Magnifique maison

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison est idéalement placée au sein du Connemara, toute proche du parc national du Connemara, de la côte, de Clifden qui est la ville incontournable dans les environs. La maison est spacieuse, très bien conçue, propre et possède tout le nécessaire à de merveilleuses vacances. Le propriétaire M. O'TOOLE, ainsi que Mary la personne qui vous accueille sont très sympathiques et serviables.

Il ne faut pas chercher plus loin, cette maison est une référence absolue.

Location très recommandable

  • 5 of 5

Pour la cinquième fois, nous venons de passer 2 semaines dans le Connemara. La magie est toujours là. Paysages magnifiques, irlandais très accueillants, zénitude assurée.

La villa de Tom est parfaite : propreté irréprochable, grands espaces, luminosité totale, équipements complets. De plus, Tom est toujours disponible pour répondre aux questions que vous pouvez vous poser.

Alors n'hésitez plus ! Réservez cette villa les yeux fermés et ouvrez les grands pour savourer cette région impressionnante.

Hesitate no more...

  • 5 of 5

It's got everything you're looking for in Connemara. It's also an excellent base to visit the area. It was a very quiet and nice place to rest in after long days out.

The description is accurate. The house was clean, comfortable, well equipped and lovely. We received plenty of information and recommendations by mail and we had a nice welcome. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend.

All my family keeps excellent memories of our summer holiday in Connemara.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house to stay in Connemara, we saw quite a few which we liked, but after having seeing Tom’s house we instantly knew: this is the one we would like to stay in!

After having contacted Tom by mail to make sure that the house is available, I had a very nice phone conversation with him, he explained everything to me and answered my questions in a very open way.

When we arrived, Mary was already waiting, explained everything to us and she was very helpful during our stay when we had questions. Tom’s house was exactly in the advertised state, very clean, which is in our opinion one of the most important points, very spacious, very well equipped. Once in a while a car passes the house, otherwise the area is very quite. We very much liked the view onto the near lake and the colourful mountains of Connemara.

Tom’s house is an ideal staring point for exploring the Galway area. There is so much to see!

Thank you, Tom and Mary, we had a wonderful stay and we would definitely like to stay here again and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation!

Moyard is a rural town-land situated 5 miles from Clifden, the capital of Connemara, and 3 miles from Letterfrack village and Connemara National Park and 5 miles from Kylemore Abbey on the N59. Many visitors find Moyard a central point from which to tour and enjoy Connemara. Moyard is also 5 miles from Cleggan village and the gateway to Inishbofin Island. The scenery in North West Connemara is a breathtaking and ever-changing landscape of majestic mountains, spectacular beaches, prehistoric bogs and mist covered lakes. Moyard is at the heart of this scenery and within these acres of scenery there is a choice of activities, places to visits, shops, modern conveniences, restaurants and lively pubs. Sandy beaches, mountains, walks, horse riding. Our house overlooks a lake and is situated on a quiet road with stunning views over Garrenbaun lake and still not far away from all the amenities.

Golf: Connemara Golf course is under a half hour drive from the house and it is a 26 hole links course situation beside beautiful white beaches perfect for walking. The club house with restaurant/bar on the top floor is the perfect place to meet up after a round of golf.

The latest visitor attraction in the area is the Wild Atlantic Way - http://www.failteireland.ie/wildatlanticway - a great name to describe our rugged coastline and its beauty.
