Why Anne Jack chose Connemara
Quote from Oliver St John Gogarty on Connemara: 'There was something else, something indescribable but as real as dim colour or soft sound. It was the spirit of the place; the countryside was faintly magical even in the rain. Half tones told of it; and the soft atmosphere made you feel that you were in a region that was your proper home, a home where there was neither time, nor tide, nor any change at all, something friendly and akin and full of all that might be needed, if need were to arise; but it never did, for you felt that nothing was lacking. And you did not want to speak.' -- Irish poet Oliver St. John Gogarty reflecting on the area around Connemara
Guestbook comments from the owner
“This is a great house in a beautiful location and we hope to keep coming back”
Reviewed January 15, 2013
We have stayed in this house over New Year for the last 5 years and absolutely love it. It is in a great location with beautiful views. We like to go walking and there are so many good walks in the area. The house is so well equipped. A lovely fire in the large living room makes it really cosy for winter. The kitchen has everything you could need and makes it very easy for entertaining. It is close enough to walk to the beach which is really lovely and unspoilt . We have been in this area in the summer too and it is well worth a visit. We hope to keep coming back!
