Why Annette McAleer chose Gorteennaglogh

Quote from Oliver St John Gogarty on Connemara: 'There was something else, something indescribable but as real as dim colour or soft sound. It was the spirit of the place; the countryside was faintly magical even in the rain. Half tones told of it; and the soft atmosphere made you feel that you were in a region that was your proper home, a home where there was neither time, nor tide, nor any change at all, something friendly and akin and full of all that might be needed, if need were to arise; but it never did, for you felt that nothing was lacking. And you did not want to speak.' -- Irish poet Oliver St. John Gogarty reflecting on the area around Connemara

Guestbook comments from the owner

“This is a great house in a beautiful location and we hope to keep coming back”

Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have stayed in this house over New Year for the last 5 years and absolutely love it. It is in a great location with beautiful views. We like to go walking and there are so many good walks in the area. The house is so well equipped. A lovely fire in the large living room makes it really cosy for winter. The kitchen has everything you could need and makes it very easy for entertaining. It is close enough to walk to the beach which is really lovely and unspoilt . We have been in this area in the summer too and it is well worth a visit. We hope to keep coming back!

This house is magic!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent two weeks at Heaven Too and it is a magical place. I just retired and wanted to relax and unwind and wake up looking at the ocean each day. This house did not disappoint. It was truly better than advertised. The pictures don't do it justice. It is a very well appointed house and immaculately clean. The beds are very comfortable and has all the amenities you could wish for. We were blessed with good weather most days but it wouldn't have mattered. It was so comfortable at the house that we choose to stay home some days. There are great grocery and restaurant options close by also. We met the lady who cleans the house, Ann, the first day and she was very helpful. Then we met the other Ann, who manages the property for the owner. She was very friendly and helpful. Annette, the owner, was wonderful to work with before we went also. I have rented homes all over the world and this was one of the very best. I hope to return. We loved Paddy Coynes restaurant in Tullycross, the butcher in the Gala shop in Tully and the Country Store in Letterfrack for groceries.

Spacious yet cozy in heart of Connemara!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at 'Heaven Too' starting with Ann Jacke (sp?) going above and beyond the call to ensure that our luggage that the airline lost got delivered to the cottage on our first night. She was in contact with the courier to provide directions that we couldn't have and then personally had him follow her to the cottage on a dark, rainy evening. We appreciated that so much!

We had mom, dad, two children, and grandma on this trip, and we were all comfortable in this home. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The solarium was a favorite feature and the ocean/mountain view was spectacular. A short walk could be had to get to the beach, the shops in Tully, or to the pubs and restaurants in nearby Tullycross which were wonderful. A short 10 minute drive to Letterfrack gave you access to more nice pubs and restaurants, a bigger grocery store, and Connemara National Park visitor center. In addition to that, 'Heaven Too' is in a perfect location for making numerous day trips to all that Connemara has to offer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend this cottage without reservation.

So aptly named!

  • 5 of 5

The name of this beautiful house couldn't be more appropriate! Three of us stayed here and we just absolutely loved everything about this gorgeous home. First of all, the location is perfect: tucked up on a hill looking out to the sea and with a view to the picturesque village of Tully, the house is private without being isolated, and the views from the rooms at the front of the house are stunning. Secondly, the house was immaculate. If Cleanliness is next to Godliness, the name of this house is even more appropriate--it was spotlessly clean and well-equipped, with a kitchen that had everything you could possibly need in terms of cooking utensils and dishes, to the beautiful thick bath towels and luxurious bedding, to the cupboard containing books, playing cards, and board games. Thirdly, there were very helpful and detailed instructions for using the TV, the heating system, the washer and dryer, and especially important, clear and simple to understand directions as to how to access the internet. There was an ample supply of briquettes for the fireplace, and the first night we were there, Anne came by with an extra package of fire-starters for us, in case we had trouble getting the fire going. But I found it to be one of the easiest fireplaces to use--I had a roaring fire going in no time. The central heating came in handy in March, and worked quickly and efficiently to warm the entire house on one particularly chilly day. There was plenty of scalding hot water and great water pressure: all three of us were able to take long, hot showers, one right after another--something that isn't always possible in most homes. I vacation in Ireland twice a year, and have stayed in many places, but this beautiful home would have to rate as one of my all time favorites! Anne couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. Book Heaven Too early, as it fills up quickly, and no wonder! My husband and son had stayed here previously and raved about the place--it was nice to experience it myself.

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This home from home was absolutely fantastic, so well equipped, clean and so comfortable. Even when the weather wasn't great just to sit in the comfort of the lounge and look out at the sea and mountains was brilliant. The kitchen especially was equipped as well as at home, maybe even better. This house is just a great space to be in and one couldn't fail to feel relaxed when there. The location is convenient to explore many local attractions including Kylemore Abbey and the National park. Good to visit the Renvyle hotel for morning coffee with the most fabulous scones and Paddy Coynes pub in Tullycross with the most amazing food and great Guinness in the evening.

Heaven Too

  • 5 of 5

What can we say? Heaven Too is just gorgeous from the immaculate interior to the stunning views from the panoramic windows. We spent a lovely week there even though the weather wasn't too kind to us. The house was really warm and comfortable. Loved the fact that it felt quite rural but you could watch the comings and goings around the village from the lounge. The walk into Tullycross to pubs and restaurant only took 5-10 mins and our dog enjoyed the walks from the front door, especially to the pier and beach.

The only thing we would have liked was a bit more information about the workings of the heating (the stove was actually enough) and disposal of rubbish-we couldn't find a bin anywhere?

Would definately recommend Heaven Too and the Renvyl area as a base for visiting the delights of Connemara (favourite trips were Inishbofen island and Kylemore Abbey).

Wonderful House, Fantastic Area

  • 5 of 5

Came here for a week in July with the family, Fell in love with the house when we stepped in the door. Bright open planned and extremely well equipped. The house had everything we could have asked for. The kids were well entertained by the selection of board games on the wet days, and swam at the peir( 5 min walk) on the good days, as well as the local beaches and horse-riding. For those who play golf, the Renvyle Hotel has a great course only 20 minute walk away, and the craic in the bar after is great.

We were able to bring our dog down with us, plenty of garden space to run around in. (Think she loves it mre than us!!)

We have been coming to Connemara for a number of years now and would usually stay nearer Clifden or on the other side in Ballyconeelly, but, this is the best house we have stayed in by far and also the nicest area. Everything at your fingertips. I would recommend this house to everyone of all ages, From a few mates for a weekend or a couple looking to get away for the week!

We'll be back next year and the year after and the one after etc.... hopefully if its available!!! :)
