About the property

1 Bedroom Self-catering Penthouse Apartment With Panoramic Sea Views

This is an exclusive self-catering luxurious property situated in the middle of Roundstone village. If you require a different sea view every time you look out your window, this is the apartment for you.

The Ard View apartment has plenty of free parking outside the door and there is free WIFI available. It has oil fired central heating, a beautiful hand-crafted kitchen, all modern appliances, a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and a large flat screen television.

The bedroom which possesses a very comfortable queen sized bed has the very best quality linen. This luxurious apartment boasts its very own Jacuzzi bath; the perfect place to relax after the numerous beach and hill walks which surround the beautiful village of Roundstone. Indeed, the world famous Dogs Bay and Gurteen beaches are less than 2 km from the village - both beaches boast miles of golden sand, crystal clean waters and are a swimmer's delight.

Situated a few metres from Roundstone House Hotel (Vaughan's) and O'Dowd's Seafood Bar and Restaurant, this apartment couldn't be more centrally located.

What better way to finish off your evening than taking your glass of wine onto the balcony and watching the boats return to the harbour with their catch of the day. Pure heaven!

(During High Season, rentals are from Saturday to Saturday).

Amazing Views from "Ard View" Penthouse Apt.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this amazing apartment with its absolutely spectacular views for a week over the busy Roundstone Regatta weekend in July last summer. I know, I'm writing my review months later, but this apartment and the hospitality offered by Orla and her housekeeper warrant a review of some sort, even a late one at that. We both loved the space! It's a bit of a trek up the stairs, but worth every step as the view is panoramic. We both appreciated the small balcony and spent many hours sitting in the fresh air watching the Galway Hookers race across Roundstone Bay. The kitchen has everything, even cooking oil and spices. A small grocery store is directly across the street. Several excellent restaurants line the quaint main street of the village. I highly recommend this apartment.

Beautiful Penthouse with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent a week in this lovely comfortable apartment, it's all that the description says it is and more. Lots of little extra touches that were much appreciated (love the china sheep on the kitchen worktop!). having dishwasher tablets, kitchen rolls & tissues etc. was also very helpful. Very comfortable bed with quality linens and pillows. The all round views are stunning, watching the sunrise from the kitchen is a view to remember. We struggled to think of any improvements to Ard View, the only minor things we could think of was perhaps a wall clock in the lounge/kitchen area and a plastic beaker in the bathroom for use as a tooth mug as I was worried about having to use a glass tumbler from the kitchen. We didn't meet Ann during our stay but were looked after very well by her daughter Orla who owns & runs The Bogbean B&B & Café which is below the apartment. She was always ready to answer any questions and give suggestions about trips in the surrounding area. The village of Roundstone is delightful, very friendly people with plenty of nice places to eat & drink. Would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Connemara.

Very cosy and spectular views

  • 5 of 5

This flat is a great place for a couples and families. We were there with our 1 y. o. son. The view of the bay is amazing; you can watch it while having breakfast. The apartment is very well equipped (tv, washing machine, drying machine, coffea maker, kooking stuff, etc.) and the decoration is lovely.

Ann, the owner, and her daughter were very helpful in everything. They gave as a cot for our baby and even DVDs to watch, as well as assisting us in everything we needed.

We had a wonderful time, both resting and exploring the area of Connemara from Roundstone (beautiful cosy village, by the way).

Great flat with fantastic views in nice village

  • 5 of 5

Ard View is a lovely and spacious apartment with fantastic views over the harbour. We spent a great week in Roundstone Even though we did have some rain ;). But that's the great thing about the flat: You don't mind the rain so much with these spectacular views!

Fantastic views in a gorgeous location

  • 4 of 5

The biggest selling point of this apartment is the spectacular views. They really have to be seen to be believed. We spent much of the week just sat looking out the window! The apartment is modern and clean. Roundstone is an ideal location to see this area. You can walk easily along sandy beaches and up hills. The locals are friendly and there is good beer and food in the village! We had a great week in this lovely place. Whole heartedly recommend it!

We normally love to be out and about, but choose a nice place to stay when we go away for October half term so that if the weather is poor then we don't mind staying in - but this time we were almost disappointed that the weather was good because we had to drag ourselves away from the fantastic view from the apartment windows!

Perfectly placed as its so private but yet a minute away from good bars, cafes, shops and lovely walks, as well as being an ideal base for touring the area.

Exactly as shown in the photos, spotlessly clean, Ann and her daughter both readily available for any help - lovely people. Would highly recommend
