We are renting out a 1-bedroom apartment on 2 floors with basic but lovely country house furnishings, and two bathrooms, right off the beautifully rugged Connemara coast, between Cleggan and Claddaduff. The beach is a beautiful 10-minute walk away. The place contains a spacious upstairs bedroom with a double bed and a single bed and a desk (and a view of the bog), and a downstairs living room (which can be turned into a bedroom) with a double futon bed and en suite bathroom, an kitchen and dining area. The apartment is attached to the back of a larger house, but has it's own entrance and complete privacy. There is parking available.
We are within a short walking distance of the stunning Connemara Coast with it's white sandy beaches and the small town of Cleggan, a 3 minute drive away, where you will find a shop and three pubs and a Fish&Chip shop. The historic and beautiful town of Clifden is a 15-minute drive away. In Cleggan and Clifden, where you can rent bikes, there are a number of nice cafes that offer free WiFi. You will need a car however, as public transport is too infrequent.
This is a great area for adults and kids alike (our grandchildren love it!); there are spectacular beaches nearby, the ferry can be gotten from Cleggan over to Inishbofin ((website hidden)), and walking through the colorful Connemara scenery and picking flowers and feeding horses is a treat! Nearby Cleggan (a 3-minute car ride or 20-min walk) also offers Sea and Fresh Water Angling, Horse Rising, Golf, and Boating. We have spectacular sunsets here, and this is a great area for landscape and nature photographers, and bird watching. The spectacular SKY ROAD is nearby, and please also note the annual Pony Show in Clifden in August.
The daily and weekly rate include electricity, linen and towels. Available all year round. No pets please, and no smoking. 4-day minimum stay. Please note: There is a 40 € cleaning charge per stay.

If you are searching for a quiet spot in a truly stunning surrounding landscape - this is your pick! The appartment is spacious and our host Niall was very friendly and welcoming. We would love to be back some day.
Warm welcome, nice attention (the irish jam on the table when we arrived, the baby cot and the high chair they finally found in emergency for us as we've not planned at the beginning to bring with us our baby son), the good surprise of a house which was bigger than we imagine by reading the advert... And the area of Claddaghduff which is gorgeous and very quiet (even if we still can't pronounce correctly the name of this village...), at 10 or 15 mn driving of the little town of Clifden.
