Very complete and cozy

  • 5 of 5

A very hospitable welcome by the housekeeper with fresh crab and a hand to prepare them immediately made the important first impression.

We found a very satisfactory house, tastfully decorated with a lot beachfindings and very cozy. Makes you feel at home immediately. A great stock of books, booklets and maps about the surroundings of the house. Very useful with discovering nature and culture of Connemara. The presence of many books in the house makes one feel at home anyway.

Also a very complete kitchen with all the utensils you need. And a very good stock of cooking ingredients too.

A loose wallmount of one shower was really the only thing that needed improvement. Still, this could not spoil our fantastic stay in this fantastic home.

Finally, the location was great: close enough to the main road to reach other parts of Connemara quickly, far away enough from this road to enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings. Just across the main road another small road leads to a beautiful and quiet, small beach with graveyard within 2 minutes. Truly a super location!

Owner's Response: Dear Marion and Ron, Thank you so much for taking time to write such a nice review about your stay in our little cottage. We are so pleased that you highlight the fantastic welcome you got from Mélanie: we are very lucky to have her as our friend and homekeeper. She certainly has to be praised for the immediate good feeling and it is most important for us that our guests enjoy every single minute they spend in Connemara. This is also why our exchanges by email before your stay were important for us: knowing what our guests are looking for is essential for us so that we can point to "custom-fitted" activities. Thank you also to you for mentioning the "technical" problem with the shower: it has now been fixed! More improvements will be made to the cottage during the winter time, including a proper third bedroom upstairs...

Ein wunderschönes Haus mitten im Moor

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als 4köpfige Familie hier und haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Das Haus ist gemütlich und gut ausgestattet. Besonders gefallen hat uns der offene Kamin. Wir haben ihn jeden Abend genutzt. Das Grundstück liegt abgeschieden an einer kleinen Straße, die ins Moor führt. Ein kleinee Supermarkt und ein gemütlicher Pub sind in der näheren Umgebung. Auch Reitmöglichkeit am Meer ist ganz in der Nähe gegeben. Clifden ist nicht weit und ein bezaubernder Ort mit vielen Geschäften und Pubs.

Das Haus selbst bietet Platz für 7 Personen, so dass wir uns ausbreiten konnten. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, auch mit Gewürzen, Tee Kaffee u.ä. Zur Begrüßung gab es einen leckeren Kuchen. Die Waschmaschine erwies uns gute Dienste. Die W-Lan Qualität war sehr gut, was besonders unsere Kinder freute (Streamen von Serien und Filmen und gleichzeitig Minecraft online spielen war kein Problem).

Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und würden jederzeit wieder dort wohnen.

Excellent séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable, malgré le temps un peu frais...

Le petit Lexique transmis par les propriétaires avant notre arrivée nous a été vraiment très utile: une mine de bonnes adresses et de conseils de visites que nous avons presque tous expérimentés, pour notre plus grand bonheur!

Le cottage est très bien équipé et très cosy. Rien ne manque: cartes et guides sur la région, musique (on n'a pas pu écouter tous les CD des Chieftains!) pour les soirées au coin du feu de tourbe, bottes pour la pêche à pied, produits de première nécessité (bien appréciable lors de notre arrivée tardive), etc, etc...

Situation excellente: les environs sont calmes et sauvages, les plages voisines sont fantastiques sous la belle lumière irlandaise! On se sent vraiment au bout du monde...

Nous avons découvert un Connemara authentique et accueillant, que nous ne sommes pas prés d'oublier.

Location à recommander chaleureusement!

Charmante maison

  • 5 of 5

Maison charmante et chaleureuse, très bien située dans le Connemara, proche des plages, et avec tout le confort pour passer une très bonne semaine de vacances. La vue et les paysages aux alentours sont magnifiques. Excellent contact avec les propriétaires qui sont d'une grande aide pour toutes les choses à faire et à voir dans la région. Le wifi est appréciable. A recommander

Très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons séjourné durant une semaine dans ce charmant cottage. Bien situé, bien équipé et aménagé avec goût, il est à la fois un excellent point de départ pour de multiples visites dans le Connemara, et il permet de magnifiques promenades sur de superbes plages très proches.

L'accueil chaleureux et efficace des propriétaires et de notre contact Français sur place nous a permis de nous organiser de suite pour profiter au maximum de ce séjour dans ce pays si attachant!

Nous recommandons vivement ce cottage.
