“Best B&B around Connemara NP (Josef, Czech Rep.)”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Best place (quality/hospitality/price) we stayed during our 10 days trip around Ireland. Caitlin did her best to set warm and hospitable atmosphere. Rooms were cute and really big, comparing other B&B. Place is amazing... the end of the world, small wonderful peninsula, far from everything... You can really enjoy peaceful Irish coastal village with no turist rush, etc. It is not that far from Connemara NP (30 min. by car – good place to set for a trips)... enjoy!

Room Tip: if possible - take the family room :) the biggest one with 5 beds (we only paid for 2) ... it was re...

Caitlin's warm presence infuses her lovely home, making this a relaxing and cosy place to stay. She greets guests with refreshments and takes the time to talk and get to know you. The rooms look out onto the sparse but dramatic and beautiful scenery of Mweenish Island, connected by road to Carna. Five minutes walk down a country lane, you will find a secluded white sand beach with beautiful Connemara backdrops behind. Her Irish breakfasts are delicious, plentiful and freshly cooked. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We brought our small dog, who was made very welcome. While more remote than some areas of Connemara, this b&b, in the heart of the Gaeltacht, won't disappoint and guests will remember Caitlin's warm hospitality for a long time.

I have recently returned from a 3 night stay here. My South African friend and I really enjoyed our time in Connemara and our stay with Caitlin in particular. We loved the room with its beautiful decor, peaceful ambience and its views of the islands .Caitlin is a great hostess and everything in her home is spotless. The breakfasts set you up for the day and you are sure of a welcome back in the evening. Atlantic Wave is a great place to base yourself for a holiday in Connemara.

Caitlin was friendliness personified and made us very welcome in her lovely home. Clean, comfortable and with a breakfast to last the day, I can't recommend this B&B highly enough. Great value for money and with side-splitting entertainment form her dog, I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I was making my first visit ever to Ireland, and had no idea what to expect. I had read excellent reviews of the Atlantic Wave, and thought I would give it a try. I can tell you that it was a splendid place to stay. They views were wonderful. The B & B was inviting, very clean and our hostess Caitlin couldn't have been more kind and helpful. The breakfasts were superb! I especially enjoyed staying on the island near Carna. It you are looking for a place to stay in or near Carna, I don't believe you could choose any better place. I certainly hope to be back.

I have stayed in a few B&B's when I have traveled over to Ireland, but Atlantic Wave is by far the best one I have been to. It is located in a beautiful area in Carna. The rooms are exceptionally clean, and I had some of the best sleep that I have had traveling. The owner and hostest Caitlin is extremely hospitable. She made absolutely delicious full Irish breakfasts every morning, and was very helpful in pointing out destinations to visit around the area. She even pointed us in the right direction when I got a flat tire on our rental car. I highly recommend that if you are planning on visiting the area in Ireland near Carna that you stay at this Bed and Breakfast.
