Smashing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, peaceful property just 5 minutes away from Clifton with its numerous shops, bars and restaurants. The property was clean, tidy and had everything you needed to enjoy a stay. It is an excellent base from which to explore the Connemara National Park and beyond. Mary is a lovely host, and I wouldn't fail to recommend her and Glenbricken Lodge.

First class property. House was spotless on our arrival, a real credit to Mary the owner. From the peat burning stoves to the views over the Lough and the varied wildlife we had a brilliant week. Property is ideal for getting away from it all but at the same time is close to Clifden for supermarkets,petrol,pubs etc etc. Well placed for touring the many back roads of Connemara. Galway is an hour away by car, well worth a visit. House has many little extras that you normally don't have when you rent a property. I rate this property 10/10. You will not be disappointed.

La maison est idéalement située, en plein coeur du Connemara, à 5 minutes de Clifden.

des propriétaires très discrets.

idéale pour ceux qui recherchent le calme! la vue est imprenable sur le lac et la campagne environnante, entourée de moutons, chevaux...

La maison est spacieuse et lumineuse. (un seul bémol sur le manque de vaisselle).

un conseil: n'oubliez pas une bonne paire de jumelles pour observer les cerfs au bord du lac.

nous y avons passé un excellent séjour.

Car: necessary

Head north on Westport Road/N59, Continue to follow N59 for 3km. Take the first right immediately after the sign for Claddaghduff. Follow the road for

1km and you will see the house on your right.

Convenient to beaches, fishing, horse riding, golfing, hiking, and Clifden town with many bars and restaurants and supermarkets.
