My husband and I just returned from staying a week at the cottages. Everything was perfect - just as we had hoped. We stayed in the Mask Cottage, and by reading some earlier reviews, the new managers must have worked miracles. It was lovely, and spotlessly clean and fresh. The beds were comfortable, with new sheets and duvets, and all... More

We stayed here for a week. The cottage manager, Mary, was awesome. The accomodations were excellent and Mary made sure that we had everything that we needed. We were supplied with some peet to build a warm fire. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. We were really in the 'OLD' country. These cottages are also time shares so you... More

Stayed for a week last October. Very remote and a car is an absolute must for it. We knew it was going to be remote and this didn't bother us in the slightest, the cottages are an ideal base for either exploring the area and use as a place to lay your head down or just sit in and relax,... More

I've read all of the other reviews for Connemarra Country Cottages and can only say for us this was a wonderful experience. We were looking for something out of the way and rustic; if you want all of the comforts of home then you need to either stay home or book that luxury hotel you like. We arrived on a... More

We just love these cottages. My husband has been coming here with his parents a 4 brothers since he was a baby. (30 something years ago.) They haven't changed much since then. We have been going now at least once a year since our youngest was 5 months old. We now have three all under the age of four. The... More

We loved our week in our thatched roof cottage. The cottages are very well located to make day trips to surrounding attractions. Mary was there to greet us upon arrival. She gave us a very thorough briefing and made sure all our questions were answered. She came back several times to see how we were doing and her husband gave... More

We recently stayed at Connemara Country Cottages and had a wonderful time. The road up to the cottages could use some repair but as you drive up you cross the bridge made famous in the John Ford classic John Wayne/Maureen O'Hara movie "The Quiet Man". The new managers are doing a very good job of turning the bad reviews and... More

The area was very remote; however, we did like it and the remoteness did not bother us. One must have a car to enjoy Connemara. The road leading to the cottage was filled with potholes and the directions stopped right at a turn. We stayed in Mask Cottage and the problems were numerous. The manager neglected to show us everything... More

We just spent several days in the Boffin cottage and had a lovely time. This is a mountainside cottage with fantastic views of cattle and sheep roaming outside. If you are looking for top of the line luxury, then find another place to stay. If you are looking for an authentic, thatched roof Irish cottage, then this is your place.... More
