“A Wonderfully Peaceful Place”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This cottage is like a little dream come true. It has fantastic views of a lake, a glen, and mountains near and far. I stayed two weeks and walked every day in the beauty of Connemara. Three days, I was able to walk from the door of the house! The owner was welcoming and clear with instructions, etc. The house is well kitted out with all you might need - including a nice little library of books and DVDs. I loved having a fire on the cooler nights.

“If you want to get away from it all , here is perfect”

An amazing and quiet location with lovely views. An ideal spot from which to visit Connemara, great walks. If you feel like eating out and seeing a little just hustle and bustle then head to Oughtergaard rather than Cliffden. The best days out were horse riding, The Fjord boat trip, and the sheep dog farm in Leenan. Only doubt being that it was not the perfect place for a teenager - be warned. Thanks Sean for giving us a warm welcome and farewell.

“Peaceful, but wonderful base to explore Connemara”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent a most relaxing week, either at the cottage of exploring the coast and villages of county Galway. Sean is friendly, helpful and made us most welcome. Even Paddy the beekeeper showed us his bees, and the local farmer was also very friendly.
