This house was just what we hoped for! Clean, airy, private and comfortable place to relax and yet within walking distance of town for a nice meal and a look at the water. We would definitely recommend the wooden house. Thanks!

We are very sad to leave the wooden house after a fantastic 3 day stay. We had fantastic weather - a rarity in March in Ireland! The town of Roundstone is lovely and we got to know all the pubs and restaurants. The house is perfect - spacious, warm, quiet, peaceful. We will definitely be back.
