Roundstone:

Roundstone is one of the most picturesque and unique villages in Europe.

Roundstone is one of the oldest resorts in Connemara. The village was built in the 1820s by Scottish engineer Alexander Nimmo.

In Roundstone you will find a busy little harbour, where local fishermen prepare and return with the day's catches of lobster, crayfish, crab and mackerel, plus a variety of other fish.

Roundstone is situated in the heart of Connemara, and is one of the oldest fishing villages on the west coast, and is an area of much natural beauty, as well as being the birth place and inspiration for much of Ireland's artistic creations. It has also been described many times as a "botanist's delight" as many wild flowers, rare to this country, are fo...

Roundstone enjoys an unparalleled view of the Twelve Bens and is bordered by the vast Atlantic ocean.

Dogs Bay and Gurteen Beach, set back and filled with the clearest Atlantic water can be enjoyed in this area (2 miles from Roundstone).

Whatever window you look out there is a picture to behold be it rocky terrain, the sea, apple trees or flowers. Very clean, spacious, comfortable, lovely garden, great location closs to Roundstone, beautiful beaches and hill walks.

Very comfortable cottage, with attractive sea view. No regrets about this choice. Open fire was a big attraction, especially since this Easter (2013) was very cold, though bright and sunny days on the gorgeous white beaches and in the hills. Saw hares in the garden. Hosts were very helpful and accommodating. Notes: We needed the daytime immersion on to get a hot shower. Bring your own loo paper and soap! If you come from further afield, try and sort out the payment for the electricity while you are there.
