Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings
I searched the internet with the words ‘idyllic Galway cottage with views’ and this cottage came up. My goodness, it exceeded expectation in all ways! The cottage is beautiful throughout. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, the rooms are large and the bedrooms have more than enough storage space. The bathrooms are gleaming and the jacuzzi bath is an added treat. We had mainly beautiful weather for the time of year, but it was chilly on a night, so we lit the peat/wood burner each evening, which added to the ambience of the beautiful living room. The views out of all windows are picture postcard perfect. Mountains, sea and islands in all directions, with the scenery changing depending on the weather and light. Mike, the cottage owner is so helpful and informative and he gave us some fantastic ideas of places to visit in the area that we may not have discovered ourselves. The drive across country to Kylemore Abbey through Inagh Valley is stunning, as are the white sands of Dogs Bay. Take a walk down to the little harbour (turn right out of the drive and follow the road to the end). You may collect several local dogs along the way, but they all seemed friendly and the view at the end is worth the walk. Can’t wait to visit again to do the things we didn’t get round to this time.
Wonderful return stay!
We returned to this beautiful cottage for a one week stay. The overall quality of the property continues to be impressive making it a lovely place to spend time in. The surrounding scenery is exceptional at any time of the year and the views from the windows of the property are truly stunning. We highly rate this property for a whole range of reasons.
The cottage provides a tranquil escape from it all whilst having plenty to see and do in easy travelling distance. If you want to experience Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way this wonderful Connemara property is ideal.
This was our first trip to Ireland and we will definitely be back. Michael gave us thorough directions to the cottage and explained everything we needed. There is a village shop close by but not much else in the way of services but this adds to the appeal of the cottage as it means you are really getting away from it all. The cottage itself is first class, everything you will need is here Michael seems to have thought of everything to make your stay outstanding, we particularly loved the lounge with windows on every side offering stunning views. The cottage is about half an hour from the nearest beach and pub and an hour from most other attractions. This is not a problem, if you want a totally relaxing, get away from it all holiday this is for you. We loved the peace and quiet and an added bonus was the star gazing which was amazing due to the lack of light pollution. There are plenty of pubs round and about offering excellent food, the seafood chowder is a speciality. Stay at this cottage you won't regret it.
Another wonderful stay!
This was our second visit to the cottage returning because of the high quality it offers. It is second to none! Both in terms of the comfort and cleanliness of the property paired with the 360 degrees of outstanding scenery. The owners manage the property with a refreshing level of attention to detail, the maintainence and warm welcome by Eileen is also of a very high standard. The cottage is spacious, well equipped as a home from home, decorated and furnished beatifully. There is so much to see locally and plenty of fantastic beaches nearby to explore. It is clear that the property and its location would suit many, from our perspective it makes a perfect family break. We will book again!
Luxury by the Sea
This was our second stay at this lovely property. The setting is absolutely stunning. The house is equipped to the highest standards and everything you need is provided. The property was spotlessly clean. Mike is very easy to deal with. The location may appear remote, but is in fact in easy reach of many of the attractions in the area, with the added bonus that driving to these takes you through fabulous scenery.
Outstanding cottage in a fantastic location
If you are looking to explore Connemara and want a base that is welcoming and very comfortable this property will not disappoint. The cottage is located in an area of fantastic scenery and has views of the Wild Atlantic Way and spectacular mountains. The property is finished to a high specification and all visitor needs have been considered with well thought out information on the property and the local/wider area. The cottage is well equipped for a family, the decor is of a very high standard and it is immaculately clean.
Mike the owner and Eileen who takes care of the property were really friendly and helpful.
We have already recommended to family and friends and would definitely book again.
A perfect stay in a truly beautiful part of Ireland!
The cottage is on the Atlantic side of the Wild Atlantic Way. There are two pretty quays within walking distance; one just five minutes away and the other about twenty. There are several quiet sandy beaches within easy reach by car, the nearest being about half an hour away across the bay.
The nearest airport is West of Ireland Airport at Knock, which is about a two hour drive away, much of it with stunning views of loughs and mountains. Otherwise the drive from Dublin Airport only takes about four hours, including a break.
The drive from Dublin Port or Dun Loughaire takes about four hours, including a break.
All of Connemara's attractions are within an hour's drive, including: Galway for shopping restaurants and street performers, Clifden for multi-coloured shops, restaurants and bars with live Irish music, the pretty fishing village of Roundstone, the ferry to the Aran Isles, Kylemore Abbey and Walled Victorian Garden, Killary Fjord for boat trips, Lough Corrib for fishing, Connemara National Park, Connemara Heritage and History Centre, Glengowla Silver and Lead Mine, Brigit's Garden and much more.
There are three shops on the Rosmuc peninsula. You can get almost anything you may need from one of the shops, O'Malley's, which is also a Post Office.
There are also two local bars, but if you are looking for pubs with bar food and music, so that you can experience the Irish "Craic", you can find these in Clifden which is about forty-five minutes away by car.
Rosmuc is in the centre of an area known as the Gaeltacht where Irish is the first language. So when you are in Rosmuc you can expect people to be speaking in Irish. What it means is that you really are experiencing the real Ireland. But don't worry, they speak English too and are very friendly.
To eat out you will need to go a little further afield, but you can find excellent restaurants in Galway, Clifden, Roundstone and Oughterard. If you like to cook there is a fully-equipped kitchen at the cottage.
There are plenty of walks around Connemara and details of many of these are provided at the cottage. If you fancy a cycle around the Rosmuc peninsula there are two bikes in the outbuilding.
