Mary gave us a warm welcome in their lovely house overlooking Lough Corrib. The room was clean and comfy, breakfast was perfect. It's a great location and ideal for those who like peace and quiet. We really enjoyed our short stay.

It rained when I arrived but I still enjoyed my one night stay at Mary's and Tom's comfortable home. I think it's a great place to stay between Galway and Connemara national park. It's quiet and peaceful and has lovely views of the lake plus the greenery outside my bedroom window. Mary and Tom are perfect hosts. When I come... More

Had a great one night stay here in May - very beautiful and peaceful - pity it was a little too cool to sit outside and enjoy the lake view. Clean comfortable room and very nice breakfast. Thanks Mary!

The owners are really friendly and kind. The beds were comfy, the view was great and the breakfast was yummy. Would go again. If you are planning to go on a nice quiet break in Ireland this is the place to go
