Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Connemara - Teach na mBo, Inisfail Farm,

2 bedroom, 2 en-suite barn sleeps 2-4 with rural and mountain views

Our traditional, 2 bedroom cottage, situated on our small working farm, combines the traditional cosiness of a thick-walled stone cottage with all the requirements of modern home living - including WiFi.

The main living area is open-plan with wooden floors, beams and a turf-burning stove which gives off the tantalising smell of Connemara. Turf (peat) is provided. Patio doors open out onto the small paved walkway to the house and give views of the shared garden and out towards fields bounded by the traditional stone walls found in this part of Ireland.

The main living space also includes a dining table seating four. Our fully equipped, contemporary kitchen area has granite worktops and the integrated appliances you would expect from a home of this quality, including hob, fan- oven, microwave, and dishwasher. A comfortable sofa, chairs and lovely soft furnishings complete the look. A small flat-screen TV is provided with satellite freeview channels, Irish channels and a dvd/blueray player.

The wooden floor is carried through to Bedroom 1, which has a traditional cast-iron framed, Kingsize bed with hotel quality mattress, topper and all bedding. There are plenty of built-in wardrobes and a hotel-style tiled, large en-suite with bath and large, separate shower.

Bedroom 2 is accessed via a short flight of stone steps down to a twin room - again with high quality soft furnishings and bedding. This room also has a hotel-style, tiled en-suite shower room.

There is also a US-style laundry cupboard housing a new washing machine and separate condenser dryer.

Outside there is a dedicated parking space and extra parking in the shared farm yard - access to a garden, a small paved area, a BBQ and outside eating space with table and chairs.

We have aimed to provide a home-from-home and you are welcome to help yourself to anything else you might need from our garage which contains a shared table tennis table. If available you can borrow stuff for the beach - chairs, portable BBQ, fishing nets for rock-pooling - just help yourself.

Phantastisch! Außerordentlich empfehlenswert!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren bei der Buchung über HomeAway direkt von den Fotos begeistert und wurden nicht enttäuscht! Die Fotos geben wirklich die Realität wieder!
Es ist alles da, was man als Familie mit Kindern braucht, inklusive Gesellschaftsspiele, so dass man bei "schlechtem" Wetter einfach in Teach na mBo bleiben kann und einfach die Unterkunft geniessen kann.
Das Cottage ist sehr neu (2013 hergerichtet), hell und sehr liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und ist für vier Personen perfekt.
Die Vermieter Janet und Michael sind sehr herzlich und zuvorkommend. Die Kommunikation / Abstimmung vor der Anreise ist ebenfalls vorbildlich. Man bekommt eine Liste mit "Things to do" und weiteren Empfehlungen.

Wir haben so einige Erfahrung mit Ferienwohnungen - Teach na mBo ist definitiv unter den besten, wenn nicht gar die Beste, in der wir bisher waren!
.
PS: Die Kommentare in dem Gästebuch vor Ort waren genauso positiv wie die hier.

Owner's Response: After a summer of stunning weather it all changed - fortunately the cottage has lots of space and Coral Beach, a short drive away, is always great fun - even on a wet day. Thank you very much for your kind comments. Janet and Michael

Cooles Cottage in herrlicher Gegend

  • 5 out of 5
Wir (Familie mit 2 Kindern 6/12) haben uns auf Anhieb wohlgefühlt. Das traditionelle Cottage wurde behutsam restauriert -passend zum Stil- ländlich eingerichtet und mit einer umfassenden, modernen Ausstattung ergänzt.

Die Lage war perfekt für Tagesausflüge (Connemara, Aran Islands, Burren etc.) und wenn wir mal nicht unterwegs waren so konnten wir den wunderschönen Strand (zu Fuss erreichbar) geniessen (meist alleine/trotz Hochsaison) oder einfach nur im netten Garten relaxen. Falls es dann doch mal regnen sollte, so bietet das Cottage auch noch ungewöhnlich viel Platz.

Herzliche zuvorkommende Vermieter (Danke Janet + Michael).
Wir können das Haus wärmstens empfehlen!

Owner's Response: Die meisten Ferienhäuser dieser Größe würde behaupten, mindestens 6 Personen schlafen, aber wir glauben, dass es wichtig ist, ein Zuhause weg von zu Hause auf Urlaub. Wir freuen uns sehr Sie Ihren Aufenthalt genossen. Janet und Michael Conneely (mit Google Translate so entschuldigen, für Ungenauigkeiten!)

Just a dream

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week in this lovely cottage for our honeymoon. We had fantastic weather all the time! Janetts cottage is lovely, warm and romantic, with little details plenty of love and care. Dishwasher, toaster, the kitchen was equiped with modern, warm furnish. It is the ideal place to start to visit Connemara, the Burren and the region of Galway. We can not but recommend this cottage. We already miss it a lot, our nest!

Owner's Response: Our first honeymooners! We're very pleased you enjoyed a romantic break at Teach na mBo. We laid on a few little extra romantic touches to make it special so we're really pleased you enjoyed it and we look forward to welcoming you back perhaps for a 'family holiday'! With our thanks and best wishes for your future together. Janet and Michael Conneely

SUPERBE SEJOUR

  • 4 out of 5
Super petite maison située à l'ouest de Galway, partie sud du Connemara. La maison est très confortable, charmante et fonctionnelle dans un environnement totalement dépaysant, dans un paysage irlandais typique. La tranquillité et le repos sont garantie. La localisation géographique permet d'accéder vers l'est à Galway, charmante ville animée de bord de mer avec pubs et animation de rue, vers le nord-nord-ouest au paysage typique du Connemara (Twelve Bens et Clifden) : un régal et un dépaysement total. Nombreuses possibilités de randonnées pour ceux qui aime la marche.
Concernant le gite, je le recommande à une famille avec deux enfants maximum, ou deux couples sans enfant car chaque chambre à sa salle de bains, douche et WC. La pièce de vie principale sépare les 2 chambres.

Owner's Response: Thank you for these kind words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Just to confirm that the cottage is to the west of Galway but that East of Galway and the Burren are a day trip away.

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Teach an mBo for a walking weekend in March. The stone barn has been converted to a very high specification with everything we needed. Comfortable, clean and stylish. Owners were very accommodating and went the extra mile to ensure a fantastic weekend. Could not recommend highly enough and the weather was kind to us to boot!

Owner's Response: The cottage is ideally placed for walking in the Bens or the Mamturks. The stunning weather in March was a bonus.

Teach na mBo (House of the Cow) is a recently restored cottage on a small farm - suitable for family and adult group vacation rentals. Great for weekend breaks with handluggage only - everything on site. Plenty to do, see and experience. The house is 10 minutes walk to the sea and an easy walk to a beautiful, sandy beach with safe swimming in Galway Bay. Local small supermarket just 10 minutes walk in the other direction and two pubs within a 20 minute walk.

Great promenade for walking at Salthill and the diving platform into the sea at high tide is an experience not to be missed..

FOR GOLFERS many courses easily accessed in a day including Galway Bay and Championship courses at Oranmore and Ballyconneely. Many other courses at Barna and the best kept secret course (9 hole) The Connemara Isles. We are happy to advise.

TOURING AND SIGHTSEEING - Ideal base for exploring beautiful beaches, mountains and Connemara. scenic drives through Connemara - the A59 features in Top Gear's Top 100 Drives in the World. The Burren is a good day trip. Take a boat to the Aran Islands - 10 minutes to the Ferry - and see the Celtic fort at Dun Aengus. Go horseriding on the beach.
