I'm a business professional interested in history, economics, and politics. I don't have a radio or television, so I surf the web, particularly YouTube, a lot.
At the weekend, I particularly enjoy coffee at the Academy.

Rory's seahore cottage is a place i can highly recommend! located right by the sea - i mean literally 20meters next to it- this is a very charming and rather big cottage! we sure had a rather splendid time - most of the time we didn't even go out at night to get dinner - instead we stayed at home and anjoyed the cozyness of that place! rory is a most pleasant man who gave us many advices on where to go and what to do which was much needed since we didn't know much of the region! alltogether the perfect start into the new year! make sure to check out this little gem of a house!
This has to be one of the best places I've stayed from airbnb. Rory is extremely kind and tentative. The cottage is just great with everything you need to stay for a while. Very relaxing and right next to the water. The sound-proof in this cottage is just beyond awesome. I love it! I almost don't want to write a good review just so I can have this place all to myself.
The apartment is located in a nice, little village with easy access to pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. Martina made us feel very welcome and gave helpful advice about the local attractions.
The apartment is very spacious, on the first floor of an older building. Great care has been taken with its decoration. Like in some hotels, the king sized bed is two singles pushed together so a little uncomfortable. We had a really good time in a great location.
Rory hat perfekt dafür gesorgt, dass wir gut die Unterkunft gefunden haben,war bei unserem Eintreffen anwesend und hat uns alles gezeigt.
Alles war im Wesentlichen so,wie beschrieben, die fehlende Kaffeekanne wurde sofort besorgt, die Räder repariert. Rory hat sich stets aller Fragen angenommen und war ein sehr angenehmer Gastgeber. Für 2 Personen war die Küche sehr gut eingerichtet, für 4 Personen, wie theoretisch möglich, wäre das Geschirr nicht ausreichend gewesen. Die Lage des Cottages ist traumhaft, der Nachmittagstee im Garten mit Blick auf die Segelschiffe ein Genuss. 1,5 Stunden nach Connemara, 1,5 Stunden an die Cliffs of Moher. Nach Galway hinein empfiehlt sich der Bus, auf Grund des heftigen Verkehrs und saftiger Parkgebühren.
The place was like in the photos. Oughterard is a small city but lovely with the river just downstairs. We recommend the restaurant called "Greenway". The bus stop is very closed to the flat and you can go take the ferry by walking too. There're min 3 supermarkets to buy stuffs to cook.
But there's no sup, shampu, clothes dryer and just one toilet paper roll for 5 days for 2 people. The internet just works in the living room. It's a big bed with two maltresses so not very comfortable..
Martina was welcome, she gave us advices for good places and tell us to ask her if we needed something.
Rory gave us lots of informations to find the place and made himself available for any answers too.
The area around Riverside apartement is beautiful, close to the river and you can walk to Lough Corribh. Oughterard is a small but very cosy village in Connemara with its beautiful landscapes. The apartement is cosy, too, and well-decorated, but it needs a renovation. Apart from that, there is everything you need for self accomodation.
We did not meet Rory, but communication with him was without any problems and he took always care that we feel comfortable. Martina, who lives in the same house, welcomed us very kind and was available for any of our questions.
Lugar bien emplazado para visitar la zona. Casa antigua con algo de humedad, internet no funciona del todo bien. Por lo demas, tiene lo necesario para unos dias.
This was a delightful apartment - especially after a long trip without a kitchen. It was great to be able to have more room. The host was so warm and welcoming; she really made me feel at home. Rory was super to find out information and help me with some of the activities I wanted during my stay. I loved sitting on the couch with the window open and hearing the stream babble. Very peaceful.
Rory was a very good host. For the start he gave us a pckage of coffe and tea and cookies and milk in the fridge :)
The house is right beside the sea and although Rory`s house is right beside you have your very private, quiet place. Any question we had he was answering by getting informations from somewhere or if we needed anything for the house he organized it.
We have nothing to complain.
The cottage was beautiful and had a fantastic kitchen. The view from the garden was incredible! This was a great spot for us to base ourselves out of to visit all the points we wanted to visit, like Galway city, Connemara Ntl. Park, horseback riding from Cleggan Riding Centre to Omey Island, and the School of Falconry at Ashford Castle. We had a really wonderful time every day and looked forward to coming back to the cottage to watch the sunset and relax. Looking forward to coming back!
Rory is a very polite, easygoing and respectful man. He enjoys a good chat and was interested and supportive with all our activities here.
Rory is a very sweet and discret person.
it was a pleasure having him home those past days.
Thank you Rory!
Seashore Cottage is in an amazing location, literally on the edge of Galway Bay, with spectacular views and mooring space for your boat!!! The apartment is fabulous - the rooms are large and wonderfully decorated and Rory's attention to detail makes this a perfect place to stay. It is in such easy reach of Galway City and Connemara and the Burren are easy day trips from here.
Rory is a wonderful host and he ensures that his guests will have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. He is also happy to provide you with information and advice on the things to see and do during your stay.
