Outstanding cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to explore Connemara and want a base that is welcoming and very comfortable this property will not disappoint. The cottage is located in an area of fantastic scenery and has views of the Wild Atlantic Way and spectacular mountains. The property is finished to a high specification and all visitor needs have been considered with well thought out information on the property and the local/wider area. The cottage is well equipped for a family, the decor is of a very high standard and it is immaculately clean.

Mike the owner and Eileen who takes care of the property were really friendly and helpful.

We have already recommended to family and friends and would definitely book again.

A perfect stay in a truly beautiful part of Ireland!

What an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week we had! The cottage was faultless, we had seven people staying and because it is so spacious we still felt we had plenty of room. The views are beautiful from every window; mountains and the sea. The area is lovely, we made use of the two bikes provided to explore the area. There is plenty to do and beautiful places to visit just a short drive from the cottage and the local area was great to eat out, the boat inn at Oughterard serves great food as does O'Dowds in Roundstone. We visited the local lead and silver mine which was good fun and had a lovely walk around the white beaches of Dogs Bay.

Also the ferry to the Aran Islands is only 30 -40 minutes away which is definitely worth a visit! We all had a fantastic stay and would love to go back. Thank you Mike it was great!

prepare to be blown away

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the site don't do justice to this beautifully kept house. Every room has an amazing aspect out to the Wild Atlantic Way. if you want to experience peace, tranquility, and stay in a spiritual place then this is for you. The house is remote but that's the beauty of it. Everything in the house from the beds, linen, towels and kitchen equipment is of the highest quality. I stayed here for a week with my two teenage sons and it was just magical. There a lots of DVD's to watch when the weather turns to keep you entertained. The location of the house allows you to explore Connemara, galway and Mayo comfortably. There is lots to see and do and being in the Gaeltacht is charming. We ate out in Kilkeiran, Galway and Cong and the food was amazing especially the seafood chowder and mussels. Dealing with Mike was a pleasure and he was always on hand as was Eileen. I would have no reservations in recommending this beautiful place

Wonderful house, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect 'get away from it all' house in a beautiful location. The house is very comfortable, warm and well-equipped. The views of the sea and mountains are just beautiful.

There is plenty of information about the local area on things to do and visit, and the house is well stocked with games, puzzles, books and dvds, should the need arise. There is also a good wifi connection.

The location is fairly remote and we were made well aware of this prior to booking by the owner, Mike. Thankfully this didn't put us off. We were on holiday for 2 weeks with our two sons (aged 13 and 9) and they loved the house and location also, enjoying the freedom of walking or cycling around the peninsula. The owner Mike and housekeeper Eileen were very welcoming and were available at all times to answer any questions.

We would thoroughly recommend this house as a base of touring Connemara and the extended region, and also as a place to just 'get away from it all'. If we were to return to Connemara, we wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Perfect Place for Peace, Relax and Explore

  • 5 of 5

We made a round trip in Ireland with first a couple of days in the Southwest before staying a week in this beautiful cottage in Connemara. Apart from its perfect location with great views the house is very comfortable - big rooms, top kitchen, warm and big lounge with top entertainment as well as fast internet connection which was important to us. The owner Mike was very helpful before, during and after our stay. Mike stated that in advance that his cottage is remote but we used it also as base to explore Connemara - and also Mayo up to Donegal. At this time of the year and with all the sunshine we had absolutely no problem to make the miles per car as road conditions are excellent. We had even enough time to do some longer trails such as Diamond Hill in Connemara NP or Croagh Patrick in Mayo.

To summarize if you look for a place to relax in luxury and/or to explore great sites in the Irish countryside this luxury cottage is the place to be.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Ireland to celebrate our Siver wedding anniversary and have a bit of a relaxing get away from it all break.

On arrival at the cottage we could not believe the surrondings and views.

The cottage was perfect and had an lovely homely feel, clean and well equipped to a extremely high standard. The under floor heating made it feel constantly warm and cosy.

Lot's in the area to visit and easily filled our days with lovely places to explore or just walking on the beach with the dog.

We were so impressed with the cottage, Micheal the owner and Eileen the housekeeper we have already booked for 2 weeks next year.

Before, during and after the visit communication with Micheal was fast and nothing was too much trouble for him,emails were answered in full with great details of the area supplied also.

We couldn't fault anything from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anybody.

Location

From the Owner

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

There are two pretty quays within walking distance; one just five minutes away and the other about twenty. There are several quiet sandy beaches within easy reach by car, the nearest being about half an hour away across the bay.

Travel:

The nearest airport is West of Ireland Airport at Knock, which is about a two hour drive away, much of it with stunning views of loughs and mountains. Otherwise the drive from Dublin Airport only takes about four hours, including a break.

The drive from Dublin Port or Dun Loughaire takes about four hours, including a break.

Distances:

All of Connemara's attractions are within an hour's drive, including: Galway for shopping restaurants and street performers, Clifden for multi-coloured shops, restaurants and bars with live Irish music, the pretty fishing village of Roundstone, the ferry to the Aran Isles, Kylemore Abbey and Walled Victorian Garden, Killary Fjord for boat trips, Lough Corrib for fishing, Connemara National Park, Connemara Heritage and History Centre, Glengowla Silver and Lead Mine, Brigit's Garden and much more.

Further Details:

There are three shops on the Rosmuc peninsula. You can get almost anything you may need from one of the shops, O'Malley's, which is also a Post Office.

There are also two local bars, but if you are looking for pubs with bar food and music, so that you can experience the Irish "Craic", you can find these in Clifden which is about forty-five minutes away by car.

Rosmuc is in the centre of an area known as the Gaeltacht where Irish is the first language. So when you are in Rosmuc you can expect people to be speaking in Irish. What it means is that you really are experiencing the real Ireland. But don't worry, they speak English too and are very friendly.

To eat out you will need to go a little further afield, but you can find excellent restaurants in Galway, Clifden, Roundstone and Oughterard. If you like to cook there is a fully-equipped kitchen at the cottage.

There are plenty of walks around Connemara and details of many of these are provided at the cottage. If you fancy a cycle around the Rosmuc peninsula there are two bikes in the outbuilding.
