The cottage was beautiful and very accommodating. It had everything a family would need for a carefree stay. It had enough back up supplies so as not to run out. We were very sorry to have to leave. There was a pub and store with in walking distance if you did need something. The surrounding county was absolutely amazing. I would love to return there some day.
This house is perfect. Just a few minutes walk from a beautiful selection of beaches with a fantastic view across the bay to the mountains. Every thing is comfortable and luxurious. There were Gallons of hot water and extremely comfortable beds. I would go back again any time!
Spacious comfortable house in a nice location. Well equipped with big garden for the kids to play inext. Unlike a lot of rentals the bedrooms and beds were big and comfortable. A drawback for us was that the house is not pet friendly but given the quality of the house it is understandable.
We stayed here for a week with children and the house was perfect. It is very well equipped and more spacious than it looks on the photos. There is a nice outdoor seating area (weather dependent!) and it has a washer and dryer, TV with Netflix, board games and tourist information. It was warm and cosy and the hosts were very helpful. Everything in Letterfrack is in walking distance. Veldons is great for local seafood and you can walk through the village to Connemara National Park and Diamond Hill.
We were all very happy at Hillview and found it to be a lot better than we’d expected - Good expectation management you might say! Unusually I actually suggest you might be well served in taking some new photos of the house which show how spacious it is, how many people can fit around the kitchen table etc, as we felt we needed to bring with us by car from the UK extra tables and chairs (not necessary!) However it would be helpful if there were a larger freezer as catering for a large family group day by day on holiday can be quite a task - We actually drove over with our own freezer! That was...more
We’ve had an amazing time in Ballyconneely. The house was perfect for our family, ie enough bedrooms to sleep roughly 20 people, spacious/modern kitchen and sitting rooms. The host and caretakers were friendly, very helpful and easily to contact via mobile and email. Everyone from 6 months of age to 82 years enjoyed the stay. Thank you!
The house was beautiful and the setting amazing. We had a fabulous relaxing, stress free, and friendly stay. We will definitely return.
Lovely large house with loads of character, beautiful outlook and good location to explore Galway/Connemara. The house stands in its own grounds providing privacy and is not far from a small shop and petrol station. A car is of course a requirement. Bedrooms are large and comfortable and the kitchen well equipped for preparing and serving family meals. We would thoroughly recommend.
An excellent house with large rooms, generous space, straightforward design. We enjoyed it very much. Thank you Mark for your very friendly welcome and assistance in a few questions!
Perfect size - we were a party of six adults, two children, a toddler, a baby and three dogs! Lovely sunny front garden - sun all day from morning to evening.Ten minutes walk to Clifden town centre through two housing estates.
Cottage relaxing and homely, felt relaxed as soon as we began our holiday, the views and location were fantastic. Plenty of equipment to cook with and cosy when weather turned poor. Beds were comfy! Would have loved to stay another week!
We stayed in the house for a week at the end of June(Me, my wife and 3 small children). The house and the view is amazing. We were lucky with the weather too which made it even better. The beaches are very close to the house and are superb. Could not recommend highly enough. Probably the nicest house in the area. Would love to return some day.
This property suited my wife and me just fine, views over harbour and Connemara hills beyond. Good food in the local hostelry and very friendly people everywhere
Beautiful house and settling is heavenly. The sound of the waves in the distance is magical. Cant recommend the house enough. The team were excellent to deal with to arrange booking and access.
Wonderful house and location. Nothing more to say than everything perfect. Highly recommended and we will try to come back.
Mooi gelegen, comfortabel huisje. Het heeft alles wat je nodig hebt en de openhaard zorgt voor de rest. Het huisje ligt op een paar minuten lopen van zee. En verder een prima uitvalsbasis om Connemara te verkennen.
Very warm hosting, The hostst did take care of all of our belongings. The stay was great and we felt very well!
A beautiful peaceful setting overlooking the sea on the Sky Road. The owner was very helpful to ensure we had what we needed and to check in the week that we were ok. Three bedrooms with little ensuite each was perfect. Beds very comfortable. We loved seeing the newborn calf with its mum in the field adjacent to the property. Many thanks to Josephine for our lovely stay.
The central area , kitchen come sitting area was very cosy with a lovely wood burning stove. Carmel welcomed us and gave us fresh eggs from her chickens, and some provisions. The main rooms bed was not comfortable. The twin bedroom was fine. It could be improved with addition of proper shower surround rather than a clingy curtain, and new mattress in main bedroom. The addition of a serving bowl or two in kitchen and a few more knives and forks would be good also. The photo doesn’t show the proximity to main road, which can be tricky to navigate entry and exit. Overall a sweet house ...more
We stayed here last summer too and are already planning to come back next year. The cottage is well furnished and cosy. A short walk from the sea. Beaches everywhere! Two minutes drive to Cleggan or Omey island. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a hassle free seaside holiday.
I booked with you the 3rd time now and it was - as always - just perfect. I will book again soon :)
We really enjoyed our time at this peaceful place! Because of a lot of antiques the house has a unique character. The beds are very comfortable. We loved to use the fireplace on rainy days. The housekeeper Miriam is a gem! Thanks a lot Miriam!
The cottage is a short walk from the village in a very quite location. Visiters have their own hens and can collected eggs everyday, a nice touch. Despite being behind a bigger property there are good views of the sea and the village. There is a small beach just across the road. We would stay there again.
The house is on the outskirts of Tullycross, but not too far to walk to the pub for a drink of an eveningmeal. A few minutes in the car and you find lovely beaches or impressing mountain scenery. The owners live next door and are friendly and helpful. The cottage contains everything you need for a nice stay: kitchen, tv, central heating and a comfortable shower. We had a most pleasant time here.
House was slightly difficult to find, particularly in the dark, The house was clean and well presented. Majella met us shortly after our arrival and helped us work out the heat, very welcome on a cold wet night in October. We were attending a function in Ballynahinch castle and it was in a good location for that, a short drive. Would stay again
We had an excellent stay at Sean’s cottage. The location is perfect with breathtaking views in all directions. The house is clean and comfortable. And the area has a lot to offer, from walks in Connemara National park, boattrips to Inishbofin, dinner or drinks in Roundstone. We could have spent here much more days! Thanks a lot for your hospitality!
Me and my family stayed for a week (6 of us) and it was amazing. Great safe beach across the road for the kids. Lovely food in the local pub. If there was one down side it was the house was so big we needed more family with us :-) I will be returning as soon as I can.
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
The perfect spot to explore Ireland’s beautiful west coast and Connemara. Secluded, cosy peaceful little cottage right on Killary Harbour. Go fishing and crabbing off little Rosroe Pier or just wander around the beautiful peninsula. Wood burning stove keeps it nice and warm!
Overall was very happy with our stay we were familiar with area so knew what to expect from location etc. house itself is well laid out and probably due to being near end of season could do with a little bit of maintaince but it did not take from our enjoyment. Squeaky doors and mattresses need turning or toppers - bit springy!
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
The cottage is very well equipped and modern inside. It was a very peaceful place to spend a few days. The surrounding scenery is stunning for cycling or walking.
For sure this is one of the most beautiful cottages in the area - one with its own 'personality' (thanks to some dedicated owners) and with its own history! If you are looking for something that feels typical for rural Connemara, you are in the right place. The cottage is comparatively small (good for a family of 3 or 4 for a comfortable stay), but it is furnished and equipped with great care and, above all, with great taste and love for Connemara: There was really nothing we didn't find in this place (maps/ utensils etc.) except maybe for more firewood ;-) (As it was pretty chilly out, we use...more
Das Haus und die Möbel/ Teppiche sind alt und verbraucht. Es war auch offensichtlich längere Zeit nicht vermietet. Die Teppiche waren verschmutzt, ebenso die Fenster. Und in fast jeder Ecke war Schmutz. Auch das Kochgeschirr gehört erneuert. Und die Kosten für Strom und Heizung sind auch nicht unbeträchtlich. Es hat keine Freude gemacht dort zu wohnen. Lediglich die zentrale Lage im Ort und Clifden himsel waren toll.
Location is very private with stunning landscape, yet only 10-15 mins drive from mini supermarket, restaurants, bars, island ferry and horse riding in Cleggan. About 25mins drive from Omey island....my favourite place in Ireland. House very well equipped for kids, games, DVDs, and beach toys. Kitchen well equipped too but oven not really hot enough for cooking - BBQ outside. Overall, a highly recommended property.
When I booked the cottage the website said it was basic which I didn't mind.I do mind a dirty cooker . A unusable kettle. ( I have thrown away better ones) old rusty fridge . Rusty items in the bathroom. The rest of the cottage was ok . Lovely views and walking distance to the beach.
A roomy well located house which in the face of it had everything we needed. However the furniture in living area was tired and therefore uncomfortable and bed linen stained (not dirty but needed replacement). Kitchen utensils adequate but a bit haphazard: chopping knives blunt and even bread knife was chopped off! The only wooden spoon was shredded and salad servers has paintwork(?peeling. Other utensils (eg grater, bottle stop) broken. Oven gloves dirty as were cushions and some chairs. Overall ok but for the prices we paid we would note the following: bathrooms had half used items from pr...more
We absolutely loved the cottage and had such a fantastic week there. Evelyn was so kind and obliging. The kitchen was very well equipped for elaborate cooking and the location was just stunning. The only thing I would say is that maybe people should be notified in advance that there is absolutely no phone signal there. We didn't really mind and in fact we loved the break from technology and "always-on" contact but some people might be nervous about the fact that they have to walk a few minutes up / down the road to make a call, even in the event of an emergency. The storage heater in ...more
I'd just like to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in preston cottage .It has a much loved old world feel to it with modern heating and washing facilities,the sea washing up at the end of the garden overlooked from the kitchen table.The very clever extension at the back of the cottage with two extra bedrooms and utility meant there was loads of room for all 7 of us.The only thing we missed was a tumble dryer .thanks Jude
My one fault with the house was the big hedge in front of house you couldn't see the view kids couldn't play in garden unless you were out with them because of hedge so for that reason I wouldn't go back to house...
We would definitely stay here again. It suited us perfectly. The location for those that love walking, cycling and wildlife is perfect. If you are not active the changing, stunning views from cottage and a book may be enough. The cottage was clean and well equipped. Although it sleeps eight, it could be tight with only one bathroom. A good shop, places to eat and pubs are nearby. Perfect all round
house might need small bit of upgrading island is ideal place for rest and relaxation good places to eat with lovely beaches if only weather was a little warmer
Cottage was more cosy than expected. I think the owner has to do something about the furniture in the living/kitschen though. The kitchen-table is poor and you cannot sit on the chairs anymore. Beds are good, heating and bathroom are excellent tip: provide for some wood for the heater. Location is just wonderfull!!!!! We will come back to this lovely cottage!!!
We were very disappointed..From the start we were confronted with all types of wires sticking outpfvarious places which was a majrwprry as we were aged 86,77 snd 73 at the time. Also the person in the room with the view was subjected to noise every time somebody used the water in other parts of the house. The front door was in poor condition and the microwave was not cleaned properly. We certainly will never return to that house again
Cottage was very damp and would not recommend it,it was 5 kilometres from nearest village,very remote and not suitable for families,views were amazing but that was as good as it got
We havent like at all the house. Very dirty, bad location. The dishwasher lose water. The house very wet. Very disaapointed.
