Peacefull and charming place on the Irish seaside

  • 5 of 5
We spend one week in the comfy Bru Na Mara house. We were 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids). The house is large and cozy. The place leads us to walk away in very beautifull countryside and seaside. Thanks to Riona's advise, we also visit places we'd probably miss otherwise. The coast is just amazing and we will keep in mind for a long time some really beautifull pictures of the irsih beauty.

Welcoming, calming, charming, beautiful

  • 5 of 5
Bru na Mara is just as as the information we found online. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and welcoming Having the fridge stocked with a few essentials was most helpful. Rionna is a wonderful host! The moment we mentioned that we are birders and interested in the local flowers, she handed us a folder with all the information we were hoping for. as well as maps, and the inside info all travelers love about the Connemara area. We had a magical visit on the Emerald Isle in large part, thanks to Rionna!!

beauty by the sea

  • 5 of 5
This is a little gem on the sea!
If you are looking for a warm, welcoming home away-from-home with all of the essentials, this holiday home is for you! Perfect for those who want a home base for exploring the stunning beauty of Connemara. Bring your GPS and vehicle to discover the Irish landscape! Riona is an expert guide with knowledge of local sights, amazing culinary finds and interesting things to do. We stayed in Aoibhneas - a generous 2-room apartment in the main house equipped with a full kitchen, living room and bath.
The views from the apartment look out over the sea and the rock-lined pastures behind the house. This is a great spot for young families and couples who want to see the real side of Ireland!

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.
