This was a lovely house in a beautiful location, the host was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The house was spotless and the breakfast was excellent will definitely return. The host also recommend a place to have an evening meal and her recommendation was spot on.

The B&B was okay on all levels, service was friendly but in a way also distant, which I wasn't used to in Ireland. We paid 105 EUR for a 3 person bedroom with bathroom. I had the feeling that we have had better options in other B&B's for a bit less money but I suppose this probably has to do... More

Amazing area which is very remote & different but peaceful & unforgettable. Supersize,clean,bright & comfortable double room. Very friendly owners & extremelly helpful. A good selection of breads & pasteries to start of, followed by a nice breakfast served on a hot plate (always a bonous). Would recommend & will visit again.

Exactly what I needed. Actually, been there twice so far (2009, 2014). As a photographer, I still feel I can do more in this house and around it. Simple, unique, and absolutely nerve-calming atmosphere.

The first impression of the house is the sparkling cleanliness of everything in sight! The decoration, floors, bedrooms, everything just shines with cleanliness. This doesn't happen by accident; it is the result of meticulous hard work. The owner Mary is so welcoming; nothing is too much trouble for her. She found us lots of walks to do and provided us...

We spent two nights here and we enjoyed it. The driveway you take to get back to it is the Golf Clubs Road and you follow the road all the way back and it is located at the end. The B&B was clean and owners were very friendly. Gorgeous views of the lake across the street and you are able... More

The setting is amazing, a house down a tiny road in front of a lake, looks like the end of the world :) it's beautiful, the house is very nice with a sitting room available to chill out and chairs outside to enjoy the view on the lake! The only thing is that the walls are thin enough so we... More

If you are looking for relax and tranquility, the Waterfront House is perfect. Situated in a front of a lake sorrounded by nature and in a strategic position if you wanna travel around Connemara. Rooms are spacious and well decorated. Breakfast is awesome, you can choose within a lot of variety of food and they offer both irish and contintental... More
