Fantastic views of the Twelve Pins and ever changing vistas of sea and sky. Large comfortable rooms, good facilities, highly recommended for a relaxing holiday.

“Just About Perfection”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

It is hard to imagine a nicer place to stay than this. Roundstone itself (at least in quiet March) is a lovely village: pretty, with good restaurants, and superbly set in a wonderful landscape of ample water, wide empty boglands, hills and mountains. All of which are immediately visible from the windows of the lounge and the two front bedrooms of this very conformable and very well appointed house right on the quay of Roundstone Harbour. The windows are important, especially the massive one in the lounge/dining room; the light is constantly changing as one looks out across the bay towards the Twelve Pins, and it's unlikely that I, for one, would ever tire of the view. Even on the one day when we had consistently grey, wet, windy weather, there was always something of interest to look at. A tip if you are going to stay here or anywhere else in Roundstone or close-by: get yourself a copy of Tim Robinson's 'Connemara: Listening to the Wind'. It's a great book: very readable, endlessly informative and surprising (and often very funny), and once you've been to Roundstone you'll feel as if you've been walking around in that book for a while.

The Quay House was simply fantastic. The scenery from the bedroom windows is stunning, from the harbour to the Bens to the islands. Our 21 year old told me that he now understands the meaning of 'getting away from it all'. A great place to relax, walk, cycle, fish and eat great food. The house itself was perfect, spotlessly clean and with every convenience and very comfy beds. Dealing with Anne and Simon couldn't have been easier. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful house. Every convenience thought of. Incredible view. Food is excellent at local restaurants.Take a trip up to see Joyce's sheepdog demonstration. Worth it just for the scenery on the 50 minute journey.

“Surely Ireland at it's best?”

We had a fabulous week here, 5 adults easily fitted in and it was nice to have comfy seating in the lounge - so many properties we looked at in Ireland didn't seem to have this. The views were amazing from the lounge and both double bedrooms. A very dog friendly house with easy to clean stone floors and a utility room with washing machine and drier and a small park just a couple of minutes walk away for that end of the evening run. Dogs Bay Beach and Gurteen Beach are great places to run dogs. The village had a couple of shops that seemed to stock everything and some great places to eat. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. A very peaceful place but with so much going on, we can't wait to come back.

“Location and Elegance”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

My wife and I, accompanied by our two young children stayed here for 3 nights in early February. Despite being literally the only tourists in Roundstone we loved the entire experience! First and foremost, Simon's property was the highlight for us and by far our favorite self-catering property during our 2.5 week Ireland trip. The simple elegance of the decor, awesome kitchen, and amenities were all 5 star. This was the first property we have stayed with the kind of view that this property had. Completely unique, and a true taste of an authentic Irish fishing village.

The highlight for us was the continually changing scenery from the huge living room window, along with the fishing boats rising up and down with the tides. The open fireplace and ability to walk 30 seconds up the hill to replenish peat or firewood from one of the local stores was very cool. Although we planned to eat out, we ended up being inspired by the kitchen and view from it so made the easy drive up to the Supervalu in Clifden, which has everything you need. We did get take out from O'Dowd's on the last night and was impressed with the food.

Couple of recommendations - Connemara Smoke House (15 min drive from Roundstone) has amazing fresh or smoked fish at a great price. Lowry's in Clifden has a music session every Tuesday night. The secondary "interior" route to/from Clifden is spectacular and perfectly safe. Don't be put off by the primitive look of the road!

A great classy and clean property, a spectacular location, and definitely a place we will revisit in summer.
