Why Mary chose Connemara

At the end of the day, perhaps after a day's hiking, or a day trip to Westport, or a day at the beach, relax on the wooden patio and enjoy the tranquility as you watch the sun set over Tully lake.

What makes this apartment unique

Knock airport (about 1 hour 10 minutes from Tullycross) now has regular flights from Dusseldorf, Barcelona (Girona), Milan (Bergamo), as well as numerous UK airports. Tullycross now only a hen's kick from you! Sitting on the patio watching the sun go down over Renvyle will gladden your heart.

an amazing place for complete relaxing in Connemara

  • 5 of 5

We had have ten wonderful days at Mary`s flat in Tullycross. For our welcome we `ve got flowers, fruits and a bottle of wine, a very warm welcome and all informations, we had to know. The flat is very well equipped, so you will miss really nothing. Sitting at our table for having breakfast or barbecue at the patio, looking at the hill with an amazing cow gathering, hearing the birds singing is holidays at its best. In a really short walking distance you find Paddy`s pub, a wonderful place for having a pint of Guinness, meating locals, hearing music and getting really good food. So, what do you need more? Renvyle is an amazing peninsula with wonderful beaches and close to Connemara National Parc at Letterfrack and Clifden. We hope to be back soon! Thousand thank you to Mary and Vince

A cosy holiday home

  • 5 of 5

For three weeks we had a lovely time in Mary's flat in Tullycross. Although we arrived late at night, we were warmly welcomed by our hosts, there was a turf fire burning and Mary had made a tasty carrot cake for us. This was a lot of comfort after a long journey through darkness and rain on roads where sheep were sleeping... The flat is bigger than it looks on the photos and for us (2 adults, one six year old child) it was perfectly sized. We had everything we needed and if something was missing our hosts were always there to help us out. The big windows towards Tully Mountain bring in a lot of sunshine - we were lucky to have had quite a lot of it. We also enjoyed sitting on the new wooden terrace in the rocking chairs and on some evenings we had wonderful sunsets. We definitely would recommend this flat to friends or relatives. We enjoyed having the local pub within walking distance - the food and the atmosphere there were great. There are several beautiful beaches nearby, especially Glassilaun Beach is a dream. We will also remember our walk to the top of Diamond Hill - the view was fantastic - but on our way down we were almost eaten up by the midges.

As a whole I think it is difficult to find a better place for holidays in this part of Connemara.

Séjour formidable avec cottage moderne et lumineux

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans le cottage de Mary RUDY.

Il est très propre, moderne, cosy, lumineux, bien équipé et ce qui fait toute la différence, c'est la chaleur de l'accueil de Mary et Vincent qui nous indiqués ce qu'il ne fallait pas rater dans cette si belle région du Connemara, de ses magnifiques montagnes et de ses splendides plages, de ses paysages à couper le souffle avec des lumières extraordinaires.

Merci à vous Mary et Vincent qui avaient pris le temps de répondre à toutes nos questions et de satisfaire notre curiosité concernant la vie des Irlandais, les habitudes, la musique Irlandaise, etc.

Assurément notre plus belle et plus agréable destination à l'étranger.

Owner's Response: Translation: Wonderful experience with bright and modern cottage We spent a wonderful week in the cottage of Mary. It is very clean, modern, cozy, bright, and well equipped but what makes the real difference is the warm welcome from Mary and Vincent who kindly identified places and events we should not miss in this beautiful region of Connemara, its magnificent mountains and its beautiful beaches, its breathtaking landscapes with extraordinary lights. Thank you to Mary and Vincent who took the time to answer all our questions and satisfy our curiosity about the lives of Irish customs, Irish music, etc.. Certainly our most beautiful and enjoyable destination abroad. Lawrence, Christine, Ivan and Sarah

Perfect cozy getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This particular area of Ireland feels very isolated and has a character all of its own... indeed the very charm of Connemara. The property housed all 6 of us (3 couples) very easily and with an abundant sense of space. The living areas are very cozy indeed and the bedrooms all comfortable and with tasteful decor.

There are a few places nearby to eat and socialise, the bar up the road offered lovely food and traditional Irish hospitality, we were in our element.

We wanted for nothing.
