Excellent location for getting out and about.. Wonderful friendly hospitality from caretaker who met us on our arrival, supplied us generously with scones, butter, jam and milk, met us on departure to check everything had been ok for us and was available to us during our stay if we needed anything. (Which we didn’t but good to know she was there). Cottage beautiful, comfortable and well-equipped. And the sun smiled on us for 2 weeks!!

A really beautiful part of Ireland.. Holiday home was so comfortable, we felt at home right away. It was extremely well decorated and spotlessly clean and on our arrival delicious bread, milk and butter awaited us. Was a lovely touch and just what was needed after a long drive. The local community were very welcoming and friendly making our short stay very enjoyable and we hope to make a return visit in the future

Labasheeda is a beautiful property that has so many extras not normally found in holiday rentals. It really is a home from home and Barbara is such a lovely woman, leaving scones, milk and butter for us on arrival. The amenities in the house are second to none and there are plenty of towels and bed linen there for guests use. The location is also a perfect base to explore Connemara to the west or Galway city to the east. The town of Carraroe has a beautiful coral beach and there is places to eat and drink and a big Eurospar with everything you could need for a food shop. We have had such a lovely week and are very sad to leave. Can't recommend Labasheeda enough!

Very warm welcome by the owner's sister/caretaker - scones, butter and milk left for us in the fridge.. Spotless house with all mod cons Brother in law gave us some fresh wrasse and crab that he had caught locally Highly recommended Janet Thomas Llandovery

Very complete and comfortable stay.. The kitchen was complete and very much appreciated: the basics as toiletpaper, kitchen (paper) towels, dishwasher tablets, clingfoil, tea were all available. I expect salt and pepper were left overs from other guests :-) There were several... And ofcourse, as many people already mentioned: the scones on arrival! Makes you feel welcome. During our stay it was chilly outside, but inside it was nice and warm.

Accommodation was excellent, very clean and comfortable and very well provided for.. Would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to the bungalow for future holiday.

An excellent stay in an excellent property.. It was warm and cosy and we enjoyed getting back after every trip out. Great location near local amenities and only a short walk back from the pub! The house had everything you could imagine you might ever need when self catering and it was spotlessly clean. There was an array of books and dvds to enjoy if desired. Fresh scones and other essentials were waiting on arrival and picking up and dropping off the keys was so easy. We have stayed in lots of holiday homes, air bandb places and hotels... this was our best yet. Thanks a lot. We look forward to returning next time we are back in Carraroe.

We are just back from a week in Carraroe. This house is very very clean, very comfortable and stylish and is equipped with all mod cons. All beds were very comfortable. Anything you need is at your fingertips. We had a lovely welcome from Barbara who made scones and brown bread for us and brought some other provisions for a cuppa. We had a request on our second day which Barbara's husband attended to without delay. We were a party of four adults and two children and there was plenty of room for us all and very comfy bedrooms and beds for all too. We will definitely stay there the next time we holiday in Connemara and would not hesitate to recommend this house to others.

The cottage was extremely clean, we are usually very particular about that and in this nice cottage, everything was clean and nice.. The kitchen equipment was above average. And the landlady was one of the nicest Irish persons we met on our trip. She had even baked (delicious) scones for us upon arrival! We have often booked cottages in other countries but we have never had this perfect service before.

The house has everything you need and it very comfortable. Homemade treats were made for us on our day of arrival by Barbara. There was butter and milk left for us also. This is a great base to explore Connemara. There is a shed in the back where you can leave your bikes. We have stayed there 3 times now and looking forward to be back next year.

Labasheeda house in Carraroe is a real "Home away from home". Our family enjoyed a wonderful holiday based in this comfortable, clean, well equipped house during the last week in June. Barbara (the owners sister) left us a batch of home made scones on arrival, with butter & milk. A kindly touch. We also met the owner Maureen who was friendly and welcoming. A great base for touring this part of Co Galway. Our girls loved the beach 5mins from the house. We would love to return someday, as we all thought the house was one of the best rentals we had ever stayed in!

Bhí saire iontach againn aris sa Cheathru Rua = We have a great holiday again in Carraroe .. We were made to feel very welcome. Barbara spoilt us by baking for us yet again. Last time we got a carrot cake, this year we got yummy brown and fruit scones. It is a lovely personal touch. In addition there was milk and butter left in the fridge, so we were all sorted for breakfast the next day. Barbara spoke to us in Irish as we were down for the week doing an Irish course. I need all the practice I can get. Labasheeda is a great location lovely and quite, yet it is only walking distance from the town. It is a short drive away from many beaches. My favourite beach is Trá on Dóilin. The house is so comfortable and has everything you will need. We love the place so much, we are back again in July for another week.
May 2017
A beautifully furnished bungalow. All mod cons and big enough for four adults to relax in. A well-maintained home which was a joy to stay in for a week. Welcome from owner's sister, coupled with home made scones, was much appreciated. A perfect retreat. Would love to return.

This cottage is outstanding in all respects.. It is fully furnished down to the smallest detail, it is immaculately clean, the furniture and beds are very comfortable and the welcome from Mrs. Malloy, the caretaker, including fresh scones with butter, is unparallelled. We could not have asked for anything more for our holiday in Carraroe.

Labasheeda is a lovely place to stay. The owner was so kind. The house is so cosy; a great place to chill out after exploring Connemara. I can't wait to go back next year.

This place is fantastic! Great for kids with large garden at the rear, good size bedrooms and bathrooms. All the cutlery and equipment you need and immaculate throughout.

We enjoyed our stay in Carraroe very much. Everthing was prepared perfectly. Coming back again after 22 years to Ireland, I have to admit that the most important thing hasn't changed: the hospitality of the Irish people. Thank you so much to the owner for the great experience being a guest in your lovely cottage. The pictures are 100% real, everything is in place, clean and in perfect condition. The location is quiet, but in walking distance to shops, pub, lakes and beaches. Great starting point for hiking tours to coral beach and other place around Carraroe. Galway and and whole Connemara is within an hour drive.

We can't praise our stay w/c 12 March 2016 highly enough. We really loved the house as it was so comfortable, clean and warm. We also had such a hospitable welcome from Barbara, plus home made scones when we arrived, even though it was late. The bungalow is beautiful and so well equipped that we wished we had the opportunity to spend a little more time relaxing there. As the weather was unbelievably settled, warm & sunny, we spent more time out and about sightseeing than we had anticipated would be possible. Thank you to the Connemara weather gods. May be we will be able to arrange a return visit and enjoy such a lovely property and location once again before too long. Thanks again - Zoe & Dave

We had a lovely time, this was perfect accommodation and we had a warm and friendly welcome from the owner. In an ideal location and in beautiful surroundings - look forward to returning next year.

This was the best cottage our family has ever stayed at and we book a cottage every year for past 10 years. It was brilliant and the owner could not have been kinder. The cottage facilities were just superb and the location is perfect for touring Connemara.

A really lovely house in a good location and the owner, who met us at the house when we arrived was very friendly and thoughtful. The house was very well-equipped and attractively furnished throughout with a lovely patio area too. A good location for cyclists and great beaches nearby with Galway City less than a one hour drive away.

A fabulous house within walking distance of Carraroe. This was the best presented house we have ever stayed in; luxurious and comfortable.

We are just back from our week long stay at labasheeda. Myself my husband and our 3 children loved our stay. The house is a 5 minute easy walk from the village. It is so well stocked with all you could need for a great holiday. We had a lovely welcome with Maureen the owner leaving us home made bread and scones which were very welcome after our long journey. The house was so clean . Beds were very comfortable with lovely bed linen. There were 2 double rooms and one room with twin beds. The sitting room had a large TV and DVD player . If you are looking for comfort in a house which is very stylish this is the place for you. I can honestly say this was the cleanest rental house I have ever stayed in . Looking forward to going back in the future.

From the start we were given a warm welcome where we were greeted by the owner. This lady was wonderful and she checked in on us to see if we were happy while we were staying there. It was beautifully decorated with modern furnishings and had everything you need. Close to all tourist attractions.
