On the edge of the sea

  • 5 of 5
Riona is a perfect host for this lovely property.
As a retired teacher, she brings a wealth of knowledge to guests and friends who are seeking adventure in Connemara. The apartment is welcoming - Riona provided us with fresh eggs, butter, cheese, a bottle of wine and fantastic Irish bread to start us off on our discovery of the west side of Ireland. Connemara smokehouse is not far and worth a visit, as are the little seaside towns nearby. The house is equipped with laundry facilities and internet/tv for chilly evenings.
Don't miss the rare coral beaches in the area!

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!

Perfect week at the sea!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in "Aoibhneas" for one week this August and had a very wonderful week in beautiful Connemara. Riona is a great hostess and we felt welcome from the first moment on.
The apartment has 2 sleeping rooms, a living room, a small kitchen and a bathroom with shower - all nicely decorated and super clean and with views towards the sea and/or the mountains. We were welcomed with wine, cheese, eggs, butter, milk and bread - a perfect start for a week or more off.
Riona also provided us with alot of information about trips in the area and was ever so helpful.
We loved the fact that Bru Na Mara is directly by the sea and we could just leave the house, sit outside and watch the tides come and go.
Who had not yet been to Connemara, should go at once! For we fell in love with the beauty of the countryside, the great views, the coulds and sheep!
Thank you, Riona and Birdie, for everything!

Location Bru Na Mara (3 personnes)

  • 5 of 5
Excellente semaine passée dans cette location située près d'un tout petit port, dans un endroit calme et reposant. L'appartement à l'étage de la maison principale est très bien aménagé et décoré avec beaucoup de gout. Riona (la propriétaire) et sa soeur nous ont réservé un accueil très chaleureux. Riona a pris le temps de nous expliquer tout ce qui était à voir dans le Connémara. Nous avons apprécié sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. A recommander sans hésitation.

Planning my next trip!

  • 5 of 5
My first real trip to Ireland could not have been better and that has much to do with Riona and her lovely accommodations by the sea. Their home and a couple of cottages are at the end of a road overlooking the sea. Beautiful views out every window and such a clean house and grounds.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment on the second level of the home. Riona and a friend had redone the interior to a fresh and comfortable modern style. She takes pride in the bed, sheets, and duvet cover as well as the comfort of all of her guests.
She knew we were tired upon our arrival so agreed to come in the morning to review maps and her proud recommendations of what to explore in Connemara.
I am planning to go back with my husband as soon as we get some time off. I highly recommend this spot and Riona is an amazing hostess.

Ireland from it´s pristine view

  • 5 of 5
First of all: Many thanks to the owner of the holiday rental. Riona gave us a very warm welcome as we arrived after a long drive from Dublin. Her advices for activities were very helpful for us. The rooms were very clean and equiped as discripted. The view to the sea is marvellous and invited us to several walks without taking care about the weather.
The bottom line is: If your looking for tranquility paired with the experience of irish nature:
That´s the place you´re looking for!
