Beautiful house with a homely feel. Directions to get there were perfect. Fire was lit when we came in the door. The house was clean and comfortable with lovely view.
Fantastic location! Clean, comfortable, very easy transaction! I am a second time renter. Highly recommend
Absolutely loved the cottage and grounds. Beautifully presented and very well equipped. Kettle and dvd didn't work but they were a small price to pay for the level of comfort everywhere in the cottage. Totally fell in love with the cottage, views and Connemara itself. Even a week later, me and my boyfriend still miss the place. Thank you for our stay x
I recently stayed here with my family and my sisters family having a break away. We were 4 adults and 3 teenagers. This house was such a pleasure to stay in, it was home from home, with all mod cons, very clean and cupboards well stocked with basic household requirements which made it easy to prepare a meal for hungry teenagers. We toured around the local area and enjoyed a lovely boat trip on the Corrib with a local operator "Corrib Cruises". Everything about this accommodation was a positive experience, the beds were really comfy, lots of hot water, lots of space. Would highly r...more
Well it was our first time in Connemara and first time in this lovely house. The owner is very nice and everything was perfect. Those two weeks were a real pleasure. Would be glad to come back.Very good place to relax. Very good service.
Every other year my brother and I, along with a couple of friends, travel to Ireland for a week of relaxation and good times. We used to do the B & B route, on the move every day but that proved to be tiresome and expensive so for the past several trips we've gone with the cottage experience. It's a simple plan, pick an area to explore, find a cottage for the week and let the good times roll. All in all we've never had a bad experience with any of our accommodations and this time was no exception, in fact it turned out to be the best cottage we've ever stayed in. It's newer, very well a...more
Great house. Clifden is really nearby. Great location to explore Connemara and the pubs in Clifden. We had a great time.
We were absolutely delighted with Apartment 290 - well located, extremely clean, modern furniture and well equipped (although it would be nice to have a mirror in the twin room) - it was everything we needed for our stay in Clifden. The assistance we received when there was a minor problem with the hot water was exceptionally fast and efficient. We will definitely be staying there again next year.
The Apartment was fabulous, we could not believe the magic of the place, stunning accommodation with everything you could need, and the Views were amazing from the Apartment, we really loved it all. All new contents and very comfortable apartment, loads of space and bright rooms with lots of windows, totally private and no noise. Beds are very very comfortable, the views from the en suite bedroom are stunning. The location was stunning, and the bonus of having a fabulous restaurant below us with beautiful food and fabulous staff was huge. All the people in Leenane are lovely, in the ...more
The O'Malley's cottage is magical. The most beautiful possible setting imaginable, overlooking the Cleggan harbor, and surrounded by heathered fields, this is a clean, comfortable, and luxurious house. Our caretaker Mary was so helpful. Our group of five adults used the cottage as a departure point for hiking and biking and it was great to return to such a pleasant and warm home at the end of the day. Cleggan is a sweet town with great restaurants and pubs; for fresh fish, seek out the local fisherman for same day catch (ask at the grocery store). Thank you for a great stay!
The best thing about this property is it’s location. Fantastic views while 5 mins drive from all amenities in clifden. It was great to have all rooms ensuite. The kitchen was well stocked and everything worked. The house had good heating and even electric blankets were supplied for my elderly parents . There could be a little more Storage space in the bedrooms and bathrooms but it is manageable. WiFi is poor but then you can’t expect more when in such a remote location
Beautiful location, great Cottage, kind owners direcly next door. All the things you must see in Conemara are max 45 - 50 minutes drive away. A really stunning place! Roundstone offers all you need, from petrol, little grocery store to pubs. Don't miss oysters and Guinnes at O'Dowd's.
We really appreciate the work that Barbara and Charlie put into the house. The house is beautiful and has tons of space. Barbara and Charlie are very nice and very accommodating. The town is awesome and the neighborhood surrounding the house is quiet and beautiful. Thank you Barbara and Charlie for a wonderful stay!
Everything was exactly as described on the website. Lovely host, lovely cottage with stunning views, great walks along the coasts, wonderful places around to visit. We really enjoyed our holiday! We had a wonderful relaxing time.
very nice house to visit Connemara with friends. We were 8 couples settled in this spacious and very clean house the first week of September. Discrete owners and available.
Excellent house in an amazing location with great facilities but the owner lives on the property which we were unaware of before arrival which we felt should have been highlighted in description
The house is perfect. What a pitty that it wasn’t clean... Owners very friendly. Wifi and tv were great but more important, kitchen missed some basic things.
Had a lovely relaxing stay at this beautiful cottage. Great location with short walk to soft sandy beach. Kids loved the horses and donkeys in the fields beside the cottage. Not a long drive to nearby Clifden - which is a lovely town. Great holiday had by all - highly recommend!
The house was rented for a group of visiting friends and it really exceeded my expectations. The location is unbelieveable and the size and condition of the house really more than we were expecting. The online pictures don't do it justice, everything was just fantastic.
I would certainly recommend this apt. Lovely view over harbour. Close to shop and pub. Very clean and comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is fantastic, right across the rd from the beach and a stone's throw from Ballyconneelly and other amazing beaches. Mary was really helpful and welcoming and even had the fire lit for us on arrival! The ESB rate was reasonable and the house had everything we needed for a family holiday. Would recommend
This was our third visit and we are already planning the next. Absolutely our favourite place to stay.
A great holiday house, perfect for our family of five. The homeowner Michelle was so friendly and the house was spotless and well very well equipped. We loved our days spent out on the beaches in roundstone and climbing mountains in the national park. The town of clifden also had lovely bars and restaurants.
Très joli cottage, situé face au fjord et à deux pas du village de Leenane. Point d'entrée nord du Connemara qui permet de nombreuses visites et balades. Petit point négatif : absence du sèche linge annoncé sur le site. Nous recommandons vivement cette location.
It was a very pleasent stay in the middle of clifden. Allthough the kitchen is to dark for preparing food. The Lightsourse is shining on your back.
Beautiful location, & perfect for touring Connemara & Mayo. No better way to enjoy breakfast than looking across at the 'Diamond' in Connemara National park.
Nice clean cottage, at first day we had some problem sto find it, but then it was great. Superb equipped house, beautiful location in the middle of a astonishing valley with a great Lake, ideal for trips around to Connemara
Super cosy and spotless accommodation with great kitchen and shower facilities. Neighbours so helpful and kind with insights to the island. We got a sense of the locals (Inishnee and Roundstone) living and appreciating a different pace of life and giving of their time graciously to answer our questions. Lovely walk around Inishnee island (1 hour at a gentle pace) with stunning views of the Twelve Pins mountains. We skipped the Wednesday music night in the Community Centre and, on hearing the reviews, regretted our decision! So that would be our tip to you.
Great location on the lakeshore, no neighbours, road traffic hardly noticeable. The buildings are remodeled with much care for detail and style, so it is enjoyable to spend time indoors - which is what you sometimes want to do given the Irish weather. Just wonderful to sit in the kitchen with a good book and watch the scenery outside through the large glass front - be it a calm sunrise or an autumn storm. And Connemara is a very scenic part of the country so there is much to explore in the close vicinity (try afternoon tea in Ballynahinch castle!).
We had a very nice holiday. The view is amazing! The house is really nice and big. We had everything we needed, it was really well equiped. The owners were very friendly and always helpful. They even had some tips for exploring the area.
Our stay in this apartement was wery friendly and beautiful. Thanks for the nice time! Sven, Ilka and Friederike from Germany
Lovely place to stay , second year in a row staying there , Lorna is lovely ,might see you again next year
The house is in a lovely spot and has a warm character. It is very quiet and private. You have a great view and the ocean is only 10 min. walk through the field. John is a great host. Who gave us lots of tips for trips. We would love to come again.
great apartment lovely views and location real home from home good facilities very central good beds would def use again
Really lovely place to stay. Roundstone is gorgeous and this house makes the experience 100% better!
We had a very nice few days at the cottage. The scenery is fantastic and had a wonderful evening in the pub over the road, listening to music, poetry and song.
A Stone cottage ....no heat on ...freezing ! Turned heat on for 5 hrs still freezing . Poor bed linen quality We left cottage at 8.30 pm having secured hotel Stunning scenery ...might be aye in summer
We have appreciated all many our stay. The sea view, small fishing port, lobsters and products of the sea, the beauty of the landscape, peaceful life, and the small dogs scroungers, who made the beautiful .. and of course inescapable sheeps in the middle of the peat and the flowery roads .. We like Conemara .. and Ireland generally It has been 2 years since we go there .
This was the third time we stayed in this house. We love it as it is an ideal location for a range of outdoor activities and we love being so close to the beach. The house was mostly warm though one of the rooms took a while to warm up. We hope to stay in the house again. We do feel however that the electricity charges are excessive. For the cost of the week , electricity should be included
Notre séjour dans ce charmant cottage était parfait. Tranquillité, confort, et très bien situé, à mi-chemin entre Galway et Cliffden. La propriétaire nous a réservé un très bon accueil.
Attractive and spacious house in a scenic setting. Close to some very good beaches. Close to shop and pub.
we have stayed here many times before,to attend the Connemara pony festival.Ideal location for us and we have made many friends in the area.
The house presents itself as a lovely cottage with enough space and excellent location for trips around Connemara. Both bedrooms and the living room with fire place have a nice view across the Atlantic. The owner welcomed us warmly and provided support and help throughout our stay.
Put away your worries and your techno stuff and stay still in this magical place. It’s not luxurious but it cannot be beaten for views and tranquility. Watch the oyster catchers, the herons, gulls, seal, fish and occasional passing traffic - boats on Ballinakill harbour from the front garden. You’re own beach at low tide. Watch the light show on the mountains - the canvas ever changing with the weather especially at sunset! And it does rain so be prepared- bring waterproofs. I keep going back!
We had a few problems with the cottage but these were dealt with promptly and we spent a lovely week exploring the area. We were a group of three couples and particularly wanted a bathroom each so we were disappointed to find,on arrival, that one of the baths was not able to be used because of a leak. I think this should have been highlighted to us beforehand - it sounded as if it had been out of action for a while. Despite that, we all enjoyed ourselves and were delighted with the local facilities and impressed by the standard of the local shops,pubs and restaurants. Everyone we met was ver...more
We had a lovely stay at this house, the owner was extremely pleasant and obliging. House was comfortable and warm with great views and location being in the town facing out over the harbour.
Perfect house for a family holiday. Right in the middle of the village. Close to pubs,food,shops, entrance to national park. Big house, loads of space ideal with kids.
A little of the booklet information needed updating/Clarified a bit more and we couldn't find a key to the garage where the bikes were.In the end we had a phone number to chase this if required but it wasn't a big enough issue to do this. It was nice to meet the lady who looks after the property and we had a lovely holiday.The situation is great.
A comfortable stay in an unforgettable location. Lough Fee is as remote as it gets in Connemara and provides easy access to both the Twelve Bens and Maumturks mountains. Glassilaun is a very short drive away - a very atmospheric beach!
The flat was well catered for and fantastically located but it just needed an extremely good deep clean. Everything else perfect :-)
Beautiful location. The cottage was pristine and had everything you would need for a lovely stay. We really enjoyed ourselves and will defeniatley be back.
Although functional and comfortable, the property and gardens could do with a bit of TLC to make it a very good holiday cottage
Fantastic location overlooking Killary Harbour but accommodation suffered from an annex and inadequate heating system.
The cottage has a very nice furnishing and we liked the surroundings very much. A small map on the directions would have been helpful (e.g. screenshot of Google maps). Thank you very much for the nice stay . :)
