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.

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!!

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.

Relaxing and quiet haven!

We needed a week of peace and quiet away from the madding crowd and we couldn't have chosen better. Dara is a well-equipped, recently renovated, top-notch spacious house with its own sitting-out area overlooking the pier in a most beautiful part of Ireland. Days were spent doing scenic drives, poking around Clifden and wandering along the many sandy beaches in the area, getting the sea air in our lungs and just generally relaxing. Riona was a gracious hostess who gave us lots of info on where to go and what to do and nothing was too much trouble. We watched the tides come in, and go out. I watched the seabirds on the islands and rocks with my telescope, and chatted with the local cows. A veritable haven of tranquillity. The busiest activity that we saw there was the fishermen preparing their boats...We loved it - Very highly recommended.
