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!
