Why Annette McAleer chose County Galway

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!

Lovely home with amazing views and LOTS of space!

  • 5 of 5

We loved having Heaven Too be our homebase while exploring County Mayo and County Galway. With three older kids (16, 13, 10), we enjoyed this respite from small hotel rooms and the chance to do laundry. Great kitchen and sweet town. The view from the master bedroom was worth it alone, and sitting at the outside table. We stayed four nights but really wish we’d spent a week here.

Comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and delightfully.located

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely holiday property with everything we needed to make a very enjoyable week. Clean and comfortable (beds particularly so) and roomy in ways that meant no one was ever on top of another. The sitting room had a wonderful stove in which we had a couple of warm peat fires. The conservatory was a favourite on our one rainy day. The location was very good too: a short walk to the excellent local store in Tully (a good range of foodstuffs and daily fresh bread and croissants) and only 15 minutes easy walk to the restaurants and bars of Tully Cross (Paddy Coyne's in particular is not to be missed). The walking in the area is exceptional. Our thanks to Annette and her local representative for everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I am so happy you enjoyed my house and the amazing Renvyle area. I have tried very hard to make my house as comfortable as possible with every amenity. I am so lucky it has a stunning view over the Killary Fjord and Atlantic Ocean

Spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

With 6 travelers, we were very happy to have so much space to spread out! And the view was fantastic, and so relaxing. Not only was the main living room spacious with lots of furniture to get comfortable, there was also a sun room, and outside seating! Someplace for everyone to spread out. The kitchen was stocked, so breakfast was easily fixed and served. The location is convenient to the little town on top of the hill, where there are a couple good places to eat. There are wonderful places nearby for sightseeing and adventures. This area of the country is so incredibly beautiful! Watch out for sheep in the road! We had a wonderful time!

Very spacious and well equipped bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Had a fabulous time exploring the surrounding area.Beautiful sandy beach 10 minutes away in the car.

Loved the bungalow so spacious and comfortable for 4 adults with stunning views.

Only niggle for us the double bed mattress wasn't the most comfortable and made a noise when you turned over,must have been the springs!

Despite that had a great stay and look forward to visiting again.

Owner's Response: Hi Deborah, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay in Heaven Too, and thank you for your review. The double bed mattress was purchased last October. It is much deeper than normal. I’ll check it soon but no one else has remarked on it. I’ve checked with a couple who use my house several times a year and they find the mattress comfortable! Annette

Fantastic Stay in Tully

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Margaret, 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
