With our two boys we stayed a few nights in Hillsidehouse. After a warm welcome we enjoyed a great B&B and every Morning a delicous breakfast. The location is a very good base for Connemara and Barbara a wonderful Host. Thank you and we will recommend Hillsidehouse to all ireland travellers

Barbara offers a great warm welcome at her and her husband Patrick's beautiful home in Connemara. It is just off the main road with amazing views along the coastline. My room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the breakfast was great and if you want to practise your Irish (or English) then this is the place for you! I can't think...

Very few B&Bs were listed in the B&B Ireland book along this stretch of coastline. We loved this place. It is just off the main road, up the hill a bit. When my husband expressed concern about getting in and out of the shower (He has a disability.), Barbara offered us an alternate room with a sturdy grab bar in...

We found this jewel by accident but was overwhelmed with the view and hospitality of Barbara and Patrick. It is also refreshing to get a wifi connection in the room but we did. TV was a little hard to watch at the angle it was attached to the wall but one should not be there to watch TV.
