A fantastic house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in quite a few holiday homes over the past few years I can easily say that this was the best equipped and homely property I've stayed in. This house is perfect for friends and families to say in. The kids loved it. The house was really clean and all communications with Ann and Bibi were helpful and friendly.

We loved the fact that you can be the only people on the beaches and that the area is so remote and outstandingly beautiful at every new turn of the road. As well as the beaches we went to Clifden, Galway City, Kylemore and Roundstone for the for the day. The only thing I would say that could make the property even better is if there were actual directions including landmarks written down to get to the beaches; you can see them everywhere but can find yourself inadvertently on someones private drive trying to get to them!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. We have a map in the house showing the location of the local beaches but it is framed and on the wall.... and thats no good!!! I am going to make a separate print out of the same map for our guests to take with them in the car. Thank you for giving me the idea. We would love to welcome you back to sunny Connemara. It was a great summer for the beach.

"Lots of "little" touches...

  • 5 of 5

"Lots of "little" touches that mean a lot. Quiet, comfy, spotlessly clean, multiple bathrooms,etc, etc. Wonderfully kept house in beautiful area. Handy to shops, pubs, beaches, wonderful scenery, little-known historical (and prehistoric) sites, and within easy drive of some better known sites such as those around Lough Corrib. We had a great time, and the house made a most comfortable base for our visit."

Schönes, geräumiges Haus, gut ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt sehr günstig in der Nähe von drei Supermärkten und zwei Pubs. Landkarten und Informationen zum auffinden von Stränden und Sehenswürdigkeiten sind vorhanden. Das Haus ist gemütlich und technisch perfekt ausgestattet. Die Hausmeisterin war zuvorkommend und sehr nett.

Très agréable location

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines à Red Sails, ce qui nous a permis de sillonner le Connemara, à pied, en voiture, et en bateau pour aller passer des journées sur Inishmore et Inishboffin. La maison est formidable, confortable et parfaitement équipée pour au moins 6 adultes et 3 enfants. Nous recommandons vivement cette location à tous ceux qui veulent passer un séjour confortable, près de la mer, des lacs et des montagnes. La propriétaire et la personne qui s'occupe de la maison sont très agréables et prévenantes. En conclusion, un excellent rapport qualité/prix pour cette grande maison, un petit village très agréable avec les magasins nécessaires, une atmosphère typiquement irlandaise.
