“Cosy cottage with spectacular ocean views”

The cottage ANNA is situated in a beautiful place offering spectacular ocean views. We appreciated Riona’s warm welcome and the fact that the cottage was impeccably clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. All the suggestions made by Riona were of interest. We had a wonderful time at the beach in Roundstone, and enjoyed our trip to the Aran Islands. It is ideal place for touring Connemara and we would love to go back.

Incredible views, very tastefully furnished, comfortable, spotlessly clean, very knowledgeable and friendly host, fresh eggs and milk in the fridge on arrival. Everything you'd hope for from a Holiday Cottage and more.

“Simply the most relaxing break we have had”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the Sonas one bedroom apartment in Riona's group of cottages right next to this one.
I cant speak highly enough of the hospitality and helpfulness of our host as she spent over an hour with us sharing her knowledge of the area, this enhanced our stay and experience of the area.
The cottages sit beside a stretch of beautiful coastline at the side of a small harbour, when the weather was fine there is no better place to relax and take in the sea air.
Our apartment was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, all at great price.
We will be returning and will recommend the cottage to our friends.

“You can believe the photos”

Stayed here with several others on a family holiday in August. The property was lovely with beautiful views as really just next to the sea. The walks all around the area are stunning and everyone is friendly. Shops are about 2/3 miles away and they have most things necessary, though Mrs Connolly-Green had put a welcome pack of food and wine in the house already.
Will definately return.

“If you want beautiful scenary and beautiful people you'll find both here!”
Reviewed 20 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We were lucky enough to spend the first week of July in this stunning property,
surrounded by beautiful scenary and very friendly people. Riona is a brilliant host,
very informative and friendly and made us feel very welcome!
The house is a well renovated property with modern interior and all the
necessary facilities and it has to be said - the most comfy beds ever!!
There are three bars in the nearby village of Carna, along with Carna Bay Hotel, which
serves very reasonably priced dinner including locally caught fresh fish, home made
soup and delicious desserts. There was a trad session on while we were there,
complete with irish dancers which really made the night.
We travelled around Connemara during our week and I would highly recommend doing this just to show how beautiful an area it is.
We celebrated my birthday evening in Clifden, and had dinner in Mitchells, which is a gorgeous seafood restaurant, and went across the road afterwards for Traditional music in Griffins Bar, where we had the best nights craic!
While staying in Bru Na Mara I would recommend going to Kylemore Abbey, a great walk with spectacular views, the Connemara Bread Basket in Letterfrack, cheap, cheerful and delicious lunches and dinner, Roundstone for the best Seafood Chowder in the West of Ireland and if you are looking to do a little travelling of course - beautiful Westport, Co Mayo.

I would highly recommend this holiday and would like to extend our greatest thanks to Riona from the Timoney family for a fantastic week. We hope to see you again!
