“Absolutely great stay”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We are very sad to leave the wooden house after a fantastic 3 day stay. We had fantastic weather - a rarity in March in Ireland! The town of Roundstone is lovely and we got to know all the pubs and restaurants. The house is perfect - spacious, warm, quiet, peaceful. We will definitely be back.

“Great location”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Wooden House was very comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfectly located to see all the sites of Connemara. Very peaceful, just what we needed. Watch out for the friendly resident hare!

“Great location twixt village and beach!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Spacious house. Very well equipped with crockery, tea towels, tin foil, dish washer tabs, washing powder, cooking oil etc. Many houses I've stayed in before have nothing but this house has it all! We didn't need to use the wood burner as the house was warm enough but did get a BBQ in! We hit lucky with the weather and picniced on Gurteen beach 3 days in a row. The beaches are almost Mediterranean when the sun shines. We ate in roundstone a couple of nights. It's only a 5 min walk. The boys fell in with a couple of other holiday makers and attended a few football matches at the Tarmac pitch. The shamrock was great for food and music and O'Dowds...I recommend the Guinness. Be warned Vaughans (Roundstone Hotel) stops serving food at 7. They're missing a trick there.
All in all would definitely recommend. The whirly gig clothes line needs straightened, other than that...perfect!

“The best we ever had”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

After our one-week-stay in Wooden House I can totally recommend this accommodation.

The booking was very easy: availability can be checked on the Internet and there was always a quick and friendly contact to the owner during the whole process of booking, paying and even arriving. Lots of helpful information, including directions and facilities, were given yet after the payment, so we felt very well prepared about our stay. Also the payback of the security deposit was very fast. Key pickup was as easy as possible, so no time-killing checkout-ceremonies :-)

Facilities: The House was very clean, furniture in quite good condition and in a cosy and harmonious style and familiar atmosphere. The House is very well equipped - from torchlights to clothespins.The BBC and the stove were absolutely highlighting. The view trough the huge windows in the living room is amazing. We did not miss a thing and felt really like home. I do not really know what it is about -the colours,the furniture or the arrangement- but Wooden House has got an amazing atmosphere that makes you calming down and feeling secure and home.

Surrounding: Quite and friendly neighbourhood but also close to village-centre (10 minutes walk) with pubs, restaurants, a craft centre and a little shop. Right on the foot of errisbeg mountain - great for a hike and spectacular view. 10 minutes drive to the gorgeous beaches of Gorteen Bay and Dogs Bay. Half hour drive to Connemara Nationalpark with great hiking opportunities and some sightseeing-attractions like Kylemore Abbey and Heritage Centre O'Hara. So quite enough to do for one or two weeks. :-)

To summarize: It was a pleasure to be there and indeed the best self-catering accommodation we ever had. I will keep this week in my mind for a long time.
