Stayed here with several others on a family holiday in August. The property was lovely with beautiful views as really just next to the sea. The walks all around the area are stunning and everyone is friendly. Shops are about 2/3 miles away and they have most things necessary, though Mrs Connolly-Green had put a welcome pack of food and wine in the house already.
Will definately return.

“If you want beautiful scenary and beautiful people you'll find both here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We were lucky enough to spend the first week of July in this stunning property,
surrounded by beautiful scenary and very friendly people. Riona is a brilliant host,
very informative and friendly and made us feel very welcome!
The house is a well renovated property with modern interior and all the
necessary facilities and it has to be said - the most comfy beds ever!!
There are three bars in the nearby village of Carna, along with Carna Bay Hotel, which
serves very reasonably priced dinner including locally caught fresh fish, home made
soup and delicious desserts. There was a trad session on while we were there,
complete with irish dancers which really made the night.
We travelled around Connemara during our week and I would highly recommend doing this just to show how beautiful an area it is.
We celebrated my birthday evening in Clifden, and had dinner in Mitchells, which is a gorgeous seafood restaurant, and went across the road afterwards for Traditional music in Griffins Bar, where we had the best nights craic!
While staying in Bru Na Mara I would recommend going to Kylemore Abbey, a great walk with spectacular views, the Connemara Bread Basket in Letterfrack, cheap, cheerful and delicious lunches and dinner, Roundstone for the best Seafood Chowder in the West of Ireland and if you are looking to do a little travelling of course - beautiful Westport, Co Mayo.

I would highly recommend this holiday and would like to extend our greatest thanks to Riona from the Timoney family for a fantastic week. We hope to see you again!

“Remote and peaceful place - if you like countryside go for it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

"Sitting on the dock of the bay"....
Just one song, that jumped to my mind when I was sitting at the Pier of Bru Na Mara enjoying the low evening sun and the tide.
The place is a bit remote but the effort is awarded with serenity, spectacular views in the evening, quiet countrieside and relaxing walks and beautiful beaches nearby.
The Anna Cottage is a lovely renovated old cottage with an airy touch thanks to roof windows and a fresh interieur.
We enjoyed our stay very much! Riona is a well organised and very friendly host, who was always open to answer questions and provided us with information on what to do in the area. Shops are only 10 min away and some great restaurants and pubs only 15-20 min drive away. Riona will direct you.
Our daughter loved to play with the friendly dog and it seemed that the hosts did not mind our "active" daughter. We also enjoyed the chats with neighbours and the fishermen coming in at the pier.
Unfortunately we had no clue what to do with the shell fish we got on our last evening so we gave it away to another family who stayed at Bru na Mara.
Riona, thanks a lot, we liked your place very much!
p.s. I did not add more photos, because the selection provided by Rioina is complete and realistic.
