The cottage itself is in a beautiful location just by the ocean. It is well furnished and lies right in the wonderful area of Connemara. We've been to Ireland many times before but this time with our two boys (4 years and 10 months old) which means it was perfect in terms of activities and retreat possibilities. Though it is remote it has WiFi access which means that if you like to stay connected to the world like myself then you're fine. There's a nearby beach which is also very child-friendly but also great for adults without children.
The host are in one word simply fantastic. We had troubles getting a rental car and they picked us up in Galway and drove us to the cottage. Noreen and Brendan lent us not only a high chair for our younger son but also a buggy as well as a cot for the entire stay. We were even given vegetables from their own garden which we enjoyed greatly. Needles to say they were also there to give advice about the area and helped me a great deal in organizing my rental car. I am always amazed about the hospitality of the Irish people and both Brendan and Noreen are the best example.
If you don't mind driving around in Connemara (which I don't because it's honestly beautiful) and love a quiet but beautiful location with great hosts you're in the right place here. We also recommend it for families with kids - but you need to be on your toes about what they are doing as the ocean is very close by. :)
Thank you, Noreen and Brendan, for your hospitality.
The cottage, though slightly remote, was perfect for us! (Had the weather been a littlebit better it would have been perfecter ;) ) But had lots of strolls along the beach, did some walks, visited Clifden and Galway, ate lovely seafood, found lots of shells and saw the seals nearly every day! (bring your binoculars!)
The cottage has everything you need. Very cosy and comfortable!
And the views are magnificent!
Noreen and Brandon are great hosts and make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible! Thank you!
We stayed in this cottage for 1 week. the owners were there to meet us and were very pleasant and friendly. (Mr O'Sullivan was waiting outside to meet us on the road to the house.)Gave us lots of tips and information to make our stay more pleasant and enjoyable. They really made us feel like friends of the family. The cottage was clean and well appointed, and I would stay there again an recommend it to friends.
