“Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a week and we can't wait to go back. In fact, we will next year! The property itself was so clean and comfortable and was a perfect location for the local pubs, shops and places to visit. We hiked the Diamond mountain one afternoon and had a picnic at the top, the weather was perfect for it! Went on a spin of the Connemara Loop, discovered some amazing beaches and breath taking scenery. On our last day we went to Kylemore Abbey, it was definitely the highlight of our trip, the Victorian Gardens are beautiful and so colourful. Anna Marie the owner was so lovely and genuine. We couldn't work the TV one evening so she popped up and showed us, nothing was too much trouble! Thank you so much, see you next year.
