“Capolla House is a large cottage ideally located; it is close to the village of Clifden (within walking distance) but far enough away that you do not feel crowded. It overlooks a lovely green, wooded area. The cottage is well maintained, very comfortable, and well equipped. We stayed for one month, during which time we had no issues or concerns with the cottage. The owners are nearby and were very welcoming and helpful.   Connemara Lettings provided excellent customer service before, during, and after our stay. Our holiday was excellent!”

“had a brill weekend in capolla house. It was perfect for our 2 families. Very close to town but away from the hustle and bustle of Clifden. We had all the space we needed and comforts we needed.
