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!
