  • "The cottage was wonderful."

    We delighted in watching the stunning views and the ever-changing light on the lake from the very comfortable sun room. The kitchen is well equipped, the bed very comfortable and there are plenty of books, music and games for wet days and the WiFi good. The table tennis table is a real bonus and we had several hours fun and real exercise using it. The flowers on the table waiting for us were a lovely touch. We would be very happy to recommend Ard na Coirbhe to anyone planning a stay in this region.

    It enjoys an amazing view over Lough Corrib from the sun room. The owner, Sean, was more than helpful and ensured that we enjoyed our week there. I will definitely return to this oasis of peace and tranquillity. Thank you! Brid Roe

  • "Lovely cottage with a cosy lounge area, modern kitchen and an amazing view over Lough Corrib."

    Great location for exploring South Mayo and Connemara, with a scenic walk along the Seanbóthar right from the doorstep. Friendly owners gave good instructions for accessing the cottage, and also left plenty of wood and turf for a week's worth of cosy evening fires. The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived. Because of the times we are in, we brought our own pillows and linen to be on the safe side (for both us, and whoever was in the cottage after us). Only possible downside was the lack of Wi-fi, and patchy phone signal, but sometimes you just need to switch off anyway so it's perhaps no bad thing!

  • "Lovely cottage in fab location."

    Amazing views, very relaxing. Comfortable accommodation - house well equipped with books, games and jigsaws. Some of local attractions closed due to Covid but under usual circumstances lots to do in area. Managed plenty of woodland walks and visited Galway city and Comnemara National Park where we climbed Diamond Hill! Two villages within easy 10 min drive with pubs, restaurants and shops.

    Lovely, well appointed cottage, surprisingly spacious with everything we needed for a relaxing week in this beautiful part of Connemara, including books and games and lots of information on local activities and attractions. Great walks in the area and fishing of course. We really enjoyed Joyce Country sheepdog demonstration. Thank you John (owner) and Brendan and Booby for making sure we had everything we needed.

    It was very comfortable. We used the table tennis equipment most days, went for walks around the area, Conga is interesting, Corrib loch is magical and we had a view of it everyday. There is no internet, which is the only downside.

  • "This review is all geared around Sykes Cottages."

    It wasn't Sykes that we were particularly pleased with but the cottage itself and the owners . I would really recommend this cottage. It was absolutely lovely. The view was amazing and although we never met Brenda, she was really helpful and pleasant by phone and text. It exceeded our expectations by a mile, extremely well equipped, warm and well organised with instructions for everything clearly available. It really felt like home. Even on rainy days, we found the view incredible and enjoyed just sitting there relaxing. The cottage is also well placed to get around to the local area with ease. The only thing we had a problem with is that there is no form of Wi-Fi and phone signal was intermittent. Some people might find this a good thing (really getting away from it all) but we found that, although the cottage has loads of leaflets about the local area, nowadays so much up to date information is found on the internet that the lack of Wi-Fi did create a bit of a problem from time to time. But it did not spoil our holiday.

  • "The cottage is in a truly breathtaking setting - the views across the lake are stunning."

    The cottage itself is a real home-from-home. It has been beautifully restored and sensitively extended. We had all four seasons in a week whilst we were there - everything from glorious sunshine to torrential rain and even snow. The cottage was a joy to go back to each evening, it’s so warm and cosy (especially when the fire is lit). I was expecting the cottage to be quite teeny but it isn’t at all, it’s really quite roomy! We had a fabulous week exploring this part of Ireland but there’s loads left for us to see. We will happily return to this lovely cottage and we hope that will be really soon.

About the location


Cong 3.5 miles; Galway City 29.5 miles.

The traditional village of Clonbur is located between Lough Mask and Lough Corrib in County Galway. Offering a small selection of shops and pubs, it retains a distinctly Irish feel with its own unique character and charm. There are a number of places of interest to the visitor in the surrounding area, including Ross Hill Abbey, Ballykine Castle and Lough Coolin. For walkers and hikers, the imposing Mount Gable offers one of Ireland’s most scenic mountain walks, with the trail beginning less than 2 miles from Clonbur. The nearby village of Cong is well worth a visit and is famed as the setting for the John Wayne movie, ‘The Quiet Man’. It is also home to Ashford Castle with its magnificent architecture, fine dining and sprawling golf course. Loughs Corrib and Mask are world-renowned for trout and salmon fishing and boats and guides are available locally. Clonbur makes an ideal base for exploring other attractions in the area such as Galway City, the Connemara National Park and Clew Bay to the north.
