"My husband and I had a delightful 5-day vacation at Cuach Cottage in Connemara and loved every minute of it. The cottage was a beautifully renovated and decorated Irish cottage, full of old country charm, but with all the amenities one would want (TV, fireplace, internet, washing machine etc). The cottage was impeccably clean when we arrived and we were not disappointed with our choice at all! The large open kitchen with surrounding windows that opened up onto the Connemara bogs and mountains in the distance offered spectacular views (as did the sheep that were dotting the landscape everywhere). Our bed was firm and comfortable (no saggy mattresses here thank goodness!) with crisp linens and offered us great sleeps with the country air! And once we figured out how to turn off the lights (we had a good laugh at ourselves trying to find out how to turn off the lights the first night as switches down on the baseboards are unfamiliar to North Americans), our cottage stay was perfect in every respect! Cuach Cottage is definitely on our list for any return visit to the west coast of Ireland! "

"We returned to Cuach Cottage this May for another fabulous week. Cuach Cottage is really special and when you unlatch the lovely green gate and see the whitewashed cottage with its red door and the Twelve Bens behind, you just know that it's going to be another great holiday. Liam was wonderfully competent and flexible about our arrangements - we needed to change our booking and arrive a day earlier but that was no problem and everything went smack-smooth as usual. This year there was a sunny new kitchen/living room extension which gives a fantastic vista out to the mountains. It enhances the house and although it creates a lot of space, Cuach Cottage still looks cute from all angles. Cuach Cottage has the most wonderful location and the new extension makes even more of the views.. There's plenty to do in this area so our second week was still too short. We enjoyed the walk along Clifden Harbour, amd the loop up to the castle and back. We cycled (with Mannion Bikes) out to the end of the Sky Road on an incredibly clear day. The Roundstone cycle was delightful too (lunch at O'Dowds) and we returned to Ballynahinch by bike and spent hours walking the grounds interspersed by delicious food in the Ballynahinch Pub and later scones with jam and cream; Ballynahinch gives non-residents a warm welcome! The Marconi + Alcock & Brown site between Ballyconneely and Clifden is a fantastic asset to the area giving access to this beautiful upland bog and providing fantastic information as well. We heard the cuckoo (cuach) nearly every day and saw him/her too and a fox passed by one evening while we were having dinner in the new kitchen extension. Another great week!"

"The description of the cottage was very accurate, if anything it plays down how beautiful the place is. It is a gem hidden away from the world yet only 10 minutes away from the town. A great base to explore the Connemara landscape.

The cottage is very clean, and benefits from the new extension which brings light and a lots of views of mountains and the babbling brook at the end of the garden. I can imagine it would be a beautiful place to spend a summer evening outside.

The owners were lovely and friendly, made the whole process easy and simple.

Id definitely recommend it to anyone."

"The listing description was very accurate regarding the layout of the cottage and its surroundings. The property was very clean - well maintened and greatly equipped. The town of Cliffden is worth seeing and spending some time in. The views from the sky road are stunning. I would recommend the cottage - it is also suitable for small children. "

"Nur 3 km von Clifden mit all seinen Pubs, Restaurants (Mitchells!) und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, 6km nach Ballyconneely mit Keoghs Pub und Restaurant sowie Laden, Roundstone auch nicht weit (10km?). Idyllische Lage mit eigenem Bach auf dem Grundstück, die Angelruten gehören neben allen anderen denkbaren Dingen (Grill, Waschmaschine, Küche mit sehr guter Ausstattung, Espressomaschine mit Siebträger....) zur Ausstattung dazu. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, mit einer wunderbaren Wohnküche in einem neuen Anbau mit Panoramablick auf die Twelf Bens - schneebedeckte Berge, Hagelstürme, Regenbogen, atemberaubende Wolken- und Sonnenspiele - und man müßte nicht einmal vom Küchentisch aufstehen! Empfiehlt sich natürlich trotzdem ;-) Sehr gute Betten/Decken/Kopfkissen, sehr sauber, unkomplizierter Kontakt mit Vermieter und Verwalterin vor Ort (auf englisch). Mir fällt kein einziger negativer Punkt ein."
