  • "The Lakehouse is such a stunning little gem nestled away in a beautiful part of Galway."

    The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could need during a stay. Delia was such a lovely host and came down on the first day to check we were happy with everything. The Lakehouse was just perfect and we would recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing break away. We'll certainly be back!

  • "The cottage is cosy and beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice."

    Delia was a wonderful host and the facilities were excellent. The lack of WiFi was a blessing as we all managed to disconnect at the lake house. Would highly recommend a stay in this special place to anyone.

  • "Delia is a lovely host, providing us with an exceptionally warm welcome and very detailed information about the house."

    No photographs can do the islands of Ceantar na nOileán justice and in turn, Delias Lake House. The house is rustic but with all modcons and the location is beautifully scenic. The livingroom is very cozy, with a massive fireplace the main focal point. Some very lovely decorative touches throughout the house. Taking the boat on the lake was great craic, and under the Autumn sun just idyllic. Walkers have lots of options, with just one "main" road as an artery running through the island there is a large network of laneways and trails to navigate without the worry of traffic. For starters I would recommend the loop around the lake, which can be extended by walking down to the rugged shoreline. Tigh Lee's pub is a short stroll away and highly recommended for a few(too many) pints and conversation with the incredibly friendly locals. If you are looking for some local seafood you should ask around for contact numbers for local fishermen, we managed to purchase a huge amount of freshly caught shellfish for a fraction of the cost you would pay at market value. If you want to visit a truly unique corner of Connemara I cant recommend this property enough. Largely untouched by tourism with a purity of Gaelic culture little present elsewhere in Ireland but still in reach of the sights of North Connemara. Thank you Delia for the opportunity for outsiders to enjoy this region from such a beautiful home.

  • "WiFi would be helpful."

    Otherwise a nice cottage, located in a quiet region. We liked the lake! Good location base to discover the Connemara and the Aran islands. Regarding Sykes - due to changes in our travel plans, we had to return some days early. The no refund policy of Sykes meant we lost 100% for that period. That is a reason not to book with Sykes anymore.

    Enjoyed very much our stay here, especially the daytrip we made to one of the Aran Islands.

  • "The owner of the cottage was wonderfully welcoming and helpful (even fire lit & coffee brewed ready for our arrival - thank you) - and the house was warm, comfortable & well-equipped."

    Having our own lake & boat for a week was just amazing too!

  • "This is a most beautiful Irish cottage off the coast of Connemara."

    It is so well equipped, making your stay so relaxing and enjoyable. The owner, Delia, is so welcoming and helpful and has a very detailed knowledge of the area, as she was born on the island. The cottage itself has an aura of peace, warmth and tranquillity and the views over the lake from the dining room window are stunning. At the end of my stay, I just wanted to stay another week, as it was such a relaxing holiday. I will certainly return next year! I recommend most highly this lovely cottage.
