I visited Connemara on a recent family trip to Ireland. I had heard a lot about it, unfortunately the weather wasn't great, but the ever present mist seemed to enhance the beauty of the stunning landsape.
Still, we were glad we chose to stay at the Quay House. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable, the breakfast was good and the location was great. But the thing that sets this place apart is that it just oozes character. The charming owners Paddy and Julia spend a lot of time visiting house auctions and the place is full of unusual pieces. For instance there is a life-size bronze panther at the front door, and we were surprised to find ourslves in a wonderful Napolean themed room and Paddy has an impressive collection of stuffed fish. I could go on and on about the unusual things you'll find there but it's probably best if you just go and see it for yourself.
