The place was even better than what we expected, as a group of young adults looking for a holiday in the "middle of nowhere". The views were breathtaking, and the fresh air did us all the power of good. Clifden is just a short drive away, so while we'd prepared food to last us the week, we could still run into town to get extra supplies when needed. Some friendly pubs in the area and some great places to go running, climbing, hiking and horse-riding along the beach.
15 members of my family spent a week in the this house and we did NOT want to leave. The accomodations are perfect for a large group. Each bedroom is en suite so you don't have to stand in line for a shower, the beds are comfortable, the entire living space is comfy and relaxing and the kitchen is perfect for self catering! The view is second to none! We spent hours just sitting outside or in the front windows watching the water in the bay! If you are looking for an amazing home to stay in for a relaxing vacation that sleeps a large number of people, this is the place to pick! It's remote enough that you feel far away from the rest of the world but close enough to Clifden you can run in to the market or just a day in town, and Sweeny's pub is a short drive down the road for a pint or a quick sandwich! It's an easy drive to some of the most beautiful places in the Connemara and Galway areas, or, you can just relax in the area and see tons of stuff (the Sky Loop Road is a beautiful drive). And it's perfect for groups with kids - there's enough room for them to spread out if they want, and ours spent hours playing on the beach and exploring the area.
The owner and her family are phenominal hosts and arrived on our first day to ensure we had everything we needed and to familiarize us with the home. They also made themselves available for anything we needed.
I could go on and on...this is a quality run self catering home and you can't go wrong!
