Region Towering cliffs stand next to vast stretches of golden sand, whilst vast mountain ranges cradle cool, low-lying lakes. The Galway region epitomises the term 'great outdoors'; with fantastic walking and cycling and exhilarating watersports.
We have booked into Quayside house several times over the years and always feel very much at home there.. It has spacious and well planned accommodation and the facilities are more than adequate with the newly fitted shower room a bonus.
It has a wonderful view from the picture window and is located in the very beautiful village of Roundstone where everyone is genuinely warm and friendly to all. I would recommend Quayside house and will certainly be booking it again in the future. Thank you.
Second time in this cottage.. There is a smart new shower room and new flooring in the twin since last year. I complained about the shocking three piece suite last year and was amazed to find it still there however half way through the week we came back to a brand new one- a massive improvement. The house is a good basic stay and is excellent value for money.
The first floor lounge has stunning views across the bay and over to the twelve bens. Couple of mins to a good choice of bars and restaurants and a great base for touring Connamara.
The heating timer doesn't work (the clock fails to move) so put it on constant when you need it, it's quick to heat up.
One other tip- get up early and watch the sunrise over the bay, stunning. We'll be back!
The house is in an amazing location.. Roundstone Village is beautiful. The people were extremely friendly. There are four pubs, two hotels and two cafes so we were never spoilt for somewhere to eat and drink.
The house is very clean but the furniture is extremely dated. The sofa is in desperate need of replacement. The leather is coming off and was actually sticking to us when the throws thrown over it cover it up slipped off, which they did continually. The real bug bear for me was the lack of a hairdryer. I've never stayed anywhere that doesn't provide a hairdryer. We had to purchase one from Galway.
We also struggled with the rubbish. The information book told us to purchase recycling bags from the local convenience store. They told us that the recycling company don't supply to them any more and you have to go to the company themselves. This we were not prepared to do when on holiday therefore we had to leave the rubbish in the yard in black bin bags which the lady in the shop told us wouldn't be taken away - catch 22. We felt that the correct bin bags should have been left under the sink.
All that said, we had an amazing holiday and the house was just somewhere to lay our heads (the beds were extremely comfy) as we were very lucky with the weather and were out all day ever day.
Quayside House lived up to all our expectations - most enjoyable stay
Warm, comfortable and spotless! Friendly village and great views from the lounge, even watched an otter from the comfort of our armchair-such a treat.

Lovely cottage in beautiful village.. There was nothing missing, it was warm and cosy, really home from home.
Quayside House is a lovely property in a great location.
We found the property to be perfect in meeting our every need and felt at home as soon as we arrived. The owners were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The village of Roundstone is a perfect place to relax amongst the friendliest of people, along with spectacular views and a great sense of tranquillity. The nearby beaches of Dogs Bay and Gorteen are stunning, with clear blue sea and white sand. A lovely cottage in a wonderful and very special place. I intend to return again and again and again.
A lovely family home with all the amenities needed. It was traditionally furnished, all of a good standard and clean with spacious clean and comfortable bedrooms. The view from the living room was a wonderful wake up call each morning. Roundstone itself was well catered for pubs and restaurants all to be recommended. Will return in the future.

View from living room is stunning! You could spend your entire holiday just in Roundstone and not get tired of the place. Bedrooms were perfectly positioned with very comfy beds!
The house is very well located in the little village of Roundstone. The view of the bay and the mountains is fantastic. Connemara is an amazing country and we enjoyed being there. The house size and furniture is perfect for 5 people.
The location was excellent. There was no trouble with the neighbours.
The property in a lovely quiet area. It was spacious with ample room for a large family of seven people. The en-suite was a real bonus. The location of the sitting room on the second floor was really great.
We stayed at Quayside House Roundstone during June 2013 and found it to be a well equipped,very clean and well presented house (a lovely home for the week.The view over Roundstone Bay is inspiring and the people of Roundstone genuinely friendly and helpful.
