We spent a wonderful weekend at Carol's beautiful house. The house is very secluded and peaceful and was ideal for a quiet and relaxing weekend. It was a perfect base for exploring Connemara and is close to some very nice walks around Lough Corrib. Highly recommended and we hope to return.

A most beautiful place for a timeout with spectacularly unspoilt view to a lake, mountains, green hills dotted with an abundance of sheeps - and last not least a charming donkey. Thank you Carol, we defintely felt at home at your place!

A very spacious home in stunning, secluded surroundings. We loved the nearby village (there's a great store stocking local produce that does amazing bread in particular). The views from the property are breathtaking. We had a lovely time & really enjoyed the fire & a game of scrabble in the evening!

I was born in Galway and have been living in England for the last fourteen years. I still long to return to Ireland but until that day arrives I am sharing my home so that others can enjoy it!
