Great location for visiting Connemara. Located in Cashel Bay on the sea

I just returned home from a ten day driving tour of Ireland. I traveled with my boyfriend (mid 40s) his mother (mid 60s), his sister (early 40s), and my father (mid 50s). They left the lodging to me (early 30s) - I always make the plans. I have good taste, I have experience in the hospitality industry, therefore they trust me. But that doesn't mean I don't still get nervous when given the responsibility of arranging the accommodations...
Our last three nights were spent at this spacious, quiet, clean, warm, former B&B in Cashel. I would describe this house as picturesque. It was well decorated and every room had the most stunning view of the magical bog land outside. Each window, was draped in luxurious linens, making privacy of the utmost importance. I should also mention that the kitchen was very easy to navigate - we made breakfast every morning. From Cashel, we were able to drive to all of our must-visit towns and must-see sites, like the Cliffs of Mohr, the Burren, Roundstone, Clifden, Galway, Leenane, Cong (and more) - all within a reasonable amount of travel time. Mona was wonderful to work with from the start - and very patient as we were trouble shooting with airbnb. Karen was a pleasure to meet and chat with as well - her tour of the house was much appreciated. And John was a helpful source too - he called to check on us, and gave us some great tour info. We left Cashel and headed back to the States feeling rested, relaxed, and recharged.
I give this house my highest recommendation for accommodations in CO Galway.
