I enjoy gardening,walking and hill walking.
Eileen Noonan Connolly purchased this house in 2013
I designed this house 15 years ago with a Eco concept with the help of my beloved husband Josie who died in 2004 and I have slowly worked on the house till it's completion this July 2013.
It is a dream house beside the sea where you can experience the solitude and beauty of Connemara.
We have rented houses all over the world. But we must say that Teach
Greine clearly is one of our favorites. The house promises, what the
photos show. The location and the views are incredible. We could see a
seal every day. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything is very
clean. Eileen is not only a very welcoming host, but has even stocked
the fridge. We enjoyed our stay very much. Teach Greine is a wonderful
starting point to explore Connemara and definitely worth a trip.
The new, bright and perfectly equipped house is situated in a superb landscape right at the sea, pure nature: no noise but always a nice seabreeze. Eileen Connolly is a very warm, friendly and interesting person who makes your stay really comfortable. We had a beautiful week with plenty of lovely weather and know that we want to come back. Thanks a lot. Daniel
We spent a very nice week in Connemara end April.
We have very appreciated the very clean & quiet house, located 15m to the sea and more particularly:
In the living room :
- The unique & splendid view to Errisbeg, Roudstone, the bay and the twelves Bens...
- The bay & sunset observation area (bow-window of the living room)
- The fireplace
The wide kitchen & dining area was also perfect for cooking & dining.
I have very appreciated all the flyers, touristic guides and the detailed maps, made available by Eilleen to prepare our daily visits: Lough Bolea, lough aliggan Moyrus Beach & Carna; Roundstone , errisbeg & the gorteen bay; Kylemore Abey; Killary harbour, Leenane & the Aasleagh Falls; the Connemara National Parc , the 12 bens & Diamond Hill; Omey Island; the bog road & Ballyconnelly bay; Clifton , the shopping and the sky road; the landing site of Alcock & Brown in Derrigimlach.
Post Office, Petrol & Food are available in Carna and in Clifden.
Conclusion : A perfect house and a wonderful region for nature lovers.
The house was nice, warm and cosy. Eileen one of the nicest people. Thanks for that. We had a great time, beautifull weather, the greatest sun down. Overall: if you are looking for some time away from every days madness, internet and hectic: it coudn't be better.
Wir waren eine Woche zu sechst im Haus und haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Alles ist wirklich top sauber, schön eingerichtet und die Vorräte sind eine wirkliche Bereicherung. Eileen tut alles, damit man sich wohl fühlt.
Die Lage ist der absolute Hammer für Ruhesuchende. Die Aussicht ist unbezahlbar!
Wir kommen sicher wieder!
The cottage is well situated by the sea, with a beautiful view on the bay and Connemara mountains. The house is comfortable with large rooms, clean, and well decorated with nice paintings. We had a very pleasant welcome, the owner is really a very nice person (as much as most of Irish people, that's the reason why we love them and their country). We were sory about only one thing: not beeing able to speak English better (luckyly, one ff us could speak English better thanks to his irish origins).
Unforgettable holidays for all of us. Thank you very much, Eileen.

I spent my second holidays at the Irish West Coast and again in the beautiful property "Teach Greine". I think that´s the most significant point of all ;-)
Eileen did everything to make our stay *perfect*. We missed literally nothing and would absolutely recommend booking this housing for your next stay in Ireland!
Thanks Eileen - I´m sure this wasn´t the last time we visited you!
There is a scenic walk from the house with splendid views of the Twelve Bens mountain range and magnificent Bertraghboy Bay and on a good sunny evening there are majestic west of Ireland sunsets. Experience the tranquility of the local beach in Moyrus. A drive to Kylemore Abbey & Victorian walled gardens is a must. The Connemara National Park is well worth a visit. The harbour village of Roundstone can be been seen across the bay,which is an artist haven, and the nearby splendid beaches of Gurteen and Dogs Bay are another must-see. Clifden, the main town in Connemara has lots to offer including craft shops, restaurants, walks ,museum and the Sky Road drive is worth it for the views.
