We were a group of 2 families of 4 and there was ample space, perfect bedroom options (beds were SO comfy!) a great well equpped kitchen, and no issues for bathroom demand!. Even on a wet day we could all relax inside just enjoying the house. Did not want to come home.”- Alice & Michael August 2017
“This is a large, bright, spacious family home on its own land and is ideal for a holiday base in Connemara. We have been holidaying here for years and this house is very hard to beat. 10-15 minute walk to Clifden, idyllic setting close to the sea. House is very well appointed, grounds are very safe for kids. 4 bedrooms downstairs (2 ensuite), 1 upstairs (ensuite), separate utility room, spacious hall. Outdoor hoses great for washing down the wet suits/car after day at the beach. Loads of parking. Super views across water and access to a tidal The upstairs has its own spacious mezzanine sitting/reading area with TV and games area so it works really well for children/teens/break away for adults. This house is very spacious so you could spend the day at home/outside and not get cabin fever. Really couldn’t ask for more. A home away from home.”- September 2016
“We found Yvonne and her team extremely attentive and friendly. We got excellent directions and were not disappointed on arrival with a welcome pack to make a cup of tea and have a snack. The photographs do not do the house justice. It is in a superb location 5 minutes by car from Clifden and yet private with a field in front sweeping down to a quiet bay. The accommodation is well thought out and provides five separate well furnished bedrooms. The owners have decorated the house with a lot of style with a mixture or period and modern pieces and lovely decor with bags of personality. We didn’t do much cooking because of all the great restaurants in Clifden but if we had the kitchen was fully loaded for any budding masterchef. Sky TV with loads of channels and good quality broadband included.”-Derek July 2016
