Kennedy Party, April 2019
This is a cosy cottage in a stunning location, and a perfect spot for anyone holidaying with their dogs - definitely plan to go back there again.

Campbell Party, October 2018
This cottage is in a great location - right on the shore with a wonderful beach just a short walk away. It is overall well-supplied.

Wilkins Party, September 2018
A wonderful location on the dge of the ocean, within reach of sublime and iconic landscapes and locations. The cottage is homely and has a real sense of histoty which the owners preserve as part of the experience. Ideal for anyone who wants to be in touch with the country.

Sybille, August 2018
We spent a week in this area. The view from the house is great. A 2 minute walk brings you to the beach. It's a good position to explore Connemara. You are close to Cleggan where you can catch the boat to Irishbofin and there are also nice pubs with life music at the weekends and good food of course.

The Golding Family, June 2018
This property is in a great location. It is within easy access to spectacular beaches and has breathtaking sea views. It is by far the best property we have stayed in and we can't wait to go back!

Natasha Louw, June 2018
This property is so peaceful and calm - the whole process was very quick easy and best of all Imagine Ireland is Dog friendly

Mr and Mrs Tormeilles, November 2017
The perfect place to visit Connemara with an incredible presence of the ocean. Convenient and cosy home.

The Maddock Family, September 2017
The property is ideal for a quiet getaway. The location is scenic. There is easy access to shopping facilities in Clifden. From a self catering point of view the property is excellently fitted out the The nearby beach is wonderful.

Scuvee party, October 2015
Beautiful setting
The setting is absolutely beautiful, surrounded on both sides by the Atlantic with views of the mountains of Connemara on one side and Inishbofin on the other.
Quiet corner without any sound that will appeal to lovers of starry skies.

Kingman party, July 2015
Stunning peaceful seaside location
Peaceful location with wonderful sea and sky views. About a 5 minute drive to tiny harbour town of Cleggan. Ferry to Inishboffin available as well as pubs, a take away and one small store. 15 minute drive to the lovely town of Clifden with all necessary amenities and great restaurants and pubs as well as bus connections. On the street pay parking in Clifden. Hikes, horse and boat trips nearby. Must have your own vehicle. Washer and dryer available. Often very windy and rainy in this area, bring appropriate clothing.

Mr Arthur's party, May 2014
Not withstanding the property being a bit tired, we would certainly book it again as the location is truly amazing. We had a great week.

Mr and Mrs Doyle, March 2014
Property located in an excellent location with wonderful scenery. Good area for pets and locals are very friendly. Not much to offer in winter months but still had a great time and a must visit is on the cards. Loved it, thanks.

Ward, October 2013
We had a wonderful time, the cottage was wonderful!

The Powell family, September 2013
Just wonderful! We arrived at the cottage on a misty, murky afternoon. We were a couple of hours early but let ourselves in. The cottage was clean and tidy and perfectly suited the two of us and our little dogs. After a long drive from the ferry it was kettle on, dogs walked then feet up. The lovely girl who looks after the cottage, popped in and made us feel welcome despite our early arrival.
The cottage is fairly small but has two good sized bedrooms (each with a large double bed and a single) and two shower rooms. The kitchens/diner/lounge is well equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave and even a coffee maker. There is a large comfy couch but not very good tv reception specially when it's windy! The best bit though is that you can see the ocean out of every window. Outside is just concreted but there is a lovely little deck with table and chairs, perfect for sipping your morning coffee and inhaling the smell of the sea. The following morning we woke to glorious sunshine, stepped outside the front door and were confronted by the most spectacular views imaginable. A perfect little crescent beach a stones throw from the door, the little red Cleggan ferry churning up the bluest of water on it's way to Inishbofin and almost a 360 degree panorama of ocean. The area itself is perfectly located for exploring Connemara although we found plenty to do close by. Less than a five minute walk from the cottage is Rossadillisk Harbour and it's gorgeous beach with crystal clear water, perfect for swimming or just taking in the lovely views. The small fishing village of Cleggan (less than a mile away) has some great pubs, one of which serves some gorgeous seafood and is an easy walk from the cottage but take a torch if you intend to walk back at night. It is also where you can get the ferry to Inishbofin. The town of Clifden is about 15 minutes away by car and has pubs, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. It's a very pretty town and we went there everyday to get our cappuccino fix in one of the cafes. This was a perfect place to unwind and take things easy and we did just that.

The Soraya Family, August 2013
The location of the property is fantastic. The view from the patio is very beautiful, close access to sandy beaches. A great place to relax or have nice walks.

Snowden family, July 2013
The location and a sample of the best of Southern Ireland then this is the place to visit. The property interior is beginning to look a little tired and in need of TLC. The directions finding the cottage in Cleggan could be much improved.

The Roe Family, August 2012
Great place to stay if you want peace, and quiet. Beautiful views and walks from the door. Nearest shop/pub/village are about 2 miles away. Nearest town about 12 km away, and ferry to Inishbofin good.

The Richardson Family, August 2012
Fantastic setting, lots to do and see. Brilliant walking. Cottage is magical spot with wonderful views. A great place to relax and spent time together.

Mrs Patricia Ball, June 2012
If you want acres of sand and beach to yourself - with just a few friendly locals thrown in - then this is the perfect place. Add to this the loughs and mountains of Connemara and you are in paradise.

Mr John Lynn, May 2012
Peaceful, and quite perfect for walking the dogs, close to the Beach

The Cregan Family, March 2012
Lovely area, lots of good restaurants and pubs. Excellent beach and hill walks for us and our 2 dogs.

Ruth, October 2011
The location of the cottage was stunning. The view from the patio outside were beautiful. It was lovely for walks on the beach and scenic drives.

The Gardner Family, October 2011
Beautiful views. Felt peaceful and out of the way without actually being isolated. Feels like a retreat. Close access to sandy beach, rock pools, kids aged 6 and 8 loved it.

Mrs Poole, September 2011
It was all your description said it would be. We were very happy with customer care at Imagine Ireland.

The Clark family, August 2011
Fantastic location, clean and tidy, good facilities, really lovely place. Easy to use website, good information and friendly staff.

The Garland Family, July 2011
As a family of four 2 adults, 2 small children and a dog, it was the ideal holiday for us.Just metres from a beautiful beach made it for us,and its setting is just spectacular. Nice cosy,neat house in the heat of Connemara,would go again.Couldn't falut it.

Ball Family, July 2011
This is a place for people who like quiet (almost private) sandy beaches right beside their accommodation, with beautiful sea views out to islands from their armchairs. In July, the little fields bordering the track to the cottage are a mosaic of many different wild flowers. Thanks Imagine Ireland!

Eimear, March 2011
The cottage was perfect exactly what we were looking for. And the dogs loves it too

Joan, November 2010
The cottage was in a coastal area with the small village of Cleggan nearby. There are various small, quiet beaches near Kylemore Abbey and gardens and Connemara National Park. We walked our dogs on the beaches, visited the nearby town of Clifden and other small villages. There a re quite a few walking and cycling routes signposted around the area.

Jacqueline, County Tyrone, July 2010
Quiet, peaceful, beautiful beaches, scenery, good walks, this cottage has an ideal setting.

Miss Michelle Spence, June 2010
Best part of the holiday property was the beach and the view. The area was beautiful! We went for walks, paddeling in the sea, seal spotting, and eating seafood. The Penninsular to the west of the cottage for seal spotting. Griffin's bar in Clifden for live music and Mitchell's restaurant in Clifden. Stunning setting.

Michelle, June 2010
A beautiful part of Ireland! We went walking, paddling in the sea, seal spotting, eating seafood and drinking Guiness. The Peninsula to the West of the cottage is great for seal spotting. As for eating out, I would recommend Mitchels in Clifden and Griffins Bar for live music.

Marcia, Co Wicklow, June 2010
Location - access to beaches, views, not far from shops. Perfect if one wants to get away from 'it all' and still very near all the famous sights. I was in this cottage last year and will go again.

Michael, May 2010
The cottage is ina very quiet area. It is located around 2 miles to the nearest village and 1 1/2 miles to the nearest shop or pub! Th ebest place we ate out at was Mitchells restaurant in Clifden which was about 8 miles away. Would recommend touring the area and Kylmore Abbey is very interesting and there are lots of white beaches nearby.

M Barrett, May 2010
We had a superb time. The Irish Boffin and Kylemoore Abbey are worth visiting. We also went walking, fishing, visited the beaches and went on some scenic drives. Would recommend Olivers in Cleggan, they do great food.

Louise , May 2010
The area is beautiful - wild and unspoiled with views to die for. We love Connemara. We walked along the beautiful beaches, visited Clifden to shop, toured round, visited grave on Omey Island of the fishermen lost in the Cleggan disaster. Would recommend Walsh's Bakery/Coffe Shop in Clifden - Bailey's cheesecake and eclairs! We had some lovely light lunches. The Curragh Cafe in Letterfrack was nice and so was Oliver's pub/restaurant in Cleggan.

Mrs Louise Pitcairn, May 2010

Mr M Barrett, May 2010
The setting was the best part, and the area was superb. Would recommend Oliver's in Cleggan. Would recommend this property for its tranquility.

Mr Michael Fallon, May 2010
The whole situation was the best part. Klymore Abbey very interesting, lots of white beaches and very scenic. Cannot recommend any pubs from local area but Mitchells restaurant in Clifden is very good, about eight miles away.

Mc Lelland, September 2008
The views and the location to the beach was fantastic. Very comfortable cottage and the dogs loved it. Clifden is a lovely town and the locals are great. Oliver's Bar in Clifden has great seafood.

Dorian, June 2008
The location and the setting was amazing. The area was beautiful and rugged with ,lovely beaches and good walking not to mention great views from the cottage. Off the Square Restaurant in Clifden offers excellent food.
