"Comfortable cottage and a beautiful location"

Nice welcome with a roaring fireplace. The owner was helpfull explaining the facilities and talking to us about the area and he texted us the next day to find out if everything was okay. The cottage is very comfortable and the location is nice and quiet but good to find and in the middle of Connemara so close to places as Clifden and Kylemore Abbey.

"Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and beautiful views over the lake."

Comfortable well equipped rooms with excellent amenities. The location was perfect for day trips to Galway City, Clifden and Kylmore Abbey etc.. We loved the views over the lake at sunset from the back of the house, the open fire (and central heating) and the perfect location for walking in the Connemara hills.

"The perfect spot to get away from it all, tranquil, comfortable, beautiful"

The house was perfect for us (a group of 6 friends) had loads of room. It had comfortable well equipped rooms but the highlight were the views out over the lake at sunset from the back of the house. A great location for doing day trips around Connemara. Sean gave us all the information we needed and even gave us local taxi numbers in case we wanted to go to a local pub a few km away. We couldn't have been looked after better and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet escape to the heart of Connemara.
