Located between Clonbur and Conga it is a great base for touring the Connemara area. We only stayed a single night but could easily have enjoyed and entire week here had we only... More

Ann was a terrific hostess and gave us plenty of advice about the local villages. The property has an amazing view and plenty of nature trails to walk on. Located between Cong & Clonbur, there are several pubs and attractions to keep you occupied. Would definitely go back.

Great location close to Clonbur and Cong, You can walk to both from here via the woods, avoiding the main road. Rooms are neat if rather over dressed for my taste, but very comfortable. The bedroom and bathroom doors seemed very light and noise passed freely through. We found the property to be otherwise well maintained and impeccable however in... More

Ann was such a awesome host. The grounds of this B&B are something from a story book. They were absolutely gorgeous! The house was spotless and well appointed. Ann's knowledge of the area was so interesting. The breakfast was very good. Ann's warm and friendly personality would have me book this place again.
