“Exploring Connemara”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We spent three great nights here and enjoyed three great breakfasts. We felt very welcome and Catherine, the landlady, was helpful with tips of where to visit. She was so kind to post on clothes we forgot and left in the wardrobe! The room with en suite was very clean and comfortable and the views were fantastic. Just a short drive from Roundstone, it's an ideal location to explore Connemara.

This by far was the best bed and breakfast i have had the priveledge to stay in. The views were fantastic, the area outstanding and the facilities were excellent. Very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms with a large communal living room looking out at a fantastic view. Tea, coffee and endless supplies of chocolate biscuits were always available. The host Catherine was so friendly and kind and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were delicious and filling, lots of home made condiments and breads, plenty of selection and the biggest fresh coffee pot i have ever seen. This bed and breakfast made my holiday!

We had stayed here 6 years ago and to choose it again for our 2013 trip was a 'no brainer'. This time we stayed for 5 nights. The house and grounds were in as new condition. The room and bath were clean and well furnished. The common room upstairs has a breathtaking view over the water to Innishnee Island. The breakfast room has the same view. The breakfast was a complete Irish breakfast or custom order. The owner, Mrs. Burke, was always accommodating and asking if there was anything we needed in addition to what she already provided. This B & B is what all other B & B's should be judged by.

Room Tip: All rooms a great, but the upstairs ones with the water view really great.

We recently stayed in Ivy Rock House for a weekend. It was located close to the Village, with great beaches only a few minutes drive .
The guest house is located on a large site with nice gardens and a great view of the sea.
We had a lovely large family room, with a spacious ensuite, again overlooking the sea. Our hostess was lovely and very helpful. We had a lovely breakfast, along with some great home made scones and home made jam! The dining room also has views of the sea.
There is a private sitting room for guests to enjoy with fabulous views, well stocked with coffee, tea and treats.
Would definitely go back again and would recommend it to anyone.

We arrived without a reservation on Thursday before Good Friday and although the owner was heading out to mass, she took us in. All the other rooms in town were booked because of a film crew, but we were the only guests in Ivy Rock which is about a 4 minute drive from town. We had a beautiful view from our room in front of the house. We drove to town that night and had a great time talking to the locals at the Shamrock, the local pub. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. We'll be back if we are ever in Roundstone again.
