“Lovely, spacious, comfortable private house in Roundstone.”

This house was just what we hoped for! Clean, airy, private and comfortable place to relax and yet within walking distance of town for a nice meal and a look at the water. We would definitely recommend the wooden house. Thanks!

“Wonderful comfortable stay in beautiful area”

We had a lovely break in the wonderful Wooden House. The house is in a fabulous position with its own large garden and views of the Errisbeg Mountain. We know the area well so we were delighted to find this great house.
Roundstone is a very scenic village and out of season is pretty quiet. It has a shop, post office and several pubs/ restaurants. We had some great food at O'Dowds pub and the best pint of Guinness ever!
The beaches within walking distance - Gurteen and Dogs Bay -are fabulous for long beach walks and you can also walk across the headland. Brilliant wildlife and a photo opportunity at every turn.
The house itself is very cosy and comfortable. It is really well equipped and has a good kitchen and lots of cooking utensils, pans and dishes for making home cooked food.The house is a good size and very clean(thanks to the lovely Ann).
All in all would highly recommend this property.We had a thoroughly lovely stay and would hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

“Absolutely great stay”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We are very sad to leave the wooden house after a fantastic 3 day stay. We had fantastic weather - a rarity in March in Ireland! The town of Roundstone is lovely and we got to know all the pubs and restaurants. The house is perfect - spacious, warm, quiet, peaceful. We will definitely be back.

“Great location”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Wooden House was very comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfectly located to see all the sites of Connemara. Very peaceful, just what we needed. Watch out for the friendly resident hare!

“Great location twixt village and beach!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Spacious house. Very well equipped with crockery, tea towels, tin foil, dish washer tabs, washing powder, cooking oil etc. Many houses I've stayed in before have nothing but this house has it all! We didn't need to use the wood burner as the house was warm enough but did get a BBQ in! We hit lucky with the weather and picniced on Gurteen beach 3 days in a row. The beaches are almost Mediterranean when the sun shines. We ate in roundstone a couple of nights. It's only a 5 min walk. The boys fell in with a couple of other holiday makers and attended a few football matches at the Tarmac pitch. The shamrock was great for food and music and O'Dowds...I recommend the Guinness. Be warned Vaughans (Roundstone Hotel) stops serving food at 7. They're missing a trick there.
All in all would definitely recommend. The whirly gig clothes line needs straightened, other than that...perfect!
