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!

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

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!

Connemara discovery

  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We have been warmly welcomed by Riona at Bru na mara. She gave us much information about visits to do and the pathways to know. All sites or restaurants she indicated were very nice.
The cottage is comfortable and well equiped (free wifi available on request).
Bru na mara is lovely located on the seafront, beside a tiny harbour, at the end of the road (and of the connemara!). It's a wonderful place.
If you want to enjoy the real connemara you have to take tiny pathways, to cross fences (walking or driving and when it's authorized!) to go along the loughs. It's the best place ever to see the beauty of landscapes.

Riona thank you for your welcome! I hope I have not made too many mistakes in English
