We absolutely loved everything about the Convent and will definitely return. The location, facilities and attention from owner were second to none.
This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location. Oysters were fabulous. We will definitely be back.
We had a delightful stay at The Stone House - Rachel was a lovely host and we were very comfortable. It is small - but plenty big enough for the two of us, and in a very nice position across from the river. A particular surprise was the beautiful garden, and there was every thing we needed for our week’s stay. It was so quiet and peaceful. Newport is a great base to explore the region and we enjoyed the pub and the other amenities available in the town. Highly recommended!
High quality accomodation in peaceful location with lovely views and easy access to the Greenway. Good base for traveling to nearby beaches and walks in Achill and Mulraney areas.
We had a lovely stay in west connemara. It is an ideal house for a family,great kitchen living space and nice garden outside for kids to play in. It is close to lots of beautiful beaches,the ferry to Inishboffin and there are ample restaurants,coffee shops within 10-15 minutes drive.
Beautiful house . Everything u need in it. Lovely big siting room also a living room good sized bedrooms and patio area . Will definitely return house was spotless. Can’t say enough nice things about our host Nora whom we want to say big thank u .
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!
House is very well laid out and had plenty of room for our group of small kids teens and adults.perfect location small walk down to clear waters of omey strand.
Beautiful house very well equipped for a family of 5. No stone left unturned when it came to what was supplied in the house. Good shop nearly right next door which sold everything. Would definitely recommend. Thankyou for a wonderful stay!!!!
A beautiful, well presented holiday home. Immacutely clean. Fabulous views form the living room window! Easy to drive to several beaches, Louisburgh and Westport. We appreciated the Wii, guest Netflix account, facilities for doing laundry and the home made scones! Only improvements we would suggest were some hanging space for clothes (a small rail or wardrobe somewhere would be good) and an outdoor seat to enjoy the views on a dry day would be perfect!
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.
We loved our stay; what a gorgeous location and spacious house! The views of the sea and the islands are spectacular. Thanks so much to Veronica and PJ for your warm hospitality. We would highly recommend this property.
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.
I enjoyed the stay at the Bothy very much. It would have been easier if I had a car, because Cleggan is quite remote and there are only 3 busses a day. If you have a car it's an excellent starting point to hike and enjoy the magical scenery.
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.
Everything we needed for our stay was provided ,with a warm welcome and scones on a late night arrival. All the comforts of home with a fully equipped kitchen and selection of condiments often not provided in such rentals. Apartment was clean and everything was in working order. Peaceful and tranquil location perfect for walkers, cyclists, and sea swimmers. Scuba Dive West is less than 10 minute walk for those that like to scuba dive.
House was perfect for us. Fire lighting. Very clean. Loads of puzzles and a wide variety of books. I fell in love with Connemara and Glasoilean. Climbed Diamond Hill. Walked in the woodlands out in the Inagh Valley. Loved my week in Culfin
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.
Great location and space for 8 adults. Suggest more towels be provided. They were provided when requested.
We loved our stay here. Very warm and cozy. The host was stunning and very helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to go back there.
Comfortable cottage in beautiful setting. Lovely walks from the house. Private sun trap patio overlooking harbour. Ideal for relaxing break in stunning surroundings
We had a very comfortable stay in a beautiful location. Our hosts Marie and Sean were very warm and ever so hospitable, which made us all feel very welcome. There was a plate of delicious freshly baked scones waiting for us when we arrived, which didn't last long! The apartment had everything we needed. It was cosy and comfortable and we would definitely come back. The kitchen was very modern and well equipped and had all the amenities you would need. The bathroom had a lovely powerful shower and hot water whenever we needed it. There was tons of natural light coming in the huge windows. Th...more
Absolutely gorgeous property, comfortable and had every thing we could need. The views are beautiful.
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.
196 Tooreena was the perfect spot for our week in Renvyle. The sea views were gorgeous under any skies and our children loved feeding apples and carrots to the mare and her foal. John made us feel very welcome with his walk thru upon arrival. We replaced the toaster, which wasn’t working on our arrival and he comped us our fuel charge in exchange. The house was lovely and comfortable for our family of four and we will certainly be back again! Thanks a million, John!
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.
We stayed here for a week in August 2022 having booked very late. The chalet accommodated 4 of us without feeling overcrowded. It provided everything we needed for our holiday. It was a bit bare with all soft furnishings removed for Covid reasons. A few pictures on the walls would give it a bit of character. We only found out about seating area above the house on our last night which was a pity. The location is perfect with a nice walk to Tullycross village on a quiet road. We would really recommend this chalet for someone looking for a base for an activity based stay. Thanks Kenneth and Shiel...more
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 enjoyed the peaceful location of this property with its wonderful views across the lake and mountains beyond. However, although the property was generally comfortable we did have some niggles. The low water pressure meant that showers were more of a mission than a pleasurable experience. The bathrooms and the kitchen were clean but there was a lot of dust and dead insects that hadn’t been dealt with. There is clearly a great deal to see in the area and so we were a little disappointed that there was very limited information on hand in the property. Hopefully, this can be addressed for the b...more
A wonderfully equipped cottage in the most stunning of locations, overlooking Diamond Hill. The cottage had everything we could need, in addition to some very thoughtful little touches. And to top it all off, it welcomes our four-legged friends. Will definitely book again next time I’m visiting. Thank you for the hospitality.
We were very happy in a very comfortable house in a good location, ten minutes from Clifden. We will be back again.
Lovely apartment with very helpful owners and a cute dog. Very modern and clean. The bathroom in the main bedroom was a little strange other than that it was perfect.
Once again a great stay ....home warm clean and comfortable with friendly neighbours. Weather was variable but was extremely agreeable. Panoramic views and a prefect centre for all the hikes we did ..this has become our place to escape to from the rat race ...
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.
Very relaxing break in a spacious house with some of the best views in the land. Would highly recommend. We were able to travel to other places nearby for day trips and even the village was a nice spot for some food or a few pints. Nice beaches were close by and also was able to get a bit of fishing in from the rocks and the pier. The owner was very helpful. Being able to collect your eggs each morning from the chickens was a nice touch for my young children
Everything was good about this property except no instructions on how to work dish washer, heating etc. Also house difficult to recognise from the photo.
Beautiful location, stunning views, gorgeous cottage, well kitted out, quick responses to questions, Siobhan at Cc really helpful.
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 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
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
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 had a wonderful week at the cottage..Moira was so welcoming & lovely..This is truly a special hideaway in beautiful Nature..So quiet but just a 2 min drive or 10 min walk to the most spectacular beaches in Ireland..Wild, Stunning Connemara's Atlantic & Mountainous weather patterns are constantly changing & the diffrrening shades of colour and light makes this such a sought after destination..The Majestic Mountains surround the cottage adding to the uniqueness of this little gem of find for lucky enough to stay here. Highly recommended
A lovey little cottage … rustic and cozy. Drive down to the pier, and enjoy the peace and quiet. A great getaway location (no interruptions from internet). An old guy stopped by… he had lived in the cottage in the 1970s, and wanted to see how time had treated his first home. A cozy getaway place for one or two people, and Aisling was a great help with booking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at the cottage in Cashel. It was surrounded by magnificent scenery and Mrs Flagherty, the Housekeeper, was wonderfully helpful. We would certainly go there again. Our only issue was not very powerful shower and bath towels were too small.
We didn’t realise how beautiful this location was. Kylemore Abbey and Killary Fjord so close, while the National park is walking distance. Restaurants and pubs walking distance. Nearby beaches stunning. House is great location and enough room for family of 5 plus dog. Highly recommend. If there is something that could do with attention, it’s master bed, not comfortable. Floorboards upstairs need fixing…. Very creeky, and fencing outside, it was falling down in parts and the dog had to be watched as a result. Other than that, for location, we would definitely go back. Location just so ...more
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
Excellent location.Cosy, atmospheric,well equipped cottage.The open fire was very welcome during the colder evenings. Dogs / Gurteen Bay super for swimming and walking over the headland.
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
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
On arrival at the property we discovered the agent was not expecting us so the house key was not there and after several phone calls we eventually got in when the house keeper arrived. The house had not been cleaned and no beds made up. The fridge was dirty and no loo paper or kitchen paper etc supplied. The agent did give us a refund in fairness but 1st impressions are so important. Also we had no TV or microwave available
We had a lovely stay in the house but it’s not five star although we paid a five star price for it. Found the owner very helpful all week especially when we arrived to a very leaking tap and subsequent flooding of the kitchen floor, plumber removed on the Monday morning , only wondering why this wasn’t noticed or sorted before our arrival. A lot of things were malfunctioning in the house but I gave up ringing her as I could have rang her every day wondering why different things weren’t working. beds were very uncomfortable bar one, I think mattresses are very out of date on some of the beds. ...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.
