Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I have rented this house a number of times over the past years . The house is a modern and very well equipped property with the added bonus that it is quite large. The kitchen is particularly well equipped so if any of your party want to cook using the beautiful local meats and fish then all the facilities you need are available.

The house is located about 15 mins from the local market town of Clifden where there is a selection of good shops and Bars. There is also a very good supermarket in the local village of Letterfrack which is 10 mins away.

We have brought a boat with us on our holidays and there is plenty of space along the side of the house to park it . You are within easy reach of all of the major amenities that Connemara has to offer, you are in the heart of Connemara.

Finally , the owners of the property are incredibly helpful and have extensive local knowledge of the area should you need any help or information.

Wonderful house with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Four family members stayed here for a week and we had a great holiday. The house was clean and all the bedrooms being ensuite was a great bonus. The whole house was spacious, plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck having breakfast overlooking the mountains and sea loughs.

Everywhere is easy to get to and Connemara National Park is minutes away in the car and well worth a visit. There is also beautiful Kylemore Abbey, tidal Omney Island, a ferry trip to Inishbofin, fantastic beaches and great places to eat in the nearby towns

Janet and Aedan, the owners, couldn't have been more helpful. There is a fantastic book collection to choose from.

I would definitely recommend a stay in this house. Our weather wasn't great but it did not take away from the relaxing holiday we all had.

Fantastic Holiday Home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful comfortable house this is. It is like a home from home only better equipped than most homes. The kitchen is supberb - a chef's dream. The views from the house are so stunning that you could easily just do nothing but look our the window. I stayed there when the weather was mid wintery and mid summery all in the space of two weeks. The house was beautifully warm - albeit with heating on for a large portion of the day. The deck outside was fantastic when the weather was up to the late teens (18-19 even 20C). Janet has gone to such trouble to make sure that a visitor has everything ty need. Her bookshelf is so well stocked that it resembles a mini library. Hundreds of books all organised into categories and genres. Very comfortable bedrooms, all ensuite. Ideal for entertaining large groups of people in lavish style. I can't rate this house highly enough and I look forward to returning very soon.

a house that just missed being great

  • 4 of 5

this house ticked nearly all the boxes.large bedrooms all ensuite. Great kitchen,well open fire with 1st supply of fuel free.just a few things that could be improved.water heating was by imersion heater & was charged extra.we were told there would be enough for our needs if we turned it on for an hour at night & an hour in the morning. This was not the case & the water always ran cold.if we had used as much as we needed the cost would have been excessive. Also the sofas & chairs in the sitting room were support & very low to the ground.all furniture needs modernizing. The area was very scenic & Cleggan harbour is worth a visit. Fresh fish & lobster can be had when the boats come in.the kids loved the national parks playground.

Great place to be... and to come back

  • 5 of 5

Janet et Aedan, nos hôtes logeant en rez-de-jardin, nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement : ils ont su être disponibles lors de nos demandes tout en restant très discrets pendant notre séjour : nous étions chez nous ! Aedan aime sa région et sait faire partager sa passion et prodiguant conseils et astuces.

La maison de plein-pied est spacieuse et très bien équipée avec une cuisine digne d'un Grand Chef, un salon chaleureux, une bibliothèque fournie et des chambres qui ont toutes leur propre salle de bains. La maison est idéalement située et bénéficie d'une vue panoramique sur les couleurs changeantes de la mer et des montagnes du Connemara. Nous avons même pu voir des lapins et un cerf depuis la cuisine.

Cet hébergement situé entre Clifden et Letterfrack permet de jouir des plaisirs de ces deux villes (pubs, restaurants, magasins, animations saisonnières). C'est aussi un camp de base idéal pour rayonner dans tout le Connemara (Cong, Innishbofin, Killemore Abbey, Twelve Bens, Roundstone, Killary, etc ...).

C'est une adresse à retenir pour revenir en famille, ou même entre amis.

Thanks to Aedan and Janet's hospitality, our all family had greatly enjoyed staying in Connemara.

Simplement merveilleux

  • 5 of 5

Une très grande maison particulièrement confortable, spacieuse et étonnamment bien équipée. Il ne manque rien et s'il manque quelque chose, demandez à Aidan ou Janet, les propriétaires aussi prévenants que sympathiques et chaleureux. Ce séjour dans ce superbe logement est rendu plus agréable encore par la proximité de ceux ci. Ils nous ont comblés. Petit détail, je suis en fauteuil roulant et toutes les pièces sont bien adaptées en particulier la merveilleuse cuisine...

Si on y ajoute la superbe vue par de larges et nombreuses baies, que souhaiter de plus?

Janet et Aidan, encore merci aussi pour les huitres et le saumon généreusement proposés.

Si nous pouvions revenir...
