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

This house is magic!
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.
Thank you, Helen, for a wonderful review. I have tried to make my house a home from home and as comfortable as possible.
Fantastic Stay in Tully
If you are looking for a few days relaxation from the hustle and bustle of daily living a great spot to enjoy yourself is Heaven Too. This house is meticulous and the owner has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. While Tully is a small village it has some of the best cuisine in Ireland. Enjoy Connemara Lamb at the Maol Reidh Hotel or fresh mussels at award winning Paddy Coynes both of which are just 1 km from the house. All of Connemara is at your doorstep at Heaven Too...go experience it!
Thank you so much. What a lovely review. I’m glad you enjoyed my house and the area. There are a few other good dining places while the butcher in the Gala store, in Tully, has excellent lamb, beef etc. The beaches are beautiful too
Spacious yet cozy in heart of Connemara!
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.
Thank you for a wonderful review. I'm so glad Anne could do all she could to help you and that you enjoyed my house and area.
So aptly named!
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.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so happy that you really enjoyed my house and found it so comfortable. And thank you for taking the time to write the review. I do hope you get to visit again.
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.
Thank you, Annette.
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).
The Renvyle Peninsula is a rugged and extremely peaceful area in the North West of Co Galway on the Atlantic Ocean with islands, lakes, mountains and deserted, unspoilt sandy beaches. It is 30 minutes from Clifden and one and a half hours from Galway. Kylemore Abbey and Killary Fiord are nearby.
The magnificent Twelve Bens are all around for walking or mountain climbing.
Golf, fishing, island hopping, guided walks, horse riding, theatre, music, art, hotels, pubs and restaurants are all nearby.
