We recently stayed at Connemara Country Cottages and had a wonderful time. The road up to the cottages could use some repair but as you drive up you cross the bridge made famous in the John Ford classic John Wayne/Maureen O'Hara movie "The Quiet Man". The new managers are doing a very good job of turning the bad reviews and were extremely helpful, right down to teaching one how to make a peat fire in the fireplace. Galway City is 25 minutes away for the Irish version of the Bohemian life. and to the west there is Kylemore Castle and Secret Walled Gardens. You can wake up to the ever present sheep being herded to higher pasture or returning down to the farm. We stayed in Carrib Cottage and it was well kept, updated appliances, enough kitchen wear to hold a banquet, plates and service sets, flat wear. washer dryer. Even a new guest computer and wifi. The downstairs master suite was well appointed with a sauna, shower and large bedroom, with a view. We'll be back!
