BRU NA MARA

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place! Cottage was lovely, clean, well equiped and charming. Owner was helpful and very kind. Safe for children. Property is walled so children can't get down to the shore very easy. Lovely place for walking. Beautiful sandy beach nearby. Highly recommended restaurant/bar/craft place within 5mins drive (Glynsk House). Bridget's Garden's (near Oughterard) is also a great place to visit if you have children. Rural, need a car.

WUNDERSCHÖN

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten zwei wunderschöne Wochen. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, liegt direkt an einem kleinen Hafen (Macepier). Das lauteste Geräusch ist das der Wellen.
Riona ist eine gute Gastgeberin. Wer Ruhe sucht, ist hier gut aufgehoben.
Thank you, Riona

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen in Carna im Haus ANNA verbracht. Das Cottage liegt direkt am Meer, am idyllischen Hafen von Macepier. Das Häuschen ist liebevoll ausgestattet und Riona Connolly war eine wunderbare Gastgeberin. Wer einmal richtig entspannen möchte, ist hier genau richtig.
Thanmk you, Riona.

FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely little cottage. It is literally at then end of the road and well worth it! It was perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Riona was a font of information! She also stocked our fridge with breakfast things...very nice touch. We did try out one of the walks/hikes she suggested and it was beautiful. We had no problem getting anywhere we wanted to go. We went to Kylemore, Galway, Connemara, and to some of the smaller islands. The local pub was nice, decent food and traditional music on Friday. The grocers in town had everything we needed to stock our kitchen and everyone was so friendly. Local football game one night. Good grief, I think the entire village was there! It was wonderful! Wish we never had to leave.

NICE GETAWAY COTTAGE BY THE SEA

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 8 nights at the cottage in June 2011 and enjoyed our visit. The cottage is perfect for 2 people with nice views of the seacoast and our host Riona was a delightful person and abundant source of local sightseeing information. The facilities for self catering, cooking, etc. were quite sufficient. Beds were comfortable and roomey and the bathroom modern and well equipped. The location is definietly at the end of the road, a big plus if you want to get away and enjoy the seacoast, but may be a bit of a drive if you plan to spend time out and about everyday in Connemara (village of Carna just 10 minutes away). Some self catering homes we've stayed in do not expect guest to clean home when leaving, but this one does.

SEHR GEPFLEGTES FH IN SPEKTAKULÄRER LANDSCHAFT

  • 5 of 5
Das Ferienhaus direkt am Meer ist in sehr gepflegtem Zustand und innen mit freundlichen Farben gestaltet. In der näheren und weiteren Umgebung gibt es so viele interessante Ausflugsziele, dass wir sie in den 10 Tagen unseres Aufenthalts gar nicht alle ansteuern konnten.
Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und hat uns viele nützliche Tipps zusätzlich zu den Prospekten in der umfangreichen Info-Mappe für Tagestouren gegeben.
Super Lage ca. 20 m vom Meer entfernt, absolut kein Verkehrslärm, nur manchmal heult der Wind um das Haus. Spaziergang entlang der Küste direkt vom Haus aus möglich.
Auch für Menschen, die nicht mit Kaminheizung heizen möchten geeignet, weil Ölzentralheizung vorhanden. Haus war bei unserer Ankunft angenehm warm und es war Heizmaterial für den Kamin vorhanden.
Ganz kleiner Wermutstropfen bei längeren Schlechtwetterperioden: Wohn-Ess-Zimmer hat etwas wenig Tageslicht.
