The property was exactly as described. The house is well appointed and has all modern conveniences in an incredible setting. No complaints Was al that we hoped for in a cottage by the sea for our family. No problem finding good dining and groceries in Clifden. Would happily recommend to others.

Our stay was amazing. The house was beautiful and serene. Simon gave us information about both the history of the home and activities in the area. Nora was extremely welcoming and rode her bike over to greet us the first day. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. We traveled with our 3 children ages 8, 13 and 15 and they loved exploring the beach, playing on the rocks and simply reading while hearing the waves crash. We were all extremely sad to leave and hope to make a return to Folan's cottage. Thank you for such a wonderful 10 days.

From start to finish dealing with Simon was first class, The house is incredible, warm, well stocked, very inviting, and the location is unbeatable, you cannot find anything better in Connemara. I know the area quite well and this house is by far the best!. I'll be booking this place for any future stay in Connemara.

We had a fantastic, relaxing time in Folan's cottage and it was extremely difficult for us to leave this amazing house and beautiful location after the end of our vacation. The booking, communication and the check-in were great, Nora is a fantastic housekeeper and always reachable in case you have any questions. It is nice to cosy up at the fireplace during a rainy day, swim, hike and explore the surrounding area. Nearby Roundstone is a nice place to buy fresh fish or to explore the restaurants and pubs. All rooms are nicely & stylish furnished and decorated and extremely clean and bright. Every day, rabbits, ponies and sheeps came by for a visit and we really hope to be back there soon!
