“Excellent Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

We actually stayed at Rossroe Lodge from November 5-8, 2011. We arrived a bit earlier than we mentioned, but that was not a problem. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Mary and Silvain and their cute little ones! We were served pie and coffee upon our arrival and had quite the cute conversation with their toddler. The house is very environmentally friendly and very cozy and unique. The room was quaint and the view in the morning as the sun rises is to die for. The shower is well-equipped with shampoo and conditioner dispensers and everything is spotless. Don't forego reserving dinner for at least one evening, cooked by Sylvain, who happens to be a seasoned French chef. The dinner is relatively inexpensive for what you get--3 courses, and he even offers wine for a small extra fee. We didn't get too spend too much time in the house itself, as we were off exploring for most of each day, but this place is no doubt a 5-star accomodation in a remote area of the gorgeous Connemara landscape, no-doubt unrivaled in beauty and bliss. But, be careful getting there, especially at night--the roads are narrow and there tend to be cows who like to take night strolls on the road!
**One word of advice to those who might book this bed and breakfast through Sceptre Tours--the bed and breakfast voucher can be quite misleading. It gives us the option to book this bed and breakfast without any restriction using the voucher, but when Sylvain reviewed the voucher himself, he saw that they only allow for a regular bedroom, not an ensuite--which is difficult and confusing because Sylvain explained that the bed and breakfast association pushed for all bed and breakfasts to ONLY offer ensuite rooms. My boyfriend and I felt terrible about this miscommunication and humbly offered to pay the difference, but Sylvain was gracious and refused to accept. Last I heard, he was planning to take up the issue with B&BIreland. Just a heads up!

Spent 3 nights in this beautiful location and the most amazing B&B. Mary and Sylvain are great hosts. We have no faults with this B&B. The service was great, tea and scones on arrival. The view from our room was of the bay which is amazing no matter what the weather. The room was very cosy and warm with everything you would need for a really comfortable stay. What we found most unusal was that it has been the only place we have stayed in that offers dinner in the evenings, which is great after walking around the beautifull countryside all day. Very stress free. Food is to die for, such amazing quality of food and service we got from Mary and Sylvain. Will certainly be back for more. In terms of comfort, quality and value for money it is second till none and well worth booking for your stay in Connamara.

This is the first time I've ever been moved enough to write a review. After a long drive, Mary welcomed me with a pot of tea and a scone - just what I needed. I wanted to get onto the internet immediately and the signal was great despite the remote location. I would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay - the view from my bedroom over the water with the Connemara mountains in the background was simply stunning. Unlike most B&B's there is the option of dinner or one could eat at the local hotel/pub restaurant. The shower had shower gel, shampoo and conditioner a la gym clubs - a big bonus in my view. Breakfast was excellent as well as it set me up for a long drive back to the Midlands.

Room Tip: Front room overlooking the sea - simply breathtaking

We arrived late in the evening after an unexpected detour to climb Croagh Patrick (but that's another story). The welcome tea and scones helped revive our spirits, but the generosity of our hosts was overwhelming. Despite the late hour, Sylvain offered to whip up a meal to save us heading out again in search of dinner. We were expecting "something simple" and got a 2 course meal that any Michelin chef would be proud of. Don't hesitate to pre-book your dinner at the B&B - you won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful two-day stay at this out of the way B&B in beautiful Connemara on the west coast of Ireland. Our hosts made us more than welcome. The little people in the house were a bonus! The house is modern; our room and the dining room overlook a little inlet from the sea. You are in easy driving distance of the sights of Connemara. If you do go, be sure to ask if the hosts will make dinner; we had a most magnificent dinner in the dining room overlooking the bay in the twilight, with good wine, simple local food, and limoge china. An evening to remember. If you are within a 100 km of western Connemara, search out this B&B and stay here!
PS: There is internet and a guests lounge, and a deck for warmer weather.

Room Tip: Ask for the front room overlooking the bay, on the main floor

Oh, how we loved our time here! We were tired and road-weary when we arrived, but Mary's warm welcome and pot of tea revived us instantly! Sylvain is a wonderful chef who cooked an evening meal for us, and it was the best beef stew we've ever had! Breakfast was delicious too, and kept us satisfied all day. Our lovely room looked out onto the sea, and we slept soundly and comfortably. Did I mention how peaceful and beautiful it is there? We were so grateful to find this little slice of heaven in Cashel!

We enjoyed two nights here whilst attending a family event and couldn't have picked a better place. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, the family were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely be back when visiting again!

Room Tip: The family room was spacious and quiet but nice and dark so no early awakening from our son!
