Julie's home is wonderful. We Canadians spent a most warm comfortable week on the ocean, enjoying the spectacular views from every window dawn to dusk. The house was spacious, clean and well suited to daily outings to the far reaches then coming HOME, to a gourmet kitchen with arms loaded with the bounty of the land and sea. Each night we stayed up late by the peat fire, (our first) with glasses replenished often, then retired to very comfortable beds, to repeat the next day.
Michelle was very pleasant and helpful with any detail. Loved our lunch at Ashford Castle in the cottage, and a Sean Keane concert in Tullycross just down the road. Made us feel Irish.
Thank you Julie and Michelle. We'd gladly recommend you home and the area to friends and family.

What a magical week we had at Makeelan House. I have stayed in many self catering properties all over the world but Makeelan House was by far the best. The house itself is beautifully decorated with all the latest mod cons but so very comfortable. The beds were more comfortable than our own at home. The kitchen is just fantastic and has everything you could possibly need and more. The views are to die for and my family and I were blown away on waking our first morning and opening the curtains. The house has been designed to take advantage of the views from practically every room in the house so that even on days of not going anywhere, just looking out of the window is such a treat. We managed to explore a lot of the local area and there is so much to see and do, everywhere we went the food was superb with some of the most tasty fresh fish we have ever had. The most special thing for us was the local people - we were given such a warm welcome wherever we went. Julie, the owner of the property has been wonderful to deal with and Julie's sister Debbie very kindly popped in to check that all was okay - she was also wonderfully warm and helpful. Michelle, the property caretaker is fantastic. They all couldn't do enough for us. We are missing everything about our special trip very much and will definitely be back and I can't imagine staying anywhere other than Renvyle and Makeelan House.
We are so lucky.
We found this wonderful house 2013 on home away and we booked it for the first time. It was SO great that we booked it this January 2016 again - and it was delighting and absolutely stunning like the last time.
Julie, the owner, is SO nice and the house is a dream.
Perfectly located with seaview, wonderfully equipped on a high standard. The rooms are really good, modern and well furnitured, we love the kitchen with the big windows and place for all... It is HIGHLY recommended from us.
Everybody who will rent this property is really lucky.
We will come back again...and again...and again.
All the best!!
A spectacular house with amazing views that go on forever...it really is one of the best locations in all of Ireland. Historic castles, picturesque beaches, and medieval ruins are all right outside your door. The house itself is spacious, modern, tastefully decorated, and immaculately clean. The area around Renvyle has several exceptionally good places to eat, and the people in the neighborhood are genuinely friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend it more, and hope to return someday.
Wir hatten dieses tolle Haus für eine Woche gebucht mit 6 Personen, es ist der Taum, super ausgestattet, schöne Zimmer, guuuuute Matratzen :-) Traumhafter Ausblick aufs Meer.
Schön abgelegen für absolute Ruhe, wir fanden es alle Toll und kommen ganz bestimmt wieder !!!
Loved the property! Julie, the owner and Michelle, the property manager were very helpful! There is a manual in the utility room that explains everything you need to know about the house. They have everything covered! Take a walk on the roads, eat the blackberries and talk to the locals. There are signs that point to "paintings" at the bottom of the hill. Drive to the lady's house and talk to Liz. She will give you a cup of tea and tell you about Ireland.......she was delightful! When you go to Letterfrack - visit with Louis at the Lodge and have a good meal.
Located on the scenic Connemara coastline, nestled between the mountains and the sea, Makeelan House sits on a hill overlooking the 14th century Renvyle Castle and miles of breathtaking Atlantic views.
