Very Comfortable Home My family stayed at 123 Clifden Glen for 6 days over Christmas. The house was lovely- very clean, well equipped and plenty of seating for 7 of us. Very cozy home. I could not fault it. It’s 2 mins drive from the town and Aldi/Lidl and approx 25 mins walk- we brought high viz waistcoats and torches for walking – it’s a main road with no pathways for part of the walk. We had VC a lovely stay. Rachel, Jan 2020
“Excellent place, we had a great time. Thank you!”-Connie May 2019
“Clean and comfortable”
“My family of 6 stayed here for a couple nights and we wish it could have been longer. It was a great location, just a few mins drive to town center. My 14 year old son and my husband both walked into town at one point even. The showers were great. Bed upstairs was super comfortable I slept so well! There was a lot of information and the hosts were very welcoming and friendly! We loved it! 5 Stars!! “– Amanda, April 2019
“Yvonne’s house was fantastic, myself and family / friends really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were easy to communicate with, the house was clean and tidy upon arrival with towels and linens left on each bed. Yvonne even had a fire lit for us when we arrived. Check in also easy, we arrived after office hours but there was clear instructions on how to access the property along with very clear instructions on anything and everything else we needed to know for our stay. The cost of the house for one night was very high unfortunately, but that would be the only bad point. Everything else was perfect and we really enjoyed our stay.”-Conor December 2018
“No complaints! House was ideal and great location.”
“House had everything required for a comfy relaxed holiday and the welcome pack was a lovely touch on arrival.”-Cyril June 2018
“Very comfortable and clean property. Property is bright, spacious and well located close to Clifden. The 3 bathrooms are super quality. The kitchen while we did not use cooking much is very adequate. TV and heating are all fine. With 3 double bedrooms our 8 year old enjoyed his own personal upstairs “suite” of bedroom bathroom and connected TV sitting/relaxing room for early morning kids TV. The only minor negative is that one of the downstairs back bedrooms whether occupied or not needs the heat on regularly to keep fresh. Overall a very good property for a family holiday for up to 6 people”-Richard August 2017
“The location was perfect for our family holiday in Connemara. The house was spacious and well equipped including decent WiFi and having 2 television areas allowed for the kids to have their own area. We really enjoyed having the tennis courts and kids park in walking distance. Any questions we had were answered pleasantly and efficiently by the Connemara Lettings staff both via email, phone and on site.”-Georgina August 2017
“Beautiful comfortable spacious home with all the utensils needed. My 3 children loved the home and looked forward to returning to it in the evenings. Yvonne and her team couldn’t have been more helpful and obliging. I will definitely recommend Connemara Lettings to my friends and family.” Helen July 2017
“Great find. Looks deceptive on outside but this property is huge inside, ensuite showers, great hot water system and a lovely light location with perfect grounds for children. Five minutes from the centre of Clifden. Warm and welcoming and would definitely come again.”-Pippa April 2017

“Really good, clean place with a perfect location to the town. Perfect place for families with young kids.”-Dean March 2016
“We recently stayed at Clifden Glen with our 18 month old toddler. He loved the open plan kitchen/living area with great space for him to play and walk around in. The location is great – just a minute from Clifden, and you can hear the sound of the river when you open the windows or walk outside. The beds are comfortable, the house is modern and the location is nice and quiet but not too remote. A decent sized TV with freesat which was perfect for watching the rugby world cup while enjoying the warm stove. Would recommend and would definitely stay here again.”-Michael October 2015
