The photos tell you that you are in for something quite different, and so it was. Our host is an artist who loves turning his hand to all manner of renovation projects. He has extended the original house and built extensively on the property, including gardens and fish pond. While 'finishing things off' could not be applied, it was more than made up for by the warm welcome we received and the fact that with extended family, we all had our own bathrooms and plenty of living space without feeling we were on top of each other. I loved all the art works and artistic touches around the home. An unexpected bonus, was that literally just down the road is Dunguaire Castle. We attended a lovely 4 course banquet with entertainment - a real highlight of our trip. We also enjoyed visiting the little fishing village of Kinvara also just down the road. Chateau de Ronan is well positioned for exploring the rugged Atlantic Way. Very good value for money as it can accommodate so many. If you don't mind trading luxury for location, space and a warm welcome, then you would really enjoy a stay here.
We are a family with 3 kids, all loved the house. Great owner, always helpful. Kids loved the garden and couldn't wait to get back to it each day. The house (and owner!) has great character. Great location for both Galway and Clare.

This place is like a fantastic Roadmovie came true. The host is a very polite and warm and truly wonderful Person. The amazing Casa is just right at the feet of the unbelievabel and famous BURREN and the little Village Kinvarra is the Insider tip right at The seaside with lots of little Cafés, Pubs and Gallerys and Shoppingplaces. There is always something going on and everybody is incredibly friendly.
From this little getaway you have an easy Drive to almost every Big Point of interest, so make sure to stay a few more nights.
The House and The garden are Art itsself. The cosy fireplaces, the flowers, The friendly neigbours...,You feel right at home and Thomas is an amazing Artist, just The right Kind of eccentric. We had so much Fun together, and he would always be helpful in any Way.
In The evening we would make Pizzas outside and Play The Guitar an sing together.
There a lots of possibities to Take a hike and enjoy The true ireland.
I wish i Could have Stayed for ever. I will definitly Come back Soon. Thank you Thomas, for One of The best experiences in my life!!!!
