LOCAL AREA: Mannin Bay Cottage is a 10 minute walk from the village of Ballyconneely, a mere six miles from the equally beautiful Dogs Bay in Roundstone and six miles from the bustling town of Clifden.
Mannin Bay Cottage is perfectly situated for exploring Connemara. Connemara provides probably the finest angling in western Europe for salmon, sea trout and brown trout, but lake fishing and most outdoor pursuits - from mountaineering to bathing are well catered for through out the entire area.
Ballyconneely is home to the renowned Connemara Golf course. There are several horse riding stables in the area and of course miles of white sandy beaches to explore. The house is within a half hour drive of Roundstone, Ballyinahinch, Renvyle, Cleggan, Letterfrack and Kylemore. The island of Inishboffin is a short boat trip from Cleggan harbor.

We fell in love with the location; it offered all the elements to provide the zen like feeling we were craving
This lovely cottage on Mannin Bay in the Connemara region is exactly as depicted in the photos and description. The house is bright and cheerful with updated amenities. The large picture window in the main living area was our entertainment as we watched the seals and herons. Melanie made sure we knew how to use the fireplace which we did at night. She placed fresh flowers on the table to greet us and made sure we knew how to reach her during our stay. Melanie gave us suggestions for sightseeing including making sure we knew about a children's parade in nearby Clifden that weekend.
It is a bit longer of a drive on narrow roads back to Galway City than we anticipated so we modified our plans to stay in the Connemara region. The cottage provided a quiet home base for our visit.
The house is well equipped including a kitchen which met our needs completely. We didn't see that reflective safety vests were in the house as we had seen in other lodgings during our visit to the country. The roads are not well lit so be sure to bring your own gear if you plan to walk during the evening or early morning. Otherwise, we wanted for nothing and we would definitely recommend this wonderful house for anyone wanting a place to stay while visiting Connemara.
In a rural setting with nature in full bloom at your doorstep this home is clean and modern. The decor has been tastefully created from designer publications and is appointed with culinary delight. We loved walking (2-3kms) to witness a variety of pasture grazers and the beautiful beaches along the coast. From Inishbofin to the Marconi signal station there are many ways to experience life and history among the people of Ireland.
Great house with great views of farm, cows and bay right out front window, House had everything we needed for our 4 day stay, including full kitchen. Easily slept 6 adults.
Pub just down the road was very good and is part of local convenience/market. Members and staff at nearby Connemara Golf Links were the best. Food and views from club restaurant were fantastic and reasonably priced. Town of Clifden is 10 minute ride and winding road has great views. Worth the trip!
We were a little still on California time so our brains were not as sharp as needed to locate this home. We contacted the owner for help in locating and there was an immediate response to guide us to the house.There were only three of us, so more than ample room. We enjoyed the ever changing view out the from window. The home is well stocked with the kitchen items we needed to prepare our meals. There is a shop in the village a short 3-5 minute drive away. We would certainly recommend this is anyone coming to this area of Ireland and would book again if we return. The property was clean.

A beautiful, comfortable and fantastically equipped house. We felt right at home and relaxed from the moment we arrived - everything had been thought of. The views through the huge window were better than TV - we sat watching the seals over breakfast and the herons at dinner. We had plans to go out one night but the lure of the turf fire, the comfy seats and big wine glasses kept us at home instead:)
We are already looking at dates to get back again!
We had an amazing stay in Mannin.
The house was simply perfect: clean, quiet, bright and the view on Mannin bay
was simply stunning. Fully equipped for cooking as you would at home.
White sand beaches, turquoise blue water, Connemara mountains and lakes just a step from the house.
We'll probably have another stay there.
