Sleeps 8, 3 large bedrooms, 2 en suite, 1 family shower room

Built in 2004, Aunty Bo’s is bright and spacious with large picture windows in the living areas taking full advantage of the peaceful view of Ardbear Bay and Errisberg hill.

The house is decorated in calming colours; white washed walls and slate grey tiled floors, comfy cream and grey linen sofas with a selection of antique furniture that each has a story to tell.

The reconditioned black 4-oven AGA in the kitchen comes from the old monastery that was once next door and the breakfast bar made from an old church altar!

The living area is designed in such a way that no matter where you are you have a view of the bay, preparing food in the kitchen or sitting at the fire. Just off the living area is a lounge that houses a Yamaha baby grand piano here you can open up the double doors opening up to the views of the bay. The dining area opens to the fully equipped kitchen which is is semi open to the living area.

This magnificent house stands on 3 acres located in the picturesque Ardbear Peninsular, only 2 miles from Clifden, the Capital of Connemara set between the Atlantic Ocean, the Twelve Ben Mountains and preserved bog lands. There are great opportunities in the surrounding area for walking, cycling, golfing, swimming, surfing, painting or just relaxing and watch the ever changing bay and hill views.

Aunty Bo's can accommodate 8 people, with 2 double beds upstairs - double bedroom and twin room on the ground floor. Most rooms have superb views of the surrounding hills and bay. The sitting room seats up to 8 people and enjoys wonderful views of Ardbear Bay and has high vaulted ceilings with a mezzanine area ideal for children to play or for one to relax in the evening after a fun filled day touring the West of Ireland. The superb dining room also seats up to seven people and opens into the fully equipped kitchen, complete with a reconditioned AGA oven. Aunty Bo's is a perfect house for entertaining, large bright open plan area which is suitable for families, couples or friends wishing to get away from it all. If you have extended families or groups wishing to holiday together there is another large 4 bedroom property just up the lane available for rental.

Sessions of music, song, and dance are held nightly in most of the local pubs, where young and old, tourist and local, blend together to create a unique atmosphere.

Aunty Bo's - Beautiful spacious home, close to town, pet friendly & views of Ardbear bay
We were welcomed to aunty Bo's by Robbie, Yvonne's husband who directed us in from Clifden town and showed us around the house. We were delighted with it from the moment we arrived. It is a fabulous house with every thing you need for a holiday. Everywhere is so spacious and really comfortable. We lit the fire every night and really we were able to switch off for and relax for the week. We got out every day exploring the local beaches, Connemara National park was very near with well designed walks and we climbed Diamond Hill. A visit to Letterfrack despite it's tragic history was interesting. Food and shopping in Clifden was good we ate in Guy's a few times. We had three children with us 12, 9 & 7 and two grandparents and there was something for everyone! Only contention was no wi fi ... However that was the kids, adults were glad of the break!

Connemara is surrounded by white sandy clear water beaches which are safe to swim and provides chances for sailing, windsurfing, fishing, kayaking and canoing.

Dan O'Hara Homestead located only a couple of miles from the house is based around the restored prefamine cottage of Dan O’Hara who was forced to emigrate in the 1840's when he was evicted from his home.

One of the highlights of the centre is the guided tour to the Hilltop View and the visit to Dan O' Hara's Cottage.

From Clifden town you can take a wonderful walk up the Sky Road, it is a great way to see the wonderful backdrop to the town along with the two church spires, which give Clifden its distinctive skyline. Further along the Sky Road is a gateway leading to the ruins of the old D'Arcy mansion, Clifden Castle. Once a Gothic Mansion, the D'Arcy's lived here until 1850 when the estate was sold to the Eyre Family who lived here at intervals until the castle fell into ruin in the early 20th century. There are endless chances for horse riding and walking through a staggering amount of unique scenery, and if you need a break, you can always stop off in one of the glorious country pubs or restaurants which appear in every rural village. Enjoy a weekend at an excellent golf course, Connemara Golf Links in Ballyconneely here you will find amazing views of the sea.

There are many fine festivals to enjoy throughout the year in Connemara. Most full of music, dance, fun, laughter, activities and games for the young and the young-at-heart, Clifden Community Arts Festival celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2012 and once again offers a superb range of poetry readings, lectures, recitals, traditional music, concerts, comedy and school programmes as a further bonus.
