    Roundstone Village is beautiful. The people were extremely friendly. There are four pubs, two hotels and two cafes so we were never spoilt for somewhere to eat and drink. The house is very clean but the furniture is extremely dated. The sofa is in desperate need of replacement. The leather is coming off and was actually sticking to us when the throws thrown over it cover it up slipped off, which they did continually. The real bug bear for me was the lack of a hairdryer. I've never stayed anywhere that doesn't provide a hairdryer. We had to purchase one from Galway. We also struggled with the rubbish. The information book told us to purchase recycling bags from the local convenience store. They told us that the recycling company don't supply to them any more and you have to go to the company themselves. This we were not prepared to do when on holiday therefore we had to leave the rubbish in the yard in black bin bags which the lady in the shop told us wouldn't be taken away - catch 22. We felt that the correct bin bags should have been left under the sink. All that said, we had an amazing holiday and the house was just somewhere to lay our heads (the beds were extremely comfy) as we were very lucky with the weather and were out all day ever day.

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.
