We had a fantastic time at this house, homely and clean. We were very impressed with the size and comfort, not to mention the location. We would definitely recommend this for families or couples.

Warm Modern Clean Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bedrock during July14. The house is superbly equipped and very clean – we had an infant with us so this was paramount – we has no worries at all in this house. A real comfy yet modern building that is laid out with great thought and attention to detail. The table tennis room is good when weather turns wet. Unlike a lot of houses in area (of which we have stayed in many over the years) this house really feels like a nice holiday home - and not an overused/rented investment property. Really looking forward to getting back to Aughrusbeg next year – we will be booking this house/home again. A great spot in a wonderful part of the world.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with a very comfortable feel, plenty of space and all you need provided. The location is beautiful and peaceful with great sea views and is just a short walk to some small sandy beaches. There is a well-stocked shop in Claddaghduff and plenty of life in Clifden. The owner was very helpful and easy to deal with - we would love to visit again.

Gorgeous cosy and modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern house with a real cottage feel to it, really nicely finished and furnished, it has a very homely feel to it. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. I'd highly recommend it whether it's for a family summer break or a place to hide away and watch the wild Atlantic winter storms outside.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Booked this rental for a family re union. Property was in immaculate condition. As it said in the property description, you could not ask for anything more. beautiful location and easy to find. nice enclosed land with gate for security especially with the grandchildren playing out front. If you would like a place to forget your woes, meet friendly people, stunning area including clifden, rent this property. You will not regret it.
