Home away from home, luxury all the way
Been here many times and it always feels like home the minute we walk through the door. Owner is so kind and thinks of everything. It's the little details like the homemade bread and chocolate brownies that are such a lovely touch. Fabulous beds and en suites with each. Close proximity to Cong and loads of scenic walks and drives nearby. Couldn't ask for anymore. Already planning the next visit. Thanks, Deirdre, for everything. Geraldine

So glad we found and booked
We have stayed in Cong many times, this accommodation we found to be the best suited to our needs. We wanted a cooking area, the kitchen has everything you need, and immecably clean. The bed is really comfortable. The space is bright and thoughtfully decorated, This site allows you the independence of privacy, quietness, total relaxation, sharing a prepared dinner as an option to save a bit on holiday expenses. Deirdre our host had prepared beautiful wild flowers for our table, home cooked chocolate brownies and a brown soda bread. We loved our stay, its a hidden gem, will be the first accommodation we check on for vacancies when we return to Cong.Sheba the lovable family dog loves retrieving things if you play with her.

A wonderful weekend getaway
Upon arrival we were greeted by Dee and we had everything we could have ever needed to make us comfortable. A fantastic location within close reach of all the scenic locations around Connemara, we would stay again. Jim and Katrin

Perfect Gem of a place with fab food to boot. 😊
Had the most fabulous stay with my 3 lady friends. Deirdre is the perfect host and the most brilliant Chef. As good as any 5 star restaurant. Her attention to detail and presentation of the food makes you want to devour it straight away. She offers a platter for starters, main course (you choose from a menu) and a desert. All indivually priced, We arrived, relaxed and Deirdre came with the food. She swoops in and presents the food and leaves in a flash. Nothing is too much trouble. The pavlova was the best i ever tasted. The accommodation is 5 star her attention to detail is perfect. Fab beds power showers, plenty of towels,Netflix, even a place out the back to enjoy the glass of vino in the sunshine. This was my 4th time returning in the last year. I have booked again for October. My sister returning for the 3rd time in two weeks. In these Covid times its lovely to go somewhere to relax unwind and enjoy the lovely food without having to dress up and head out again. Keep up the good work Deirdre.

Girls weekend
Wow! Second time here for the weekend .... an oasis away from it all with comfort. This is a hidden gem . We wanted a girls weekend to unwind and enjoy . So why did we return..... The interior is beautiful large bedroom and en-suite downstairs . All showers have good power.Upstairs 2 bedrooms en-suite off an open plan kitchen/ dining / sitting room . All the interior is fitted to a very high spec. Very tasteful furnishings with very good quality linen , towels , crockery , glassware,cutlery & utensils..The centre piece over the dining table is gorgeous.The circular dining table with glass is perfect .The beds are 5 star quality. I would describe the place as modern , comfortable with lovely pieces. There’s Netflix which is great if you stay in. Deirdre is very warm and helpful but not intrusive, who is obviously very creative as she kitted out the place and is a great chef . She also offered to drive us to the village at night so we just had to get a taxi home . On this occasion Deirdre cooked for us one of the nights and it was delicious. So Deirdre had milk, tea , brown bread , mince pies and other stuff for us on arrival. The area is so nice winter or summer with loads to see and do or just relax. 5 stars rating without a doubt .

5 star accommodation in a great location for touring.
This place is really top class and very well appointed from the decor to the bedding, no expense spared! It's a beautiful spacious, bright and comfortable house with a lovely outdoor seating area as well. The hosts, Deirdre and Jonathan, couldn't be more welcoming and helpful! There was complimentary brown bread and brownies and all the basics like tea, coffee and condiments provided. Cong itself is so beautiful and a great base for touring around Mayo and Galway. Highly recommended.
