A two story terraced cottage which has been restored to a high standard. It's located in the center of Roundstone on Marrine 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 Space

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

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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

Getting around

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.

  • Cette maison est vraiment très sympa. Elle a été très astucieusement restaurée avec de très beaux matériaux et beaucoup de confort. Nous avons laissé derrière nous à l'usage des personnes qui nous suivraient quelques petits objets qui nous ont manqué sur place comme un saladier, un grand couteau (pour les amateurs de homard), quelques cintres en bois. Globalement nous avons énormément apprécié cette maison qui est idéalement située pour explorer l'ensemble du Connemara.
    Pour les courses, mieux vaut les prévoir à Galway (très bon Marks & Spencer) ou à Clifden (Supervalue). Pour les amateurs de homard, nous avons pu nous en procurer auprès du beau frère de la dame de la supérette qui est pêcheur ! (à une douzaine d'euros le kilo !)
    Les assiettes de crevettes d'Aran (qui sont en fait des langoustines) servies au Pub O'Dowds sont à tomber et à un prix très raisonnable.

  • Nous avions été charmés par le descriptif et les photos du cottage, et l'expérience a été conforme à ce que nous attendions.
    Nous recommandons le cottage !
    Juste un petit détail, la carte dans le descriptif du logement n'indique pas le bon endroit, pour ceux qui séjourneraient dans ce logement, le cottage se trouve vers le centre de Roundstone (pour ceux qui utilisent un GPS, les coordonnées : (phone number hidden)).

  • Mark was very easy to deal with. The house was nice in a fantastic location.

  • The cottage is in a great location in the heart of village. We travelled with a three year old and a five month old and the cottage is a 2 minute walk to the village playground which was a big hit! It was also very nice being able to walk to the bars and restaurants in the evening. We were very lucky that the weather was great as the cottage may have felt a bit cramped if we had been stuck inside. There was a bit of a mix up with the cleaning of the cottage which was an unfortunate start to the holiday but overall we had a great time and would return in the future.

  • This is a great cottage in a wonderful village and we enjoyed our stay there. We did have a problem finding the place, assuming 'Bijou Cottage' would be enough-it so wasn't! Make sure you get precise directions, and your stay should be stress-free.

  • This was our second time at the cottage and it was great, once again. It's very cosy, yet modern, and the location is amazing. The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need and it's just like in the photos.

    Roundstone is a very convenient location if you want to explore Connemara. You're a short drive away from all the most important places in Connemara but if you don't feel like driving (or cycling), Roundstone has a few pubs, restaurants and cafes and if the weather's nice, its great place for walks.

    I highly recommend the place.

  • A lovely house in a beautiful part of the world. We enjoyed a very relaxing break in Roundstone it's a great way to get away from everything.

    December 2013
  • The place was very cosy - the fireplace in the evenings with some nice jazz and wine makes you disconnect completely from the day to day routine. For the day, you are so close to an amazing scenery. We had a great time and we highly recommended it.

    Enjoy beautiful Ireland !

  • Mark's cottage is beautifully renovated and is very well equipped. Roundstone is a very nice little town, lying in the beautiful Connemara landscape. There's lots to do in surroundings (Gurteen/Dog Bay, Connemara National Park where you can do a lot of hiking, Errisbeg mountain, Clifden, Sky Road). There is Wifi at the O'Dowd's Pub/Café (but pretty slow). Hope to be back some day.
