About This Listing
A luxurious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom on Clifden harbour. 1100 sq ft of beautifully finished space. Private, but only 200 yards from the town square with supermarket, restaurants, shops and pubs. Fully equipped kitchen and high end linen and towels.
Only 2 minutes walk from the square in Clifden, but when you walk down a series of 43 steps you feel as if you're in a different place. Helen's Hideaway is very secluded and the everchanging harbour landscape (it's tidal) shall soothe your mind. Or, maybe not, if there's a huge Atlantic storm! Then you'll appreciate the warmth indoors.Turn on the electric fire, and watch it through the glass.
Other Things to Note
Sleeps 4. I take booking for a minimum of two nights from September to June and for a minimum of 4 nights for July and August. Hot water and heating (underfloor) is included. Other electricity usage is charged at 25c per unit.
The entire apartment has underfloor heating so if you feel comfortable taking off your shoes, it would be great! Leave the kitchen clean and tidy, if you're leaving early it's fine to just put everything in the dishwasher and turn it on. Bring the bin bags up to street level and leave outside the garage door.
From May 27 - Jun 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
This more than lived up to our expectations, with the gorgeous views - even from both bedrooms - and spectacular locations. Two bathrooms was a particular luxury, when travelling four people! Helen was very good at handling communication and hand-over of keys and apartment! We give our warmest recommendations.
Helen sent great information and the apartment was just as described; hidden away, but minutes from town, spacious with everything we needed. The bed was sooooo comfy and enormous. We'd definitely recommend it.
Great location being right in town and with private wide harbour view. Comfortable beds and lots of room. Good home base for a really interesting area to explore
We had a lovely stay at Helen's Hideaway. The apartment was just as described and the heated floors, electric fireplace, and soaker tub were welcome after a wet and windy hike in Connemara National Park. Very convenient location to town, with a market right around the corner. We did not meet Helen, but she kept in great touch before and during our stay and provided instructions for an easy arrival.
Our stay at Helen's flat was great! Everything is as advertized and the location is fantastic for walking in the mountains, and just a block from Clifton's square with great bars, restaurants, and shopping. Communication was very easy and I would recommend the flat for anyone looking for a great place to stay in Connemara.
Thank you for making a magical stay happening! Thanks for being always in touch. All the best
