As recommended, we called the owner Maurice to agree how to pick up the keys. I was given a warm welcome & told to pick up the key from Ryans Cafe!
We had had a long tiring day. arriving early evening quite anxious to find the house and set up.
No need to have worried. Ryans cafe is open till around 9 pm, so it was perfect.
Maurice's wife Aisling - (an Irish name meaning dream,vision) is a good description for so many reasons.
The house was super it met our expectations, for myself, my husband & a dear friend.
The house is set in a small courtyard without views, but walk down the alley to the High St, look to the right & find yourself faced with a spectical of the tiny fishing harbour of Roundstone. A different vision every day. A joy.
Parking was on the road, it was not a problem. Our Ford Focus could get down the alley but very very tight, only just able to turn round at the house.
Roundstone is a town of character, full of some of the kindest, most welcoming people you could wish to meet. We loved it.
The Connemara coast is an adventure evey day. Close to the Connemara Smoke House, well worth a visit - open to for a demonstration on a Wednesday afternoon.
Booking recommended, a £5 charge. Super value even if you're not to keen on fish.
Kylemore Abbey well worth a visit, the house is spectacular, overlooking the lake.
The gardens are wonderful. The pottery made by the nuns is lovely, we brought some home.
Go into Clifden, lovely, lovely town with lots happening. Visit Walsh's bakery for a coffee & a cake or go over the road to Mitchells for super, great value food. Wonderful menu, fantastic fresh oysters.
Abby's cottage is spacious, modern, very clean house. I'm a light sleeper and my only comment is the water system could be a little noisy.
It has all mod cons. WE WILL MOST CERTAINLY RETURN.
