Great house

  • 4 of 5

This property really impressed us. The location was great - very scenic - with a lovely small cove / beach close by. We brought our two dogs so the outbuilding was wonderful.

Its location close to Cleggan and Omey beach really suited us as we did not wish to stay in Clifden .

The house was very very comfortable - and very well equipped with good quality equipment.

The lady who manages the property was most helpful and only a phonecall away - we will definitely be renting this property again next summer.

Great family get away.

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and only seconds to the beach. It has everything you could ask for and if you have forgotten something Sweeney's is only a few minutes away with pub, restarant and market. An absolute must for the quiet getaway.

Warm Modern Clean Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bedrock during July14. The house is superbly equipped and very clean – we had an infant with us so this was paramount – we has no worries at all in this house. A real comfy yet modern building that is laid out with great thought and attention to detail. The table tennis room is good when weather turns wet. Unlike a lot of houses in area (of which we have stayed in many over the years) this house really feels like a nice holiday home - and not an overused/rented investment property. Really looking forward to getting back to Aughrusbeg next year – we will be booking this house/home again. A great spot in a wonderful part of the world.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with a very comfortable feel, plenty of space and all you need provided. The location is beautiful and peaceful with great sea views and is just a short walk to some small sandy beaches. There is a well-stocked shop in Claddaghduff and plenty of life in Clifden. The owner was very helpful and easy to deal with - we would love to visit again.
