It all ways helps when you have good weather..

A lovely house in a stunning location.. The house came with everything we needed except a dryer, very well equipped and nice touchs like hand soap, washing up liquid etc. 6 adults and 7 kids stayed here very comfortably for a week. We will definitely return some day soon

The views from this property are outstanding.. Kathleen welcomed us warmly and the house was very well equipped. Essentials such as toilet paper and washing up liquid were provided which makes staying away from home that bit easier. The kids had a great time and there was plenty of space for us to enjoy without getting under each other’s feet (there were only 11 of us) The house was lovely and warm and the beds comfortable. It’s a good 20 mins to the nearest shop by car, but we knew this because of the detail in the property description, so we made sure we stopped off on our way to the property.

We really enjoyed our stay at Glassillaun Beach House.. It was our second year in a row to holiday there so we think that speaks for itself. We already knew all about the house and how clean and comfortable it was. Kathleen, the owner, lived next door and was very welcoming and friendly. A great house and a great holiday.

The owner Kathleen went out of her way to makes us all feel welcome and at home from the start.. The house is in a wonderful location which made the whole week very special.

So close to beach we could sit out on the decking and let the kids go to the beach.. We could see them all the time.almost a private beach with only half a dozen others walking about. Scenery is gorgeous with mountains and a sea view from all rooms. Killary ffyord boat trip is a must as is the sea food chowder once on board. We were a party of 6 adults and 6 kids ( aged 3 - 10 ) . All 12 came home after thoroughly enjoying a great week.

From the minute we arrived, we were impressed with the house and location.. Kathleen had everything ready and cosy for us in late October 2018. We were very lucky with the weather and got to the beach almost every day and to be fair, we would have no excuse not to, it's right there on the doorstep. Smashing house, very warm in winter weather, lovely rooms, all en-suite and the water was always boiling every day. Couldn't ask for more. Make your own of the location. Loads to do in the area and Paddy Coynes bar and restaurant is a must. The Killary Fjord tour is a really nice trip and well worth the costs. Overall, a prime location for a peaceful holiday and our teenagers even went scuba diving next door ...

The place was wonderful The house very convenient and clean We enjoyed our week there

We couldn't have asked for more.. ..... 14 people in the house (7 kids) and there was plenty of space. Rooms were well sound proofed and all ensuite which was brilliant. Hosts do live in the attached building but this is not noticeable at all. Stunning Beach was on the doorstep and is very safe, clean and even though we were in the middle of the heat wave, we had the beach to ourselves. At low tide there are Islands to walk out to and rock pools to fish in. I can't recommend the area, house and holiday enough. We live in Ireland and holiday here for one week every summer.... This has been this best yet after 12 years of family holidays in Ireland. There’s so much to do in the area. Loved Killary Fjord (Take the boat trip...), Letterfrack, Tully Cross, Omey Island is also a must but watch the tides...!!! Food is most places was simply beautiful. We walked to the local shop / Cafe each morning (Kings) which was brilliant also. Great food and the owner is most welcoming. Roads are quite to walk and the scenery is stunning. Wish I was back there.

Glassillaun Beach is AMAZING! !! My family and I can't say enough about this place. We loved it! The location of the house is excellent and the house itself is clean, cute, well appointed and spacious. We used the house as a base camp and did day trips around County Galway and County Mayo, worked out perfect. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners and they were very friendly and welcoming. I would book this house again and again! Best vacation we've ever had!!!

A brilliant location next to the beach, a beautiful bay and sound of the waves.. If you need to get away from it all and totally relax this is the ideal place to come.
