Pour aimer l'Irlande! In love with Connemara.

Pour aimer l'Irlande! In love with Connemara.

Endroit superbe, en bord de mer, appartement méticuleusement entretenu et propre. Frigo garni à l'arrivée, Hôtesse généreuse, puit de connaissance sur la région, aimant sa langue et son coin de pays. Parfait. L'air le plus pur de l'Europe : c'est vrai. Notre meilleur souvenir d'Irlande!

Wonderful quiet place, by the sea. Lovely apartment, ultra-clean, with all amenities, including a well-stocked fridge (enough for a hearthy breakfast anyway) on arrival, and complimentary bottle of wine. Mrs Green is a walking encyclopedia of the region and gave us a full hour course on what and where and why in Connemara! The purest air in Europe! and she didn't laugh when we tried to speak Irish...

Fond memories of a lovely week. Try it!

Connemara Beauty

  • 5 of 5
Had the time of my life with the girl of my dreams in beautiful Connemara. We did a lot of hiking along the coast right outside our room as well as in the national park. The accommodations were perfect; clean and comfortable with enough space to move around after unpacking. Rionna is an amazing resource for information about the area and she had a book of maps and descriptions of the best places to go. We hiked up to a church carved into the rock and we were the only ones there besides the sheep. We were on the road most days and there are a couple markets nearby which we could buy some things and cook. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was just so wonderfully peaceful and scenic. Although there were some tourists like us; most of the pubs and markets are mainly full of locals. We will certainly be back for more that Connemara has for us to experience.

Bru na mara

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Bru na mara for a week, which was ideal for us as we like to get away from crowds and the usual tourist centres. The appartment was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated and the "starter kit" in the kitchen was especially welcome as we arrived quite late at night. Riona takes great pride in her work and is always ready with helpful suggestions, be it sightseeing, shopping or local info. We were lucky enough to be there during a traditional music festival which was an added bonus. If you enjoy quiet sandy beaches, rugged hills, the sea and friendly pubs and restaurants, then this is definitely for you! Thank you, Riona, for a memorable holiday.

We, my cousins an me stayed a week at this beautiful and peaceful place. We stayed at sonas sitting room. we felt like home. Rioana is such a lovely person. She told us where to go and which spots we have to see.
If you sitting behind the house, looking across the sea, you can watch the beatiful sunsets going down.
We really enjoyed our holiday at Bru na mara and Connemara. Anytime again.

The "Honeysuite" Sonas of Bru-Na-Mara

The "Honeysuite" Sonas of Bru-Na-Mara
  • 5 of 5
You'll get a filled fridge for breakfast, a bottle of vine, everything is clean and made with so much love and originality. At Bru Na Mara you'll have the sweetest apartment you will get when you are on holidays in the west of Ireland.
Because we didn't find the way immediatly we've been guided in Carna to our little residence, where we stayed for the next 7 days.
The beautiful sight around the house and the great landscapes make amends of the car-tour from Dublin to Carna!
You also get a lot of informations and brochures of the villages and sightseeings around Carna and a map so you wont lose your way. There are a lot of things to visit like the Kylemore Abbey, the Connemara Nationalpark and the nice city Clifden with all its cute little shops. It really is worth the time to travel to all this places!

We will travel to this amazing place any time again and hope everbody else who decides making holidays at Bru Na Mara will share this opinion with us!

Bru-Na-Mara - something for everybody!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (including Grandparents, teenagers) enjoyed an excellent relaxing week in this beautiful part of Connemara. We chose (Mum chose) Bru-Na-Mara to hopefully satisfy everyones holiday needs; a base from which to explore the mountains and southern parts of Connemara and Arran Islands; shore side house to start the day with a swim; door step coastal walks for enjoying beaches, birds and wildlife. We were extremely fortunate with the weather and spent most of the sunny days on the local shore . The small sandy beach directly in front of the house would have been perfect for small children to enjoy but our big kids enjoyed swimming and jumping off rocks at high tide (perfect spot to enjoy some sea kayaking). Part of the charm of this house was enjoying the changes as the tide and local fishermen came in and out, sunny breakfasts at the picnic table outside the kitchen door and catching the last of the evening sun on the pier. The house and grounds were in great condition with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Riona and her family were very welcoming, helpful and informative, always to hand if needed but never intrusive. By the way the local shops, doctors and chemist in Carna were excellent, we had need of them several times that week. Although we didn't travel much from the local area we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this area of Connemara and hope to return in future.
