Self-Catering Reviews

Stayed for a week and we picked a great week for the weather. The cottage is larger than it looks and the additional sun room/conservatory at the back is a great benefit. The place was clean and tidy and the owners even made us a cake (which didn't last long!). Its well equipped and has everything you could need. There's plenty of books, a few games and jigsaws plus free wi-fi. Its slightly tucked away so if you like quiet then this is the place. Although there are a couple of other houses close by, we rarely saw the occupants. There is a very well stocked Eurospar about a 5-10 minute walk. The cafe nearby is nice but if you go to the takeaway, id suggest pre-ordering as its cooked to order. About a 10 minute drive is Coral beach, again quiet when we went and brilliant views. Its called Coral Beach due to the tiny bits of coral (who'd have guessed!) The roads are very well maintained and we did quite a bit of driving around to various places. The only thing id say is be careful on some roads and the surfaces seem to have sunk in places and wont do your car any good but on the whole, they are decent. A couple of places to visit, Kylemore Abbey and the Skyview Road for the views. If you decide to go for a drive, i would recommend (what I called) the windmill road which takes you to Oughterard. Its narrow in places but theres hardly any traffic so stopping to take photos isnt a problem, plus the Urban Cafe in Oughterard is a nice place for a cup of tea and maybe more cake

What a lovely surprise it was to walk into this house and feel immediately at home.. We were lucky enough to stay here for 2 weeks and we enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Patricia was responsive and helpful and made us feel most welcome. This area is remote and tucked away which is just what we were looking for. Long walks in a gorgeous and peaceful setting, no matter which direction. Visiting the Coral Strand was lovely, a good walk there and great swimming too. The town is small but everything you might need is there, a good pub with excellent Guinness and a great Sunday session, the Eurostar market is well stocked with everything you might need. A couple of restaurants too though it was more fun to cook at home (the kitchen is well appointed). Lovely to stay home and have a fire and a glass of wine. The bedrooms were nice in size, the mattress extremely comfortable, the linens fresh and of good quality. This is a good place to stay if you’re looking to be a bit away from the hustle and bustle of Galway. Day trips to Roundstone, Clifden, Connemara National Park, the Aran Islands, Galway all easy. We highly recommend this home and hope to return again soon! Thank you. Regina Wiedlin & John McDonagh

The cottage is quietly located in a low density development, many properties of which are full time homes.. There is an excellent Spar supermarket, a local pub and restautant/carry-out establishment a short walk away. The property is clean, well furnished and comfortable with a large conservatory and easily lit turf fire.The journey from the ferry port of entry, Larne outside Belfast, is straight forward. The toll motorways in Ireland are reasonably priced, fairly lightly used as you go west with no commercial traffic to speak of, and are easy to navigate. The 2 hours from Dublin to Galway was an easy drive, the countryside becomming more interesting the further west you go. Connemara with its lakes and mountains is breathtaking and villages such as Cong and towns such as Clifden should not be missed. At 42 miles long Lake Corrib is special, Ashford Castle a good setting out point for a Loch cruise, and Galway itself a continental experience, even on a wet day. The town museum is well worth a visit covering local history and culture. The area has been in occupation since Neolithic times and there is a lot to see if you seek it out.

Beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly require.. Spacious & spotless. Loved the selection of DVDs for use on rainy days or after a long day touring the area. Great beach nearby and the local eurospar catered every need. My daughter loved the swings out thr back. Felt very welcome & would love to come back again!

We enjoyed this lovely cottage very much .. Bit disappointed with where it is situated. But close to all facilities . And good touring for long drives . Only thing I did not like was the washing machine/ dryer /being in the shed .

This cottage was really lovely, very much home from home.. Micheal and Tricia are very friendly and welcoming. You have everything you could possibly need for either relaxing or hiking holiday. The only negative is, how long it takes to get to Galway, but a positive note is the scenery is beautiful. Also we haven't yet found a pub that welcomes your pet inside, when you are with family or friends you do not want them outside on their own or indeed in inclement weather.

The cottage is very well equipped , warm, comfortable and well located.. Our hosts Patricia and Michael went out of their way to help and look after us and seem to have thought of everything that we could possibly need . We will definitely book again! Thanks so much, Freia, Jim, Niamh and Gizmo

The property has an abundance of crockery and cutlery but the pans were really large.. As my wife is disabled we need to book properties that suit our needs and so we have occupancy of two in large properties. This is usually fine but sometimes like this one the pans are tailored for full occupancy and not for just the two of us. Beds can also be a problem for us as as well as we need firm to orthopaedic but most are soft and unsupportive as was this one. We couldn't find any instruction manuals on how to work the appliances. The property is probably the best we've been to during our 7 years visiting Ireland.

House extremely well equipped.. More like a home than a holiday let. Lovely bathrooms and great location for walks, Aran Islands and rest of Connemara.

Very well equiped bungalow.. Excellent location close to the Connemara Loop & all its beautiful scenery. Ideally situated for anyone wishing to catch the ferry to the Isles of Aran & close enough to the very modern city of Galway for those wanting a break from the peace & solitude of Connemara.

A comfortable well equipped and warm cottage on the edge of a small town with a reasonable selection shops pubs and restaurants within walking distance.. Lovely owners who were most helpful and friendly.There is a bus service into Galway but a car is really essential to explore the delights of Connemara

I liked that it was dog friendly.. It was comfortable, warm, airy and nicely decorated. I liked that it had two bathrooms, and the kitchen had all the amenities. The owners were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for a week in April and had a wonderful time. The house is perfect, spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a quiet location. The owner's daughter was there to welcome us, providing tea, coffee and cake. Top marks for that. I would recommend this listing to anyone, including those who have pets
