Amazing!

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!

I wish I could return every year

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.

FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
FANTASTIC!!!!! Everything about Quay House is wonderful - the location is heavenly. What a view to wake up to each morning - just stunning. The house itself is very clean, modern, and so comfortable. What fun to just walk a few yards and right into a great pub! We met so many nice folks in the village - locals and tourists alike. Quay House was a great base for our day trips - Kylemore Abbey was a great favorite!!!! It was fun to try the different ways of getting to Clifden. We wanted to slow down time a bit, as our week flew by much too quickly. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet Simon, as he and his family were away on holiday, but he left us in good hands. The housekeeper was just a phone call away, if we had needed assistance. It was a wonderful holiday and I highly recommend Quay House!

A thoroughly delightful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed at the Fishing Cottage for a week in early April 2013. This was our first visit to Ireland, and we chose Connemara as our destination after seeing the Fishing Cottage listed online. On arriving there, we were delighted with our choice. The cottage was comfortable, clean, and well equipped, with many thoughtful, homey touches. The view was spectacular, even from indoors. At that time of year, there wasn't much activity in the harbor, and the nights were completely silent. It was cold in early April, so we kept the heat going all the time. Our utility bill was about $100, which we considered well worth it. The stairs to the 2nd and 3rd floors were fairly steep, but we didn't find this to be a problem. The half bath on the 3rd floor was particularly convenient. The owner, Simon Ashe, was extremely friendly and helpful, especially when I developed a back problem that required a trip to a doctor. We could not have wished for a nicer landlord.

Just a few yards away from the Fishing Cottage is O'Dowd's Pub, which has a friendly waitstaff, nice ambience, and even vegetarian options. Roundstone is convenient to Shannon Airport, Galway City, The Burren, the Aran Islands, and many other points of interest. The town has a small grocery store, a charming gift shop/bodhran shop (Roundstone Music and Crafts), and a handful of other restaurants and businesses. Only a short drive away is Clifden, Connemara's largest town, which offers a wide variety of stores, restaurants, and cultural events.

We loved everything about the Fishing Cottage, Roundstone, and Ireland in general, and we now look back on our stay there with the fondest of memories.
