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

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.

Wes tay at Waterfront House County Home for 2 nights. Toma and Mary were very friendly and helpful. They gave us few good tips on local attractions. Rooms are nice and clean and breakfast was very nice. The view on the lake is just gorgeus. I highly recomend this B&B!

The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the view was great. One little downside was the bugs that came from the window when it was open because... More

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!
