Set above the road this is a modern cottage built to a traditional style with stone walls helping in blend into the hillside. It has 2 generous sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms making it perfect for families. The kitchen / dining / lounge space is very homely and the lounge area has wonderful views. It was a joy to have have breakfast looking out across the sea as the sun rose and a joy to sit in the lounge watching the sun set by a peat fire with a glass of good whiskey.
The location is fantastic, just 15 mins from Clifden where you have a number of dining options (Mitchell’s is oustanding) and shops (SuperValu is the best supermarket). It’s less than 10 mins from the N59 which gives easy access to the north of Connemara (and the excellent Kylemore Abbey) and the rugged southern coastline.
Et pour les française, c’est parfait avec le chanson de Michel Sardou... (mais Connemara n’est pas un comté...).
All in all the perfect place from which to enjoy the wonderful Connemara.
A week in Connemara in October was always going to be chancy, who knew what the weather would do! As it turned out we had a few days of reasonable sunshine and a few days of heavy rain and strong winds.
On the good days we were out doing stuff, messing about in boats, taking in the beauty of Kylemore Abbey and walking on white sand beaches. With the thought that returning to our fantastic haven on the Atlantic coast was going to enhance the beautiful days we had enjoyed.
On the bad weather days we tended not to venture far from home. Maybe nip into the village to top up with the "essentials" (wine, beer, cakes and newspapers!). Then we decided which of Debbie's varied selection of DVDs we would watch, interspersed with which of our selection of Irish traditional music CD's we would listen to! I could think of no better way of passing a wet and windy day than sitting in the lounge of Sea For Miles, with a glass of really nice beer (on this occasion I discovered McGargles many fine IPAs) whilst listening to a very good Altan CD and watching the Atlantic Ocean dance "before my very eyes"!!
This is a fantastic holiday home, in a fantastic place. If you're going to Connemara, stay here - you'll love it!!!
