger ne peut accueillir que 6 personnes (compliqué quand on sait que la maison peut accueillir 11 personnes). Les chambres sont très agréables et propres. A 5mn à pied il y a un pub.
First and foremost, Connemara Holiday Lettings did an excellent and very professional job of helping us out with this accomodation. Sadly, it was not up to our expectations, certainly not given the price we paid. Prior to arrival we were asked to contact the caretaker of this house. Strangely, the given phone number was for a former caretaker and no new number was available. Luckily they shared the phone number of the owner. Unfortunately, contacting the owner is nigh on impossible. Upon arrival the key was found under the doormat, a procedure the former caretaker informed us about. Ther...more
Our stay at Leitirshask was extremely enjoyable and relaxing. At 14 Leitirshask, a very well presented house, we had everything we required, were extremely comfortable and it really suited our needs. The children were able to play outside, go cycyling and run with our dogs while on the inside we had 3 spaciuos double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and excellent kitchen/ living amenities. The open conservatory with beautiful views, the extra kids TV room and good wifi, really add to the property. The staff at Connemara Holiday lettings were really helpful at all stages.
Wonderfull accommodation. Lovely sleeping rooms. There is no high chair or travel cot. Lots of stairs.
We are regular visitors to Connemara and have stayed in a number of self-catering properties - Wave Bay Cottage is by far the loveliest we've stayed in to date! Its a beautiful new house with top end furnishings. Its also in the most incredible location - I would recommend anyone staying here to bring binoculars to watch the seals and otters playing in the bay outside. The house was warm with wonderful underfloor heating and the showers excellent. Unfortunately the house hadn't been cleaned before our arrival - the beds appeared to have been changed but one had a large dirty mark on the sh...more
As always our stay in Jimmy Ridge's cottage was wonderful. He is a most gracious and helpful host. The situation of his house suits us beautifully, off the main road, and within walking distance of beaches...….some of us enjoy a swim before breakfast.
Just back from a week at Clifden Glen. Excellent location and very clean house. All mod cons except for washing machine, but we only stayed for 1 week so this was okay. Definitely would stay again.
This is a lovely house, great location. 10 minute walk to cleggan and to a lovely beach. Has all you need for a very comfortable relaxing stay. Highly recommend it.
A warm and friendly welcome to this small cottage in Spiddal. The owner is the most friendly person you can imagine and very helpfull. Allthough the exact location was not exactly where the website showed, it was just a 7 minute walk to the village with good restaurants with live music and some shops. People in Spiddal are very friendly. A good place to be.
First of all I thought the property was named Barrastaile. I hadn’t heard of Killarney Vista. Whatever the name though, the property was amazing. Olive, the lovely host, met us and showed us around her lovely home. She had even left us some little cakes to welcome us. The house itself was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy. The Kitchen was large and fully equipped. The lounge room was furnished with Comfy furniture and an open fire and the best part a fabulous panoramic view. Also the bed was very comfortable and the shower was good. Although we didn’t use it there was a very large bath in anoth...more
House is in a great location with a great view. It is spacious and the outside garage is very useful for storage. It is warm and cosy and the kitchen is a good size. There are a few items in the house that I'd describe as old fashioned.
To make a cup of tea after a long drive would have been great upon arrival to Ceannabhan Cottage. This would be a nice touch, even just a small carton of milk in the fridge. Two things that stood out that required some tlc upon arrival were the paintwork of the wood inside the house and the upkeep of the garden. But the homeliness, good facilities, setting and location of the cottage could not be faulted. There are little touches like nice bed linen, nice crockery, turf, matches and sticks left out for added comfort so added with the fact that it’s a beautiful homely holiday home, any shortcom...more
Everything was fine and well described, a quiet place and close to the town. It would have been nice to have a kind of terrace to be able to sit outside -the weather was great . One little thing we missed : Hangers for clothes in the wardrobe downstairs. We din`t check upstairs, as we were only the two of us.
Well appointed and had everything we needed. When we arrived it felt cold and musty as it hadn't been used for a few weeks but an hour's heating sorted that out. 2 tea towels for a group of 8 people not seen as sufficient. . Would book it again.
The family celebrated my mother's 90th birthday with a weekend stay in Murlach Lodge. It was a fantastic venue with plenty of room for everyone and lots of space to hang around in the house. Would recommend it for a family gathering!
This is a great apartment. Location in centre of Clifden. Very spacious and well equipped. Perfect for large group as all bedrooms ensuite. Would recommend.
Lucy was very accommodating on our arrival. It's the perfect spot to rent with a group of friends with Clifden and it's local amenities close by. Some nice beaches not too far away too. Great value for money, extremely spacious and comfy house.
Great location and lovely cottage. Plenty of space and has all amenities. Cozy during the windy evenings .
House had everything required for a comfy relaxed holiday and the welcome pack was a lovely touch on arrival.
The attention and care from the staff at the station house from check in to check out was just exceptional. The apartment was more like a house than an apartment there was one bedroom downstairs and two located upstairs. It was very spacious and safe, I've a 14 month old who was in her element exploring the place. Would highly recommend this great for families
It was very good overall, I could have rated it excellent but the sound from the pressure pump upstairs was causing trouble. I hope the house owner will take care of it.
Glenbricken is superbly located 5 km from Clifden, overlooking a wonderful landscape of pastures, lakes and mountains. The owners are welcoming and always willing to help. The kitchen might have some more appliances, cutlery and the like to make it perfect.
Lakeview Cottage is a delightful cottage in a beautiful location. Agnes was an excellent host with the proporty in top condition.
Stayed for 1 week with family and friends. Kids had a great time... Facilities basic but all room nice and we didnt want for anything.... , rooms and living/kitchen areas nice...small cooking area off kitchen but not a problem for cooking for 12 . House is on a lovely quiet country lane surrounded by farms and stoned walled fields..Picturesque lake views of lough mask are only at end of the lane with historic ruins of Balimaine Abbey... (10 to 15 min walk or 3 min in car). Shore fly fishing here not great, but boats and guides readily available locally. Cong river and lough corrib also...more
We returned to this holiday house because it proved to be perfect for all our needs last year: plenty of space for children to skate and run around outside. The views from the front of the house are spectacular and the position is within easy reach of the village of Roundstone and beautiful beaches. There is a spacious, well-equipped kitchen with a large family table to eat and also another table in the lounge where we could play games and do jigsaws. The owner has installed wifi since last year which was an unexpected bonus. Breakfasting in the morning sun on the patio was a particula...more
House need a good clean, furniture dated, kitchen fine but needs a good clean, main bathroom nice but on suite off main bed room needs updating and a good shower put in. We put our own touches on the house for the week and had a lovely time
A very comfortable cottage with everything we needed with a fantastic view/location. Plenty of homely touches. Good WiFi. Well stocked.
Spacious apartment in central Clifden easy for all the shops and pubs and for the Sky Road! The underground parking was very useful .
Thanks for a lovely stay at your apartment. Clifden is a great place to use as a base to visit the area!
Great spot to stay. Very accessible to Clifden, Roundstone area yet far enough away to be restful. Scenery from front of cottage fabulous. Kitchen well equipped and clean. 2nd bedroom a little musty, bed not very comfy, but it is an old cottage. Plenty of space outside for children to play. Nice patio area with sunny aspect, if the weather is good. Would return.
The house is is a beautiful remote location but close enough to small shops and amenities. Rooms are all large and very comfortable. Great kitchen, all you need, great fireplaces that use turf. We understand it is remote but there is no wifi and the option to use the payable dongle is not great. It took 20euro and within 1 hour of very light browsing the 20euro ran out. Don't waste your money on the dongle. Go to the cafe instead. The hosts are excellent. We had a great holiday. We would love to come back,
We enjoyed a wonderful week in Pauls house on the Sky Road. The house is fantastically spacious and is well equipped. We were a small bit disappointed that the house was a bit musty when we arrived but after leaving the doors and windows open for an hour ( and dashing into clifden to spend way too much on fancy candles from Whistlestop) all was well. Another small setback was that the downstairs bedroom was not made up and we didn't have sheets for that bed so we were squeezed into the upstairs room. However, the utterly magnificent setting glossed over any difficulties we had so that we ...more
It was a privilege to stay in this historic building and the location was excellent. Some minor things - there was a shortage of tea cups for the size of the group staying and I had to purchase my own and parking outside the house was very difficult - particularly when having to reverse out onto the street outside. Overall it was a good experience.
The house is very nice but we have some points: i.e. There is no toilet for general use and maybe some nice chairs for outside would be nice.
We studied the reviews on Cleggan Beach house before we booked last January. Reviews were not great and we decided to go ahead with the booking due to the location. Reality was worse than expected when we arrived. It was not very clean and house was very dated / of poor function. Following problems: Fire alarms not working. These are dirt cheap and one new set per season wouldn't even cost €40 or at least change the batteries). Roller blinds not working in many rooms and chord not attached to the wall (They would be better off taking the blinds away completely). Hot water far too hot ...more
Very beautiful cottage, very well located, magnificent view and very quite. The cottage is lovely, and the owner helpful when we needed ( we had a problem with the shower).
The house was in an amazing location with lovely sea views and really quiet and peaceful. Our hostess was welcoming and helpful. There were many positives including the lovely garden with swings, and the front part of the house with deep window recesses. However, there were a few problems with the property. It's an old house which is mostly well maintained with a utility area with washer and dryer. While the kitchen was well equipped, the door of the gas oven had a broken seal which could have been easily fixed. There didn't seem to be facilities for recycling of waste as the owner collected...more
