Holiday Rental House
Description As such this is one of Clifden's listed buildings and many of the original features remain, including the large stone fireplace, the exposed stone walls, old pine floors, doors and the original pine staircase. Clifden is a lively and friendly town with excellent restaurants, authentic pubs and nice shops. It's a 1-minute walk down to the high street. This is an excellent base for touring the Connemara, a gorgeous and haunting area. There's much to see and do here. There's golf, of course. The beaches are beautiful, empty and clean. At every turn, you'll see glorious scenery. There are Irish craft shops, many ancient Celtic sites and opportunities to ramble in the Twelve Bens. Children are warmly welcomed to this property. This house books very fast so we suggest you book early....Description As such this is one of Clifden's listed buildings and many of the original features remain, including the large stone fireplace, the exposed stone walls, old pine floors, doors and the original pine staircase.

This house books very fast so we suggest you book early. There is a pay as you go wifi dongle at the house or most restaurants cafes have free access just down the street. Layout The ground floor's open plan allows one to take in the scope of the public rooms upon first crossing over the threshold. The atmosphere is very comfortable and casual. In the sitting room, large stone arched palladium windows allow plenty of light and the fireplace adds visual and actual warmth. This is a perfect room for entertaining or just sitting quietly with a book. There is a TV and DVD player. The galley kitchen is to the right of the entryway and although not huge, it is a cook's kitchen with everything close at hand and equipped with all you should need. The adjacent dining area seats 8 comfortably at an old refectory pine table. There is a small utility room that houses a cloths washing machine and separate dryer. All four bedrooms are en suite (with W.C. and with shower/shower-over-bath). Two of the bedrooms are on the main/ground floor. One is off the front entrance hall with a 4ft6”/1.37m double bed, very nice appointments and a cute little stone ensuite with shower. The other bedroom, has a double bed with ensuite shower-over-bath, is at the back of the house, beyond the living room. There are two staircases, one on either side of the house. The original pine staircase, near the dining area, leads up to the open balcony sitting area which overlooks the living room. The spiral staircase, located just at the front entry way, leads directly to one of the upstairs bedrooms, a spacious room with stone walls a king size bed (2m) and an extra of 1.37m . This room is ensuite with shower. The other upstairs bedroom is on the opposite side of the balcony sitting area and accessed via the pine stairs. It has a 5ft/ 1.52m bed with a spacious ensuite with shower-over-bath and also has an extra double bed. All the bedrooms overlook a nice grassy area behind the house. The back lawn area is not level and does not have a patio. You can eat casual meals in a designated area at the side or at the front of the house where there is a picnic table/bench and outdoor chairs. It's fun to look down onto the town from this perch.

We landed in Dublin at 4 a.m., attended Mass in Galway Cathedral by 9 a.m., and gazed in sleepy-eyed awe as we traveled through Connemara on our way to Clifden. Was it the joy of finally having a place to lay our weary heads that...More
