About this listing
A two story terraced cottage which has been restored to a high standard. It's located in the center of Roundstone on Marine Terrace. It's a short walk to all bars, restaurants and shops and a two minute drive from beaches in Dogs Bay and Gurteen.
The traditional exterior belies the modern airy interior. Downstairs, a large open plan living, dining area with galley kitchen. Upstairs, two double bedrooms and a large bathroom. It will comfortably accommodate two couples
The house doesn't really lend itself to sharing, so it's being let in its entirety. All yours to enjoy!
Interaction with Guests
My primary residence is elsewhere so I probably won't get to meet you. My young associate, Richard, handles bookings and access to the property, so you'll hear from him when you make an inquiry.
Roundstone is a little gem. It has a great selection of pubs and restaurants (check out O'Dowds in particular) and is minutes away from two beautiful beaches. The journey from Galway city passes through spectacular scenery in Connemara. A great base for alls sort of outdoor pursuits - cycling, walking and watersports
There's a bus service from Galway, but realistically the best way to get here is by car (or bicycle!). There's plenty of free parking right beside the house.
Once you're installed, most amenities are accessible on foot or by bicycle.

Souhaitant contacter Marc avant notre arrivée, j'ai découvert que le numéro mentionné sur le site était inconnu des opérateurs téléphoniques. Un message de la part de notre hôte aurait été souhaitablesachant qu'aucune indication nous a été transmise concernant l'endroit de récupération des clés et que personne était pour nous accuiel.C'est Une voisine du logement qui est venue nous aider à trouver la clé.
Bien que le logement soit de bonne qualité et bien situé, il y a un manque d'entrien et de néttoyage entre les locations.
Le ménage a été fait très sommairement réalisé( restes de nourriture sur les canapés, traces dans la salle de bain, mégot de cigarette sur le pas de la porte de fenêtre)
D'autre part, il n'y avait pas d'instruction conscenant le fonctionnement des divers appareils dans le classeur.
Il a fallu chercher dans tout le logement pour avoir de l'eau chaude, faire fonctionner les éléments de cuisine, etc.. la hotte ne fonctionne pas.
Nous sommes toujours en attente d'une réponse de Marc concernant une aide sur l'utilisation de la machine à laver le linge transmise via le site Airbnb.
Deplus, le ballon d'eau chaude ne régule pas la température. Nous l'avons arrété car l'eau bouillait à l'intérieur. Cette apareil est donc à réparer en urgence car dangereux: risque de s'ébouillanter et de montée en pression de l'eau dans le ballon..
Nous sommes très déçus de ce logement.
The cottage was well located in the middle of the pittoresk town Roundstone, at walking distance from several pubs and restaurants. We felt very welcome by the fresh fruit that was placed on the table and a vase with flowers in the corner of the dining area. The cottage has a stylish, modern interior and everything was clean. Although the weather was pretty bad during the days we stayed in Roundstone, we had a very good time. The surrounding nature is overwhelming and the cottage provides a good start for hikes and swimming adventures.
The cottage was a great place to spend a few days. Located right in the center of the town, walkable to many pubs. Great location for exploring the area.
The cottage was clean upon arrival and though we never met Richard, he was very communicable.
Note that there is no wifi!
A very nice "Bijou" at Roundstone, a modern and confortable house in a typical harbour village. For us french, some more coocking utensils would be better ;))
It is a very nice country to discover with amazing beaches and typicals views of the Connemara !!
Thank you for the classical cd selection !
Mark, as expected we had a great (website hidden) was comfy,everything worked. Had most of our fish dinners and lunch at The Shamrock which was another great find.Bose system with CDs were grand and the house is well situated for day trips Thanks for a great stay.
This was the first cottage where we were not met by our host, so we felt a bit like latchkey kids letting ourselves in. Nevertheless the instructions were good and it wasn't a problem. The cottage was spacious and light with everything we needed. The TV didn't work, but who needs TV in such a great location? The cottage was close to the shops, bars and restaurants of Roundstone which was great after long days touring the delightful area. The house was pretty much as described; in fact inside it was much larger than we had anticipated. Four people would have been very comfortable.
About the Host, Mark
I live in Galway city. The house in Roundstone is my vacation bolthole, but I also rent it out from time to time. I have a young associate, Richard , who helps me with bookings and with arranging access to the house so you'll hear from Richard when you make a booking.
