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).

The ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a stay in Connemara. It is warm, comfortable and has everything you could ask for - with stunning views. Roundstone has all necessary facilities within easy walking distance - and O'Dowd's which is a lovely welcoming restaurant where we ate 3 times within the week. We had some great walks - some of them straight from the flat without needing to drive. Stunning beaches just 3 km away made the perfect run to start the day! A visit to Aran was a highlight but we didn't want to be away from the flat too much... Thank you to Orla and Teresa for their warm welcome. We will be back!

Well equipped and with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Throughout our stay we received a very warm welcome from Orla and the other members of the Bogbean team.

The apartment is well equipped and comfortable and the views are just magnificent.

There are plenty of good, friendly local pubs and restaurants nearby if you want to eat out or you can use the well equipped kitchen and enjoy the scenery from your dining table.

An excellent base from which to explore Connemara. We will be back !

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this apartment. We arrived in Roundstone on a beautiful sunny evening in April. The view from the apartment that evening was simply breathtaking. The apartment itself was everything that we expected it to be. We found it to be comfortable, well maintained and most of all - warm. We never once had to worry about heating. By some magical means the temperatures were always perfect. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had an endless supply of hot water. In general it was like a home away from home.

Ard View is perfectly placed to enjoy the best of Connemara. We had a fabulous week here, walking on beaches, over bogs, cliffs and generally felt rejuvenated after our break. We felt totally at home in this apartment and want to thank Ann for the opportunity to stay here. We didn't want to leave.

Roundstone is a beautiful village where we found the local people friendly and welcoming. Ann's daughter Orla, ably assisted by Teresa run the cafe underneath the apartment and it's one of the many pleasant places to eat in Roundstone. We thoroughly enjoyed picking somewhere to eat at night and taking a stroll there after our action packed days.

This place is a little gem and we will certainly return.

Thank you Ann.
