The Connemara Cottages are truly unique, I can't say I have ever stayed somewhere like it. Great location, hidden away from everything but not too far away from town (recommend Powes Thatched Pub for dinner one evening). We didn't meet Mary but did meet Kevin who was very helpful and gave us a few ideas of things to do near by. We booked this two days before we were going to arrive and could not have been happier with it! 100% recommend it.

The cottage is situated in a spectacular landscape. It was spacious and well equipped. Our kids loved the sheep which showed up around the house every morning. We used the cottage as a base to explore the Connamarra peninsula and had a great time!

Mary was very welcoming and prompt about responding to questions and any requests we had. The house is simple and rustic, but has all the necessities you would need, including wifi and laundry. Plenty beds for all of us (we were a family of 6). Not sure if all the cottages are similar, but the bathtub upstairs is situated under the slant of the roof so an adult can't stand up, but it worked to bath the kids and there is a full shower downstairs. The area is beautiful and isolated in the hills of Connemara about 30-40 minutes from Galway. Perfect if you are wanting to get away from it all and not be surrounded by tourists. Also, the history of the Quiet Man's bridge was interesting. We ended up running the heat at night which totaled to about 30 Euros for two nights. (Wasn't bad at all since that seems to be what others mentioned in their posts). Quite worth it since we were toasty warm at night despite the chilly temps outside.

We arrived at Connemara country cottages for a weekend with friends. We were greeted by lovely people and a stunning authentic cottage up in the hills.. The area was rustic and beautiful. We had a stunning cottage that was fully equipped with everything a group or family would need. We spent the weekend tucked up beside the blazing turf logged fire. In the morning we ate our breakfast in front of the bay window watching the cows and sheep..the most beautiful scenery.. Relaxing away from all forms of social Madrid, phones and the busy cities. Peace!! Well worth a stay!

We were two families of 4 adults and 3 children who stayed in the cottage just next to the reception. Mary was there to greet us on arrival and showed us around the house. The cottage is in a beautiful location,has the rural touch and is absolutely comfy. It has easy access to the oughterard town which has got good butchers and supermarkets. There are few restuarants too. It’s a good base to visit clifden and other attractions nearby. The reception has wifi,brochures for good places to visit and eat. It also had a gamut of DVDs for the kids and some good movies. We were very satisfied with the two nights stay and would surely recommend this place. And, Mary and her husband are very hospitable.

Esta situada en lugar bonito y muy tranquilo en mitad de la naturaleza, aunque con varios cottages alrededor con el mismo fin. La casa era espaciosa y muy bien equipada. Nos recibieron muy amablemente nada mas llegar. Solo le veo tres inconvenientes: No hay Wifi en casa sino en recepción únicamente, hay que pagar extra por usar la calefacción y arriba el baño no dispone de ducha. Por lo demás, la casa es perfecta!
