With only four short days to visit Connemara, a friend and I rented Atlantic vista to serve as the home base for our time in Counties Galway and Mayo. While not out seeing the sights, and there are plenty within a reasonable drive, we spent our mornings having breakfast and tea gazing at the ocean from the kitchen and our evenings watching DVDs in the living room with a fire burning and again gazing at the sea.
The cottage was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with the necessary tools, dishes and pots/pans (I recommend a visit to the market in nearby Letterfrack for groceries and wine, though I picked up a nice preseasoned chicken to bake from the Lidl grocery store in Clifden as well). There is a fun and eclectic mix of CDs to listen to while in the kitchen or living room but after a few days you may be wishing for a few of your own. Snow Patrol was great for background music and Andrew CD (you'll know it when you see it) was a fun surprise. There's also a mix of DVDs available to watch but again you may want to bring your own.
My only regret was that the weather wasn't a bit drier so that we could have enjoyed sitting outdoors more. When the sun peaked out it gave the views a whole new look. I will most definitely plan a trip back to this location in the near future. It's a winner!
