“This perfect house in a perfect location has everything necessary for a wonderful relaxing holiday in Connemara. From its choice of colour scheme, to its space and comfort. From its up to date appliances and it’s scenic views from every window and its proximity to beaches, I couldn’t fault it. I would recommend this property without hesitation.” – Stephanie August 2017
“Our visitors from Australia fell in love with this property. Access to the common ground and to the beach was a big plus.” Clare July 2017
“The view here is wonderful but what’s even nicer is that you can walk and walk along the coast and not just look at it all from afar. We loved Imelda’s house – it is decorated beautifully and is very comfortable, The beds are great but so also are the armchairs, dining-chairs, patio chairs, It is a very relaxing spot, the garden full of hares, larks and wheatears. The only sounds are the sea, birds, and the donkeys, we found it blissful even though we didn’t have very good weather. Imelda has created a place full of space and serenity and we look forward to getting back there again.” Lulu June 2017
“We stayed in this stunning house overlooking the ocean as a family and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Imelda has decorated this lovely home in a boutique style and it is similar to what you might find in the Cotswolds or Cornwall. The kitchen even has an island and all mod cons! There are picture windows everywhere so you feel that you are always looking at the ocean no matter which part of the house you are in. It is so unusual to find such a stylish place in the wilds of Connemara. The beach is on your doorstep and the Connemara Sands hotel is a short bike ride away so if you fancy a spa treatment/ lovely meal/ cocktail you can have it all! I almost don’t want to tell people about this place in case it gets too busy but it wouldn’t be fair to keep it to myself! It is outstanding and we will stay again!” Bifty July 2016
“This house is even nicer than it looks in the photos. The interior is in impeccable condition. The location is perfect, with stunning views and a beautiful beach, and within easy driving distance of several attractions like Inishbofin, Dog’s Bay, Kylemore Abbey etc. Only small glitch was lack of wifi. I would definitely stay again.” – Anne August 2016
