“Nostalgic holiday. There were eight in our party four of whom had not been to Connemara before. But for myself ,and three others, we were returning to the area after staying in Ballyconeely in 1979. Lots of things had changed so much but the scenery was just as beautiful and we had very good weather. Grace’s Cottage offered us a lovely retreat to return to. It was comfortable and well equipped and we all enjoyed our stay. One little thing was that although it slept eight, the seating provided in the lounge and kitchen was only geared to six but we managed to improvise. Thank you for a relaxing holiday.”-Anne July 2018
