Super house in a wonderfully remote location that epitomises all that is great about Ireland in general and Connemara in particular. We took this house for a family get away and had a ball. The house has everything you could possibly want and I would highly recommend it.
This house has everything you need. Its location while remote is stunningly beautiful, wake up to wild Atlantic island views to the west, mountains to the north, and bog to the south. It does not get any more Connemara than this. While it seems remote Carna village is only 5 mins from the house and has all the basics, shop, restaurant and bars. Clifden is about 50 mins Galway an hours’ drive. Once you leave the N59, roads are narrow and winding, but there are spectacular views around every corner.
The house itself is huge, 3 separate bath rooms large kitchen and dining room. Everything was modern, and we even had a large barbecue which we got to use. We wanted for nothing, it even had Wi-Fi which is a good and bad thing. This is an excellent base to explore Connemara or just stay put and forget about life for a while. I have to go back.
Bring some basic food just for the first day as it a long drive and its good not to have to go out straight away the same day.
Go for a walk around the small roads of the community there is beauty around every turn and bend.
Be prepared for long testing roads, fill up with fuel at every opportunity.
Do let yourself get lost in the pure beauty of Connemara
