“Didnt want to leave.”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Absoutely loved it, stayed there with my girlfriend as she was home on holidays from her erasmus year. Riona was an exceptional hostess, very nice. Cottage was beautiful, frontroom was very cosy with the fire blazing. Bedroom was big and the kitchen was everything you need. Beautiful location. Even mother nature couldnt get an edge on Riona. The 130km hour winds damaged the road out of the area but within 45 minutes she had the council fix it. Coulnt ask for a more beautiful place to spend time with a loved one.

“Nice holiday in the nature of Connemara”

Bru na Mara is a very very nice place to relax and enjoy the great nature of Connemara. It is directly on the sea, where your are able to make wondeful walks in the rough and beautiful part of Ireland.

Clifden is a nice small city where friendly peoples are living. Also the pubs are great.

The nice owner of Bru na Mara introduced us into the surrounding area of Bru na Mara and Connemara. These information are very useful. We stayed one week there with a rental car and visited whole Connemara. A gorgeous nature with a national park and a lot of awesome places.

“Cosy place”
Reviewed March 11, 2012 for a stay in September 2011

Bru Na Mara is a very nice place for enjoying the sea, the air and the surrounding beautiful nature of Connemara. It is a beautiful and cosy location at the end of a little road. The seaview with some little isles is salving.
We felt very comfortable and being welcomed by Riona. Her information helped us to discover local places and to plan day trips in Connemara. We liked walking along the coastline behind the house and loved it beeing sometimes guided by her cute dog. We liked the landscape and the atmosphere very much, especially the bog with the sheeps, the coastline and the mountains. We enjoyed the daytrips to the Island of Inishbofin and a walk on Diamond hill or to some sandy beaches and also to Galway-City.
We appreciated cooking at home and to buy and taste the local products and also to go out to Pups and to enjoy the delicate seafood.

Staying there gave us great impressions!

“Incredible Connemara”
Reviewed January 12, 2012 for a stay in January 2011

It`s so hard to say about it in the past. We were in Ireland for the first time and fell in love with it at first sight and forever. Especially it concerns to Connemara and Bru na Mara. It was incredible to live on the shore of the ocean. We could walk there for hours and enjoy local landscapes. Then we returned to our cosy apartment and got heat from the turf fire...It may be spoken very many words about our trips around Connemara, but there are lot of them about Irish people. All the people we met here were so kind and friendly to us as if we were their friends for a long time. Especially it concerns to our proprietor Riona. She was kind and lovely woman, who told us many interesting things about Connemara, and like a professional guide showed us places we`d need to visit. And we did it!
Great thanks to Riona.
Great thanks to Connemara!
Hope to see you again.

“de si jolies vacances!!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

nous avons été reçus par une hotesse trés accueillante qui nous a conseillés sur divers périples en fonction des gouts que nous lui avions annoncés
la maison est trés calme, prés d'un minuscule port d'où partent quelques bateaux de pêche, et trés cosy
les promenades à pieds ou en voiture(indispensable), suivant la distance on été à la mesure de nos attentes:magnifiques!
il y a une petite buanderie à la disposition des vacanciers, sur place, et une cheminée où faire du feu pour la soirée
les commerces sont un peu loin et necessitent de sortir la voiture, mais l'accueil chaleureux des commerçants compense cet inconvénient :)
je recommande cette location à tous les randonneurs, les amoureux du calme et de la nature
