Curl up in front of a roaring open fire with a glass of hearty red and nothing but the sound of crashing waves on the shore in the background, or slide back the large glass doors, breathe in that salty air, and throw another mackerel on the barbeque.

If sitting in a bay window with views on three sides is not close enough to nature, and if the weather is behaving itself, you can slip through the glass doors and dine al fresco from the grand rustic refectory table.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Following through from the kitchen, you can take your choice from any of the three sofas in the living room.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

There is no escaping the views in the bedrooms either – more sliding panoramic glazing!
Neutral colours, warm pine panelling and under floor heating feature here and throughout the home.

Reviews

 

We had a wonderful experience at Stoney Beach in Connemara

and the process of renting with Unique Irish Homes was seamless. The house was exactly as shown, if not better, very clean, and Clodagh was delightful to deal with.
The location is spectacular and allowed many day trips in the area to kayak, horseback ride, fly fish and sight see.
We were sad to leave!

Jane Gates, August 2016

I never sent you a feedback re. Stoney Beach Lodge where we were around Easter. It’s also an incredible house in the private bay including dolphins (every day). The name of that bay is definitely not fake.
You will hear from me soon because we will definitely be back soon.

Out & About

 

This is a part of the world where the whims of the Atlantic prevail. Fabulous walks and cycle routes reveal amazing pristine beaches for swimming, windsurfing and kayaking.

A Mecca for lake and river fishing you will be spoilt for fishy restaurants.

There is so much to enjoy, we just can’t list them all, so here are just a few of our favourites…

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Here are some of our favourites…

The Locality

 

There are numerous fabulous walks, not least the famed Sky Road Loop, which passes above the cottage around the Eyrephort peninsula.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

The area is dominated by the majestic Twelve Bens (or Pins), a series of craggy mountains in Connemara National Park that are a magnet to the serious hill walker.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

For Golfers, the magnificent and scenic eighteen hole Connemara Championship Golf links is just 20K away.

Keep your eyes open for the hardy Connemara Pony. A breed collected internationally, they are known for their athleticism, versatility and good disposition.
Every July, the Ballyconneely pony show attracts people from the surrounding county to exhibit livestock and enjoy the travelling funfair.

If you are interested in Dolphins, you can do no better than visit Jans website

How to get there – Car essential..

By Air: Flights to Dublin or Shannon airports.
Shannon Airport – approx 2 and half hours from house.
Dublin Airport – approx 3 and half hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings from Pembroke/Fishguard to Rosslare.
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 4 hours from house

Clifden, known as the capital of Connemara, is just 5 kilometres away – a 10 minute drive along a narrow road or 45 minute stroll along a very scenic road.
Packed with great shops and restaurants, and catering for all shopping and craft needs, it is the central crossroads for daytrips.
Watch out for the Arts festival in late September, and Clifden Pony Show in August.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

The Connemara 100 Mile Ultra Marathon, occurs in mid August every year, and passes through Clifden. Last year the winner did it in just under 16 hours – 6.35 miles an hour!

A drive or cycle around the deeply indented coastline reveals many beaches of staggering beauty, and some of golden coral, which is formed from the skeletons of maerl seaweed. You will also discover quirky little fishing harbours; sanctuary from the huge Atlantic swells.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

On 15th June 1919 British aviators Alcock and Brown, made the first transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to Connemara. Taking less than 16 hours to complete the journey, they made landfall in what appeared from the air to be a suitable green field, but which turned out to be a bog near Clifden.
