  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seawwatch."

    We found the house very cozy and comfortable and mostly suitable to our taste. The location was fantastic and we had a gorgeous view of the Bay which we love. Access to all the great places to eat in Roundstone was very helpful. We would definitely book Seawatch again. Mary was extremely helpful and friendly and we very much appreciated her welcome and warmth. A big thank you Mary for a great week.

The property

This lovely, semi-detached cottage is situated on the main street, in the heart of the village of Roundstone, less than 15 miles from the popular town of Clifden, in County Galway.

Boasting views of Roundstone Bay and mountains, this traditional, light and airy Roundstone cottage offers three lovely bedrooms, a ground floor double with en-suite shower, a double and a single, providing flexible sleeping arrangements for families and friends who wish to explore this wonderful area together.

On the ground floor of Sea Watch House there is a well-equipped kitchen/diner for rustling up tasty dishes, ready to savour at the dining table, a handy utility, and an inviting sitting room with plush seating, open fire and TV, perfect for relaxing after a busy day of exploring.

You will also have access to a well-appointed bathroom on the first floor, where you can freshen up with a choice of bath or overhead shower.

Outside this Roundstone cottage there is a raised rear lawned garden, where you're able to soak up the sun's rays, whilst enjoying some home-cooked food.

The village of Roundstone is well worth exploring, with its historic attractions, harbour, and festivals, along with shops, restaurants, pubs and a children's playground.

A sandy beach is only two miles away, whilst the golf course at Ballyconneely, the town of Clifden, and the stunning Connemara National Park are all close by.

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.
