My daughter and I just returned from a very beautiful stay at The Faul House, near Clifden, in Connemara. I had found The Faul House online, and after reading everything they had to offer I immediately made our reservations. Upon our arrival we found that The Faul House held everything their website had promised, which is rather uncommon these days. Our Hosts, Cathleen and Michael Conneely, welcomed us almost as family. Our room had all the accommodations one could hope for: comfortable, clean, and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and was presented with equal taste, as each dish was arranged beautifully, while still maintaining that "home cooked" feel. All of their ingredients, for cooking and otherwise, were supplied by their fully functional farm and greenhouse. My daughter is greatly interested in horses, as she rides them regularly, so when we heard that the Conneelys bred Connemara ponies, we were even more excited to stay with them. They allowed my daughter to care for horses as well as assist them in caring for the foals. In total, they had 10 ponies: 6 mares(one of which was a much smaller pony), 3 foals, and a little stallion named Sooty. Our stay was five days, which allowed us to observe all the people of different cultures and origin every morning at breakfast. The guests would also seek advice from our hosts on where to visit, which sites to see, etc. The ambiance of the Faul House was so much like home, and Cathleen and Michael were so welcoming! We very much look forward to returning!
