  • "We booked the property months in advance."

    After a change of plans, we decided to cancel our booking( also months after n advance), only to discover that we wouldn’t get refunded a single cent. Of course we were quite upset, but decided not to cancel the booking, even though we wouldn’t stay there. Don’t want to say anything negative about the property, as it seemed lovely in the pictures, and we had no bad experiences with it, but we will NEVER EVER book this again, and therefore definitely don’t recommend it, as no refund, even months in advance, is totally unacceptable. This shouldn’t be legal.

  • "A very enjoyable stay at Sunset View, and a good base to explore counties Galway and Mayo."

    The house was very comfortable in a quiet setting, and had everything needed for a week away. The owners next door gave us a very friendly welcome on arrival but we only glimpsed them a couple of times during the week. Sunset View is recommended for a holiday in rural Co. Galway.

  • "My second stay at the cottage."

    Cozy, warm, peaceful and delightful! The hosts are very kind and accommodating. It’s a short drive to Glenamaddy, Dunmore, Tuam and Roscommon for shops and restaurants but the rural location of the cottage and the surrounding landscape makes you want to wander the fields or bog instead… followed by a hot cup of tea! The perfect getaway in a stunning location. ❤️

  • "We brought my elderly father to Ireland perhaps for the last time so we wanted to stay in Co."

    Galway to see family. Keelogues was the perfect base for us both for short trips out during the day and for my father to stay and rest on days that he did not feel up to travelling out. My husband discovered the beauty of an Irish golf course with Tommy whilst Kathleen surprised us with a homemade apple pie one evening made with her home grown apples. They thought of everything you could possibly need nothing was too much trouble for them. Although it was Autumn we were very comfortable and I'm sure it would make a perfect location for a break anytime of the year.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Sunset View - which was very aptly named - beautiful sunsets every evening from the large, well-kept garden."

    Kathleen & Tom provided a much-appreciated Welcome Pack which included cereal, apple tart, bread, butter, etc. They were on hand if we needed anything and were very helpful & friendly. The cottage had everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable, well-kept and roomy. There was ample off-road parking. The area itself was very peaceful. It was a good location for a base and while we ventured out each day - to Galway City, Fr Ted's at Cloon, Maumturk Mts, Cong, Silverstrand (lovely beach), Roscommon ... Kathleen and Tom did tell us about the nearby 'hidden bridge trail' at Glinsk which was beautiful. Thankfully Kathleen provided the Eire Code for us prior to our visit, as the map on the website showed the cottage in the wrong place (we did mention this to Kathleen). The garden was great for my dog Ben to roam safely in. He was comfortable being there and even went uninvited into Tom & Kathleen's house to see them - they were very good about that! Sunset View was a lovely place to stay. Kathleen and Tom were very thoughtful & kind - such lovely people. Thank you. Linda, Carol, Anne & Ben the dog.

  • "I had a lovely stay at Sunset View."

    It was very peaceful, the wifi is excellent (better than I get at home!) and the cottage is cosy. Kathleen and Tom offer a warm welcome and are on hand to help or answer questions, but are not at all intrusive, just there if needed. Glenamaddy is a short drive away with a good supermarket, a launderette and petrol station. Lough Key is about an hour away, and well worth the drive.

The property offers two well-presented, ground floor bedrooms - a double and single - whilst the first floor offers a spacious twin bedroom.

Take a refreshing drink out to the enclosed patio area, where you can sit out in the afternoon sun and enjoy the lovely views across the owner's land.

About the location


Roscommon 9 miles.

Situated in the north west of County Galway and a stone’s throw from the border of County Roscommon is the small rural village of Creggs. Boasting a small population of residents, Creggs is surrounded by glorious green countryside offering customers a true slice of rural living. The village has a local shop, pub serving food and a fish and chip restaurant, and is a short drive to the bustling town of Roscommon. Why not venture to the shores of Lough Rea and try a spot of angling or rent a boat along the Shannon? Also within easy reach is Strokestown House and Gardens, also home to the Irish Famine Museum. The medieval, cobbled streets of Galway are just over an hour away and here you can sample delicious seafood cuisine, traditional Irish music and experience ‘the craic’. Creggs is an excellent base for discovering the West and North West of Ireland.
