Further details indoors:
The sitting room and kitchen are enclosed on one side by magnificent floor to ceiling windows which allow you to take full advantage of the ever-changing Connemara light, for which Roundstone is renowned. A raised log burning fire provides the perfect backdrop to every evening.
The kitchen has a stunning high ceiling which creates a tranquil sense of space and light. The kitchen/dining area centres around a beautiful oak dining table which comfortably seats 10 people. Not only does the ktichen have floor to celling windows to one side, it also has, to the other side, a fabulous view of the towering Errisbeg Mountain- every way you turn you are surrounded by Roundstone's natural charm.
A terrace runs the entire length of kitchen and living room and is accessible from both rooms- it catches the sun throughout the day making it the perfect spot for morning coffee, lunch or an evening meal.
Off the kitchen is a snug which doubles as an en suite bedroom. The snug is fitted with a top quality futon and can be separated from the living areas by a sliding door. The snug has its own private shower room, fitted with a walk in shower and tiled in shimmering quartz tiles.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and top quality beds dressed in crisp white cotton linens. The master bedroom is extra spacious and boasts a superking bed, handmade dresser and en suite. The master bedroom is crowned with spectacular views reaching out over the Atlantic Ocean. There is a separate bathroom on this floor with a bath.
Directly behind the main house is an outhouse which is securely connected to the main house. The outhouse has two bunkbeds and is ideal for older children. The outhouse is also home to walk-in waterfall shower- perfect for long hot showers or for refreshing after a day at the beach.

11 Jul 2012
We have never stayed in such a modern setting before and my teenage and grown up children just loved it. The ground floor is a flowing open plan split level to the lounge/ sitting area, then stepping up to the dining and kitchen area which is double height. Such a lovely south facing space fully glazed to the garden and lovely views of Errisbeg to the north west behind.The kitchen is very well appointed but does miss a microwave to do my youngest's weetabix in the morning.
On the ground floor is a snug that doubles as the fourth double bedroom with a shower room, the position of which gives some separation to the kitchen to the lounge area.
Upstairs is a generous master bedroom with ensuite shower and two double bedrooms served by a family bathroom (with bath).
Linked to the ground floor is an ancillary block which houses a fourth very generous walk in shower perfect for getting rid of the sandy beach trips, a well equipped utility room and the boiler room. The boiler room is large enough for a double bunk but the point of the separateness of the utility block is clear when the 'heat pump' kicks in. It's noisy but you can't hear it in the main house. The underfloor heating is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and I am now a converted fan...it is just so comfortable.
The house's only fault my children tell me is the lack of wifi, but for me it was a bonus. We talked!
We had a perfect stay, with most days on 'Dogs Bay' the most perfect beach ever just 5mins away, windsurfing, power kiting, skinny dipping and then enjoying the marvellous kitchen to cook some epic meals.
I plan to come back.
