“Great cottage with stunning scenery. Easy access to the wilds of Connemara and Mayo. Host v helpful and welcoming and cottage warm and toasty with all facilities for self catering! Full marks!”- Bernie December 2021

“We loved our stay at Hillview House in Leenane.  Upon arrival we were greeted by our terrific host Jeannie, who had already made sure the hose was nice and warm.  It has a nice fireplace, plenty of space to cook and all the facilities we needed to have a great time over Christmas.  It is also at a walking distance from the pubs and restaurants in the town of Leenane, located perfectly in the hills of Connemara.  From Leenane you have great views over the Killary Fjord and you’ll find a couple of nice spots for a pint and/or lunch/dinner.  Within a few minutes’ drive, you’ll be at the Kylemore Abbey or other beautiful locations like the Connemara National Park.  Would highly recommend staying here!” – Bart December 2021
