There is everything to recommend for this holiday house.. It is in a quiet location, with lovely views, just 5 minutes walk from Roundstone, so very convenient for the local food and craft shops, with no shortage of places to eat out. In the good weather, Roundstone felt cosmopolitan, one could eat outside, all close to the harbour, with amazing views to the mountains of Connemara, and happy people, many young and on bicycles, touring the beautiful coastline. The sandy beaches of Gurteen Beach and Dog's Bay just a few minutes drive away with white sand and sheltered aspect are heavenly. It is also an ideal place for touring further up and around the coast, where there are more wonderful, magical sandy bays, and back through the mountains. And what a lovely house to come back to. Freshly caught fish, and a home baked apple pie arrived by magic in our kitchen, Carole was kindness itself, living unobtrusively next door. The place was spotless, and well equipped, with much pine furniture, and light rooms. A perfect relaxing holiday, my husband and I are both water colour painters, and the sitting room was light enough and large enough for us both to paint. When I left my walking boots behind, Carole posted them to me straight away with only friendly words to say about my forgetfulness!! The house felt loved and we felt very at home and cared for beautifully. Thank you Carole!! We will do our very best to return.
