We had a lovely experience at Shane's. Everything was easy and according to the plan that we determined though airbnb. We arrived late and that was no trouble for Shane who organised a key for us and left perfect directions. Breakfast was beautiful overlooking the fjord. The room was very comfortable too.
L'endroit est idéalement situé dans un cadre parfait. L'accueil de Zoé était top et plein d'activités à faire!
Location meravigliosa affacciata sul fiordo, spettacolo della natura. La struttura e' di quelle che organizzano i campi estivi multisport per i ragazzi quindi può capitare, come e' successo a noi, di imbattersi in gruppi di ragazzini provenienti un po da tutte le parti. Le camere sono belle e spaziose ed il personale gentile e disponibile: noi abbiamo avuto necessità di fare un paio di richieste e loro ci hanno sempre appoggiato e risolto. Colazione piuttosto standard in comunione con i ragazzi che si preparavano per la camminata. Divertente. Unico neo la mancanza di connessione wifi nelle camere, c'era solo negli spazi comuni. Per il resto ci è piaciuto e la consiglieremmo di sicuro
Very comfy bed with great view.
We had a decent experience here at the Killary Fjord. First off I'll say that the views are wonderful and it was a convenient stopping place for us between Ballina and Galway. On the negative side, the place had a very bad smell (like wet dog) and unfortunately opening the windows to let in fresh air only let in bugs. The room was clean but basic and the shower is not separate space...just has a downward sloping floor into a drain which I thought was slightly odd. The breakfast was very basic (cereal and coffee and a small selection on fruit). The add for this was misleading. The staff was friendly but not very present. All in all I think this place is over-priced given the accommodations.
Thank you for your feedback, we always appreciate constructive comments like yours. Firstly apologies that you did not have a completely positive experience at Killary. We are investigating the issues you had with bad smells and breakfast and will try to ensure that they are fully resolved. You stayed with us on what was an unusually quiet night and I can understand how that would appear in terms of the lack of a strong staff presence. The showers we have may seem unusual but because of our location and the nature of the activities that we offer as part of the adventure centre we have found that these showers work best for disposing of Connemara mud which gets carried in by guests quite often! However again I do apologise that you did not have the experience you expected and thank you for letting us know. We will do all we can to act upon to your feedback.
I enjoyed my stay there. I didn't really get what kind of place it was before I arrive there. Also, the name of the place is Killary Adventure Center. I had a very big room with one double bed and one sigle for my own :), bathroom was good. During my first night there were some loudy kids shouting on the corridor, but as I came from a city, it made me feel safe :), the second night, the center was almost empty...:). Breakfast is ok, cereals, fruits, bread, marmelade, juice, tea, coffee, etc.
The location is amazing! Properly in the axis of the fjord, with a view on it from the room. My things nearby such Kylemore Abbey, Connemara national Parc, Clifden is 30 minutes driving, but there's some good places to eat in Leenane, as this village grill which was very good.
Last but not least, all the staff was very very helpful and kind.
Could go back there if i return to Connemara :)
