You could not ask for a better holiday rental. The location on the quay and with the ever changing views outside the window cannot be underestimated. Anne was a most fantastic host right from my first enquiry to meeting me at the house to help our family get settled in.
The kitchen has all appliances that you could ask for and having the open fire made it extra cosy. Oh, last of all.... the beds are the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. Thanks so much, we will be back again soon.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was lovely and comfortable and spotlessly clean right on the pier in the village of Roundstone. The bars and restaurants there are all within a stones throw of the house.
It was an extremely relaxing and I am already looking at dates to return. I would highly recommend it
We had a perfect stay at the Quay house in Roundstone. The house is spotlessly clean and the views are breathtaking. The location just doesn't get any better to get a flavour of Connemara. Can't wait to go back!
Beautiful, clean, tranquil house with every home comfort in the wonderful village of Roundstone. Unrivalled views over the harbour and 12 Bens. We just adored it.

The accommodation is a 3 storey building situated adjacent to the fishing boat pier in the small town of Roundstone. Parking is available on the pier directly in front of the building. There was no problem parking in the winter but it may be a bit different during the main summer tourist season.
The ground floor measures approximately 8 metres x 5 metres and comprises a kitchen - dining area and sitting area (with open fire) and a small utility room. The dining table accommodates 5 chairs. There are extensive views from the picture window in the sitting room area over the fishing boat harbour to the mountains on the adjacent peninsular.
Facilities include a 4 burner gas hot plate, electric oven, microwave, good size fridge and freezer, kettle toaster, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Crockery, cutlery and cooking implements are provided.
There is no toilet on the ground floor. Toilets are in the bathrooms on the 1st floor and 2nd floors.
The WIFI was reliable and fast.
Electricity and heating oil are metered and paid at the end of the rental. Radiators are on each floor.
The 1st floor comprises a main bedroom approximately 5 metres x 3 metres with a large double bed, a smaller room that accommodates two single beds and a bathroom with shower over the bath and a toilet.
The 2nd floor comprises a large bedroom approximately 5 metres x 5 metres and a bathroom with toilet and separate shower cubicle.
There are views over the fishing boat harbour from the main bedrooms on both the 1st and 2nd floors. We occupied the 2nd floor bedroom and enjoyed our morning coffee sitting up in bed looking out over the harbour. Usually we managed 2 or 3 cups whilst enjoying the view.
The water in the shower was hot and the pressure, whilst not great, was adequate for a good shower and washing of hair. A hair dryer was provided. The toilet flushed well. The only off-putting issue was the condition of the grout in the shower cubicle. It was not clean.
There is a small small grocery outlet in the town that provided all the basic supplies. There are large supermarkets in the nearby town of Clifden.
There are 3 bars within a short walk of the accommodation. Each bar had it own personality. It was off season and 2 of the bars were open during the week with all three open on the weekends. Bar meals were available. The main hotel in the town was closed for the winter.
We based ourselves in Roundstone for a week and wagoned-wheeled out from there. There is a lot to see in the surrounding country side. I can recommend the location and the accommodation.
