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.
We have been going to Connemara for a number of years and this is without doubt the best house we have stayed in. The layout and standard of the house is top classt, it is like a home away from home. The location is excellent, between Clifden and Letterfrack. The views from the house, and the deck at the back are stunning - water and Connemara National Park. The owners are a pleasure to deal with, courteous and caring. I would highly recommend this house.
This old country cottage is a hidden gem that we were delighted to have found. This house had all facilities required, and provided us with a sense of warmth. It was easy to get comfortable in this house, and though small we viewed it more so as cosy. All aspects of this home - from a beautiful location to a wonderful host - made our stay in Tí Tom Bán one we will never forget.
Had a lovely time and the accommodation was perfect; many thanks. Ideally located near the town and with access to great facilities, beaches, restaurants - we had a lovely relaxed stay
A most relaxing place to while away the day with views to soothe and make you smile. The house was very well equipped and Bernie very welcoming. Thank you Stella, Alan & Betty
Excellent position, friendly people, large & comfy spaces, well suited for two families. Great deal price, really appreciated. Suggested!
We have just finished a holiday at Turbot cottage and had a great time there - we really didn't want to come home. The cottage is situated at the neck of the isthmus at Ardmore and the setting couldn't have been better, with a clear view out across a beautiful tranquil inlet on one side with the Atlantic ocean pounding away on the other. It is the very last house along a small boreen or laneway and, as a result, there is a sense of privacy not often found in such beautiful location. It has uninterrupted views across the dramatic Ardmore headland where we enjoyed early morning walk every day ...more
Excellent internet , great kitchen and lovely views this place is spectacular. Really pleasant for children and good location to get into Clifden. Amenities are done really well and great to have a drier and washing machine. Would definitely recommend this for a family or group for a holiday.
Flat E2 had everything that we required. The Welcome Pack that was provided on arrival ,was very much appreciated. It consisted of all the basic necessities required. The flat was conspicuously clean and was very comfortable.It was situated in an excellent location near the town centre . We had free access to all the facilities at the Station House Hotel.
We are just back from a very pleasant holiday in Clifden. We rented Dooneen which was a home away from home. The location could not have been better, a 5 minute walk from the gorgeous town of Clifden. The house itself is beautiful and had every amenity you could want, a fully equipped kitchen, spacious living areas and bedrooms. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who is travelling to the area.
We really enjoyed our stay however building work was taking place on sight and went on for 12 hours on one day in particular. We were not advised that the building work would be going on so this was very disappointing as we have two young boys and they couldn't play outside, not to mention the noise distruption. This was the only drawback, the property is very nice and comfortable.
Couldn't recommend Connemara Lettings enough after our stay. Yvonne and her team made the booking process easy and with plenty of information to ensure we made the most of our trip. The owner of the house was also extremely helpful and made checking in and out quick and hassle free. Seals Cove is in a fantastic location, especially for smaller kids I thought, as it is very short distance to two excellent beaches and a short drive into Clifden itself. I will be booking again in future as the fantastic customer service on offer makes booking with Connemara Lettings an easy decision
We had a holiday to remember in the this beautiful part of Co Galway. Our hosts Sheila and Michel were lovely - attentive, welcoming and friendly. The location is remote next to the water with stunning views of the mountains and surrounded by cows, Connemara ponies, donkeys and sheep but close to the pretty fishing village of Roundstone with its painted houses, seafood bars and stunning beaches with crystal clear waters for fabulous swimming (Dogs & Gorteen Bays). We had a ball - thank you Sheila and Michael.
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!
The whole family decided to take a holiday together this year and found Fort Lodge on the internet. We couldn't have been more delighted when we saw the house and met the proprietors. The house was perfect size for us as there were 10 of us in total including the 3 children and our daughter with special needs. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed - even down to the toys for the children. Maria & Tom were the perfect hosts and made sure we needed for nothing while we were there. They were so friendly and were on hand at all times if needed. The house is so spacious wi...more
Superb location with stunning views right beside the sea. The house is large with picture windows looking out onto the sea. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. We spent Christmas there and when we arrived the house was decorated and the owner had put up a beautiful Christmas tree. He had also left logs and turf for the stove. So hepful and welcoming. Its a 10 minute walk to Cleggan village and about 15 minutes drive to Clifden. Highly recommend a visit.
Our stay at Derryinver House was wonderful. The views of the water were beautiful and could be seen from many places throughout the house. We enjoyed our short walk up to the village center and around the surrounding area. Marie and Charlie were always available to answer any questions we had. Thank you for the lovely accommodations.
We spent the first week of April staying at this amazing property. The house is beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could want. It is also warm and inviting considering we had some really cool days. The location is wonderful with a selection of beach walks literally on the doorstep and a lovely view of Bunowen Pier and Connemara ponies grazing in a paddock just outside the kitchen/diner. I would definitely recommend this property.
We stayed there three years ago and again this year . It's a fabulous elegantly appointed house with wonderful views. I hope to rent it again next year if it's available. Highly recommended. Michael Henderson
Swims before breakfast, long walks along the beaches, football and golf with the young ones on the common area, fishing if you're into it...no need to drive the car unless extra supplies needed! Couldn't have loved it more. Super accommodation. Cosy and in the most perfect location. Thanks for everything!
A massive thank you for an excellent stay at Hill House. The house is absolutely beautiful and set in such a perfect location. All of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished with lots of home comforts. The kitchen was very well equipt and was where we spent the majority of our time. Doors opening out on to decking meant children could be inside and out and we felt very safe letting them play. The sitting room was very spacious and although not as comfortable as the rest of the house it provided everything we needed. The location of the house is excellent, although at the top of a very small but...more
I stayed with a group at Capolla house, and found the house perfect for a get together. I did some baking and entertaining, the kitchen has everything you need (and a spotless oven), and the dining room is great for a group. The house is spotless, and overall very comfortable. It is a little walk from the town centre, which is a small negative if its very rainy.
The place is beautiful. The view, the peacefullness, as well as the cozy studio. We had a lovely stay, and kathleen, the owner and host is absolutly great. Most recommended.
Honeysuckle Lodge was my home for a month, along with other friends and family. We were super comfortable there and enjoyed the beautiful countryside as well as the leafy lane to town. The owner of the house was gracious and responded promptly to every query. A perfect place in a gorgeous part of Ireland.
Our visitors from Australia fell in love with this property. Access to the common ground and to the beach was a big plus.
Beautiful location in a village with lovely people ! Lots of beaches and places to eat near by and the apartment was lovely modern and clean .
Truly a comfortable and wonderful house to rent for two weeks. The views from the living and dining room were beautiful and I didn't mind cooking in the big kitchen!
We stayed in Roisins House for a week in June. The whole family together, it was the ideal house, layout was perfect for big family holiday. Bedrooms were clean, comfortable and homely, all the bedding and towels were lovely, good quality and soft. Everything in house you could possibly need. Had a big peat and log fire every night, amazing. The views were amazing, looking out over the hills and water, great garden for BBQ and children. Close enough to town to walk to if you enjoy walking, Clifden town is beautiful, great shopping, lovely restaurants and brilliant pubs, Guinness was great. ...more
house is large with large bedrooms and other communal areas. 2 bathrooms plus three bedrooms with shower and one more shower room upstairs. lovely views from all bedrooms, and rooms downstairs. The dining area is suitable for 10+ people and the table extends to accommodate that number. (I contacted the owner to ask if it would seat 10 people and they said another table could be moved in but, as it turned out, there is no need once the central 'leaf' has been used.) The kitchen was 'tatty round the edges' but serviceable with trim coming off cupboards etc. The pots/pans/cutlery/glasses etc are ...more
Absolutely fantastic holiday home, facilities, location and scenery. Kids had a whale of a time with the beach right across the road. Really takes the stress out of holidaying having the comfort of all available facilities in the house ... drying / washing clothes etc. The scenery is breathtaking on all sides and everywhere is so accessible. Thanks for a thoroughly top class stay.
We enjoyed our stay in this spacious apartment within the heart of town. It was quiet and well equipped. The upstairs living area was especially spacious and nicely furnished. One bedroom was of adequate size with a queen sized bed, the other bedroom a bit small with a smaller bed. Everything was clean and as indicated in the advertisement. It was nice to have adequate parking with easy access to the unit. We spent our days venturing out into the surrounding countryside, enjoying restaurants and trad music at the evenings in town.
This house was everything we hoped it would be. In a perfect setting and well situated between two lovely little towns while at the same time in a private place overlooking the sea. Inside was extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished with everything one could possibly need. The mezzanine was a bonus with a large bedroom and an extremely comfortable bed and its own bathroom. We could not have asked for anything more.
This is a very nice place to stay in Clifden. Maybe the nicest. That being said, it is down a long, outdoor stair. Be aware of that if you have steamer trunks, barbells or other heavy travel gear. Likewise, the directions aren't intuitive. It can be hard to find, at least it was for us. It is well-appointed, utterly private, close to everywhere you want to be and has the best view in town. Did I mention Helen's pretty nice, too.
Aunty Bo's was a great house- so much space and really well equipped. We were a party of 4 adults and 5 kids staying for the week and the house worked really well for everyone. It's also very quiet so everyone managed to sleep well- no squeaky floor boards!! The location is great with lovely views and plenty of room in the garden. We would definitely like to have a repeat visit!
We found Whitethorn excellent value...Ideal family location ..only 3 miles from Cliften...house in great condition..very clean...our host was very helpful and hands on if we needed anything...highly recommended.
Atlantic View Lodge was a great place for our family while visiting Clifden and the surrounding area. The home is well appointed and was a nice set up for my husband and I and our 2 grown sons. We contacted Gosia to get the keys for the home. She was able to let us in the home a few hours early as our flight landed in Shannon at 6:15 am. We had one minor problem with the power in the laundry room. Gosia came over quickly to investigate. We let her know we were going to be out most of the day and when we returned the problem was fixed. The house is a short walk to town and a short drive ...more
Our facilities in Balon were top class. Location excellent..house in very good condition. .very clean ..and will definitely return in 2017...Yvonne in Connmeara lettings was excellent as was Dot our liason lady for our house. We are very happy to recommend this property.
Great location in town centre. Clean and well appointed. Very comfortable beds. Customer service was excellent. We did have a small problem with the hot water and second shower but when reported Yvonne attended within 5 minutes! Thanks very much we had a very comfortable stay.
Some basic equipment needs updating*. WiFI is frustrating as it is an extension from main house and depends who is using it or how many persons are on it.Garbage/ bin collection needs more explanation.It would be helpful if there was a quick 'lady bird' information on very local beaches and how to get there, pubs* shops- might be helpful to foreign visitors? This is a very comfortable house. * descale kettle *a new ( Dyson , Hoover) needed- just to clean up!
Excellent, spacious property in a great location for touring Connemara. Property was clean, well maintained and great for our party of couples and kids. The property was also dog-friendly (which was the reason we picked this one).
We had a wonderful stay in Fushia Cottage. The owners were very helpful and responded very quickly to any query we had. The cottage is a a beautiful location opposite Omey Island. We will definitely stay here again.
Excellent accommodation, excellent location, owners were very accomodating and friendly. Would recommend with no hesitation - I would book again if back in the future .
Dolan Cottage was an excellent house to stay in. It was very clean, all necessary household equipment was present and made our stay very comfortable. It was a warm, cosy house with excellent views. The owner, Jimmy Ridge, was very welcoming, he met us and brought us to the house and showed us around. He returned on the day we were leaving to thank us for renting his house. The house was centered between Roundstone village and Clifden. The beaches were fabulous, the food in local restaurants, Mitchell's in Clifden and the bakery, Walsh's in Clifden was gorgeous. Local people were very friendly...more
A very nice house, an excellent location and what views! You're practically eating your breakfast two steps away from the horses.
House bigger than expected, loads of room, open fires, under floor heating, comfortable beds. Very remote but that's what we were wanting. Near to Keogh's pub which has lovely food and a garden for the kids to play in. Some beautiful beaches nearby with rockpools and golden sand. There was no washing machine which would've been handy. Also some of the bedside lamp plugs are 2-pin but were plugged into a normal plug socket which I think is a bit unsafe!
Loved the location and the house. Will almost certainly return to same place. Only downside is 1 bathroom for larger groups sharing is difficult. Also one bed is a queen size - cramped for 2 adults. Otherwise best location I've ever stayed in!!!
very nice, close to all amenities perfect for group weekends away, the rooms are spacious, kept very clean, it has what you want in terms or facilities, highly reconmend it
A lovely holiday rental in an ideal setting. Very comfortable and pretty well equipped. The Aga doesn't work which is a pity but there is a very serviceable gas cooker. Kitchen and utility room well equipped. Very nice bathrooms but the shower regulators need servicing. Large elegant bedrooms with very comfortable king size beds. Overall we were very happy at Heather Cottage and would love to return to this beautiful location.
Great location in the heart of the town.nice and bright. The outside terraces and outdoor furniture are maybe a bit tired. Also,there were a lot of cobwebs (we had to clean some before our friends arrived) but the property was clean otherwise.
Beautiful home in a lovely and scenic location. The owner Sarah was a lovely lady who had a turf stove waiting for us on arrival as it was a dull evening when we arrived. Also she had our daily essentials awaiting us when we got there so we didn't red to be rushing to any shops. Definitely would come back here.
Very quiet location, good for people who want slow down. Nice view to sea. Closed to Cleggan where you can take the ferry to the islands nearby. We had a unforgetable trip to Inishbofin with perfect weather. Good location to explore Connemary. Beautiful beaches closed by.
Very happy with our recent stay at this property. The house was lovely and an ideal location to the town. I would only say that if it is Triple Rooms that are booked there should be x3 beds in the bedroom to cater to this. Extra seating should also be provided to cater to numbers e.g. at breakfast/dinner etc. The starter pack provided was a lovely touch and made relevant to the reason for our stay. Maybe some extra keys to the front door as people were coming and going at different times. I would be very happy to stay at this house again in the future-great location. Thank you.
We choose clifden as a base to visit all surrounding areas ,during our week we climbed diamond mountain ,visited inish boffin ,had great food and trad music in cleggan and cycled the sky road .we dined in clifden town most evenings which has a huge choice to pick from .A great enjobale holiday had by all
Wonderful time spent relaxing with our young family. Nothing was too much trouble for Olive the owner
We were happy with the cottage in Spiddal and the owner was very welcoming .It was very comfortable and near shops and bars .
Great facilities at Glenbrikeen. My bin of turf was a very welcome addition as the weather wasn't great the first couple of days. The owner was very helpful directing us to the local beaches and restaurants.
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
une belle maison bien située avec une superbe vue et des prestations de qualité il a juste manque un peu de contact avec le proprietaire
Great views and handy walk to the village. Well equipped house with a great kitchen. Advertised as a 5 bed but in reality it's more like a 4 bed with extra entertaining space. Lots of space in the house for a large group. Outside needs to be smartened up and was concerned about safety at the front and patio door( unsafe gaps). Overall had a pleasant stay
Beautiful comfortable spacious home with all the utensils needed. My 3 children loved the home and looked forward to returning to it in the evenings. Yvonne and her team couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. I will defineatly recommend Connemara Lettings to my friends and family.
Cleggan Beach house is a very nice place to be. You will find everything, you need, if you like making holiday in silence and nature. We were 5 persons in different ages, all were pleased. It is also perfect for coming with a dog. You can make many excursions, there are pubs, where you can go short by car or bicycle. If the weather ist not good and it is cold, in the house it is warm and you can use the fireplace. If the weather is very good, you can sit outside.
Really enjoyed our stay .We had 4 children with us and there was plenty of room in the 3 bed apt.Great location in the heart of Cliften everywhere was just a short stroll away.The hotel and leisure centre being at our doorstep was a great advantage-helping to keep the kids busy despite the rain!
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this house to others, it really is a home from home with all modern conveniences tucked away nicely.
Just a general description of the house-equipment is missing (f.e. tv instructions). Anyway a veri fine house!
We enjoyed a wonderful week with our extended family, and occasional visitors, in a home that never seemed crowded, no matter how many people were there. Loads of beds, bedrooms, sofas, TV's, games consuls.... BRILLIANT Location is quiet, very rural and close too many excellent days out. No distant views but pleasant surroundings. The building is big, comfortable, light and well equipped. Loads of natural wood on show. The outside of the property was disappointing. Clearly there was a lot of WORK IN PROGRESS at the rear of the property. It is a building site, but was easily ignored as goo...more
We did enjoy our stay there. The house is great, marvellously located and very comfortable. It would be perfect of you could add some cooking ustensiles such as a frying pan. The rooms are very large and sunny.
appartement spacieux , dans résidence calme , un gros avantage accès au parking sous terrain avec un bip .aucun problème de stationnement . location à 100 m du centre de Clifden nous pouvions faire nos courses à pieds . seul petit bémol literie un peu molle .
Excellent location and great base for holidays. Just above Roundstone, walking distance from O'Dowds. Very family and kid friendly. Lots of parking space and incredible views.
Whilst the setting of the cottage was absolutely lovely - our complaint would be that the cooker had not been cleaned plus one or two other aspects. Also site says it is located 1.6 km from Cleggan - its is actually over 4km (approx)
Clifden is a great holiday base. Beds, linen & towels good quality. House otherwise a big disappointment. Smell of dampness everywhere. Kitchen and all bathrooms in urgent need of significant upgrade. Appliances ancient. TV too small and old. Urgent review of electrics & fire safety needed. We noticed smoke alarms were either disabled or missing altogether. Untidy and lots of weeds outside. Huge wasps nest in front hedge. Handles fell off doors at a touch, rusty screws at child eye level prevalent where handles should be. Blind in upstairs bedroom didn't work and had to use suitcases to bloc...more
We know this part of the west coast very well and love it. The Cottage is very homely and clean and the views are beautiful. For us the bedrooms were too small, we were a party of 5 adults, one room has three bunk beds in it! The master bedroom is small too. I think it would be better suited to a family with small children. We have rented many different cottages in the area and felt this was expensive in relation to others, paying a premium for the location I guess. But we did very much enjoy our stay.
We had a great time, in wonderful weather. But this was marred somewhat by a)a landlord who cannot be bothered to keep his property with any warmth charm or condition b)a very highly weekly cost which then has other hidden fees and extras . I cannot rate Yvonne Flaherty at the agency highly enough...she went out of her way to sort problems and get things changed, really tremendous; and so i would recommend Connemara Lettings and would use them again...but not this property. my Father and Sister were staying down the way, and we were embarrassed to invite them round, and then they found...more
The owners are very friendly and the location is very good, in a quiet place. But the household goods are not enough, and there is a high humidity in the house.
