About the property

1 Bedroom Self-catering Penthouse Apartment With Panoramic Sea Views

This is an exclusive self-catering luxurious property situated in the middle of Roundstone village. If you require a different sea view every time you look out your window, this is the apartment for you.

The Ard View apartment has plenty of free parking outside the door and there is free WIFI available. It has oil fired central heating, a beautiful hand-crafted kitchen, all modern appliances, a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and a large flat screen television.

The bedroom which possesses a very comfortable queen sized bed has the very best quality linen. This luxurious apartment boasts its very own Jacuzzi bath; the perfect place to relax after the numerous beach and hill walks which surround the beautiful village of Roundstone. Indeed, the world famous Dogs Bay and Gurteen beaches are less than 2 km from the village - both beaches boast miles of golden sand, crystal clean waters and are a swimmer's delight.

Situated a few metres from Roundstone House Hotel (Vaughan's) and O'Dowd's Seafood Bar and Restaurant, this apartment couldn't be more centrally located.

What better way to finish off your evening than taking your glass of wine onto the balcony and watching the boats return to the harbour with their catch of the day. Pure heaven!

(During High Season, rentals are from Saturday to Saturday).

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this apartment. We arrived in Roundstone on a beautiful sunny evening in April. The view from the apartment that evening was simply breathtaking. The apartment itself was everything that we expected it to be. We found it to be comfortable, well maintained and most of all - warm. We never once had to worry about heating. By some magical means the temperatures were always perfect. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had an endless supply of hot water. In general it was like a home away from home.

Ard View is perfectly placed to enjoy the best of Connemara. We had a fabulous week here, walking on beaches, over bogs, cliffs and generally felt rejuvenated after our break. We felt totally at home in this apartment and want to thank Ann for the opportunity to stay here. We didn't want to leave.

Roundstone is a beautiful village where we found the local people friendly and welcoming. Ann's daughter Orla, ably assisted by Teresa run the cafe underneath the apartment and it's one of the many pleasant places to eat in Roundstone. We thoroughly enjoyed picking somewhere to eat at night and taking a stroll there after our action packed days.

This place is a little gem and we will certainly return.

Thank you Ann.

Unique & Charming - Rate 6 stars - not only 5

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely unique !

You feel like in a luxury lighthouse, overlooking the world :-)

Decorated in a very good taste, furnished with care and equipped with comforts – from the kitchen to the Jacuzzi (an original Jacuzzi – no cheap copy…)

Weather was not stimulation for long walks – but the more we did enjoy the cosy and warm accommodation!

To view the bay and the islands – and in sunny spells the mountains – is very calming and relaxing. And that’s what we look for, when we visite Ireland.....

There is nothing we missed: Incredible views, warm and cosy – and a superfast Wifi for the in between business-purposes ….

We hope, that when we once visit Roundstone-region again, the apartment is vacant !!

Our recommandation for all Roundstone-Visitors:

Enjoy one of the marvellous Cakes at the Bogbean-Café – and the Fishermans-platter at O´Dowds restaurant. Excellent taste!

Spend 2-3 hours for a walk at nearby Gurteen and Dogs-beach.

Unique scenery with the graveyard close to the beach.

And excellent for relaxing !

Ann, many thanks for all - and many greetings to the busy and charming girls in the Bogbean-Café and O´Dowds !

Lovely Penthouse Apartment with Gorgeous Views in a Nice, Friendly Town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed there for 4 nights this winter. The apartment is clean, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The views are outstanding. There is a deck off the kitchen that would be great to use in the summer time. The kitchen has all the hardware you need to make your meals. The town of Roundstone is beautiful, and the people were very friendly. As it was winter, most of the restaurants in town were closed and I was concerned that we might be stuck eating pub grub all week, but knew we had a kitchen if we wanted to eat something else. I didn't need to worry. O'Dowd's across and down the street is a wonderful pub and restaurant. We ate there every night and enjoyed every meal. I particularly recommend the fisherman's platter. We enjoyed our stay so much we're thinking of coming back this summer and staying for a couple of weeks.

Amazing Views from "Ard View" Penthouse Apt.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this amazing apartment with its absolutely spectacular views for a week over the busy Roundstone Regatta weekend in July last summer. I know, I'm writing my review months later, but this apartment and the hospitality offered by Orla and her housekeeper warrant a review of some sort, even a late one at that. We both loved the space! It's a bit of a trek up the stairs, but worth every step as the view is panoramic. We both appreciated the small balcony and spent many hours sitting in the fresh air watching the Galway Hookers race across Roundstone Bay. The kitchen has everything, even cooking oil and spices. A small grocery store is directly across the street. Several excellent restaurants line the quaint main street of the village. I highly recommend this apartment.

Beautiful Penthouse with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent a week in this lovely comfortable apartment, it's all that the description says it is and more. Lots of little extra touches that were much appreciated (love the china sheep on the kitchen worktop!). having dishwasher tablets, kitchen rolls & tissues etc. was also very helpful. Very comfortable bed with quality linens and pillows. The all round views are stunning, watching the sunrise from the kitchen is a view to remember. We struggled to think of any improvements to Ard View, the only minor things we could think of was perhaps a wall clock in the lounge/kitchen area and a plastic beaker in the bathroom for use as a tooth mug as I was worried about having to use a glass tumbler from the kitchen. We didn't meet Ann during our stay but were looked after very well by her daughter Orla who owns & runs The Bogbean B&B & Café which is below the apartment. She was always ready to answer any questions and give suggestions about trips in the surrounding area. The village of Roundstone is delightful, very friendly people with plenty of nice places to eat & drink. Would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Connemara.

Very cosy and spectular views

  • 5 of 5

This flat is a great place for a couples and families. We were there with our 1 y. o. son. The view of the bay is amazing; you can watch it while having breakfast. The apartment is very well equipped (tv, washing machine, drying machine, coffea maker, kooking stuff, etc.) and the decoration is lovely.

Ann, the owner, and her daughter were very helpful in everything. They gave as a cot for our baby and even DVDs to watch, as well as assisting us in everything we needed.

We had a wonderful time, both resting and exploring the area of Connemara from Roundstone (beautiful cosy village, by the way).
