This is a true luxury cottage. Excellent architectural design - a gourmand’s kitchen with views to enjoy while you cook, very comfortable bedrooms and baths, and a cozy turf-burning stove. The area around the cottage is rustic and beautiful. A gorgeous and nearly private beach, views of the mountains behind the cottage and still a good proximity to the nearby towns of Clifden and Roundstone. We stayed in December and even though the weather was volatile (we had rain, sun, hail, snow and wind) it was all VERY beautiful. So it’s definitely a four seasons cottage. There is plenty of good hiking, fishing, and touring nearby as well as creature comforts - ATM, excellent restaurants and pubs and good supermarkets in Clifden. We stayed for our tenth wedding anniversary and it was perfect, but we also think it’d be great to bring our children sometime too. There’s plenty for a family to do right outside the door.

We had a wonderful time at this magical place. The sunrises were amazing and the village of Roundstone was super charming. We loved seeing the horses and walking on the beach. There is so much to do in the area, especially outdoors. The Connemara National Park was our favorite. You will love staying here!

I hate to let a secret out but Folans Cottage is otherworldly. Do not pass up an opportunity to stay there.

The 'cottage' is absolutely beautiful. The location wonderful. We have been to Ireland 3 years consecutively now and the consensus is that nearby Clifden is our favorite village in Ireland. Nora , the lady who welcomes you and makes sure all is provided is absolutely wonderful.

Out of this world views especially if the sun shines, which we were fortunate to experience. Beautifully situated in almost the middle of no where!!! You were close enough to a small town if you needed human contact or a pub for a pint or two!!! I had a 10 year old and a 6 year old and they just loved the place especially the safe beaches and the rocks to climb on the beaches. I also had my elderly parents there too, one who likes solitude and to sit and admire the view and one who likes to walk. There was both of the above to keep them both happy. There were plenty of good walks appropriate for all fitness levels. Thank you Simon.

Folan's Cottage was an absolute dream to drive up to after taking the long & scenic route from Shannon Airport! From the ocean view, to the resident livestock (horses/sheep/cattle), to the rugged Connemara landscape, this house was the perfect location for a week away with my fiancé. Roundstone's town center and Clifden are a short drive away. We did most of our grocery shopping in Clifden's Supervalu (we much preferred this store over Clifden's Aldi). Simon was so wonderful about contacting us and providing recommendations, all of which we came to trust fully. He truly chose some top-notch spots! We especially enjoyed visiting Kylemore Abbey & gardens, Roundstone Pottery, O'Dowds Pub in Roundstone, and Ballynahinch Castle for lunch. Also, although Galway is about an hour away (beautiful drive!), we found that dining at Loam & Aniar was well worth the travel! The house is comfortable and as pictured (other than a few decorating additions). The kitchen was also easy to navigate and very convenient if you like to make coffee, cook breakfast, or have lunch/dinner at home. Overall, this house and its location (on the beach & in the Connemara) were beyond our expectations. We couldn't be happier!
