    “Fantastic location, just a short walk from the harbor - Rounstone is stunning!”

    Lots to do in the area - we did an e-bike tour, clay shooting lessons, kayaking and hill walking. ...

    Lots to do in the area - we did an e-bike tour, clay shooting lessons, kayaking and hill walking. Just a couple of small niggles with the cottage: there are no heating controls, and it was often very cold. The owner has it set to come on twice a day (from the attached property), and in the colder months that isn’t enough. Also, we could not use the WiFi - we asked for the code a couple of times, but weren’t given the correct one. Carol, the owner, was warm and friendly. If the above two niggles were sorted, I would score higher.

The property

Attached to the welcoming owner's home and located in the bustling fishing village of Roundstone, County Galway, this fantastic Roundstone cottage is set entirely across the ground floor, offering an ideal property for families or groups of friends to relax in and enjoy all that this wonderful area has to offer.

The well-equipped kitchen, bright, airy bedrooms and welcoming open plan living area give this modern Roundstone cottage a homely feel.

Roundstone is an old fishing and harbour village and is known for being a muse for the many famous painters including Jack B.

Yeats.

During the day you can take a sea fishing trip from the pier and in the evening why not take a stroll down to Roundstone harbour before sampling some of Galway's wonderful seafood in one of the fantastic restaurants or pubs, just two minutes walk from your Roundstone cottage?

While there, enjoy the local music and dance at the traditional Irish nights that Roundstone is famous for!

Within easy driving distance are some fantastic beaches, the Connemara National Park, the cultural Galway city and the Aran Islands.

About the location

ROUNDSTONE, COUNTY GALWAY

Clifden 14.5 miles; Connemara National Park 25 miles; Galway 48 miles.

Roundstone, in the Connemara region of County Galway, lies on the western arm of Bertraghboy Bay. The entrance to Roundstone harbour is marked by a large stone, like an upturned bath tub, which is known as seals rock (Chloch na Ron) as seals like to clamber up onto it and bask in the sunshine. The bay itself is also often referred to as Roundstone Haven. Roundstone offers pubs, restaurants, cafés, shops and a children’s playground, plus there is a traditional Irish night in the summer and a number of festivals which take place throughout the year. Roundstone is full of historical and geographical points of interest, including the bell tower of the Franciscan Monastery, now standing in the Michael Killeen Park, and the remains of a monument to St Brendan on Inishnee, a small island in Roundstone Bay. A five-minute drive away are Gurteen and Dog's Bay beaches, plus attractions in the area include horse riding, deep sea fishing, hill walking and cycling. Just eight miles from Roundstone is the Connemara Golf Club and further afield there is great scenery to enjoy either on foot, bicycle or in the car. The lively town of Clifden has lots of interesting things to see, while the Connemara National Park is just a little further away and the city of Galway can be reached in an hour’s drive.
