This holiday home must rank among the best in Connemara. One counterargument: we wanted to stay longer but couldn't :-)
This house will accommodate six in comfort, but there were only two of us there for our stay. Kitchen is spacious and well-equipped with new appliances. There is a very effective pumped shower off the main bedroom, although the upstairs shower is not as effective. The house is one of the first as you enter the island, but it's still a fair distance from Bearna with it's shops and pubs. There are beautiful beaches on the island, but it's about 1.5 - 2km to each, so I'd recommend bringing bicycles if possible.
20 of us stayed at SUNNYBANK for a week to celebrate our Golden Wedding with an age range of 2 to 82. The house and surrounging area met with all our needs. The house provided excellent accommodation and amenities with plenty of room to accommodate our party. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would not hesitate to recommend SUNNYBANK to friends and family as a superb venue for a holiday or any celebration. Shane was most courteous and very helpful during our stay. Just wonderful!
A beautiful cottage, well maintained and spotlessly clean, with stunning views all around. A peaceful location, but not too far from Clifden for dining out and shopping. The owner kindly took the time to ensure we had settled in. A very cosy cottage, and would definitely return!
The accommodation was excellent , very central to all amenities in Clifden and a great location to visit many areas within Connemara
This is a wonderful house …...plenty of outside space for children 3yrs and above to run around in. it is vey clean and spacious. the only drawback …..there is no washer/dryer...….which with children in Connemara is a necessity i think.
Ideal location, everything you need available in the townhouse! Most comfortable beds ever!! Best self catering we have stayed in yet!
Excellent house and good location to base yourself in. Very clean house which allowed us to relax. No concerns around hygiene. Will need a car but is a short drive to Clifden and Ballyconneely and Roundstone not too much further. Host was friendly and there were no issues on arrival or departure - in fact went out of his way to return items to use that we left behind. Would recommend particularly for family
All great - everything you need in a base ...in a beautiful location. Is this up to 100 characters now ?
A fantastic 10 day stay in an excellent location in Clifden, close to town with parking. The Art House really is an excellent property. Extremely clean, plenty of space, well furnished & homely with all the amenities you need- plus extras; including car parking, netflix, a games room, fab garden space & nespresso machine! This was our second time back to stay & really highly recommend it... we’ll definitely be back again :-)
Great if you're looking for peace and gorgeous landscapes. The house is cosy and set apart from civilization (but 45-minute drive to many beautiful places) The host, who lives only two houses away, is very welcoming and nice. We'll definitely stay there again if we can.
Gorgeous renovated cottage with excellent self catering facilities...super kitchen to coik in. Loved our daily walks down to the beach, gorgeous wild location. We booked for a week and ended uo staying an extra 2 nights. There is a washer dryer which is essential if staying for longerbthan a weekend, the inly thing missing was a clothes line to dry wet clothes, towels and togs. Maybe an idea to implement?
A great house,lots of room for a large group.The views are out of this world and change by the hour.Great having 3 living rooms.Beds are so comfortable.Well stocked kitchen,plenty of crockery.lots of hot water.Almost an hour walk on a narrow busy road to Clifden so car required.
Great place to stay in Connemara. Stunning location. Close to all the best sights. A fantastic experience fo all.
Fantastic hosts, extremely helpful, games room was a treat for the older children. BBQ area is a great size and really comfortable for a large group. Younger kids loved the roaming peacock and cockerel, the ponies and the lovely little Pomeranian lady. I would highly recommend this lovely property for any group.
I loved my holiday in Clifden Court it was so modern and clean and had everything you could possibly need. Only problem was I only had a week...
We stayed in 4 Clifden Quay for the second year in a row and again it didn't disappoint! This house is clean, bright, airy and spacious. The location is brilliant and the house is equipped with everything you might need. We are all particularly taken with the bean bags and the balconies! Can't recommend Clifden and Clifden Quay enough, would quite happily live in this house if I had a chance! Thanks to the team in Connemara Lettings for another great stay.
Fabulous stay location was amazing beautiful white Sand beach and crystal clear water ! Highly recommend amazing stay thank You !
Amazing house in spectacular setting . Highly recommend. Everything we needed was provided. Very nice for big group as plenty of privacy
Nous garderons un bon souvenir de notre court séjour à CLIFDEN et dans le Connemara. Un hébergement très correct et des propriétaires très sympathiques .
A fantastic comfortable house with all mod cons in a perfect location and an ideal base for exploring Connemara and the Wild Atlantic Way.
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.
Superb, comfortable and warm house in a beautiful setting and with a very large garden. Large rooms with very high-ceiling. The bedrooms are very large, bright and with superb views. Great supply of hot water with two bathrooms and a big shower room. Kitchen very bright and well equipped, The house was extremely clean and there are some impressive piece of furniture. The host was extremely welcoming and helpful. It was a pleasure getting to know the host, hear about the house and special to be their guests. We loved it and we had a wonderful week.
We had a lovely time in a luxurious house situated beside shops, pubs and restaurants. Would have no problem recommending this place to anyone.
Would make use of this facility again and the host was very accommodating. The facility was clean and well equipped for the duration of the stay.
The house is beautifully appointed - it’s warm, comfortable and has everything you need. The host lives next door and was very accommodating. The setting of the house cannot be improved upon - with incredible views of Killary fjord and surrounding mountains and a short walk into Leenaun itself. A wonderful place to stay.
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!
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
For the week we stayed in Killary Vista, we absolutely loved our stay. The location was perfect, to wake up and see the ocean out our window was stunning. Our 4 children loved it and felt very comfortable in the house. Olive is the perfect host and is so nice.
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.
A wonderful holiday in a great location. The apartment is ideal for 4 to 5 people if the weather is bad. Customer Service and responsiveness of landlord was exemplary.
Had an excellent week staying at No 6 Glynsk Cottage. Key pickup was very easy & owner very helpful in showing how heating worked etc. It was great to find a cottage where I could bring my little dog and have an enclosed garden she could run around in. Some lovely, empty wild beaches around this area, perfect for dog-walking too. I was really pleasantly surprised how good the broadband connection was in such a remote location - I was able to combine a holiday with a couple of days 'remote' working and the connection was superfast throughout, even for video conference calls. Also good to know t...more
Baybridge House was perfect for our holiday in Connemara. Excellent location. Magnificent views. Comfortable beds. We will definitely 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
The recent stay at Helen's Hideaway in the town of Clifden was a good time. The self-catering apartment was delightful and the setting accommodating. The peaceful location and privacy superb. The apartment could not be better situated for the easy access into town, to the shops, banking facilities, and church for example. The changing tides and scenic views daily were a great treasure indeed, alongside nature at one's own doorstep. Mrs Ferguson's hospitality much appreciated and her kind approach gave a super welcome to a lovely stay at the cosy hideaway, that is, a place to be recommende...more
Nice house - unfortunately games room and bbq out of action due to COVID. Location fantastic - very rural but only 5 mns from clifden. Everything you need for a good holiday was there and Martin was very helpful If we needed anything
I know the area very well and have rented houses for many many years but none have been as comfortable as this home. There was lots of space for the grandchildren to play with their toys and for adults to sit in comfort and not have to tidy up all the time! They view from the house is lovely and adds to the sense of place and relaxation from this house. It’s a great adults house as 3 of the bedrooms are en-suite.... the other has use of the family bathroom.........the cost can then be shared making it more affordable. But it comes into its own when grandparents stay with children and grandkids...more
Hill House was better than expected. The house was equipped with everything we needed (and more). Location was excellent - a short stroll to the town centre which had a great selection of restaurants. Clifden was a fabulous base for exploring Connemara. We would definitely recommend Hill House and hope to return again some time.
Lovely spacious clean house with an amazing view of the sea and resident seals. Mary's welcome was very friendly, informative whilst being mindful of Covid restrictions. The living area was comfortable with plenty of room for two families. The kitchen was well stocked and user friendly. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds. Evenings were spent on the veranda overlooking the garden, enjoying a BBQ with a Gin and Tonic. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to others.
Having just returned home after spending a wonderful week in Jackies Cottage We had extended family of six adults and three children the house is spacious with plenty of room and lovely views.I would highly recommend Jackies Cottage for a really peaceful and relaxing holiday Patrick OLeary
Our second time in this apartment and it was perfect , everything we needed to make a comfortable stay . We hope to be back soon x
Stayed in coral strand for six nights . Absolutely a beautiful house and the area was great For a base to explore Connemara . Brendan the owner was nice. Would stay here again .
This property is in an Ideal location, it is safe , has all the required amenities and is only a short walk to the beach. Property is well equipped, clean, comfortable and functional. Hostess is extremely friendly, warm and helpful.
We had a fantastic stay in Ballinakill Lodge. I would definitely stay there again. It was spotless and we had all the facilities we needed. The Landlord is a phone call away if you need anything. In a great location. 10 minutes drive from Clifden. 15 minutes from Kylemore Abbey and Connemara National Park. Glassilaun Beach and Dogs Bay are beautiful. Just bring a picnic as no shops or facilities there. Also did a trip to the aran Islands from Rossaveel. Wish I was still there.
The house was spotless, which was very re-assuring during Covid. Great location, very close to the town centre but it still felt very peaceful and quiet. With greenery all around we felt like we were in the country but it was only a 2 minute walk to the main street. Could have done with more pots etc in the kitchen as we ended up cooking in more than we normally would, but otherwise it was perfect.
We had a fantastic time in Waterside cottage. We rent a holiday home each year and this was really excellent. Brid was brilliant, really helpful and the house was really well prepared for our visit. Swimming of the pier each day was a real highlight.
2 families stayed 7 nights. Beautiful peoperty with everything you could need. The propieter was very helpful when needed but be honest everything is at hand. excellent location 10 minutes walk to the village which is delightful. Only a 15 min drive to Clifden if you need other provisions. Highly recommended.
Really enjoyed our stay! Beautiful place, amazing views from the wonderful window s. Very clean and modern. My relatives from nearby cottages called it the “posh” cottage.
Fantastic house, had everything you could possibly need with amazing views from every room. Really enjoyed our stay.
Well equipped holiday home, spectacular setting, within walking distance of friendly pub. Close to Cleggan and Clifden, and on wild Atlantic way. Great sandy beaches close by. Good for all outdoor activities. Highly recommended.
Just home from Lucy's house in Connemara and we couldn't have had a better time. Lucy was SO accommodating and the house was perfect for our large family group. Beautiful secluded beach a few minutes walk away and a lovely fire pit to sit around in the evening (bring bug spray !) We all brought bikes and the best of Connemara is within easy reach.
Great location, excellent accommodation, very spacious home, very welcoming landlady. We would highly recommend Molly's Cottage.
If you want a central location, with free parking, then this is reasonable choice. However, the apartment was a bit grubby, and tired in most aspects. Little character, and in need of a refresh. Beds uncomfortable, bedding old & stained. Directions to place were poor. Contact with agent was excellent, we had issue with washing machine that was resolved very quickly. Would be a reasonable place with some care.
We really enjoyed our short stay here! Very well equipped and comfortable home just outside the village of Ballyconneely and close to lots of beautiful beaches. Wish we could have stayed longer!!
Great house, very comfortable, very well equipped. Spacious: lots of room for 6 adults and 2 toddlers in our party.
Our family had a lovely time - beautiful location and Veronica was incredibly helpful with anything we needed!
We had such a lovely stay here that we decided to extend it. It's a very comfortable home from home and so close to the sea. John, the owner, is a gentleman and very accommodating. We'll definitely be back!
We booked last minute and were very happy with Kings Apartment. Central to everything and pet friendly, well equipped and comfortable. Good place to stay .
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.
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
Perfect location for a stay cation family holiday. Close to the gorgeous town of Clifden and some fabulous beaches. Perfect house for families as it has a football pitch, crazy golf, playground and tennis courts on site. Pity that the club house (with bar) was closed but this could be because of the Covid crisis.
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
Stayed here for 7 nights and it was lovely. Great location to Clifden, place was clean, well maintained and fully equipped. Beds were comfy and towels were supplied. The only issue we have which is a personal one is that there were no curtains on the black window/doors out to the patio which made us feel a bit open at night time.
A group of friends recently stayed in the Old School House for 2 nights. We were more than impressed with our fabulous accommodation which sits overlooking the town of Clifden. Siobhan's attention to detail was second to none with sanitizing spray and cleaning materials in every room. The place was spotless on arrival which is very reassuring in the times that we are living in. It was less than a minutes walk to the town square where we sat out in the sunshine listening to live music. A really fantastic stay that was enjoyed by all!
Just returned from a wonderful week in Clifden thanks to Connemara Holiday Lettings. The apartment was like a home from home. The bed was really comfy and I couldn't fault the facilities at the property. It had everything you could think off for couples and families alike. Excellent location right in the heart of the town so ideal for travelling around the wild Atlantic way and all the sights. the beaches were lovely, blue water and golden soft sand. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning as we ran out of time to see everything we wanted to see.
A very comfortable cottage with everything we needed with a fantastic view/location. Plenty of homely touches. Good WiFi. Well stocked.
The views over the tidal bay is a one of a kind stunner The absolute quiet outdoors makes it a 5 stars stress killer. Spacious cottage but make sure to bring your own “starter pack” of goods (spices, dishwashing soap, tea, coffee, sugar, etc..) probably due to COVID 19 there is nothing apart from good quality hardware. Water pressure, heat, fireplace and other amenities are very pleasant. Internet is on the very very slow side, so streaming netflix with your own devices is dodgy, But great flat screen tv with plenty of hdmi ports. Did I mention the views ? They are an absolute show...more
We had a wonderful time in this generously spaced apartment. It’s wonderful location made the stay very pleasant.
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,
Beautiful house so close to the beach while h was like having your own private one, Brian the owner was great very nice and helpful. Had a great family holiday, enough room for everyone. Will be back again
Beautiful and spacious well equipped house. Plenty of cooking utensils and great range oven to use if you want to eat in but really good eating places close by in Letterfrack and Tully Cross. Amazing views from the house and good amount of parking. Just a ten minute walk into Letterfrack but may need a torch for coming back in the dark.
Cottage was fine, but there are a few issues. It’s small and there is no ventilation of en-suite toilet/shower. Beautiful location but there is no view from the cottage, so it’s a bit claustrophobic after a few days if the weather keeps you indoors. Water came in through door and cooker hood on a night of heavy rain. Main issue is that owner lives on site in an extension to the cottage, adjoined via a door not seen in the photographs. We discovered this only on arrival. So didn’t have the privacy we expected. If none of these things are issues, cottage is fine in a beautiful part of the world...more
