Our room was very comfortable and there was also a lounge just for guests which was great. The lounge had a magnificent view over the sea. It's quite a way out of town so you would need to drive into town to eat. Breakfast was super and served promptly which was important to us as we were heading off for... More

Stayed here recently for a few days. Really lovely. Fantastic views from the front bedrooms and upstairs lounge. Tea, coffee and biscuits in the lounge at anytime was a great treat. Catherine was friendly and her home made scones were fantastic too. Would definitely recommend.

This is a lovely B&B in a delightful location, just a short drive into Roundstone. Our room was spacious, well-appointed and immaculate with great views, where we could watch the changing tide and the grazing sheep. Catherine, the lovely lady of the house, provided very good advice about the local area, and was very attentive about our breakfast requirements While... More

Catherine and her daughter Edel were lovely. The accommodations were superb, with hot tea in the sitting room with freshly made scones. We stayed two very rest-filled nights, and were treated to a full Irish breakfast in the morning. I enjoyed freshly toasted gluten free bread and the other member of my party enjoyed the freshly made scones and orange... More

Great location for getting away... if you are new to the area and visiting, too far from Galway to make it as a central point... but great for Clifden and Kylemore and see west side coast line. Catherine was very accommodating as a host and provided an excellent breakfast. Room upstairs back (double and single bed) was spacious, with excellent... More

Ivy Rock House is a wonderful B&B close to the beautiful fishing village of Roundstone in Connemara, and only a short drive to Clifden. We loved the large variety of breakfast options, including traditional Irish breakfast but also fresh fruit and cereals and fantastic homemade scones. Yummie! The owner Ms Burke is a very warm and welcoming host, always taking... More

This is a lovely house with a superb view from the guest living room. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable.
