The Bothy is a wonderful cottage that has been refurbished to the highest standard. It has fantastic sea views and is only a short walk from the village. Highly recommended.
This was a brilliant holiday and a very beautiful area. We know the area well but loved this particular bit/ village . It was very quiet and near a beach / pier to walk in evenings . Michael and Noreen were there any time we had queries . Excellent seafood in Paddy Cullens down the road and fabulous places to visit nearby.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The view and accommodation are amazing and the hosts very welcoming.
Stayed for a week. Couldn't have asked for more. House was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely quiet location overlooking Omey Beach which is only a 5 minute walk. 15 minute drive to Clifden. Jackie and Paul were very friendly and accommodating, would highly recommend this property!
Beautiful location, the house is very comfortable, extremely well equipped and with every home comfort and more. Within walking distance to Sweeneys Pub, shop and post office. Stunning views of Omey Island from the House. External seats and chairs from which to enjoy the view or barbeques. The house is spotless and well cared for and though we have been here more than 4 times, each time the owners have added or updated the house to improve it further. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Excellent holiday home. Absolutely amazing facilities, fantastic hosts and we will be coming back. By far the best holiday home we have stayed in. Many thanks again.
What a fabulous spot, amazing views, walking distance to the water and Tullycross village. Everything you might need provided, home from home without a doubt. Thank you Fiona and Pat.
Being greeted by the owner was great and helpful. The house was located in a wonderful position overlooking the beach and Atlantic. Inside the house was spotless and contained all facilities necessary to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. We had a lovely week despite the weather. We will return
We spent a week in Mayo just outside Louisburgh. The property we stayed in was beautiful, very well maintained, bright and clean and had everything we required. Our hosts were very nice and helpful. We would definitely return to this property and beautiful Mayo.
We booked this property for our extended family [7 adults and a one-and-a-half year old] as it had 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms [3 en-suite]. The house appeared to be a relatively new build and was in excellent condition. The main room cum kitchen was spacious, with well stocked crockery, cutlery etc. While it was June, the weather was breezy and cool at times, yet the house was always warm and cozy [air to water heat pump and solar panels were really good] and gas and electricity were included in the overall cost of the week's rent. The house is 100m from Tully Cross village, around 3km from L...more
This house is very comfortable and homely . It has gorgeous views from the patio area at the rear of the house with a lovely bbq area with tables and seating. The location being so close to Ballyconneely village is fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone renting in the area.
We, a group of 4 adults with two dogs, stayed in August 2021. Mary was very welcoming and helpful. The house is very comfortable with plenty of modern amenities available. The beach is about a 10/15 min walk from the house. Beautiful location and views. A true piece of Connemara.
Stayed with my family at this holiday house and couldn't ask for better. Great view, great communication and John the caretaker did an amazing job, he looked after us and he made sure everything is ok. The roads are a bit tight but as soon you drive slow it s allright. 100% we will book it again for our next holiday. The price was way lower than expected!! Amazing. Dan and Malinda
Very comfortable cottage in a great location stocked with everything we needed and very carefully looked after by Adele, who was very friendly and available if needed. We would love to come back.
The cottage was authentic and original as we expected we have rented other cottages like this one before. we were grateful to have our dogs. The sitting room was very uncomfortable and needed the dresser removed it was just in the way.was of no use you could then place the settee nearer the fire and had a larger TV. The 2 small chairs in front of the fire look good but were very uncomfortable to sit in all evening. The toilet in that room I'm afraid smelt bad from the drain so kept it shut, had no need for another toilet These are constructive comments not to offend the owners It t...more
this was a great place, loved separate bathrooms in all rooms. were I coming back I would try to book the same place.
A fantastic location, well appointed and comfortable accomodation. Lovely friendly and helpful host.
we had a wonderful stay in connemara. the cottage is really well located, the owner is adorable and gave us the best recommendations for visiting the region. the view from the cottage is exceptional. we were able to see 3 dolphins. the cottage is well appointed each bedroom has its own bathroom. the kitchen is very well equipped. we will come back with pleasure
Comfortable cottage in beautiful setting. Lovely walks from the house. Private sun trap patio overlooking harbour. Ideal for relaxing break in stunning surroundings
Stayed in the Chalet in aug 21. Spotlessly clean. Comfy beds and couch. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. There was milk, water and tea and coffee left for us. Thanks Sheila. Peaceful location, great views from main bedroom over mountains. Beautiful beaches nearby. I would highly recommend this accommodation. Lots to do locally and we got great weather, which was a bonus .
Real traditional Irish Cottage. Kids loved the upstairs loft to sleep in. Couple of kms walk into Cleggan Town or down to Claddaghduff. Only thing we would change is the hedging to be cut back. Very hard exiting the property and trying to see out onto the narrow road.
Bright, cozy cottage in a great location. A very short drive from the town of Clifden and all of the attractions of North West Connemara. The cottage was immaculately clean, warm and the kitchen had every utensil and appliance you could possibly need. I really couldn't fault a single aspect of this property and it was excellent value for money. Thank you.
This cottage is excellent for getting some peace and quiet and to relax your mind. The surrounding landscape is beautiful. The cottage had everything we needed and was decorated in a very pleasant way. There are lots of great walks and drives within an hour's drive away. We certainly enjoyed our stay there and will be very happy to return some day.
Stoneacre's location in beautiful Leenane, looking out on to Killary fjord, is hard to improve on. The house is extremely comfortable and spacious, with lots of attention given to detail. Another real benefit is the local support from Conor, who looks after the property. The only reason I've given 4 rather than 5 for 'Condition' is because of the cooking facilities. The Aga looks good but isn't used, and the electric cooker in the Utility room is very old, and would benefit from being replaced. Our stay was always going to be too short, really hoping to be there again next year.
Loved this accommodation, amazing location and perfect for four people. Loved looking out of the window at the beautiful view, I would defiantly stay here again, it would be my first choice.
Stayed here in June 2022 with my wife and parents in law. We loved it! The cottage was beautifully located on the northern shore of Kylemore lake, in an area that is both dark and quiet at night. The host, Geraldine, was friendly and helpful, and she even allowed us to plug our Electric Vehicle in at the house to charge it. The cottage was close to Kylemore Abbey, Letterfrack and Connemara National Park, but Clifden and even Westport in County Mayo were perfectly doable in terms of driving time.
Perfect house for us, family of 4. lovely quiet beach beside the house and very convenient for lots of things to do in Connemara, close to Clifden too. Scenery is beautiful. We intend to return.
We were very happy in a very comfortable house in a good location, ten minutes from Clifden. We will be back again.
We loved the cottage: it has all the comforts and the location is simply stunning. You can enjoy the absolute peace and tranquillity of an island while not missing out on the opportunity to explore Connemara. The cottage itself has a rustic, cozy feeling and offers beautiful views of the surrounding area. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom has been renovated recently and tastefully. There were two of us, plus a large dog, and we felt the size of the cottage was just ideal for a couple but could also fit 3 people easily:-). Customer service was excellent and the staff and caretak...more
We made our reservation with Connemara and Mayo Cottages. They were easy to contact, very helpful and gave us excellent service and instructions. We stayed a Watersedge Mulranny. The house is in a beautiful setting and with far reaching views of the water. Brilliant as a base to discover the wonderful County of Mayo. On arrival we were greeted by the housekeeper who made us feel very welcome and was available for contact during our stay. We had all the facilities that were mentioned and all we needed. We especially enjoyed the log fire in the evenings.
Perfect location for a relaxing extended famiy stay. Chidren have lots of opportunities to explore safely. Adults can imbibe in creamy pints and fresh sea food. If weather is indifferent just put on some wet gear and embrace the glorious outdoors.
We had a wonderful stay at Caher house and were welcome by Theresa whom was always reachable on the phone if needed - the location is easy to find and in front of a small lake - about 15min from Clifden city which is perfect to plan activities in Connemara area. Count almost one hour though to rallye Galway but honestly Clifden beats it for authenticity and pubs like Lowry's just make it a place to go. The house is huge and over equipped with multiple bath/shower/toilets which is perfect for a stay with multiple couples - but there is a twin room which could be fine for kids. Would definitivel...more
We had a lovely stay at this cottage/bungalow.It's in a quiet spot ,a bit of the main road so you won't wake up by traffic. There is a lovely view from the living room and the kitchen.It's a great spot from to explore the area.Kylemore very near.And the national park. The house itself was clean and comfortable and fully equipped kitchen. The host had even milk bread and butter tea etc in the kitchen.Very kind. I would love to stay here again in the future.
We had a very nice stay at this cottage, it is well located and was spotless on arrival. It's also deceptively large too. Some of the decor could do with a refresh but it's generally a lovely place to be and is very cosy at night in front of the fire at night, the walk to the town is relatively short although there are a few steep hills. One thing I'd recommend for future visitors is to check what is open on the island before arrival if travelling at the end or start of the season, a lot of businesses (restaurants etc) hadn't updated their online info (including the ferry service!) so that lea...more
This is an excellent cottage set in a really lovely location. It was clean, well furnished & equipped and it warm and cosy even in the month of March. The landlady, Ann, was most helpful and accommodating. The customer care service provided by Connemara Coastal Cottages was superb. This was a really great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Cottage. The home is super comfortable, plenty of space for us three women. The kitchen is easy to use and the bathrooms are nicely renovated. I loved the handmade quilts! The view is spectacular from the cottage, and the drive down the coast is lovely. It is not near anything, which was just fine for us. About 20 minutes to get into Roundstone for a pub, coffee, and shops.
Beautiful house in idyllic location. Very spacious with plenty of seating for all. Only drawback was the beds. We found them uncomfortable and in need of new better quality mattresses.
We stayed in this house for a week and could not fault it. It was spotlessly clean and had everything. It's an older house so it only has 1 bathroom but this didn't cause us any problems as a family of 6. It's in good condition. It is close to the road but with trees in front of the house it provides plenty of screening so it's not noisy. There's a massive garden so loads of room for the kids to kick a ball in. House may not be suitable for very young kids ie toddlers. House is very close to some beautiful beaches and is very well located. 4 decent sized bedrooms the house can comfortably slee...more
We had a wonderful stay in Westry Cottage. The location is perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all - no internet, TV or phone signal (unless you sit in the window seat) - it was just what we were looking for. The cottage is fairly basic but had everything we needed for a week and the views across the lough to the mountain provided us with all the entertainment we needed as we watched the constantly changing weather patterns sweep by. While the location of the cottage is secluded it is also within easy reach of Connemara's many attractions - a beautiful beach just a couple of km aw...more
Beautiful cottage and convient location. The cottage was comfortable and the owners were very welcoming and gave nice advice to discover the region
We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Lovely and cosy and only a 2 minute drive to the fabulous Old Head Beach. The house provided everything we needed for our stay and Bruce was nearby should we have needed anything. So many beaches nearby, the lovely village of Louisburgh and many scenic spots. We would definitely recommend this house
We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage, found it to be very well stocked with everything you could possibly need!
Une très belle adresse au cœur du connemara pour tous ceux qui veulent le découvrir. La route devant n'est pas passante et dévoile une superbe vue. L'hôte est très accessible et n'hésite pas à vous donner les renseignements que vous avez besoin quand vous lui demandez sans être envahissante. Un grand merci pour le thé, café et les scones maison qu'elle avait préparé et laissé à notre attention. Arrivée à 23h et départ à 2h, elle vous fait confiance. Super. Une belle adresse.
Wonderful location for points east, west, south and north! House is in shade of overhanging trees, which could be good in a heatwave. Very convenient Woodfire Pizzeria across the road. -- 2 downsides: we could only get one ring of the four-ring gas hob to light and the mattress on the ensuite bed was in poor condition (should be replaced).
Traditional Irish cottage in an almost idyllic location far from the madding crowd. Loved living a humble lifestyle. The cottage has everything one needs.. Fabulous walks and awesome views everywhere.
This house was a big disappointment and far too expensive for the cheap fittings and fixtures. Everything was poor quality and done on the cheap. Linen was synthetic except for the towels. Kitchen was sparsely furnished, bathrooms tiny and poorly finished with no toilet paper, soap, not even a toilet brush!!!, The living area floors were laminate wood effect. ThThere was nothing which you would expect from a house costing this, really felt we had been cheated. The exterior was miserable with no sense of care or comfort. On top of all this we were asked to strip the beds, clean the whole house ...more
As timeshare owners we appreciate the upgrade work that has taken place both within the property and to the approach avenue/roadway - no more pot holes is a great plus.. The cushions and dining chair fabric seats urgently need to be re-upholstered as they are frayed and shabby and let the dining area down, so hopefully this is on the list for the coming winter maintenance. We always bring rinse aid with us for the dishwasher and this is always, in our experience, in need of replenishing the machine also indicated that it needed salt so I hope someone keeps this under review. General cleanlines...more
Comfortable house convenient to hotel and short walk to the beach. Beautiful location with view of the lake.
Beautiful location there are just a few things that should be sorted with the property. The house has damp on the inner walls in the bedrooms which leave a musty smell not good for people with chest ailments. The incline up to the gate badly needs repairing as there is a large pothole and a lot of loose gravel that cause the wheels to spin as you drive through the gate.The heating within the cottage needs to be updated it states on a laminated piece of paper on the wall in the kitchen that the fire heats the back boiler which it certainly doesnt. I found that out when the immersion switch wen...more
Pack your bags and just go! We were 2 kids (6 yo), 2 teenagers (15&16) and 3 adults (40’s). Wonderful trip!
The house is a lovely spacious house, we were 4 adults, teenager & baby and space wasn't an issue. We needed to call the owner to clarify location & they were very helpful & kind. The house itself is very very remote. It is a solid 10 minute drive from the village & the road is not safe to walk so thats not an option. The road to the house itself is just the width of one car so if you meet anything it means someone reversing to the closest gateway. These are not necessarily negatives I just would have preferred knowing in advance exactly how remote the house was. There are sheep wandering free...more
Nous avons mis les notes précédentes pour les raisons suivantes : Propreté : meubles cuisine et tiroirs un peu sales. Frigo non nettoyé avec aliments périmés ? Ménage très approximatif. Service client : pas de contact, une feuille avec explications sur chauffage, eau, électricité minimum et feuille de calcul charges à régler. Confort : Bien mais pas de télé (c'était indiqué), ni radio. Cela compte dans le ratio coût/prestations. Condition : Bien. Vrai cottage traditionnel. Emplacement : Très bien situé à 20 minutes à pied de la plage de Glassilaun. Par contre vue mer assez éloignée et ca...more
The location of the cottage is very nice, the landlady is kind and very friendly. But the condition of the furniture is very bad. The whole cottage was very dusty and with planty of cobwebs. Unfortunately there was no vacuum cleaner for clean for ourselfs.
I stayed in this house with three other family members for a week in August 2021. It's a very clean, tidy, compact and comfortable house in a very quiet and private location. We didn't expect WIFI so the 11 year old was thriilled to discover the box on the wall when we arrived. The road where it's located is a cul-de-sac so very few cars passing and dead quiet at nighttime. Shortly across the main road there is a beautiful long mountain looped road leading up to Maiméan - however care is required when crossing the main road as it's extremely busy - but once you get across it's a pleasure to wa...more
Although the house was comfortable enough, the shower barely dribbled and there wasn’t enough hot water for 2 baths so I’ve no idea how 6 would manage. The view of the sea is completely blocked by trees and so you just see a field. Very poor value I thought for an expensive house rental.
This apartment is down a small alley next to a pub. The location was great as it was only a few minutes drive from Kylemore Abbey and you could walk to Connemara National park. However, the property itself was very damp and cold. Constantly lots of moisture on the bathroom floors. There was loads of webs and spiders around the apartment when we arrived so we had to clean it ourselves before we unpacked.
