Self-Catering Reviews

Well pleased with our week self catering .. Only small issue to report was that we found it difficult to keep any heat in the house ,but maybe a factor to consider is that this was our first time to stay in a stone built cottage .Otherwise we found our experience most enjoyable,locals friendly and able to help even in the challenging circumstances we all have to live with. All things taken would give a positive opinion to any person considering a holiday in Cleggan , County Galway

Lovely house with superb view.. Very clean and excellently equipped. Probably the best equipped house I've stayed in. Very close to local pubs, shop and ferry. Some nice walks from the house and the beaches are lovely - would be great for swimming in warmer weather. Overwhelmingly positive feelings about the house and very glad I booked it but there were a couple of negatives. The house does get cold when the weather is not so warm and doesn't seem to retain its heat too well even though the walls are very thick. The gas heating is good but could be expensive if left on for long periods (there are plenty of warnings about this in the information folder in the house). We turned off most of the radiators and heated only 3 rooms in the evening and on a couple of chilly mornings so we weren't shocked by the cost of gas and electricity at the end of the holiday. There was no information about where we could park though a word with the caretaker sorted this out - it would have been good to have this information before we got there or even in the information folder in the house. There was also no information about where the bins were situated so we just used the ones beside the adjacent houses. Fish and chips from the take away were a bit pricey considering the chips were from a packet and were not hand cut (a bit disappointing).

This place exceeded our expectations! The views from the living diner and double bedrooms are breathtaking. There are plenty of things to see and do nearby as long as you have a car. Only issue is that we were charged €45 euros for gas and electric and the end of our 3 day stay which is over half our monthly bill at home.

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at King’s Cottage.. The cottage was roomy with fireplace and a stunning view out the bedroom and kitchen/dining area windows of deep blue water and green hills. The village was small and we enjoyed walking to the grocery store and pubs as well as on paths through the village homes near the sea. Johnny King was very helpful especially when we had no heat on our first day. He shared many stories with us and also shared some of his fresh caught crab as well. He also pointed out a dolmen directly across the water from us and provided other information about the area. Our time there was perfect. A. If thank you to the King Family.

Fabulous location for sight seeing around connemera.. It's unique selling point was altlantic ocean was practically in back garden. Never got tired of changing views from bed room. Couple of pubs in walking distance which meant car could be parked up in the evening with good food available. Cottage had everything to make it feel like home from home. Intend to return.

King Cottage is exactly as described.. Everything is provided to make sure you have a great holiday. There was lovely brown soda bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee. Fully equipped kitchen. Central heating. Everywhere spotless. Plenty of towels and blankets. Would highly recommend this property. We travelled to Inishboffin on the ferry which is 2 minutes walk away. We walked the West loop which was really amazing. We went to Letterfrack, Connemara National Park where we did the Bog Road walk. This is a very easy walk just 3 km. Breathtaking views. Clifden is a lovely town to visit. Connemara is stunning. I am sorry it has taken so long to visit but I will be back. Olivers pub is great for food, drink and Craic.

We had a fantastic time staying at King Cottage in Cleggan.. What a beautiful cottage in an amazing location. The cottage was warm and cozy and had all the amenities that we needed. On the first day we awoke to a beautiful view of the sea as well as pod after pod of dolphins splashing around! We then saw a Heron, Cormorants, Great Northern Divers and a Seal! Amazing. The local area is beautiful. We holidayed in the winter which is clearly completely different than the summer. The locals were friendly and we had a lovely evening of Irish Rugby in the Pier Bar. We can not reccomend this cottage enough. Thankyou for a lovely stay.

Cottage was very nice, good location and well equipped with the exception of not having wi-fi which in today's world is a must.. Parking was not clear and the owner, who was fortunately visiting a relative, had to advise me. Also it was not clear where to dispose of rubbish. More detailed info in the cottage would help. Thanks

This cottage is remote and wonderful, it is for people who appreciate the sea and country Ireland. The owners make you welcome and if you talk with the local people they have wonderful tales to tell.

This cottage was in a superb setting, it was an ideal place for relaxing or getting out and about. It suited us down to the ground, we needed to get away from it all and chill out. The owners and caretakers were very friendly and helpful. The cottage was warm and comfortable, with all the amenities we needed. We intend to return in the future!

My sister and I decided to fulfill our Mom's dream and take her to Ireland. She wanted a taste of the old Ireland and to meet the Irish people. And Cleggan delivered big time. King Cottage was exactly as the ad described it. The fireplace and the view from the patio doors was so relaxing. The sound of the ocean and watching boats leave and enter the harbour took her back to her youth in Newfoundland. Even though Cleggan is a small town it is a busy little hub because it is a ferry point for the island of Inishbofin. It has four friendly pubs and you can get wifi at Olivers. Try the Fish and Chips Takeaway and Restaurant if you want fish and chips.. It beats either restaurant. Chips are very white in Ireland but you can always ask to have them browned. We never met the owner of Kings Cottage but his brother John King and wife Theresa were amazing hosts. From fresh fish delivered to a longliner ride we were made to feel very at home. There were any number of day trips from Cleggan. We took the bus to Galway for the day. Clifden is only 11 km away and is a wonderful place to eat and shop. I get homesick when I look at the pictures. I highly recommend this area of Ireland and King Cottage. And Western Kingfisher Sea Angling run by John King guarantees a great trip on the ocean.

A good cottage in a fantastic location. Cleggan is a warm and welcoming place which we have visited several times before. Loads of good music in the villages and nearby Clifden. Spectacular scenery all around. Absolutely no complaints about the service at all.

We had a fantastic stay in King Cottage, Cleggan. The house was perfect in a beautiful location over-looking the harbour and the sunset we had on one or two evenings was spectacular. We were in a central location to visit places such as Inish-boffin, Cliften, Connemara National Park and there were beautiful beaches very close by. The owners of the house were really friendly and helpful and they left milk, butter, fresh bread and also dropped in fresh fish on our first day which was really appreciated and made us feel very welcome. We'll definitely be back.

Beautiful cottage with stunning views. A great base for touring Galway. A comfortable cottage right on the shoreline so if you want to have a relaxing day and stay at the cottage you won't be disappointed.

Excellent centre for exploring Connemara . The Owner is a lovely person and he kept us supplied with fresh crab and fish. There is an excellent fish restaurant 100 yards from the cottage

It was one of the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The cottage was wonderful, the owner was very helpful. Everything you need was already in the cottage. The owners were a delight and there was a warm welcome whenever you met.
