    “Lovely House - Perfect Location - Magical Holiday”

    This lovely house is located in the heart of the Roundstone, a delightful fishing village in Connemara. A 2 minute stroll down the hill from the front door leads directly to the pier and the main street which is bustling and has so many places to have a tasty meal, listen to music and ramble about to enjoy the charming surroundings. The stunning Dog's Bay is just up the road and you will be overwhelmed by beauty on the Sky Road to Clifden - cycle, walk or drive on the Sky Loop for breath taking ...

There is so much to see and do in Connemara but what made our holiday perfect was this special little cotttage Benview. We received a wonderful welcome on arrival from Carol, the loveliest, friendliest lady. Carol and her family live next door. She gave us lots of information about what to do and where to go (including the Roundstone Irish Night -a real highlight). The house is immaculate and has everything you could wish for. The stylishly decorated bathroom even has a jacuzzi ! The three bedrooms are so comfortable - we had the best sleeps ever in them. The bright white kitchen is fresh and well equipped for home cooking and the open plan living area is a splendid space to relax in after a long day’s touring. We enjoyed some delicious fresh fish, a gift from Carol the owner on our arrival and we were more spoilt when she delivered a home baked rhubarb and and apple tart to us (scrumptious). I can’t sing the praises of this gorgeous holiday home enough and its location in the heart of beautiful Connemara but what made everything so wonderful was the hospitality of the owner - the welcome and kindness during our stay. Thank you Carol for the opportunity to stay at Benview House, Roundstone. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend this lovely, special house as a terrific base for a magical holiday in Connemara.

About the location

ROUNDSTONE, COUNTY GALWAY

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.
