Magical stay in Connemara
We had the most fabulous time staying in this beautiful home with a group of London friends on their first trip to Ireland. Lorna greeted us on arrival and left us a lovely breakfast parcel. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook breakfast for 14 people as well as a Sunday roast. Although we had issues with hot water on our first day, this was quickly resolved and Lorna was happy for us to contact us at any time with questions/ concerns.
Hoping to visit again and will definitely recommend :)
Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
Wonderful, scenic, historic setting for family vacation
Our family of 17 stayed for 5 nights in late November. Our group consisted of 10 adults and 7 children, ages 6 to 15. The lodge was perfect for us. When we asked the children what their favorite part of the vacation was, the lodge was second only to the Cliffs of Moher for all of them. There were so many places where they, or the adults, could hang out. The card room, the pool table, on the window seats. The lodge is large enough for all to find their special quiet place. We had a fire every evening with cocktails after our days of sightseeing. When I walked the grounds on our first day I found 2 donkeys in the front yard. We all enjoyed petting them. The house is in a perfect central location to see Western Ireland. 40 minutes from Galway, 2 hrs to Cliffs. The beds and linens were exceptionally comfortable and bathrooms were plentiful. There are pubs nearby and the locals are welcoming. There was a church fundraiser at the nearby pub with Irish music and dancing on Sunday afternoon which we all attended. Wow, was that an experience. This area is Irish speaking (Gaelic) so the announcer spoke Irish most of the time with interspersions of English for our benefit. The locals showed us the dance moves and made sure we felt welcome. It was my trip highlight for sure. My 9 year old granddaughter left with 2 new pen pals as well. Lorna, the owner, was exceptionally welcoming and responsive. When contacted for help because we couldn't figure out the coffee maker, she brought another one. Don't think twice if you're considering booking this property. Just do it!
