Connemara House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Cottage, Located on the Quay with 'The Best View in Ireland'

Roundstone Rentals (www.roundstonerentals.ie) is proud to bring to you an exclusive self-catering property on the village quay in one of Ireland's most sought after holiday locations.

The Quay House has oil fired central heating, wireless broadband, satellite TV, free parking outside the door, hotel standard beds, linen and goose down duvets

The view from the living room and bedrooms, described as one of the best views in Ireland, is ever changing throughout the seasons. The cottage is located on the pier in the heart of the fishing village of Roundstone in the Connemara region, an area famous worldwide for its picturesque views, award-winning restaurants, fishing, walking and breathtaking beaches. O'Dowds Bar & Restaurant and Vaughan's Roundstone House Hotel, only metres from the house, serve award winning seafood throughout the season.

For those with kayaks or even their own boat, the cottage provide a fantastic base for your holiday where you can step outside your front door and into your boat, moored in the shelter of Roundstone Harbour.

Golden sand and crystal clear water can be found at Gurteen Beach and Dogs Bay, only 2 km away. These beaches are a mecca for swimming and beach combing during the summer months. Climb Errisbeg mountain behind the village and return for O'Dowd's famous seafood chowder, or locally picked mussels prior to a short stroll down the harbour to the luxury of the Quay House

Roundstone Rentals is a small family operated business. We own and manage the Quay properties and make every effort to ensure that our guests have a memorable holiday. We live nearby and are available to meet you on arrival to ensure that you get settled in.

great place to stay all you need is here.

  • 4 of 5
we got this place online and what a find.great place to stay haves all you need in the house.great views and very homely.just a few negatives for us was that everytime you opened the dishwasher door it would ketch the bottom plinth very irritating and the 2nd thing was that there was no room in the bathroom to put your shaving items and shampoos and we noticed the the main mirror had a few cracks in each corners which i am sure it could be replaced.and the last thing was make sure that you check the heating as we discovered that we was sharing it with the house next door!! so if you are paying for the oil just check it out!! dos not say anything on the rent agreement that you are sharing.but to be honest i will say that we was not charged for it.i think it should say that on the main web site so that you can see it clearly. we would go back as we enjoyed ourselves

Owner's Response: Dear Max
Thank you so much for your review, it is always great to get feedback from our guests so that we can work towards improving our visitors experience.
Now that the quiet season is upon us we will have time to repair the issues you mention with the dishwasher and the mirror, and put in some shelving in the bathroom on the middle floor. It is very difficult to carry out maintenance during the summer due to our high occupancy but every winter we put a lot of time and consideration into improving the house.
I do apologize once again that the notification regarding the set-up with the oil heating system, was not in place when you stayed. As you visited when the house next door was using the system for the first time this winter I had completely forgotten to put the sign in place, my mistake and we have since rectified this.
I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you to Roundstone again in the future.
With best wishes
Anne

Nous avons loué de nombreux appartements ou maisons, dans différents pays, et le Quay house de Roundstone est la meilleure maison que nous ayons loué. L'emplacement est parfait. A Roundstone, un très agréable petit port, qui permet de se promener dans tout le Connemara. La maison est à quelques minutes à pied du pub et des commerces. La vue depuis la large fenêtre du salon est magnifique, et la vue depuis les chambres à coucher est parfaite. L'équipement est excellente, cuisine, chambres, etc il ne manque rien. Toute la famille veut donc revenir bientôt! La propriétaire, Anne, est très sympathique et nous a donné quelques conseils utiles de promenade. Nous recommandons cette location à tous ceux qui ont envie de passe une semaine agréable et confortable dans le Connemara

I just returned from an incredible week at Quay House. The house is everything one would hope for but so much more. The house is clean, neat and well equipped. The view is indescribable, enough said. The village is quaint, friendly and fun! Roundstone was easy access to Clifton, Connemara National Park and Galway. We enjoyed going out during the day but cherished coming back to Quay House for the evening. McDowd's Pub an overwhelming favorite! You will not be disappointed staying at Quay House. In fact you won't want to leave!! Thank you Simon!

Well, for selfish reasons, I did not really want to write a review, as I want to be able to rent Simon's place whenever I like because I loved it so much. As most reviewers have also mentioned, the view from the bedrooms as well as the living area is breathtaking. We stayed for an entire week and all three of us were sad to leave. Roundstone is so quaint and beautiful, and the best part about the town is the locals. It's a vey low key environment, but we were there on the "off season", and low key was exactly what we were looking for. Everyone was so kind and friendly. Don't miss out on O'Dowd's fresh seafood! Thanks for sharing your place, and I'm sorry I ran off with your Ireland Friendly Planet book! We hope to return very soon.

My parents and I have been to Ireland four times and this is one of my favorite places. It is litteraly just off the harbour and the view from the front room and all the bedrooms is brilliant. You wake up every morning to the sea and a beautiful town. It's steps from restraunts, and a few little stores that sell everything you'd ever need.
We were there in November and one day some my dad was out and said "hi" to some fishermen taking the crab traps in, he came home with a bag of fresh crab claws as big as his hands.
The two front bedrooms have the best view and the bathroom on the second floor was huge. I love the way the house is designed as well.

My wife and I, accompanied by our two young children stayed here for 3 nights in early February. Despite being literally the only tourists in Roundstone we loved the entire experience! First and foremost, Simon's property was the highlight for us and by far our favorite self-catering property during our 2.5 week Ireland trip. The simple elegance of the decor, awesome kitchen, and amenities were all 5 star. This was the first property we have stayed with the kind of view that this property had. Completely unique, and a true taste of an authentic Irish fishing village.

The highlight for us was the continually changing scenery from the huge living room window, along with the fishing boats rising up and down with the tides. The open fireplace and ability to walk 30 seconds up the hill to replenish peat or firewood from one of the local stores was very cool. Although we planned to eat out, we ended up being inspired by the kitchen and view from it so made the easy drive up to the Supervalu in Clifden, which has everything you need. We did get take out from O'Dowd's on the last night and was impressed with the food.

Couple of recommendations - Connemara Smoke House (15 min drive from Roundstone) has amazing fresh or smoked fish at a great price. Lowry's in Clifden has a music session every Tuesday night. The secondary "interior" route to/from Clifden is spectacular and perfectly safe. Don't be put off by the primitive look of the road!

A great classy and clean property, a spectacular location, and definitely a place we will revisit in summer.
