Fantastic view in Connemara, Ireland

House in the heart of Connemara, overlooking Ballinakill bay and mountains. The house was designed to maximize a magnificent panoramic view. There are three bedrooms - two double and one with one single bed. At the back of the house, there is a conservatory (sun room) and an outside terrace for barbecues in summer.
Une maison au coeur du Connemara, avec vue sur Ballinakill bay et la montagne. La maison a été concue pour mettre en valeur la vue panoramique (voir photos). Il y a 3 chambres - 2 avec lit double et une avec 1 lit simple. A l'arriere de la maison, nous avons fait une terrace, avec possibilités de barbecue en éte, et une véranda couverte.

Our Neighbourhood

We are within walking distance of a beautiful secluded beach, and 10 minutes by car from some beautiful walks in the mountains, or along lanes looking out over the bay. Connemara is a beautiful region, with very different landscapes as you go south towards Galway along the coast.
Nous sommes a quelques kilometres d'une petite plage tranquille et a 10 minutes en voiture des chemins de randonnée en montagne ou au bord de la mer. Le Connemara est une région magnifique, avec des paysages tres variés - plus sauvage vers le sud avec des rochers a perte de vue. (entre Clifden et Galway).

About Our Family

We are a mature couple and have two dogs - a labrador and a Westie (West highland terrier) - Archie and Ruby. The dogs can go to a dog-sitter during your stay. If you like dogs, Archie the labrador can stay with you if you want. As this is such a beautiful area, walking the dogs is a great opportunity to get out and explore the surrounding area.


It wouldn't be possible to live comfortably here without a car - so we would be happy to exchange cars, or allow use of our car ( a Skoda Yeti) during your stay. There is a village with a few shops about 5km from here, and the main supermarkets are in Clifden (10km). Clifden is also a very busy town in summer and has a good selection of restaurants and pubs with traditional Irish music. On rainy days, you may want to visit one of the bigger towns - Galway (100km) or Westport (50km).
Il serait difficile de vivre ici sans voiture, donc nous sommes prets a mettre notre voiture (une Skoda Yeti) a votre disposition. Il y a un village avec quelques petits magasins a 5km d'ici, les supermarchés se trouvent a Clifden (10km). Clifden est une petite ville animée (en été) - on y trouve de nombreux restaurants et des pubs ou on joue de la musique traditionnelle. Les jours de pluie, vous serez pt-etre tenté de visiter une plus grande ville - par exemple Galway (a 100km) ou Westport (a 50km)
