Un Endroit Sublime
By Daniel V on 02-Jul-2018
Un petit coin de paradis au bout du monde ! Si vous aimez la nature, le silence, le bien-être, les paysages grandioses (montagnes, mer, lacs, rivières, petits chemins bordés de pierres...), allez là-bas sans hésitation ! Nous avons passé une semaine exceptionnelle avec en prime le soleil et la chaleur ; tout est beau dans cette région ; en faisant quelques kilomètres en voiture sur des routes où les moutons se promènent en liberté, on peut passer des paysages vallonnés cernés de montagnes à des plages de sable blanc et à l'eau cristalline ! Quant à la maison, elle est magnifique Nous avons cherché désespérément quelque chose qui manquait mais tout est parfait ! Le confort est au maximum ; nous avons passé notre séjour dans un nid douillet et luxueux avec une terrasse immense où l'on peut prendre l'apéritif devant des couchers de soleil époustouflants. Enfin l'accueil a été exceptionnel même dans les moindres détails : nous avons trouvé à notre arrivée du pain, du beurre, du lait, du café, du thé... comme si nous arrivions chez un ami ; Mike a toujours veillé à notre bien-être par des mails ou des SMS fréquents, avant, après, et tout au long de notre séjour ; il s'est toujours inquiété de savoir si tout allait bien et si nous avions besoin de quelque chose ; c'est un peu comme un ami et pourtant... nous ne l'avons jamais rencontré. Encore une fois, un grand merci à Mike.

Das Haus ist das beste, das wir jemals gemietet hatten. Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und die Einrichtung aufeinander abgestimmt. Auch die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Durch die Fußboden- und Deckenheizung zusammen mit dem Kamin ist es auch immer schön warm im Haus. Die Aussicht aus den Fenstern ist wunderbar und die Lage großartig. Man muss allerdings mindestens eine Stunde Fahrt zu den meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten einplanen. Wer aber Ruhe sucht, der findet sie hier garantiert. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war sehr gut und alle Fragen wurden sehr schnell und freundlich beantwortet. Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier unseren Urlaub verbringen und dann länger bleiben.
Wonderful Return Stay!
By Jerry O on 30-Oct-2017
We returned to this beautiful Holiday Cottage for a one week stay. The overall quality of the property continues to be impressive making it a lovely place to spend time in. The surrounding scenery is exceptional at any time of the year and the views from the windows of the property are truly stunning. We highly rate this property for a whole range of reasons. The Holiday Cottage provides a tranquil escape from it all whilst having plenty to see and do in easy travelling distance. If you want to experience Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way this wonderful Connemara property is ideal.
By John C on 23-Sep-2017
This was our first trip to Ireland and we will definitely be back. Michael gave us thorough directions to the Holiday Cottage and explained everything we needed. There is a village shop close by but not much else in the way of services but this adds to the appeal of the Holiday Cottage as it means you are really getting away from it all. The Holiday Cottage itself is first class, everything you will need is here Michael seems to have thought of everything to make your stay outstanding, we particularly loved the lounge with windows on every side offering stunning views. The Holiday Cottage is about half an hour from the nearest beach and pub and an hour from most other attractions. This is not a problem, if you want a totally relaxing, get away from it all holiday this is for you. We loved the peace and quiet and an added bonus was the star gazing which was amazing due to the lack of light pollution. There are plenty of pubs round and about offering excellent food, the seafood chowder is a speciality. Stay at this Holiday Cottage you won't regret it.
Top Ausstattung, Traumhafte Aussicht
By Sabine G. on 29-Jul-2017
Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. die Ausstattung ist sehr hochwertig und geschmackvoll, alle Möbel sind aus Vollholz, die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Wir, Eltern mit zwei Teenagern, haben eine Menge Ausflüge gemacht, aber auch bei schlechtem Wetter konnte man sich in diesem Haus sehr gut beschäftigen. Es gab Bücher, DVDs und sogar eine PS3, so ganz nebenbei auch noch schnelles WLAN, was für Teenies fast unverzichtbar ist - zumindest für unsere... Man braucht hier allerdings unbedingt ein Auto, und man hat so gut wie zu allen Zielen mindestens eine Stunde Anfahrt. Dafür ist die Lage aber wunderschön, der Ausblick traumhaft und es ist ruhig, richtig ruhig. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter Michael war sehr nett, er kam sogar mal auf einen Sprung vorbei. Egal, ob es im Vorfeld um die Route oder sonstige Fragen ging, er hat immer sehr schnell und sehr freundlich geantwortet.
Luxury By The Sea
By Hannah Tomlinson on 29-Apr-2017
This was our second stay at this lovely property. The setting is absolutely stunning. The house is equipped to the highest standards and everything you need is provided. The property was spotlessly clean. Mike is very easy to deal with. The location may appear remote, but is in fact in easy reach of many of the attractions in the area, with the added bonus that driving to these takes you through fabulous scenery.
Another Wonderful Stay!
By Jerry O. on 22-Apr-2017
This was our second visit to the Holiday Cottage returning because of the high quality it offers. It is second to none! Both in terms of the comfort and cleanliness of the property paired with the 360 degrees of outstanding scenery. The owners manage the property with a refreshing level of attention to detail, the maintenance and warm welcome by Eileen is also of a very high standard. The Holiday Cottage is spacious, well equipped as a home from home, decorated and furnished beautifully. There is so much to see locally and plenty of fantastic beaches nearby to explore. It is clear that the property and its location would suit many, from our perspective it makes a perfect family break. We will book again!
By Mark P. on 12-Dec-2016
The Holiday Cottage we stayed at was definitely the best place we have ever stayed at. the Holiday Cottage was cozy, spacious, warm, clean and most of all had some stunning views out of all the windows. Also the underfloor heating was a massive luxury. It was a great base for us. There was loads of places to eat and the local shops are very beneficial as it had all the goods for you. A car is essential as some of the amazing places that everyone will love is only 30-40 minutes away. The locals are very friendly (Trip to the Aran Isles).
Outstanding Cottage In A Fantastic Location
By Jerry O. on 22-Oct-2016
If you are looking to explore Connemara and want a base that is welcoming and very comfortable this property will not disappoint. The Holiday Cottage is located in an area of fantastic scenery and has views of the Wild Atlantic Way and spectacular mountains. The property is finished to a high specification and all visitor needs have been considered with well thought out information on the property and the local/wider area. The Holiday Cottage is well equipped for a family, the decor is of a very high standard and it is immaculately clean. Mike the owner and Eileen who takes care of the property were really friendly and helpful. We have already recommended to family and friends and would definitely book again. A perfect stay in a truly beautiful part of Ireland!
Heaven On Earth
By Lisa C. on 12-Oct-2016
As the title says this place is heaven on earth. Tranquil, dramatic, beautiful scenery. Exceptional house, attention to detail is second to none. Very clean & well maintained both internally/externally. Some fantastic places to visit most of them within an hour's drive. There was never a problem with communication, Michael was always available & very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed as a family of 4, 2 adults/2 children who did not want to leave this place! We hope to make this an annual event we loved it so much!!
What An Amazing Stay!
By Dawn S. on 11-Sep-2016
What an amazing week we had! The Holiday Cottage was faultless, we had seven people staying and because it is so spacious we still felt we had plenty of room. The views are beautiful from every window; mountains and the sea. The area is lovely, we made use of the two bikes provided to explore the area. There is plenty to do and beautiful places to visit just a short drive from the Holiday Cottage and the local area was great to eat out, the boat inn at Oughterard serves great food as does O'Dowds in Roundstone. We visited the local lead and silver mine which was good fun and had a lovely walk around the white beaches of Dogs Bay. Also the ferry to the Aran Islands is only 30 -40 minutes away which is definitely worth a visit! We all had a fantastic stay and would love to go back. Thank you Mike it was great!
Prepare To Be Blown Away
By Val Lynch on 29-Aug-2016
The pictures on the site don't do justice to this beautifully kept house. Every room has an amazing aspect out to the Wild Atlantic Way. if you want to experience peace, tranquillity, and stay in a spiritual place then this is for you. The house is remote but that's the beauty of it. Everything in the house from the beds, linen, towels and kitchen equipment is of the highest quality. I stayed here for a week with my two teenage sons and it was just magical. There a lots of DVD's to watch when the weather turns to keep you entertained. The location of the house allows you to explore Connemara, Galway and Mayo comfortably. There is lots to see and do and being in the Gaeltacht is charming. We ate out in Kilkeiran, Galway and Cong and the food was amazing especially the seafood chowder and mussels. Dealing with Mike was a pleasure and he was always on hand as was Eileen. I would have no reservations in recommending this beautiful place
Wonderful House, Beautiful Views
By Graham H. on 19-Aug-2016
This is the perfect 'get away from it all' house in a beautiful location. The house is very comfortable, warm and well-equipped. The views of the sea and mountains are just beautiful. There is plenty of information about the local area on things to do and visit, and the house is well stocked with games, puzzles, books and DVDs, should the need arise. There is also a good Wifi connection. The location is fairly remote and we were made well aware of this prior to booking by the owner, Mike. Thankfully this didn't put us off. We were on holiday for 2 weeks with our two sons (aged 13 and 9) and they loved the house and location also, enjoying the freedom of walking or cycling around the peninsula. The owner Mike and housekeeper Eileen were very welcoming and were available at all times to answer any questions. We would thoroughly recommend this house as a base of touring Connemara and the extended region, and also as a place to just 'get away from it all'. If we were to return to Connemara, we wouldn't hesitate to book here again. Graham and Rosalind, Carrickfergus
Perfect Place For Peace, Relax And Explore
By Emil A. on 08-Jun-2016
We made a round trip in Ireland with first a couple of days in the Southwest before staying a week in this beautiful Holiday Cottage in Connemara. Apart from its perfect location with great views the house is very comfortable - big rooms, top kitchen, warm and big lounge with top entertainment as well as fast internet connection which was important to us. The owner Mike was very helpful before, during and after our stay. Mike stated that in advance that his Holiday Cottage is remote but we used it also as base to explore Connemara - and also Mayo up to Donegal. At this time of the year and with all the sunshine we had absolutely no problem to make the miles per car as road conditions are excellent. We had even enough time to do some longer trails such as Diamond Hill in Connemara NP or Croagh Patrick in Mayo. To summarize if you look for a place to relax in luxury and/or to explore great sites in the Irish countryside this luxury Holiday Cottage is the place to be.
By Andy W. on 17-Apr-2016
We were visiting Ireland to celebrate our Siver wedding anniversary and have a bit of a relaxing get away from it all break. On arrival at the Holiday Cottage we could not believe the surrondings and views. The Holiday Cottage was perfect and had an lovely homely feel, clean and well equipped to a extremely high standard. The under floor heating made it feel constantly warm and cosy. Lot's in the area to visit and easily filled our days with lovely places to explore or just walking on the beach with the dog. We were so impressed with the cottage, Micheal the owner and Eileen the housekeeper we have already booked for 2 weeks next year. Before, during and after the visit communication with Micheal was fast and nothing was too much trouble for him,emails were answered in full with great details of the area supplied also. We couldn't fault anything from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend this Holiday Cottage to anybody. Andy and Trish Norfolk
Quality Connemara Cottage
By Dennis G. on 25-Jan-2016
My wife and I were privileged to enjoy a wonderful 15 day stay in this superb cottage. We were unable to find any fault. The Holiday Cottage provides very good views towards the sea and mountains in an environment that forces one to unwind, relax and converse with nature in all its beauty. Eileen was exceptionally helpful in greeting us on arrival as well as maintaining contact during our stay to ensure that we had an enjoyable holiday (even visiting us during a bad storm to ensure we were OK). The owner also made contact to ensure a similar outcome. We were also very impressed by the extent and quality of equipment in the house including a fully equipped kitchen that would satisfy the most fastidious guest. The highlight was the excellent WiFi and heating, including more than sufficient fuel supplies for the fire. It was a wonderful cottage.
Luxurious And Well Thought-out
By Anonymous on 29-Aug-2015
We were delighted with this holidayHoliday Cottage - it had everything we needed and was very well thought-out, with lots of books and guides for things to do. The layout was really spacious so that we felt very relaxed, and the property was very clean. Unfortunately we didn't get much use of the outdoor furniture because it was quite cold in the evenings. However, we used the upstairs sky-light to do some incredible star gazing and chanced upon a meteorite shower! The view out over the sea is amazing in daylight and at night.
Peace Perfect Peace!

This property met all our expectations giving us the space we enjoy as a couple but easy to see how it would suit families or a group of friends. Great views, great sunsets - just magical. Galway, Roundstone, Clifden, all worth a visit and within easy reach by car. Kylemore Abbey is a must. Absolutely amazing setting, great food in the visitor centre. Best Irish stew I've had for a long time. We slept like logs due to the very comfortable bed and the blissful quietness. We would most certainly highly recommend this lovely Holiday Cottage and we look forward to returning in the near future. Michael (owner) was a great host and a pleasure to deal with. Despite our late arrival from England, he was there to greet us and show us round which was so very much appreciated.
By Nicola M. on 28-Jul-2015
What a great house. Really good and comparatively good value against similar houses. This was a lovely house with great facilities, really clean and the stove heater (turf and logs provided) was brilliant on the rainy day we arrived. A real home away from home and only 30 mins from Ros a Mhil (Rossaveal) if you want to catch the ferry to the Aran Islands (which we did - even got sunburnt - which we wernet expecting). It is a great size and was very comfortable for the 2 families. Would highly recommend....the deck was great too and the view stunning. The location is just remote enough with lots of lovely attractions within an hour drive - albeit on bumpy roads but you would expect that in Connemara...did something great every day...would highly recommend the Killary fjord cruise (they even let my daughter drive the boat) and the Aran Islands..Clifden (about an hour away) is a lovely town and the Station house is great for food and really good value compared to Dublin prices. Cong is also worth a visit (Ashford Castle etc) and loads of Quiet man references. Finally watched the movie which was in the house on DVD. The kids loved the Jacuzzi bath too - great laughs! We had a lovely holiday here and would have no qualms in recommending it to others.

We have just had a gorgeous week in this beautiful cottage. The setting of the Holiday Cottage is outstanding with 360 degree panorama, especially when sat on the decking. The surrounding area is great too, with so many places to explore, there is still lots we would like to see. The property itself was impeccable, and was such a lovely place to be and shelter from some of those inevitable rain showers! We managed to imbibe some of the peace and tranquillity of the area through such a thoughtful and well presented home. Again, I can't recommend this property highly enough. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
By Martin S. on 03-Jun-2015
We have just returned from a short holiday in Ireland and cannot wait to go back. It has always been a place we wanted to visit and we could not have chosen better accommodation for our stay than this immaculate cottage. Situated in a quiet and peaceful area, with beautiful scenery from every window, the Holiday Cottage has every amenity you can think of and is within easy distance of some of the most picturesque places the country has to offer. We cannot recommend this Holiday Cottage enough.
