About the property

Luxury Cottage, Located on the Quay with 'The Best View in Ireland'

Roundstone Rentals ( is proud to bring to you an exclusive self-catering property on the village quay in one of Ireland's most sought after holiday locations.

The Quay House has oil fired central heating, wireless broadband, satellite TV, free parking outside the door, hotel standard beds, linen and goose down duvets

The view from the living room and bedrooms, described as one of the best views in Ireland, is ever changing throughout the seasons. The cottage is located on the pier in the heart of the fishing village of Roundstone in the Connemara region, an area famous worldwide for its picturesque views, award-winning restaurants, fishing, walking and breathtaking beaches. O'Dowds Bar & Restaurant and Vaughan's Roundstone House Hotel, only metres from the house, serve award winning seafood throughout the season.

For those with kayaks or even their own boat, the cottage provides a fantastic base for your holiday where you can step outside your front door and into your boat, moored in the shelter of Roundstone Harbour.

Golden sand and crystal clear water can be found at Gurteen Beach and Dogs Bay, only 2 km away. These beaches are a mecca for swimming and beach combing during the summer months. Climb Errisbeg mountain behind the village and return for O'Dowd's famous seafood chowder, or locally picked mussels prior to a short stroll down the harbour to the luxury of the Quay House

Roundstone Rentals is a small family operated business. We own and manage the Quay properties and make every effort to ensure that our guests have a memorable holiday. We live nearby and are available to meet you on arrival to ensure that you get settled in.

spacious comfortable house in brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

Three great bedrooms, two with stunning views. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area with effective central heating and the option of an open fire. Plenty of games, jigsaws etc but disappointed there was no DVD player as expected. Great pub in easy walking distance, recommend food. A great base to explore the area, incredible views. Lowry’s bar and Mannion’s are a ‘must’ to visit in Clifden for food and live music. A fantastic holiday!

Perfect in every way! House was clean and very efficient!

  • 5 of 5

Simon and Anne had everything ready for us. The house was clean, adorable, and in a perfect location for day trips and walks throughout the town. It is still off season so not much open in Roundstone but O'Dowd's served excellent and reasonable meals. Mary is a gem. Clifden was a short ride and we listened to live music a few nights in the pubs. We loved, loved, loved our trip to Roundstone and staying at Quay House.
