“Perfect bolt-hole in the heart of Roundstone”
Reviewed March 2, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Where to start? My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2012 and we will definitely return.

The location is fab: if you know anything of Connemara you will know that you must visit Roundstone. The Quay House is located right on the pier, so you are at the heart of everything. The surprise for me was that it was unexpectedly quiet during our stay, as the house is located just off the main road. Very close to shops, restaurants and pubs. One of the finest traditional pubs inIreland, O'Dowd's, is all of 30 metres away up on the main road (for some, thatis reason alone to go to Roundstone).

On arrival we found the house spotlessly clean and elegantly decorated. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds are wide and very comfortable, and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. A double and a twin room on the first floor and another double on the second, with good bathrooms on each. Plenty of room for several adults. Stunning views to wake up to, a real treat.

The living room is a very comfortable place to relax, you can fall into the deep soft leather sofas by a roaring fire and gaze out over the sea to the distant mountains. The photos look great but they really don't do it justice. The kitchen area is well equipped with electric oven and gas hob and there is plenty of room to cook up a storm. There is excellent new TV, DVD and surround sound equipment, so if some strange reason you should feel the need to look at cableTV and not out the supersize picture window, you will be well looked after.

There is a utility room with appliances and bin space and heating controls. The house has an elaborate heating system that can be easily set and visiting in winter, we were pleased to find the house heats up very quickly. The owners were kind enough to set it in advance and when we arrived late in the dark of night the house was lovely and warm. There is parking right outside for several cars and your car won't block your view as the house is raised above.

Roundstone is near many great tourist locations and is a base for a walking/cycling paradise. Ballynahinch Castle is closeby, a must for fishing and shooting enthusiasts. It also has an excellent restaurant (book well inadvance!) and a great bar.

Overall our impression was that the quality of furniture and fittings are of a very high standard and we felt that it was less of a holiday house and more like a home away from home. We booked with Anne and it was effortless. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Dear Stephanie

Many thanks for your lovely review, we greatly appreciate you taking the time to write this. I'm so sorry regarding the feather bedding, We do have allergen free bedding for such an event so next time you visit I will ensure that it is used instead of the feather bedding. With very best wishes. Anne
