    “We had a fabulous experience at Aras Iosgan.”

    Mary was a great host - there if we needed her. The house is exactly as described. The kitchen is superbly equipped and there are plenty of towels for the bathroom which was very helpful with two children! Mary also provided a cot and high chairs which was great. The sitting room sofas are large and comfy. Aras Iosgan is a brilliant base for exploring connemara and if you want to check out the Aran Islands the ferry is less than 10 mins drive away. Less than 5 minutes walk into the village ...

Less than 5 minutes walk into the village where you will find an excellently well stocked Eurospar (good gluten free and dairy free selection too). The chinese restaurant is excellent, so good infact that my husband and I went twice! Aras Iosgan is a Hidden gem and would definitely recommend to others. Ps - For anyone wondering if 30EUR is enough for the meter. We had more than half the money left on the meter upon leaving. Thats with 6 showers a day, cooking breakfast and dinner most days plus there was one day we stayed at home all day. Hope that helps
