“Lovely place set in a lovely scenary”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We looked for a quiet place with an ocean view and choose the cornerstones. lets make one thing clear. there is no ocean view (unless you are willing to walk for 5 minutes).
the place is impeccably clean, the room is very nice. the shower is great and the breakfast is to die for. as an added bonus you get the Irish hospitality of Eithna, the owner and one of the nicest people we had the pleasure to meet during our stay in Ireland.

bottom line - highly recommended

We stayed here after attending a wedding close by. It is a lovely house, very tastefully decorated, creative touches everywhere. Nice quite location, yet close to Letterfrack and reasonably close to Clifden. Very welcoming, wonderful breakfast, definitely better than even top class hotels. Ethna - the owner also makes home-made jam, as I do, but I bought her marmalade, in a nearby supermarket, it is delicious.

We couldn't have asked for more. Spotless bedroom, friendly hosts. It was the attention to detail and the hosts' genuine enjoyment in what they do which made Cornerstones special. Great breakfast, loved the "today's special" menu, different everyday. Be sure to try prunes infused in tea and orange...

From the moment we entered this marvelous B+B we felt right at home! Eithna greeted us and escorted us to our lovely appointed room with window box and stunning views of the Connemara. She personally gave us every bit of information about the region to make our time in this beautiful area of Ireland simply priceless! Eithna and Sean's meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the B+B and the picturesque grounds. The breakfast offerings were absolutely delicious and their presentation wonderful. We are very grateful for a wonderful stay!

We stayed in the lovely room other travelers have posted pictures of (blue/green pillows on bed) with a window seat and excellent view of the water. One of the daughters politely greeted us and showed us our room. Nice size with enough room for our luggage and an en suite bathroom. Eithna later offered us discount tickets to Kylemore Abbey and other recommendations of what to see in the area. After checking in we had time to head into Clifden for dinner at a pub with live music and to drive the Sky Road (beautiful country & waterside drive) before heading back for a comfortable night sleep. In the morning I enjoyed my poached eggs and toast with an assortment of homemade jam. Lovely stay!

Room Tip: We were given a room with a view of the water in the distance with the blue/green colored pillows an...

Eithna & Sean who run this B&B deserve every accolade they can get for making our stay so enjoyable and for making us feel totally at home.

The bedroom was comfy & had everything we needed and was delightful decorated as was the house!

Their warm welcome made our short stay and first in Ireland a very special memory for us.

Our special thanks for the very irish breakfasts including a thoughtful picnic breakfast left for us at 4am for our early drive back to Knock.

And not forgetting some of Eithna's jams we went home with that were sourced from local fruit pickings.

A BIG THANK YOU!!!
