The property

Resting within historic village of Ballyconneely, County Galway, is Seacrest, a fabulous four-bedroom property, welcoming eight guests and one well-behaved dog.

Enjoying panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and a short journey from Connemara National Park, whilst offering guests a sweeping garden, a tranquil environment, and flexile sleeping arrangements, this single-storey home invites both families and groups.

Park up upon the private driveway whilst taking in the stillness of Seacrest, before heading indoors to reach the social hub of the property; within the open-plan living space you can relax whilst the chef of your group prepares delicious meals, ready to enjoy around the dining table.

For some peace and quiet, retreat to the sitting room, featuring plush seating, a TV, and a woodburning stove, or discover the suntrap conservatory, offering stunning views out to the garden and the coastline.

After some time outdoors, return to refresh in the bathroom, before resting in one of four bedrooms, including a super-king-size, a double with en-suite, a further double, and a twin, all enjoying breath-taking vistas.

Awaken for a day of adventure, firstly reaching either Guinness Beach to the south, or Ballyconneely Bay Beach to the north, both offering sandy terrains, ideal for a coastal stroll.

Pack up your car and travel up to Clifden, dotted with attractions, including the pretty walled gardens of Clifden Monastery, Visit Clifden tourist centre, The Whitethorn Gallery, ideal for artistic fans, and Clifden Boat Club, to truly appreciate the surrounding waters.

Grab your walking boots and continue your travels into the national park, with the chance to summit Diamond Hill, before continuing north up to Kylemore Abbey & Victorian Walled Garden, and Kylemore’s Neo-Gothic Church, both steep in history and charm, perfect for touring whilst on your getaway.

Plan your group break by booking Seacrest as your abode.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €450.

About the location


Clifden 7 miles; Roundstone 10 miles.

The tiny hamlet of Ballyconneely has played witness to significant achievements in history. In 1919 Alcock and Brown landed just two miles away after completing the first ever transatlantic flight. The landing was close to the Marconi Wireless station, itself used to send the first transmission across the Atlantic in 1907. Nowadays, the peaceful location is renowned for the annual pony show and its proximity to the famous Connemara links championship golf course. Close to the vibrant town of Clifden and the spectacular Connemara National Park, this is a superb holiday destination.
