    • “Amazing holidays”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I have been coming to this area for over 40 years. The scenery is amazing no matter what the weather, the welcome from the community who live here is always warm and inviting and there is so much to see and do 1 week is never enough. The owners of this property are the nicest couple you could meet, and we always feel like one of the family when we visit. We've been twice in the last year, and are about to go again next month, with our annual trip in June now permanently pencilled in their diary. As long as out party size doesn't grow beyond 6 we won't be looking for anywhere else to stay”

About the location


Clifden 14.5 miles; Connemara National Park 25 miles; Galway 48 miles.

Roundstone, in the Connemara region of County Galway, lies on the western arm of Bertraghboy Bay. The entrance to Roundstone harbour is marked by a large stone, like an upturned bath tub, which is known as seals rock (Chloch na Ron) as seals like to clamber up onto it and bask in the sunshine. The bay itself is also often referred to as Roundstone Haven. Roundstone offers pubs, restaurants, cafés, shops and a children’s playground, plus there is a traditional Irish night in the summer and a number of festivals which take place throughout the year. Roundstone is full of historical and geographical points of interest, including the bell tower of the Franciscan Monastery, now standing in the Michael Killeen Park, and the remains of a monument to St Brendan on Inishnee, a small island in Roundstone Bay. A five-minute drive away are Gurteen and Dog's Bay beaches, plus attractions in the area include horse riding, deep sea fishing, hill walking and cycling. Just eight miles from Roundstone is the Connemara Golf Club and further afield there is great scenery to enjoy either on foot, bicycle or in the car. The lively town of Clifden has lots of interesting things to see, while the Connemara National Park is just a little further away and the city of Galway can be reached in an hour’s drive.
