Should have been fantastic!

  • 1 of 5

“Bedrock is in a fantastic location with a nice beach nearby. We were disappointed that the house was not clean or tidy when we arrived and it could have been much better presented. We also experienced problems with the sewage system and the boiler. The owner tried to help with these issues from a distance as the caretaker was on holiday.

A final resolution was reached with the owner after we returned home at the end of our holiday. Hopefully our experience means that future holidaymakers have a much happier stay with all the issues we raised no longer apparent.”

Lovely vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed mid April at Bedrock - six adults - and there was plenty of room for all of us without feeling like we were stepping over each other! There was plenty of kitchen items which allowed us to make coffee, breakfast and dinner and not run out of utensils. Gail left instructions on how to turn on hot water, and there was plenty for all of us.

Our only suggestion would be to make sure your GPS system has the address correctly so that you are not driving in the dark, trying to find the gate name "Bedrock" as there are no addresses or road lights and the house was not lit up. But it was a nice location to find in the day time!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

This property really impressed us. The location was great - very scenic - with a lovely small cove / beach close by. We brought our two dogs so the outbuilding was wonderful.

Its location close to Cleggan and Omey beach really suited us as we did not wish to stay in Clifden .

The house was very very comfortable - and very well equipped with good quality equipment.

The lady who manages the property was most helpful and only a phonecall away - we will definitely be renting this property again next summer.

Great family get away.

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and only seconds to the beach. It has everything you could ask for and if you have forgotten something Sweeney's is only a few minutes away with pub, restarant and market. An absolute must for the quiet getaway.
